Fruity and bubble gum like aroma; almost a hint of apple cider. Taste is emblematic of a typical Belgian trippel. Finishes very smooth, deceptive for the alcohol percentage. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Vignale (2365) - Malmö, SWEDEN - DEC 29, 2012
Flaska från SB. Ljust bärnstensfärgad, småbubbligt skum som snart försvinner. Doft av marsipan, torkade päron, apelsinzest och jäst. Lätt stickig, ganska söt, fruktig med drag av körsbär, apelsinskal, torkade päron, belgisk jäst och marsipan. En liten apelsinskalsbeska. En klassisk och välgjord trippel som det inte finns något att klaga på.

MustangMarkF (219) - Coventry, West Midlands, ENGLAND - DEC 26, 2012
Bottle 375ml and on Draft in Veurne. Aroma is sweet, leathery with a hint of Begian hops. It pours a slightly cloudy medium light brown with a think white lasting head. Itchanges over the palate superbly - sweetness first of all then a slight smokiness giving way to a bitter finish. Love this beer - one of Belgiums better brews. Eithre on tap or from the bottle a lovely beer.

Bottle. Orange pour with half and inch of white head. Spice, citrus, banana, candy. Not too sweet like some other triple. Great balance of Carbonation and sweetness. Almost creamy smooth and flavorable finish.

Bottle, from H1000 beers. Poured a honey color with medium head. Aroma of belgium yeast, slight orange/lemon peel, spice, candy. Medium sweetness. Kind of dry finish. Taste of about the same as aroma. Giving me a little hearburn; oh wait, thats probably the huge Thanksgiving dinner I just ate...

Douberd (2953) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - NOV 17, 2012
330 ml brown bottle, poured into a tulip. I poured it very slowly as not to disturb the yeast on the bottom, but nevertheless, I got a huge head of four finger, off-white in colour, slighty froathy in texture. After a while half of it is gone, leaving quite a lace around the glass. The remaining half of the foam has an excellent retention. All that on top of a deep orange, copper-like coloured beer, and while tiny bubbles are finding their way to the surface. Aroma is fruity, with notes of yeast, wheat, alcohol, some orange peel maybe and spices. Taste is also fruity, mostly citrus fruits and mainly on the finish. Alcohol is notable. Bubblegum and apple notes Medium to full body, average carbonation and very dry on the palate.
