Coming in a short 330ml brown bottle, BB 31/10/2014, served lightly chilled in a long-stemmed wine goblet.

A: pours a light amber hue with light haze, coming with a thin layer of creamy white froth with good retention, on top of healthy flows of fine carbonation.
S: white date-ish and light prune-ish comes the aroma along with lactic acid drink like sour-sweetness; a good swirl brings up grassiness as of Saaz hops, Taiwanese Ai-Yu herbal jelly and a good density of pale malts. All in all, the aroma comes rather thick and well integrated, not particularly aromatic or estery, but suggesting a rather robust body and flavour. Let’s see.
T: the foretaste comes rather quiet… but a tad sweet as in melted crystal sugar plus sugar cane juice, accompanied with some sweet herbal and white date-ish untertones; the esters are rather understated on the palate, while the good malt body is balanced with an equally weighty hop rate to render a moderate flavour profile throughout and a slightly bitter-sweet finish.
M&O: smoothly carbonated, medium-plus bodied, rounded on the palate and very easy to drink. This Tripel is so… smooth in flavour that each flavour element seems to be so timid as well, leaving hardly anything to stand out to make it memorable.

Color gold is also very clear and very bubbly, almost like champagne. Nose slightly hopped. Unfortunately, the mouth has a bitter little convincing with a touch alcoholic not really pleasant. It tastes like dried leaves and berries in addition to a metallic aftertaste or glass that is strong enough to return. Bad "cuvée" or just bad beer?
