11.2oz of bottle-conditioned goodness served in chalice-style glass. Best before 03 2014. Wild, fruity, estery aromas. Beer is a medium orange amber with a medium thick off-white head.

Flavors are sharp, both in spiciness and as brought out by heavy carbonation. Complex flavors I can't quite describe from the yeast. There are surely adjunct sugars in there, but the beer is so dry you'd never call it sweet. I'd say this Tripel is bold but not harsh.

A very, very good Tripel.

Appearance: Very cock bottle that pops a little smoke on opening. In the glass you see the usual sunset orange colors that I have become accustom with Belgian Tripels.

Aroma: Soft nutty yeasty aroma. Dehydrated orange, pineapple and peach smell from the fruity nose.

Taste: Medium body with lively carbonation and the sheer texture that brings a flexed smoothness to the mouth.

Notes: A bold fun triple that goes down with the obscure music of John Oswald especially.

Pours a hazy orange color with a big fluffy off-white head. Great retention and lacing.
Smell is malty with notes of citrus, apple and light spice.
Taste is malt, spices, citrus, light hops, alcohol and brown sugar.
Medium-full body with a medium effervescence that's sharp on the tip of the tongue. Slight dryness at the finish. Good stuff and I want more.

330ml bottle, poured into large tulip shaped wine glass. Pale amber colour, slight haze, small one finger medium head, reasonable head retention. Had an initial fennel aroma, later on I detected some sour fruits. Tasted of sour orange and berries, pronouced hop bitterness. Booze only present at the end. Medium body medium carbonation, fairly coarse feel to it. Overall decent, but I felt it could have been more complex if not for the boozy finish.

750ml corked & caged bottle served in an oversized wineglass.

pours a ruddy, deep golden tone with just shy of two fingers' head; solid retention and pretty respectable lacing.

nose is a nice potpourri of spices, sweet malts, fruits - notably citrus with some distinct lemon zest - belgian yeast, alcohol, banana, and clove.

nose translates well to the flavor. has a candied sugar-like sweetness that threatens to push it into the realm of the too sweet, but doesn't quite. some floral notes evident, maybe a touch of pepper. also has a bit of an astringent quality to it, but otherwise is a reasonably tasty tripel.

medium plus body with average carbonation. middling drinkability: i'm thinking i will not be averse to another, but i won't be pining for one either.

The appearance of the beer is a dark, golden color. The head poured thick at first but dissipated quickly. The head leaves a consistent lacing.

The smell is dominated by the sweet malt and the heavy alcohol content, which makes the beer smell sweet and pungent at the same time.

The taste is very sweet up front then alcoholic at the end. A hint of spices is present, almost nutmeg or pumpkin, but there is no bitter flavor at all.

The mouthfeel is smooth, because of the heavy sweetness I think, with very little carbonation.

Overall the beer is tasty and strong. Not the best Belgian Triple that I have ever had but it is good. At times the brew is almost a little skunky. Worth a try!
