Bottle from small grocery store in Bruges. Has a perfect white head, paired with a warm yellow, orange color. Yeasty, spicy aromas, floral notes, herbs, warm pleasant smell. Both color and aroma match perfectly well. Intense taste of yeast, which is big in this beer, but still goes along with a lot of spices, they add nice complexity. There is also hop, which adds a refreshing ending. Sweetness comes along with a pleasant pepperiness, while the high carbonation enhances the refreshing character. Nonetheless, the end is very smooth, with a dry mouthfeel. The bitterness in the end rounds up the very smooth overall taste of this beer, in which a spicy sweetness with a nice depth plays the mayor role. Very nice Tripel.

Sten (731) - Westerlo, BELGIUM - DEC 30, 2013
Dark golden coloured beer with a small but stable white head. Fresh fruity, yeasty and hoppy aroma. Flavour is fruity, very smooth, a bit sweet and a little bit of a bitter aftertaste. (Bottle 33cl)

Great beer! Sweet and sour aftertaste which is great! It’s quite heavy for a tripel, but I like it!

jamestulloch (3287) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - DEC 26, 2013
Bottle, Christmas gift from Tom. Hazy golden body with a thick white head. Lively carbonation. Excellent lacing. Aroma of salt, pear, white pepper and yeast. Flavour if hay, salt, caramel and slightly browned apple. Full body with a creamy mouthfeel. Soft carbonation. A well rounded Tripel that, for me, is a bit shy on the sharp, citrusy flavours. Reminds me of my honeymoon in Bruges seven months ago.

UPDATED: MAR 9, 2015 Pours a hazy orange with a big white head. Arome of malts, dried fruits, yeast, some floral notes and spice. Noticeable carbonation. Nice Tripel, I shall definitely pay a visit to De Halve Maan when I am in Brugge again.
