Amazing balance of smoothness, yeastiness, touch of sweetness, brightness, and a warm blast of hops. 9.2% Alc is prominently placed on the label, and that makes it all the more enjoyable (both the placing on the label, and in the bottle). As tripels go, this is zesty, brilliantly carbonated, warm and wonderful.

gEUS (1583) - Linden, BELGIUM - SEP 25, 2013
750 ml bottle at home - taken from notes (31/03/2011). No carbonation at all, but drinks dangerously well. Smooth and sweet for a triple but with veggie and floral notes.

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%.
