Poured into Trappist glass a orange amber with huge white head and plenty of lace. Aroma is banana, brett, spice. Taste is banana, spice with a small alcohol note and a very small sour note in the finish. Earthy Brett follows through the finish. Mouthfeel is creamy. Well done.

Pours a dark golden yellow with a fluffy head. Aromas of funk and spice. Bitter with a touch of sweetness, brettish and peppery. I’m a sucker for any label that says "wild".

MelvinKalksma (202) - UTRECHT, NETHERLANDS - OCT 7, 2015
Aroma: Malt, caramel, sweet fruit, grass, citrus, floral, cherry, melon, peach, orange. Appearance: Golden/amber beer with median carbonation and thus a steady white head. Taste/Palate: Sweet thanks to all the fruit and slightly dry/bitter.

5000 (6600) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - OCT 4, 2015
Bottle:   Golden, moderate to large foamy white head, fairly nice lacing.   Fruity nose, bright, a bit of peach or apricot it seems.   Odd for an Abbey Tripel.   Pastel like sweetness.   Light, bright, fruity, and sweet.   Moderate body and mouthfeel.   Finishes bright, not heavy, fruity, bubbley, with a pastel candy like sweetness.   Didnt expect this at all from this one.   Different, but enjoyable.

suurjuust (1956) - ESTONIA - OCT 4, 2015
Slightly hazy orange amber beer, big fluffy white head. Nose is malt and booze notes with mild funk and yeast notes. Flavor is fruity, malty, boozy, some caramel sweetness in there. Finish has a fair amount of hops with brett funk. Pretty lively carbonation. Different, but not too different, the brett is not the flavor-focus.

Ruikt heel lekker fruitig en ziet er mooi uit. Smaak is ietwat minder en je proeft te veel alcohol. Verder licht bitter in de mond, droog in de nasmaak. Net iets beter dan de gewone Straffe Hendrik Tripel.

mensch (287) - Loveland, Colorado, USA - SEP 30, 2015
2014 - on sale, score! Almost impenetrable mountain of white foam. Fruity, yeasty & earthy aroma. Very light looking, not so on the palate. Medium bodied, but spritzy with lots of carbonation. Full flavored - juicy malts and funky Brett. Funk with little sourness, very different. Beautiful! I’ll have to try it at the brewery!!

elbernays (955) - Dublin, IRELAND - SEP 26, 2015
Bottle from Blackrock cellar. Pours clearish golden. Sour, fruit, rose, bubblegum notes. Flavour is sweet bread malt immediately arrested by a sour lemon dry flowery finish. Some fruit but overall a balanced beer. Interesting

guzgorog (511) - FRANCE - SEP 24, 2015
Ambrée pale et limpide, belle et abondante mousse blanche de bonne tenue. Le nez est malté et caramel, des notes de pommes vertes. En bouche, biscuit et caramel disparaissent rapidement au profil de son caractère "wild" avec des notes acides de pommes vertes et de cidre, la levure avec des arômes de banane est présente tout au long de la dégustation. L’acidité et l’amertume restent longtemps en bouche, le corps est rond, la carbo excellente, l’alcool reste discret malgré le titrage important. La présence de bretts donne un caractère original et interessant à cette bonne triple.

Christian (11902) - Odense, DENMARK - SEP 14, 2015
2015 bottle at the brewery. Golden with a lasting white head. Fruity tripel aroma with funky notes of leather and medicine. Sweetish fruity and funky flavour. Would have been better with more time for the Brett to work
