look: 4.5 | smell: 5 | taste: 5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4.5

Poured into a Chimay chalice, rich yellow-red color. Enticing aroma, a blend of citrus and damp earth, almost grassy.

Tastes of straw and wheat. Quick tease of grass on the tip of the straw which turns to a blanket of flavor as it finishes thru the rest of the tongue. Slight bitterness after the swallow

Just what I was expecting from this style.

I settled into a bar seat at Café De Knijnspiep after some shopping for some serious drinking. Started with three bottles of this nice Tripel, 0.33l at €3.75 per...

My small chalice was filled with a medium golden, slightly flat bier. It was still a vibrant hue, with a creamy white head. Topping was fluffy and lasted well, with decent lacing. Nose is nice and fruity, with super tropical fruit present. Body was medium, and the feel was light and airy on the tongue.

Had a nice crackery, doughy sweetness, and was dry and crisp through and through. Had lots of tropical fruit, with white grape skin, apple, pear and some peppery spice. At the finish there was a healthy amount of spicy, yeasty notes. Really nice, yes indeed! Zum Wohl!!
