A top-fermenting golden strong beer of 7.6% ABV, that is very firm-bodied, fruity-dry and assertive. It has a fine hop-aroma (dry-hopping is used) and a splendid apertif bitterness in palate and finish.

Vinx (63) - ITALY - SEP 12, 2014
Aroma of caramel and not so much more, just a few hints of spices. Big white foam which doesn’t last long. A bit under-attenuated so that it’s too much sweet and heavy-bodied for its style. Medium-high carbonation which is good. It’s pleasant but really not a champion for its style. From a tripel I expect an exploding fizzy aroma of spices and hops and above all a dry texture, all things this beer doesn’t actually have. A cheap tripel even though its cost is not at all different from that of the more famous ones.

milo91hd (111) - Lecce, ITALY - AUG 23, 2014
Bottiglia, colore ambrato con un bel cappello di schiuma abbastanza persistente, l’aroma è il gusto sono quelli tipici delle classiche Tripel belghe. Davvero niente male

Een tripel die me tegengevallen is. Normaal ben ik een grote fan van tripels, maar deze kon me niet bekoren

paulvanpelt (333) - Reusel, NETHERLANDS - AUG 16, 2014
Geelblond, nevelig bier met witte schuimkraag. Aroma van gras, kruiden, hop, gist. Licht bitter, licht zoet. Zacht, medium body. Ok, maar geen speciale tripel.

zvsn (595) - ISRAEL - JUL 23, 2014
Bottle poured into Trappist glass. Hazy orange golden with a big bubbly white head. Sweet fruit, citrusy and Belgian yeast aroma. Sweet, fruity, spicy and quite boozy, a bit metallic touch, not very balanced. A bit rough texture. Overall not very good.

DSG (5799) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - JUN 5, 2014
Bottle. Cloudy golden with a white head. Aroma of honey, flowers, citrus peels, graininess, yeast and fruitiness. Sweet honey-ish flavor with floral spiciness and fruitiness. Medium-bodied. Not my thing and not very Tripel-like.

Rugamu (105) - SPAIN - MAY 24, 2014
Buena triple belga con reminiscencias típicas de las triples añadiendo unos sabores a platano y frutos secos curiosos. El problema de esta cerveza, en botella de 33 cl, es lo excesivamente gaseosa que es, tanta burbuja no te deja disfrutar bien del trago y además es extremadamente duradera. No creo que vuelva a repetir si hay otras.

tomer (1697) - Rishon Le Zion, ISRAEL - MAY 23, 2014
Bottle, stable long lasting bubbly head, hazy lightish orange colour, amroma of honeycomb, yeast and dirt, flavour of candy with some fruity notes and somehoney im the back, smooth and quite light, though some alcohol intruding as the beer warms up. A bit simple but nice and easy to drink.
