Bottle. Hazy golden color, bottle overflowed when opened. No biggie. Smells sweet. Very smooth on the palate, nice! Tastes sweet and a bit fruity (i.e. a more ’complex’ sweetness). Some alcohol burn. Feels a bit like a mellower Samaranth. Perhaps I am only connecting these two due to the brewery. Anyway, an enjoyable beer. Good thing I drank it quite cold, hiding the alcohol burn a bit I bet.

33 cl bottle @ hotel room, Brussels. Rated on 19.07.2010
Aroma is sweetish with lots of wheat, some yeast and ripe fruits. Flavour has fruits, some apricot, yeasty notes and some alcohol. A bit too boozy but good still.

keepersj12 (2627) - Sicklerville, New Jersey, USA - JUL 30, 2012
Pours a hazy amber with a thin head. The aroma is very fruity with sweet and sour notes along with some Belgian spices and a hint of booze. the flavor is also fruity and a bit of the booze warms the throat. There is also a bit of pepper and a nice bitter feel to it. Medium bodied and very refreshing.

mcberko (5917) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 22, 2012
Bottle at Saraveza, pours a cloudy golden with a medium white head. Aroma of tart fruits, stone fruits, Belgian yeast. Flavour is both tart and sweet, with over-ripe fruits, light Belgian yeast and more of the over-ripe fruits. Very atypical for a tripel, much sweeter and slightly tarter. Excellent, despite its unorthodoxy.

Gold pour with a white head. Nose is green apples, dried fruits, alcohol, belgian yeast, and sweet. Easy palate, heavy green apples, sweet, honey, dried fruits, and a smooth finish.
