2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
(bottle, 33cl) Hazy, golden colour with a big and off-white frothy head. Yeasty, slightly vinous, if not vinegary fruity aroma with shades of bread and cara-malt. Moderately sweet and slightly sour flavour, medium bodied with a lively carbonation. Delicately bready (cara-)malty taste with hints of citrus and shades of herbal hops; slightly sweet and sour-fruity finish. Rather disappointing. 19.XI.13

Had a 33cl bottle at beercafe Naovenant. Orange coloured beer, tastes like a box of raisins. Not my cup of tripel.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
33 cl. bottle @ home. Procured from Willems. BBF 06/02/2015. Hazy darker orange, touch amber, fading white head. Strangely sweetish smell, touch plastic, chemicals, candy sugar, hint rotting strawberries, plastic caramel malts. Bitter plastic, cheap honey, liquorish, bitter spices, touch Indian spices taste, very sweet, more cheap honey, touch fermenting strawberry, oily, nuts, some vegetables. Body is bit pricklish. Almost like a very bad mead overall. It is not bad but a bit far from my preferred flavour profile. I liked the Bruin but this one is not my thing even if objectively not too bad.

Tap at the Leuven Festival. Cloudy orange-gold color with a tall head. Malty, bready nose with some lemon. Sweet and fruity flavor, honey malts, biscuits, light hops. The kind of tripel I donít like.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Hazy golden colour, white head. Aroma of tobacco, light sweet, vegetables, beech wood and some weird skunk I canít quite describe properly. Sweet flavour, light sour, fruits, strange fruits, quite weird. Finish vegetables and skunk. Not my cup of tea, if this is supposed to be a tripel something is quite off. Is it old? Has it been in the sun? And whatís with the name, I thought this "double o" thing was a trademark from Belgoo beer, was expecting this one to be from the same brewery.
(From 33cL bottle @ Oirschot tasting. Thanks for sharing, Benzai)

75cl bottle @ home, from B&S Drinks Wilsele; pours hazy orange-golden with (almost) no head; low carbo; a bit herbal smell, taste is malty, some herbs, watery. Quite boring in my opinion.

Bottle shared with Dutchdrebus, Joes and Ansjelaah. Hazy orangy color, small white head. Smell malts, herbs or spices, surprisingly some wood. Taste lightly malts, again lightly wood, pretty sweet and some hints of overripe fruits. Medium body and carbonation. Weird but not unpleasant to drink. Interesting tripel.
