3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cloudy orange brown with a nice two-finger head, little retention and very nice lace. Nice spicy hops aromas with a backbone of cereal and caramel malt. Flavor follows, a touch more intense, with a pleasant bit of tartness. Medium to full body, active carbonation, warming alcohol, and a malt sweetness in the finish.

4.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
The 11.2 bottle poured a thick lively head that settled quickly lacing the tulip glass. Clean floral aroma of herbs and yeast. Taste was very good with nice body, slightly sweet on the front palate but overall a great mouthfeel. Finishes with a lingering fresh bread and buttery taste.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Although I usually am not a big fan of the triples, I have to admit this beer is drinkable for us. The ABV isn’t too apparent, but it will hit you. The beer is right on style, really enjoyable triple. It pours a nice amber color with a dense, foamy head that it holds throughout the experience. The fruit can be a distinct taste, but its there. Has a nice finish. I think this beer is enjoyable for triple and non-triple lovers.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
This triple from Bruges has some distinct qualities that make it stand out from your ordinary triple style. In addition to the usual citric and coriander notes that I find run thru most BT’s there are some malty and Hoppy notes, this is due to the addition of more roasted malts than most regular triples. Self described as an Amber triple.

Bottle 33cl. A clear golden-amber beer with good head and lacing. Nose is lemony. Aroma is dry, lemony, very hopy on peppery and grassy side. Body is medium to high complex with honey hints, very bitter. A good triple beer.

Pours a nice vibrant reddish orange, with a slightly off-white head. great retention and outstanding lacing. nice aromas of candi sugar, light hints of clove and a solid malt base, which gives me a baked apple aroma. Tastes outstanding. Almost like a tripel and a belgian amber blended. Candi sugar,clove, medium sweetness, lively, solid Brugges beer.

Dark yellow colour. Flavour is fresh, a little sweet and sour. Has a pleasant, full, grainy flavour but aftertaste is a bit soapy.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Faint spice notes on the aroma. Poured from a tap. A tap. Has that unexplainable and indescribable triple taste without being particularly memorable. Not a big fan of this one.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a deep honey-gold with some sediment. Clean malty & fruity aroma. Taste is rich and malty, yet drinkable. Fruity, caramelly...some yeast and alcohol. Overall, I like this very much...one of the best tripels I’ve tasted to date.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
11.2 oz bottle.
It is one of the most attractive tripels in the glass. It is an amber/honey/golden/orange with a foamy white head. It is crystal clear and has some noticeable carbonation bubbles.
The smell is subtle but nice. Some fruitiness and some grain. There is also a sweet honey note and some spice.
The taste is also quite subtle. It has a nice fruitiness, some sweetness, and a hint of bitterness. There is a slight bit of character form the malts, but not an overbearing amount. The alcohol is there, but pretty well hidden.
A pretty good tripel.
