Thank you deanso. 750 ml. bottle sampled @ Pre-Borefts Ratebeer Tasting 2016. Murky orange, off-white head. Nose is weird honey cereal, sweet malty, reabd, sugar, yeast, interesting honey cereal but rather messy also. Taste is basic sweet malts, honey, yeast, sugar, lightly dull, basic yeast, sweet malt. Body is honey, malt, basic chestnut. Messy but good sweet malts partially hold it together.

33cl bottle. Despite all the not-so-great opinions and surprisingly low score I find it unfair since it’s a decent beer. Maybe the other batches went infected or who knows what. Fresh aroma of pepper, lemon zest, a bit of cat piss but not off, white cheese, grains. Well carbonated but not over. Watery and creamy body. Dry with grains, soms little spiciness and good balanced herbal/spicy bitterness. Not a bad brew for refreshment ...I drink it at a proper , warm weather.

I don´t like tripels but this one is not bad. There is nothing special about it but also nothing wrong with it. Nice beige head that slowly disappears to keep just a little. Hazy golden. Cannot say anything specific about taste, cannot feel anything. But for a triple it is not bad :-)

Flesje van de biologische toko. Buiten bij het vuur, dus uiterlijk weinig idee. Vrij licht geloof ik. Aroma fruitig. Smaak fruitig met een vleugje drop en een bittertje. Aardig.

Sicher nicht eins der besten Tripel. Relativ trocken, schmeckt es ein wenig witlastig und auch leichte Weinassoziationen kommen einen in den Sinn. Knoblauch schmeck ich nun wirklich überhaupt nicht. Desweiteren fällt die leicht wässrige "Textur" negativ auf. Zweimal in Maastrich getrunken. Vom Hahn im Cafe Take One und aus der Flasche beim CRB Gig im Muziekgieterij. Die Flaschenversion gefiel mir ein bisschen besser,
