5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
33cl bottle. Served in a trappist glass. Can’t believe I haven’t rated this one yet - probably my 15th bottle or so. Appearance: Cloudy orange, high carbonation, huge, pillowy snow-like head. Very inviting. Aroma: This is my favourite beer to smell. It’s always slightly different. Strong notes of bubblegum, vanilla, banana, orange, cloves. Overall very sweet, fairly fruity, and someone spicy. Palate: medium-thick bodied, smooth, tiny hint of a dry finish (unlike most other tripels). Taste: Sweet, but not as sweet as the aroma suggests it should be. It’s rich, but not overwhelmingly so like a barley wine. Slight hints of dry bitterness in the finish, but it’s very subtle.
I feel there is no way they could actually improve this beer.
UPDATED: OCT 17, 2017 On bottle.
Pours hazy yellow, with nice white top.
The scent is fruity, and a little alcoholic.
The taste is really intense, it has a lot of spices, and the aftertaste is long. It's sweet, with a little bitterness, mostly from fruits (I suppose).
You can't taste the high alcoholpercentage, which is nice. tedovertu (302) - Apple Valley, Minnesota, USA - OCT 15, 2017
UPDATED: OCT 15, 2017 Pale yellow with some cloudiness. Large white head. A crisp non oily mouth feel. Much better than I expected. slire (8) - - OCT 15, 2017 does not count
UPDATED: OCT 15, 2017 after st bernardus this one has much more distinctive taste, rich and with several notes in it. not perfectly tasty for me though Blastomorpha (114) - - OCT 14, 2017
Pours pale golden-yellow with a thick and creamy white top. Looks very similar to a witbier.
Typical belgian aroma, yeasts, citrus but some banana in evidence too. Taste is straightforward sweet, not very complex.
Very high carbonation, too much almost.
Not the best tripel around but nice. OlegVY1947 (2) - - OCT 14, 2017 does not count
This is a beer with a perfect aroma and taste. Clearly it is worthwhile to taste.

Labs gaissais alus. Neatceros pec ka garsoja bet zinu ka bija labs un pirktu v?l. GhostS (488) - Chișinău, MOLDOVA - OCT 9, 2017
Aromă ușor parfumată, multe citrice (predominant mandarine), flori, malț, ceva pâine albă și drojdii (e tripel sau wit?).
Gust ușor parfurmat, cu citrice coapte și acrișoare (accentuat și de o carbogazare pronunțată), ceva dulceață de fructe galbene, malț, ceva drojdii belgiene și note de fructe fermentate, puțin piper spre final.
Bună, un tripel cu caracter de witbier, dar prea carbogazoasă și puțin cam prea ”agresivă”.
