Bottle, poured a hazy light yellow gold with small head. Some floaters, yeast and light spice. Esters and a malt smoothness with pepper and very light citrus notes. Kept a subtleness throughout and only slight bitterness, a fermented treat.

4.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Rich continental style aroma and pours yellow with a visciously bubbly thick white foam head. Incredibly rich, sweet flavour of the lager malts. Fills the mouth with rich, clean cereal flavours which complement the high alcohol taste.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Slightly hazy light golden, nice white head with good lacing. Tropical fruits, bit yeasty, sweet malts, nice bitter finish from the yeast and a touch of hops. Not very outspoken, but more complex and interesting then most in this style. I used to drink this a lot, but haven’t for a while. Just forgot how great this is.

Un bon classique de la bière Belge. Belle mousse bien compact, couleur doré "foncé". Des arômes de banane et de céréales, avec un léger goût de miel. On ne sent que très peu les 9,5 degrés d’alcool. Toujours un plaisir !

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
(33 cl bottle from Toft Vin; BBD: June 27th 2015) Pours a hazy golden with medium white head. Good retention and nice lace. Initial aroma has some refreshing green hops, which is rapidly displaced by a more yeast and spice dominated aroma that has strong ester notes with banana and some green fruit shining through. I like the aroma of this tripel pretty well although not as good as the Tripel Karmeliet I’d say it is among the best of the tripels that I have tried. Palate experience reinforces the impression as it gives an initial oily almost creamy mouthfeel with lively carbonation and a strong body followed by a long, dry aftertaste caused both by hop bitterness and alcohol. Flavour is largely like the nose with the dominant notes being those of alcohol and hops as it should be. Nicely done!

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Intense spicy (I guess coriander) and yeasty, quite fruity mostly orange, moderate maltiness, bit alco, bit honeyish. Sweet, bittersweet with notes of sour. Really great balance. Very refreshing and highly drinkable for quite complex brew.
