2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours bright gold with a fine mist of sediment and collapsing white head. The fruitiest aroma of the beers in my wooden carrefour Ch’ti selection crate. Suggestions of apple and pear, but it’s mostly grain. Mouth smooth and slightly whiskeyish, with chewy grain, cardboard, antiseptic smoky malt, pale biscuit and aspirin. Increasingly irritating in it’s whiskey-dipped paperiness. Watery, stale, alcoholic and not to this rater’s taste. Coors Light with a wee dram tipped in it.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Musty and yeasty aroma complete with apples and pears. Sparkling gold color. Very drinkable Trippel. I am fond of their beers so maybe that is just me. The alcohol is concealed in the at first yeast dominated flavor, that becomes fruity and somewhat dry afterwards.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
bottle. Golden colour, creamy head. Aroma and flavour reminds me of German Bockbier. Malty, sweet, slightly fruity and hoppy.

Hos tripple is also not to good. Had it on bottle. Just a very average beer. Not really worth while drinking

1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Pours a medium yellow hue with a thin, foamy, white head that disintegrates quickly. The aroma smacks of alcohol, stewed grains, oatmeal, honey and overripe peaches. The flavour is more of the same, though with decidedly less power. Very flimsy sweetness at first with a dull acidity, washing into a dirty, grainy and alcohol laden finish. Aftertaste is long and drying with an alum powder feel to it. Watery, medium body still manages to leave behind an unclean film in the mouth, not to be brushed away by the penetrating carbonation. Dirty and alcoholic, say no more. 33cl bottle, Leffe goblet, bbe 01/06/08.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pale yellow with a tiny white foam. Sweet and malty with some carbonation. Medium body with a short, sweet aftertaste.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Part of a bottle. Clear golden with a low head. Low key with not much in aroma or taste. Short after taste.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Clear golden colour. Low head. Chlorin aroma with glue and pretty sticky feel overall. Glue dominates the flavour, which is very one-dimensional. Pretty short taste with no depth. Sticky swimmingpool beer.

2.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pale yellow/gold with medium sized head. Not much carbonation. Sweet & floral aroma, lots of sugar and honey. Taste was dominated by the honey. Crude: way too sweet with nothing to counterbalance it. Light mouthfeel, very thin but a bit cloying from the sweetness.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Eeegh!! Forget all my sem-technical bluster. Three words: Lingering. Soapy. Aftertaste.
$4.99 for a 25’er of Triple, I’m thinking "gee, that’ll be money well-spent. Gee, that was money well-spent. Nice to see that it wasn’t just me or this bottle (it was slightly chilled, served up in a snobbish snifter or bulbous tulip or whatever the hell you call it); again, the RateBeer community comes through with flying colors! Flavor is a bit notable for at least being metallic. Appearance would be good on other beers, but hardly minimally adequate for a "Tripel".
