look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A - a white head with a nice foam structure as well. The fluid itself is pale yellow and reasonably clear.

S - A nice odor of citrus, pine and yeast.

T - A nice refreshing taste and a good full tasty body.

M - Medium to high carbonation and a medium bitter finish. There is no creamy stickiness developing in my mouth, which is a pity.

O - A good triple, nothing more.

look: 3.5 | smell: 5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

A: Nice light gold. Not too many bubbles. Not too much protein, as the head doesn't have a "cap" to it. But a white, creamy head.

S: Lovely perfume-like odor. Some coriander, yeast, grassy notes, some citrus and sweet malt notes. Very nice aroma.

T: Taste is surprisingly even front to back. Sweet, perfumy taste as well, some malty notes, alcohol is noticeable. Hops are noticeable throughout.

M: Surprisingly effervescent on the tongue. Sort of foams in the mouth.

O: Overall the smell can't overcome the shortcomings in the taste and mouthfeel. Certainly drinkable, but there are other triples I would try beforehand.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Poured out a hazy yellow/orange color. Three finger white head at first pour... settles down a bit with a great retention and lacing around the glass.

The aroma was fruity, with clean lemon zest and bread from the malt. A bit of sweetness from the alcohol, but the aroma is not overwhelming.

The taste is crisp and tart. Lemon peel, some orange, balanced out with bread note from the malt and the yeast. There is a small amount of alcohol to be noticed. But, for the ABV the brewery did a great job of hiding it.

Light crisp body that finishes tart at first then nice and clean.

This tripel... I would love to keep around... but I have not found it out side a bar yet... Loved it!

look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

A: As per the style, bright yellow color clear body with medium carbonation but a very big head is formed over the beer dissipating slowly and leaving traces on the glass, bubbles are compact forming a creamy foam.

S: It has a lot of Belgian classical smells such as dust or herbs, of course malts, interesting that almost not alcohol is sensed in the aroma.

T: It starts with some sugar and fruity tasting changing for the spiciness of the yeast and malts and alcohol combined.

M: Alcohol is not disgusting at the beginning but at some point the hops and alcohol make this one a little astringent, ending is very long.
