Orangey clear pour with a huge foam head. Slightly skunked. Aroma of banana & bubblegum, yeast some acetate. After working through a layer of delicious boozy foam I was able to get a whiff. Flavor of yeasty honey sweetness. The alcohol is sharp through and though. Also there’s some buttery/butterscotch flavor. Complex, but overpowering. I didn’t get much in the way of bitterness or sourness. Good mid carb.

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.

Bottle from The Counter in Palo Alto, CA. Aroma is slight apple juice, fruited breads, lemon shortbreads, orange blossoms. Taste is crisp...spring / summer flowers with apples, stone fruit and the expected chalky wheat / cloves of a Belgian but not overwhelming. Great summer beer with tons of depth. Very close to the Chimay White for me.

Flaska från Belgoklubben. Dimmigt gul med vitt skum. Skumbanan och örter i doften. Lätt kryddig smak med en del jäst.

Giallo arancio molto torbida e con sottile schiuma frizzantina. Ottimo aroma floreale. Fantastica al palato, dolce, amaro accennato, fruttata, carbonazione media perfetta. Molto lievito sospeso. Alcool ben presente. Eccellente.

dmoncki (42) - Barcelona, SPAIN - JUN 23, 2015
Aroma complejo a caramelo, algo de plátano, pera y especias. Excelente en boca con gran cuerpo y mezcla de matices en un tono donde predomina el dulce y las especias, con algo de plátano.

Hazy golden beer, white head. Nose is hops, belgian yeast, spice, malt. Hoppy, citric flavor with spice notes, caramel. Finishes with hops and booze, some sweet caramel notes. Pretty nice balance.

Put this bottle down during a Belgian tasting. Tripel flavors abound here with the fruit and burn.

Iznogud (1470) - CROATIA - JUN 17, 2015
Bottle, 330 ml from MBR, Zagreb. Cloudy yellow, white head. Fruity aroma. Malty, fruity, spicy and yeasty. Nothing to write home about.

Not a well balanced tripel. High alcohol content downs any of the other flavour. Little aroma, mild caramel notes. Medium carbonation.
