4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours hazy dark straw with big fizzy white head. Aroma of Brett, fruit, Swiss cheese, hopcit, lively yeast esters, sweaty female body parts including feet and taint. Tastes hopcity, with a firm, dense, Bretty mouthfeel. The finish is citrusy and spicy, with more fruit and hops. Great complexity. I’d drink this any day of the week and twice on Sunday (and 15 times on Saturday).

bottle from brickskeller (labelled as konigshoeven now). darker than most tripels: leans to deep amber, slight head. aroma is mostly malt, some alcohol. quite full-bodied and sweet, but finishes pretty clean. fruit is present but subdued.

3.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Hazzy Orange and subtle head. Semi Fizzilla stomping through Tokyo. Was expecting more explosions from model tanks, being a tripel. This must have been the toilet break part of the movie because it didnt move me much more than teh dubbel. Well a little. Again sweet and more on a citrus tip than the dark fruit tip. Some light fruits like apple and banana tossed in. The balance is presented well but I still wanted more of an alchohol ting without the obvious. I’ll stick with the Quad and Blonde, though I prefer brunetts.

Bright hazy orange with large white head. Strong aroma resembling chardonnay at first, yeast, vanilla. Medium-full body, sweet like cake frosting, hints of citrus, apples, and yeast, dry finish. Well balanced overall, alcohol well hidden. A very tasty and solid tripel.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours an attractive hazy amber color with a thin offwhite head that leaves decent lacing on the glass. Aroma of doughy yeast with very mild citrus and spices. The doughy yeast is also present in the flavor, it’s accompanied by tart citrus, mild sweet finish, there’s a lingering bittersweet feeling that remains in the mouth for a while and it’s kind of unpleasant. Full body, oily texture, soft to medium carbonation. Decent but not woth of buying another bottle, like their Blond and Dubbel.
