look: 4.5 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Great beer.

L: very good, lasting top, bright golden colour;
S: apple and apricot; it seems like your having a fruit beer, but there isn't any fruit in it; they say it's the special yeast that has been used, which created this very original, refreshing smell;
T: a decent, mild triple, maybe lacking some hops, yeasty and malty, apple;
M: round, good harmony with the alcohol;
O: in the Netherlands only a few brewers can really brew; the Leckere is one of them. This one can compare to Belgian triples.

2.97/5  rDev -13.2%
look: 2.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

Bottle 300 ml, at home. Poured into a tulip. ABV is 8%. Beer is made with organically grown ingredients.

Light orange colour, with a very thin white head, less than one finger in height. Very short retention. No activity in the glass except for some bits and pieces floating around in the beer's body.
Aroma is fruits, mostly apricot, and yeast. Quite subtle. Some sugars and alcohol too.
Taste is sweet up front, with fruits again and some yeasty notes, becomes slighty bitter at the very end, just once you think there is no aftertaste on this one. Nothing to be excited about though.
Thin (for a tripel) to medium body, average carbonation.
An average for this style.

A: densely cloudy, with orange with significant suspended sediment. No visible rising carbonation and less than a finger of quickly disapating head.
S: rich orange marmalade, orange rind, well designed flavor of which this dark orange flavor is the basis, but it extends outwards from there into other places that I can't quite place. yeast smell blends into the orange seamlessly. I don't even really think about hops and malt.
T: alcohol has a chemical and astringent quality, a relatively sharp bitterness although I didn't pour the yeast, dark orange underneath, slight creamy quality,
M: Extremely subtle carbonation, almost flat, astringent,
O: Ok, some interesting qualities but I wouldn't jump to drink this one.

A clear, orange golden beer with a thin head.

Smell is hoppy, flowery and has a fruity yeast profile. Some higher alcohols, which are not sharp.

Taste is fruity with notes of peach. A clean bitterness nicely balances the smooth, but still 8% alcohol. A light flowery hop note is present. The yeast adds some higher alcohols, fruit but not as abundant as other Trappist tripels. This makes the beer a bit bland. Body is light and drinkability is dangerously good.
