Had this one on tap with dinner. Pours hazy deep golden with a frothy white head. Aroma of sweet fruits like pears, some honey, hints of spice. Flavor follows the smell closely with light sweetness and yeast funk. Easy drinking, medium bodied, with medium carbonation. Is have this again, though there are better options when in Belgium.

I had already had one Tripel while at Cafe 't Pothuiske (on 04Oct12), so I opted to try one more. This one fit the bill, a 0.33l bottle for €3.90.

I filled the tulip with a medium golden brew. It was mostly clear and had a frothy, slightly off-white head. The topping lasted nicely and produced goid lacework. Nose was fruity, a touch tropical, and had hints of spiciness. Body was medium, but it had a tad more prickly roughness than I like.

Flavor was also fruity, with mild tropical action (some mango and pear) hitting the palate. Was slightly dry at the finish, with a bit of yeasty spice present. Overall rather simplistic, yet still tasty, imo. Prosit!

A - Amber colored with an enormous white head.

S - Fresh and fruity with malts - very inviting.

T - Fresh and full of taste, in the middle pallet there is a metal like taste observable.

M - Light bitter finish and light sticky in your mouth mixed with a medium carbonation.

O - A good triple but not something special. De almost metal like taste in the middle is a killer for this beer.

'Mother Superior'. Tripel, 33 cl. bottle, bb june 2010.
Recommended by the guy at a local liquor store.

Colour orange-brown, with cream coloured head, that hold up decently. Ok carbonation.

Smell is malty, floral and citric hops, belgian yeast.
Taste is pretty spicy indeed. Pepper and clove and coriander. Malts and citrus in the background.
Not sweet, but reasonably dry in the mouthfeel. The alcohol is well masked, and the brew is still ok refreshing overall.
A tripel in the Belgian tradition, but on the agressive side of the spectrum. It's still well balanced and overall a good drink in a bar.
