Sour yeasty slightly grassy noise. Lots of carbonation somewhat hazy and light in color. Dense lacing. Sour taste with a bitter finish. Heavy on alcohol. Delightful mouth feel with a medium body.

Nice light yellow gold color. Poured in original Kastell glass doesn't give much foam and it dissipates quickly anyway. Smells malt, sweetness and alcohol (it's an 11%). The taste is quite sweet for trippel and quite Belgian anyway, so I wouldn't call it my favorite. Overall a sweet Belgian trippel, but nothing making it special.

This beer stood in my storage for a long time. By the time I drank it, it was 7 months over date. I tried it expectiong nothing, and this idea appeared to be confirmed when I opened it. A bread-yeast aroma came out, which I have never smelled before while opening a beer. So I thought this was the end of the exercise. Also the head disappeared fast. But when I tasted it, it was an utter surprise to me. The taste went from fruity to clearly acid-bitter. Wow, what a surprise. The body of this beer was very un-blond, and more orange hazy.

Alcohol was masked terribly. Unfortunately the flavor was masked fairly well. This is a bland over priced import. The bottle was beautiful, but the taste left much to be desired.

One of best tripel i ever drunk... Classic tripel color, aoma and taste are sweet and fruity (Peach...) , the body is smooth, and the carbonation is soft, one very good after dinner beer!

Nice fruity and well balanced tripel. The impressive amount of alcohol was efficiently masked by the typical Belgium palate. Great golden colour with little haze and long lasting body. Leaves very pleasent bittersweet peachy aftertaste which gets stronger when the beer gets warmer. Don’t forget to serve it @ ~9 C. Well done one.

Hazy Gold with a nice top, a bit creamy. Alcohol dominates a bit too much; I understand that it is because of the high alcohol % but why have such a high level if it only dominates other aromas? Finish is rather short if not for the alcohol. Bitterness is OK

Large Liter Bottle: Pours a cloudy yellow-orange with a very thin head that dissipates quickly. Sugars and citrus fruits dominate the nose. Initial impression is of sweet apricots with a smooth bourbon-like hint of that 11% ABV. It finishes slightly sweet with a semi-dry honey aftertaste. This was a very good beer. In my excitement, I poured in some of the sediment as I finished off the bottle. This will become one of my go-to beers for a cold winter’s night after a good day of skiing!

Appearance is nice, the head is soft, but thick with a lacing. Smell is slightly metalic, but also sweet burnt sugar with underlying malts. Taste is sweet, malty and has flavors of faint burnt sugar, and cloves. Mouthfeel is velvet and smooth, very good. I like this beer, it’s definetly not a session beer, but I enjoyed it very much.
