a_cross (639) - Poole, Dorset, - NOV 15, 2012
Cloudy, very light brown; yeast and caramel nose; malty sweetness initially, light fruit and spice, oranges, lemon and pepper; generally restrained; nice, well balanced, but felt it a little too peppery and just lacking a bit of oomph, really. A relative disappointment - expectations were high.

Pours hazy orange and with fine yeast sediments floating around, has a lasting off-white head. Classic belgian yeast spiced aroma. Flavour holds a classic belgian spiced yeast flavour and with mild caramel malt base

electrotype (368) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 17, 2015
Gros nez de triple au sucre bien présent mais également bien balancé. Les épices et la cassonade sont de la partie. Une imposante mousse demeure très vivante tout au long de l’expérience. En bouche, c’est étonnement mince, je m’attendais à quelque chose de plus costaud! Ça se boit très bien mais ne présente rien de bien palpitant.

Bottle. No detailed notes, entering some big dogs I’ve missed from earlier tastings. Nicely balanced tripel with a bit more flower than fruit in the aroma and taste.

Paladares (59) - Madrid, SPAIN - JUL 15, 2015
Botella. Color rubio muy pálido y turbio. Aroma complejo. Floral y especiado. Clavo. En boca resulta también muy floral en el que aprecio también regaliz. Un conjunto de sabores brutal. Bastante compleja, y seguro que con nuevas catas, encontraré distintos matices. Eso sí... deja un regustillo final.... Ummm...

AirForceHops (4508) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - JUL 11, 2015
750 ml bottle recently purchased. Side by side comparison with Kasteel Blonde 11%. Amber like color in a golden murky liquid. Aroma is lots of fruits, peach, pear, biscuit malts.

The sweet malt is balanced well with spicy notes. Traces of citrus and perfume notes, shows light hop bitterness as well. Much more complex then I would have guessed. At 8% no alcohol is noticeable in the flavor. St. Bernardus wins this taste test hands down. I wish I would have picked up a Tripel Karmeliet to go along with these two. But I already rate that so... No.

Vells (1000) - Riga, LATVIA - JUL 11, 2015
Great brew.. One of the first I tried in craft beer world, time went, but its still great. Awesome maltiness, one of the most distinct yeastiness, spices, lovely fruitiness. Moderate sweetness, quite high bitterness for triple. Nice, well balanced brew.

The beer has a golden color with a bit of amber and the head is white and voluminous. Strong floral scent from the hops. In the taste, these floral notes are accompagnied with a caramel-like sweetness. A well-balanced and very tasty Tripel.

The description does not lie, the balance between the sweet and bitter is amazing, I could drink liters of this beer and never get fed up.
