App: Cloudy, pale amber with big head and lacing and strong carbonation visible

Aroma: Malty and Belgian yeast. easty with notes of banana and apple. A good typical Belgian pale or tripel smell.

Taste: Sweet malt and Belgian yeast. A sweet tasting beer with hints of toffee. There is also an interesting peppery taste here.

Mouthfeel: Medium and somewhat frothy.

Overall: A good Belgian tripel. Didn't seem to quite have the "wow" factor of a Westmalle or Karmeliet but not significantly inferior and well worth a try for fans of those beers.

90/100

0,33l bottle poured into tasting glass:
Smell of hops and herbs, light smell of malt and hay. Relatively long lasting and full white head. Slightly cloudy and light orange coloured beer. Palate: It has a full mouthtaste of first of all a moderate malt sweetness followed by a slightly sour and bitter hoppy finish with long lasting dryness.
Overall a very delicious Tripel.

Pours a hazy amber with dense creamy white head, settles slowly to a thin layer, rings of lace down the glass. Smell: lightly sugary and bready, pear, coriander and spicy hop notes. Taste: pear, cooked green apple, clove and coriander, grassy and grainy, lemon honey cough drop, pear and baking spices in the finish.
