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

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.

En fin trippel. Smak och doft av belgisk jäst, malt, örtig, kryddig med toner av koriander, päron och apelsin. Pepprig eftersamk, torr beska.

Bière très joliment habillée, à la fois moderne et classe avec son étiquette en forme d’ogive. Jolies couleurs dans les tons pastels. Et une date qui invite au respect : 1897. Couleur dorée soutenue et brillante pour cette triple de 8 % abv. Clarté nette. Bulles très fines en fontaine au centre de mon verre calice, et 2 autres fontaines latérales . Très joli. Mousse blanche un peu cassé, qui nappe à 3 mm, crémeuse. Arômes de houblon, pomme, citron, avec une pointe de cerise du Nord. Texture bien soyeuse. Prise de bouche très jolie sur l’amertume, mais avec une belle balance sur les céréales qui suit quasiment immédiatement. 2ème bouche avec un joli mélange houblon/malt, à l’équilibre mais bien houblonné. 3ème avec une pointe originale de fruits blancs, des amandes fraîches. Arrière-bouche bien fondue. La longueur montre une belle pointe épicée dans cet ensemble, avec des fruits blancs et du pain blanc frais. La levure est légère mais fine et efficace. L’alcool soutient le sujet sans excès. Cool. La finale montre une très belle amertume fine et noble. Une très grande bière où on hésite sur la note maximale.... Une plus grande finale peut-être, une plus grande levure, mais cela tient à un cheveu du père Lieven...

Clear orange white head. Spicy, medium sweet triple, with some clove and a funky hint. Lacks a decent body.

33 cl. bottle @ home, bought @ Hogerdijk, Culemborg. Hazy golden with a thin white head. Fruity yeasty aroma. Sweet taste with lively carbonation. Pleasant bitterness in the aftertaste. Decent Tripel.
