2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
I know itís gotten good reviews, but I just didnít enjoy it. The color was good, but the head was tremendous. I assumed it was a bad poor, bit Iíve heard of others having trouble. Alas, a minor issue. Good color, aroma, and flavor, however at $5 a bottle (in Franklin, Tn), there are much better beers.

seems a bit like chimay light.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Aroma is somewhat unspectacular, yet is pleasing. Color and presence of the beer is beautifully golden brown. Taste is spicy, with coriander, almost like a white pepper element. Somehow I think I tasted orange peel. Body was medium in weight and the finish was short, yet delicious. Excellent and exemplary of the style.

UPDATED: MAY 13, 2009 The top fermentation seems to give this beer a bit of oft centeredness and there is some grassiness in place but it is enjoyable. I sense a raison gum drop with spices with a golden crisp overtone to it. This is one you can sip and enjoy. It doesnít hit the high notes and isnít as aggressive as its Chimay brothers and sisters hit but it interests me nonetheless. Bottle at the Banshee @ Scranton, PA.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Had this on tap at Taco Mac. Little to no head and no lacing. Appearance was very cloudy. Might be because it was served waaaaay too cold. Very strong aroma of yeast and fruit. Couldnít really smell pure hops, but plenty of fruit. Nice long finish, but could taste more of the alcohol than I wouldíve liked. Not a great representative of the tripel style, still good.

A delightful beer... hauled home from Belgium by my girlfirend but itís available here in Ireland too. The aroma is simply amazing. The pungent global brands should be ashamed of themselves. The head is picture perfect and the taste was delightful.
