Tasted on tap in a fluted tulip at Three Kings, thanks Brett! It poured a slightly hazy golden colour with thick, creamy, long lasting white foam and lace. Grainy, reminiscent of crackers and freshly baked French bread, tart and fruity, faint noble hops balance, with strong Belgian yeast notes: fruity, spicy, peppery. Despite the light colour, there were nonetheless subtle and complex malty and caramelly notes. I swear even hints of Brett, reminiscent of Goose Island Matilda or a well-aged Orval. Tart and slightly barn-yardy. Light body, strong carbonation, dry finish, highly "digestive." Really delicious. madmitch76 (24807) - , Essex, ENGLAND - MAY 29, 2013

’Paul takes a brown shower’ tasting at Bruce’s pad. Hazy gold beer, little white head. Light palate, dry with prickly carbonation. Sweetish malt, vague touch of honey. Typical tripel spice. Light ripe fruits in the background. Dry finish. Okay.
This was courtesy of Strykzone. Thanks Dave. Pours hazy gold with a white head. Good lacing. Nose of tropical fruit with pineapple for sure. Medium body Flavor is pineapple and other fruits such as banana. The finish is very flavorful. Very easy drinking. Delicious. DavoleBomb (1867) - Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 25, 2013
Poured into a goblet.
3.0 A: Moderately hazed yellow wheat color. Just a whisp of fizzy white head formed then fell just as quickly.
4.0 S: This is a nice, earthy tripel. Not overly fruity like some - just right. Honey, pepper and clove spiciness dominate the nose. Hay and grassy hoppiness. Lightly floral with a dirty earthiness that I like a lot. Mildly yeasty. Overall, solid.
3.5 T: Like the nose, this is earthy and spicy. Honey, pepper, and clove are again the leading flavors. Hay, grassy, flowers, earth to follow. Not a lot of complexity, but what is there is done quite well.
4.0 M: Light to lighter medium body. Good carbonation level for the style, but on the lower end. Spritzy, light, and fluffy. Good here.
3.5 D: Good overall effort. Lacking in the complexity department, but other than that I have no complaints.

This an excellent tripe,. Looks and smells light. The flavor is simple but easy to drink and tasty. Nothing out of the ordinary but done well.

Draft @ Sunset Grill and tap. Tulip shows a completely hazy bright gold. Retention for days, sheets down the glass. Big aroma of fruity esters of cloves, bananas and pears. The flavor features the yeast. Again mostly banana, sweet pears, sweet malt / bread and candi sugar. Mild hop bitterness and a dry finish. Chewy thicker body. ABV is hidden well. Overall this is well above average in style regardless of what others say. I would drink this any day of the week. Not sure how it translates into a bottle but I was happy with it on draft!

Pas mal sur le style, mince en bouche et pas mal sucré. La levure belge est bien contenue mais les saveurs sont un peu grossière comparativement aux versions classiques. glennmastrange (2868) - hobe sound, Florida, USA - FEB 7, 2013
Bottle. Moderate grain and cereal for the malt, light to moderate perfume for the hops, light soap for the yeast, with pear and pepper in the background. Head is average size, frothy, slightly off-white with good lacing and is mostly diminishing. Color is murky medium amber. Flavor starts moderately sweet and lightly acidic, then finishes lightly sweet and moderately bitter. Palate is medium, slick with a soft to lively carbonation, and a lightly alcoholic finish. A very tasty beer, reminds me of Springtime. Maybe not as Tripel-ish as the standard, but enough so to deserve it’s high score. Darwenus (1135) - Virginia, USA - FEB 4, 2013
The color is nothing special, it’s yellow and hazy with a medium head. The aroma is fairly standard for a triple, bananas and citrus and a little bit of hops, with that usual, mildly cabbage-like tone in the background. The taste is pretty good. There’s enough malt in the finish to surprise me a little bit. Overall, no better than the Trader Joe’s Belgian I bought on the same day, but it cost a hell of a lot more than the Trader Joe’s did.
