COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
It has a very big head indeed - pour it gently - and a very clean palate, beginning with a dry, lightly citric fruitiness, and finishing with a distinctive and delicate, perfumy, hop character. Very light and fluffy in texture, giving little hint of its strength.

DarkElf (3038) - La Jolla, California, USA - APR 5, 2004
Lightly sweet and moderately spicy, but is generally only mildly flavorful; Faint orange-citrus flavor lurks in the background, and there is also a slight amount of coriander present as well; The beer lacks complexity, with the beer being fairly one-dimensional and staying consistent in flavor from start to finish; Fairly carbonated mouthfeel and medium bodied for a tripel; The aroma is faintly spicy, but pretty light in general; Pale golden in color is similar to a pilsener, but is moderately hazy; The white head is easily an inch tall with fairly good retention that is aided by the steady flow of carbonation bubbles; Very little lacing

ante (3374) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - APR 5, 2004
UPDATED: FEB 6, 2008 Hazy pale golden with a large foamy thick white head. Fresh sparkling aroma of flowers, lemon, oranges, sugar and yeast. Soft and creamy lemony flavour with notes of yeast and pear. Dry finish with a soft fruity background. Very drinkable...well-balanced. Similar to Unibroue Don De Dieu.

erway (1004) - Albuquerque, New Mexico, USA - APR 4, 2004
Pours a lite gold with a flowery aroma of spices and candi sugar. A beautiful frothy head sits atop. A great tripel with nice sourish notes and a wonderful crisp finish. A little heavy of a body for the style.

jercraigs (8485) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 22, 2004
UPDATED: DEC 1, 2004 Re-Rate Small bottle LCBO Release. Hazy pastel golden yellow body, massive fluffy white head. Sweet malty aroma with some spice and yeasty pepper notes. Flavour starts out with a touch of yeas and some spicey notes. Surprisingly dry finish, touch of hoppy bitterness. Nice palate. Doesn’t live up to my memory of it last time. Perhaps being in the corked bottle, or being cellared a bit made a difference? 7/4/7/4/16Original Rating 750 mL Bottle of unknown vintage, I believe Doug said it was cellared for a bit. Bubbly white head gives forth the standard yeasty alcoholic tripel aroma in fine fashion. Slightly sweet notes throughout with subtle notes of citrus and yeast making fleeting appearances. I enjoyed this one. 8/3/8/3/16

elnadeau (786) - Laguna Niguel, California, USA - MAR 16, 2004
Great big white foamy head causes multiple pours to get enough of the golden yellow liquid in the glass. Aroma of citrus spice and yeast. Flavor contains pear/apple and citrus with light spices. Light bodied and nicely balanced, this is a decent and complex enough Tripel to have again, but there are others just as good or better that are not as expensive.
