2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Dit bier heeft een frisse, moutachtige geur. Troebel goud met een zeer mooie schuimkraag. De smaak is wat eenzijdig: sinaasappel(schil), weeïge mout en wat hop. Niet bijzonder.

Bottle from G&B, shared with the in-laws, Hammel, DK - Yellow fuzzy pour with big white slow dissipating head and clinging lacing. Aroma and taste is citrus fruity, yeasty and wheaty, some nice fresh citrus fruity prominence, light citric fruity spice, refreshing and very enjoyable, lovely.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Clear light amber colour with visible carbonation and a nice velvety white head. Smells like a tripel, which I always found hard to describe - Belgian yeast, flowers , malt and a bit of funkiness. The taste is sweet and spicy, with a maltier body compared to the typical tripel. No taste of funky brett or any other wild yeast in the mouth, and the carbonation just adds to the overall spiciness, making this beer feel very young and refreshing. A bit too sweet for my taste, and there’s a feint metallic taste that I find disturbing, but other than that this is a very good tripel.

Aroma is fruity. Hazy amber color with long white head. Taste is dominated by sweetness but still good.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Big bottle with commonmac. Hazy clear gold with perfect head. Very nice light Belgian aroma. Yeast, fuzzy citrus, sweet, alcohol, reminiscent of the good tripels. Good finish. Really nice, as expected from these guys. I would val do this at least 3 times.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Big bottle purchased at Total Wine & Spirits and consumed with commonshawn. Really attractive looking beer with a quarter finger head that lingers. Spices on the nose with a little bit of fruit (banana) aroma playing along. Taste is completely in the vein of a standard tripel with spices complementing the Belgian yeast and alcohol warmth. Little bit of fruit and spiciness as expected from the style. Mouthfeel has some effervescent qualities. Very high quality effort probably just shy of the top tier of tripels. Improves as it comes to room temp. Let’s Val Dieu it again!
