A – Golden amber in colour and a little hazy although it has been in the cellar for 5 days now. Like the Dubbel from La Trappe this one raised a fizzy head like a cola would do and again like a cola it died instantly but this time there was a lacy cover left in the glass and as a result some very fine lacing.

S – Biscuit and bready smells dominate this one there is also typical sweet caramel tones along with some odd herby smells I cannot put my finger on.

T – Sweet malts and biscuit bready flavours dominate just like the nose. Again there is plenty of brown sugar/candy taste to this. There is a slightly bitter citrus hop edge here as well and finally the herb smell makes sense as I can now clearly taste coriander. There is also a little solvent nudge at the front end of the tongue.

MF – A lot of busy carbon and a full feeling along with a good linger.
O – This one is only so, so. It is not bad by any stretch of the imagination but it is not the best Triple coming out of the Netherlands. That said it is still a lot better than many Triples from Belgium and so it deserves more than an average score.
