0,33 l bottle (07/01/2016) into a tulip. Clear pale golden body, three finger white head, dissipates fairly quickly, little lacing, leaves a thin veil. Fruity, yeasty, malty smell with a bit of alcohol. The taste begins with spice, followed by bisquity malts and fruitiness with pineapple and citrus, ending with peppery yeast and a hint of anise. Medium-full body, high stingy carbonation, creamy mouthfeel. A good tripel with a lot of flavor. Drinkable despite it's strength.

Gold in color with a large white head that is not quite as creamy looking as other Belgians I have tried. Seems to be a decent amount of carbonation due to the amount of bubbles I see.

Very fruity smell up front. Mainly citrus like orange and lemon, maybe a hint of pineapple. There is also a bit of spice, mainly pepper and coriander.

Fairly fruity up front, tastes more like a blend of fruit rather than any specific flavor, but I am guessing orange, apple, and pineapple are in there. There's a decent amount of spice, mainly pepper with a hint of coriander. Finishes with just a bit of lingering hop bitterness.

Nice smooth feel to this, and a lot of tingling from high carbonation.

I really liked this one. Has a lot of flavor and complexity. The sweetness is not overdone, and balanced nicely by the spice. This is easily the best triple I have tried in some time. This is the first beer from this brewery I have tried, I am anxious to try more, and at $8 for a 750ml, a really great bargain. I will be drinking more of this.

Pour is lightly hazed golden yellow with a thick white head. Nose is similar to the blonde, has the some dusty malt, spice isn't as assertive nor is the perfume (in a good way). Taste is sweeter than the nose, faint dusty malt with lemon and a bit of candied sugar. Light citrus in the back. Soft body, moderate carbonation and a smooth feel.

330 ml bottle with a bottled on date almost exactly 2 years past.

A: Pours cloudy, pale amber with a good, semi-durable head. Some sediment added in the pour but more left in the bottle.

Smells like a refined but yeasty/bready Belgian tripel. Mildly spicy.

Flavor: complex, with fruity, spicy and bready elements interweaving with very good balance.

Feel: lively carbonation in a crisp, near-medium body.

O: excellent tripel emphasizing fruity and peppery flavors.

Served on tap in a chalice glass

Appearance – The beer is served a amber color with a one finger head of pure white foam. The head fades rather fast, leaving a lighter level of lace on the sides of the glass.

Smell – The aroma of the beer is light overall with the heaviest of the smells being that of a yeasty and biscuit like aroma. Along with these aromas are some smells of a more floral and spicy nature with the spice being mainly of a clove and coriander.

Taste – The taste begins with a biscuit malt flavor mixed with a light level of yeastiness and spice. The spice is mainly of a coriander and clove nature with these flavors later being accentuated by some other spice flavors of a pepper and floral spice nature. Flavors of a more citrus nature come to the tongue as the taste advances with orange and tangerine coming to the tongue. Some floral and grassy hops come to the tongue more toward the end of the taste along with some flavors of banana and bubblegum, with the mix of flavors in the end, creating a moderately sweet, but very easy going smooth Belgian flavor to linger on the tongue.

Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is on the medium side for a triple with a carbonation level that is on the slightly lower side. A slightly higher carbonation level may have been slightly better for the fruit flavors of the brew, but overall the feel was rather decent for the style.

Overall – A very easy drinking triple that hides the alcohol very well. Very inoffensive and rather refreshing and quite drinkable in light of its 8.5% abv. Nothing overly exceptional, but still rather enjoyable. A very neutral Belgian triple.
