Pours nice in haze orange style with a rather small nose (perhaps a little cold yet) some yeast is present. Taste is rich and herbal with spicy notes and malty. Hopas are not overwhelming but still gives a little bitterness. docskalski (13) - California, USA - SEP 6, 2015
This beer seems to be one that is very palate specific. I love this, but my wife is not quite as keen.
Pour: This beer pours a hazy golden with a really thin white head. The carbonation both here and on the palate is perhaps a bit less than I would like, but it’s not a big sticking point for me.
Nose: At the first introduction to the nose this reminded me of a yellow or orange colored fruit, such as peach with pineapple and a hint of cherimoya (which may be the banana esters coming through). It is a warm aroma, with a moderate amount of booziness as would be expected with a Tripel. The smell is predominately sweet; I would have preferred a bit more aroma hop, perhaps something like Kent Golding would do the trick.
Tongue: The aroma of fruit carries through to the palate, but introduces quite a bit more complexity with flavors of traditionally risen bread on a background of delicately flavored noble hops which trail indistinguishably into long notes desserty alcohol and the light burn expected with a tripel. There is an undertone of acidity however which I find a bit odd.
Mouth feel: This ale fills the mouth with a luxurious gelato quilt of silky and savory textures that enhance the favor profile which is only mildly complex, enriching the experience to a delightful play between taste and texture.
Overall: I’m biased because this brew is reminiscent of another discontinued ale that I find exquisitely tailored to my palate, however I would contend that this is still a finely crafted tripel that will satisfy the palate of beer lovers, belgian beer lovers, and beer avoiders alike. I may use this as an introduction to beer for my friends who "don’t like beer," as there is a beer for everyone IMO. There is definitely room for improvement, but I will certainly buy it again.

Bottle, 22oz. A hazy, orange-golden beer topped by a small, dense, light beige to off-white head. The aroma is lightly spiced, with alcohol, white sugar and a generic fruityness and some pine cones. It’s full-bodied, effervescent and still soft, sweet in the flavor but still dry, and with a nice bitterness, a tad too much alcohol burn and a mostly fruity flavor. Some pine cones and spiced hints. Lasting fruity, sugary, spiced and bitter finish. A bit too warm this one, but nice anyway. 150610 Meilby (11739) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUN 10, 2015

Bomber. Belgian yeasty aroma with notes of coriander, clove and citrus. Pours cloudy golden colored with a thin off white head and no lacing, but has pretty good retention. Starts with Belgian yeast flavor and a bit of banana. Finishes slightly dry with the above spices coming through at the very end with sweet banana flavor sticking to the palate. Decent tripel.
