Nice golden, hazy color. Bitter and metallic taste. Quite unlike the other tripels I've tasted.

Hazy golden to amber color, medium sized white head, disappeared quickly. Un-interesting aroma of sugar, banana, yeast and alcohol. Decent taste, also some alcohol, sweetness and banana. Medium body, soft carbonation. //bottle from Craft Room

flemmingwillum (1168) - Nysted, DENMARK - APR 13, 2016
UPDATED: APR 13, 2016 Sřd og let blomstret aroma af lavendel. Smagen er ret třr og det er en af de mere bitre tripel. Jeg savner noget sřdme. Let alkoholisk. Lidt tynd fylde.

Icedwarf (1159) - Etten-Leur, NETHERLANDS - MAR 13, 2016
Helder geel bier met stevig schuim. Smaak is krachtig hoppig, licht zoet en ietwat fruitig, bessen en banaan.

mgajdaczewa (1522) - Katowice, POLAND - MAR 11, 2016
W aromacie brzoskwinia i przyprawy, nieco przejrzałych owoców nieco psujących odbiór. W smaku wytrawne, przyprawy, dominuje pieprz, jest lekka brzoskwinia, białe winogrona, nieco próchna. Niezbyt zacne, ale pijalne, alkohol nieźle ukryty.

Biroholik (718) - Sosnowiec, Poland, POLAND - FEB 27, 2016
Kolor: Złoty.
Piana: Konkretna, biała, obfita. Nic do zarzucenia. Długo się trzyma. Pozostawia trwałą koronkę. Fajne małe i średnie oczka.
Zapach: Drożdże. Słodowy i zbożowy. W toe trochę chmielowy.
Smak: Niby wszystko jest na miejscu, bo i słodowość i lekka wytrawność, nawet goryczka dość fajna, ale nie ma to spójności. Finisz kwaskowy, wytrawny. Czuć alkohol, który niestety trochę odpycha. Ciężkie piwo.
Wysycenie: Znów wysokie.
Najgorsze piwo. Mocno nagazowa. Alkohol wyczuwalny. Za dużo wytrawnych nut. Ciężkie, mało pijalne. Nie odczuwałem przyjemności z picia go. Bardziej smakowało jak mocny lager.

heavy (2569) - Split, CROATIA - DEC 22, 2015
Mar ’15. A 0.33 l bottle, from Svijet Piva store, Zagreb. Thanks Zlatko! It poured almost clear deep golden body with huge head. Crisp, herbal and underripe orange peel aroma. Flavor was lightly bitter, spicy, also quite malty, like peaches, honey and typical vanilla with a touch of Belgian yeast. Medium to full in body. Alcohol was evident, even more so in the finish. Although pleasant, not really very good for the style.

CanCrusher (864) - Ilirska Bistrica, SLOVENIA - NOV 29, 2015
Bottle 0,33L. Courtesy of Gregor. Slightly hazy, golden color with long lasting, fizzy head and lively visible carbonation. Moderate yeasty aroma with some bready notes. Taste is medium to heavy bitter with a note of salty snacks and heavy bitter finish. Medium body, oily texture, lively carbonation. OK tripel.
