3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
This is looking good, cloudy dark orange, with a small firm head and sticky lacing that never goes away.
Aroma is nothing potent and somewhat typical of a belgian, however the taste is even more fruity than I was expecting; there are tropical fruit flavors really pushing through, and the bitterness is more than expected, and more reminiscent of an IPA - which isn’t a bad thing to me.
It goes down smoothly, dangerously so considering it is just a touch under 10%. This is tasty stuff, but maybe lacking a little bit of complexity that I was hoping for.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
66cl Bottle from De Bierkoning. Aged specimen. Hazy golden orange colour, creamy white head. Aroma of sweet malts, cookie dough, warm apple sauce, spicy yeast, some citrus, alcohol. Flavour is medium sweet, malty, apple sauce, yeast, light spicy, citrus, alcohol, fruity, bitter finish. Full bodied. Classic tripel imho, well done. Not overly sweet like so many American attempts to classic Belgian styles.

Flska från SB ca 1,5 år gammal. Skummar rejält ur flaskan. När kolsyran väl lagt sig känns den nästan lite platt. Bärnstensfärgad och klar förutom lite bottensats. Inte riktigt en stiltypisk trippel men iaf i samma härad. Inte så humlad men kanske lite mer åt en stark blond. Tydliga belgodrag med kryddig jäst, fruktestrar, honung, torkad frukt. Farlig lättdrucken och väl dold alkohol, bra balans, riktigt gott.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Very impressive American take on the Belgian style Abbey Trippel. It is a beer with the most wonderful texture which is a brilliant ode to it’s Belgian brother but with some fruity and fresh American hops to make it unique.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap at the brewery. Large tulip glass. Attractive looking beer with orange and copper emphasis. Full finger head with quick dissipation. Funky aroma with Belgian yeast taking over. Some banana and coriander/spices. Taste is also funky with an almost sour feeling. Good spice and effervescence. There is also fruit and yeast presence. Drinkable and good but it falls short of the Belgian greats. Even falls short of better American tripels.

4.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
This beer is bought in may 2014 and has matured in my beercellar for a year.
Nice orange colored beer with a small, creamy, beige-white head. The beer is a little bit hazy. I really like that color!
Nose: Belgian yeast, fruit, pear, apple, hay, honey, spices and marzipan.
Taste: Wow! Very much sweet fruit, honey, caramel malt, banana, grass, bread, belgian yeast and citrus.
Body: Full body with medium carbonation. A complex body with a rich structure. Chewy beer! It is sweet and sour in a fantastic combination!
I didn’t try this when it was fresh but I can’t belive it could be any better than this. One year in the beercellar has matured the beer to almost perfection!
