330 ml bottle poured into a Westmalle chalice. Use by date of 8/12/14. Pours a cloudy pale yellow. With a large fluffy head that dissipates at a medium rate leaving behind lots of lacing. Smells of bread dough, yeast, banana, pear, and light clove. Taste is bready, yeast, banana, pear, other light fruits and a barely detectable alcohol warmth. Has a medium bitter dry finish. Not overly sweet, very balanced. Full mouthfeel with a lively level of carbonation. Very good beer, never disapoints.

Im Glas gelb, orange, leicht trüb und schaumig. In der Nase hefige, blumige Noten, brotig, Honig. Am Gaumen Hefe, Süße, leicht alkoholisch, blumig am Abgang. Asufüllend, aber mit vergleichsweise wenig Kohlensäure für ein Tripel.

Bottle gifted from a friend after they’d held on to it for a few years, so is slightly aged. Boozy, sherry-like smell - and lots of raisin and wood flavours coming out. Would be interesting to compare this with a ’fresh’ bottle too.

Bif (1420) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - AUG 23, 2014
Pours a cloudy golden color with a thick head that fades to good lacing. Aroma of fruit, citrus with bit of spice in the background. Taste of tropical fruit, bit of citrus and spice. Mild bitterness and a clean finish. Moderate body, smooth and well balanced. No hint of the 8% ABV. Enjoyable beer that is easy to drink.

750 bottle from Brewfest Beverage. Very pale beige orange with lasting flat head and lace. Spicy peppery grassy bready aroma. Very mild vanilla and tropical fruit sweetness with a touch of tartness and mild peppery grassy finish. Medium body soft carbo. Hmm...I’m not blown away like I had hoped. Very good. Has a little dirty dishwater aftertaste and my glasses are sparkling clean. Is that age?

Transfer from BA review on 12-25-12- Poured from bottle into wine glass Appearance – The beer poured a hazy orange amber color with a one finger, rather fizzy white head. The head fades relatively fast giving a decent level of lacing on the sides of the glass. Smell – The aroma was lighter then I would have expected with it being mainly of a candied sugar and light fruit aroma of peach and apple. Mixed with these sweeter smells were some notes of a bready and wheaty nature as well, giving it a rather traditional triple, but light traditional, triple aroma. Taste – The taste starts out with a lighter fruit and bready flavor. Flavors of pear and peach mixed with a lighter orange flavor, create the fruit flavor base, while the bready flavor has some light notes of a wheat bread nature. As the flavor advances, the yeast starts to make its presence known. This mixed with a light candied flavor as well as a newly arriving clove spice and boozy flavor. The boozy flavor gets stronger as the taste advances further, and at the end the mix of sweet, boozy and bready flavors leaves a satisfying and warming flavor on the tongue. Mouthfeel – For an 8% abv. triple the body of the beer is just above average in its creaminess and chewiness with a carbonation level that is very appropriate for the style at a medium to slightly above medium level, Both are nice for accentuating the fruity, sweet and boozy flavors of the brew. Overall – A rather delicious triple. It had a little more boozy flavors then would have been expected for its 8% abv. strength, and its nose was a little weak, but overall it had great flavors, a nice look and a wonderful feel.

Head is white, frothy and huge but diminishes mostly. Body is clear light yellow with sparkles. Aroma contains straw, citrus fruits, spruce, and banana, vanilla, grape, raisin, pear, peach and spices. Flavor is light acidic, then bitter and light sweet, then sweet and finishes in bitter. Body is medium with creamy texture and soft carbonation. Truly a great tripel. Many sweet fruits and a bitter finish.

Pours a cloudy, slightly greenish pale amber with one finger of white head diminishing gradually to a thin skim and moderate lacing. Nose is light malt, yeasty, orange peel, slight alcohol. Taste is sweet and yeasty, clove and pepper, finishing bitter. Mouth feel is medium bodied but sticky, with mild warming.
