Golden with a copper tinge, and tons of yeast particles floating within like a 60’s lava lamp. Topped with 2 fingers of white head.

Smells of Belgian phenols, bananas and cloves, and cedar wood notes.

Tastes strongly of bitterness and sweetness, with a hint of acrid, along with Belgian phenols, hints like barrel aging (although there’s no evidence it has been barrel aged) and finishes with a bitter crunch. The flavours meld together, and it feels like a bunch of out of place, overdone tastes that are all so equal in their presence that it folds together and works to make it a complete and mellowed composition. Its like a tapestry. I get hints of corn on the end.


Medium but strong body, it hits the tongue like a laser beam that mellows and doesn’t do damage but only serves to awaken the taste buds. Moderate carbonation, also spice like.

Got this in Gatineau a couple days ago, I’m drinking it in St Jean Port Joli Dec 23rd, 2017. I love the bottle, as it takes me back history, and the beard which is pretty cool. The overall composition is well done.

A: Poured into a snifter to a pale and hazed golden yellow topped by a dense three finger white head that retains well and leaves some lacing
S: Smells of spice and malts with some honey. There are also some hints of citrus and fruits
T: Taste is spicy up front with some orchard fruits, slight alcohol but some honey like sweetness and pear flavors which combine and complement each other well. The swallow on this beer is more orchard fruits and spice with some lingering honey like sweetness.
M: This beer is on the lighter side of medium in body with soft but adequate carbonation and a semi-dry finish.
O: Overall this beer is pretty good. It has nice flavors and complexity while hitting a lot of the notes that I expect from a quality Trupel. Definitely one to try if this style is your thing.

600 mL bottle. Clear orange from the top of the bottle. Hazy in the middle. Smells of citrus, Belgian yeast, and a strong malt presence. Taste has a ton of malt as well. Almost no citrus here. Yeast lends banana and some spice. Heavy caramel. Dries out quickly. Medium heavy. Medium carbonation. Malty version of a tripel, which might be a generous descriptor.

From the 650 ml. bottle with a bottling date of 10-12-14. Sampled on April 18, 2016.

The pour is mainly orange-amber under a modest, short lasting off-white head.. Great clarity.

The aroma brings out the typical spicy Belgian toasted notes as well as an obvious fruity character. That tends to be the main thing.

Medium body.

The taste has some bite to it. Fruity characters, pepper, and Belgian spiciness. The finish is slightly bitter. There is an alcohol burn that coats (and stimulates my senses).
