Bottled sample via lubiere. Dark gold in colour with fairly strong carbonation. Aromas are of pale malts, orange marmalade, yeast, apricot candy, a hint of caramel and a bit of rust on the back end. Firm pilsner malts upfront in the mouth, followed up by some strong stewed berry and stone fruits. The finish is crisp with a minerally bitterness. Medium bodied for a tripel, which is still fairly light. A bit long in the tooth, but still drinking fairly well. Christian (13670) - Odense, DENMARK - MAR 1, 2009
Cloudy golden with a lasting white head. Fruity aroma of pineapple and orange, and a touch of bubblegum. Sweetish but balanced fruity flavour with some candy sugar. .

Bottle. An almost clear, golden-orange beer with an off-white head and some micro sized floaties. Fruity nose with some sweetness and a spicy touch. Sugary, fruity and citrusy flavor with some bitterness. Full-bodied, effervescent and slightly warming mouthfeel. The finish is fruity and sweet. A decent beer, quite well-tasting, but also a bit boring. (081003) gunnfryd (14895) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - NOV 2, 2008

Lovely murky orange-apricot body. Fluffy white head that went away slowly. Sourish agrumey yeasty nose, some dust. Hm. Light, slightly sourish and dusty taste, some sweet maltiness. Slightly vinuous later on Balanced but a bit too light and no real typical Tripel flavors except maybe some weak agrumes. All too ordinary for the style.
