3.54/5  rDev -2.5%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

A: Light gold in color; almost transparent; aggressive bubbles rising; minimal head, dissipated almost immediately.

S: Fruity, alcohol, yeasty, floral.

T: Spicy, bitter, floral, fruity, highly carbonated.

M: Comes on smooth and dry; then transitions to bitter and alcoholy.

O: Not my favorite triple. A nice ABV to get things started. Spices are nice too but this tripel is a little bitter and unsettling. I have to laugh at the apt description below - "headache in a bottle." :)

Purchased this one in a beer store in northern France at a good price

This is an excellent tripel living up to other belgians standards.

Aromas of orange, banana and spices.

An very decent offer, cheers!

Pours a golden colour with medium head and retention. Good lace. Aroma of fruits, oranges, banana, spices, cloves. Almost full body, alcohol is present in the palate. Taste of oranges, cloves,fruits, spices. Great.

Hazy golden pour with a tall white head. Smells of pilsner hops, spices and caramel. Sweet, with a metallic feeling, with notes of yeast, sugar and spices.

Clear dark golden color with off-white head. Aroma has much alcohol and some yeast esters. Taste starts sweet and estery, grainy, with a hint of honey and the finish is more bitter and earthy. Body is medium, quite dry and slightly acidic. Carbonation is on the high side. Not bad overall but the alcohol is too present for my taste.

A - Hazy golden body with a thin foamy white head. A very appealing appearance!

S - Light, fruity. Citrus, apple and yeast.

T - Light fruity and round but also a bit spicy. Fits the smell.

M - Smooth with some carbonation, light and little oily.

O - A very enjoyable and balanced Belgian beer.

3.71/5  rDev +2.2%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Light orange haze with a nice full head of foam that quickly fades but keeps the surface covered with lacing. Smell and taste both have citric and earthy flavours, all in all not very complex. The 8.7 abv is barely noticable; it's very easy to drink. I have mixed feelings about this one: smell and taste are fine and remind me of a decent but not exceptional beer like Cuvee des Trolles, but where is the promised gruut? There is no herbiness/spiciness whatsoever. I got another one cellared; maybe these babies need some maturing.

EDIT: Just drank one that had been maturing for two years and indeed: it's got quite some nice herbes and spices going on. It has also become a tad too sweet for my liking. Still upped the score a bit though.

Poured into tulip.
Aggressive pour reveals slightly hazy orange amber beer with 2 finger white head, moderate retention.
Smell - yeasty, spicy, fruity.
Taste - is not so poor, as other Palm beers have got, semisweet, boozy. Medium body and carbonation.

Now, THIS is what I expect from a tri^le bier, much more than a Westmale. This is full-bodied and my mouth waters already just looking at it.
