Commercial Description

The flavour of this beer is pleasantly soft and is characterized by a delicate bitterness where the balance between malt and hop is based upon a fruity orange taste with a straight fresh after taste.

    Presentation: It was poured from a brown 11.2oz bottle into a goblet. There is a best before date of 19-07-10 on the back label and it was sampled on 7-1-09.

    Appearance: Its head is bright white in color and about one finger in thickness. The light foamy head fades quickly down to just a small ring of foam that makes slick lacing on the glass as I swirl and sip. Under this head is an orangey tan colored liquid which is cloudy and full of tan yeast floaters.

    Smell: The aroma has notes of fresh peeled apple skins, funky yeast and a touch of apple cider vinegar.

    Taste/Mouth: There is a slightly astringent, citrus and hard apple cider flavor with some spicy phenolic character as well. The finish becomes bone dry with flavor notes of dry powdery yeast and some mild leafy hops that add just a touch of bitterness. The carbonation is light and just tickles the tongue. Its body has a medium to full feel and its texture is a little bit thick, almost chewy.

    Notes: I found this Tripel to be just a little ruff around the edges, heavy and well, just a little bit above average. I'm not sure if I just got a bad bottle or maybe it could use some more time to condition in the bottle or maybe less.
