It pours a haze golden color with some floating yeast particles. The aroma is beautifully complex, mainly fruity: banana, citrus, apricot, mellow, apple, and so on. It is also very spicy. Pepper is in there absolutely. The taste follows the aroma but predominantly spicy. Belgian yeast is felt. Medium body, and carbonated as belgians. Overall it’s a very well done triple. I felt it delicated but present and with personality. I’d go for it again.

Very nice and lively Tripel. It has a nice full and fruity aroma with a good hoppy/bitter aftertaste.

Bottle as a gift, @ home. Murky amber colour, white head. Fruity with notes of grapefruit and banana. Sweet and malty, bitter finish. Good tripel.

kraddel (4490) - some beerplace, BELGIUM - MAR 4, 2015
Pours unclear yellowblonde . OK , but big bubbles white head that fades to zero in no time . Scent is sweeter than average , some yeast-notes . Taste is surprisingly bitter , but in a very sharp way . doesn’t taste hoppy, really . grainy undertone, but with a more pronounced yeast profile in top of it . Has every aspect of a tripel , so thats a good thing . Only , its not balanced . The co-operation of the different aspects doesn’t work out , making this not as nice to drink as the average tripel .

Yves (2500) - Turnhout, BELGIUM - DEC 23, 2014
Alone at home. Hazy blond colored beer with large white head and no carbonation visible. Hopped fruited aroma. Full sparkling palate. Finish is sweet fruited ending bitter spicy.

Vaiz (3740) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - DEC 16, 2014
Bottle at home. Hazy golden pour, huge foamy white head. Aroma is quite spicy, slightly fruity, a bit of artificial candy, some stophoest and a bit chemical. Flavor is quite bitter, slightly sweet malts, heavy carbonation and a bit chaotic.

Detto comunque fra di noi, non sono sinceramente un grande amante di questo birrificio, ma invece devo dire che questa tripel, mi è garbata.

Alengrin (2986) - BELGIUM - AUG 6, 2014
Triple with dense, firm, off-white foam and warm orange blonde colour with a somewhat pinkish hue, equally fuzzy because of delicate, dusty yeast particles that become big yeast clouds after pouring in the deposit. Nutty aroma with subdued fruits (orange, apricot, tomato), some vanilla, sage, leather, cognac, black pepper. Dry taste with vivid fruitiness, medium carbonated, on a caramelly maltiness, nutty and spicy tones, finishing in a peppery hop bitterishness. Moderately okay tripel but a bit redundant, in my view.

KnutAlbert (6364) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUN 6, 2014
Bottle from the brewry stadn at Zythos 14. Soft, fruity, similar to the Blondelle, but this has an extra edge of bitterness - more to my liking.

corkyrory66 (838) - BELGIUM - MAY 28, 2014
Bière triple, pas d’abbaye, mais triple, de 8,5 % abv. Couleur orangée très bizarre pour une triple. Apparence complètement voilée due à un énorme dégagement gazeux à l’ouverture. Mousse blanche crémeuse. Arômes de fleur d’oranger, réglisse vieille, bois mouillé, certains champignons aqueux. 1ère bouche de très vilaine impression sur des épices muscadées mélangées de copeaux de bois. Arrière-bouche assez acide. 2ème sur un très mauvais ensemble disgracieux. 3ème sur l’écorce de bouleau, cerfeuil monté, pointe de céleri fané. Arrière-bouche aride. La longueur ne présente aucune harmonie. La levure est aqueuse, sans vrai caractère. L’alcool ne peut redresser la barre. La finale ne change rien. CONCLUSION : bière hors sujet pour une triple, et hors goût pour une autre … En tout cas, sans équilibre en général . Si on la classe en spéciale, et en fermant les yeux, on peut éventuellement y trouver un point positif ...
