This pale gold Belgian gives you nice lace on your glass and a sweet malty character that runs from the aroma through the flavor and on to the aftertaste.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Light gold color with a medium head; yeast aroma; the taste is slightly sweet, with a definite aftertaste of alcohol; not among the top tripels I've tried

Pours a clear fizzy golden with a dense rocky white head. Thick bready Belgian yeast aroma leads into a sweet sugary, lightly caramelized body. Full body finishes sticky sweet with very little notice of alcohol.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Extremely light clear yellow, large lasting bubbly head. . . Loads of perfume and flowery alcohol in the aroma, some good flavours of pepper, cotton candy, chewy marshmellow sugars, and fresh flowers. Citrus hops in the finish, nice but not overly enjoyable for me.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Color of flan, hazy with a thick, coarse, eggshell head....almost like meringue. Yeast and clove in the aroma. Flavor was very full and very striking.....alcohol was not masked very well at all....it dominated this bad boy. Banana pudding, peach, and more clove blended together well....fairly spicy on the edges too....damn good trippel!

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle. Hazy yellow with a generous head. Peppery and sweet aroma that transitions beautifully into a flavor including said peppers and a qhole lot of fruits...pears, peaches, apples, nectarine, winelike grapes. 9% ABV makes itself quite well known but this only seems to enhance the experience. Fruitiness lingers well into the finish. I liked this a lot!!

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Fruity and plentifully yeasty aroma, flowery and sweet, with notes of honey, pear, freshly cut wood and anise. Light golden amber color, with a creamy, rocky head and copious amounts of lace. Sweet, creamy start, becoming very floral and fruity, finishing with some peppery alcohol and hop spice. Thick yet effervescent mouthfeel, quite full-bodied.

This was a positive surprise since I did not enjoy the Blonde nor the Brune of Val-Dieu. This is a good tripel with a nice fresh and tasty flavour.

Wow this is a great tasting triple. Has a very similar appearance to Duvel but with a lot more head and body to it. Has a lot of different flavors going for it. Has hints of banana, and a nice overall balance. Head stayed strong with this beer also, a very enjoyable brew

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
App: Great white head, streaming bead, dirty blonde color, slight haze, looks delicious, with whipped cream on top. Ample lacing left after glass was empty.
Aro: banana, spice, mellow musty-dusty. (faint)bit of pepper or clove?? sweet malt overall mellow mix
pal: good drinking beer, light and fizzy, not watery, velvety.
fla:classic profile.yeast oranginess(hops or spice?), snappy finish with good bitterness,but also a sweetness lingering..picked up some mineral?(water or metallic?)Fades...bitterness fades as it warms and alc comes out...don't like that...reminds me of a duvel with more body and malt...the more I drink the sweeter it seems.
overall:Nothing shocking, just a solid beer, with a bit of artistic touch. too slight on the uniqueness and the alc showed too much at the end. If I were a style-nazi, this might be the epitome of a tripple, but I like uniqueness...it doen't win
