Poured from chilled 330 ml bottle into a tulip snifter. Produced a lovely white pillowy head, with stellar lacing and film. A cloudy golden yellow hue to this beer, quite attractive.

S - quite crisp , light floral and yeasty aromas, pleasant fermentation esters, some raw sugary notes, some hay and meadow character, gradually it opens with more gentle spiciness, honey, lavender almost. Quite a delicate, creamy aroma, with growing yeast presence as well as more banana notes.

T - strong body of creamy sweet notes at the start, candi sugars, yeasty spice and florals, adding a slight hay rustic malt character. Indeed there is a nice clean malt base with some ginger/allspice notes, some citrus notes with lemoncake, and gradually complex rich fruity characters emerge as well, pears, orange and quite an earthy note in the middle as there is some growing spice and earthy character to it with some nice (subtle) hop character. Very delightful, some of the initial sugar character gets a subtle tart citrus edge along with some complex bitterness and spice that transitions to a drawn out satisfying finish.

M - Quite nice, a bit sweet at the beginning and this leaves some stickiness, but a moderate carb and a good balanced body through the process make this a quite enjoyable Tripel. A fairly big body, and some of the alcohol adds a prickle to it, but a very compete package.

A very true tripel with a really impactful and competent flavour wrapped in a very succinct and balanced profile. Very satisfying and interesting from start to finish with little surprises, it makes for quite an enjoyable sipper, and is certainly got the balance very in tune with where it is aiming. Personally, maybe it was a touch sweet with the candi sugars to begin but I enjoyed it a lot in any case. Very lovely. This brewery is on point with their beers.

It's okay. Taste like what you would expect a "normal" beer to taste like (like it is the most quintessential beer that one could expect). Aftertaste is a bit strong. Ordinary, nothing special.

Opaque golden body with white head and yeasty sediment. Belgian candy sugar, clove, honey, light malt and herbal notes. Remarkable.
