Golden clear bodied and nice bubbly white head. Sweet aroma, fresh fruits with apricots and fresh figs. Belgian yeast, but quite clean. Taste is heavy on sweetness and alcohol, with just enough classic hops. Strangely it works, but drinking a couple can kill you, I think... Solid brew but not for the faint hearted. (At Pothuis Utrecht)

wimpyjoe (4339) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - NOV 19, 2014
Draught @ het Hof van Rembrandt, Brugge. Golden-amber with a thin head. Very strong tasting, but with a decent blond aroma and taste for its macro distribution and its style.

chromeotaphor (44) - NETHERLANDS - NOV 13, 2014
Fris hoppig aroma, mistig blond van kleur en troebel. Flinke schuimkraag die lang blijft. Stevig sprankelend in de mond, komt zacht binnen met een korte pittige kruidige nasmaak die soepel weg trekt. Aangename tripel.

Shared with wim at bierfestival merksplas 2014. Hazy goldblond colored beer with large white diminishing white head and no carbonation visible. Hopped herby aroma. Full sparkling palate. Finish is bitter spicy.

Fine foam and very rich taste with nice balance between sharp spices and bitter finish. Stands out against other tripels, making it a beer you want to try again.
