75 cl. Semi hazy hayish yellow, solid white fluffy head, dissipates slowly leaving plenty of lacings. Warm aroma of bread, citrus, malt, fruity esters, yeast. Taste is citrusy and malty, bubble gum, fairly big body with yeast notes, slight alcohol in the finish, more warmth in character than boozy. Very nice balance. Creamy texture, big body, medium carbo. This brewery doesn’t disappoint.

Teku. Bottle. Light amber, clear with medium, white head. Poor lacing, average head retention. Nice fruit, ester aroma with great yeasty and spicey notes. Mild caramel aromas. Taste is rather semi is rather semi-sweet from malts. Medium body, above average carbonation, creamy/oily texture, finish is dry. In general very balanced (esters vs malts) triple, highly drinkable, with slightly alcohol warming in the end.

willisread (1283) - Tokyo, JAPAN - SEP 3, 2015
Bottle from Tanakaya. Pours a hazy gold with a medium-sized off-white head that lasts throughout. Wonderful fruit esters on the nose: banana, muscat, currant and orange with some cinnamon and clove notes as well. Taste is quite similar with a nice bready character along with lots of fruit. Good carbonation with a slight creamy mouthfeel. Hides the 8% ABV immaculately. Nice sweet finish. Classic tripel.

Di colore oro carico, velato; forma un cappello di schiuma bianca, fine e cremosa, dalla discreta persistenza. Naso non molto pronunciato ma con una bella pulizia che permette di coglierne tutte le sfaccettature: crosta di pane, banana, pera, frutta candita (pesca, cedro), qualche sentore floreale ed una bella speziatura del lievito, un po’ di coriandolo ed una spiccata nota “piccante” che solletica le narici. Ottima la sensazione palatale: corpo medio, con un riuscitissimo equilibrio tra vivacità (bollicine) e morbidezza. Dolce in bocca di biscotto, pane e frutta sciroppata (pesca ed albicocca) ma ad equilibrare c’è un profilo abbastanza secco che non la rende mai stucchevole, ed un finale leggermente amaro erbaceo. L’alcool è assolutamente non pervenuto. Pulita, godibile e molto ben fatta, più complessa al naso che al palato.

Pours wheat like golden haze colour, with stable creamy white head. Aroma without note of an alcohol, with notes of wheat, grape, banana, caramel, cinnamon. Flavor: taste is similar, without note of an alcohol, notes of wheat, with fruity esters (banana, grape, hints of oranges), cinnamon, etc. Very well ballanced malt sweetness and hop bitterness. Body is soft, carbonation also. One of the best tripel beers.

suprchunk (2740) - Crestview, Florida, USA - AUG 21, 2015
Pale amber pour. Sizable off white head. Lacing galore. Sweet malt aroma with hints of burnt sugar. Taste is a sweet sugary mess.

Sweet and sour? Am I in a Chinese restaurant? Deliciously frothy, fruity (mostly raisins), bready and a hint of dry and sour on the finish. High alcohol content nicely hidden (am I sweating?). Poured from a bottle.
