Subtiel, prettig aroma. Goud van kleur en erg troebel, met wat bezinksel. Tintelend. Begint fris en lichtzoet in de mond, wat na enkele seconden plaatsmaakt voor een prettige bittere smaak.

An awesome beer. Extremely smooth, with nice sweet and bitter tastenotes. It’ll leave you wanting more.

Mooi troebel bier. Ruikt goed. Smaakt ook als een prima tripel, maar is wat waterig.

77ships (6479) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - JAN 6, 2016
330 ml. bottle sampled @ home. BBF 31/08/2017. Purchased @ Delhaize. I have putting off doing this one forever, about six years I figure. Hazy sparkling golden, moldy off-white looking head. Massive chemical sweetness as far as the smell goes, chemical honey, cleaning products,… Intense in a bad way. Taste is sparkling overly sweet fish guts, esters, industrial honey, chemical, empty, cleaning products,… Clearly industrial fare, everything I don’t like about mainstream Belgian blond beers industrial in a fizzy unpleasant fashion. I might have enjoyed this to some extent six years, I remember liking the blond way back (haven’t had it in years) but I have grown to disliked beers like this, the empty, excessive industrial nature of this doesn’t help. Really not my thing. I cannot believe that tderoeck rated this 3.7/5.

Bottle. Hazy golden colour, lively head which dissipates slowly. Sweet initially with a lasting bitter taste. Alcohol not overpowering. Reasonable.

DraftDodger (720) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - DEC 12, 2015
Amsterdam 12/12 2015. 33 cl bottle at Der Melkweg. Superbly overpriced. Pours slightly hazy golden yellow with white head. Settles as 0,5 cm thick layer of foam. Aroma of yeast, citrus, honey with a touch of sourness. Medium carbonation and slightly oily palate. Taste is yeasty with sweet notes of banana, citrus grass and something a little bit smoked. Sourish and lightly bitter aftertaste. Nice if slightly generic triple.

Batavi (264) - Waalwijk, NETHERLANDS - DEC 6, 2015
Uitgeschonken in 25 cl. Leffe bokaal. Troebel oranjeachtig bier met een volle witte schuimkraag die zich wel weer terugtrekt, schuim blijft plakken aan de binnenkant van het glas. Het aroma is zoet en kruidig met tonen van: banaan, koriander, kruidnagel, sinaasappelschil, en Belgische gist. Typische kruidige tripel smaak, met zoete tonen van banaan en karamel. Verder de kruidige smaken van koriander, kruidnagel, vanille, sinaasappelschil en een licht peperige, verwarmende afdronk. De Tripel is een van de beste bieren van Leffe, mooie balans tussen sterk kruidig, zoet en lichte hopbitterheid. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Een zeer zware tripel, goede schuimkraag, zeer traag te drinken om van te kunnen genieten.

sjogro (1572) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - DEC 2, 2015
Orange of color, very much banana/kruidnagel sweet and yeasty. Prefer it over the blonde, but apparently not my bag, baby. Backlog from 2014/08/29.
