Earlier Rating: 6/9/2003 Total Score: 2.7
The colour is quite treble, the head is beautiful white. Malty, spicy aromas. Quite mild flavours, long spicy aftertaste.

puzzl (3257) - New York, New York, USA - JUL 1, 2005
UPDATED: JUL 24, 2005 Lemon, orange, spiciness, in the acidic aroma. Flavor hits up front fast with very sour fruit, and carries though the whole body of the beer until a quick though satisfying dry finish. Not a terribly complex beer but the sourness is growing on me quite a bit.

szkot (100) - Minnesota, USA - JUN 1, 2005
Pours golden with a very large head. Aroma is sweet, reminiscent of honeyed fruit. I get a tiny bit of sourness in the finish. Not my favorite beer.

MaiBockAddict (1497) - Good Beer Bar Deprived, New Jersey, USA - JUN 29, 2005
750 ml. Deep yellow, some small floaties, nice white head. Fruity aroma with slight alcohol. Malty, with pale malts coming though, and decent fruitiness. Malty flavors linger.

rederic (3207) - montrťal, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 13, 2005
Hazy golden hue, light foamy head, bready aroma, fruity nose coming from the yeast and pale malt follows through on a medium-bodied palate with fruity flavors, pala malt accent in a acicic and shy bitter hop finish.

Marko (4263) - Split / Zagreb, CROATIA - JUL 9, 2005
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

Sanchex (224) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 16, 2005
Spicy citrus aroma. Full frothy head. Gold in colour. Very refreshing taste. Vibrant grapefruit, cloves, coriander, ginger. Nice bitter finish to round it off the malty spicy sweetness. Cheers!

PorterPounder (6136) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - MAY 21, 2005
Habersham Beverage Warehouse, Savannah, Ga, 11.2 oz bottle. Pours a murky medium orange with a thick and frothy white head. Aroma has hints of bananas, and cloves. Similar flavor profile as the aroma with some underlying fruitiness accompanying the cloves and bananas - a bit of bubble gum in there as well. Mouthfeel is most decenlty thick and creamy. An excellent Tripel.
