750 ml corked and caged bottle served cold into a goblet.

Affligem trippel is a hazel, golden, yellow-orange color with thick white head. It settles quickly though and leaves no lace.

Aroma is classic Belgian trippel with lots of great yeast esters and subtle hops.

Flavor is balanced and mild but complex at the same time. Fruit, spice, pepper, and yeast all come through but none of them shout too loudly.

Mouthfeel is medium to light in body and nicely bcarbonated. Great balance of flavors and bitterness.

Overall a very good trippel and reasonably priced.

330ml bottle. Tulip glass. Intense peach as cap is removed. Bright golden color, crystal clear appearance. White froth. Aroma profile displays ripe fruit, spices, herbs, sugary alcohol, hay & ripe melon memories. Crispy, sugary & spiced upfront. Medium to full body. Moderately high carbonation. Dried palate & kind heat. Melon & ripe fruit notes are joined by low bitterness then linger into a dry sweet/bitter finish. Long fruity aftertaste.
