33cl bottle (03 2016) into a tulip. Clear golden color, a big foamy head with good retention and huge lacings, settled down to a thin foam. Smell has sweet malts, yeast, peach, lemon with a hint of alcohol. Tastes the same as the smell, fruity and bready. Medium body and carbonation, creamy mouthfeel. The alcohol is well hidden, no apparent alcoholic taste but warms the mouth. A good sipping tripel. Didn't expect much from it but got a pleasant surprise. Would have again.

Don't have the official horn shaped glass, but the Chimay one will do just fine.
There seems to be a lot of sediment in the bottle. Pours hazy golden, massive more than 3 finger high fluffy foam with big retention, that leaves lots of traces on the glass. A few floaters, personally i poured them all in.
Smell of floral and spicy hops, acidic fruit, citrus peel, faint caramel and busy yeasts.
Taste is fruity at first, with green apple, pear, oranges and grapefruit, really acidic (bit of sourness too), backed by mildly sweet malts (grains, hint of honey too). A nice concoction of spices and herbs follows, pretty complex: nice clear coriander, aniseseed, tiny hint of mint, dry orange peel, roses. Funky green notes (green grass and hay) in the nice hoppy finish, with a nice mineral spicy bitterness that wraps it all up.
Medium carbonation after the first fizzy sips, which works ok with the creamy full body of this beer, really unexpectedly chewy. Alcohol is perfectly hidden.
I admit i expected this to be a mediocre Belgian beer with a "fancy" glass and smart marketing, but it was actually a really good tripel, so screw the "corne". Nice surprise. Also, no added sugars, nice.

33cl Bottle: obtained from De Bierboom some time ago. Poured into Duvel glass (sadly I don't have the horn it should be drank out of) on 5th Dec 13 during a Belgian beer tasting evening I had a home with myself.

Amber with a mini haze because some of the sediment got out the bottle: on top an off-white crown.

Subtle notes of yeast, sweet malts and citrus hints vied for attention in the nose. These features carried on into the taste with a more floral and fruity (none-citrus) feel overall. Add a sprinkling of pepper and some caramel into the brew kettle and you've got the flavours I did.

The beer had a strong alcohol kick from the start with the flavours just about coping.

330ml bottle. Tulip glass. Enjoyed on jun´13. (Javi´s –from La Tienda de la Cerveza, Madrid- suggestion). Bright amber color, veiled appearance. White, medium bubbled, froth creates a wide crown showing fairly good retention. Belgian yeast, hints of bread, brown sugar, slight ripe citric & crystal malts, as well as herbal notes to the nose. Fizzy upfront, sugary & mild toasted malt flavors. Medium to full body. Moderate to high carbonation. Oily texture. Subtle ripe citric, low bitterness & warming alcohol. Orange zest astringency provides a dry sensation & lingers into a long finish. Orange & spices on the aftertaste. Neither acidic nor harsh ABV. Pleasant drinkability. Pretty correct Tripel.

Coming in a 330ml slim brown bottle, BB 08/2015, served lightly-chilled in a long-stemmed wine glass.

A: pours a dark golden to light amber hue, slightly murky, coming with a 1cm-thick layer of off-white froth and lively carbonation.
S: a decent pale malt backbone carries the yeasty-fruity elements as in sweetened lime juice, citric aroma of Goldings and Saaz, savoury-sweet white prunes, overripe pineapples (only just), wheat-ish malts, etc. Given a very good swirl, the typical perfumy flowery esters (a bit like elderflower cordial) and Chinese mung bean paste emerge on top of the rest of the flavours, as well as a solid but not over-the-top acidity to help reach a balance. Nice.
T: well-effervescent and smooth at the same time, the foretaste is initially exotic-fruity and malty without incurring any heavy or cloying feel, then the citric bitterness, peppery spiciness, mung-bean-paste like esters and a chewy hop mouthfeel chime in, before a restrained alcoholic warmth and a dry-ish palate rounds it off.
M&O: the mouthfeel is generally refreshing and light, showing nothing reminiscent of the strength of a 10%abv. strong ale; this full-bodied Triple is very very likeable, not that colourfully flavoursome but just what I’d expect from a beer made from nothing but water, yeast, malted barley and hops; no candy sugar added, according to the back label. The end result is a well-crafted and nicely-structured pale ale that is sufficiently attenuated but at the same time keeps subtle flavours in their succinct and orderly entirety. I truly like it.
