3.68/5  rDev -6.6%
look: 4.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

This is a decent tripel. Not one of the best I've had, but at least top 20. Probably my least favorite of the Koningshoeven line so far.

The beer looks awesome in the glass. Perhaps a little bit dark for a tripel, but it looks great. The beer is a golden amber color with a VERY active carbonation that makes the beer shimmer like a ruby. Fairly thick white head with good retention and lacing.

The smell is the weakest link. Has a bit of a moldy hay malt profile with a touch of candi sugar and bubblegum esters. A bit of a pepper and clove phenol.

The taste is better than the aroma. The moldy hay flavor doesn't carry over from the nose, thankfully. Still plenty of bubblegum esters and candi sugar. Still some pepper and clove. A tad bit hoppy, but I would like a bit more in this tripel.

The body is medium. Fairly crisp from the carbonation. A bit of an alcohol burn with a light bitterness in the finish. Could stand to be a little bit drier with less candi sugar. Not bad, but could be a little bit more drinkable.

3.74/5  rDev -5.1%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Appearance- Pours dark orange with one finger white head which stays on top all the way down , well carbonated and leaves lacing all the way down the glass.

Smell- I get grain, rum/sherry Xmas pudding on the nose. Pleasant.

Taste- Alcohol at first then dark fruit, sweetness and finally the hops at the end. A big heavy beer with lots of flavour.

Mouthfeel- Full mouthfeel but not creamy or fizzy.

Overall- A big potent filling brew with lots of flavour would recommend to any beer lover who hasn't tried before.
