250ml brown bottle. Poured golden, huge head with a dense centre and soapy edges. Aroma is sweet and floral, lemon notes, pears and trace alcohol. Fruity in the mouth, slight spice, alcohol is there but not overwhelming. Finishes with a good hoppy bite. Prickly carbonation, a tad too much, otherwise pleasant.

Golden colour; sparkling like champagne both with fluffy and persistent foam. Smell of hops, light orange. Sweetness followed by final light bitterness.

Golden, huge lasting head. Rather weak taste, some fruity notes with some yeast, no finish, disappointing beer.

Alusmamuts (431) - LATVIA - NOV 17, 2014
Golden clear with rich white head. Sweet yeasty aroma with honey notes. Taste not so rich. Lasting honey sweetness on the tongue tip, rough remaining bitterness later.

Pours a hazy golden with a big fluffy head. Nose is Belgian yeasty, lemon, earthy, a bit of bready malty. Taste is fruity yeast ester, nothing overly distinct, on the sweet side, musty, a bit earthy on the finish. It's ok, but too sweet and I don't love the yeast character.

Bottle. Long lasting frothy head, slightly hazy yellow golden color. Aromas are sour and fresh: nothing very specific, but very nice overall. Small hint of wood, a little floral even. Taste is (almost) everything I like in a tripel: strong, robust, sour. Alcohol builds in the beginning, bitter middle, aftertaste is is mellow, grains. Perfectly balanced. Winner.

Gorm (1376) - Sandnes, NORWAY - NOV 7, 2014
Klar gyllen farve med kremet lyst skum. Lukt av malt, sitrus og banan. Smak av karamell, banan, sitrus og krydder. Import.

nilsas (1622) - Bryne, NORWAY - NOV 7, 2014
Dunkel gul farge. Dekkende hvitt skum. Duft av humle, malt og mandel. Syrlig smak med en ettersmak av mandel.

VincentKabel (221) - Haarlem, NETHERLANDS - NOV 6, 2014
Light golden beer with a firm bright white head. Strong carbonation. Malts, some herbas and spices, warming alcohol and dry aftertaste, slightly sweet. Pretty nice and refreshing tripel beer.

tommann (2811) - Dudley, West Midlands, ENGLAND - NOV 5, 2014
330ml bottle. Pours light gold with a medium head. Aroma is sweet straw and rubbery corn. Taste is sweet to start with a rubbery alcohol finish. Strong carbonation.

It pours clear golden with a frothy white head. The aroma is malts, yeast, herbs, spices and citrus. It tastes light sour, medium sweet and medium bitter, especially in the finish. The carbonation is a bit too high for this beer. A decent abbey beer, but nothing more.
