4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours golden yellow the color of the sun in the sky. A cloud like head of white foam that stays forever to a layer on top and some sticky lace. It’s hazy and and speckled.
Nose is fragrant with light fruits. Lemon rind nice and sweet. A little orange and some tropical sweetness too. it’s herbal and sweet has a faint little spice. A light banana develops as it warms and there was short splash of bubblegum when I first opened the bottle that disappeared. Malt is light and honey like with a little bread. I am picking up a tarter fruit like apricot .
Taste is splendid. It’s impeccably crafted and in absolute harmony. The balance is perfection and the fruits all come together sweetly and a with a bit of tart from the apricot. the banana is laid over the top like lightness and air. The malt is fluffy and superb. There is a faint hop bitter but it’s so light. There is a nice toffee richness behind the malt that tastes like it wants out but remains restrained. It finishes dry and with a light bit of alcohol on the palate.
This tripel is one of the best. It is outstanding in every way and it is everything you expect in the style. Chalky yeast and and a deep but light fruit character. Delicate toasted malt and a little pin prick of hop bitter. It’s whimsical and yet tall and upright. You can almost imagine that the jolly looking monk on the bottle is the real genius behind this beer. It’s as if he is saying "our backs are straight but we do know how to have a little fun when no one is looking." Indulgent and very very good.

What can you say about this beer other than I can’t imagine how they could make it better. Hits the nail on the head in terms of balance, alcohol, and mouthfeel. Spicy to boot.

Love the smell. Very sweet smelling. Appearance is very cloudy. You can see chunks of yeast floating. Sweet tasting, almost like banana. Overall, a great beer.

3.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Light flowery aroma with some lighter straw and fruit aromas. Pours a clear golden color with lots of head. The taste is mostly sweet but has a light bitter bite on the end. Very light bodied and effervescent. This was quite pleasant not too sweet like so many tripels, the dryness in the finish i was also fond of.

Mooie goudgele kleur met goede schuimkraag. Zoetige fruitige geur. Fruitge smaak met zoetige tonen van honing. Veel, maar niet te veel koolzuur.

Has all the ingredients of a high quality Belgian tripel. It’s even a little more special due to the slightly sour taste of fruit that gives the beer an extra depth. Really good.
