UPDATED: FEB 18, 2013 2/II/13 - 33cl bottle @ home - BB:VI/2017 (2013-129) Thanks to Martinus for sharing the beer!
Little cloudy amber to beige beer, very big aery off-white head, unstable, bit adhesive. Aroma: apples, very fruity, sugary, almonds, marzipan, pretty sweet, bubble gum. MF: ok carbon, medium to full body. Taste: yeasty, nice bitter hops, fruity, nutty, pretty spicy, some citrus. Aftertaste: bitter, apples and other fruits, citrus, pretty hoppy ending. Very decent tripel!

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle, traded with Bierkoning. Oh my, lots of mandarines in here! And herbs, white wine and peppery phenols. Very light peaty on top of that. Quite full for a tripel, sweetish but the sweetness is washed away by a rather powerful bitterness. A spicy and citrusy tripel. Certainly one of the best out there.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Slightly hazy amber colour, white head. Aroma of apple, green apple, quite sweet, fruit, bubblegum and honey. Quite bitter hoppy flavour, sweet malts. Bitter finish, caramel, light sweet notes, bubblegum and fruits.
Nice brew! /And on an entirely unrelated note: during this rating, on the first day of the Brugs Beer Festival -we went there later-, my pen broke down. The exact one I got last year at the hotel I stayed in at Brugge, for -indeed- the previous BAB festival. Almost as if the pen knows..
(From 33cL bottle, shared @ The Plow Street Residence. From trade with Bierkoning. Thanks!!)

0,33 l bottle bought directly ath the brewery. Pours yellow golden in the glass. Nearly no head. Citrus and fresh hop on the nose. Starts with citrus sweetness, noticeable but nice hopy. Little bit koreander, honey and almonds. Light oily, mid alcoholic, low bitterness and easy to drink. Like it!

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
[330ml bottle courtesy of dantheman278] Big gusher, pours like an ice-cream sundae. Hazy golden, enormous head. Lemon citrus nose, slightly herbal. Same on the flavour – all agreed this was more like a saison than a tripel. Almost a hot, peppery finish, which follows on really well from the herbal characters. Very nice. Assuming the name of the beer is what you say to your best mate after a few of these
