4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle (courtesy of Presario): Poured an hazy blonde color ale with a super huge foamy white head with perfect retention. Aroma of funky yeast and coriander with some floral hops. Taste is sweet with some nice farmhouse feel to it, mix of coriander and wheat is well done. Alcohol is extremely well hidden (I thought I was drinking a 6% beer) and body is just above average. Truly a wonderful triple just the way I love them.

Bottle. I thought that this was a tad bland. Nothing wrong with it, just not enough to set it apart from other similar beers

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
From a 330 ml bottle. Light gold with some haze. The aroma is herbal with some flowers and tart cherries. There is also some earthy undertones of moss. The taste has some hay and dry champagne. There is also a little bit of apples and some light notes of herbs. This is a refreshing and dry version of a tripel. Nicely done.

Yes, great head and typical Belgian aroma. And I agree that there are lots of incredibly subtle things going on in there. Personally I don’t really like the overwhelming alcohol flavour. Sorry.
