Excellent example of Belgian beer. You can definitely taste the fruity alcohol. It pours nicely and doesn't overpower. Good stuff.

Citrus, spice, herbal and hop aroma. Pours hazy gold with plenty of carbonation and I soft white head that dissipates slowly. Metallic, yeast, molasses, hardcandy, spice, hops, brown sugar, Orange, vanilla and cinnamon spice flavors that leave a nice after burn and a smooth silky feel. This is a great beer with everything you expect from a good tripel. I bought this for $6 (a steal) and I find it comparable to others in the price range of $15, $20 or even $25. Going back and buying all of them.

Sweet fruit in aroma, pinch of spices. Sweet with light alcohol bitterness. Very light sourness in aftertaste. Overall it is quite simple for tripel.

Bottle. Orange golden color. Very fruity, robust smell. Carrot, hint of hairspray, oil from orange peel (quite pungent, this one dominates), soap. Fruitiness completely reveals itself in the taste: pear, orange, tangerine, hint of marzipan, hint of exotic fruit (lychee, ananas). Sour high always comes first though, so it hits the palate hard. Aftertaste is light bitter with hint of fruit. Ok.

Not bad. Pours a hazy yellow-amber with a decent white head. Aromas of yeast and grain with some malt. Quite spicy in taste with a degree of banana and yeast. Rather hoppy finish, somewhat oily towards the very end.

Bottle, hazy golden with a large, white head. Spicy, slightly yeasty aroma with metallic notes. Spicy and vinous flavour with notes of marcipan.

Not worth the cost. But a cool bottlecap. Aroma is butter and toffee. Taste is carmel and sweet sugars. Malt forward and syrup sweetness forward. light apple flavor also but very subtle. Fast fading head and good mouthfeel.

drdisque (632) - Illinois, USA - FEB 14, 2015
On tap at bangers and lace. Aroma is booze and yeast. Flavor is strong alcohol, light grain and yeast. Little in the way of spice or sweetness that you would expect from a beer like this. Very disappointing relatively flavorless beer.

Stevig maar helder. Niet heel fris en vrij zoet. Heldere kleur. Zachte smaak. Niet scherp. Banaan?
