4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
This beer is one of my favourites, it was the first beer I drank abroad (Brussels ’12!) and I was blown away. Pours a lovely thick white head which just looks perfect in the Tripel Karmeliet glass, has a nice misty golden body with an active level of carbonation. Aroma is quite clean and citrus like with slight vanilla and apricot highlights. Quite a light and fizzy mouthfeel, again very clean in the taste, somewhat wheaty and grainy finish with a slight apricot and vanilla highlight. A really enjoyable beer!!

4.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Draught at Bierhaus. Pours a beautifully refreshing cloudy golden with a medium frothy white head. Lovely sweet aroma of caramel and berries, with a hint of honey and madeira cake. Tastes better than anything imaginable really - lovely toffee and caramel heavy sweetness with a nice light strawberry and orange zing. Elements of a Witbier to it too. Just the most delicious taste you can come across in a beer. Beautifully smooth sweet aftertaste, with a soft carbonation and a beautifully light bitter body. An absolutely remarkable beer, much like I imagine beer on draught in heaven would taste like. No matter how many times I drink this, I can’t comprehend how an 8.4% Tripel can be so light, so refreshing and so drinkable. Comfortably in my 3 favourite beers in the world, just beautiful.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: MAR 7, 2015 Hazy golden pour with loads of carbs topped by a finely structured head showing good retention. Lacing is also very nice. The nose is very delicate with notes of caramel, lemon, honey and yeasts. The taste is excellent with a great fruity presence of the yeast delivering apples and pears paired with a dense contribution of floral hops. The mouthfeel is sharp, lightly acidic and dense which I found very enjoyable. Overall this one is a must for anyone who enjoys well-crafted beers. You could easily put this one in your cellar for 2 or 3 years.

Pours an almost opaque yellow body with a thick fluffy head. Mildly sweet aroma with pear, orange, malts. Taste is full-bodied with balancee fruit aroma, little estery, soft spicy hops. A well balanced beer, better than I’d hitherto thought.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Clear draft white head. Off skunky aroma and taste. Grassy and astringent, bitter. No hop, no malt. I might have gotten a bad pour looking at some of these other ratings, I’ll try it again and re-rate this, but overall, wasn’t a very pleasent tasting expirence.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours a dark golden body, witha huge white head that stays until I finish my glass. Yeast pretty much dominates the aroma, but also getting some hints of fruits, very interesting. Medium bitter taste, notes of malts and yeast, heavy bitter aftertaste. Medium carbonation, oily texture, medium body. Not what I expected, but it’s definately a world class beer in its style.

Een heerlijke, rijke smaak. Citrus, lichte hop. Fris. Plaatje om te zien, met een lichte schuimkraag en een gouden kleur.

4.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
33 cl bottle@home in trappist glass. Approx 8 degrees C. Pours hazy dark yellow with large white head. The Champagne of Beers! I have long regarded this as one of the great beers in the world. I haven’t had one since I began rating, so I was really looking forward to this bottle. And I was not disappointed! Effervescent in a way I do not really find in other beer - hence the Champagne comparison. Complex aroma of yeast, harvesting and citrus. Taste of wheat and oat - almost with the sweetnes of hefeweizen, yet its own and with a clear, dry maltiness in the aftertaste..No booziness despite high ABV, this is so fresh and drinkable that you do not feel it till you stand up - so be careful! The commercial deScription is not far off the mark in this case - this is the Tripel which stands out among its peers!

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at Fermentøren, Copenhagen, DK. Hazy yellow with a thick, creamy, fully persisting white head, leaving a thick coat of lace on the glass. The aroma is malty, fruity, vaguely yeasty. The taste is on the sweet side with a moderate bitterness. Very soft on the palate, with a light bitter finish.
