3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a bright, cloudy yellow with a fizzy looking, quickly fading white head. Pleasing aroma has banana, pineapple, spices, and honey. As happy as I am with the taste, I am even more so with the flavor. It has a spicy notes, clove, banana, and lots of Belgian yeast. Slightly sour and dry when drinking, with a spicy, yeasty aftertaste. Medium bodied with a foamy texture, as well as fizzy carbonation. The alcohol content hides itself well here. It really doesn’t feel or taste like a 9% beer. It feels very Belgian altogether. This is a very good beer.

At Milanos in a snifter. A classic triple. Pours murky golden with a small head. Wheaty sweet with a creamy mouthfeel.

bottle at home from beers of the world geneva
quite orangey gold with dense off-white head collapsing to lacing. Very warming, lots of weizen like clovey esters and a touch of banana, full bodied, spritzy carbonation warming alcohol, reminds more of a weizenbock, quite sweet and fruity. V enjoyable, bit of alcohol burn - triple fermentation does not make it a tripel but certainly Belgianesque

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap at beerbistro in Toronto. Translucent murky goldenish yellow with rather nice off-white head. The nose is yeasty, wheaty-grainy, sweet, caramelly fresh. Tastes similarily, pretty sweet, caramelly and fruity. Thin crisp carbonation and medium body, somewhat dryish finish. Clean and well made but I can’t really see this as a top 50 Tripel... Then again, most of the few top 50 I’ve had I’ve rated well below their average so I guess I’m just not a big Tripel fan.

For a rather unattractive pout this is a clean tasting tripel! The pour is cloudy so I expected a muddy taste...wrong! clean and crisp! High ABV is not detectable by taste...smooth enjoyable and I will drink it again.

4.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Gorgeous dusty gold, moderate foam. A hint of metal under a rich scent of peaches and cream, dried fruit, bread and banana. Peppery banana taste and intense juiciness. Creamy citrus notes. Utterly delicious and deceptively high in alcohol. This is my go to, amazingly affordable and a classic tripel. I love trying new ones but always come back.

Bouteille de 341ml. Dégustée le 31 janvier 2015. Bière blonde dorée voilée. Très effervescente, bulles moyennes. Mousse assez, col blanc moyen persistant (se régénère constamment). Odeur de levure et d’épices. Saveur épicée en amorce, avec alcool qui ressort juste un peu, puis de fruits secs (figues/dates) ensuite. Assez costaude mais pas trop lourde, se boit bien malgré le taux d’alcool élevé.

A strongly hazy, light yellow, a head is big and almost white. Aroma has fruitness of lemon, some spicyness and bananas, balanced. Taste has fruitness, bananas and some lemon, low spicyness, hint of alcohol that’s not bothering. Medium bodied, strong carbonation, fresh. Balanced and tasteful Tripel.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Slightly hazy yellow color with white head. Aroma has the typical belgian yeast esters with flowers, hay, green meadow and other rustic notes. Taste starts with banana and bubblegum, also floral notes, hay and other yeast esters. Leans a bit on the sweet side but the finish is really balanced. Body is quite heavy and smooth with medium carbonation. Really classic and well made. The only downside for me is the slight alcohol presence.
