3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Appearance: hazy butterscotch with a thick white head shrinking to a fat cap. Aroma: honey, booze, peaches, orange zest, white pepper, and a hint of musty basement. Taste: champagne, vanilla, orange, apricots, honey. Finish: boozy, with lingering sweet, orchardy fruits. Notes: BIG beer, with a thick, chewy, boozy, sweet, fruity action. I like my tripels with a little more lightness in the palate and a little bit drier of a finish, but this was still darn good. Bottle from the Rare Beer Club.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
750ml bottle. In the cellar for 2.5 - 3 years. Pours amber with some SERIOUS sediment (even after the first pour) and an off-white head. On the nose sultana raisins, candy like notes, light honeydew melon, faint Belgian yeast, and light tangy apple. Taste wise, I think the cellar is responsible for the raisiny notes, with some alcohol, green apple, dried fruit into mineral bitterness, a light woody note, bready notes, and some alcohol in the finish. If I tasted this blindfolded, I would never guess tripel, as it has quite a few quad-like tastes going on. Maybe the age has added a new dimension to this, but I sure do enjoy it a lot more than the reviews say I should.
