4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
27/10 0.33 l bottle at Hopdevil. Pours murky golden body with nice big head. Wonderful aroma of fruits with specific yeast. Flavor nice, quite sweet, not too complex though, but very full bodied. Alcohol is not really felt. May not be typical as it lacks that triple bitterness, but it’s still fantastic. Creamy texture on palate. Finish is very nice, sweet, pleasant and quite long. Another fantastic brew from this fantastic brewery.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: APR 24, 2010 Very cloudy, verging on murky. Big white head. Aroma of spiced stewed banana, some soap. Slight sour too. Palate is sticky, chewy, and tacky. Flavors are pretty nice, there is some spice to balance the sweetness. Gloriously average tripel!
Bottle...pours almost clear, lots of bubbles rising, the head is moderately stable. Is quite unattractive really with a bland golden color and lifeless head. The aroma is sweet, candi sugar, but has attendant fruit complexity with some simple plum and nectarine aromas. Palate is fizzy, prickly, way too gassy. Flavors are alright, fruity-spicy with a thankfully dry finish.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
On tap, from old notes. Pours a hazy deep gold with fluffy white foam, decent retention and lacing. Aroma is fairly heavy on banana like yeast notes with some candy-ish sugar notes and hints of coriander and Saaz hops. Flavor is fairly sweet, good bit of banana, lots of coriander, very nice hoppiness in the finish. A very complex, if not a little too sweet, Tripel

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
33 cL bottle. Pours hazy orange with a white lasting head. Small sediments floating around in the beer. Caramel malty aroma with a slight yeasty spice note beneath, minor orange peel aroma too. Spiced caramel malty flavour, somewhat astringent and far from as mellow as other triples. Finish has a rather warming alcohol finish.
