Bottle from Vinmonopolet Manglerud enjoyed at home
Orange hazy, white head. Smells of grass, baker’s yeast, malts. Taste is medium sweet, quite a sting of alcohol, spicy. Very grassy bitter tail

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
A 330ml bottle with a best before date of 10th October 2016 and poured into a Chimay goblet glass. The beer poured a clear deep golden colour with a fluffy two finger white head which lasts a long time and leaves stringy lacing. Aromas are mainly bready malts and unripe banana with hints of pear. Flavour is strong with sweet banana, clove, honey and bready malts. There was also a hint of spicyness and the booze comes through towards the end. Dry, medium bodied with good carbonation. This was quite a nice tripel especially when comparing its price to other decent tripels.

3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
330 ml bottle bought at 759 Store in Sheung Shui Centre.
Looks: Clear golden honey colour with very thin haze of yeast sediments; Two finger head and crumpety white foam which lasts for 2 minutes; Excellent sticky lacing with quite fizzy carbonation.
Aroma: Fragrant sweet malt, with refreshing strong herbs, banana, light vanilla, light caramel, wheat, molasses, bread, strong Bel yeast, thin lemon and thin grass.
Taste: Med to strong sweet malt, with banana, caramel, light wheaty tartness, light dark fruits, fairly strong alcohol, sugar, strong Bel yeast, strong lemon peels, spices, fairly strong bitter hops and herbal grass.
Body: Medium body. Slick and fairly smooth palate.
Mouth Feel: Solid maltyness in fairly rich body despite presence of moderate wheaty tartness. The strong thyme-like herbs carry well from arome onto taste. Bnana ester, spices and herbs mix well with lemon zesty hops. Sweet and alcoholic. Refreshing and nice!
Hoppiness: Strong herbs, thin lemon and thin grass in nose. Strong lemon rind, strong thyme, strong spice and grass in taste. Bitterness is moderately strong for an abrupt, mid-astringent sweet bitter finish.
After Taste: Fairly dry. Crisp, herbal and fairly boozy to mouth.
Comments: Another nice and inexpensive scoop from 759 after the surprisingly good Secret Des Moines Triple. Unlike the previously low-blow Tongerlo Blonde and Brune, this Tripel really means business with strong and refreshing herbal aroma and taste for a very nice first impression. Strong lemon and spicy hops mixed with typical Tripel full maltyness, good looks, booze and bitterness. In essence its thyme-like herbs make it shines through. A winner!

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
330 ml bottle pours a crystal clear deep gold with large white head that dissipates quickly. Sweet estery nose with bubblegum and ripe fruit. This delivers a lot on taste, more fruity bubblegum and overripe fruits. High carbonation, medium body. Nice bitter twang in the tail and then when the show is almost over we get some rising warm alcohol. Stone the crows, yet another fabulous tripel!
