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.

Mousse blanche onctueuse, arôme classique de levure, couleur jaune doré, à la première gorgée on reconnait la triple belge, la levure, le malt. Cette bière est d’une grande tradition. Je la recommande. 33 Cl Vanuxem

Bouteille 330ml (A 16-07-17). Classique parmi les classiques cette triple est de couleur dorée quelque peu trouble. Un nez d’épices marqué par la levure. Une bouche simple mais efficace avec de la coriandre et encore des épices. Un corps intéressant. Une finale quelque peu aigre.

SlovakSniper (4313) - Candiac, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 19, 2016
(33 cl. A 16 07 17) Blonde avec chevelure blanche qui s’évapore tout doucement. À l’olfactif, des épices, de la banane en petits morceaux, une ou des agrumes, du pain. Au goût, de la levure, des fruits, de la coriandre ou d’autres épices, des herbes et/ou des fleurs. En bouche, un corps étonnant qui permet une meilleure buvabilité. En finale, une pointe aigre, florale et épicée. Intéressante, il va sans dire.

Aroma - fruit esters, some bubblegum aroma from the yeast, wheaty Appearance - gold body, cloudy, and unfiltered. Head is white and about 1" and hangs out for a while. Taste - some tanginess, Belgian yeast character and a bit of bubblegum going on, some coriander, orange peel, other spice. Palate - body is medium, the carbonation is average, the finish dry and slightly bitter.

Purchased as part of the Holiday Mixer Pack. Cellered since fall of 2014. Smells sweet, almost citrus/fruity. Pours a cloudy dark gold. Lots of head that lasts to the end. Taste is of a Tripel only a little sweeter, with a slightly harsh aftertaste. Lots of carbonation. Goes down smooth. Overall I was very happy with this brew. Although, I do prefer the St Bernardus Tripel more. MB The Beer Bearon
