4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours cloudy golden with long lasting head and watery tracing. Smells like cream, floral hops. Taste has alcohol, fairly good low level of carbonation that compliments the tastes and some more hops. As good as any tripel, really. Found a bottle of this at the LCBO in Niagara.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Verse un liquide couleur paille et un col généreux. Au nez, montent des effluves de malt, de houblons, d’alcool et de fruits fermentés, bananes, agrumes. En bouche, le fruit sucré se fait sentir. Principalement la banane mais aussi la prune. Le tout se termine sur une belle note d’amertume. Très recommandable.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
500ml bottle. Lovely intense yellow body with a huge white fluffy head, lots of carbonation. Nose is yeasty, sweet and fresh, hops, orange peel, dried apricot, herbal...delicious and not even a hint of alcohol. Taste is yeasty upfront, sweet and round, incredible fresh for a tripel, wild flowers and herbs, little spiciness, banana. Absolutely wonderful.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Hazy gold with big, flotsam, white head / Funky, musty, skunky nose of honey and cooked fruit / Medium body, zesty carbonation, malty, moderately sweet and somewhat sticky, with good hop balance and finish / Flavors of fruit cake, honey, straw, orange marmalade, and resin / A heavy, dark, triple, with the alcohol well masked, and enjoyable, but would prefer a brighter flavor profile.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
50 cl. Hazy amber-golden with an inch of foamy meringue on top. Aroma of bready yeast, toast, light honey, citrus and resin. Flavor is a very nice blend of the same with more upfront resin, citrus and honey. Light medium body is to the dry-hoppy side, with medium carbonation, and has just the right presence of 9% abv.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: MAR 2, 2012 Bottle. Light to moderate grain and straw for the malt, herbs and lemongrass for the hops, barnyard smell for the yeast, with white wine and white grape in the background. Head is large, fizzy/frothy white with good lacing and is mostly diminishing. Color is sparkling clear light yellow amber. Flavor starts moderately sweet and lightly acidic, then finishes lightly sweet and acidic and moderately bitter. Palate is medium bodied and oily in texture which are both hidden by the fizzy carbonation, and finishes lightly astringent and quite dry. A very nice, if just a bit too effervescent, Abbey Tripel. The flavor has good range and excellent balance.

Bottle from Sam’s Quik Shop in Durham. Glad we finally started getting these beers. Hazy orange-tinted golden with a large fluffy white head. Nose of peaches and apricot, curaçao, coriander, and pepper. Pepper also shows itself at the end of the taste, contributing to a nicely dry finish.

500ml bottle. Cloudy orange pour, frothy white head. Aroma is yeasty, spicy black pepper, coriander and orange. Soft bready mouthfeel. Fairly good balance of sweet caramel malt and yeast.
