Balanced triple. Not too sweet, not too bitter. Feels lighter, sightly hoppier than some other tripels.

anstei (874) - Zurich, SWITZERLAND - MAR 12, 2016
Bottle from Wittich web shop. A tripel rather on the hoppy side! Less sweet than expected, and actually not so much more powerful as the 6 as it could be. Hints of sourness, but really not as much that it would justify putting it in the commercial deScription. Good, but not outstanding.

Estilo tripel de una espuma densa y cremosa. Rubia, color pálido ambarino, de aromas florales y afrutados y un sabor equilibrado y armonioso entre amargo y dulce, terminando con un discreto amargor seco.

ARH (1093) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - FEB 28, 2016
375 nL bottle poured into a snifter. The aroma is a blend of banana, clove, and vanilla. It pours a brilliant clear gold yellow (with sediment by bottle’s end) and topped by a white, whipped head with great retention and lace. The taste is a medium high sweet and medium / medium light bitter. The slick texture has a light, airy fizz carbonation with a medium light body flavored up front with banana and other tropical fruits, as well as doughy bread. It finishes with clove, banana, vanilla, and biscuit notes and leaves an aftertaste that’s clean with light clove.
