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.

paulvanpelt (330) - 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.

TET (1608) - FINLAND - AUG 9, 2014
A dark yellow, cloudy beer with a tall and blond head. The nose has fruits and lemon, herbs and spices, some grain. Taste is fruitful and aromatic, grainy malts, strong spices, lemony sourness. Medium bodied, strong carbonation. Basic and good tripel, tasteful but not thrilling.

Bamsen78 (3078) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - AUG 9, 2014
Bottle. Pours hazy straw with airy off-white head. Clear aroma of fruit, malt and citrus, with notes of flowers and yeast. Sweet, malty and fruity flavour, with notes of flowers and bitter, hoppy touches. Good, round mouthfeel. Sligly spicy and hoppy finish. A good thing.

Pours a hazy golden color with a very thick white head. Nose is yeasty and slightly doughy with a hint of sweetness in there. Body is medium, taxture thick. Fizzy. Taste is sweet. Palate is dominated by candy fruits, bitter and alcohol notes like herbs matured in vodka.. B@H
