COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The king of the abbey beers. It is amber-gold and pours with a deep head and original aroma, delivering a complex, full bodied flavour. Pure enjoyment! Secondary fermentation in the bottle. (Temp: 8-10ºC)

mullet (849) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - DEC 30, 2003
Beautiful orange colour, amazing fluffy head with dimples. Aroma is yeasty and orangey - pretty standard and a fair bit like Delerium Tremens. Not much sweetness, pretty lean with carbonation. Alcoholic dry finish. Refreshing. Nice but not exceptional.

Yankovitch333 (612) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - DEC 25, 2003
Pours a light orange, with a huge puffy white head. Aroma is spicey, yeasty, and citrusy. Starts off a bit sweet and eventually mellows. It's fruity, but hops make it a bit spicey.The finish is dry and lingering. It was also a tad sour. This is a pretty good beer.

JorisPPattyn (8328) - Ursel, BELGIUM - NOV 23, 2003
Hazy orange; huge head, yellowish and collapsing. Bit of chalk, cookies, orangezest but sweet. Might be some coriander around in the nose. Taste is mainly sweet, vague orangezest (mainly on the palate); aroma rather than taste/bitterness from the hops. Sweetish, slightly spicey and yeasty finish. Alcohol well hidden. More rounded than most tripels (yeast?); very creamy mouthfeel. A bit dull, IMO. Heineken certainly polished the beers a bit, but they haven't become more interesting.

frankR (145) - Davis, California, USA - NOV 21, 2003
UPDATED: JAN 2, 2004 Poured with a huge 'bubble bath' white head, lots of bubbles which indicated lots of carbonation; translucent amber orange in color. Aroma is spicy and acidic with some fruit undertones. Flavor is initially spicy which bites your tongue, then it finishes with a dry bitter sweet hops. Surprisingly the 8.5% alcohol was not apparent. Very enjoyable, can't compare it to other Tripels since it was my first.

lemonlovr (190) - Orland Park, Illinois, USA - OCT 13, 2003
Aroma is made up of spicyness (coriander) as well as some fruitiness (pear and banana). Appearance is a nice glowing golden yellow with a large, quickly dissapating head. Flavor is sweet and fruity up front with a spicy finish with a little alcohol bite. Mouthfeel is satisfying.

3fourths (8495) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - OCT 13, 2003
Cloudy bright orange. Medium white head. Lemons, pears, and grapes are smelled. Highly carbonated. Smells and tastes like cough syrup. Sharp flavor, bubbly on the tongue. Flavors of white grapes and cloves, allspice, and ginger. Very spicey and filling.

stubby (334) - Santee, California, USA - SEP 26, 2003
Loved this triple. Helped me through a rough night of fighting at the inlaws. Orange-y finish with that great warming alcohol that comes with triples. Fine, fine beer, though I prefer doubles.

beerguy101 (5319) - Newark, California, USA - SEP 16, 2003
Blonde gold color. Extremely large white foamy head. Aroma is fruity, yeasty and sweet. A medium bodied tripel. Malts are fruity and sweet. Hops are spicy. Bright yeasts with touches of candy sugar. A very drinkable beer once the head diminishes. Nicely balanced. Smooth taste. Very slight alcohol bite at 8.5%. Touches of apricots and oranges. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is dry. Aftertaste is slightly sweet.

aobecksy (700) - Middle of no where, Ohio, USA - SEP 16, 2003
I broke my promise to never follow a tripple with anoher tripple and this came after the Monkfish (which was to die for) so I was a litle disappointed. Though, it was more refined than the blonde. There was a certain peppery yeastyness that was unexpected, and unwanted.

Kasteelfreak (341) - Fallbrook, California, USA - AUG 29, 2003
Creamy mouthfeel and good head. Aroma is spicy and taste is pretty smooth. I'm not a big fan of tripples, but this one is pretty good. Better than Kasteel.
