look: 4.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Appearance: Nice deep gold with a slight haze under a really powerful snow white head. Looks bottle conditioned but still, it could be a protein haze.

Aroma: Pils malt is the main aroma in the beginning, with citrus and a biscuity smell. A little weak, though, a demerit in my book.

Flavor:
Up front: Citrus tartness, a slightly biting hop bitterness, and some sweet Pils mal... with some alcohol bite, too.
Middle: Very malty, the flavor of Pils, Biscuit and maybe Honey malts. One can also taste the telltale background flavor of clear Belgian candy sugar by the sweet, deep fruity flavor, but also nutty, almost hazelnut. There's also the small bite of alcohol.

Back: Here I get flowery Noble hop bitterness and then spiciness, citrus notes and a decent amount of tartness, and then hazelnuts, biscuity malt flavors, and sweetness that borders heavily on banana and apricots. On top of that, it's quite alcoholic, almost boozy, but not too heavy, just enough to tell you it's a Tripel.

Mouthfeel: Slightly creamy but verging into a thinness from the heavy use of sugar.

Overall: Not a bad Tripel, A mix of some bitterness, hazelnut, honey notes, biscuity and sweet malt, and then fruity (banana, apricot, citrus) flavors. I like it, flavorful but the alcohol notes turned me off some, but it wasn't too much and felt like it was a normal part of the beer. A mark of 4.1.

This Belgian Tripel is an exceptional beer. It has a slightly turbid appearance and a smooth, full mouthfeel. The taste is also full with a very strong caramel aftertaste that strikes the palate and lingers on the tongue, increasing in time. This is the BEST beer I have had in a long time.

New review from a 75cl bottle

A: pale blonde colour, descent head, not a lot of carbonation.

S: orange, malts, hint of banana, apricot and hops

T: banana and peach , alcohol is there, hint of hops and malts

M: too thin, slightly undercarbonated, too alcoholic

O: pretty average tripel, the thing that bothers me most is the alcohol, not really looking forward to drinking the bottle.

Appearance; Excactly what you expect from a tripel. Maybe a bit pale. (4)

Smell: Nothing spectacular, very difficult to extract a specific smell, kind of plain. (3.5)

Taste: A disappointment. Can't really place the taste, a bit like the smell. The aftertaste flavour is something irony, metallic. As it is a new bottle, I can hardly imagine this is coming from the cap. (3)

Mouthfeel: Fo me it could use a bit more carbonation. Because of the weak taste, the alcohol is quite noticeable. (2.5)

Drinkability: Quite an easy drink. nothing complex; lacks the stronger flavours you'd expect from a tripel, because of this the alcohol comes through, and quite strongly so. (4)

If they gave me one I would drink it, but i wouldn't give money for it, as there are so many better beers in this style easily available to me.
