Pale golden colour, white head. Sweet aroma, banana and yeast. Sweet malty flavour. Sweet malty finish, some diacetyl. Meh.

Bottle from Brusin ales. Pours golden with an inch of white foam. Fresh fruit and bread notes on the nose. Kind of sweet and yeasty on the tongue but it feels a little thin. Finishes clean. Eh!

ME: Bangor. This is a pretty boring Trip with too much sweetness and not enough flavour development.

EddyBeer1 (840) - Brussels, BELGIUM - AUG 5, 2013
Dorée foncée, pétillance fine de visu mais trop gazeuse au palais, mousse fine persistante. Bien maltée d’entrée, notes d’épices et de fruits, un rien métallique. Un triple parmi d’autres...

Bottle shared with Dutchdrebus, Joes, Martinus and Ansjelaah. Clear orange color, small white head. Smell and taste lightly malts, a bit too sweet for a tripel imo, a bit yeasty. Hmm average

BlackHaddock (3488) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - JUL 10, 2013
16th Dec 2012: on-tap in the Antwerp Gollem. Slight haze to my golden/yellow bodied beer, on top a thin white head, it was larger when poured but by the time it arrived at the table it had sunk into it’s self somewhat. Fairly sweet malt and fruity nose, this also carried on into the taste. The beer has something about it that I like: the yeast content sits well with the alcohol and although it might be a bit sweet for some it certainly hit the spot with me. Complex and interesting: never seen it on-tap before or since.

Clear, orange/golden, medium white head, gone in 10 seconds. Very little carbonation.. Aroma of hop and fruits, bit sour. Great taste, little sweet with a little bitter aftertaste. Very good beer.
