Picked this up in Sainburys? (I think) a while back and good to try after the Dubbel. Good solid golden colour with a huge white fluffy head, yeasty aroma. Tasted very good with nice fruit, yeastyness and a lovely warming effect from the alcohol as this started to warm up.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Golden orangish color with a thin white head. Grass, yeasts and lemon on the nose. Intense yeast flavor with a nice fruity aftertaste (lemon). Alcohol esthers warm up the mouth perfectly but alcohol is not noticed in any other aspect of the beer, and it has a lot (6.7%). Good blonde beer.

Wonderful yeast aroma. Strong frothy head. Appropriate golden color. Sweetness of malt flavor was delectable, but I got a bit of an astringent finish. May have been the age of the beer - imports can be tough sometimes with freshness.

I think it more a blond ale than a tripel, but it is absolutely drinkable. Not too fruity nose, but with som apple, plum , apricot and phelolics. Light body, medium CO2 for a belgian ale. Crystal clear without sediment. A shame!
