Coming in a 330ml slim brown bottle, BB 08/2015, served lightly-chilled in a long-stemmed wine glass.

A: pours a dark golden to light amber hue, slightly murky, coming with a 1cm-thick layer of off-white froth and lively carbonation.
S: a decent pale malt backbone carries the yeasty-fruity elements as in sweetened lime juice, citric aroma of Goldings and Saaz, savoury-sweet white prunes, overripe pineapples (only just), wheat-ish malts, etc. Given a very good swirl, the typical perfumy flowery esters (a bit like elderflower cordial) and Chinese mung bean paste emerge on top of the rest of the flavours, as well as a solid but not over-the-top acidity to help reach a balance. Nice.
T: well-effervescent and smooth at the same time, the foretaste is initially exotic-fruity and malty without incurring any heavy or cloying feel, then the citric bitterness, peppery spiciness, mung-bean-paste like esters and a chewy hop mouthfeel chime in, before a restrained alcoholic warmth and a dry-ish palate rounds it off.
M&O: the mouthfeel is generally refreshing and light, showing nothing reminiscent of the strength of a 10%abv. strong ale; this full-bodied Triple is very very likeable, not that colourfully flavoursome but just what I’d expect from a beer made from nothing but water, yeast, malted barley and hops; no candy sugar added, according to the back label. The end result is a well-crafted and nicely-structured pale ale that is sufficiently attenuated but at the same time keeps subtle flavours in their succinct and orderly entirety. I truly like it.

33cl bottle (03 2016) into a tulip. Clear golden color, a big foamy head with good retention and huge lacings, settled down to a thin foam. Smell has sweet malts, yeast, peach, lemon with a hint of alcohol. Tastes the same as the smell, fruity and bready. Medium body and carbonation, creamy mouthfeel. The alcohol is well hidden, no apparent alcoholic taste but warms the mouth. A good sipping tripel. Didn't expect much from it but got a pleasant surprise. Would have again.

Don't have the official horn shaped glass, but the Chimay one will do just fine.
There seems to be a lot of sediment in the bottle. Pours hazy golden, massive more than 3 finger high fluffy foam with big retention, that leaves lots of traces on the glass. A few floaters, personally i poured them all in.
Smell of floral and spicy hops, acidic fruit, citrus peel, faint caramel and busy yeasts.
Taste is fruity at first, with green apple, pear, oranges and grapefruit, really acidic (bit of sourness too), backed by mildly sweet malts (grains, hint of honey too). A nice concoction of spices and herbs follows, pretty complex: nice clear coriander, aniseseed, tiny hint of mint, dry orange peel, roses. Funky green notes (green grass and hay) in the nice hoppy finish, with a nice mineral spicy bitterness that wraps it all up.
Medium carbonation after the first fizzy sips, which works ok with the creamy full body of this beer, really unexpectedly chewy. Alcohol is perfectly hidden.
I admit i expected this to be a mediocre Belgian beer with a "fancy" glass and smart marketing, but it was actually a really good tripel, so screw the "corne". Nice surprise. Also, no added sugars, nice.

Highly floral and richly of honey, the beer may be more famed for its stemware than for it's taste.

Fitting the "tripel" prototype, the beer pours with a medium straw, light gold color that glows through a yeasty, milky haze. It's a very heady beer that billows to the rim of the glass with ease. Creamy, airy, and frothy, the foam shows tremendous staying power and laces decoratively against the glass.

The beer's bouquet is as aromatic as any I've known- notions of honeysuckle, botannicals, and rose pedals keep the beer lively and highly aromatic. Underneath the obvious floral tones are softer wheat, bread, and yeast scents that ground the beer. Spicy with white pepper, ground cumin, and dried orange, the phenolic aromas bring balance to the fruit and blooms.

And in taste, the malty sweetness and floral taste translates to honey as well. Smooth, rich, and with a hearty grain sweetness that over takes the palate like powdered sugar and hay, the pilsner flavor and floral hops are alive and well. Balanced with a light earthy bitterness, light grass, and herbal taste; the beer also shows complements of sulfur, acidity, and citric character of apples, pears, and oranges.

Medium bodied, the early carbonation keeps things arid and dry. But as the carbonation fades, the lingering malts lay softly on the mouth and buffer against the spices and warm alcohols.

The beer is very rewarding as it satisfies the taste buds, stomach, and head. But with its restrained hop bitterness and elevated sweetness, it compares more favorably to strong pale ales better than tripel ales.

Very hazy yello colour, big white head. Served in a chalice glass, while I try to get a corn one. Smell is sweet, spicy, vanilla, pears, apple. Alcohol comes in the end. Palate is creamy, like silk, bready. Taste of spices, fruits, oranges, apple, pie, marzipan. Really good.
