The aroma is sweet with light notes of vanilla. It pours dirty blonde with a decent white head. The flavor is sweet and syrupy with the flavors of the Belgian yeast mostly. The booze is lost a bit with three years making it really smooth. Not really spicy at all though, probably lost over the three years.

Bottle. Pours bright orange, very clear, lots of bubbles. Nose is yeast, bread and oranges. Not particularly pungent. Taste is yeasty, orange, alcoholic, but lacking a bit of body and a bit of ommph in terms of flavour.

2008: Yeasty walnut with peach overtones. Cloudy orange, headless, full of floaties. Dough, yeast, and tart overripe oranges. Assumes a babyfood peach and apricot quality toward the end. The beer has potential, but something went awry in the execution. Then again, 3 years of age ma not be ideal for this one. I like the interpretation of the style, but it probably needs to be drunk fresher.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Hazy medium orange body with a thin white head. The aroma is a bit unusual for the style in a way that is hard to describe: fruity, hints of berries, brown sugar, boozey notes reminiscent of rum. Very low on carbonation with a light, slightly viscous body. Has a bread, grain, and caramel flavor up front, burnt sugar, some citrus. Not near as fruit as it smelled, but with very strong sugary flavors. Doesn’t really feel like a tripel.

Hazy golden color with a small pretty fast diminishing head. Smell light malts, light sweetness. Nice taste, full body, good carbonation.

Triple with amazing color, which is a good interpretation of a triple, although it too sweet.

Hefiger, leicht süßlich-weinartiger Geruch. Antrunk sü0ßlich und trocken-hefig. Kräuterige Mitte mit würzigen Noten. Nelkig-zimtig und betont bitter im Abschluß.

Had this once a few years back, pretty sure this still is not sold in Washington state. Big orange zesty kind of nose. Smells like an imperial wit of some sort. Same kind of citrus notes in the flavors blended with some bread and Belgiany sugar notes not blended together all that well. Just doesn’t really taste like a Triple...

Bottle. Faint aromatic caramel cereals hay. Hazy light Golden. Medium head and body. Slight sweetness and short nonbitter finish. Searching for the yeast flavours!

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Unique and welcomed take on the style aromatically with bubble gum and strawberry notes peering above the classically dry attic nose. Hazy sunset, fleeting white head. Sweet honey body, ample weight, darker more robust middle, approaches a balance in the finish, though remains malt driven accented with some herbal notes from the yeast.
