On tap at ’t Arendsnest. Hazy, pale golden with a lacing head. Fruity aroma. Some spicy flavours, but overall a very complex fruity palate. A very well-made tripel. sjogro (5116) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - DEC 17, 2015

0.33 l bottle, thanks hanniku and Tbone! Hazy deep golden color. Thick sweet aroma of toffee, bread and tart fruity alcohol. Sweet flavor with tart alcohol, toffee, honey, raisins and berries (raspberry?). Full bodied. Hard to say whether I like this or not. Complex taste but also very boozy and tart.

Poured an orange/amber with a small off white head. Aroma of spices, sweet candy, caramel malt. Medium to full body, favour as the aroma, some liquorice, bitter sweet end. Martinus (4741) - Baarle-Nassau, NETHERLANDS - MAY 17, 2011
Bit unclear warm golden colour, small white head.
Aroma of malts, straw, coriander seeds, some apple and a bit of sweet acetone (but not in an offending way). Flavour of rounded malts (three grains it says on the bottle), good hoppy keynote, spicy, but no real noticeable coriander. Think I prefer it that way. Good tripel character, well rounded, balanced. Medium to long finish with sweet malts and a good hop tone. Well made beer, nice one. Cheers for Jopen and the Proefbrouwerij.

donker gouden helder met schuimige witte kraagMrHangover (4693) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - JUL 24, 2011
aroma: zeer beperkt, maar wat vooral opviel was een zuurtje
smaken: matig zoet, matig bitter, laurierdrop, vanille, metalig, bier is zacht, redelijk gebalanceerd, zwakke body, dun van textuur
persoonlijk vind ik de laurier en de overige kruiden het bier iets overheersen.
How I was looking forward to try this one. And I wasn’t disappointed. Nice murky golden colour with a bit of sediment in the bottom of the bottle. Aroma has hints of grapes, wheat and malt. Alcohol is covered in the aroma but warming in the flavour. Flavour is incredibly citrus and typical for a good tripel, the grains make it a bit more dry and sweet. Good find.
