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 (2210) - 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 (19809) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - MAY 2, 2002
Sampled draught. Deep golden. Malty, balanced sweetness, bitter. Dangerously drinkable.

OlJuntan64 (1265) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - APR 26, 2002
Clear orange gold colour with pale yellow medium lasting head. Delicate fruity hoppy aroma with some light spice. Palate is an uncomplicated, bitter- slight sweet, but there not a lot there to really set the mouth nerve endings going. Medium bodied and weakish bitter dry finish. I didn’t sense the alcohol as much as other rates seemed to. Overall a basic Belgian ale.

airen99 (20) - Bellevue, Washington, USA - MAR 1, 2002
Liquid mud, but oh... so good. One of the best trippel style beers I ever had. Great nose, better palate. And the 8.5% alcohol is just in the perfect range.

pilsnerrogge (2525) - Finspång, SWEDEN - JAN 28, 2002
Overhelming taste of alcohol, too much for my liking.

   AROMA 6/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 6/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 11/20
Ernest (6319) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - DEC 21, 2001
Aroma is very dryly citric (grapefruit and lemon), lots of alcohol, a bit dusty/chalky, musky/perfumey, plenty of yeast, some bready malt, bubble gum and banana. Mostly diminishing moderate head over a medium yellow liquid with a few visible yeast particles. A bit more than medium body, very sweet, aggressive alcohol, fairly dry, slightly acidic, dry/sweet finish. Alcohol overpowers the flavors: grapefruit and lemon, caramel, yeast, bread, and straw/grain/hay. The alcohol is too heavy for the light flavors (the label on my bottle says 8.5%, but it seems higher), which makes it seem duller than it probably would be otherwise.

Rutzicka (102) - SWITZERLAND - OCT 23, 2001
It has a golden-brown colour with a creamy head. Strange aroma of ammoniac and sulphur, cherry. Interesting acidity in the finish.
