3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
This is a nice tripel and much better than most. Tasted on draught, Arendsnest, Amsterdam. Sweet aroma of passion fruit and spices including coriander. Flavor surprisingly has some sourness, as well as lemon and more fruit. The alcohol is very well hidden, and the palate is quite good.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: SEP 2, 2007 Bottle from de bierkoning, Amsterdam. Wheat in colour with thin white head. Dry nose of orange, yeast and hops. Tastes salty with notes of orange, cinnamon, honey. Dry raisin finish with a light bitter edge. Full bodied. Syrupy character. Really very tastey and a great starter at 9.2 abv (as this bottle is labelled). A nice standard tripel.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
(Bottled, 9.2% ABV) Hazy reddish-amber color with a smallish, white and lacy head. Very orange-fruity, slightly gingery-spicy, dryish aroma with some alcohol. Very slightly sweet, strongly orange-fruity flavor with some acidity and hints of cardboard. Hides the high ABV pretty well, but it does show up in the long, fruity aftertaste. I didn’t find the hops very evident. Medium-bodied, neutral, quite refreshing palate with slightly foamy carbonation. A quite nice tripel, but I found the (less alcoholic) Dubbel more enjoyable.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
(75cl bottle, with many thanks to bierkoning) Hazy orange colour with a moderate foamy, minimal off-white head. Honeyish malty, yeasty and fruity (lemon zest) aroma with a touch of coriander spice. Sweet and spicy flavour, full to medium body with a smooth carbonation. Malt-accented, yeasty-fruity taste with an almost lingering spicy, delicate bitter finish, slightly hoppy with a warming alcoholic note. Pleasant and well-rounded brew.
