caralkaline87 (435) - Washington DC, USA - MAY 9, 2013
Pours blonde with a quick white head; nose is fruity with a touch of booze but not particularly deep. Flavor is also disappointing in its simplicity and reliance on alcohol for flavor; this is too high for tripel, and simply too boring. Overall its a decent brew, but I expect a lot more for a legit belgian tripel and for the price tag.

Demens (322) - Budapest, HUNGARY - JAN 14, 2017
0,33l bottle. Cloudy golden colour with quickly disappearing white head. Aroma: Floral, honey with leather notes and biscuit caracter. Taste: Sweet start with a lots of almond caracter. Has a light bitter mouthfeel. Its tasty but a bit easy for the style. The alcohol isnt in the taste but you can definitely feel the 11%. Medium/full body with fizzy carbonation. Medium lasting light bitter finish. Not the best and definitely not the most complex tripel.

Zarrach76 (122) - Grenoble, FRANCE - JAN 10, 2017
Belle blonde diaphane, dore et translucide, avec une grosse mousse blanche paisse monte centrale... Nez sur le caramel, les crales chaudes, de bons malts, lamande, le pamplemousse, le pomelo, le citron vert, le raisin, la prune, la pomme verte, lalcool (11% of course !), la coriandre, le romarin, le bois rsineux, le chocolat au lait... Nez simple mais bien structur, clairement celui dune bonne blonde triple. En bouche, carbonatation moyenne, texture soyeuse, alcool solide mais en souplesse malgr les 11 volts de tension sur la ligne... Les saveurs sont trs douces, rondes, lamertume est lgre, trs contrle. Les crales torrfies prennent clairement le pas sur les armes houblonns. Une bire presque fminine, dlicate. Le palet est vraiment flatt, cajol. Le final est long, sur lalcool (enfin !) avec des armes de liqueur fine, et sur lamertume (aaah, quand mme !) et les aromates. Toujours cette douceur en bouche, agrable, enivrante, voir mme envoutante... Une structure simple tous les niveaux, mais une trs bonne bire, tout simplement. A dguster en coutant "Comfortably Numb" des Pink Floyd... Je reprendrais un bon solo de guitare avec plaisir ! Bouteille 33cl, V&B Grenoble.

ManVsBeer (8934) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JAN 6, 2017
Bottle from Nisa, Hebden Bridge. Amber with a small head. Has a heavy sugary nose, with a lighter sugary-sweetness in its taste. Its not as strong tasting as you might expect, so theres some pale malts to be found too.

Bottle - clear light orange, full frothy head, high carbonation. Strong fruity aroma. Ting on tongue and in mouth - too much. Better aroma than taste.
