3.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottled. Blond colour, reasonable head. Orangey, yeasty lively nose. Very sweet, medium bodied. All the orangey sweetness leads to a sticky mouthfeel, which takes the edge off an otherwise intriguing beer.

This is a wonderfully complex beer that bis best served at about 55F in a good tulip shaped glass. Below that it loses a lot of the depth.

Beautiful golden color with a thick head. Light aroma. Sweet and fruity taste. Light on the hops. My opinion, it’s a great brew.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours slightly hazy orangey-amber color with a huge, billowy white head that diminishes slowly and leaves heavy lacing. Aroma is sweet, yeasty, citrus with esters and spice. Flavor is sweet with lots of tart and bitter notes spread throughout the mouth, as well as some spice and pepper. Medium body and mild carbonation makes it very drinkable - which at 8.5% for a 750 ml bottle makes it a bit hazardous. Not spectacular but a nice belgian triple overall.

Hazy dark-blond color; big creamy head. Nice spicy aroma and flavor, some malt, dryish. Not complex but good.
Orange-amber color, nice perlage, thick creamy head (wonderful!). Strong but balanced: delicate malt and old hops aroma; spicy malt with some hop aggressivity in the mouth. A classic and very good Tripel.

2.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
Ewwwww. First, I do not like Tripels. Aroma was strong, sweet, and fruity. Light golden color with a lot of bubbles and a big thick white head. Flavor was overpowering. Strong and woody with a lof of fruit as well. Huge head, nice lacing. Palate was ok. Too thick and sweet for me. I really did not like this beer, though

UPDATED: APR 20, 2004 Sweet and slightly syrupy, this tripel is more malty, fruity and woody than most and is fairly consistent throughout; There is a mild bitterness, but it is pleasant and complementary; The nose has an artificially sweet, but lightly malty aroma; Gold in color and clear; White head is sizeable on the pour and has good retention and blankets the glass with lacing
