look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Poured into snifter. Thin head ring. No lace..

Nose is whiskey and light citrusy fruit, creamy malt.

Pears, peaches, limes, grape sour like lambrusco amabile on the finish.

Smooth but tart mouth. Medium dryness.

Nice fruity tripel. Very good Belgian craftsmanship.

Served at cellar temperature into Westmalle Chalice.
Pours a lovely clear amber, medium carbonation. Lovely initial head, which does fall to a slither.

Aroma is like a light peaty single malt whiskey, with a fizz of hops. Certainly has me intrigued what the taste will be.

Bang, that is a bitter first sip, but full of flavour, a real warming malt, not quite like any tripel I have had before.

Feel is a fraction on the artificial sweetness side, which is unusual given the relatively mild 8% abv

Overall, a very solid brew, one of the most well rounded I have tried, recommended.

Sampled from a 0.33l bottle (€4.40) at Gollem in Antwerp on 21SEP17.

Poured into a chalice, it was a clear, bright, medium-golden hue. Had plentiful, aggressive carbo and a creamy, 1/2" off-white head. The topping lasted well, with good lace left behind. Had a mild nose, with a mix of fruitiness and spices. Body was medium, and it was light and airy on the tongue, with some prickle.

Tasted a touch bready, with pale fruit (pear, green apple) present. Had a light honeyish sweetness with hints of candi sugar. The finish was dry and presented some yeasty, spicy qualities. A solid Tripel! Prosit!

A nice, complex tripel; floral aromatics with lots of flavors to unpack. Not too spritzy in the mouth. It went well with a sandwich. Will have again.

Poured from the 750ml bottle into a tulip glass. Consume before October 2016 according to notch. Capped bottle, big hiss while opening, no gush.

Roaring on fire of a looker. Deep orange with an almost clear appearance, but with lots of fast rising carbonation and populating the head quickly. Beer looks like it's alive sitting in front of you. Head creation can be large, but a controlled pour makes an easy three finger off white head. Soupy and soapy creamed appearance that has big retention. This doesn't budge at all, quite surprising on a weak looking head makeup, but the classic tripel staying head power is here and huge. Rocky clumping and lacing to match.

Stellar aroma. Floral and spiced honey qualities abound. Slight perfume notes mixing in with wonderful candy store qualities. Hints of real ripping barley malt qualities it seems to, a great smelling tripel.

What an extremely diverse palate. First sip is some mineral carbonation, then a real soft taste of perfumed and blossom honey. Interesting an wild finish. Hints of small nuts almost peanut butter quality, with a big amount of white wine grape like flavors. Huge floral tones are all over this, and with an extremely simple body, which leaves behind syrup and even is lighter than most tripels with a nearly spritzy champagne like body. Juiced grape, low key sweetness and also hinting herbs slightly and peppermint aftertaste.

There's a lot going on in here, its nutty quality is a bit of a wild herring for me, but everything about this brew is just bang on nailed practically with wonderful diverse flavors to explore.

My bottle, I'm afraid was almost three years past the best-buy date. Arend Tripel had almost no head (just a cream-colored, very thin layer). No lacing to speak of. The aroma was of almost overripe fruit, fruit cake, tropical fruit, candy sugar, and possibly a hint of alcohol. Taste is of all that, with no bitterness or booze. Mouthfeel is medium, and this Arend Tripel finished semi-sweet and seemed quite aged.

On tap at Brussels Beer Weekend.
Hazy dark gold with speckles. 4
Doughy bread starter nose. 3.75
Sugar up front, herbs, yellow apple skin, chalk, and coriander. 4
Medium, sticky, round. 3.75

Deep - nice play between hops and fruit. But missing the white pepper, which leaves it too sweet. Delicate overall, which might not suit a festival, but I won’t chase this just the same. 4

The color of tea, cloudy.
The head very modest and short-lived, white color.
Malt aroma, strong honey, promises a lot of sweets.
Taste intense, clear, there are plenty of honey, very strong and very sweet tea, sweet counters delicate acidity and a touch of alcohol.
Hop bitterness at the finish only weak and very short.
Saturation fairly high, here relevant.
Alcohol is true perceptible but not mind.
Aren Tripel a pretty good beer, smooth, slightly oily.

Poured from a 330 ml bottle into a goblet.

L - Bottle conditioned. Medium golden color, just slightly milky instead of clear. Pure white head is thick initially but fades quickly. Light lacing on the glass.

S - Aroma is clean and peppery/spicy. Some bready malt and a lemon note. No obvious hops. Reminds me more of a saison on the nose than a tripel.

T - Flavors of crisp pilsner malt dominate initially, followed by brief cotton candy sweetness and then grassy hops. Peppery spice in the finish (could be actual spices or yeast character).

F - Medium body. Full, slightly prickly carbonation. Medium hops bitterness. Moderate alcohol presence.

O - This is an unusual tripel, with it's spicy, saison-like character. But it is clean, well-made and drinkable.

Not my favorite tripel. Much darker than most examples, and more boozy. Taste and nose consisted heavily of scorched caramel and a hint of dark fruits.
