In a sampler of beers from the Limburg region of Belgium.
Pours a orange tone, light brown. Full head fills the rest of my Hommel Bier goblet, lots of carbonation.
Smells, well not all like a triple. Much more like a Pils actually.Bitter malt, hop, light yeast, mineral-rich water, light bitter herbalness.Light earthiness in the background. Hint of pepper, spice. Really weak however, lacking the creamy spice, yeast graininess of the best.
Flavor is also a bit strange.Pils-like bitterness, light fruitiness is found after several minutes. Plum, pepper, spice, lots of coriander. Finishing tart and malty.
Honestly this tastes like a Helle's Bock, not a triple at all.Bitter, tart, really unbalanced, lacking every ccritic point for me for a good Triple.
Odd beer, will not drink again

look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 2 | feel: 4 | overall: 1.5

Pours a slightly hazy, orange brew with a rather small head.
The aroma is slightly sweet with some malts & hops and, suprising enough, roasted nuts, coffee and herbs and spices.
The taste is quite tart and yeasty with some hops, it flows out in a very awkward and strong herbal, spicy (coriander?) earthiness that overpowers every other taste and ruins the complexness otherwise found in this beer. The mouthfeel is good but the beer is not drinkable at all.

Not a classic belgian triple by any means. Very unbalanced and incredibly undrinkable. I barely managed to finish my 33cl. Arguably the worst triple I've ever had. Not recommended unless you're very adventurous.

Best before 09-06. Poors in with nice white head theats thick and lasts quiet wel. Later on it forms a beautifull landscape with mountains on top of your perfectly clear bronze colored beer.
Nose is malty and alcoholic and litle oxidised. Lots of fruity and spice yeastarome makes nose quiet pleasant. Taste is strong alcoholic and malty as the noseimpression was but with more oxidation. Mouthfeel is sweet in beginning and bitter in aftertaste. No big enjoyment in there either though. Drinkability is probably quiet good when real fresh but mine was quiet oxidised and not too amusing... why can't they put bottle conditioning on this one!?

A: Clear pale amber colour, almost no head. Very little carbonation.

S: Banana, peach apricot, apple all rather sweet, orange peal

T: the smell is also in the taste, but with more hops and a hint of coffee, overall this isn't to bad. Even though every now and then you get something soapy not overpowering everything else, but bothering never the less

M: A bit thin, under-carbonated, alcohol quite noticeable.

O: Not a bad beer, but I probably wouldn't buy it again.
