Yellow colour, sprankling, large white head. Hoppy aroma, some grass, light herby. Full body, with a hoppy taste. Finish is sweet-bitter, light alcoholic, very enjoyable.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Golden/orange, nice white head. Dry hoppy aroma with some vanilla notes. Flavor brings some hops, some malts, some alcohol. But this was quite boring to be a tripel.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottled. Sampled at Delirium Café, Göteborg.
Clear amber, huge creamy head. Dry-ish, tobacco-like, caramelly nose. Rounded mouthfeel. Residual sugars and unbalanced, as it’s not fully fermented. Honey notes as well as herbal. Yeah, I know it’s weird.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Fluffy to creamy off-white head over orange beer with amber shine. Caramel and candy sugar nose, bit herbal & grassy, but not hoppy. Citrus, pickles. Taste is marked by burnt sugar, and sweet-alcoholic tones. Bitterish-sweetish character, with a long-flowing finish, getting sweeter. Just faint citrus notes. Quite dry, despite all the sugars. Texture tripel-thin but alcohol is anything but hidden. Rather coarse tripel, IMO.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottled (BB 06/2007)
Golden color, big foamy head, lace. Aroma has metal, burnt sugars and sweetish fruits. Medium-bodied. Good balanced bitterness and malt profile, decent alcoholic bite and long hoppy aftertaste. Hints of brown (burnt) sugars in the flavor. Extra sweetness (sugar) drops total value of this beer more to bulk tripel class, but I wonder what a couple of years in the cellar would do to this.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Served in a trappist glass with a creamy and fully lasting head of one centimeter. Appearance very good! Aroma is fruity and yeasty. You smell it immediately when you open the bottle. Flavor is good (not bad, but just like those other Belgian tripels).

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
(Bottled) Very hazy golden color with a largeish, frothy and bubbly, lacy head. Fruity and mildly yeasty, acidic aroma with some hops. Fruity, moderately sweet, toffeeish flavor. Medium to full-bodied, acidic palate with slightly sharp carbonation. A decent, acidic and fruity tripel. Nothing special as a tripel, but a very ok brew.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
(Bottle 33 cl) My version with 7% ABV. Golden with a huge, fluffy head. Some bittersweet notes of malt with the hops most pronounced in the finish. Lightly burned malt in this according to the label. Nice and rather classical tripel. 280196
