CitrusP (59) - Newcastle, - JUN 8, 2012
UPDATED: SEP 8, 2012 From 330ml bottle to Glass Aroma - roasty, hay, woody, a pleasant smell that is not overbearing Appearance - amber, orange colour, slightly hazy. head frothy to begin with, settles quite quickly Taste- Medium sweetness with a small amount of sourness and bitterness, rather smooth yet not overly sophisticated Palate - Medium palate with a slick texture, lively carbonation, close to being over the top yet still enjoyable, finishes dry and bitter. poured to instruction - 4/5 to glass, 1/5 to small shot glass, - shot glass was dry and cleaner than full glass flavour.

Legere odeur de geuze. Bière qui ne sort pas du lot. On ne goûte pas l’alcool. Une Bière quelconque....

Ulysse (81) - Brussels, BELGIUM - NOV 4, 2014
Bubble gum aroma and taste. A tiny hint of lambic aroma. The average blond beer. Not much to say about it.

Pringao_Toribi (270) - Oviedo, SPAIN - OCT 26, 2014
In short: sweet and drinkable with a punch of liquor at the end. Aroma: bread and caramel, and a little yeasty. Taste: light and sweet, but nice (not watery or too weak) Palate: very surprising and enjoyable liquor finish.

langeveld12 (249) - NETHERLANDS - OCT 25, 2014
Head is average, frothy, white and slowly diminishing. Body is sparkling golden yellow. Aroma is typically tripel, moderate malts like hay, molasses and bread, light hips like citrus fruits and flowers and light yeasts like leather and also banana, vanilla, some forest fruits and spices. Flavor is light acidic, then sweet and light acidic and finally sweet and bitter. Body is medium with creamy texture and soft carbonation. Quite allright, not among the best. Misses complexity.

VDuquerroux (338) - Airvault, FRANCE - OCT 20, 2014
Bottle, 33cL. Home. A clear golden yellow beer ; bubbly ; medium white "omelet" head with a good retention. Herbal aroma, spices, biscuit, prune, banana. First, medium sweet, then medium dry bitter waves. Full body, medium silky texture, good carbonation (nearly fizzy), dry bitter finish with a light warming note. Overall, delicious, balanced tripel taste, silky... Cheers !!

culchiem (2589) - Berlin, GERMANY - OCT 16, 2014
Bottle in Hermans. Clean gold with a fluffy head. Aroma is peppery yeast. Tangy on the tongue. Sweet fruity flavour, a little metal on a tart bitter finish.
