3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
330ml bottle poured into a chalice glass. Early 2010 release.
A surprisingly muddy deep amber colour. The head retention and lacing are impressive, though.
The aroma is not that intense, possibly due to the age of the bottle. Still, I’m able to get some nice fruitiness, with apple and pear notes, as well as a bready yeastiness and some caramel.
This is not your typical tripel! More on the fruity and malty side of things, with almost a candied apple kind of taste to it, with some hop bitterness at the back. A little peppery and moderately sweet. Closer to reaching the bottom of the glass, I started to get a more white wine kind of texture to the beer.
Medium-bodied. The alcohol can be felt, both in the body and on the palate. However, overall the mouthfeel is quite balanced, with just enough of everything: sweetness, bitterness, spiciness...
Drinks well, though not as smoothly as, say, Chimay White or other Trappist tripels.
Overall, this was quite different from your typical quality tripel, but I still liked it.

Bottle 33 cl. Hazy yellow gold with smooth creamy white lacing head. Notes of banana, citrus, belgium yeast, grass. Very smooth creamy easy drinkable taste. There is about no alcohol taste in this one, very well hidden, which makes it somewhat dangerous drink lol. Goes down extremely easy.
