3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at the winking lizard - Pours golden and hazy with a short white head that stayed pretty well. Aromas of grass, apple, some yeast, and some grains. Flavor is grainy, yeast, apples, grass and a little pepper spice towards the finish. Pretty smooth and clean on the palate and a pretty nice drinkable tripel.

Great effervescence. Little hop flavor. No alcohol burn at all. Great and refreshing example of a tripel.

Pale blond colour with massive white foamy head that quickly settles. Massive acidic, fruity aroma with some yeast too. Sharp, clean and tasty. Flavours of apples and citrus are there together with a little yeast. Very clean aftertaste.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Wow, what an aroma, like fresh mown grass, fruity, caramel and just down right enjoyable to sniff! Zero head (I don’t have a trappist glass though, using a wine glass) certainly an alcohol kick but is quickly soothed by a sweet flash of berries and oats, a beautiful beer although I don’t think I could drink more than two or three in a row. I will buy again.

The best tripel according to me. Super mouthfeel from wheat and carbon. Fruity and yeast aroma, and sweet/fruity taste. Very balanched, not as bitter as other trippels. Reminds me more of a sweet sour ale than a normal tripel.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle: Pours a cloudy straw blonde with a massive white head that just doesn’t want to leave. Clumps of foamy lacing. Nose is noticably Belgian; of fruits, yeast, and grain. The taste is what separates this from the pack. A blend of apple, pear, and citrus round out the fruitiness. Light yeast, malt, and some spices are present in a very smooth, clean, and drinkable ale.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Poured from 33cl bottle into a Trappist glass. One finger white head that dissipated almost instantly. Perfumy fruit aroma...wow! Heavy on the bananas. Beautiful brownish orange color. One of the finest looking tripels I have seen. Don’t want to ruin the presentation by tasting it but...perfumy or floral aroma carries over into the flavor. Initially very tangy, then subtle ending. Alcohol is very sneaky...(this is my third +8 ABV in 2 hours though). 98th percentile????? YES! Give me Karmeliet or give me...Karmeliet, please. Highly recommend!
