Heldere gouden kleur met goede kraag. Ruikt fruitig en iets bitter. Smaakt zoetig met een iets bittere afdronk.

Douberd (2612) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - SEP 21, 2013
Bottle, 330 ml, poured into a tulip glass at home. ABV 9% Crystal clear body, thick white head, two fingers tall. Soapy in texture, with very good duration, it left thick lacing webs around the glass once it collapsed a bit and during the drinking. Aroma is fruity, yeasty. Very typical tripel aroma, plus some alcohol notes. Nice taste, also typical but a touch above average. Fruity taste with peaches, yeast, sugar, some alcohol notes and an even more fruity aftertaste with light bubblegum brushes. Medium thin body, carbonation on good levels. More than okay tripel, it seems at first like your average one, but it shines on the aftertaste and overall experience.

EddyBeer1 (926) - Brussels, BELGIUM - SEP 21, 2013
Blonde dorée voilée, effervescence moyenne-faible col fin blanc, belle dentelle sur le verre. Trop d’alcool et d’épices gâchent tout le reste: tant les malts clairs que les notes de bananes... A réessayer au cas où ma bouteille aurait été mauvaise, d’autant qu’elle n’est pas périmée!

Gary (1466) - the hood Brentford, London,, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 4, 2013
UPDATED: SEP 6, 2013 (Bottle) A pretty good Triple , man the lame ones are like something that a bumb should drink on Skid Row .. When I find a good take on a triple , like this one , my mind recalls a ’ class A triple ’ like St Feuillien .I’m not one of those who hollas Westmalle as the epitome of style, never really liked it ... Drank this from a large Leffe goblet.. Reminds me of Coors light to look at , but doesnt drink down like Coors , nah !. sPiCy ,dry and toffee’ish ..booze covered over orange zest ... but the booze ain’t in an obvious kinda sick jet fuel texture like some in this style- its slick.. A good take on a triple for sure !

TyggaBrown (420) - NORWAY - SEP 2, 2013
Pretty nice. 9%. Caramel and candy and lots of sweetness "belgian style" in both aroma and taste. Lots of character, and refreshing. A bit too carbonated, and I miss some aftertaste.

Pyrmir (3544) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - AUG 28, 2013
330 ml bottle. Slightly hazy golden with white head. Aroma with loads of bananas, plus sweet malt and alcohol. Taste is boozy, banana, esters, sweet malt with a kind of grainy finish with alcohol.

ERB92 (401) - Bergen, NORWAY - AUG 11, 2013
nice cloudy looking, but not much head, which can not be expected on a 9% beer. To sweet and a bit unbalanced. to much alcohol in the aftertaste.
