330ml bottle into a goblet.
Pours a slightly hazy medium orange with a half finger fluffy white head. Excellent head retention with just a little bit of lacing on the sides of the glass.
There is really a whole lot going on in the aroma. Lots of Belgian spicyness along with some peach and orange. marmalade. Strong notes of caramel candy and lightly toasted bread. More earthy than I was expecting.
The flavor doesn’t seem quite as complex as the aroma but it is still quite enjoyable. Bread mixed with peaches and orange throughout with a lot of banana and clove up front. Hops are nearly non-existent which is appropriate. Some caramel sweetness but it is restrained with a somewhat drying finish bringing up the end. No hint of alcohol whatsoever.
Overall, a really good tripel with quite a bit going on. I really love the number of nuances in the aroma and flavor. This is a really interesting as well as refreshing beer to drink.

330mL bottle from International Beer Collector. BB 02/11/18
Pours a hazy pale gold body, big creamy white head hangs around.
Aroma grain upfront - hay, cereals, touch of DMS maybe - get some stonefruit esters filtering through - apricot, yellow peach, slight herbal/dried spice note, kind of minerally.
Sort of lean for its strength - slight creaminess to the palate, carbonation quite high, finishes dry with carbonation accentuating the booze.
Pale fruits dominate palate - pear, apricot, peach, with peppery spice, cereals, drying finish. moderate bitterness.
A reasonable Tripel. simontomlinson (564) - Blackburn, Lancashire, ENGLAND - SEP 16, 2017
FRothy white head soon left a cover on a still orange body with lots of particles.
Orange, zest, & Belgian yeast aroma.
Medium bodied, smooth with a slight tingle on the back. Cloying on the aft.
A bg hit of orange, Belgian yeast, spices, cloves & peppery finish.

Bottle - 330ml. Hazy golden body with yeasty chunks and a thin, white foamy/creamy head. Fantastic, complex malty/hoppy aroma with fruity, honeyish, and candy hints. Its well balanced malty/hoppy taste carries honeyish, herbal, and fruity notes. Ends with a moderately warming bittersweet finish. Very enjoyable. NiklasT (81) - SWEDEN - AUG 9, 2017
Golden, slightly amber. Fruity, yeasty aroma. Taste nicely balanced, less sweet than some tripels. Ends with clear but not dominant bitterness. Very nice tripel, just below the very best. loscovar (659) - Trieste, ITALY, Villeneuvette, FRANCE - JUL 24, 2017
