Gehad van vat. Smaak is zoet met een heel zacht bittertje en enigszins alcoholisch. In mijn herinnering is hij op fles wat pittiger en daardoor beter. Goede doordrinker, mss ietsjes limonaderig.

This isn’t the best Tripel I’ve had but certainly one of the better ones. The aroma is kind of weak and consists of honey, light hops and some fruit. Pours a beautiful amber amber color with a tight white head. Flavors of honey, pear, apricot, caramel and maybe some spices. Highly carbonated with a dry finish.

Bottle at home. Clear copper pour with an off-white head and visible carbonation. Honey, caramel, Belgian yeast, spices, some floral notes. High carbonation, medium body and a spicy sweet aftertaste.

jjsint (2266) - Cambridge, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - MAY 21, 2016
Bottle from the Wellington Arms, Bedford. Honey gold with a small ring of white head and reasonable carbonation. Intensity of candy sugary yeast, buttered toast, and uncooked dough. Sweet, yeasty sugary taste with a surprisingly dry aftertaste. Shortbread in the finish. Incredible.

33cl bottle. Apperance:Golden clear body and nice bubbly white head. Aroma, Fruity sweetness of apricots and fresh figs. Belgian yeast, Taste: above moderate sweet and alcohol, but decntly balanced out with some fruityness and some classic hops. Bit of spicey yeast. Good balance on complexity and esayness, which makes it dangerous. slightly above average body, slightly below average carbonation.
