4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Dark orangle gold with just a bit of head. Sweet without being too sweet or fruity. There’s an initial bite of hops but just enough to balance the sweetness, not overwheming at all. Very nice.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from de Bierschuur in Poppel. The beer is golden blonde colored and pours a stable and compact white head, with nice carbonation. The aroma is a nice palate of malts, citrus fruits and orange peels but also with a nice spicy bitterness. The taste is medium bodied and is pleasantly bitter with spicy and malty notes. In the background there is a light sweetness with citrus fruits and banana notes. The finish is malty and changes into a sweet hop bitterness.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Cloudy muddled gold with a thin rocky white head. Aged for over a year, not 100% sure how long, but it’s definitely been aged. Aromas of apricot and wheat but without so much sweetness. A bit of gently oxidised malty belgian blonde malt on the aroma too. Swell flavor with a big bold belgian blonde malt biscuitiness, toast, barn hay (but without any saison like esters), a bit muddled overall but it lends a nice chewy fullness to a gently boozy, well aged trippel.

Bottle. Honey color, strong foam head. Aroma reminds of IPA: pineapple, lychee, dried lemon, hint of yeast. Taste is a very agreeable, quite refreshing blend. Exotic fruits, pine, lemon, all mixed with a very agreeable tripel taste. Slightly fruity, sticky aftertaste. Not bad.
