3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Tried in Delirium Tap House. Something missing to be a good trippel, but seemly everything presented... Probably not the best sample.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle . Drank this tripel cold, while giggling on my awefull language-joke luckely only Dutch speaking people might understand .
Pours clear blonde, small ( almost no ) white head . Smell is grainy , the sharp bitter side, but with a sweet undertone . Taste is bitter ( very bitter even for the style ) with a malty / hoppy ( green hops ) ending . Yeast is very clearly there as well , banana-tones , typical Belgian Abbey yeast . High carbo , but it fits the beer .
A nice , typical tripel with an intense taste of every base- ingredient of a beer , in balance , easy drinkable , good mouthfeel ,... My score ( compared to my other ratings ) doesnt make this beer seem rememorable, but its actually - in its style-typical kind - one of the best I drank . No shit, just a basic beer thats very well made. Nice !

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
My Bottom Line:
Coriander envelopes this Tripel’s soft cereals, a spiciness kept in check by lively effervescence.
Further Personal Perceptions:
-A foam cumulus settles atop the misty golden.
-This is a tad too spice-laden for my tastes in the style.
-Coriander seems more important than the beer’s esters and hops, which is too bad.
-Drinkability is quite high due to the finishing dryness and high effervescence.
-The yeast pour adds a bready component which is enjoyable.
-This is by no means a memorable Tripel, but it is still efficient and pleasant.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle, 33cL. Home. A beautiful hazy orange amber beer with a medium white head. Medium to poor persistence. Fruity aroma (lemon), coriander, exotic note (due to ginger?), herbs. Medium to heavy bitter, very light sweet. Medium body and texture. Average carbonation. Long dry bitter finish. A nice tripel with this dry bitterness and this "exotic" note.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from Les Fleurs du Malt (the shop), Lyon. Pours a clear sparkling dark golden body with a huge creamy white head, with substantial staying power. Nose is pale malts, floral yeasty tones, white candi sugars and hints of wet grass and straw. Taste is white sugars, pale malts, hints of baked bread and straw with some hints of floral yeast and alcohol. Medium body, high carbonation. Nice enough tripel for sure, but perhaps not too exciting.
