This beer starts with a nice aroma of banana, peach, and clove. It pours a clear amber, with visible carbonation, and a full white head that leaves good sticky lacing on the glass. There’s quite a bit of sugar in this beer, as it has a light sweet flavor, with the alcohol amazingly hidden. The palate has a bit of slickness to it, with a clean finish. This is an amazingly drinkable tripel, and I’ll be picking up more of this.

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

arminjewell (7902) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - APR 17, 2015
Pour on tap at Falling Rock, slightly hazy orange pour with white head, aroma brought sweet vanilla, orange, candied fruits into a bit of bread, yeasty, and doughy notes, some slight spice into a hint of earthy grass. Taste was a mix of sweet orange, vanilla, white fruit, some slight clove into a bit of biscuit, dough, yeast, finishing fairly sweet.

rdixon77 (1365) - Georgia, USA - APR 14, 2015
Old rating. Dark gold. Peppery, floral hops. Fruity, malty, and boozy...as a good tripel often is. Somewhat full and creamy body. Nice.

Dark reddish golden colour with creamy head. Hoppy aroma with notes of fruits, spicies, some herbs. The flavour is similar, with well balanced hoppiness and bitterness. Alcohol is evident, but discrete.

Redelijk veel smaak, honig rokerig achtig biertje. De naam zegt het al, best een straf biertje ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Reconqvista (198) - Madrid, SPAIN - MAR 28, 2015
Orange color with a white frothy and huge white lasting head. Aroma is sweet malt, alcohol and yeast. Flavor is sweet with some bitterness and a slight sourness. Body is thick, oily and carbonation is very high.

MiP (13999) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - MAR 27, 2015
Bottle, 9%. Faint spicy hop aroma, refreshing but not very powerful. Cloudy dark golden colour. Big stable white head. The flavour is peppery, almost alcoholic with a mild, creamy sort of floral hoppiness. Good cleansing bitterness. Flavourful and well-balanced.
