4.4 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
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 doesnít 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.

From bottle to snifter I am rewarded with a pale golden pour laden with sediment. I donít mind, why would I? Itís an old style that is bottle conditioned and it certainly does not detract from the character. My favourite aspect of this little number is the strong floral and spicy hop presence. White pepper and coriander collide with indistinct (to me) floral fun and are only driven further by a bumptious bevy of bubbles. Wee notes of grass, not unpleasant, are weighted artfully against a honey-cereal finish, dry as one could hope for. The very sweetest of apple varieties comes to mind for a fleeting but tasty moment.

UPDATED: APR 4, 2015 33cl bottle@home in Trappist glass@approox 8 degrees C. Pours hazy yellow with white head. Aroma of malt, caramel malt, yeast and bread. Medum to high carbonation. Taste grows on me as I drink it. Subdued hops with malt dominating the taste. In the aftertaste, the hop kicks in and gives a very pleasant bitterness. Not extreme, not spectacular, but it just leaves me with the impression of BEER! - this is really how it should taste - showing how well balanced it is! No spices added, not the most spectacular tripel, but a just damn good beer!

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Typical triple pour, murky honey color with strong frothy head. Beautiful. Fresh but yeasty aroma: grains, soap, young cheese, pepper, touch of vanilla. Reminds of Westmalle. Taste is a very robust, beautifully balanced, traditional Triple. Fresh grains, infused with a touch of dried lemon, vanilla, pepper. Creamy. Reminds of Karmeliet. Aftertaste is sweet, dried apricots. Style-defining quality beer.
