4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
33 cL bottle. Pours hazy yellow with small yeast sediments and a huge white head. Spiced, slight acidic and yeasty aroma. Flavour is the pure definition of a tripel. Smooth, spiced, slight acidic note, mild caramel malt and that yummy mellow Westmalle yeast note. All in a complex yet smooth blend - with a light bite towards the finish, just telling you that this is a 9.5% alcohol beer. Fantastic.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
A hazy orange beer with a huge white head. The aroma is very spicy with notes of yeast, coriander, and orange peel. The flavor is very sweet and very spicy again with notes of the yeast, coriander, orange peel as well as the alcohol - the end is a little dry and woody. But the alcohol is not as present in the sample I’m rating since it is more than 2 years old as it is in a fresh bottle - I like the more subtle alcohol presence in the aged version best.

Bottled. Cloudy deep orange colour with big foamy head. Leaves lacing. Fruitish aroma with hints of malt and yeast. A bit weird taste, sweet and bitter at the same time and also very spicy. Alcoholic notes can also be found. Sweetish aftertaste. Very nice balance and palate.

3.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pale orange coloured, slightly hazy. Pours very lively with big airy head. Flowery yeasty aroma. Sugary, sweetish nose, funky mouthfeel, alcohol-peppery bitterish finish. Leaves a lingering candy sugar flavour in your mouth. Good? No doubt! World classic? Maybe not.

4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Aged 3 years
Hazy golden-brownish-amber color; beautiful lace.
Malty, lightly fruity aroma; flowery hop, developing in a wonderful way as the beer gets warmer in the glass; light, fragrant bread. Delicate and complex.
Full body, smooth, warming, a bit alcoholic; not syrupy but almost sweetish Tripel, with a lot of malt, light fudge; harmonious.
Very good, classic final, with fine old hops; equilibrated, persistent.
A wonderful example of Tripel.
