33 cl bottle at Rembrandt in Tongeren. Almost no aroma, it was really hard to figure out. Tasted like metal, some bitterness and sweet corn. Average beer but i'd drink it again. Lovely glass and on the plus side, the last amounts of beer in the bottle are poured in a seperate shot glass. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Colour: Dark gold. Thin white head. Nose: Vanilla, citrus, grassy, bread. Hints of toffee and caramel. Sweet. Flavours: Spices and herbs at first. Then some sweet notes (licorice, sugary). Finish: Medium sweet, alcoholic. Ends a bit on an off-note. Verdict: Very drinkable, easy, but avarage Tripel.

Monchito_IPA (129) - SPAIN - MAY 23, 2014
Espuma blanca abundante que se disipa demasiado rápido. Rubia. Aroma algo pobre para una tripel, con demasiado alcohol. En el paladar entrada dulce y cálida con algo de amargor final y ligeramente afrutada. Está bien pero le falta complejidad y le sobra presencia de alcohol.

Een heerlijke tripel, met frisse bloesem- en graansmaak. Lichte bitter van hop en gist. Erg aan te raden.
