sayravai (4708) - Helsinki, - JUL 12, 2008
(Bottled, 0.75l) Hazy golden with a small, lacy head. Sweetish, caramely-malty aroma with a hint of diacetyl. Sweet honey-malty flavor with medium bitterness and a bit too high acidity. Medium-bodied, sticky, low-carbonated. A sweetish and sugary brew, yet the acidity pretty much ruins it.

CaptainTilven (161) - Nancy, FRANCE - APR 15, 2016
Yellow brown, light amber body headed by a magnificent and lasting foam like beaten egg whites. Aroma of biscuit, spices, grass, fruit, flowers, honey; vegetal. Elegant, fruity, smoky; fine malt, alcohol quite present; hints of spices and fruit; a bit metallic; perfect balance between malt and hop. As a true Belgian one : balanced and refined, with character, and more than just a standard one. perfect length; heady AND fine.

ronaldtheriot (1784) - Laplace, Louisiana, USA - MAR 26, 2016
My bottle, I’m afraid was almost three years past the best-buy date. Arend Tripel had almost no head (just a cream-colored, very thin layer). No lacing to speak of. The aroma was of almost overripe fruit, fruit cake, tropical fruit, candy sugar, and possibly a hint of alcohol. Taste is of all that, with no bitterness or booze. Mouthfeel is medium, and this Arend Tripel finished semi-sweet and seemed quite aged. RJT

gallaghermurph (49) - Washington DC, USA - MAR 7, 2016
Pours a dark honey color with the cloudy characteristic of a belgian. Leaves a full what head that leaves more lacing than most. Immediate honey on the nose - if not honey than a sauternes-style sweetness. Taste is an instant sweetness that transitions to a bit of fresh water than to a light sourness and a slightly bitter finish. Notes of honey and dessert wine (again, sauternes) that then fades into a tart lemon/plum (if that makes any sense. I actually find the initial rich sweetness that fades into a light tartness highly appealing. Mouthfeel is slightly viscous, but not sticky with a soft carbonation. This surprised me to the upside in a lot of ways. Sure, its not as complex as others for its category, but I find it delicious.
