Poured from a brown 330 ml bottle that came along with an Affligem goblet gift pack, best before date on side of label: 21 09 06. A hazy apricot appearance to the body, big foamy white head with pockets of cinnamon here and there. Nice head retention. Peppery spice and candy sugar sweetness on the nose, with some pear and apple to hold it up. The flavour is subdued at first, mild, light spices in the beginning, pepper and clove, while a pear-like sweetness starts to build towards the finish. Tart esters on the finish, with a spicy black pepper aftertaste. Satin mouthfeel, rolls over the palate smoothly with some body to hold it up. Not watery like the dubbel. Not a tripel that I am itching to have again any time soon, from what I've sampled so far Affligem has gotten it right with their blonde, while everything else seems sub-par in comparison. Hopefully this tripel is better in their caged and corked version, I look forward to the opportunity to sample that as well.

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.
