75cl bottle @ The Beer Wall, Bruges. Pours dark hazy orange/golden. Sweet malty nose, als coriander. Caramel & other sweet malt aroma’s, a touch yeasty. Overall decent tripel, but lacks some bitterness and originality.

Maenhout’s first, tasted when it first came onto the market. Loose, cream white head, misty peach blonde colour with slightly brownish hue. Aroma starts off nicely with apple, coriander, orange peel, and then it makes a turn for the worse with my friends H2S (rotten egg), DMS (cooked cabbage) and sweat... Fruity taste, malt sweetness, slick and elegant with grassy hops but then there’s the retronasal DMS ruining it. I must have had a bad bottle and I suspect this has much improved meanwhile, viewing the other ratings here and viewing the quality of their current beers. Time to give it a second chance.

Een lekkere tripel zoals een tripel hoort te zijn, drinkt vlot weg. Tripel--liefhebbers gaan niet teleurgesteld zijn

75cl bottle shared with Dutchdrebus, Martinus and Joes. Slightly unclear orange color, small to medium sized white head. Smell malts, a bit sweet, a bit flowery. Taste malts, sweetness, again blossom and flowers with a sweet-bitter finish. Medium body and carbonation. Not bad at all.

75 cl bottle @ Gastropub Tuulensuu. Rated on 14.08.2010
Aroma has citrus, orange peel and distant floral notes. Flavour is rather strong on citrus. Also some orange, floral notes and a slight acidic feeling. Good tripel!
