Wow what a beer! Very complicated and ridiculously smooth for an 11% triple. Very floral, hints of caramel, and and a very smooth finish. It’s not overwhelming and just all around smooth. Great beer.

750 ML Previous descriptions are accurate, cloudy golden with a thick lacey white head, fruit & citrus aroma & taste. Very carbonated. I wasn’t thinking tripel blonde when I bought it, I generally like the darker ales, but for a hot summer day, this is very refreshing and I have no complaints whatsoever.

330ml bottle. Aroma is fruty and a lot of yeast, slightly apple. Appearance is noce golden with a finger thick white head. Taste is slightly bitter, little sweet. Great mouthfeel with light carbonation and a very long finish. Overall a strong and quaffable Belgian Tripple. Really enjoyed it.

One of the best tripels out there... slightly sweet even with the generous hops and spicy yeast character

BB-09/05:Deep copper,oarnge,liquid with a beakutiful,bone-white,creamy head. The smallest of bubbles create the best of lacework.Appearance would be a six,if possible. Strong aromas of grassy hops,sweet-pale malts,musty yeast. As it warms the hops take over,then the musty yeast dominates. Soft but terribly,thick mouthfeel.Flavors of sweet malt,honey,toast, are all over the tounge while the grassiness of the hops dominate the sides of the mouth. Alcohol is totally hidden and flavor only get’s better.First the grassiness takes over,then the mustiness takes over.Damn good Belgian.

When I found out you could buy this beer at just about every grocery store in the Netherlands, my mind was almost blown. Not the absolute best triple, but a very good one. Notes of clove and banana, lots of alcohol, and some nice sweetness.

Solid tripel. Strong sweet fruit notes, which perhaps overwhelm the Belgian yeast just a bit. Nevertheless quite good. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Holmen2 (781) - NORWAY - JUL 9, 2014
Hazy golden. Impressivly dense and persistent white head and lacing. Aroma of banana, coriander, tropical fruits and marmelade. Similar taste, balanced with moderate bitterness. Aftertaste of unripe bananas with a bitter hint. Superbly drinkable considering its high ABV.
