Nice, unclear, unfiltered beer with a honey-like color. Sweet-fruity aroma with a touch of alcohol. It tastes sweet in the beginning, but this quickly goes on in a slightly bitter aftertaste. Mooi, ongefilterd honingkleurig bier. Ook hier in het aroma het zoet-fruitige met de toets van alcohol. De smaak is in het begin even zoet, maar dit gaat snel over in een heel lichtbittere nasmaak.

Deep gold pour. Aroma is bananas, cherries, nuts, raisins, yeast and alcohol. Delicious flavor of raisins, prunes, and alcohol.. Very sweet with a bit of a sour finish. Yummm.

My favorite style, and this one does not disappoint. Pours dark, hazy golden/orange with adequate silky head. Aroma of citrus and apricots, butterscotch, caramel. Mouthfeel is buttery and silky smooth. Taste is butter, smooth malt, tangy hops. A sipper for sure, to enjoy its full body and intricate character.

Pours a dark golden with a heavy, white one finger head. Yeasty nose, nice carbonation, light fruity notes and not too sweet. Didn't notice much of an alcohol burn. Excellent version of the style. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Head: white, medium, frothy. Colour: amber and clear. Aroma: fruity in a refreshing way (a minty perhaps?), not as dry as other tripels. Taste: again some refreshing sweetness, like a minty lollipop, a bit of bitterness and just a drop of sour bite in the finish. Maybe some alcohol too. Not too much yeast and phenolics detected. Apart from the colour, it is very similar to Westmalle. I actually copied the comments. :)

Bottle. Dark golden with dense white head. Aroma sweet malts, apples. Taste sweet malty, a little alcohol burn, sugar, a little low in carbonation. A great example of a difficult style that often tends to be cloying,

Yeasty nose. Pale head. Clear golden color. Slightly sweet fruity and hoppy taste with some lemon notes. Average hops. Adding sediment brought haziness.
