Antonio369 (47) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - FEB 6, 2016
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.

Deze tripel is mij net iets te bitter, waardoor het niet kan tippen aan de tripels van onder andere Chimay, Westmalle en met name Tripel Karmeliet. Desalniettemin een lekker bier.

Hazy golden color. Has a strong yeasty aroma, lots of fruitiness, some apples and vanilla. Sweet candy smell from the hops, light caramel and biscuit. Very little hop aroma. Starts sweet and finishes minerally, almost metallic. Not as dry as most tripels. Has a present acidity. Some spicy phenols. Has a noticeable, but not overbearing hop bitterness. This lacks a bit of complexity for the style, but it very drinkable for 9%. Good beer.

MaBeer1972 (1583) - Taunton, Massachusetts, USA - JAN 24, 2016
Bottle from Julio’s. Pours out a light orange-golden color. Frothy off-white head. Great yeast profile with this one. Herbal-spice-fruit notes. Dry finish. A very tasty triple.

The_Mango_Kid (36) - BELGIUM - JAN 24, 2016
Lekker aroma, niet uitgesproken tripel, maar complex genoeg om uitdagend te zijn, frisse geur. Uitzicht is lichtblond en helder met een fijnschuimende kraag. De smaak is redelijk bitter, maar toch niet wrang, heel licht voor een tripelbier (qua afdronk), eerder verfrissend. Mondgevoel is licht bruisend. Een zeer aangename tripel die mijn inziens beter zal doen in warme maanden dan de winter.

metalspice (437) - Jevnaker, NORWAY - JAN 22, 2016
Klart ravfarget med lavt, hvitt skum. Fruktig og floral duft med hint av sure fersken og høy. Smaken starter med de florale tonene som også kommer igjen i ettersmaken. Også noe fruktighet sammen med de klare gjæraktige tonene. En lett beskhet i ettersmaken ødelegger noe av helhetsinntrykket.

ectuohy27 (869) - ESTONIA - JAN 18, 2016
Very good tripel, of course. Slightly too hoppy for me (hedonism scale), though the yeasty and layered malt and alcohol notes are all quite present and, were it not seemingly around 50 IBUs, would surely have pushed it over the 4-point mark

Kita (1671) - Koper, SLOVENIA - JAN 14, 2016
Bottle, 0.33l. Pours cloudy amber orange color with thin creamy off-white head, good lacing, some yeast residue and sparkling appearance. Aroma of wheat, spices, yeast and ripe fruits. Taste starts with sweet bready malt and spices, follows yeasty sour with dark fruits, warming alcoholic mouth feel and moderate bitter finish. Medium to full body, thick texture and lively natural carbonation in palate. Surprisingly bitter Tripel...
