I ran into this beer everywhere in Amsterdam. It is very much a standard in "Belgian Blond" flavor.

Bottle (from Tesco). Better than the Dubbel although it has the same cheap tinny malt and grainyness. Strangely enough its more noticeable here, as its not masked by masses of toffee, but is less offputting in this beer. Other than the fairly poor malts there is some fruity fermentation flavours and a mild sweetness which lead into a reasonably drinkable finish with just a touch of bitterness.

Sampled on Flashy’s tour of Brugge in June 2007 - Quite nice. Fruity and sweet and got a bit of that Leffe bubblegum taste, but a bit more watery and paler in colour than the great one.

Once a top 10 beer, now just another beer from Belgium, but I still really like it. Notes of fruits, yeast, caramel and easy drinkabilty. A ladybeer!

Nose was notably buttery and sweet and some sort of chalky inkyness that put me off a bit. Taste was similar lacking the inkyness but something is getting in the way perhaps the yeast is creating a fruit character i dont like.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
See through golden body with a small white head and some good lacing down the sides. Aroma of grains, some honey, bananas, cloves and just a hint of apples. Yeasty taste with some bananas, cloves, a bit of apples, and just a touch of malts. Feels full in the mouth yet lively at the same time. I really enjoyed this one.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draft. Clear golden color. Head was thick and white with good retention and lacing. Aroma was of clove and various fruits, most notably melon and pear. Slightly sweet with clove, fruit, and spicy floral hop flavors. Very good.

Slight musky but spicy aroma. Golden colour with a decent white head. Smooth but pleasant rich flavour. Subtle hints of spice. Fruity after notes. Nice beer.

2.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pour was a disappointing clear gold with no head. Slight aroma of yeast but not much else. Taste was of yeast and some fruit. Medium carbonation in a style that should be heavy. All in all a medium to poor tripel.

much lighter yeasty flavor than many tripels ive had. a little banana and clove flavor but what i noticed more than anything was a very strong honey flavor, which i enjoyed. a nice change of pace from the other belgians.
