3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
From bottle at a tasting at Bar & Cigar. Slightly hazy pale golden with a white head. Mild fruity aroma with notes of Belgian yeast, malt and almonds. Light to medium body with slightly soft carbonation. Fairly mild in flavour, but not weak. Refreshing and easy drinkable. Far bettet than a pale lager.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Hazy golden, long lasting white head. Aroma of some yeast and hay. Not much taste. Some yeast, dough, hay. Watery texture. Slightly dry finish. Fine as a substitute for pilsener, but nothing more than that.

This beer is hard to get compared to the Westmalle dubbel and tripel. The monks allegedly drink it as table beer, which is a fitting use of this brew.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle shared at Borefts Basecamp, Utrecht - many thanks to Jan for trading me this one. Pours mostly clear yellow with a fine, white foam head. Dried out dough in the nose, moderate yeast, very subtle funky hay. Medium sweet flavor with more dry dough, straw, yeasty pale bread. Medium bodied with fine, creamy carbonation. Quite clean to finish with still more dried out dough character, some wheat, dry yeast, white bread. Quite drinkable. Nice.

Aroma: Mild aroma of lemon cake, straw and yeast.
Appearance: Hazy pale golden body with a thin white head. Lively carbonation. Light lacing.
Taste: Light caramel, pepper and pear notes. Very subtle and easy drinking.
Palate: Medium body with a light, oily texture. Fizzy carbonation.
Overall: This is a tasty understated beer, but the Westmalle Tripel has much more flavour and character.

33CL bottle at home, damn what an ordeal to get this beer, but it’s worth it, decent beer, clear golden beer with a white head, aroma is decent, taste is light bitter with a bit more bitterness at the end, good beer but there are better beers out there but I wouldn’t say no if I got the change to drink it again.
