4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Note ; previous rating here by me was a mistake and was for the brown variant .
now rating this one , so its not an updated rating, this is actual first rating .
Pours warm blonde, orange glow.
Good white head that lasts long .
Smell is tad sweet , some grains . But mostly very gentle and soft ( balanced )
Taste is bitter , some slightly, almost metallic sharpness . Some balanced sweetness in the back . Perfect carbo . The previously mentionned sharpness, lasts into a funky-sweet-unique taste which I really dig .
The drinkability in this one is extreme . Prob one of the 1 % tripels withoud a shitload of overcarbonation, ánd with a balanced taste that is sweet, yet not sugary . Its been a long time that ( if I have ever ) was this happy with a tripel ( that has not been hopped like an IPA or spiced like a white , etc ) . Basic, but very nice . Tripels never will go superhigh in my ratings, but this deserves a well-earned 100 % on style . I do not taste like 50 % of the ingredients in the description ( honey, sugar , oak ,.... ) but I guess that is because they are blended in in such a beautifull way , I guess . Very nice surprise !

Een lekker biertje dat vlot wegdrinkt en toch een uitgesproken, volle smaak heeft.

Keg at LCBF. Hazy orange, dense white head. Aroma is herbal, coriander, sweet sticky malt. Body is very foamy. Taste is spicy - lots of black pepper in particular. A nice potent flavour but it came across as a little one dimensional and foamy.

A triple? Says so on the bottle. Dark golden coloured and hazy. Has a white head, mostly lasting. Sweet, yeasty aroma, dry notes. Flavor starts sweet, sugars then lightly astringent yeasty notes and moderate hoppy. Finish bitter. Creamy, dry texture.
