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.

330ml bottle from Archive Beer Boutique 280913. Big and boozy, this beer ticks all of the boxes, sweet, fruity, malty.

PapaVillum (424) - Valby, DENMARK - JUN 12, 2014
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.

MarcoDL (2137) - NETHERLANDS - JUN 12, 2014
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.

bonkiedeaap (247) - Leerdam, NETHERLANDS - JUN 9, 2014
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.

Mrenaerts (8) - BELGIUM - JUN 7, 2014 does not count
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.

venom666 (331) - Alicante, SPAIN - JUN 2, 2014
Golden amber color, with a creamy, persistent white foam. Aroma of citrus like lemon and orange, alcohol is noticeable but perfectly integrated. Sweet taste with citrus and a pleasant hop bitterness and a roasted malt ending.

Hazy dark golden, sudsy white head. Aroma has malt and straw. Flavour is similar, fruity and slightly yeasty. Soft carb and medium bitter finish. Good tripel.

Légèrement ambrée et légèrement trouble. Un nez de céréales, des notes de banane et de caramel. Les bulles sont assez présentes. Légèrement amère. Un ensemble qui se tient bien…
