Bottle. Brown beer with a gentle whispy head. The aroma is very vinous and the flavour is slightly spiced, with fruit peel and aniseed, and quite dry. Overall a nice beer.

Bottle from gift pack purchased at LCBO. Nice copper-amber colour with a small head. Aroma is interesting - quite sweet and malty, but with that slightly medicinal/band-aid note that I get off of some Belgians. Flavour is nice - rye bread, amaretto, caramel. Some alcohol warmth around the edges that comes through with a bit of a bite in the finish. Another fairly simple but well-made & enjoyable beer from these guys.

Bottle (330ml). Poured clear amber with a smallish creamy white head. Aroma is almost sour sugary malt, there’s an odd note to it, almost chemical; certainly jangling and unbalanced. Taste is alcohol, sharply sugary malt, a bit of grain - not really a lot, actually - thin yet syrupy mouthfeel. So far only the regular De Koninck does anything for me.

MrManning (2009) - Hamilton, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 12, 2005
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.

mds (2250) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 11, 2005
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.

caledonian (367) - Surrey, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 7, 2005
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.

DougShoemaker (3147) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 1, 2005
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.
