3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle, bought @ Willems, Grobbendonk. [my 50th Tripel rating]
Pours a clear orangey yellow golden with a medium creamy white head that relatively quickly ends up as a thin film. Aroma is powerful, relatively cloying sweet with lots of fruit, yeast, honey, herbs and citrus. Nice, oily mouthfeel. Flavour is powerful with a good dose of lemongrass to begin with, yeast and a general viniousness. Aftertaste is sweetish with a herbal bitterness. Special, but not bad.
