From a 750 ml corked bottle, I pour this into a Chimay chalice. This beer pours a golden orange with a good bit of haze, yet relatively clear for the style. A rocky one inch head settles down within a few minutes yet continues to offer light soapy lacing.

Offers an interesting nose of apples AND oranges, yeast and malt. Quite enticing and complex, yet without any sour notes.

Taste is a bit of a letdown from the nose, but that was expected. Yet it wasn't much of a letdown by any means and improves with a little warming. More yeast and citrus, clove and cinnamon. A decent dose of malts but not overdone by any means. Feel and finish segue seamlessly, nicely done. Good drinkability within the style. Not overly malty, yet sufficient to keep the alcohol off the tongue. A bit present on the nose perhaps, but it ends there.

4.38/5  rDev +10.3%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

The appearance is light golden amber with loads of carbonation and a dig head that dissipates Cloudy.

The smell is of white bread, banana and yeast. A very classic Belgian Triple aroma.

The taste is quite boozy. I detect hints of honey and there is a dry spicy finish. It is a fairly mild but well refined flavour.

The mouthfeel is very creamy and also well carbonated.

Overall, this a very good Triple.

My mark out of one hundred is 90.
