Bouteille de 33cl. Couleur cuivrée, mousse assez abondante et de tenue correcte. Caractčre malté bien trempé avec des notes de caramels et de réglisse. Carbonnation moyenne-haute. Un peu dans l’esprit d’une leffe 9 mais plus subtile avec un alcool bien mieux caché. Trouvée ŕ Vanuxeem - Ploegstaert.

I was disappointed by the aroma at first. Good surprise for the taste : Long finish with caramel and regliss. Nice head and color.

Bottle. Pours hazy and full of chunks. Foamy white head and a malty aroma with notes of clove honey, and banana (but not strongly) . Sharper taste than you’d expect from a triple, with a little less sweetness than the aroma would suggest. Palate fairly bitter for a triple, and with a bit of a strange, almost solventy flavor. In view of other reviews of this beer I almost wonder if my bottle was spoiled.

5000 (6300) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - NOV 20, 2011
Bottle:   Bright amber, strong carbonation, large fluffy white head, sticky lacing.   Yeasty nose, slight banana esters.   Seems like a German Wheat crossed with a Belgian of sorts.   Bright breadiness on the tongue, musty, yeasty, with a smidgen of that banana ester that I got on the nose.   Not bad at all, a little different.   A little airy on the tongue, smooth, body and mouthfeel are average.   Lingering yeastiness as well as this quasi banana and what is now a tropical fruit aspect.   Has a yeasty/barnish background, but this one isnt as floral or bright as other Tripels.   Seems decent enough tho, different from many others while remaining entertaining.

Thanks Armando 629! Sejtelmesen homályos, sötét narancs színe van, habja vékony, tört fehér, krémes és elég gyorsan összeesik. Illata likőrösen édeskés, aszalt gyümölcsös, fűszeres, vaníliás és enyhén érő kék sajtos, ammóniás. Aszalt sárgabarackkal kezd az íze, amihez fügelikőr, sok fűszer, hársméz, koriander, vanília, élesztő és enyhe komlós beütés is csatlakozik. Közepesen testes és szénsavas és a magasabb alkohol is végig jelen van benne, ami inkább előnyére válik és nem bántó. Utóíze fűszeres, gyümölcsös és keserédes. Ahogy melegszik, úgy nyílik kifelé, annál gazdagabb és aromásabb lesz. Nagyon finom!

0,33 l bottle,bought in Amsterdam.
Poured opalescent amber-orange with a small creamy off white head. Aroma of dried fruits, peach, raisins and coriander, fine alcoholic character, some overriped cheese, sourish spicies, vanilla. MMM! Medium bodied one, fruity tastes, more richer when the beer gets warmer. Vanilla, dried peach, coriander with a moderated hops. Little bit alcoholic but it does not hurt the palate, fine fruity aftertaste on the tongue. Well done, very good one!
