3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
0,33L bottle (from Wine of Galilee), BB 07.17. Pours Clear golden with off-white head. The head stays. Aroma is sweet, fresh fruits, yeast. Flavor is very sweet, fruits, yeast, malt, very mild bitterness. Alcohol is well covered. Overall: ok brew. No notable hops, so I would say it’s actually more Belgian strong ale than tripel for me.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from a trade with Douberd. Pours clear golden with a big creamy white head. Aroma is light fruity,with moderate sweet malts and sugars. Lively spritzy mouthfeel. Taste is light sweet, sugars, marzipan with a decent dry grassy finish, weak burn from the alcohol. Not my favourite style, but this one was enjoyable.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Authentic abbey tripel, taken over from Damy in 1994. A well-balanced but very stereotypical, golden blond tripel with estery fruitiness, sweet and soft maltiness, yeasty, with warming alcohol and some herbal hop bitterness in the finish. One of the somewhat better Huyghe beers, in my opinion.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Color dorato pallido, aroma leggero ma molto dolce, in bocca è decisamente gasata e l’impatto davvero troppo dolce.

Een van de beste tripels die er in België te vinden zijn naar mij mening. Ik ben fan.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Comprata al discount, versa di un pallido giallo dorato, molto trasparente, con un grande, spumosa, frizzante luminosa schiuma bianca. Aroma decisamente più luppolato di quanto pensassi, con lievi sentori di frutta e lievito. Un pò troppo gassata, a mio avviso, comunque l’alcool non è così in evidenza e il retrogusto risulta speziato. Potrebbe essere anche meglio di così...

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
330 ml bottle. Pale golden yellow, quite clear, with a big, frothy, fizzy bright white head. Very interesting smell. Definitely more hoppy than a tradition tripel, at least to my nose, slightly funky, lots of fruit esters and yeast influence. Slightly spicy with some burnt caramel/toffee in the background. Sigh, as expected it’s way too over carbonated to be enjoyed properly. It’s like drinking air, really. The alchool is relatively well hidden, slightly overly sweet, but the drinkability is close to zero for me. Fruity and spicy aftertaste. Fizzy carbonation, light body, slightly creamy texture. Not something I’d buy again I’m afraid.
