Triple de 8,5 % abv, avec fleurs de houblon, refermentée. Mon exemplaire était à un mois après sa date. Couleur jaune légèrement orangé, à la clarté nette. Bulles fines partout, en colonnes droites, peu vives. Mousse blanche qui tombe vite et fait un nappage de surface, informe. Arômes de malt clair, girofle, pointe de vinaigre, câpres. 1ère bouche souple, sur malt et houblon, avec du sirop de glucose. Arrière-bouche assez quelconque et sans complexité. 2ème au léger fruité, avec un malt faible. Arrière-bouche sans vraie personnalité. 3ème avec du malt, mais le sucre bat en brèche l’amertume. Arrière-bouche peu harmonieuse. Longueur sans progression de l’assemblage, qui reste d’un niveau très élémentaire. Jambes fines, longues. Levure aqueuse, sans nuance, très très faible. Alcool qui ne fait pas son niveau affiché, et n’aide aucunement aux saveurs. Finale banale. CONCLUSION : bière sans aucun intérêt, malheureusement pour le renard de l’étiquette, qui n’est ni rebelle ni futé ...

Bottle straight from the brewery, thanks Maxime! Very thick, frothy, dense, beaten egg white-like, thickly cobweb-lacing head over a clear, warm ’old gold’ coloured beer with a vast amount of fierce sparkling, hundreds of lively bells rising up through the beer in whole whirls of fizz - and this beautiful visual effect goes on and on. More misty with deposit, obviously. Aroma of banana, sweetbread, peach, honey, freshly cut sorrel, grass, apple cake, caramel, wet paper, pear, rhubarb, old cream cheese, cooked white cabbage but strangely not in a DMS kind of way, some stale urine and even yoghurt. Fruity onset, lots of banana, peach, pineapple and gooseberry as can be expected from a classic Belgian tripel, more sweet than sour with, unsurprisingly, a fair amount of fizzy carbonation; rounded, smooth, lightly creamy body, honeyish and caramelly malt sweetness with residual white candi sugar sweetness becoming a bit tiring in the end. Finish adds some grassy, lightly spicy hops but insufficiently bittering to counter the ongoing sweetness (even the deScription of ’late’ hop bitterness given by the brewery does not correspond with reality), as well as a splash of warming, yet non-astringent, wodka-like alcohol. The famous banana ester (isoamylacetate) is very strong in this one, and so is acetaldehyde (green apple), but these aromas are what you can expect in an ordinary Belgian tripel; what bothered me more, are the stale, almost ’old milk’-like off-flavours, yet I must admit they do not ruin the aroma entirely and they do add a kind of unexpected ’funkiness’ to the whole. Let’s say this is a happy accident: some off-flavours, but by sheer coincidence they fit in quite well and otherwise this beer is technically well executed; the inches-thick head and fierce sparkling will appeal to the average Belgian ale consumer as well. Frankly, and seen my previous experiences with this brewery, I expected a lot less from this: this is, all things considered, a very stereotypical and sweet, but rather enjoyable tripel, though still not free of errors.

Pours a clear golden blonde beer with a big fine white head. Smells hoppy, malty and has a hint of metal/oxidation. Tastes bitter sweet. Leaves a quite bitter palate. OK beer, noting special.

Small whitish head, with some lace all the same; clear metallic-orange beer. Spicy and garden herbs, vegetal. Bit gassy nose. More spices, sweet-vegetal as partly cooked carrot or parsnip, hint at human sweat. Finish has some CO² reinforced acidity, subtle and getting more dry gradually. Feels more carbonated than it looks. Slight slickness. Pleasing, not very strong tripel - or a well-hidden ABV. The bitterness is very late indeed, I’m still searching.
