3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
A very mildly hazy orange body with a white head that settles down to a thin, uneven layer. Nose has aromas of yeast, spices and caramel. Taste is quite sweet with a long, fairly strong bitter finish. Carbonation feels smooth and the mouthfeel is quite rich. Nice beer with very pleasant, although mild aroma and well hidden alcohol. The harshness in the taste is a little annoying.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Review based on the BJCP2008 guidelines (style 18C). Bottle 33 cl - Batch L4072 2357. AROMA: strong alcohol presence with a soft and spicy aroma. vinous like aroma. no hop notes. very faint citric esters. APPEARANCE: dark gold color, almost orange. a bit hazy. average ivory head with medium-low retention. some lacing. TASTE: some spicy and sweet background profile. full alcohol presence with a vinous aspect. medium-low bitterness with a semi-dry finish. no hop flavours. faint esters reminiscent of oranges. PALATE: medium-light body. medium carbonation. no solventy character. OVERALL: a tripel that lacks a bit of aroma and flavour complexity. a bit strong on the alcohol aromas.

UPDATED: DEC 2, 2014 750ml bottle poured in a Leffe chalice.
A: Pours a dark orange almost Amber colour with a big white and foamy head. Good retention and many lacings left
S: Sweet, fruity and spice. Honey, caramel malts and belgian yeasts. Quite strong on alcohol in the end
T: Caramel malts and Belgian yeasts are a must. Quite fruity too. Some honey. Balanced sweet-bitterness. Remarkable on personality. Once again, quite liquorous end
M: Heavy, creamy and a bit molasses body. Medium to low carbonation
O: Very decent Triple from a respectable brewery

"very solid tripel. bready, balanced aroma. a little citrus, fruity malt and yeast. solid feel, not overdone on the carbonation. almost soft, but full. one of the better tripels out there."
