18/V/14 - 33cl bottle from Willems (Grobbendonk) @ home - BB: 14/II/14 (2014-507) Thanks to Beerlover_Ben for doing my shopping!
Little cloudy dark orange to amber beer, big creamy solid white head, pretty stable, bit adhesive. Aroma: bit soapy, coriander, floral, grassy touch. MF: ok carbon, medium body. Taste: sweet start, lots of orange peel, honey, bit sugary, oxidized, probably due to age so not taking that into account. Aftertaste: little bitter, honey, sugary, some orange peel, oxidized.

Bottle from Bier Paleis in Brugge. Pours hazy dark amber with a creamy off-white head. Aroma seems dark fruit. Full bodied. Flavor is malt, yeast/spice and dark fruit. All kind of "cooked". Certainly not a standard light tripel with banana ester, but pretty drinkable.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
5th And final beer in my random tasting evening 12 Aug 2011. The brown 33cl bottle had a plenty of life left when opened: poured into a Westy chalice ensuring no sediment left the bottle.
Good amber body, thick white head of bubbles, which gave lines of lacing as the beer level sank.
The smells were semi-sweet malty molasses with a mini floral feel in there somewhere.
The beer is initially sweet and hearty, becoming drier as the mouth drys between sips, the malts giving way to whatever the other ingrediants might be.
Heavy carbonisation, but not ’fizzy’, suited the flavours to be lively rather than flat-ish. The alcohol aslo fitted in well with the overall experience. A long way from a world beater, but a steady Tripel in all respects.
