3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottled. Golden with spectacled yeast flor, white lacy head. Sweet sugured wheat taste, but distinctly un-honied. Lightly aroma. Not my personal favourite style but a trappist ale none the less.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Very pleasant. Golden honey color, slightly cloudy with moderate head. The head collapsed to 1 mm pretty quickly, but then lasted the entire glass.
Flavor was a great clovey peppery mix, followed by a slight but consistent metallic flavor. (This detracted from flavor and overall score.)
Flavors and aroma were consistent through entire bottle. Carbonation was present throughout without being to fizzy.
I'd happily drink it again, but I wouldn't spend the $9.00 it cost me at my local retailer.

2.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
This beer pours a very bright, but cloudy yellow with lots and lots of floaties hovering about. It has a very sweet aroma hinting of fruits. The taste is very full and reminds me of a weiss beer. I really didn't enjoy the taste much because the wheaty flavor is not something that I have ever grown accustomed to. I couldn't drink very much of this just because I really don't like the flavor.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Active on opening, forms a fair white head. Hazy yellow brew is almost luminescent as light diffuses through it. Sweet aroma is round and fruity. Sweet flavor but not saccharin. It settles and fills the whole mouth, bitter only slighty at the end, all balanced by a hint of bready yeastiness. Super duper stuff.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle conditioned. Straw gold, thin white head and good condition. Some unavoidable yeast floaters and a layer of very pale yeast at the bottle bottom. Grainy duvel like perfumed nose with hints of alcohol yeast and coconut. Bread and grain flavours in the mouth with some yeastiness and a suggestion of malted milk. Finish was soft and mouthfillingly sweet. Prefered it to Westmalle tripel.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Foamy blond beer with a steeply alcoholic aroma and flavour. A very vineous brew, difficult to drink at times.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Hazy yellow w/ thick white head & lots of suspended particles. Nose is yeasty, fruity (peaches, citrus), & spicy. Full-bodied. Sweet & bread-like at first, but light & yeasty in the middle. Finish is warm & dry w/ a nice alcohol tingle.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Yeasty aroma, spicy, typical triple like. Cloudy yellow coloured with a nice remaining head. Typical triple taste too, but it sure distinguishes itself from brews like it. Taste is quite spicy, a bit bitter, fruits are present. Pleasant full palate.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
average head which died very very fast. hazy, with some small bitties floating around. lighish yellow amber. hop aromas with floral and perfume. maybe some fruit, like pears. moderately yeasty, too, like a belgian. starts off kind of bitter, but turns sweet in finish, which is pretty short. texture was kind of dry. overall, an average belgian. still very good for beer, but not a standout in its class.
