APPEARANCE: clear blond beer, nice stable white head.

TASTE: grains, herbs Usko (171) - Bavaria, GERMANY - OCT 20, 2013
Hazy, golden color, white head. Aroma is cheesy, fruity, grass and garlic. Taste starts sweet, shows then citral notes, combined with an herbal aroma. MaartenRF10 (1959) - Wageningen, NETHERLANDS - OCT 14, 2013
Slightly hazy amber, white head. Strong sweet caramel aroma. Taste is sweet caramel and hop bitterness, quite some alcohol as well. fkoolen (1400) - Maastricht, NETHERLANDS - AUG 25, 2013
Nice golden colour with a slim head. Medium carbonation. Nose isn?t too special with mostly malts. Taste is complex with a nice amount of bitterness, sweet and sour fruits, herbs, malts and just a hint of alcohol. Enjoyable body. Not your average abbey-triple but an interesting beer.

Blonde légèrement trouble, bulles fines pour pétillance moyenne, peu de mousse. Bien équilibrée avec une amertume un peu plus prononcée. Un rien sucrée, notes fruitées et épicées, l’alcool se fait sentir sur la fin.

(Bottle, 0.33 l - BBE 11/05/13, at Cafe Thembi, 20130605) The beer poured golden and hazy. Its head was quite large and white. Aroma had fruitiness, tangerine and honey. Palate was medium bodied with medium carbonation. Flavours were fruitiness, citricness, hops, sweetness, honey and bitterness. Aftertaste was hoppy and bitter. A nice hoppy tripel. I didn’t notice the garlic at all. WesKBob (563) - Bethany, Oklahoma, USA - MAY 17, 2013
Pours a clear golden-orange color, darker than most tripels. Medium white head with good retention and lacing. High carbonation was very apparent with the amount of small bubbles in the beer. Aroma is yeast, floral hops and coriander. Flavor is similar--crisp sweetness from crystal malt to go along with the yeasty and floral notes. Medium bodied, high carbonation. Masks the alcohol well. Not the greatest tripel I’ve ever had but a very nice beer. Mr_Vogel (56) - NETHERLANDS - MAY 6, 2013
On tap at Take One, Maastricht.
Good colour, decent head with so-so retention. Lovely yeasty aroma and a well-balanced bitterness all around. Alcohol is not hidden – and that’s not a bad thing! The beer develops little complexity with some spicy notes. Yet, the bitterness remains dominant. Nice aftertaste. Overall a lovely tripel. mutz (1144) - NETHERLANDS - APR 27, 2013
Ziet er goed uit, mooie plakkerige kraag. Weinig aroma, smaakt vrij zoet, wat fruit in de nasmaak, weinig koolzuur en een wat vlak mondgevoel. Dit is geen gedenkwaardige tripel. jgb9348 (6581) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - MAR 7, 2013
Hazy golden coloured body with a bright copper coloured glow, a thin one centimetre tall off-white head and a zillion super small bubbles really slowly rising to the top. Aroma of yeast, more yeast and bread, a bit of curacao, some caster sugar, a hint of alcohol and some fruits. Medium-bodied; Assertive effervescence, a lot of oranges and curacao, some raisin sweetness, a good alcohol bite and a noticeable alcohol burn at the end. Aftertaste shows some complexity, but largely focused on the wheat, yeast, alcohol and citrus notes. Overall, a decent trip, but nothing compared to some other belgies and of course, some more accessible beers here stateside. Still nice to try of course, but if I knew about this prior to buying the beer, I would have packed something else in my suitcase. I sampled this 33 cL stubby bottle purchased from Beer Mania in Bruxelles, Belgium on 30-June-2012 for €2,99 sampled at home in Washington on the other side of the pond on 07-March-2013, with a date on the bottle of 13-January-2013.
