A - Dull cloudy orange under a finger of bubbly head.

S - Quite mild estery tripel aroma, yeast, apple and grape.

T - Yeast, brett, champagne, orange, apple, pear and the slightest hint of smoke.

M - Spicy mouthful, highly carbonated, medium body.

O - Enjoyable for a tripel fan like myself but when Tripel Karmeliet is so widely available and tremendous you are better off with one of those.

Poured chilled in ale glass on Superbowl Sunday

A: good head, carb; medium yellow color; nice lacing
S: apple, pear, yeast, belgian aroma
T: classic Belgian tripel; tastes boozy, but isn't terribly; cider, pear, sweet, not hoppy

overall, a really nice beer

Golden yellow beer, quite dark almost amber. Veiled. Nice looking head on top of it, however it disappear quite too fast to my liking :). Nice aroma... fruity with some belgian yeast. Nice, and very inviting! Well balanced in the nose. On the taste, it is quite sugary with some fruity notes. Maybe too sugary for my liking. Very dry finish. Medium body. Carbonation is quite good and very well balanced.

A nice tripel that I would like to get my hands on it in Quebec. Drank this one during supper at Hotel New York in Rotterdam!

A - A white head, decent looking and then turns to fluffy quite quick. The fluid is clear and gold colored. No visible carbonatie.

S - A strong smell of pine and citrus.

T - A rather dry and solid taste of pine and citrus. This beer is more inbetween a triple and a DIPA. The grain tones make it just more a triple though.

M - A creamy sticky feeling comes direct after the medium carboantion has settled down. After swallowing the medium bitterness sets in.

O - A reasonable triple, not extraordinary though.
