4.38/5  rDev +13.5%
look: 5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Presentation: 33 cl bottle. Best before July 2007.

Appearance. Ultra thick white foamy head. Insane lacing. Yellow-gold slightly opaque liquid.

Smell: Nice and yeasty. A little malt sweetness comes through, along with a little bit of apple. Some spices in there too.

Taste: Wow. Nice and light. Good yeasty and sweet malty flavor. Bitter and dry on the finish. Apple like fruity tartness also comes in on the end, along with some hops to balance it out. My response on my first sip was "wow".

Mouthfeel: Very mellow. Very light carbonation.

Drinkability: Nice and light. Beautiful. Boy can I drink this. I want another but I only have 7 bottles left and I want to save these.

Comments: What a nice mellow triple with a really nice touch. Never heard of this before but based on previous reviews I included this in my order.. Way to go BA. Beautiful triple.

3.63/5  rDev -6%
look: 3 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

330 ml bottle into chalice, no bottle dating. Pours moderately cloudy golden amber color with a thin white head with poor retention, that reduces to a thin ring of lace. Minimal lacing on the glass, with some light streaming carbonation. Aromas of apricot, pear, apple, white grape, clove, pepper, honey, bread, herbal, and yeast earthiness. Very nice aromas with good balance and complexity of malt and fruity/spicy yeast ester notes; with good strength. Taste of pear, apple, apricot, white grape, clove, light pepper, honey, bread, herbal, and yeast earthiness. Lingering notes of pear, apple, apricot, white grape, clove, honey, bread, herbal, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Nice balance and complexity of fruity/spicy yeast and malt flavors; with a good malt/yeast balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a smooth and moderately crisp mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this was a good tripel. Good balance and complexity of fruity/spicy yeast and malt flavors; and very smooth and crisp to drink. A nicely enjoyable offering.

3.5/5  rDev -9.3%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: Rather hazy medium brown body, crowned by a modest , thin white head, which soon collapses to a dusting of foam. The lacing is thin and scattered. Little carbonation is present, and there is a moderate amount of suspended sediment.

Aroma: Robust aroma of coriander and cloves, sweet vinous alcohol, bitter apple, moderate earthy yeast, and bread-like wheat notes..

Taste: The taste begins with a moderate wave of coriander and cloves, soon followed by a moderate wave of spicy alcohol. Slight bitter apple notes are present as well. Late in the taste, there are moderate grassy hop notes, which linger on well after the end of the taste..

Mouth feel: Smooth and fairly full, pleasant..

Drinkability/notes: A pleasant, somewhat understated example of the style.

Presentation: Packaged in a standard eleven point two ounce Euro-style brown glass long-neck bottle with a pry -off crown, served in a New Belgium Brewing chalice.

2.5/5  rDev -35.2%
look: 2.5 | smell: 2.75 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2 | overall: 2.5

A: Opaque light-copper colour, medium-sized head - excessive amount of lumpy sediment - off-putting.

S: Slightly winey, sour smell.

T: Follows the smell - metallic and bready with a dominant flavour of sour grapes.

M: Clingy and unpleasantly dry.

This definitely at the bottom of my tripel-radar - a thousand leagues away from titans like the St. Bernadus tripel.

I wasn't particularly impressed by the Witkap singel, but it was definitely a more interesting experience than the tripel.

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

A: 12 oz bottle that was a bit of a foamer after popping the cap off and poured into a snifter. The beer is a hazy yellow with a huge and dense white head with decent retention that slowly fades
S: smells of fruity esters, some spicy yeast, some alcohol and a slight lemony smell
T: sharp flavors of fruitiness up front, some base malt, some lemony citrus, spice, a bit of bready malt and some alcohol. slight tartness as well. swallow is slight pale malt flavor, wisps of those fruity flavors and a tinge of alcohol.
M: ample and prickly carbonation leaves this one feeling a bit thin
O: the carbonation is a little too high and I think the aftertaste is a little lacking. it's clean though and it has good flavors. let it warm up a bit to let the flavors shine better.
