Wow! Rich aroma of everything you want and expect from a Belgian strong blonde/tripel. Rich, complex fruitiness balanced by a body worth dying for. Gimme more!

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Mostly clear amber body, with some sandy particles roaming around, and some champagne fizz bubbling up from the botttom. Large frothy white head.
Semi-sharp belgian yeasty fruit aroma, some sweet caramel backing.
Way too fizzy of a body to start. Dry yeasty body. Sweet flowers and pear. Sweet leafy weedy hops. Some green sweet plant stems after a while.
A bit warming with alcohol, even the first sip. Maybe that was the heavy carbonation. Sorry, Just don’t like stuff that immediately fizzes in my mouth once it goes past my lips.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
sweet rich and very drinkable. a beer that doesnt leave a bad impression, thats for sure. pours yellow with a thick white head that will not go away despite having the glass sit on the counter for 10 minutes or so. taste is sweet, somewhat malty and rich. very good tripel - not the most drinkable, but certainly worh the try. these guys dont make bad brews that i know of, so why not get one today?

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
I like it! Super bubbly, citrus/spice complex flavor that has a comfortable lingering bitterness in the aftertaste. It’s missing a little something for me though.... taste didn’t develop enough throughout the bottle.

2.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
As befitting the label, this is one of the world’s scariest beers. The overriding flavor was that of dissolved tobacco smoke, which permeated the whole experience. To be sure, the beer was inadequately refrigerated, but this was definitely a once-in-a-lifetime experience.

Orange almost solid beer with a huge, lasting head. Lots of fruits (orange and pear) in the aroma. Spicy taste, quite spiritous with good balance. Sweet, quite long aftertaste. Very nice triple.

Bottle. Nose-doughy, yeasty, alcohol. Deep yellow body with nice lasting lacing. Taste-reminds me of a souped up saison-very spicy, earthy, and doughy. Sticky sweet finish.
