3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
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

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.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

4.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
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.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
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.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Golden color with medium white head. Smell is elegant, bananas, dough. Taste is bananas, dough, spices, with a peppery finish. Carbonation is high. A really really good Tripel with some interesting properties which remind me of an intense Weizenbock.
