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

A: pretty big, creamy rather firm head on this one that collapses more than it disappears, lovely sight really nice hazy yellow colour
The instructions on the bottle seem kind of retarded, it says in Dutch & French but not in English "Tip: either pour the yeast into the glass or drink it separately." Is there a third way to do it or?
S: primarily Saez hops, some yeast, bready, floral element, smell is not that strong
T: floral, bitter hops, not too overt but definitely present, bready yeast, some banana/fruit & spice
M: slick, medium bodied, decent (somewhat above average, towards high) carbonation, I am thinking more of a good Belgian Strong Pale Ale rather than a tripel
D: pretty high, seems sesionable whilst it probably shouldn't be, definetly a nice beer, enjoyed it

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

The initial pour is clear and straw yellow with a foamy white head and froth. Aroma of phenolic yeast, bread, honey and herbal hops. In the taste, more of the same, sweet malt, dusty, phenolic Belgian yeast, table sugar, and herbal malts. Very clean and easy drinking. Keeps bringing back a tempered sweetness and dry, woody hops. Medium bodied and well carbonated, dry, almost tannic finish. Overall, a good triple but just above average.

3.96/5  rDev +8.8%
look: 4.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

Rather translucent light blonde-colored ale with a massive three and a half finger head. Serious lace and rocky-top foam retention.

Big Belgian nose of spicy banana and malty white bread. Phenol clove and pear and chewy malts. Semi-musty and bruised fruitiness, thank you yeast. Forefront malty punch with layers of breadth. Reduced are the notes of alcohol and a spry citrusy hop.

Malts have the same character, but diminished, with added pilsner-y tones. Same clove, lesser yellow banana, spiciness, white bread, faint treacle with contributing sweetness, and finishing alcohol warmth. Sting of the booze, coupled with a lagery bitternesd, makes for a long aftertaste. Some semblance of citrusy hops are in play, but in small roles.

Chewy, chunky dried head and mushy wet body. It has a backbone, with that 9%. Not afraid to be a big boy. Good stuff.

Good. I'd love to try more from this brewery.

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

Coming in a 330ml slim brown bottle, BB 28/08/14, served chilled in a long-stemmed wine goblet.

Appearance: pours a lightly translucent, bright golden colour with lively and fine carbonation in action, topped with a thin off-white creamy head to last.
Smell: the lively Saaz’ hop aroma comes in perfect harmony with the dense and perfumy fruit esters, featuring ripe bananas, pears, sweetened lemons, underlined by sweet vanilla, melted rock sugar and exotic mung bean paste. Fulsome and richly estery all in all.
Taste: light-bodied and mildly fizzy on the entry, the flavour is light-bodied sweet malty and overripe-fruit estery at the same time, edged by rather fine spicy elements and leaving a long and deepening flow of tangy, spicy and Saaz’ aromatic bitterness going down the rear of the palate, rendering a lightly chewy and yet dry-ish mouthfeel alongside the belated entry of alc. warmth.
Mouthfeel & Overall: refreshingly carbonated, moderate on the palate without going sugary/slick, while the alc. content hides very well in general, showing just a tinge of warmth in the very end of each patient sip. All in all, I find this Tripel a well-crafted one showcasing a charming estery theme on the aroma and a rather bitter and nicely spicy palate on top of a generally straight-forward but decent flavour profile.

3.83/5  rDev +5.2%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Tall frothy head lays atop fluid sparkling with carbonation, reminiscent of an orange sunset...
Aromas of wheat, belgo yeast, and citrus come off the top. Sweetness hits the palate, followed abrubtly by bitter hops and the spice of booze, citrus fruits dominate. Body is medium built and contrasted with furious champagne like bubbles.

Overall this beer gives me a relief from the local Okinawan fare, Orion, Kirin< etc... I appreciate the bitter with the sweet. Nice, tripel I recommend it.
