Enchanting and enlightening, this golden, frothy ale boasts an intriguing herbal aroma, warming alcohol esters on the tongue and light, but firm body to finish. Exotic spices add subtle notes to both the aroma and flavor. Strong, sensual and satisfying.

Nice neon light straw with a puffy head. Subtle yeast, bubble gum toothpaste, cloves, other spices on nose. Balanced and wide flavor profile - honey sweetness, coriander, peppers, yeast, banana, lemon, and many other hints. Gentle finish with spices and slight bitterness. It’s not going to trick you into thinking it’s a "true" belgian tripel, but that’s a big part of why it works for me. There are hints of Victory’s je ne sais quoi (waters from pale ale - malts from donneybrook) with a friendly assimilation of the tripel style.

60minuteman (1335) - West Chester, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 11, 2016
Foggy orange-golden color without head or lace. A yeasty/boozy aroma reminiscent of a tripel. Flavors consist of spice, soap, orange, banana, clove and floral. It is pleasant and summery but almost too sweet...and metallic. A bit all over the place. Still fun.

thellgren (810) - Helsinki, FINLAND - SEP 10, 2016
0.355 l bottle from Alko Hakaniemi, Helsinki. Appearance is golden and clear. Taste is quite sweet. A bit too sweet for me. That’s not what a good tripel should be. Might be perfect for ladies who seek sweet ale or beer. What’s this psychedelic drug dextrin doing here?

This beer is very good. Especially for the price you cannot go wrong. This is one of my weekly goto beers. I got introduced to the beer from my beer distributor around the block from me ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Holmen1 (4807) - Stavanger, NORWAY - SEP 5, 2016
Fra flaske på Mi2 Cardinal, aug-16: klar lys gylden med fltt, hvitt skum. Lett krydret aroma og smak med fin maltsødme som balanserers av et diskret pepperkorn eller to. Koriander og hvitt kandissukker blander seg også inn i bildet. Lav bitterhet og søtlig ettersmak. Serveres best godt avkjølt i små glass?

Fujimo2000 (96) - Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, USA - SEP 2, 2016
Pours golden with a slow dissipating white lacing. Light wheat with a very smooth finish. Unlike any triple I’ve ever seen.

TheKernOwl (188) - West Sussex, ENGLAND - AUG 31, 2016
On the nose, v much like a super-charged nice Weizen (e.g. Weihenstephaner): all ester-y fruit (banana and apple). In the mouth it is smoother than some Belgians (van Steenberge beers, for example) but also slightly sweeter. A nice, but slightly candied version of the style; if this is worthy of a 95% rating, then someone needs to take a trip to Belgium.
