4.9 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
UPDATED: APR 13, 2008 Bottle. TOP 3 ! for me. It only gets better.Like some have said, fruity and floral. One of the best beers that I’ve ever enjoyed. A great Summer brew. The fruity notes combined with the hops makes it very well balanced.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Beautiful golden pour with just the slightest haze, and a big rocky white head that settles the a thin white layer, a truly beautiful beer. Hop aromas of pine and spice with some floral notes, followed by a bit of yeasty bread. Smooth and luscious with a medium body. A little light toffee sweetness, but the flavor is certainly dominated by the hops, but it’s not overly bitter. Finish is dry and mildly astringent. Alcohol is noticeable, but not overwhelming, in the aroma and finish. I really liked this.

Pours gold with a thick white head. Aroma of apples, raisins, bananas and bread. Taste is a bit malty with alcohol surprisingly hidden. Slightly bitter aftertaste. A bit too carbonated.

Probably my favourite triple. I like the banana, vanilla and bread tones. This is what good Belgian beer is all about. It’s extremely far removed from the amateurish abbey ales that give Belgian beer a bad name these days. Chimay White is 8%, but you’d never guess that. Also, it’snot sweet at all, there’s just those lovely malty flavours.

Got to taste this treat on tap at Firewater’s in Atlantic City. Poured a rich, thick golden haze with a fluffy white head. Aromas of apple and spice. Taste is first slightly sweet, then the spice hits. There is a pleasantly warming alcoholic aftertaste. Quite enjoyable, but the kick will catch up to you after more than two.

Amber color, huge white head. Tiny particles floating in the glass. Fruity, spicy aroma (vanilla), slightly hoppy with hints of cereal, smoothly alcoholic with notes of wood and liquor. Slightly bitter end. Light to medium body, siroupy texture.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Ominous frothy white head, hazy dark golden color. Aroma of lemon and orange zest, spices (coriander, nutmeg), and some hops. Very full and complex flavors of yeast, wheat, spices, and citrus fruits. Alcohol is present, but not overpowering. A slightly hoppy finish and ample carbonation make this brew crisp and dry on the finish. An awesome Tripel.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottled. Beer is clear light caramel with a huge, beige, frothy, diminishing, mostly lasting head. Clingy skirt of lace on the sides of the snifter. First impression: Wow! This is a lot better than Blue and Red. The aroma is realtively simple, but appealing. It’s malty with light notes of toasted grain; Hoppy with a moderate notes of flower, lemon zest; Yeasty with a light note of dough, trace of cellar; Miscellaneous notes of moderate orange zest, coriander, traces of white pepper. The flavor is lightly sweet, lightly-to-moderately bitter/dry, lightly acidic with a long, warm, lightly acidc, lightly bittersweet finish. The body is medium, the texture is velvety and the carbonation is lively.
