On tap at bangers and lace. Aroma is booze and yeast. Flavor is strong alcohol, light grain and yeast. Little in the way of spice or sweetness that you would expect from a beer like this. Very disappointing relatively flavorless beer.

Stevig maar helder. Niet heel fris en vrij zoet. Heldere kleur. Zachte smaak. Niet scherp. Banaan?

Really nice triple, with lots of nutty flavors and some carbonation. I had the 75cl version.

Lekker trippel biertje met een volle smaak, licht fruitig, maar toch krachtig en met 9 procent een aardig alcoholpercentage. Smaakt goed.

Sdaniel90 (463) - Mexico City, MEXICO - FEB 7, 2015
Bottle, 33cl. Sparkling amber/orange with a frothy, crispy offwhite head. Grainy aroma with hints of doughy yeasts, pear and other grassy notes. Medium to robust bodied with moderate carbonation. Dry and astringent. Low sweetness with a considerable herbal bitterness. Finish is dry and hoppy, perhaps slightly fizzy. Alcohol well masked. Complex and with great character. Very enjoyable.

Bottle from Beergusto web shop. Unclear orange golden color with huge white head. Biscuity malt, candies with herbal hops in aroma. Sweet buscuity malty taste with candy, Belgian yeast, bitter hops. Enjoyable.

Robe ambrée. Nez très fruité sur la pomme, la poire, une belle note de malt et de houblon. Bouche à l’attaque épicée, de la rondeur, un coté moelleux tout en restant droit et sec avec une longue amertume en finale.

Light amber / orange hazy with rich off-white, bit creamy head. Sour - bitter taste with tuch of sweet and citrus (orange) notes, which satys also in the bitter aftertaste.

Not my favorite tripel. Appearance is dominated by a big frothy head which seemingly never goes away. Smell is not hoppy at all and is dominated by what i think is coriander. Taste is not very full and balanced and a bit bitter. Palate is a but watery for me and not creamy. Overall its an ok ale, but clearly not the best in the class as its too simple and not complete enough in taste or feel.

This one’s on the boozy side of the style. Pours hazy orange with lively initial head and not much lacing. Some light coriander. Soft carbonation. Light bitter finish with some sweetness, most of the aftertaste comes from the booze. Bottle.
