COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottle conditioned.
Ingredients: Water, barley malt, sugar, hops, yeast.
The aroma of this beer is agreeably gentle and is carried by a discreet bitterness while the balance between the malt and hops relies on fruity accents and a lightly fresh aftertaste.

12oz Bottle: Not a bad experience at all. I’m not usually a tripel fan, but this was quite pleasant. Plenty of sweet fruity undertones follow a slightly dry nit-too-boozy finish. The nose was a bit under-pronounced, but it was poured into a pint glass, so not necessarily the brew’s fault. Included in a 6pk selection featuring mostly St. Bernardus, I thought this really stood out on it’s own for what I had expected to be an unimportant "extra" in the selection.

330ml bottle from the LCBO. Beautiful foam head over a golden hazy body. Aroma is unique and magnificent: pepper, orange zest, bubble gum and clove. It;s spicy, it’s sessionable, it’s complex, wow. It’s got some witbier qualities and possesses a similar mouth-feel and finish. Extremely well integrated alcohol with minimal perceived bitterness and some hop-based fruitiness.

Bottle from Tom - thanks! Hazy gold pour with a white head. Yeast and fruit. Maybe getting a touch of chemical but not enough to throw it way off for me.

guiroul33 (80) - Bordeaux, FRANCE - OCT 18, 2014
Golden hazy color, nice stable white foam. Aroma of Belgian yeast, white bread. Taste is well balanced, first sweet but more bitter in the aftertaste, creamy texture, soft carbonation. Nice tripel!

Étonnament raffrichissante pour une triple! Ça se boit vraiment très bien. Il y a des notes de bananes et d’épices. Bonne bière!

Spicy and I guess not too bad but triples like this are not for me. Palata is good, somewhat sweet. Bottle from De Zwart in Wilnis.

In bottle at St Bernardus; poured a golden orange. Quite a smooth triple .. very easy drinking, though I prefer their St Bern triple over this one .. Otherwise a nice beer for it’s type
