Tastes like a triple, drinks like a Pils, the advertisement said. I follow with regards to some aspects of the taste, but the palate lacks volume compared to a good triple.

CanCrusher (935) - Ilirska Bistrica, SLOVENIA - OCT 5, 2016
Bottle 0,33L. Dark golden color with large, creamy, white head and lively visible carbonation. Aroma is yeasty and earthy with some floral herbs in the background. Taste starts light acetic/acidic with lemon on tongue and gets slightly bitter at the end. Light to medium body, creamy texture, soft carbonation. Positive surprise.

Gehbe (259) - Vilnius, LITHUANIA - SEP 11, 2016
Pours clear gold with a big white head, no lacing. Refreshing brett-funky nose with notes of rosemary, red pepper, jasmine, herbs and many other floral and spicy notes. Taste is light sour-sweet-bitter - perfectly balances, somewhat on the dry side. Dryish palate, high carbonation, very refreshing. One of my summer favorites.

Geiserich (4139) - Linz, AUSTRIA - AUG 23, 2016
Bottle: Golden color, foamy white head. Aroma is fresh, yeasty, light hoppy. Flavor is sourly sweet, light hoppy and yeasty. Averange.

Shakesbeer (12) - Vienna, AUSTRIA - AUG 11, 2016
Hazy golden colour, nice head. Weak aroma of grass, hay, a little herbs. Taste is grassy, slightly hoppy with a little cardboard and a strong citric note. Weak body, watery. Nice carbonation that makes the beer seem refreshing, especially together with the dominant sour taste. Nothing interesting in this brew. No need to drink it again.

martin00sr (2783) - Haderslev, DENMARK - JUL 12, 2016
Bottle, slow but persistent gusher... Hazy golden, airy white head. Yeasty aroma, fruity with funky notes. Flavour is yeasty, citric. Some spice. A little watery.

SinH4 (3174) - Garching b. München, GERMANY - APR 24, 2016
Bottle. Hazy golden color with white head. Aroma is cookie dough, grassy, slight graininess like many other Session beers have. Taste is dough, yeasty, a bit estery. No booze. Session Tripel is a weird idea, and tbh, it’s quite the anti-tripel. But drinkable.

erickok (5451) - Leuven, BELGIUM - APR 21, 2016
Golden body, quite clear. Golden and biscuit malts, soft can sugar sweetness, little to no hops. Odd body, very low carbonation, especially for the style. Taste is good and so is the quality, but it doesn’t look or feel like it. Odd! (33cl bottle from Dekoninck)

Hanoi (848) - Greater Manchester, ENGLAND - FEB 3, 2016
Bottle. Bought without realising it was from the dead hand of Huyghe. Nose is yeast, honey, peach, melon, straw. Very appealing. Taste is overbearingly metallic, dry, yeast, hint of lemon, touch of melon coming through, slight straw, bitter slightly sour metallic finish. Good quality, lower strength beers, are hard to do and a delight when correct. This is a mess, the metallic note dominates leaving little left to savor, i hoped I have a bad bottle, but I suspect not.
