3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Crystal clear, light golden ale. Very large, everlasting, rocky head. Crazy lacing.
Nose of coriander, orange peel and yeast.
Well-balanced with flavors of candy sugar, bitter hops and alcohol.
Full-bodied with a syrupy mouthfeel and fizzy carbonation. Medium-length, bitter, astringent finish.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Beautiful gold colour. Large initial head and lasting white foam and lacing. Initial strong aroma of candy, followed by lasting yeast. Humble sweetness and hop mixture. Light but long lasting alcohol/hop aftertaste. A classy smooth beer deserving of a higher rating.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Spicy yeast aroma with alcohol. Pours golden yellow, clear (which I didn't expect), head is foamy and white, lacing is good. Belgian spiciness in the flavour. Alcohol and smooth sweetness in the finish. Not really complex but quite drinkable none the less.

Bottled. Nice solid average tripel. Tasted what it should be. Not sweet enough for me. Very drinkable however.

I sampled this beer a few months ago after drinking numerous other beers. I thought I'd give my taste buds a rest beofre sampling the Trippel again. After a second try I believe my rating would have been identical. Average Belgian alcohol aroma, adequate golden color, nice lacing head, and yeasty flavor.

Dark blonde beer with a long lasting frothy head, and an intense alcoholic nose. A refreshing strongly bitter fruit flavour. A good Belgian triple.

Sweet. Very sweet. As it warms more flavors begin to surface. I do taste the grapefruit here. No bubblegum though.
