Bought in Cerveteca in Lisbon, drank at home in Coimbra and poured to a Leffe chalice.

A: The body is yellow-ish to orange-y but slightly more yellow. It's a bit opaque which is a downside and had lots of deposit hanging around which is not good. But the one finger thick white head had lots of retention and some lacing.
S: The aroma is mostly yeasty and malty giving prevalence to the belgian yeast.
T&M: The taste is very good being based on three different profiles of citrus, yeast and malts. Basically these three together create a rather sweet major profile that's very interesting with the minor bitterness that comes next. Both the taste and the mouthfeel are very well structured together.
O: I have to say that even by having a weaker presentation and aroma, I find this Tripel better than the Quad from St. Bernardus. Or is it just this beer talking?

From elcervecero. In La Trappe chalice. Playing Tomb Raider 2015. With Pok cheese. Great tripel. Refreshing, well hidden ABV, not too much sugary, with some peach and herbal notes. Perfect carbonation

Elegant. Butterscotch. A gentle pour from a bottle into a tulip glass, but so much head I have to stop. Hazy, golden amber, sedimentary stuff settling at the bottom. Smell: sweet, yeasty, candied orange. Taste: more candied fruit and a slight hop zing. Medium bodied, lovely.
