3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle at Huppel the Pub, Den Haag. Poured a cloudy medium amber with a frothy white head. The aroma is yeast and wheaty. The flavour is medium bitter, alcoholic, but rather smooth and lacking liqourice considering the ABV. Probably one of the smoothest and nicest Tripel’s I’ve had.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Sunday 16 Dec 2012: Antwerp Gollem. 33cl glass from the tap.
Golden yellow body, almost clear, on top a white, full head.
Mild citrus feel to the aroma, some yeast and semi-sweet maltiness added to the smells.
The taste was biscuit malty with a hint of citrus fruit filling. Not as exciting as I hoped for: not bland, but not far off. Hid the alcohol well enough, so there must have been something flavoursome in there!
Not a great start to my evenings drinking, but it did make the next beer taste great (a John Martin Diabolici).

Nice full beer, sweet and spicy with a bitter aftertaste. Not the best beer ever, but I would certainly recommend it it you like tripel.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Looks great with good colour and head. Feisty and characterful beer. Smells fruity and like bread. Tastes malty and heavy with bread. Hoppy bitterness to finish. Very awesome beer, but takes some time to digest before you can drink another beer.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle:   Dirty straw, very cloudy, large foamy off-white head, a few bits of lacing.   Bright bready aroma, a bit floral, some dank mustiness but its minor.   Bright breadiness on the tongue, a bit heavy, slightly
fruity, light floral aspects.   The body on this reminds me of American made Tripels in that its fairly bready.   Seems like most Belgian examples are more airy and bright.   This is fairly heavy and bright.   Bready up
front, a little fruity and floral on the backside.   Seems an average example, but its fairly tasty.   ABV is well hidden.   A little mealy on the backside, but its not bad.   Lingering sweet and floral breadiness, with a
hint of citrus.   This Tripel is a little different from others, but it makes it a little unique too.
