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.

rangerred (989) - Johnson City, Tennessee, USA - JAN 22, 2013
330ml bottle into a goblet. Pours a slightly hazy medium orange with a half finger fluffy white head. Excellent head retention with just a little bit of lacing on the sides of the glass. There is really a whole lot going on in the aroma. Lots of Belgian spicyness along with some peach and orange. marmalade. Strong notes of caramel candy and lightly toasted bread. More earthy than I was expecting. The flavor doesn’t seem quite as complex as the aroma but it is still quite enjoyable. Bread mixed with peaches and orange throughout with a lot of banana and clove up front. Hops are nearly non-existent which is appropriate. Some caramel sweetness but it is restrained with a somewhat drying finish bringing up the end. No hint of alcohol whatsoever. Overall, a really good tripel with quite a bit going on. I really love the number of nuances in the aroma and flavor. This is a really interesting as well as refreshing beer to drink.

Bottle shared by Marduk, thanks! BB 06.05.2017. Amber with white off-head. Fruity and caramelly, plus nice hop character. Soft on the palate, carbonation crisp. Alcohol present, but it doesn’t come across as boozy. Nothing bad to say, but not exactly memorable either.

Pullo @ Saveur-Biere. Kaatuu tulppaaniin kullankeltaisena ja hieman sameana, muhkean (n. 3 sormen) vaahdon suojaamana. Tuoksussa on runsaasti mausteista belgihiivaisuutta ja happaman puoleista sitruunaisuutta, kevyemmin löytyy pureskeltavaa viljaisuutta sekä makeampaa hedelmäisyyttäkin. Maussa on napakka pippurisen ja yrttisen mausteinen hiivaisuus, jonka jälkeen löytyy makeampaa ja tummempaa hedelmäisyttä sekä raikkaampaa sitruksisuutta. Suutuntuma on hieman makea, mutta se kuivuu loppua kohden selvästi. Melko täyteläinen, kuohkea ja alkoholi lämmittää, kuten tyyliin kuuluu. Tyylinmukainen tripel, jota voisi vaikka oppikirjaesimerkkinä käyttää. Kaikki löytyy mitä tarvitseekin, mutta intensiivisyyttä olisin toivonut hieman lisää.

Michael27 (159) - Berlin, GERMANY - MAR 22, 2016
Typisch belgisches Tripel, was Farbe und leicht grasigen Geruch betrifft. Schaumkrone ist ziemlich schwach ausgebildet. Geschmacklich eher ein durchschnittliches Abtei-Tripel. Mittelschwer süß, wie auch der Körper.

bunget (765) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 19, 2016
330ml bottle. Hazy yellow body, huge white head with good retention. Surprisingly fresh and floral aroma: grass, yeast, green grapes, camomile. Taste of yeast, sugar, herbs, peppercorn, leather. Very well done.
