UPDATED: JUN 13, 2013 Goudkleurig, mistig bier met stevige, witte schuimkraag. Aroma is mouten, fruitig, alcohol, gist, schors. Smaak begint licht zoet, eindigt meer droog. Medium tot behoorlijk bitter. Medium tot volle body, medium co2. Goede tripel!

Quite bitter and 9° makes me feel uncomfortable. Cost for me is too much. Good for drinking except all another nibbles.

Quite dark for a triple; almost orange with a strong white head and lacing. Medium body. Big spicy, fruity, tripel aroma. In the mouth: citrus, hint of ginger, mild spice. Creamy finish.

Es una cerveza fuerte, con un montón de sabores (malta, caramelo y lúpulos) Tiene un color naranja tirando a oscuro, turbia y con una espuma muy compacta. Tiene un sabor amargo y afinado una malta con mucho cuerpo. Una cerveza para probar, tiene una segunda fermentación en botella.

Robv (12) - Westerlo, BELGIUM - SEP 20, 2014
A tender , yet intense aroma. An extraordinary taste sensation, bitter from the hops with a small amount of sweetness on the tongue. In one sentence: ’A taste sensation, from the beginning till the end!’

Blond to orange color, big white head. Aroma of belgian yeast, banana, apricot, orange, alcohol. Taste is bitter with a light sourness, lively carbonation. Notes of ripe banana, and apricot, bitter and alcoholic finish. A very good triple!

Zymurgeist2 (1030) - Redwood City, California, USA - SEP 19, 2014
On draft at a cafe by the windmill on the outskirts of Brugge. Beautiful hazy gold with a massively full white head that billows. Aroma is musty and cracker malt. Taste is pleasant with Belgian yeast dominating and a bone dry finish.

Bottle, 11.2 oz. Nose is very sweet, lemony citric pale malt in small measure with medium vanilla and very strong honey. Lightly spicy. Pours hazy golden, lacing with a huuge rocky beige head, careful going there. Taste is much the same, spicy golden malt with light alcohol warmth, big honey, fullish body with a small hole in the center. More than just a serviceable tripel.
