Bottled. Hazy golden. Yeasty, vineous aroma and flavour with notes of mustard. Slight citrusy. Fresh, lively and fizzy.

Probiere (992) - Iowa, USA - JAN 1, 2004
Raisins and dough in the nose, yeasty, bit of pepper with a sweet, dryish finish. A bit of a sour tang midway through.

Jeppe (2631) - Řlbutikken, DENMARK - DEC 8, 2003
I can't believe this beer has a 3.28 average, it is one of my worst beer experiences ever! It has a nice pale white head and a strange yellow body with a lot of yeast leftovers. The smell is terrible, (rotten) apples and a LOT of alcohol. The taste is just as bad, very sweet and alcoholic and, in my opinion, really nothing more. I took two sips and poured the rest out.

Ungstrup (29223) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - NOV 10, 2003
The aroma is very sweet with notes of spices, lemon, oranges, and yeast. The color is a hazy orange and it has a beutiful huge though collapsing white head. The flavor is dominated by sweetness combined with a mixture of spices, I think corriander is one, a quite nice combination of sweetness and spicyness. In the middle the alcohol runs prickling over the tongue. In the end the spicyness turns woody dry with a slight hoppyness to it. The mouthfeel is a little thin in the beginning, but when the alcohol kicks in it is great. A quite nice beer - one of the better Triples on my tastebuds.

fiulijn (14380) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 16, 2003
Blond color; incredibly giant and creamy head. Malty and spicy aroma, dry (the classic coriander). Good body structure, not too much sweet not bitter; a light sour note and wood touch, peculiar in a Triple..

skortila (4482) - Baarn, NETHERLANDS - SEP 21, 2003
Aroma is spicy, some fruits (apple/cider), sourness. Yellow coloured, large frothy head. Taste is fruity, sweet, perhaps a bit sharp and metallic. Palate is I don't know... not good.

caesar (5055) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - SEP 1, 2003
Slightly hazy golden color, large lasting head, frothy, rocky. Spicy and fruity aroma. Bit sweet, apple. Bit yeasty taste, also spicy and sweet. Dry quite alcoholic palate. Almost a bit like white wine.

jerohen (1992) - Bussum, NETHERLANDS - SEP 1, 2003
Cloudy golden coloured, big lasting head. Pretty alcoholic and a bit dry. Not as good as the regular Augustijn imho.

Hansen (6569) - Assentoft, DENMARK - JUL 27, 2003
Fine aroma with some flower notes. Disapointing appearance, low head. To much alcohol in the flavor. Sweet malt too.

Spiesy (2338) - Sydney, Greater London, AUSTRALIA - JUN 16, 2003
Bottled. Pure, golden clear body, with a rich large fluffy white head. Very good looking beer this. Lovely beer, that perhaps has been under rated thus far. I really enjoyed this beer. It just lacked the finish a classy palate that would put it up with Duvel and others.
