Delft 7-11-2015 Zeer degelijke tripel! Goudoranje kleur en veel schuim. Heeft een hele volle smaak en is vrij bitter. Smaakt zoet naar sinaasappel. Goede tripel al zijn er veel betere.

tfredvik (1555) - Oslo, NORWAY - NOV 20, 2015
Pours a slightly hazy deep golden body, with an amber hue. The head is very large, creamy, dense, off-white and very long-lived. My trappist chalice ensures that the head never shrinks beyond a nice layer. Strong aroma of Belgian yeast, spices, fruits, pale malts and wet hay. Complex and strong flavour of Belgian yeast, spices, flowers, pale malts and fitting alcohol. Also hints of overripe banana. Light to moderate sweet taste with a light bitter and long-lasting finish. Mid-bodied, dry and with a fairly lively carbonation. A very nice one, with an exciting complexity.
[33 cl bottle, enjoyed 20 months before BB date, from Vinmonopolet Online]

Mooie moutige tripel, in de aroma is de mout volop aanwezig, maar in de smaak is de moutsmaak mooi in harmonie met de kruidigheid en de lichte citrussmaak. Heerlijk!

Lilja (2343) - Malmö, SWEDEN - NOV 13, 2015
Flaska, lagrat något år. Smak och doft av jäst, torkad ljus frukt, päron, gröna vindruvor, sött äppelmos med toner av örter och honung. Rund och len, lagom sötma, fina välbalanserade smaker. Fin beska! Mycket gott!

LLaurin (163) - Motala, SWEDEN - NOV 8, 2015
Bottle from Belgolåda Sweden. Pours with a firm off white head and a inviting amber colour. The first cold taste is shy but still with some martineau. Precense of yeast and light hops. With rising temperature the tastes come awake. Tropic fruits, banana and some peach. Wins very much at 12 / 15 degrees.
