Nice looking beer. Very remarkable was the smell and taste of alcohol. A hoppy beer, a little fruity.

Mads Langtved (2244) - Copenhagen K, DENMARK - JUL 22, 2002
a very strong (too strong) beer. The beer can’t hide the alcohol. It reminds me of the Bornem Triple. It’s a bit too much the head is wonderful for the eyes.

JPDIPSO (4956) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 19, 2002
Dark golden color with faint earthy hop blanket aromas. Fruit and spice covered with sugar and strong Etoh. I noticed the alcohol and it was quite distracting.

MartinT (8236) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 6, 2002
UPDATED: JAN 11, 2005 Great-sized head atop a filtered (?) appearance...Harsh doughy yeast and alcohol topple the tangerine haze amidst minty earth…Bananas and lightly peppery cloves along the road…A whole range of citrus fruit…Many flavors come to mind, but I need spyglasses to perceive most of them…

caesar (5403) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - JUL 5, 2002
Nice aroma, smells like a good beer. Malty taste, and the appearance was clear brown yellow. Not much sugar in it, but a lot of alcohol, which is not dominant at all. I didn’t knew it had almost 10 % in it, cos i drank it from the tap. That’s always a good sign, when you cant notice the amount of alcohol.

duff (5484) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUN 1, 2002
Not too bad, and maintains great blance considering alc level and colour of the beer, appley, spicey flavours, not too bad, still quite strong though.

joet (2245) - Santa Rosa, California, USA - MAY 30, 2002
A straight up tripel with a lighter body. Orangey color, creamy thin foam, curacao and floral aromas. Very little pepper in the finish despite it’s massive 8.5% ABV. Amazingly drinkable, excellent with food and fairly dry. I want more complexity from a tripel generally, but this was right in there and more drinkable than a Cinq Cents. Beautiful!

austinpowers (2826) - New York, New York, USA - MAY 28, 2002
A huge bottle for $8. I was not expecting to get kicked in the ass by alcohol taste with each sip. A weird malty flavor dominates and makes this odd Belgian ale rather tough to drink.

omhper (20178) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - MAY 2, 2002
Sampled draught. Deep golden. Malty, balanced sweetness, bitter. Dangerously drinkable.
