33cl bottle at Lazy Louie. Clear amber with a medium white head. Medium body with light to moderate carbonation. Sweet with slightly bitter notes. Caramel, fruits, herbs and warmin alcohol. A decent Belgian brew.

ellolovey (483) - Georgia, USA - JAN 21, 2014
On tap. Pale clear yellow with thick frothy white head. Aroma of Belgian yeast, sweet fruits, and bubblegum. Love this. Light on the palate. Very refreshing and warms you up without noticing. Can’t believe the ABV on this one

Christian (13002) - Odense, DENMARK - JAN 20, 2014
On tap at Christian Firtal. Hazy dark golden with a lasting white head. Bright fruity aroma of peach and pineapple along with some cane sugar notes and a touch of alcohol. Sweet fruity flavour with some alcohol and a bit of hops in the finish.

JustDrinkIt (261) - Arizona, USA - JAN 18, 2014
Burnt orange pour, average white head. Aroma of aging fruit, yeast. Flavor is more of the same, strong spicy yeast, candied fruit. Bottle is past ’best by’ date, still quite good, will compare with fresh.

gegwilson (3404) - North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JAN 11, 2014
Bottle from Bruges. Pours clear amber with a big white head. Quite sweet at first with some caramel flavour. Some barnyard yeast notes in there too. The alcohol is pleasant and warming, but this is quite easy drinking and refreshing too. Good full mouthfeel from the carbonation. Very enjoyable.

aleigator (831) - GERMANY - JAN 6, 2014
Bottle from small grocery store in Bruges. Has a perfect white head, paired with a warm yellow, orange color. Yeasty, spicy aromas, floral notes, herbs, warm pleasant smell. Both color and aroma match perfectly well. Intense taste of yeast, which is big in this beer, but still goes along with a lot of spices, they add nice complexity. There is also hop, which adds a refreshing ending. Sweetness comes along with a pleasant pepperiness, while the high carbonation enhances the refreshing character. Nonetheless, the end is very smooth, with a dry mouthfeel. The bitterness in the end rounds up the very smooth overall taste of this beer, in which a spicy sweetness with a nice depth plays the mayor role. Very nice Tripel.

Sten (742) - Westerlo, BELGIUM - DEC 30, 2013
Dark golden coloured beer with a small but stable white head. Fresh fruity, yeasty and hoppy aroma. Flavour is fruity, very smooth, a bit sweet and a little bit of a bitter aftertaste. (Bottle 33cl)

Great beer! Sweet and sour aftertaste which is great! It’s quite heavy for a tripel, but I like it!
