4.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Up front: I’m biased towards tripels. Hands down my favorite style of ale. This beer displayed an exceptionally smooth taste with hints of fruit. The flavor was not overpowering and in general, this beer came off as a solid choice for those of you who enjoy the taste of ALE rather than the accents involved in any given ale.

Deep golden colour with large white head that quickly settles. Aromas bubblegum, banana, honey, grains, coriander. Taste is sweet - banana bread, honeycomb, multigrain bread, spices. Medium bodied, oily mouthfeel. Very enjoyable.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
330 ml bottle. Dark canary yellow, quite clear, with a tiny, non persistent bright white head. Very pungent and sharp nose, some light booze notes, fruit esters, brown sugar, white bread, yeast, grapes and candied apples. Very dry and zingy, fruity, moderately malty, slightly spicy and dusty. The alchool is extremely well hidden, but it’s not exactly easy to drink due to extreme fizziness. Lively carbonation, medium body, slightly oily texture. Not my favourite tripel, but clearly a solid beer.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Matige trippel, wel puur en zuiver qua smaak, maar wel weinig smaak en diepgang. Ook bij het iets warmer drinken van het bier nog steeds niet een uitgesproken smaak.

A very good Tripel, actually one of the best tripels in my opinion. Not too much alcohol taste.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Tripel with cream white, mousse-like head and warm orange blonde colour. Sweet, honeyish, even a bit sugary, some peppery notes and finishing with lightly astringent alcohol. Underachieving if compared with Westmalle Tripel or Chimay Triple, and even if compared with its own past, because this used to be a lot more elegand and refined when it was still brewed by the monks without interference from Bavaria.

Nice but not outstanding. Amber, hazy beer with nice white head. Quite good aroma of banana, bubblegum and spices. Alcohol nicely hidden. Drinkable abbey tripel.
