3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Golden beer with a big white head. Aroma of sweet malt, cotton candy, yeast, spice, some fruit. Citrus and summer fruit with yeast and malt coming together to give it some richness and depth. Dry and not sickly sweet like many poor attempts at triples. This one is nice.

Golden coloured, and seemed quite carbonated. This one wasn’t too bad. Maybe I was expecting something else from this ale, thus I think my drinking was a bit biased with this one. It was a tasty beverage, but I think it was a little too light for what I like. I absolutely love the head on this one, the bubbles’ lace is kind of mesmerizing! My buddy really enjoyed this one, more than I did, if that means anything.

Bottle, at home.
Golden, nice and longlasting white head. Not filtered. Sweet aroma of malt. First sweet flavor, next light bitter. The strenght is felt.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle: Poured a light golden color ale with a medium head with about average retention. Aroma is kind of sweet with something floral also included in the mix. Taste is very enjoyable with some wheat mixed with spices that are well balance with an nice floral undertone all the way through the end. Overall, a very fine Abbey Triple but maybe still a notch down from Westmalle in my humble opinion.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
75cl bottle, 131484 on cork. Wonderous gold color w/ all kinds of bubbles floating, great lace, head a little lacking. orange, lemon, fruity nose, vanilla, malt...Very elegant sweet/spicy beer. body is perfect, not heavy at all, but vibrant and sexy. Finish fades into spice mud with hop accents. Solid beer, drinks like a feather: easy. SPicing is apparent, but mysterious and not overdone. I’m impressed.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours an amber color with copious co2 and a full, rocky, white head. Aroma is fruity, fresh and lightly grassy with a malt background. Flavor is sweet at the start with a yeasty bite at the finish. A metallic flavor lingers when it is colder, but dwindles as it warms. Palate is lively with plenty of co2, medium bodied, lightly creamy, yet crisp. Looks like a tripel, smells like a tripel, tastes like a tripel… I enjoyed this beer, yet did not fall in love as I was expecting. It has the right idea, but does not pull off the complexity or the balance of a great tripel.

Pours golden orange with a tight head. Simple light citrus aroma, with dusty pleasant yeast on the palate. Hint of florals, citrus in aftertaste as well. A good, slightly above average bottle-conditioned triple. Would try again.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pale and golden with an unimpressive white head. Nice floral, spicy aroma with some candi sugar and mineral smell. Spritzy and dry for a Tripel. Good body and a bit of finishing bitterness. Some herbal flavors. Recommended. In general I prefer a Tripel that has a creamier and less sharp quality to it, though.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
A slightly hazy Orange tinted beer with a light beige head. Corriander & bubblegum with a lemon twist. Sweet & fruity with a slight spice flavor, a hoppy herbalicious follow. Very good but a bit fizzy. Similar to the Moinette Blonde I just had.
