Pours a hazy orange colour with a medium off white head. Aroma of white wine, clove, floral, yeast, sweet fruits. Initial taste is clove, sweet, and hints of mango. Moving to slight bitter hops on the palate, banana and spices(pepper) for the finish. Great balance, good head retention.

Bottle conditioned, 330ml, aged 5.5yrs. This poured a perfectly clear gold with high conditioning, rocky white head. A beer that ages this well has to be good, subtle spiciness with fruity, peachy background, a faint sweetness and a rich maltiness leading to a lightly bitter finish. very good.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: AUG 19, 2007 Bottiglia da 33cl in un bar a Gavi Ligure, accompagnata con piadina prosciutto crudo e pomodoro. Colore giallo scuro molto pronunciato, leggermente torbida, schiuma un poco evanescente; aroma non molto forte, ma con una nota di dolcino che rimane anche nel sapore che non è poi così armonizzato come nella descrizione commerciale. Buona tripel comunque.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours light golden with a massive white head. Lots of lovely tiny bubbles. Really yeasty aroma at first and not as floral as I would expect. Further sniffing reveals a bit more of that floral character you’d expect from belgian tripel yeast. Lots of good esters. Touch of grain. First flavors are nice and sweet. Lots of banana. Some clove and pepper. Finish is yeasty with some of that pepper. Body is on the full side of medium. What a perfect example of what a tripel should be.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottled 33cl. Black pepper, lemon, melon, yeast and spices in the nose. The head is rather big, creamy and lasting and has a surprising light beige color. The beer is hazy orange - A beautiful Tripel. The taste is very sweet, soft and pleasant in every way. Bready, herbal elements emerge. A nice alcoholic touch shows up just before the finish. Lightly spicy, flowery with a good hop character. Full bodied. This beer leaves a beautiful lacing. Hints of coriander. Fruits include melon, orange and lemon. The finish is dry malty, bready with reminiscent hints of caramel and coffee.
