3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Aroma is hops like an IPA beer and not much like an abbey tripel if you ask me. Has a dark orange body and okay head. Flavour is very hoppy with some malt, okay finish. It’s a decent blonde style, but far from a proper abbey tripel.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft. Pours a hazy golden body with a white head and good head retention. Fruity Belgian hop tones. Citrus sweet and chewy initially. Big etoh note that furthers the fruit character and the spiciness from the yeast tones. Bit of drying from the hops and additionally from a spiced addition, pepper like in nature. V good.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap at BT. I dont normally like many Tripels, but this one was pretty damn good. Pours a hazed bright golden with a nice white head- good lace. A roma is spicy phenolic belgian yeast- peppery, almsot clove, yet smooth and restrained- light doughy pils malts, cracker, some yeasty musty notes, medium fruitiness- some pear, slight lemon, some grass. Flavor is biscuit, doughy - real fresh crisp crackery pilsner/fresh pale malts, phenolic, yeasty, light spice, pepper, medium sweetness in the middle, and dries out nicely in the end. Very well made- restrained and enjoyable. mostly on the peppery side- but seemed fresh. Good stuff.

Enjoyed at the brewpub itself, November 2008. Poured a clear golden-copper colour with a nice head, good retention, but no carbonation. Had a Belgian yeast smell with different malts and cereal. Mild milky scent. The mouthfeel was creamy, but dry, and full-bodied. Flavours that were fruity, and of grain malts that are very well-blended. A very nice tripel for those who do not like it cloudy. Nicely brewed.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
BQ2010. Sampled on Draft at the Brewpub. Pours a nice hazy, golden body topped with a white, creamy head and good lacing. Aroma is pleasantly fruity, sweet malt, flowery, and herbal notes. Taste is relatively mild. It is mainly fruity (peach), and has some hints of alcohol. Good Tripel.

on tap at Dieu du Ciel. pours a hazy dark amber with a small but lasting white head. aroma is very yeasty, with lots of citrus. grapefruit in particular. taste is pleasantly sweet, with a wine like finish. the alcohol is very apparent, giving it an aged taste. low carbonation, and sticky on the palate. an excellent Tripel, and another DdC success.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Tried this beer while on Beer Quest 2010 with the guys. This was beer number 48. Nice hazy golden body topped with an average white creamy head that leaves a good lacing. Amazing malty aroma with pleasant fruity, sweet, flowery, and herbal notes. Taste is relatively mild. It is mainly fruity (peach) and sweet, and has some tiny hints of alcohol. More than decent bittersweet finish with superb warming effect. Very good Tripel.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Orange body with a short-lived off-white head. Aromas of fruity yeast, grapefruits and spices. Thick liquid that’s going fruitier as the glass get emptier...A typical tripel quoi.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at DDC. Pours an amber with thin head. Notes of malt and cereal with hints of ginger. The taste was moderately sweet with a light oily finish in the mouth. It was a nice triple but not out standing for me.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap at brewpub, 13 oz glass. Great tripel, with usual spice/yeast/dry-hop character. Pretty boozy tripel and eventual fruityness and sweetness are quite hidden by the alchool. This beer might benefit from cellaring, especially to thicken that texture and let the sweetness become more present. Still a much more than decent brew.
