Top to bottom, like the 2003 Tigers, this one is awful. Looks ok, but as old people like to remind you, you can’t put lipstick on a pig! It smells like cooked bad meat. Seriously. I just don’t want to go on.

Good tripel with a great hoppiness. Crisp and well balanced notes of citrus, vanilla and pepper. Smooth and complex. Bitterness in the aftertaste ruins the smoothness.

Pours s slightly clouded golden color with a huge, white, pillowy head atop.

Smells of peppery spices, lemon zest and dried oranges, together with additional blood oranges.

Has a light, well carbonated mouthfeel, making this refreshing throughout.

Smells of kardamom coated lime peel and lighter, sweeter oranges. Turns quite peppery then with a soothing, calming and furtermore refreshing yeast pillow, slowly unfolding onto the palate. Finishes with bread dough, peppery and a note of juicier turning lime and dried elderflowers.

Quite nice, with a convincing balance and depth to it. Its mouthfeel is surprisingly light, while the beer manages to produce a convincing complexity.

Pours a hazy golden color with a huge white top of head that dissolves in a medium pace and leaves some thick lacings. Aroma is strong with notes of citrus,red apples,honey, sweet cereals, floral hops . The taste start of with fruity sweetness, and some spicy dryness. The finish has a decent amount of bitterness as well as floral notes in the taste. The flavour is like a classic triple, but it lacks something to make it stand out. Smooth and oily mouthfeel, but maybe a little flat. Medium carbonation with light body.
A good and enjoyable triple, but far from the best example of the style.

Very dry, phenolic, citrusy, and vinous grapey. Some cloves and coriander. Getting Pilsner malt too. Not bad.

Poured from the 75 cl. bottle into a tulip glass. Best before end of year 2016.

A pretty solid perfect looking brew. Glowing lemon gold, with excellent clarity but a touch of cloudy body color. Excellent rising fast volcano of carbonation in the middle of the glass. Head is frothy and rocky, bleach white, with an excellent eggshell and creamy top. Easily makes two fingers or more off the pour with more aggression and leaves a great bowled puck while it slowly settles. An absolute great looker of a brew, practically perfect.

Fantastic aroma coming off this. Candy and slight sweet qualities but far more perfume smelling of these nice garden like floral notes. Has a sensing hop angle that gets a bit soapy though in it's bitterness and is quite less on estery sensing flavors. Still pretty neat though on the nose.

Palate gets a bit unexpected and jaring slightly. Very light bodied brew and mixing senses of wet flat carbonation. A very odd mid palate that is really getting into a soapy character in flavor, with hints of lemon tangy soda quality. Finally some of the Belgian yeast like flavors make an appearance, with some slight malt sweetness but there's a very odd aftertaste that comes out almost menthol and citrus flavored.

Interesting tripel but stands out quite odd from the classics, and really stands out particularly weird amongst the other produced better Belgian classics.

330 ml bottle into chalice, no bottle dating. Pours moderately cloudy golden amber color with a thin white head with poor retention, that reduces to a thin ring of lace. Minimal lacing on the glass, with some light streaming carbonation. Aromas of apricot, pear, apple, white grape, clove, pepper, honey, bread, herbal, and yeast earthiness. Very nice aromas with good balance and complexity of malt and fruity/spicy yeast ester notes; with good strength. Taste of pear, apple, apricot, white grape, clove, light pepper, honey, bread, herbal, and yeast earthiness. Lingering notes of pear, apple, apricot, white grape, clove, honey, bread, herbal, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Nice balance and complexity of fruity/spicy yeast and malt flavors; with a good malt/yeast balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a smooth and moderately crisp mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this was a good tripel. Good balance and complexity of fruity/spicy yeast and malt flavors; and very smooth and crisp to drink. A nicely enjoyable offering.
