2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
20 Oct 2012: beautiful sunny day in the Dutch tourist town of Valkenburg. We sat on some random bar terrace and the beer menu had this on it.
33cl Bottle, best before the end of July 2013: poured into a Grimbergen chalice.
Good clean golden looks: full white crown at first, soon a wisp and collar.
Floral hop nose with mild fruit hints and some yeast esters.
The taste is an OK blend of those floral hops and some hidden malt semi-sweetness. The alcohol and yeast also play a part in ensuring this is one of brand Grimbergen’s better beers.
Body depth isn’t too deep, but it does fine if you consider this as a light bodied Triple. Just above Mr Average.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle. Golden body, small head. Aroma has lemon detergents. Sweet soapy taste with lousy hops. Fizzy mouthfeel. Very industrial and lifeless. I think I am going to burp soap bubbles afterwards.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Helder donkergeel bier met schuim. Smaak is krachtig, licht zoet, eigenlijk niet als een triple met sporen van vanille. Etiket is inmiddels iets gewijzigd (lichter van kleur). Gewoon goed, smaak blijft redelijk lang hangen.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
clear golden triple. Small white head and moderate carbonation. Body is slightly thin. Flavor is mostly sweet malts and yeast with some spicy fruityness added. Alcohol is clearly present but does not make it boozy. Not a remarkable triple but well done and eady to drink.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Rather simple beer, but not a bad beer. It has a smal white foam layer, which disappears quickly. The taste is not bad. It has a bitternes, which is equalized by a evenly large sweetness. It has a medium long end, not bad. The colour is golden and the beer is clear and has a little sparkle.

Excellente bière d'abbaye triple. Pour une bière non trappiste elle est excellente. Je vous la recommande.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle as a gift at home. The beer is golden/blonde colored with a nice large white head, CO2 is also perfect. The aroma is fruity with tones of oranges and citrus, with also spicy tones of coriander. The taste is light bittersweet with fruity notes which reminds me of apricots. The aftertaste is pleasant warming and dry.
