330ml bottle & keg at the brewery. Pours gold with large white head. Aroma is typically fruity tripel esters. Taste is well-balanced and full-flavoured for the style. Very enjoyable and hard to fault.

Shared a bottle with Posey at Alice’s birthday party. Pours golden and clear with three fingers of foamy persistent white head. Aroma is yeasty and floral with slight malt. Flavor follows. Clean and dry. Really nice beer.

whiskeyrocks (70) - Lindenhurst, Illinois, USA - APR 26, 2015
New to trips... But this was nice and smooth and light. Not overly sweet or malty. Pours with a thick head that stayed on the beer for ten mins locking in all that flavor. Didn’t have that strong alcohol flavor you can get with some trips or beers with 9% alch. Overall very tasty and very refreshingq

Hallstein (243) - Skogn, NORWAY - APR 22, 2015
Pours a light amber coloration. Lots of nice carbonation fizzing up the sides of the glass. Aroma is yeasty, fruity, slightly musky. The flavor is kinda simple, but it works. Grains, yeast, spicyness and a slight herbal hop finish. This is a nice tripel. Well made and to style, but lacks complexity.

Some sweetness to begin with, but a nice yeasty Tripel flavour in the end. Nice hazel pour. Aftertaste is sweet again.
