4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Aroma: Floral, yeast, bread, citrus, lemon peel, notes of candy sugar and coriander-like spice.
Flavor: Yeast, bread, caramel, followed by lemon, more bread and dried flowers (chamomile) on the mid-palate. These flavors carry on into the finish and the yeasty quality reappears.
Palate: Soft and smooth; the carbonation seems, paradoxically, to explode on the tongue, adding a unique dimension the palate.
Comment: Great complexity. Of the few 1000 or so beers I’ve tried, this is my new favorite. Very few can top this. Tasted on 2 different days with consistent notes. When allowed to warm a bit, pear-like fruit comes through on the mid-palate.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
An outstanding beer, great citrus and grassy nose, pours pure gold under a lovely head. Complex and fruity, with a hint of hop and a lot of herb and floral elements. Lasts a good long time. Nothing to complain about, this is a great beer. The one bottle I had in Amsterdam in July 2014 was not remarkably different from the several I have enjoyed at home.

Note floral au nez. Pas mal de mousse. Le sucre de l’alcool se sent. Couleur dorée. Bouche symparhique plus floral que sucré.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Looks refreshing with a bright golden color. Smells of fruity yeast esters, citrus, vanilla and light spices. More of the same in the taste. Also, wheat, honey, oat sweetness, faint banana, apple and lemon. Light to medium body and finishes dry. A very nice Tripel.

4.1 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Smels of a meadow lying next to an orchard of citrus fruit. Floral and citrus with a soft body of something banana’ish. Via tasting it has a slightly alcohol tasting feel in the end.
Appearance is pale colored yellow with a hazy look. Foam is frothy and white and long lasting.
Taste is a medium sweetness (less than expected from aroma) with a lightly bitter ending that stretches long.
A medium body of sweetness and somewhat umami’ish. What I like to call a soft and broad feel on the toungue. Carbonation is soft although heavy with many small bubbles tickling all over.
A nice beer for a warm summer night - less so for a cold winter with tapas in the dining room (as this was written). Quite complex taste and aroma, and a nice although notextraordinary palate.

33cl @ bottle. Ottima Tripel belga di cui potresti berne 1 lirtro di fila senza problemi. Beverina, dolce, dissetante.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Straw-yellow, light haze, 2-inches of billowing white head that fades at a moderate rate. Aroma is hop dominated. Juniper, pine, lemon grass, grass, herbs, dry wheat grain. Body is huge blanket of fizzy carbonation, moderate coarseness, medium-intense burn, light body, watery and a bit oily. Flavor has a unique lemon drop contribution (which includes a touch of candy sweetness), some grass and grain. Touch of apricot and minimal bitterness in the finish. Great tripel. Refreshingly light body. Still, the carbonation feel is a bit over-the-top. Lemon drop is a bit dominant in the flavor; could use a bit more yeast complexity.
