Pours a hazy light amber. Medium white head that does not last. Light nose, spice and some fruit. Flavour is slightly fruity, bit of spice and belg yeast. Not as sweet as a lot of triples. Slightly bitter finish, quite light bodied. Refreshing.

opalescent golden yellow colour, moderate sized dense, creamy off-white head; typical Belgian tripel aroma with overripe fruits, candy sugar, yeast, floral notes and minimal spices; taste is the same with moderate bitterness and spicy notes in the aftertaste; great tripel

Nische (1225) - Saltsjö-Boo, SWEDEN - JUL 11, 2015
ours slightly cloudy light orange with big foamy head and lots of lacing. Nose is grainy with some dough. Tastes of dough, cereal, grassy bitterness, maybe some light green apple and pears. Taste light sweet medium bitter. Medium body with lots of carbonation and a lasting bitterness to the finish. Was perfect paired with scallops, quite surprisingly.

migwell (120) - Northampton, Massachusetts, USA - MAY 4, 2015
Poured into a thistle, this ale is a murky somewhat translucent pale brown with lots of yeast floating around in it. Looks be damned! It smells of dark fruit, such as turkish apricots, and yeast. The palate is certainly on the thin side for this style, but taste-wise it is very easy drinking and uncomplex. Some tripels are very complex, but not very tasty, this one is the opposite. As far as the ABV (7.5%) it slips by unnoticed. I wouldn’t call this a great tripel, but it is quite acceptable and enjoyable.
