Had this under the label Bink Tripel. The nose is excellent. On opening the bottle, I thought, here comes a top of the line Abbey Tripel, the pour showed very little head, but the body was cloudy, which can mean character. Alas and alack, the taste was a let down for me. Very nowhere. I finished it, but there was no flavor, no head, only the nose.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sampled at an esbls . I brought it. A light tea colored beer that has no head. A sweet fruity caramel nose. The flavor is not as nice as the nose. Cooked brown sugar, complex fruit, and alcohol. Very sweet. Kind of disappointing.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: SEP 19, 2012 75cl bottle. Yellow/golden clear and slightly hazy liquid. Small to medium white head. Nose : tart, honey and flower aromas. Fruity notes. Sip : Low carbonation and low to medium density liquid. Medium sweet that develops little sour and medium bitter end. Tart taste along the way. Overall : nothing special unless you like tart taste about it. It has more hops then a regular tart lovers beer but not enough to be a refreshment. The alcohol is well hidden so be careful. Extra points for creamy texture and woody aftertaste.

Bottle at home. Clear golden pour, huge white head. Aroma is fruity, spicy and malty with a hint of alcohol. Flavor is spicy fruits, a bit chemical and quite harsh, but also quite interesting. Nice brew.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at Moeder Lambic Fontainas, Bruxelles.
Cloudy golden one with a delicious foamy white head. Fruity aroma with peach and honey, fine cereals, flowers and the bees, caramel. The flowers come again in the flawor, acacia-honey and grains, green leaves because of hops. The light bitterness gets more power in the aftertaste. Really interesting...
