4.7 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
75 cL bottle. Pours hazy orange with a slowly collapsing yet quite stable head. Off-white. Aroma is fantastic, smooth and mellow yeasty, mild spiced and caramel malt in a classic and almost supurb mix. In addition the aroma hops of amarillo, tomahawk and saaz join in giving a great twist to this. Flavour is dense spiced mixed with a nice mellow mix of yeast and caramel malt. Again the oily hops work quite well with this mix providing even more strength to the classic triple flavour. This is so smooth and so flavourful a triple - fantastic. Only downside - a vague bit too strong flavoured perhaps.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
A golden beer with sediment floating around under a whipped cream like head. The aroma is sweet with lots of spices and malt notes. The flavor is sweet malty with notes of citrus and spices, the notes of spices grows in intensity towards the end, which is quite dry. An OK Belgian ale, but I had expected much more hops in it.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
(Bottle 75 cl) Pours a cloudy golden with a tall, white head leaving laces. Aroma of yeast and very refined, lightly perfumy hops. Medium body with flavours of yeast and quite some maltiness. And then a solid dose of hops in the finish. Must be one of the most bitter Belgians. 011206

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: AUG 28, 2006 [Bottled at Akkurat, Stockholm] Hazy pale golden, very rich and firm head. Powerful flowery hops combines with estery raspberry candy in the aroma. Sweet with soft, light, sparkling mouthfeel. Rich on hops with intriguing yeasty character. The alcohol is noticable and lifts the beer even further. Candyish finish with good bitterness. A complex beer with an unusual cross of rich hoppiness and superb malt character.

4th January 2011
Hazy gold beer, frothy white head. Dry softish palate. Sweetish malt - typically tripel. Well balanced by mildly bitter orange hops. Creamy malt. Carbonated bite to finish. Such an obvious style to me, well hopped tripel, don’t understand why there are not more of them.

UPDATED: AUG 14, 2010 2010-08-13, draught at Mikkeller Bar, Copenhagen, 7-4-7-3-14=35
Cloudy blond color, almost no head. The aroma is light, with malt, vegetables, light spices; un-exciting. Average body strength; spicy malt flavor; strong bitterness; no emotions.
The only thing I’m really enjoying at the moment is Neil Young’s Harvest playing...

Hazy blond color; high carbonation and consequent huge head. At first there is aroma of paper; then some hop and spices, more Triple than IPA. Dry malt flavor, spicy. Maybe the bottle is not fresh; it’s a good Tripel, but nothing like I had the first time.
2007-10-29, 75cl bottle, 8-5-9-5-17=44
Hazy golden color; rocky head. Very nice aroma, hoppy and spicy, Belgian hopping, flowery. Good body structure, malty, dry, very bitter; there is yeast, spices and some honey too; the flavors are very well mixed. Excellent.
