A slightly cloudy, somewhat orange-yellow colored beer with a fluffy layer of foam. The aroma, which comes from the yeast, resembles the smell of champagne or white wine. A nice, bitter taste with some alcohol in it, and the slightly bitter aftertaste doesn’t hold to long. Een lichtjes troebel, half oranje, half geel bier met een schuimige kraag. Het aroma van de gist lijkt op dat van champagne of witte wijn. Een lekkere bittere smaak waar ook de alcohol goed in vertegenwoordigd is. De iets bittere nasmaak blijft niet te lang hangen.

ryanscourt (745) - Latrobe, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 23, 2014
Cloudy yellow. Doughy flavor and taste. Not really fits my traditional tripel expectations of spicy and zippy flavors. None better than victory golden monkey in my book (will see later if If one actually becomes higher)

adster (345) - HUNGARY - JUN 22, 2014
Rendkívül élénken, pezsgő módjára érkezett meg a pohárba sistergő habot csiholva, mely viszonylag hamar búcsút is intett. Élesztős, gabonás illata van némi fanyarsággal és alkoholos jelleggel, mely ízében is igen erőteljesen megnyilvánul: a megszokott alapjegyekre rányomja bélyegét az alkoholos test, mely idővel szépen kisimul, ám mindvégig megadja ellentmondást nem tűrő, markáns karakterét a sörnek.

GuideDogSaint (303) - Epsom, Surrey, ENGLAND - JUN 21, 2014
Bottle from Charter Mall, Chongqing Lu, Changchun, China. Pours golden with minimal head. Typical Belgian tripel, bitter aftertaste. For 11% alcohol is not noticeable. Very nice.

hohops (284) - Kent, ENGLAND - JUN 20, 2014
Appearance- clear golden, plenty of carbonation, one finger pure white head. Aroma- spicy, yeast, sweet banana, fruits, malty undertones. Taste- full mouthfeel, big sweetness, sugary fruits, caramel, banana, a bit creamy and syrupy, malty finish, bread and yeast. Alcohol quite well hidden, although you get some at the end. Good, a bit on the sweet side.

Poured into a tulip from a 2 year old 330ml bottle. Aroma of a bit of fruit and spice as well as alcohol. Pours a darker golden with a nice thick head, not much lacing. Taste is fruit and a lot of alcohol. Aftertaste gives bitterness then sweetness. Good mouthfeel but a Tad too much alcohol for this beer in my opinion. Overall, decent beer but being that I?m not in a major city in America and it?s 4 dollars bottle, probably not a repeat for me.

Couleur jaune trouble, petite mousse blanche. Bon nez fruité (banane) et levure, un peu acide. Gout fruité, blé, note de coriandre avec fin levure amčre,

Bottle. Classic of the style, all the way around. Fuzzy golden, pineapple color, with a firm and thick white foam head. The aroma is restrained, but true to style ... vague tropical fruit and yeast. This drinks with a superbly easy balance, with perhaps the only "fault" a bit of a tilt to an earthen bit of loam in the finish. But this remains IMHO a classic. (#5548, 6/11/2014)
