It is slightly different bitter, its Iceland Moss bitter that goes in boiling water to make tea against symptoms for cough. Alcohol doesn’t bite, slighty sweet plum or white grapes taste as is the smell but the bitterness really hangs on to every tastebud, it is ok at the beginning, nicer at the end if moss-tea is Your thing.

Blonde claire, pétillance aussi fine que sa mousse. Epicée, florale, un rien fruitée, pétillance persistante, légère astringence sur la fin. Un peu trop de goût d’alcool...

33 cl bottle. Hazy yellow with a huge white head. Spiced, slight acidic and yeasty aroma. Taste has caramel, malts and yeast. One of the better tripels out there.

Very golden and light colored with a very foamy white head. Smells like dark fruits. Taste follows the smell. Very citrus, dark fruit, and light malt. Can’t believe how deceiving the color is from how full the body is. Unbelievable beer, highly recommended, again hats off to the monks

Al naso non esalta come altre triple ma in bocca ha una complessitá eccezionale rimanendo comunque equilibrata. Sentori di pane, erbacea, finale gradevolmente alcolico. Unica.

Excellent Trippel......goes surprisingly well with many foods! Given its’ 9.5% strength, this is very much a sipping beer. Complex and full of flavours, difficult to pin down. Some Belgian restaurants will serve this as an alternative to wine with a meal, a role it performs admirably, as it keeps flavour well in the glass. Be sure to acquire the matching glass.....one of the very best!!

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle @ home, picked up at Wilbur’s Fort Collins. Just around a year old. Pours a hazy yellow orange appearance with a big, foamy white head. Fairly pungent floral, spicy bready yeasty, dull citrusy, herbal aroma. Quite tangy, big tangerine citrus fruity, chewy/bready yeasty, mild banana, big bubblegum, very spicy flavor. I should be picking up more of these in the future.

330ml bottle into a goblet.
Pours a hazy straw yellow with a HUGE three finger billowy white head. Absolutely amazing head retention and gobs of lacing once the head finally does fade.
Incredible aroma of yeast and clove along with peaches and some bubblegum. Quite spicy but light and almost tropical at the same time. There is some light bread and vanilla as well. A touch of dark fruit and flowers.
Flavor of clove and peaches along with coriander and orange peel. More vanilla and tropical fruit along with a very light touch of biscuit. More perfume and flowers along with a breath of alcohol leading to a warmth in the chest. Very dry mouthfeel that finishes with just a slight bit of stickyness.
Overall, this is perhaps the benchmark for the Tripel style and an absolutely amazing beer. Truly perfection in every sense of the word and world-class.
