Bottle, thanks Eddan.
Clear dark golden with a small white head. Aroma of fruit, some light spices, apricot and some alcohol. Similar taste. The body was rather weak on this one. Drinkable but not that special.

@Eddan: ganska distinkt stickande soft med tydlig persikatoner. Smaken är lite lenare med en ganska enkel persikasmak. Eftersmaken och kroppen något tunn.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Beautiful pour! Yellow clear golden with a massive white cream like foamy head. Yeast hop and malt aroma. Very typical tripel smell. Fresh and fruity. Huh? Really weird taste. Somewhat sweet but hard to describe what I get. I would say very malty. Sugar, and I mean actual sugar flavor. Good body, medium to full with big Co2. Strange one, not nasty but difficult. Not one I?m trying again in the near future.

Bought a bottle at Bert’s Bierhuis. The beer has a golden color and nice large white head, CO2 level is perfect. In the aroma tones of flowers and oranges. The taste of this tripel is very floral and has a full body with nice bitters. The finish is fresh with nice bitters in the aftertaste. A very resonable tripel, which is worth repeating.

3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
DATE TASTED: November 23, 2013... GLASSWARE: Affligem chalice... OCCASION: a Game of Thrones reading evening... APPEARANCE: pours a slightly copper, malty golden body; lively effervescence; thick,, foamy two-finger white head that keeps its resilience; lacing is formidable... AROMA: bouquet is light, hoppy, floral with light citrus--mostly peach--and apple as well--quite an air to it!... PALATE: full-bodied; immediately warming at the throat; active and anxious in the teeth--clearly not disguising its intentions...TASTE: grape accents early grant a surprising start; smooth, mellow hops make for a surprisingly casual finish; coriander and some nameless funk round out the flavor...OVERALL: a bright, uplifting strength to this beer lends spirit to the religious overtones of the label; situated among the other beers of this mix pack, the "Best of Belgium" proclamation holds some substance--not the best tripel I’ve tasted, but more than holds its own...

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Colour: gold straw, with a big, fizzy head.
Nose: spicy, citrus and other acidic fruits. Hints of leather.
Flavours: orange/lemon peel, vanilla, more herbs and spices. Highly carbonised.
Finish: medium, alcoholic. Dry and spiced.
Verdict: medium tripel. Not bad but nothing special. In my opinion it tries too much to emulate Westmalle tripel (which IS one of the greats)
