2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Nice small beer, with a citrus fruits aroma. No taste of alcohol due to the sugar (my friends says too much). Again, a good beer to drink in the sun, at a terrace.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Rich blond aroma with a strong citrus component. A bit sweet. Not bad but nothing special.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bière légère à l’arôme citronée. Amertume douce. Un peu sucrée. Bière sympa à boire mais un peu trop classique.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours hazy pale gold with two fingers of rocky white head, excellent retention and lacing. (4/5) Nose is bready malt, coriander, tropical fruit, red berries, slight citrus. (8/10) Taste is moderate sweet, moderate bitter. (8/10) Medium bodied, moderate carbonation, lingering bitter finish. (4/5)
Oh yeah, I like this. Initially, this doesn’t seem all that much like the Generaal. (According to the brewer "The only difference between them is that the Tripel is brewed with one malt variety and Generaal with three.”) But after a couple of sips, the similarities become more apparent - I guess they really are brothers from a different mother. Nice depth of flavour that definitely grows on you, very pleasant Belgian. (16/20)

Bonne bière d’Abbaye, qui ne surprend pas, mais qui contient tous les aromes qu’on attend. légèrement sucrée, avec un léger gout de caramel. Bonne longueur en bouche.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
bottle @ Party Source / Bellevue KY --- Slightly hazy dirty light amber color, 3" rocky white head that is slow to drop, bubbly streaks of lace. Aroma of malt, bread, and coriander. Taste is yeasty malt that grows into the palate, becoming spicy while adding biscuit and hay. Just a little bittering is all that is needed to balance. This is an attractive looking, very well-balanced, and tasty Tripel, not overwhelming or loaded with alcohol. High recommendations.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Slight explosion as soon as top cracked, but not too extreme. Nice hazy golden honey coloured body with a thinnish, single centimetre tall just off-white head with a zillion small bubbles rising from the bottom. Aroma of sour gueuze, light brett, wheat, coriander seed, yeast, alcohol, grass, hay and a bit of sweet apples and pears - very nice and complex smells. Medium to Full-bodied; Assertive effervescence with a very nice sour quality up front that fades fast to coriander seed, curacao, honey, grass, wheat and a lot of yeast...all with a nice dry finish. Aftertaste is very complex with the yeast and wheat hitting hardest, but some coriander seed freshness coupled with some light sweetness from fruit and the constant effervescence shows some sour and brett flavours from the yeast. Overall, a very nice and incredibly complex beer that shows a ton of flavours ranging the gamut and a nice texture with carbonation makes it even more exciting. I sampled this stubby 33 cL bottle purchased from Beer Mania in Bruxelles, Belgium on 30-June-2012 for €3,99 sampled at home in Washington exactly a week after returning from Belgium again on 26-January-2015.
