Brought back from my Belgium road trip last year. Poured from a 330ml bottle, a slightly hazy amber colour with a white foamy head. Aromas of fruits including orange & pineapple as well as grains, malts & yeast. Tastes of orange, pineapple, apple, grapes, light wine as well as hints of citrus, grains & spice. Aftertaste has a fruity alcoholic kick with a fair amount of bitterness. Overall a decent triple, enjoyable, but no more than mid range in quality.

Poured from a brown 11.2 oz. bottle. Has a dark golden color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is malts, some spices, light fruits. Taste is malts, fruits, banana stands out, spice, alcohol is present. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall is a decent beer, but there are much better tripel's out there.

Poured 330ml bottle into 350ml beer glass.

I'm still learning about this style.

Nice dark, golden yellow.

Vigorous pour produced big, loose head.

Nose is spicy yeast, orange zest and bubble gum and spicy baking aromas. NIce.

Palate is not as complex as the nose but still nice. Yeast and bubble gum/spice. Well-rounded.

Mouth is ok. Quite creamy.

Overall this is pretty good but there are much better ones out there..

Bright golden colour with a very thick anf frothy head of foam that retains well and leaves lacing on the glass. Nice smell of banana, oranges, yeast and coriander. The taste is not as full as the smell, but still quite good: malts, oranges, raisin, coriander and honey with subtle hops and not so subtle overripe fruit in the aftertaste. Alcohol slowly makes its entry towards to end, but doesn't dominate. It makes the mouth feel a bit stingy though. A good tripel, but not extraordinary.

Very spicy for a tripel, snappy palate stings at first. Foamy head fades, hazy dark golden body. Aroma is hops, coriander, butterscotch. taste is sharp, burns the palate, but no aftertaste. This is a bit different, and a bit too spicy for my taste (compared to the style).

A 330ml bottle with a best before date of 10th October 2016 and poured into a Chimay goblet glass.

Appearance: The beer poured a clear deep golden colour with a fluffy two finger white head which lasts a long time and leaves stringy lacing.

Aroma: Mainly bready malts and unripe banana with hints of pear.

Taste: Flavour is strong with sweet banana, clove, honey and bready malts. There was also a hint of spicyness and the booze comes through towards the end.

Mouthfeel: Dry, medium bodied with good carbonation.

Overall: This was quite a nice tripel especially when comparing its price to other decent tripels.
