330ml Bottle. It pours a cloudy orange amby body that has lots of large sediment with a white head that lasts a short time and then vanishes to leave moderate lacing. However (and this is a 1st for me) the carbonation of the beer then thickens the lacing into the head again. Its aroma is orange, malts and coriander. Its taste is fairly unremarkable, Sweet fruits and zestiness with a sweet bitter finish and the traditional Belgian smokiness. Id say this beers is on the better side of average but still none-the-less average.

Unlike the Leffe Blonde Ale we all know this beer is unpasteurized so that it’s more turbid, more artisanal-like and so the double expensive too. Its foam is huge and massive, really beautiful. Strong aroma of coriander, cinnamon and grassy noble hops on the solid basis of sweet caramel. And that’s the matter, too sweet. A tripel shouldn’t be that sweet! Chimay, St. Bernardus, La Chouffe, Tripel Karmeliet... didn’t they teach you how much attenuate a tripel? Use a proper mash temperature (low temperature) and a proper yeast, holy hell!

Golden colour beer with a white head, medium carbonation. Taste is fruity, spicy and bitter. Not bad but there are mutch better tripels out there.

This is probably my first Tripel, but I like it. Pours a hazy gold with a minimal head. Aroma of banana, yeast and hint of honey. Taste is of banana and spices. Boozy finish.

Lovely tripel. I’ve had the Blonde and Brune a lot but finally tried this. Similar to the Blonde but a little more so. Shared bottle at Plonk.

Veel te weinig smaak aan voor een goede tripel te zijn. Meer gemaakt zodat iedereen het lekker vind, ook diegene die niet graag tripel drinken.

Bottle. Orange colour, decent white head. Flowery, yeasty aroma with some citrus and coriander. Sweet malty flavour, floral, citrus notes. Really nothing special.

Gylden brun tåkete med offwhite skum. Humle, gjær og blomsterlukt. Bittersøt smak av blomster, humle, frukt og noe gjær. Litt syrlig. Bitterheten sitter godt.
