5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
Phenomenal three grain beer...delicious, with a sweet fruity start that leads delicately into a potent, hoppy, slightly alcohol-flavored finish. Itís hard to stop drinking this beer. Have had it on tap at Gollem in Amsterdam and itís even better that way!

On tap.Clear golden brew.Stick your nose in the glass,man.apple pie ,fruit sweetness.Hate to sound generic but it has the classic Belgian fruit flavors from the yeast they use but you canít complain.A little thin on the body but not a bad brew.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a clean hazy pale yellow with a thin head. Sweet apple aromas that are suprisingly light. You can taste the wheat in the beer, the body is light but the flavor is big. Mostly sweet, almost like cotton candy but with a lot of fruit in the background

Great tripel!!! Served in its own glass at Maproom, Chicago. Golden and light and scary easy drinkability to this one. Sweet taste and medium mouthfeel, with a nice dry finish to balance the sweet taste. Had many of these and crawled home. One note, this is a much better beer on tap than from the bottle where it can be a little too yeasty, unless you prefer this.

3.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Sour smell, like a sour lemon, and Iím not wild about it. Pumkin orange and opaque. Pours with a foamy head that settles to a medium layer. Effervescent and active in the mouth. Flavor of spiced oranges. Pleasant finish. I enjoy it more as it opens up.

33cl bottle tasted alonside Hoegaarden Grand Cru - I found them very similar, but this is just slightly better IMHO. Head bigger and longer lasting than the Grand Cru, similar light orange hazy appearance. Honey, vanilla, pepper and hop flower aroma, full bodied with long hoppy finish.
