UPDATED: JAN 8, 2006 (Bottle 33 cl) Beautiful, huge and stable head. Hazy with lots of yeast in the aroma. Sweetish but never cloying. Very complex strong ale. Reminds me of spring in Antwerpen with all the bourgeois ladies sipping this at the cafés... 220493

Pale yellow, hazy and lively. Big yeasty, fruity aroma. Complex, spicy, funky and immensly complex. Also dangerously drinkable (Damn! Is that bottle already empty?) A world classic that has many followers.

Warning! Early amateur rating! Well carbonated. Flavoursome but not that fruity compared to a Tripel Karmeliet. Nice though!

Cloudy pale blond color, with the usual giant head, sign of strong carbonation. The spicy aroma is mild but balanced. The high carbonation is pleasant in this hot summer night; the malt flavor is very spicy, with hints of lemon; the alcohol provides a nice warmth; shades of liquorice.
One of the most elegant beers ever.
Sweet, spicy, hoppy aroma. Full body, dry in the beginning, sweeter at the end; a lot spicy, very complex. It’s often used as best example when comparing other beers.
