The color is light golden and slightly hazy
Head white, built of medium and large bubbles, fairly quickly descends, leaving only a slight trace on the glass.
In the aroma you can smell the honey, spices, but also stable, maltiness, and the resin.
The taste is a copy of smell, we have a little honey, herbs Belgian, once again stable, it is also silage.
In Bersalis bitterness is too high, a little seasoning.
The loading medium toward high, in this case, as appropriate for me. Alcohol well hidden, reveals its presence only after being heated. Oud Beersel brewery brewed beer in taste quite complete and full-bodied but not heavy. I would recommend.

this one did very little for me. its awesome to see more of their stuff showing up in the market, but this is a far cry from the quality of their sours, and i dont think is the best representation of the style you can find. it comes across really thin to me, like almost lacking that fleshy oaty base i like so much in the style, no wheat texture either. while i do love how bubbly it is, carbonated like a champ, the watery body is an issue, really unflattering to the style. its definitely a little oxidized too, not sure of a bottle date, but it has a slight skunked thing going on, starting to take hold. unlike many tripels, this is quite dry, which i also find pleasing, not sugary and teeth coating. i need more grain flavor though, it seems like this crazy yeast has nothing to cling to, maybe too much added sugar, not enough of a mash, im not sure. i dont dislike it, and think it may be good to turn the uninitiated on to belgian beers in general, light enough, and a real well hidden abv, but its just not built like a tripel should be in my opinion, and falls short of expectations for me. gets the buzz cranking though...

Two fingers of fine, fluffy off-white head cap this reddish orange brew. A proliferation of yeast sediment flourishes.

Smells of vanilla cake, orange, phenols and taffy with slight floral notes at the end.

Creamy with a fruity blast immediately followed by a sharp alcohol heat. Notes of vanilla, carob, taffy, lemon and syrupy sugar coat the tongue.

This one leans toward heavy and a bit more in-yer-face than I'm looking for in a Tripel, but it will definitely warm your insides and that's not always a bad thing, especially in the middle of this brutally cold winter.

This is a fairly good tripel.

Slightly hazy bubbly gold, it has a medium off-white fizzy head that soon thins to a thin ring.

Aroma is pear wine, yeasty bread dough, wet hay.

Taste is creamy, raisiny bread dough, apples, bread crust, strong white bread-dough aftertaste, a bit sweet.Full-bodied, good, and fairly easy to drink, but a bit simple and one-dimensional.
