Thanks to bu11zeye for sharing this bottle. The beer pours a light orange color with a white head. The aroma has some brown sugar notes as well as some alcohol and orange citrus. The flavor is similar. I get some alcohol and orange notes, as well as some cherries and a light bit of ash and biscuit malt. Fruity tasting overall. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

(750ml bottle) clear deep gold, wispy white bubbles. nose of spicy belgian yeast, bit of candi sugar, tiny bit funky, cream. Taste is even better, candi sugar, golden raisins, spicy belgian yeast, hard to identify herbal flavor but this is quite good.

Hazy amber beer, short lived tiny white head. Smooth soft palate, a little syrupy and semi dry. That sweet tripel flavour is here but not as sweet as many tripels. Traces of orange and dried fruits. Creamy finish. Nice tripel. Thanks to Mes for this one.

thepeter (326) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 31, 2012
A - A deep slightly hazy orange that glows in the light. A small head that leaves great lacing and lasts the entire drink. S - Orange, citrus zest, yeast, spices, coriander and a little pineapple as it warms. T - lots of Orange, yeast, pepper, coriander, caramel and some other fruitiness in there as well, bit of hop bitterness at the end and finishes with a slight alcohol warmth. M - Very nice, medium bodied, smooth creamy perfect carbonation. D - Very drinkable, the alcohol is only slightly warming even though it’s over 9%.

Corked 750ml bottle from Mi-Orge Mi-Houblon, Arlon, Belgium!
The beer is dark amber colored, with high, long-lasting white head. Looks gorgeous! It smells hoppy, and very yeasty-malty-fruity and spicy. Starts with massive yeasty, fruity flavors (peach, berries), it has a sweet malt body, slightly alcoholic. The middle part shows slightly alcoholic, very fruity, with sweet malts in background. Goes into a yeasty-sweet, fruity finish and malty finish!

It was a light orange/brown color and slightly hazy, though not as hazy as the Amerikaans. My first thought was that it smelled like a hefe. It has the same great body as the Americaans though it was not as fizzy. It tasted rich and malty like wet bread smells on a hot day, and it had a slight bitter finish.
