pintbypint (2648) - Edmonton, Alberta, - DEC 26, 2010
330ml brown bottle. Dark gold colour, fairly clear. Nice foamy white head, good retention and excellent lacing. Fruity aroma, some alcohol. Flavour has a fruity start with notes of apple and citrus. Some bready malt, honey, yeast spiciness and light alcohol. Nice dry, clean finish. Medium bodied. Tight beaded carbonation. A fine tripel.

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.

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 [ BA Review @ 11/14/2011 ]

Joostvdveen (18) - NETHERLANDS - SEP 27, 2014
lichte geur beetje caramel, weinig co2, beetje vlakke smaak, alcohol iets meer dan normale tripels. beetje een grondsmaak, niet heel uitgesproken. lichte smaak rustige nasmaak.

MaBeer1972 (1342) - Taunton, Massachusetts, USA - SEP 26, 2014
Bottle from Julio’s. Poured into a snifter. A clear deep honey color with a frothy off-white head that settles to a thick lace. Aroma of honey, spice with some alcohol. Complex flavor. sweet apricot, honey, spice. Dry bitterness. Good yeast profile. Very dinkable. Nice stuff.
