Pale and golden with a lively white head. Hints of light fruits, some pears, white grapes, orange peels, and a touch of yeasty bread. A bit of clove as well. Very classic Belgian pale ale and tripel flavor. Goes well with a flaky white fleshed fish with butter and rosemary. Effervescent and light, this beer makes for a nice compliment with dinner.

big yeast funk, spice, orange slice, everything nice. solid tripel, loads of carbonation making for fun excess swirling, cool bottle, at first it seems less tinted but its just lack of a paper label, lets some more light in but at least it isn't a green bottle. look forward to more from this brouwerij. this is close to westmalle but it doesn't pack the same punch

11.2oz bottle (stamp on label = 14/02/15 H 12:29) poured into a Tulip glass. Slow pour to leave the yeast sediment behind. Was mostly successful on the pour - only a tiny bit came along.

Appearance: Hazy golden yellow with a hint of brown/grey tint to it. Beer glows a bit the way it defracts the light. Thin off-white rocky head that died back to a ring at the edge of the glass. Some islands and strands of lacing noted.

Smell: Fruit/berries, sweet, and a hint of banana. Just a hint of citrus too as the beer warms up.

Taste: Crisp, sweet, hint of honey and apple, with a strong herbal / spicy finish of German style noble hops.

Mouthfeel: Robust, but not fizzy, carbonation that scrubs the palate. Tiny bit sticking to the teeth. Nice thickness under it all.

Overall / Drinkability: A definite sipping beer, but I wish I had a larger bottle, so good marks for drinkability. Good with a meal (fish and green beans) but I think it would hold up all on its own....although I think it would always be better with some food. I can't quite put my finger on it, but a beer like this seems best with food. By itself it does quite well, but I think more of the flavors are notable with food to contrast against. A solidly outstanding beer.

Poured a light lemon-yellow color with a 1/2 finger head in a Trappist glass.

Immediate stone fruit aroma- peaches and more. As the beer warmed up, more spice,and more prominent in the balance of aromatics. Stone fruit aroma and taste are less common in a tripel.

The mouth feel was not too carbonated. This transitioned well into the taste which continued with
stone fruits: peaches and apricots.

The finish rounds off the beer: dry and perfect accompaniment to the fruit-spice character of the aroma/taste.

Overall: I really enjoyed this Belgian Tripel. Different than others in the style.
