3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Poured a hazy bright yellow with a huge amount of froathy white head that does not go away one bit. Aroma is caramel, lemon, banana, and slight brandy alcohol. Flavor was much more bitter than i expected from a tripel, citrus lemon flavor definitely there. Overall, decent, but not my favorite.

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Aroma: sweet, malty, yeast, metal, fruit, hay
Appearance: large head initially, mostly diminishing, fair lacing, golden/yellow/sparkling
Flavor: moderately sweet, lightly bitter,
Palate: body-medium, texture-dry/watery, carbonation-soft, finish-metalic/alcohol
Overall: It has been one of my favorite Tripels so far.... the fruitiness comes out if you have it at the right temp.... which I think should be only slightly chilled....
and someone mentioned flowers in the taste... I can totally get that....

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
poured with an extremely lively head so beware. fruity aroma, peaches maybe or pear?, brilliant sparkle to the beer, golden colour very nice to look at and even better to taste, slightly dry on the finish, more fruit at the very end, my first try at a triple but will have to find some more. very enjoyable

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Cork popped off and hit my ceiling. Pours clear golden with big bubbly and fluffy white head. Aroma is spicy, fruity, earthy and alcohol. Taste is fruity up front like plums/peaches and then smoothes out with yeasty and malt. Finishes with a peach taste. Finishes dry. Medium body. Nice carbonation, like a sparkling wine. Not bad.

Big head. Be careful when pouring this beer. The taste is very good and complex and the aroma is very nice as well. Strong corbonation gives this beer a sparkling white or champagne like texture and it compliments the wheat and fruit like taste

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
750ml corked bottle. Bright gold with huge white head, last pour hazy with yeast sediment. Nose of apples, pear, hay, metal, mineral, funk, yeast, and some malt sweetness. Flavor is a nice blend of light fruit and dry yeast, slightly sweet throughout, with a drying, biting finish. Lively carbonation is not overdone. Nicely done, could be a bit deeper in flavors.

Bottle. White very high astonishingly creamy and good-looking head. Hazy light yellow body. Banana aroma. Flavor dominated by carbonation and a pleasant bitterness. Not what I expected from a beer whith banana flavor and a head like that. Pleasant surprise.
