Pours a clear deep honey color with a big foamy cream head. Very lively champagne bubbles keep the head supported. Aroma is light - doughy yeast and a bit floral but not very strong. Taste is immediately sweet - honey, ripe apples, plums, bananas foster - a hint of jasmine maybe. Not bitter at all the finish remains sweet with a touch of vanilla. The taste is much more powerful and complex than the aroma would suggest. Mouthfeel is smooth. This is an absolutely excellent brew and thoroughly exceeded my expectations!

Flaska från Belgoklubben. Klar bärnstenfärgad med generös, luftig skumkrona. Söt doft av torkade aprikoser och belgojäst. Medelfyllig kropp med frisk kolsyra som smeker munlädret. Kryddig smak av belgojäst, torkade aprikoser, peppar och skumbanan. Lätt bitter och torr avslutning.

Roodbruin bier met veel stevig schuim. Smaak is krachtig bitter hoppig, heel licht zoet met iets van citrus en ananas, abrikoos.

Interesante versión del estilo tripel. Cítricos, especias y cereal en nariz, con un cuerpo poderoso y un final de trago casi picante.

A bright golden color with a white head. A faint citrus and spice aroma. The flavor is somewhat tart with some lemons, oranges, and grassy notes. A bit of sweetness in the finish. Overall nice one.

UPDATED: MAR 17, 2016 Una tripel muy buena, pero para mi gusto no es la mejor. Tiene un buen sabor y bastante cuerpo.

dynamiteninja (1808) - Norfolk, ENGLAND - FEB 18, 2016
Bottle. Cloudy gold body. White head that quickly dissipates. Wheat, cloves, red fruit, bread, orange peel. Sweet with some bitterness. Dry finish. Well carbonated. Good, a more contemporary interpretation of the Abbey Tripel style.

33cl bottle, served in trappist chalice. Poured a cloudy orange with a two finger white head that disappeared pretty quickly. Aromas of caramel, vanilla, banana, grapefruit. Taste: Pretty much a continuation of the aromas. Alcohol clearly present there. Spicy, fruity and sweet on the tongue and nice grassy, bitter, dry hop in the finish. Medium body. Overall a very nice tripel.
