Odd and I think it. Very light on the palate. Brown sugar and molasses without the heaviness. Floral and some sweet. A bit of haze in the orange brown color. Tap

2.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 5/20
I tried a bottle which was over a year past it’s "best before" date. That said, this was the first Belgian ale I’ve ever tried that was completely unpleasant. The "very complex recipe" resulted in a very complex mess of a flavor, at least when over a year past expiration. Leather, spruce, and citrus were the predominant flavors, with an almost burnt caramel malt. Most disagreeable. My score would be lower, but I have to make allowance for the past-expiration condition.

330ml bottle bought from a shop in Bruges. Pours a pretty hazy light Amber with cream coloured head that is pretty stable. Aroma is yeast, hops, a little alcohol and pine. Lovely smooth texture. Yeasty, followed by hops. Finish is relatively balanced between sweet caramel and tart hops.

4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Tripel fatta molto bene! Colore ambrato con schiuma bianca aderente. Al naso floreale e fruttata. In bocca ben bilanciata con acidità, dolcezza ed amarezza molto equilibrate. Sapore fruttato molto gradevole e finalmente persistente. La bassa gradazione alcolica considerando il suo stile la rende molto beverina.

Yellow body with a thick white cap. Belgian yeast, floral notes, fruity esters. Light sweetness. Medium bodied. Perhaps a hint of lemon and assorted light citrus. Bready with soft carbonation. Pretty good.

Strange beer in the way that it is hard to point what it smell and what it taste. A great beer to try and to open a degustation session.
