This is a very regular tripel. Straightforward. Because of the drinkability I won't say anything bad, but on the other side there isn't much to say in a positive way either.

L: okay; regular top; not too foamy;
S: quite yeasty, little funk;
T: nice, quite light alcohol, finish missing;
M: drinks great, but without a finish...
O: good beer.

Had this at the horrible little Galgenhuisje in Gent. Our server was relatively friendly, but the place is a tiny hovel filled with smoke. Not the most conducive to drinking beer.

Clear golden blonde colour in the glass, with a thick and frothy head of white. Decent head. Lots of streaming carbonation. It looks decent enough, without being stellar.

Round estery yeast on the nose, with big Belgian notes. Sweet, with a little spicy pepper. Mingled with this is a slight rustic note, almost like it has a bit of age on it. Not bad.

Taste is similar. Stronger, however, and sweeter, with a slight estery finish and some phenolic bite. Grain touches, which are unusual in a Belgian. Feel is light and thin. I can't say I'm a big fan.

It's soft and light, but I've had much better Belgians and much better beers stylistically.

look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Appearance - Clear blonde body with a very large head.

Smell - Sweet and citrousy. It's a lower alchohol tripel, so the smell is softer (yeastier?) than many I tried.

Taste - Starts malty but releases well with a dryer, hoppier finish.

Mouth - Medium bodied. Well carbonated. Some alcohol taste is present, though

Drinkability - Decent for a tripel, but not as smooth as other, higher alcohol tripels that can be found.

look: 5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3 | overall: 4

appearance: crystal clear. HUGE white head. Many tiny bubbles. Awesome lacing

smell: Wonderful estery aromas with candi sugar. Smells very appetizing

Taste: lemony at the front with a huge banana finish. Very nice.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied. Nothing stands out.

Drinkability: Excellent beer. I will have again if I can find it!
