3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Taster at Balthazar. Blond/hay, quickly fading white head, quite hazy. Aroma is really somewhere between citrus, grass and ammonia (!). Not sure if the latter is good. Taste is pretty .... actually surprisingly straightforward, when considering the rest : there is honey, raisins, hay and fruit esters.... pretty much everything for everyone, not just sure if everything blends that well. The key here is the palate -- it would seem like the finish hits really early (... and extremely dry), but then the post-finish (!!!) hits with some really subtle, but extremely pleasant cherry notes. All in all -- nor for anyone, and a bit of a letdown considering it’s DDC, but still a rather good and very complex brew.
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. 90 (726) - BELGIUM - AUG 8, 2017
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 (7556) - 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 (508) - Flémalle, BELGIUM - AUG 1, 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 : un peu de sucre, du biscuit, du citron et de l’orange, d’autres fruits, un peu de vegetable, de spices & alcohol. Beer �quilibr�e malgr� l’alcool qui se sent assez fort avec une moyenne amertume. Bref : castard mais sympa. AleRider78 (1409) - 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!

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. wombat23 (1665) - Texas, USA - MAY 27, 2017

Aroma: interesting; almost like the yeasty smell in a brewery; addition of some kind of vegetable - can’t place it; Appearance: hazy golden pour with creamy white head that lingers; Taste: sour, funky, lemony with some coriander; not my favorite; Palate: medium body with long, spicy finish; Overall: can appreciate it but wouldn’t want again. onceblind (10295) - Denver, Colorado, USA - MAY 25, 2017

Full Belgian pale malty flavor with a kiss of semisweet candi sugar tones, with sage and some other herbal tones I can’t put my finger on.
