Had a bottle in Ghent, as I felt is was only appropriate. Light and crisp at first, but too clean. A nice bubblegum aroma and flavor develop as it warms and there's also respectable hopping to leave a biting lemon rind hop aftertaste. Worth a try if you're in Ghent, but Belgium has better tripels out there.

This is a very regular tripel. Straightforward. Because of the drinkability I won't say anything bad, but on the other side there isn't much to say in a positive way either.

L: okay; regular top; not too foamy;
S: quite yeasty, little funk;
T: nice, quite light alcohol, finish missing;
M: drinks great, but without a finish...
O: good beer.

Pours a hazy golden color with a medium top of white head that dissolves quite fast and leaves some lacings on the glass. The aroma is with small notes of tropical fruits, red apples, honey and light malts. The taste is fruity and sweet with medium bitterness and some yeasty spicy notes. The finish lacks a little lenght in the aftertaste and the flavour is quite weak. Mouthfeel is smooth and creamy with a high carbonation and a medium body.
All in all is a decent enough triple , but is a lot of better ones out there.

Had this on-tap at Brasserie Beck in Washington, D.C.

A: Beautiful cloudy yellow that practically radiates with light; forms a magnificent white, lacy head.

S: Mostly bready malts and yeast. Not much other than general freshness.

T: Strong on the bready malts. Hops poke out just a bit slightly in the middle and imbibe this brew with a hint of lychee, banana, and other tropical fruits. Ends dry on a strong Belgian yeast note.

M/D: Nicely carbonated; goes down smoothly. The alcohol is stronger than this brew reveals and sneaks up on you.

It's pouring an inch of nice white foam on top, with a light golden color beneath it.

Smell is a pleasant fresh and light smell, and a lot of CO2 at first.

The taste is light, a little bit of alcohol and some lemon at the end. With the aftertaste the "lightness" becomes a little bit warmer with still bits of lemon left.

Too much carbonation in my opinion for a fine mouth feel, and a medium body, but the mouth feel is pretty good.

Not one of my personal favorites but yet a decent beer.

A very lively one this beer is a light pour produced well over two inches of foam. Color is a semi hazy amber brown. Smells pretty plain actually no real funk or yeast or even ethanol. Taste is similar to the Dubbel the house yeast is very cloyingly dry and somewhat fruity rather than bitter. Worst part I see in this beer despite the lackluster flavor is the carbonation very bubbly and hard to even sip which is usually a deal breaker with beers.

Overall again it's an interesting beer but would pass on a second.

Had this "new to me" Belgian on tap at Max's the other day.

The beer pours a solid gold color with very good head retention and lacing. On the nose I get some light aromas of honey, ginger and banana. The beer is very nice on the palate, with moderate sweet flavors of honey, butter and cantaloupe. The beer is a bit simple and one dimensional, but is still quite pleasant. The beer has a fairly light mouthfeel and finish, with the abv. very well disguised. Finish is smooth and soft.

Not a beer I would probably seek out, but a nice enough beer none the less.
