Aroma of yeast, fruits, floral, bready malt, spicy notes. Flavour is moderate sweet with a moderate to medium bitter finish. Rather dry. Quite nice Tripel with an above-average bitterness.

Bottle. Sweet peach/apricot aroma. Pours a cloudy orange with medium sized and well retained head. Very sweet fruity flavour - again peaches/apricots. Full bodied and more sweetness in the finish.

Draft. Gold with medium white head. Very sweet and fruity with some grain in the finish. Could be better if the sweetness was dialed back.

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.
