A friend brought a bottle of this over last weekend. He knows I have an interest in beer, especially German, and thought I might enjoy it. This Belgian Ale looks like lemonade in the glass. It had a head that doesnt stop. I tried to pour three different glasses in 3 different controlled methods and all 3 glasses were 75% foam. Wow. Want head? get this ale. I am not a fan of all the hops OVERLOADED USA "craftie" beers. 158% hops is NOT a beer, it is some insane beer brewers idea of what THAT PERSON thinks tastes good. then they add pine cones, nutmeg, pumpkin..........really? with that said, I was not looking forward to tasting this mess. lemonade yellow? more head in one glass that I usually see in a year?
but........................................ tasted it and was glad I did. After suffering thru the Sam Adams idea of "ale" and the Brooklyn version of "ale", I had lost all interest in that style of brew. This ale from Belgium? Good. The hops was NOT overpowering (thank you) and the taste was gentle, pleasurable and delish! I was profoundly amazed to like an ale. Go soak your heads, sam and brooklyn, your ales suk. This ale? Try it. Awesome. dj110 (33) - Lome, TOGO - MAR 14, 2018
Light amber color/hazy. Pours with quite big white head, which does not last for very long. Aromas of bananas, citrus and some other characteristic for belgium yeast. In taste as in aroma, maybe with addition of some spices as cloves and a bit of black peper. Light sweetness, high carbonation, medium body. Alcohol is very well hidden. Slighty dry finish. Very drinkable, fresh, classic Tripel. mmmeinike (467) - Odense, DENMARK - MAR 11, 2018

Pours clear pale gold, big froth head. Aroma of banana, clove, bread. Taste of same with some citrus, butter, biscuit, honey, a bitter finish that isn't necessarily citrusy or pithy. Just really good golden, tripel flavors. Exp date is 8/8/18. Drank on 3/8/18. Very good. Grumpelmies (453) - GERMANY - MAR 3, 2018
UPDATED: MAR 3, 2018 Bottle. Slightly cloudy orange/yellow with a huge white head. Some lacing. Aroma of coriander, yeast, orange zest, a little bit of pear and some light metal. Taste is belgian yeast, grains and bitter oranges. Some sugar as well without being sweet. Strong carbonation. It's balanced and quite alright but I don't think it's up to par with the best Tripels.

Copenhagen 3/3 2018. 33 cl bottle from Ølhandleren in Hørning. St. Bernanardus design with green background and the usual happy monk enjoying a beer. Pours hazy golden with very big bubbly head. Settles as 1,5 cm thick layer of foam. No lacing to speak of. Aroma is intense and sweetish. Banana, citrus and light humid basement aroma. Sharper notes rumbling in the background. A little boozy. Prickly medium strong carbonation and slightly thick texture. Flavor has good balance between medium sweetness and medium bitterness. Aftertaste is strong and spicy. Lingering. Nice and characteristic Triple. Dahlstrom (462) - Nygatan 29, SWEDEN - MAR 3, 2018
UPDATED: MAR 3, 2018 33 cl bottle from Systembolaget. Light hazy yellow with a large white head. Aroma of spices, floral, yeast and grains. Taste reflects the aroma. Medium body, with a semi-dry texture. evannell (1650) - Krakï¿½w, POLAND - FEB 26, 2018
Aromat głównie drożdżowy, słodkawy, typowo belgijski. Może troszkę kukurydziany, ale nie w gotowanym wydaniu. W smaku nawet znaczna goryczka; poza tym średnio słodko, dość przyprawowo (w stronę gałki muszkatołowej), owocowo. Śladowo żelazo na początku picia. Bardzo fajne, nie zamula.
