COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Mainly available Bottle Conditioned. Has appeared on cask occasionally.
Full bodied Maris Otter malt with a small addition of wheat and Vienna malt are aromatised by a typical Belgian charge of coriander. The result is a smooth, sweetish, luscious and fruity experience. The peach and orange notes of the malt base are enhanced by the judicious use of a single American hop, centennial. A very satisfying beer with a Belgian character.

BlazerT (733) - Sosnowiec, POLAND - SEP 8, 2016
Bottle. Sensoric. Deep amber, medium hazy with big, white head. Medicore head retention and lacing. Aroma is candy, yeasty with nice accents of dried fruits (pear, orange) with nice ready and marmalade malty aromas, also some coriander. Taste is semi-sweet to sweet, nicely spiced, just a touch of bitterness. Full body, thick texture, average carbonation, finish is fruity and semi-sweet, ABV is lightly noticeable. In general decent beer, maybe not 100 percent triple, but nice, malty beer fortified with Belgian yeasts.

labeerinthum (660) - Milano, ITALY - JUL 29, 2016
Bottiglia. Il gusto al naso ritrova percezioni di arancia e di coriandolo. Lintensit olfattiva elevata e la persistenza olfattiva apprezzabile. Il cappello di schiuma cremosa, dalla buona tenuta, persistente e voluminosa. Fortunatamente in etichetta si viene avvertiti che una birra viva e si consiglia di tenere vicino un bicchiere pronto per il disgorgare della schiuma, ed infatti appena aperta la bottiglia un intero bicchiere si riempie di schiuma, a bollicine medie. La consistenza del liquido limpida. La grandezza delle bollicine media. La carbonazione abbondante, vivace, persistente ed insistita. Il colore giallo ambrato. Il corpo strutturato pesante. Lamaro deciso. Lintensit gustativa elevata e la persistenza gustativa buona. Le sensazioni boccali finali sono luppolate e di birra impegnativa per avere un etilico e alcol invadente che si avvicina al whisky. Il finale amarognolo e secco. Il retrogusto intenso e persistente. Laroma in bocca riporta sentori di miele, frutta secca, resina e lievito.

edsspoon (884) - Nottinghamshire, ENGLAND - APR 25, 2016
Bottle shared at home - erupted once opened so unfortunately 1/3 of this ended up on my bar top and in the washing up bowl. In spite of that it poured a clear golden with a fizzy, lively white head which quickly faded away. Aroma of alcohol, orange and lemon with a hint of coriander. Taste is sweet with orange and lemon again. Light body, prickly carbonation and warming.

Hazy amber appearance. Small head, which quickly disappears. Tingling effervescence on the palate. Sharp, slightly bitter taste. With a bitter grapefruit like aftertaste. This is a really good 9% beer.

Idiosynkrasie (6857) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - NOV 29, 2015
500ml bottle. Murky amber colour with small to average, frothy, rapidly diminishing, off-white head. Sweet-ish, fruity and slightly bready-grainy aroma, notes of dried fruit, apple, fig, apricot, raisin, hints of baked red appple, a peppery spicy (yeasty) touch. Taste is sweet caramel malty, slightly bready, minimally alcoholic, fruity notes of dried apple, fig, apricot; counterbalanced by a minimally tart fruit acidic touch; viscid, but in no way sticky palate. Rich, flawless, decent Triple.

Hippoman (646) - Durham, ENGLAND - NOV 19, 2015
500ml Bottle from the brewery. Pours hazy honey-colour with a very thin, bubbly, off-white head and soft to moderate carbonation. The nose is slightly sweet and predominantly malty with hints of toffee a definite boozy character, and lots of coriander. Herbal coriander flavour comes through too in the flavour as part of a well balanced bittersweet taste. The finish is long and dry to the point of being a little astringent. Loads of Belgian style malt action but as a whole it avoids being too sweet. Another real winner from Durham. 3.7

As a non-lover of tripels this one has to be one of the best ones I have had in a very long time. Spicy, different, warming, great. Gift from uckelman
