4.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Goes down really smooth for a triple ale. Crisp, Clean and Robust flavor. Dirty with yeast, instructions on the side of bottle. Make sure and read the label. I like my beer dirty with that nutty flavor from the yeast.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Hazy golden/brown with a big white head. Aroma of malts, yeast, ripe fruits and some spices. Some notes of alcohol. Flavour is yeasty, fruity sweetness, alcohol. Decent Tripel, but not exemplary for the style.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Tripel arrogante e alcolica, una delle esponenti più conosciute di questo genere. Dolce e decisa, non troppo complessa. Fa respirare a pieni polmoni l’animo belga trdizionale, senza pretendere nulla di più.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Amber-golden in colour with a fast fading white head. Light sparkling and clear liquid. Noses a bit skunky, mainly of barley, sweet malts, barnyard, floral and sweet fruit notes. Offers a light fizz and a slick somewhat light oily texture. Full bodied beer with a fruity sweetness. The finish is well balanced and medium long. Good stuff!

3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Brought back from the states in May. Bottled in November 2012.
Aroma: Orange, tropical fruits, sugar cane, caramel. Great complexity, wide palette. Also gingerbread, cinnamon. A very fruity nose with a lot of sugar and yeast.
Appearance: Golden amber with a lot of yeast particles. Average thickness head, half creamy half rocky, lasting also average. Lacing doesn’t stick.
Taste: The attack is characterized by the presence of caramelized sugars, effervescence and alcohol. Caramel is indeed very present and developing burnt notes. Spices are doing a discreet work, may be too discreet; with slight notes of cinnamon and clove mixed with bubble gum, vanilla and almond. I was expecting an explosion of flavors but didn’t happen. Flavors are showing a good complexity but their strength is very average. Mouth feel is all within sugars with very few bitterness and a very light acidity. (too light). Texture is round, thick and alcohol is warming. Without being extraordinary, it indeed a good tripel; a sweet tripel.
