Poured from a 750ML bottle into a pint glass at the World of Beer in Cary, NC. This beer has a great dark golden color that is slightly murky with a large white head. the aroma is full of fruit and spice and is outstanding. The flavor matches the aroma and it is one of the best tripels I have had.

O: The star of the night!! ttoadee (1477) - Austin, Texas, USA - JUL 11, 2015
Cloudy, light brown pour, no head (even with encouragement). Nose is cherry, yeast, and booze. Middle is caramelized grain and some spice. Finish is orange and alcohol. Just OK.

Beerfest Asia, Singapore on 25/06/15. 50cl corked bottle, shared. Hazy golden colour with a small off-white head. Aroma of malt, fruit, some spices, but sweet. Floral notes on tasting, with an overpowering sweetness. Yeast and fruit in the background. Just too sweet to be enjoyed - I like candy, and I like beer, but not together! Tastes like a sweet sparkling wine. XCaellaX (27) - Bramois, SWITZERLAND - JUN 2, 2015
50cl bottle from FreshChoice Roslyn, NZ. Hazy yellow/gold color with an average white head. Aroma: lightly malty, spices, alcohol, sugar. Flavor: moderate sweet. Medium body, oily without carbonation. (Bad) Alcohol/phenol finish. Not a good triple... UXO (1896) - CANADA - MAY 28, 2015
Pours hazy medium gold with one finger of rocky white head, good retention and lacing. (3/5) Nose is yeasty, dark fruit, caramel/toffee malt, banana and clove. (5/10) Taste is moderate sweet, very mild bitter. (5/10) Medium to full body, prickly carbonation, off-dry boozy finish. (3/5)
Meh. Slightly past its best before, OK, but I dunno how much better it would be fresh. This is the type of triple I don’t really prefer: malt-forward and fuller-bodied, instead of crisp and dry. The ABV is intrusively present as well, with the heat feeling like an unbalanced afterthought. Couldn’t be bothered to finish it. (10/20) Homebrewilly (8) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - MAY 25, 2015 does not count
UPDATED: JUN 12, 2015 Hazy in appearance with yeast at bottom. Smells like bananas and bread. A strong taste of bananas up front and in after taste. Very little clove flavour. Bready with a slight sour dough taste. Little to no hop flavour. Nice mouth feel. Slight alcohol warmth. For $6.99 NZ for a 500ml bottle at 9.5% this is a very good deal! tombutlin (313) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - MAY 17, 2015
Very disappointing. I guess I’m not the target market, being a hop-head, but this was barely drinkable. Sickly sweet and caramel flavours with dominant alcohol. Tasted like Lion Red spiked with a double shot of cheap vodka. Looked great, but that’s all.
