WYGLĄD: Barwa złota, klarowne. Piana drobna, wysoka, trwała.
AROMAT: Średnio intensywny. Fenole (goździk, przyprawy) oraz estry (morela). W tle słody.
SMAK: Przyprawowość wymieszana z potężną dawką alkoholu. Goryczka niska, krótka.
OGÓLNIE: Być może leżakowane straciłoby ostrość alkoholową i zyskało zarówno w smaku, jak i aromacie.

DuffMan (9201) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - OCT 16, 2015
Bottle, shared with my wife and Sandra M. Hazy medium gold with a large white head that collapses into a creamy mattress. Lovely spicy aroma and flavour with ripe banana fruit. It has the sweetness and the strength of a tripel, but it is creamy and smooth with massive yeast character. For a style that is among my least favourite, I really enjoyed this beer. Fantastic.

Bottle at home, served at room temperature in a Westmalle glass. Typical yeasty, autumn leaf Belgian aroma. Spicy with warming alcohol A little herbal/medicinal, hint of overripe banana.

tricksta_p (3252) - Steenwijk, NETHERLANDS - SEP 28, 2015
Bottle at home. Aroma of ripe fruits, yeast, sweet malt, spicy notes, alcohol. Flavour is sweet with just a slight hint of bitterness. Body is disappointingly medium considering the ABV. A very sweet alcoholic Tripel, not undrinkable but not my kind of beer either.

Flaska@Pressklubben. Örtig och jäsig doft. Inleder ganska sött i smaken men övergĺr sedan till ett hyfsat örtigt och torrt avslut.

drmet (758) - Mecklenburg-Vorpommern, GERMANY - AUG 29, 2015
-Upfront very earthy,musty w a lightly bitter floral hop note -sweet honey note -well carbonated -alcohol fairly balanced for an 11%er,though theres a warming in the throat -very spicy pepper,alcohol and very dry finish pretty decent Tripel,but cant hold a candle to the top guys (Chimay,Westmalle,La Trappe)
