nick76 (4315) - Tampa, Florida, USA - AUG 8, 2005
The aroma is packed with malt and yeast. The appearance is a hazy deep golden with a nice head. Tastes like liquid bread with alcohol. Lots of malt throughout. Sweet and sour as well. Some spice and citrus. The aftertaste is a little sticky but you get the hops as well as a wheat taste. Pretty darn good!

sayravai (4691) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUL 30, 2005
(Bottled) Hazy golden color with a large, foamy, slightly lacy head. Yeasty and syrupy-sweet, strongly, a bit artificially fruity nose with cardboard hints. Acidic and yeasty, quite neutral flavor with orangey fruitiness, a slightly sweet finish, and low bitterness. Medium-bodied, slightly foamy-carbonated palate with not much alcohol present. A very plain strong ale, but at least itís decently balanced and not cloying.
Earlier Rating: 1/24/2004 Total Score: 3.6
(Bottled, 0.75l) Hazy orange/golden color with a large, cloudy and lacy head. Very fruity, somewhat acidic and yeasty aroma. Banana-fruity, yeasty, honey-sweetish-malty flavor with a peppery, neutral finish and low bitterness. Medium-bodied, medium-carbonated, slightly acidic palate. Very easily drinkable with no signs of alcohol. Pouring the yeast in emphasizes the fruitiness and smooths the acidity. An easy and quite enjoyable triple, although it does lack in hops and complexity. Better from a small bottle. (Bottled @ home) Very hazy, golden color with a lacy and lasting head. Very fruity (banana, strawberry), hefeweizen-like aroma, slightly sour and dryish. Yeasty, reasonably fruity, somewhat sweet, citric-acidic flavor. Some witbierish-peppery spiciness, but not very complex overall. Very foamy-carbonated (at first), medium-bodied, thick and smooth palate. Not quite as good as I recalled from year ago (ok, it was the 7th beer that night). Gets better as it warms up and loses CO2. (Bottled, @ ToT í04 - was 7-4-7-4-15=3.7) Orange-yellow, muddy color. Average, off-white, quite lasting head. Hoppy-yeasty aroma with herbs, grass, soap and vanilla. Slightly sweet, quite bitter flavor. Bitter and acetic finish. Quite full-bodied with oily, syrupy mouthfeel and soft carbonation. A quite good tripel.

OhioDad (2492) - Hilliard, Ohio, USA - JUL 28, 2005
330ml bottle - Pours amber cloudy with a large white head that overblew the tulip several times before I could get it in there. Aroma of spice, yeast, orange and bananna. Flavor is dough, and a touch of spice with a hint of orange peel. On the palate this is quite smooth and drinkable. A nice sour aftertaste becomes pleasant by the end of the beer. Not bad.

UPDATED: SEP 30, 2010 New ratingSo a waiter at Hopdevil pretty much screwed me and TimE over by bringing a 0.33l glass of this while we ordered a 0,25l bottle of their cheaper house blonde claiming they ran out of it or something, In the end instead of arguing like I should have, I figured itís time to rerate. Orange-amber body, big th wh head that went away relatively slow. Sweet nose, completely peach ice tea. Sweet honeyish taste without any bitterness, weak notes of ice tea, weak weak notes of metal, light orange. Slightly dry. Blah, ok enough, but not close to the last few times Iíve had it. 6/4/6/3/13-

Old rating (2005):
Bottle (exactly like the one on the picture), at Tolkienís House, Zagreb.

Drank from the Augustijn trappist glass. Looks like a tripel (heh). Deep orange, big, thick and persistant head. Tons of bubbles. Spicy aroma, bananas. A complex taste, lemony, fruity and spicy, which gets overwhelmed by the lemony sourness, which dominates the mid to late taste and the aftertaste. Interesting, complex at first, but turns one dimensional. I probably like it more than I should. Had it alongside Duvel, and for some reason unknown, everyone at the table agreed that this was far better (before I said anything). Itís only my second triple (I donít count that ChíTi...thing), so Iím probably giving it more than it deserves, but I can always rerate it. In any case, itís a great find (itís only available in that pub I mentioned (in Croatia, I mean)). 7/4/8/4/16
