3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
(Bottle) hazy amber with huge dense white head. Complex aroma: peppery spice over malt, stone fruit and maybe a hint of funkiness. Lovely palate with medium body and carbonation which is both lively and imparts a creamy mouth-filling experience. Great taste, although quite straightforward. It starts off slightly sweetly malty and develops strong spicy notes that in turn develop into good bitterness for a long finish. A very pleasant, and somewhat different, strong Belgian beer.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
This is a wonderful beer that impresses me every time I drink it. It is true that it does not have the funkiness of the Karmeleit, but it does bring quite a few twists and turns to the table. When I first tried it I thought I had opened a quad instead, but it grew on me as I continued my glass and had won me over by its conclusion. While this is not a textbook example of the style it certainly has its charms and should be picked up instead of drinking the same old tripel over and over.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Unclear light amber colour with steady creamy head and medium to smooth body. Nose of ripe hops and Belgian yeast. Taste of spicy, yet dull hops, light barley, grass, lemon fruits, hay and sweet blood oranges. Flowery and fruity hints. Enjoyed it a lot, but there are many other Abbey Tripels I enjoyed more.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Thick, very heavy with a huge head. Lots of alc in the background mixed in the aroma with vanilla, ripe fruits and caramel. Gets better with a rising temperature. Came as a stranger and stayed as a friend. Typical belgian triple with lot of secret sweetness. Nice.
