Has a decent head, among an amber, golden glowing, cloudy color. Floral hops at the beginning, together with clove, pear and a biscuity maltiness, spiced with nutmeg. The most outstanding thing to the nose is the intense, floral, illustrating hop note among slightly funky Belgian yeast. The same thing applies to the taste, floral, grassy notes define the first impression. The processed hops aren’t particularly bitter, but they do confirm the spices of the brew outstandingly well, adding a lot more character to the beer, than the usual Tripel would allow. Spiciness has a semi-dry note to it, while peppers, cinnamon, ripe banana, pear and apple, as well as burned caramel shine through. Includes also an earthy, herbal coordinate, close to a Saison, which gets detectable during the slightly bitter finish, accompanied by soft, slightly slick yeast.

Hazy golden body with a huge, creamy, white head that never gets smaller than a finger-thick pillow of dense foam. My chalice is covered in beautiful draperies when the beer is gone. The aroma is strong and spicy, I actually get lots of cinnamon and nutmeg, quite unusual for the style. Also citrus and banana. How fun! The spicy notes of the strong flavour are more coriander-like, I get lots of Belgian yeast, banana, alcohol and pale malts. The long-lasting finish has notes of honey and flowers. The taste is moderate sweet and moderate bitter. Mid-bodied and dry with a lively carbonation. An unusually interesting tripel, I’ll certainly buy this again!
[33 cl bottle, enjoyed 2 years before BB date, from Vinmonopolet Vika, Oslo]

Bottle. Amber Body with white not very long lasting head. Aroma is ripe fruits with hints of yeast. Taste is fruity and yeasty with some hints of sourness. Aftertaste is sweet balanced by some bitterness and some alcahol.

shaynsawchuk (552) - Mississauga, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 12, 2014
330 mL bottle. Pours golden nectar with a frothy cap of white head. Sweet honeyed peach on the nose, doughy with clove and allspice, chewing gum and cream, woodsy. Balance is on the sweeter side of the style, with just a hint of bitterness. Full bodied and full textured with high carbonation. Stellar, a superlative tripel.

Diabobale (239) - ITALY - NOV 11, 2014
Bevuta alla spina. Un bicchiere tira l’altro. Di colore ambrato pallido, con un buon bouquet di fiori e frutta, armoniosa nell’equilibrio tra dolcezza dei malti e amarezza dei luppoli, molto beverina

Good triple beer, I was impressed by the apoarence. A lot of bubbles which make this beer very particular.

CraftyBeerTour (77) - Barcelon, SPAIN - NOV 10, 2014
33cl bottle. Lively pour. Pure white creamy head springs forth. Aroma of fruit skins, bready malts and cream cakes. Champagne-like carbonation. Dark gold and hazy once fully poured. Big fat creamy head. Flavour has lots of sweet biscuit. Lots of zip, then a creamy linger, and a very delicate bitterness, as the label says!
