Pours blonde with a quick white head; nose is fruity with a touch of booze but not particularly deep. Flavor is also disappointing in its simplicity and reliance on alcohol for flavor; this is too high for tripel, and simply too boring. Overall it’s a decent brew, but I expect a lot more for a legit belgian tripel and for the price tag.

Bill Becker (809) - Casper, Wyoming, USA - SEP 22, 2016
Bottled March 17th, 2013. Light gold with plenty of foam. Long lasting with lacing. Caramel malt with maple syrup like aroma. Tiny bit of what I suspect is oxidation. Fruity, with hints of tartness, more massive than any sweet notes that I expected to find. Quite different than the smell but good in its own right. 11% abv seems to be on the timid side. Decent mouthfeel though I reckon some carbonation was lost in the 3 and a half years. $2. On clearance. Worthy.

Belle robe dorée avec mousse peu persistante.Le nez nous offre une odeur très fraîche et douce avec des notes citronnées et herbacées.Une légère amertume se fait sentir en arrière bouche. Une tripel blonde bien équilibrée entre l’amertume, la douceur et l’alcool!

appiantiqua (48) - Lyon, FRANCE - SEP 21, 2016
Goûtée dans un verre neutre "tulipe". La robe est dorée avec une mousse de faible tenue. Le nez est plaisant avec de légères notes citronnées et d’abricot. Le goût apporte une bonne amertume toujours sur des fruits jaunes. L’arrière bouche est de longueur moyenne et maintient un bon équilibre. Une très bonne triple. 15.5/20

Good tripel. Nothing wrong with it. No special aroma, but good mouthfeel, palate and aftertaste. Little spicy.

ulrikolsen (338) - DENMARK - AUG 15, 2016
Bottle. Pours clear golden with beige head. Aroma is sweet and light malty with biscuit and light spicy. Taste is light malty with biscuit and light bread yet spicy with coriander and has a balanced sweet and spicy dry finish. Alcohol quite evident.

thirstyrabbit (1742) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - AUG 6, 2016
Bottle. Semi-clear golden body, medium to small head. Aroma has honey, biscuity malts and Belgian yeast. A bit thin mouthfeel. Taste has sweet malts, caramelly and biscuity. Hops are dry and herbal. Finish has notes of white wine sourness and the booze is pretty evident. Not a very smooth sipper. More yeast could give this beer a more fuller and perhaps smoother feeling.

UPDATED: JUL 29, 2016 A classic piece we got here. This is your classic "Strong Belgian beer", somewhat similar to Bush ambrée, alcohol level is damn good and aftertaste lasts for a while in mouth. If you?re looking for something enjoyable that delivers well on every aspect, this is the way to go. Especially great with dry sausage to eat along! APPROVED BY TAVERNY?S BLACK METAL CREW!

330ml bottle. Pours yellow gold with a large head. Aroma is sweet candy sugars and yeast. Taste is sweet with straw and candy sugars. Yeasty finish. Alcohol makes itself known.
