I-need-to-get-rid-of-those-mediocre-beers tasting session. Orange/golden coloured, small dying head. Orange and some other fruit in aroma. Spicy and dry flavour. This is exactly the kind of tripel i don’t like. eManu (544) - Kuala Lumpur & Brussels, BELGIUM - MAR 13, 2009
Pours a hazy gold color with a nice think head that stay a long time. Aroma of citrus and malts. Flavors are of citrus and specially grapfruits with vanilla and malts. Quite a refrshing beer with a somewhat dry ending. Yves (3042) - Turnhout, BELGIUM - MAR 12, 2009

draught at Zythos beerfest 2009, sweet nose not so good beer a bit aniseed but no great taste sheatripper (863) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - MAR 1, 2009
33 cl. bottle into Duvel glass. Cloudy amber orange with a craggy almond color head. Aroma of dusty hay, floral hop and fruity notes and a touch of yeast. Bready and biscuity malts, slightly sweet with a bubblegum fruitiness. Some fresh grass and a touch of green grape tartness as well. The spice character was a bit on the timid side, I thought. Needed an extra peppery nudge to really create an ideal balance. Otherwise enjoyable.

12 oz bottle shared by Chuck Cook. Thanks!
Pours a nice medium to light gold with a nice frothy lasting white head. Aroma is very herbal, green and hoppy- almost a lemony citrus hint as well, along with a good bready almost tart pils malt backbone. Doughy and fresh bread for malt, spicy ligth peppery phenolics, orange citrus zest, adn nice floral and herbal hops with a crisp moderate bitterness. Pretty good overall. mwelsh13 (499) - Maryland, USA - FEB 7, 2009
Bottle poured straw color with alot of carbonation. Sweet aroma with some yeast and bubble gum. Very easy drinking for 7.5%. A good amount of caramel sweetness with even some marshmallow like flavors in there too. Very nice beer. DruncanVeasey (8226) - NUNEATON, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - JAN 14, 2009
Bottle from under the stairs. Sweet honeyed malt and light coniferous hop aroma dragging in a surprising tang of gelatinous citrus, mouldering orange peel, a snort of mango, definite noble garden herbs as it warms. Quite a big sprinkle of aniseed come to think of it, but integrated. Pine, vanilla, hop fruit. Crystal to muddy orange amber depending on your preference; fine blanketed white froth with archipelagoes (hiccup) of lace. Quite a looker. High condition, fat creamy body. Robust herbaceous spruce beneath jelly citrus and yeast. Body really plumping up now I’ve tipped the bits in. Creamy slick palate, masterly fine carbonation like silk. Slightly offputting TCP notes, but probably wholesome and hop-derived. Enjoyable, solidly hopped, hairs-on-your-chest Tripel. Like it. BoBoChamp (5755) - Gent, BELGIUM - JUL 27, 2008
