look: 2.75 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.25

33cl bottle: This one pours a crystal clear very pale golden color. There was a big frothy white head on it that leaves some lacing. The aroma is good, but a little light. Some yeast, banana, apple and wheat notes. Very faint spices: I almost missed them at first. The taste is a little thin. Not bad, but of the lighter side for a tripel. Some yeast and breadiness, citrus, wheat, a faint dryness. OK but thoroughly uninspiring. The Duvel I had yesterday was light years ahead of this.

Got this one in France while on vacation last summer.

From a 75cl swing-top bottle into a chalice.
Best Before 16 December 2015

APPEARANCE: Pours a huge, 3+ finger, medium looking, fluffy, creamy white head with great retention. Clear golden yellow with very active carbonation. Head slowly fades to a thick foam cap and leaves some good lacing down the glass. A foamy film remains with lots of lacing. Good looking triple.

SMELL: A big nose of toasted and pale malts, bread, green fruits, apples, flowers an some spicy yeast notes. Good.

TASTE: Some pale malts, green fruit sweetness and apples up front, then some floral hops and bitterness at the swallow. Hoppy and spicy aftertaste of flowers, spicy yeast and alcohol notes with a touch of green fruit sweetness as balance. Pleasant, but a little restraint in the flavor. Not as impressive or as forthcoming as some of the bigger names, but still well balanced.

PALATE: Medium body and medium levels of carbonation. Creamy on the palate, goes down smooth and finishes rather dry. Good feel for the style.

OVERALL: While the flavor isn't quite as bold as some of the more well known triples out of Belgium, this is a well balanced and enjoyable brew with a nice, smooth and creamy feel that supports the show nicely. One worth having if you're out in the boonies of France.

I got it from Italy, 0,33l bottle. I think this is France brewery,not Belgium..

A-Very light in color,one finger white foam,and lots of bubbles in the glass.

S-Lots of different fruits,grape mostly. Think that smell is more then interesting.

T/M-Carbonated,very low bitter aftertaste,lots of fruits and spices in the mouth.

O-Must admit that i like it. It is not enough thick taste and maybe too much carbonated,but,i could drink it often.

I bought this beer during my summer holiday in Northern France 2011.

A - A white head and a bright yellow fluid, quick retention and the color is to light for a triple.

S - Light honey smell mixed with a flowery and fruity hop.

T - This is more like a ferm blond, the body isn't just heavy enough. The aftertaste is bitter and the rest is as the smell all ready gave away.

M - To much carbonation and to thin in body.

O - Nothing special here, but maybe it's nice on a warm summer day.

Pale yellow color with a dense and abundant head and leaving laces. Became hazy at the last pour.
Nice addicted citric aroma with sugar cane notes, looks like they did some dry hopping.
Flavor of honey, sweet malt and wheat with hints of Cointreau liquor coming from its 8% ABV and hops. Dry and fruity aftertaste.
Medium body with low carbonation. Wheat gave some roundness to it.
It was a positive surprise, it remembered me of the Duvel 2012 edition Tripel hop, though not at the same or complexity (given the latter was simply extraordinary).
Haven’t been lucky with French beers (including this brewery), this one brought me some hop, I mean hope.

look: 3 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

Yellow color with a dense and lasting head with nice lacing left along the glass.
A very deceptive 8% ABV which could catch out the drinker if not careful. The nice medium body had a dry and fruity aftertaste. A nice beer.

Would definitely try this again.

Brought back from France by my wife. Pours a golden colour with a white head. Aromas of yeast, malts, citrus & lemon. Tastes of lemon, spice, caramel leading to quite a sweet feel. Overall one I enjoyed and would drink again.
