330 ml bottle dated 2014 into a Belgian snifter. Full pour but some sediment left stuck to the bottom of the bottle. Pours hazy, amber-orange in color with a durable off-white head Spots and streaks of foamy lacing cling to the glass, Aroma: despite an aversion to Brett, which is evident here, the highly complex aroma is modestly attractive. This is owing largely to a pronounced citrus component of lemon and orange, as well as hints of soft ripe fruits including pineapple, pear, apple and melon. White pepper, yeast and straw too. Lightly funky, Flavor: complex, and follows the aroma, but with a tad more funky Brett. Feel: medium body with very lively carbonation. Alcohol is very well hidden with only a slight warmth in the finish and aftertaste. Overall: a lightly funky and very complex Belgian tripel.

tbonde (303) - DENMARK - AUG 7, 2016
2016 - 33 cl bottle@home in Karmeliet glass@approx 12 degrees c (a little too warm) Pours beautiful golden amber with small white head with short retention and some lacing. Slightly sour, brett aroma with a little malt coming through. Taste dominated by brett, caramel malt and alcohol. Somewhat thin on the palate yet warming and heavy on the alcohol. Aftertaste long with caramel, brett, rubber and again too much prescense of alcohol for my taste. I may try to keep one for a few years to see how it develops but as a young example, it is not by a long shot my favourite Abbey Tripel nor De Halve Man brew.
