1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
Dorée claire, effervescence moyenne-forte, col blanc assez abondant et persistant. Odeur bizarre, genre égout, idem pour la première impression au goût. Pour le reste: mauvais vin blanc (astringence comprise), miel, bananes et petite amertume. Bofeuark!

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours misty yellow to amber wit huge soapy beige top, light lasing. On nose it comes dominant fruity-yeasty with sweetener like honey in background, malt and hops presence is weak to medium. Taste is sweet with elegant medium bitter at the end. Bubbly lively carbonated and refreshing it was to me, finish is mild to medium dry. To me it seems not tripel, just OK Belgian strong ale.

Malty and quite yeasty, bread, bit honey, spices, some hops, bit fruity. Sweet with moderate bitter finish.
Hmm.. normally I would read my description and would want to buy this, thou overall I am not very excited.. Maybe I can blame poor balance, maybe bit watery.. Emm.. anyways.. drinkable brew, quite OK

5/III/13 - 33cl bottle from De Hopduvel (Gent) @ home - BB: 9/I/14 (2013-215)
Clear blond to light orange beer, big fizzy dense head, crackling (sound), falling down quickly, little adhesive. Aroma: pretty sweet, ripe banana, orange blossom, bit yeasty, sugary. MF: a bit too much carbon, medium body. Taste: sweet, sugary start, some dairy, defined yeasty character, some banana, bit spicy. Aftertaste: yeast, more banana, sweet and sugary, little bitter but not much, bit sourish, might be the carbon, pretty chemical ending, alcohol noticeable, warming the throat. You can do better than this, Van Steenberge!

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle courtesy of Deanso. Poured a cloudy amber with a thin white head. The aroma is a little bitter. The flavour is medium bitter with a strange medicinal aftertaste. Not one of my favourites.

3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Classic-looking tripel from 12oz into Duvel glass. Light gold with a sturdy white head. Really pleasant aroma of light grain and smooth funk. Really smooth on palate and harmonized flavor. Especially like this one since I live 5 minutes from the Keizersberg abbey and it’s beautiful to walk the grounds in the fall!
