Bottle, BBE 10/2014. Pours clear copper in color with fluffy white head. Malty sweet with some hint of spices and barf. Flavor has some grains, straw and hints of spices as well. Some grassy hopes too is found. Pretty sweet in aftertaste. Some darker fruits as well.

UPDATED: JUL 3, 2013 Love this triple. Have had it both at the Straffe Hendrink Brewery (De Halve Maan) in Brugges on tap and in the bottle. A lovely, drinkable triple. Higher alcohol but the finish is not alcoholic. Smooth on the palate with a terrific aroma and taste.

jmgreenuk (5714) - Kuala Lumpur, MALAYSIA - JAN 9, 2013
Bottle at Huppel the Pub, Den Haag. Poured a cloudy reddish amber with a thick long-lasting white head. The aroma is fresh and yeasty. The flavour is bitter, yeasty and with some alcohol burn in the palate giving a nice lingering bitterness. A great Tripel, but I’m not a fan of the style.

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 (2493) - 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.

A subtle lemon spice and banana drink. Tasty and a little pungent. Some wild yeast flavor.

Tonkun (1113) - New Jersey, USA - DEC 2, 2012
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.
