I recently had the Affligem Triple in Paris, France. Overall I thought it was good.

Look: clear golden with a large bubbly white head

Aroma: honey, yeast, apples

Taste: The flavor is sweet and fruity, honey, yeast, apples, banana, apricot, some apple peel like bitterness. I think it is very good.

Feel: light to medium body

Pours a deep golden color with a medium top of white creamy head, with some nice sticky lacings on the glass.Aroma is of apricot,pears,banana,honey,yeast and light malts. The flavour is quite strong,it is sweet and fruity with spicy yeast and malts in the back. The finish is dry, and the aftertaste bittersweet with a ok lenght. I do think that the sweetness is a little to much compared to the other flavours. Medium carbonated with a medium body, alcohol content is masked quite good for the strenght. All in all is a good triple, and it has all the characteristics for a triple. Compare it to other belgian triples, this one gets a little to weak and unbalanced to be among the toprated ones.

The beer poured an apple juice gold into the chalice with a thin white head. The aroma was fruity and spicy with a hint of yeast. Apples and citrus were the predominant fruit notes. Mouthfeel was medium bodied and well carbonated. The first flavour note is yeast, followed by some light apple and citrus, and unfortunately, the alcohol is very noticeable.

12 oz bottle into a Teku

Big billowing off white head leaving some nice lacing. Straw color. Fruity esters on the nose, bubble gum. Taste follows the nose - nice bitterness, more fruit, very dry, full bodied. A gem
