3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Poured from a 0.75 litre bottle into trappist glass. Translucent gold copper with a slight head that dissipates at a moderate pace. Some sedimentation present. Nose is sweet, candied and a hint of alcohol. Taste is more of the same, can taste the caramel, slightly bitter and a lingering aftertaste. Not too shabby.
Edited for bottle size.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
750 ml bottle into chalice, best before 12/4/2015. Pours lightly hazy/cloudy deep gold color with a 1 finger dense white head with good retention, that reduces to a thin lacing cap that lingers. Light spotty soapy lacing clings around the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of big peach, pear, orange, apricot, apple, light banana, clove, pepper, candi sugar, bread, herbal, floral, and yeast earthiness. Damn nice aromas with good balance and complexity of fruity/earthy yeast, earthy hops, and moderate pale malt sweetness; with good strength. Taste of big peach, pear, orange, apricot, apple, light banana, clove, pepper, candi sugar, bread, herbal, floral, and yeast earthiness. Fair amount of earthy yeast spice on the finish; with lingering notes of peach, pear, orange, apricot, apple, light banana, clove, pepper, candi sugar, herbal, floral, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Fantastic complexity of fruity/spicy yeast flavors, earthy hops, and moderate pale malt sweetness; with a great malt/yeast flavor balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth and fairly crisp mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is well hidden with only a slight warming present after the finish. Overall this is an awesome tripel style. Great complexity of fruity/spicy yeast ester flavors with moderate pale malt sweetness; and very smooth to sip on for the ABV. A highly enjoyable offering.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle shared by Jeff at Ale Alpharetta. Pours a slightly hazy yellow, with a medium, off-white head. The aroma is sweet oranges, biscuit dough, cloves, oats, and caramel. The flavor is yeasty sweetness, with some hop character, but practically no bitterness. Medium body, creamy, and sticky. Overall, this is a very nice, yeasty, citrusy beer. Straightforward, but in a good way. This is a delicious, approachable, and well made beer.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
33 cl, flaske, 9,0 % ABV, gave fra Michele og Gert - tak! 12. juni 2014.
Ravfarvet belgisk Tripel med stor flot offwhite-farvet skumtop, 5-6 cm tyk.
Aromaen er let citrus og let banan. Endnu dybere er der lidt appelsin i næsen.
Dejlig smag med sødme og bitterhed i godt respektabelt parløb. Smagsbilledet er mest præget af bitterheden, men halvt inde rammer sødmen elegant. Lang krydret eftersmag og moderat alkoholvarme.
Kuldioxid indholdet passer fint til øltypen og ligger på et medium niveau.
Dejlig lidt mere krydret Tripel IMO fra De Halve Maan, som holder niveau i forvejen.

One of the better Belgian tripels. Body of grainy malt and some fruits, but it also has a pleasent dryness in the taste.

Complex taste. Balanced and full body. A little bit bread and caramel malt at the smell and taste.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from de Bierschuur in Poppel. The beer has a yellow golden color and a large white head with a lot of bubbles. In the aroma tones of hops, herbs and some oranges. For a tripel a well drinkable beer which is rather sweet than bitter. The finish is pretty short with a nice little sourness and bitterness.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Hazy amber color with a thick medium white head. Nose is a little spicy and malty. The taste is sour and quite bitter. It is complex and has a long powerfull aftertaste. Strong taste of alcohol. This triple is not much of an easy drinker.
