Dark amber/orange body topped by a frothy bleached white head. GInger, malty sugars, and bread fill the nose. Malty bready flavours dominate, and are followed by some sweet grainy flavours. Buttery finish with lots of alcohol present. Slightly skunky, with an unpleasant aftertaste. Not my idea of a tripel, and is more reminiscant of a better flavoured malt liquor.

bottle. LCBO gift pack. clear bright orange body with a small short-lasting white head. aroma is weak for the style - there are faint apple and yeast notes as well as a distinctive sweet bread/cereal property. flavour starts out very sweet and sugary with some fruit spice and warm alcohol. I can’t say that I’m very fond of this one. The glass is a keeper though.

Dark amber, small frothy head, energetic carbonation. Pleasant aroma. Sweet malty flavor. Not too much of a stretch to imagine hard candy melting in the mouth. Smooth, with a faint hop bitterness in the finish.

Fruit, candied malt aromas, light copper, small toffee head, and pretty lace. Quite a malty flavour, with plums and blood oranges, some yeasty breads notes too. Medium bodied, good mouthfeel, sweet, satisfying, alcohol is most warming. Very nice.

Strong and spicy flavor. Amber colored body with a very small and not so long lastng head. Nice beer!

Bottled. A reddy brown coloured tripel with a decent ivory coloured head and some lacing. The aroma is a little fruity with some berry notes but none of the spiciness I would hope for. The taste is quite spicy and has good candy sugar notes. Quite a short finish.

A Mes rate: Did they really stop making their best beer in favour of this? Dark for a tripel. A bit of caramel and toffee. Plenty of sweetness. Bring back the cuvee

Copper golden colour with rich creamy head that leaves excellent lacing. Aroma is fruity, slightly yeasty. Rather complex caramel flavours matched by appropriate bitterness for the style. Long dry finish. Maybe too sweet and dark for the tripel fundamentalists, to me that is added complexity.

leaparsons (8975) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - JUL 19, 2005
Golden brown with a small off-white head. Aromas are sweet toffee and caramel malts with sugar, fruit and some whisky character. Flavours are sweet and malty with some fruitiness. Nice and hoppy on the finish.

deep gold, small head. mixed fruit aroma with orange and grainy malt. flavour holds more juicy fruit flavour and some backing malt. light in body, very little carbo. not a tripel.
