Champagne champagne champagne. This beer looks like it, smells like it, and tastes like it. Golden, effervescent appearance with a bubbly white head. Aroma is of some yeast esters and sweet malt, and there is a light note of sour fruitiness in the background. The body is very light and thin with a heavy, effervescent carbonation. Bubbly in a good way, though. Flavor is of malt, yeast esters -- clove and banana in particular, and a slight grape fermentation sourness. Good beer, fun to drink.

This was a very good beer I expected this to be a very strong alcohol taste, however it was quite subtle and smooth ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Cloudy golden pour with thin white head. Aroma is amazing - a mix of yeast, biscuit, candy apple, banana, and mild spice. Flavor is similar if not as remarkable, with nice balance of fruity esters, malty bread and slight sweetness. Finish is fairly clean with just a touch of slight dry/sour.

Ma première critique, soyez indulgents :) Au nez, je perçois des arômes de céréales, d’orange et d’autres fruits plus doux comme la pomme, et d’épices. La mousse blanche est fuyante, et la robe est d’un orangé voilé. Elle est plutôt effervescente, les bulles sont serrées . En bouche, je remarque qu’elle est très fruitée, un peu épicée, et je constate une certaine acidité, ou du moins un goût d’agrumes. Malgré le 9%, le goût d’alcool n’est pas trop prononcé. La finale est sèche, et laisse peu d’arrière-goût. Pas mon type de bière préféré, et je ne suis pas spécialiste en tripe belge, mais la Don de Dieu me semble être une bonne bière réussie.

Bottle - Sweet apricot and some honey like notes. Cloudy gold with a decent white head. Sweet stone fruit and a nice fruity sweetness. No booze at all which is surprising, but lots of fruity sweetness.

It pours a cloudy pale orange color with a white, creamy head. It has aromas of biscuit, toast, orange, pear, floral, and spices. The initial flavors are of pears and oranges. It also has flavors of biscuit and toast. There is a bit of floral elements as well. It has a medium feel and textures with a moderately bitter sweet finish with moderate carbonation. It does have a slight bit of alcohol warming, but not to the degree to suggest that it has a 9 ABV.

A nice fruity berry beer. Pours a cloudy orange with a white head. Smells of berries, mostly strawberry and citrus. Taste is much the same. Lots of strawberry and raspberry with a smooth Belgian background. Not tart at all, very fruity. Had in the bottle.

Bawelt (262) - Lyon, FRANCE - DEC 11, 2015
Intéressante. On sent bien le côté blanche : le blé, un fond miel assez herbace, légèrement épicé. Manque de corps en revanche pour une triple. Le côté blanche poussé par la tripe tire vers un mélange rapidement écoeurant (goût épicé). Pas fan.

341ml bottle. Hazy amber, effervescent bubbles and a foamy white head. Flavors are bread, honey, vanilla, pear, orange, apple, almonds, alcohol and spices with floral notes. Medium body, lively carbonation, slick texture.

Bottle in San Diego. Classic tripel yeast fruity esters. A little sweet, low bitterness, how I personally like a tripel, but got a little cloying towards the end. Still, a nice tripel.
