MatChar (125) - Quebec, CANADA - JAN 28, 2018
UPDATED: JAN 29, 2018 Bottle (xx-xx-xx). Appearance: very nice hazy lightly orangey yellow, thick white foam getting rather quickly into thin laces, low to medium carbonation. Smell: nice fruity esters, with low to no hops. Taste: notes of apricot, mango, pineapple and perhaps bananas, medium bitterness and low to medium sugar, good texture but a bit less drinkable than I remembered from past years, most likely due to boozy feel. Overall: above average take on a great style, awesome aromatic profile, but a bit too boozy. tderoeck (10913) - Gent, BELGIUM - JAN 12, 2018
16/X/17 - 341ml bottle from Geers (Oostakker), shared @ home - BB: 19/XII/16 (or was this bottle date? Probably, cause it only showed up on the shelves in July 2017) (2017-1793) GarageBrewer80 (744) - SWEDEN - DEC 6, 2017
Clear blond to orange beer, big creamy off-white head, irregular bit stable, adhesive, leaving some lacing in the glass. Aroma: pretty fruity start, yeast, some banana, sweet malts. MF: soft carbon, medium body. Taste: very sweet and sugary malts, some strawberry jam, soft bitterness, alcohol, some tropical fruits, grapefruit touch. Aftertaste: bitter, sweet malts, caramel, alcohol, some citrus, fruity, bit sugary, jam. More of a young barley wine than a Tripel, if you ask me. Misses the typical Belgian (banana) yeast profile to be classified as a Tripel.
UPDATED: DEC 6, 2017 Flaska inköpt i Rom. Disig, bärnstensfärgad med vit skumkrona. Doft av knäck, torkad frukt, multna löv, äppelkompot och choklad. Söt, lite spritig och brännande munkänsla. Smak av knäck, torkade frukter, mjölkchoklad, portvin och lite dill. kepano (284) - Los Angeles, California, USA - OCT 22, 2017
Pours with virtually no head. A few big bubbles over a viscous, resiny amber color. The aroma is distinctive and nothing like a typical tripel. Juicy hops that suggest pineapple, orange and passion fruit. Subtle depth comes from burnt caramel and peppery spice. Wow. Super herbaceous on the tongue. The bitterness is not aggressive but approaches you from all sides. A combination of grapefruity hops, burnt sugar and dry spices create a rather medicinal brew. Heavy sweetness is present in the form of molasses and mango chutney, but counterbalanced by slight saltiness and herbal flavors of rosemary and bay leaf. A very odd brew, but curiosity keeps me coming back for another sip. Finishes on a strong peppery note. The strange combination of flavors harmonize surprisingly well. A fun beer to have when you're in the mood for something different. jinroh (2571) - ESTONIA - AUG 27, 2017
Yellow, slight haze. Bit of white foam. Sweet Belgian yeast nose, honey and grains. Slight sour edge there. Decently hopped so the sweetness is well covered and drinks much smoother than I expected. Nice herbal sweet-dry finish. Well done, tripel I can drink.

Very nice hoppy aroma and some yeast. Very nice firm white head. Creamy head. Very nice palate. Very creamy. Nice balance hop and yeast in taste. Very smooth. Nearly too smooth? Strykzone (7848) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - AUG 6, 2017
Bottle. Looks like a Belgian with that bright orange gold hue. Hazy and sporting a larger almost white head. Active carbonation rises slowly. A rich fruity and yeasty aroma. Feel is also rich. That rich fruit is tasted along with alcohol. Bread and yeast are prominent. Toffee, tangerine. There is a lot to ferment here. Good. ardeo (633) - Flémalle, BELGIUM - AUG 1, 2017
UPDATED: DEC 4, 2017 Bottle 341 ml. Belle couleur or et mousse convenable. Nez bien belge pour une canadienne avec levures, pain, citron. Middle carbonation. Bouche un peu raide : du sucre, du biscuit, du citron et de l’orange, d’autres fruits, un peu de vegetable, de spices & alcohol. Bière équilibrée malgré l’alcool qui se sent assez fort avec une moyenne amertume. Bref : castard mais sympa. AleRider78 (1516) - Winchester, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 30, 2017
Pours a small amount of foamy beige head that doesn’t stay very long. Ok lacing as a result. Has a slightly cloudy golden appearance. Aromas of exotic fruits, strong citrus hops, breads and sweet malts. Flavours of oranges and mangoes are noticeable. Has a bit of that citrus tang. Also floral hops and definitely some spices. Even a bit yeasty. Grapefruits flavour in the finish. Warm and tingling sensation. Nice bitterness. A bit of a wet mouthfeel. The fruitiness masks the alcohol feel quite a bit which is a good thing. Good stuff! carlom (124) - ITALY - MAY 28, 2017
Colore giallo leggermente torbida, schiuma media persistente, al naso prevalenza di malto e luppoli, coriandolo. Al palato agrumi, coriandolo, frutta, albicocca, crosta di pane. Corpo pieno,bevuta dolce con retrogusto amaro. Un ’ottimo equilibrio tra i malti di una tripel e l’amaro dei luppoli di una ipa che nasconde un elevato grado alcolico.
