Pours a nice hazy orange with a good stable head. Aroma is fruity and spicy with some citrus, banana and apricot. Flavor is nice and well carbonated with fruity flavors of apricot, banana and spice with a nice phenolic, bitter finish. Lingers for a long time.

KoNrRiI (683) - Århus, DENMARK - MAR 1, 2015
0.33 bottle. Cloudy, gold color and a medium, thick, white head - nice retention but no lacing whatsoever. Aroma of malts, bananas, citruses, and some spices. Sweet taste once again bearing semblance to bananas, spices, and light malts. Medium body, slick texture, and lively carbonation - the beer also has an unwelcome propensity to foam in one’s mouth. Overall a nice brew, has some flaws which could easily be corrected but otherwise pleasant.

Great fruitiness and easy drinkablity. Seemed a bit too carbonated, but was still well crafted. A great tripel

ebarnes (260) - Beech Grove, Indiana, USA - FEB 28, 2015
12oz bottle from a sample pack. Pours cloudy orange with an ample head that leaves plenty of lacing. Aroma is fruits and spice. The taste starts more on the fruity side but as it warms in the glass the spice notes really come out. The ABV is masked nicely, Really nice tripel.

reggiedunlop (3405) - The dub c, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 26, 2015
Pours a clear golden / orange with a thick, foamy white head...great lacing and retention. Aroma has some candied fruits as well as mild spice and faint leather. Flavor follows suit but steps up the spice and leathery notes...earthy hoppiness and a bit of citrusy rind...definitely a candy sugar sweetness. Mouthfeel is medium and very lively/silky with a dry earthy/bitter/boozy finish.

sonotono (74) - torino, ITALY - FEB 26, 2015
Colore giallo paglierino, leggermente torbida. Schiuma molto abbondante e finissima. Odore speziato, fruttato, leggermente pungente. Dolciastra con finale secco, rotonda e non eccessivamente carbonata.

migwell (87) - Northampton, Massachusetts, USA - FEB 25, 2015
Drinking this out of a Spencer Abbey goblet. Got a surprising overflow of foam on opening. Pours a cloudy pale yellow with a lot of initial head which dissipates into a thin layer. Complex and very well balanced, this is a superior Tripel.

On tap in Cafe Botteltje, Oostende. Light, easy to drink,. Abbey ale, brewed in the classic triple style. Slightly hazy, golden, medium white head. Aroma some sweetness, honey, banana, light spices. Taste malty with some pilsen sweetness (but beer is not swett), some citrus, very smooth. One of the best tripels I ever had.

Gold hazy body with plenty of sediment floating around. Pillow white head at least two fingers worth and stays for a long time.Tangy tart bitter taste. Lemon and bread too.Peppery on the tongue. Creamy feel in the finish.
