MoritzF (8389) - Bochum, GERMANY - JAN 17, 2010
(bottle) Hazy, golden colour with a big and dense cream-coloured foamy head. Yeasty, citrus-fruity and peppery hoppy aroma with strong spicy notes of coriander. Bitter and slightly sweet flavour, medium to full bodied with a soft carbonation. Pale and cara-malty taste with yeasty and hoppy fruity notes; quite dry and bitter finish with a light malty sweetness, slightly citric and floral hops and loads of coriander spice. A tad too spicy but nevertheless likeable Tripel. 15.I.10

A 0.33L bottle shared at Janoinen Lohi (thanks FatPhil). <thin white head. A slightly hazy pale golden colour. Roasted malts and slight dryness in the taste. Not very sweet. Hoppiness at the end.

330ml bottle (Janoinen Lohi, Helsinki, Belgian Weeks)
Bright orange. Fruity, but also sour aroma - lemon fresh? Almost urinal. Very sharp palate, carbonation high, and drying in the mouth. Leaves a very fruity hoppy finish. A little thin, but plenty of fruity esters. A touch of alcohol too, alas. A bit unbalanced.

Bottle, 5.8%. Good citric aroma, quite funky. Almost clear golden colour. Small white head. The flavour is OK malty, quite citric, some white wine. The finish is a bit rough with a hint of stable.

A clean, unexciting but friendly blonde with reasonable hop presence and thankfully very restrained spicing. Apparently now brewed at Van Steenberge under contract. I guess we can now expect a cleaner, more consistent, less interesting beer. Drank at Mr. Paeleman’s Bloemenlust cafe in Wetteren. 33cL bottle pours bright gold, clear and sparkling, with nicely laced white head. Nose is sweetish, malty, grass-hoppy. Pleasant. Flavor starts sweet but quickly rides the carbonation into a dry, grassy, moderate bitterness. Great balance between sweet and bitter, but the alcohol shows through a little. Spicing is subtle, as it should be. Well put-together.

Bottle, bought @ Willems, Grobbendonk. Pour is a very clear and very pale golden yellow - almost bordering on clear in colour :o). A big, fluffy white head on top. Aroma is very Saison-ish, lots of herbs, yeast, pepper. Lively mouthfeel. Flavour is impressive when compared to its pale colour. A citric base with light sourness. A herbal centre and a slightly nutty and peppery bitter finish. This has perhaps been down-rated a bit more than it deserved. Seems more like a Tripel than anything else.
