3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a hazy orange with a big lasting white head and lively carbonation. Aroma is huge ripened citrus and sweet malts. At first I thought I had finally found a Belgian that did not impress me but I was wrong. This is not the best I have ever had but it is indeed pretty impressive. Flavor is tart fruits and rich spices. Ten minutes later and the head is still there fluffy as ever.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
330 ml bottle. Pours a mostly clear yellow gold with a massive, frothy white head. Lively carbonation. Aroma reminds me very much of hay. Flavor is sweetgrass with some tart green apples. The alcohol is fairly well hidden. A bit thin, but easy to drink.

2.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Pours an atractive hazy cider-gold with a lovely white head. The aroma is pretty nice - peaches and citrus mingle with musty cellar. But the flavor is a huge disappointment. Sour and sharp with a bit of over-microwaved tupperware container, watery finish like the runoff from blueberries, Mouthfeel is thin and astringent.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle. Huge fluffy beige head over a hazy orange body. Delicious acidic fruit aroma; citrus, dried apricot and green apples. Mild spices and yeast as well. Both sweet and fruity flavors, orange peels, peaches, pale malts and spices. Crisp and lively mouthfeel. Alcohol very well hidden. Dangerously easy to drink. This is my type of beer...

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: APR 7, 2008 Bottle 0.33 l. Hazy beige yellow with one of the thickest marshmallow heads I’ve seen. Citric, acidic, fruity, a little cidery. Quite highly carbonated, but that’s not really a surprise as it’s supposed to be bottle conditioned. Very nice. One of the better strong pale beers I’ve had.

3.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: MAR 29, 2007 Frangó - Boa cerveja, porém enjoa devido ser muito doce, lembra mel. Encorpada, coloração alaranjada escura, muito bonita de se ver. Agradável aroma. Cerveja belga, garrafa tipo bujão, copo próprio. Forte.
Good beer, but too sweet, remember honey. Density, dark orange color, very nice to see. Nice aroma. Strong.

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Off white head. Solid lasting foam head. Color is hazy orange. Sweet yet refreshing. Not as sweet as some other Abbeys I’ve had. Flavor is yeast, alcohol, malt. Sour green apple ester flavor throughout. A hint of bitterness in the aftertaste mostly. Satisfying mouthfeel is textured and carbonated.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
A heavy amount of carbonation is present. An aroma of citrus and spice is present with elements of grain. A flavor of citrus, spice and a slight bread aspect to it. A light and airy finish.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
330ml bottle - pours a light golden/orange with a rather small white head on top, not nearly as foamy or big and rocky as other Tripels. The aroma is very sweet and sugary with banana, yeast, and some other citrus in the nose. Perhaps a little bit cloying, but not bad. Mouthfeel is a little on the thin side, and the carbonation maybe just slightly too heavy in the mouth, but again, not bad and still nice. Flavour is sharp and fruity, sweet and yeasty with a lot of citrus including banana, apple, and tropical fruit. Some mild hoppy bitterness in there as well, especially in the finish. Nice stuff. A good Abbey Tripel, and satisfying.
