look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 1 | feel: 3 | overall: 1.5

The beer pours a nice gold with a foamy white head that stays for a long time.

The smell is bready with some caramel, yeast and alcohol.

The taste is similar to the nose with bread, yeast, caramel and alcohol but it has a sugary/syrupy sweetness that I strongly dislike and there's a dry and nasty aftertaste that sticks to the tongue and reminds me of rotting fruit, sour dough and stingy alcohol.

Mouthfeel has a bit too much carbonation but honestly I hardly paid attention anymore with the just plain awful taste.

Overall: My first drain pour, it's drinkable up until the aftertaste which sucks out all possible enjoyment from the beer.

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.

Glass still outstanding. The nose is less fresh than her sister but it offers more fruit. And they are quite smelly in a pure style of maceration. The power of beer is also much more feel than its sister fair and there is a high alcoholic strength as it played more on lightness. A good beer in the style tripel but far from exceptional.

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.

Bottle served in a glass horn which was really neat, at Antwerpen Bierhueske.

Pours a huge frothy head in the horn, 4+ fingers pillow head that keeps rising due to the bubbles forming at the base and rising up, the unique shape causes a ridiculous never ending head, hazy orange color.

Nose has a little yeasty aroma, mild spices, faint golden malts, grainy, bit of booze and esters, sweet golden malt character, light fruity orange rind, spices like coriander and orange peel.

Taste starts with malts, sweet candy flavors, blond malt candy, light orange peel, faint spices like coriander, booze kicks in with warmth and tingle as well as light esters and faint phenols. Finish is semi sweet but drier, some booze warmth and tingle lingers, faint orange peel, spices and phenolic lingers.

Mouth is med bod, nice fluffy carb, warming tingly booze.

Overall pretty good, nothing super special but fairly well done beer. Nice malts, booze is there and adds nice characters, light spices, tasty, but the fact that it's served in the big glass horn encased in wood makes the experience.

Highly floral and richly of honey, the beer may be more famed for its stemware than for it's taste.

Fitting the "tripel" prototype, the beer pours with a medium straw, light gold color that glows through a yeasty, milky haze. It's a very heady beer that billows to the rim of the glass with ease. Creamy, airy, and frothy, the foam shows tremendous staying power and laces decoratively against the glass.

The beer's bouquet is as aromatic as any I've known- notions of honeysuckle, botannicals, and rose pedals keep the beer lively and highly aromatic. Underneath the obvious floral tones are softer wheat, bread, and yeast scents that ground the beer. Spicy with white pepper, ground cumin, and dried orange, the phenolic aromas bring balance to the fruit and blooms.

And in taste, the malty sweetness and floral taste translates to honey as well. Smooth, rich, and with a hearty grain sweetness that over takes the palate like powdered sugar and hay, the pilsner flavor and floral hops are alive and well. Balanced with a light earthy bitterness, light grass, and herbal taste; the beer also shows complements of sulfur, acidity, and citric character of apples, pears, and oranges.

Medium bodied, the early carbonation keeps things arid and dry. But as the carbonation fades, the lingering malts lay softly on the mouth and buffer against the spices and warm alcohols.

The beer is very rewarding as it satisfies the taste buds, stomach, and head. But with its restrained hop bitterness and elevated sweetness, it compares more favorably to strong pale ales better than tripel ales.

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.

Very hazy yello colour, big white head. Served in a chalice glass, while I try to get a corn one. Smell is sweet, spicy, vanilla, pears, apple. Alcohol comes in the end. Palate is creamy, like silk, bready. Taste of spices, fruits, oranges, apple, pie, marzipan. Really good.
