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.

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.

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

paulvanpelt (337) - Reusel, NETHERLANDS - AUG 17, 2014
UPDATED: AUG 18, 2014 Niet gedronken uit glas, dus uiterlijk niet beoordeeld. Amberkleurig. Aroma van banaan, rozijnen, maar ook het kruidige van een Belgische tripel. Weeïg zoet, zacht, volle body.
