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 doesnt 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.

Pours hazy gold with lively carbonation and a white head. Banana, fruit, and yeast aroma. Carmel malt and citrus flavours with a bitter finish. Good, not great.

Intressante triple que cette Watou de la brasserie Saint Bernardus et que la bonne connaissance du style demande avoir dgust. Sa particularit est double : dune part une complexit de lattaque rare pour le genre et de lautre, lalliance, sur un bel quilibre, dune bouche ronde et pleine la force de lunion amertume/alcool. Sa robe est dore (EBC de 30 environ), pare dun voile soyeux et surmonte dune mousse blanche ar se stabilisant 1 centimtre dpaisseur. Le nez ne fait pas mentir son genre : crales, coriandre et pointe citronne au rendez vous. A la fois doux et quilibr. A la dgustation, lattaque est remarquable de complexit. En complment de lamertume dj prsente se font remarquer les armes de crales de fruits jaunes sur des notes pices trs agrables et prsentant de multiples variations. La deuxime bouche est toute en rondeur, sur le malt et le miel. Et cest alors lamertume, prcdant de trs peu lalcool qui permettent de donner de llan la bire, de lui confrer de la puissance et de la fracheur pour ainsi trancher par rapport la rondeur et la douceur prsente depuis la deuxime bouche. Larrire bouche reste dailleurs sur le malt, le miel et les fruits jaunes. Lamertume et lalcool ne sont dailleurs pas dune grande intensit pour autant. Mais le contraste avec la base malte est telle que ce final nen est que plus brillant. Celui-ci dune longueur acceptable, laissera toute sa place la chaleur de lalcool qui pourtant est modr avec 7,5 % Abv, et de petite notes poivres. Cette triple jouant sur les contrastes, nen oublie pas pour autant lquilibre sur un ensemble harmonieux voire voluptueux. Il faut cependant pour tre exhaustif noter une complexit aromatique moindre aprs lattaque et une longueur quon aurait souhait un peu plus longue. Cette Watou est cependant sans conteste une belle triple.

Bottle, Ann Arbor, MI via Lcbo. Hazy medium gold. Banana yeast aroma. Some funky basement must. Smooth. More yeasty bubblegum. Mellow slightly citrus finish.

While I found this to be highly enjoyable, I feel like it stopped short before its full flavour impressed. It led me to the water but didnt make me drink. Very solid.

minutemat (5258) - Shrewsbury, Shropshire, ENGLAND - NOV 30, 2016
330m bottle from Auchan. Pours a misty gold, good white head. Lightly sweet tripel yeast aroma. Taste is like a weak half-strength abbey tripel, all the usual characteristics are present but in a sessionable dose. Light citrus and floral hints, but it leaves you yearning for St Bernardus standard tripel.

Aromat typowej nudnej belgi. Przyprawy wymieszane z owocami. Na pewno dobre piwo, żeby zapoznać się z stylem
