3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
330 ml bottle. L09/12157. BB 06/15. From bierzwerg.de.
Cloudy golden colour with a small to average sized white head.
The aroma is fruity hoppy with yeast, spices, malt and candies. Nice.
The flavour is exotic fruits, mild hoppy bitterness, spices, malt and candies.
Nice. Tasty. The alcohol is lurking there somewhere but it’s not that evident. Very nice tripel at least after the Dominus Triple.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle at Ultime Atome (Brussels, Belgium)
Aroma: Spice, barnyard, some grass and citrus aromas.
Appearance: A hazy golden color, with a white head.
Taste: Moderate sweetness, and moderate bitterness. Doesn’t taste its abv.
Palate: Medium bodied, dry, with an average carbonation.
Nothing lambic-like in this one. It’s not a surprise, but I was secretly hoping for something similar to 3 Fonteinen’s ’beersel’ non-lambic line of beers.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle shared by Tmoney99. Pours a clear golden color with some fine cloudy sediment floating throughout; small medium sized white head that disappears. The aroma is citrus, tangy, Belgian yeast and sweet notes. The flavor is rather weak; dry, yeast, citrus with some sweetness. This didn’t taste like most tripels that I’ve had.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle at home. It pours clear golden yellow with a thick off-white head. The nose is hay, spice, musty, white sugar, herbal edge, sweet pear and rotten apple. The taste is initially pretty sweet...candy sugar, melon, pear then hay, straw, spice, alcohol warmth, some astringency, mouldy wood and rotten fruit with a warming, spicy finish. Medium body and lively carbonation. Not a great fan of this style and don’t like the taste much...so yeah not really for me!

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Medium vast sticky white head, disappears between regular speed and quick and leaves a sticky lacing on top of a light hazy yellow colored beer with an orange tint.
Smell lots of apple, pear, yeast, dough, hints of herbs, malts, slight caramel,
Taste apple, malts, caramel, herbs, grass, hops, hay, grains, corn, some bitterness, barley malts, some leaves and sweeter dried herbs, hints of sweet, spicy, creamy and sticky.
Aftertaste of grassy herbs, dried herbs, some hints of fruit, light spicy grassy hops.
Low to medium carbo, soft light tingly mouthfeel, good medium body (tends lightly to go fuller) and a creamy texture.
When I smelled the beer I thought it would be another unbalanced tripel with a stingy grainy touch and some clay/glue, but apart from the grains there is no stingyness and no clay/glue also nothing unbalanced to find, so that is good. The alcohol is well hidden. Than again, it doesn’t go further than more than a balanced typical Belgian style triple.
