Though I was biased when I drank this because I was REALLY in the mood for a Belgian beer, but the flavors meld very nicely and the yeast is very well chosen.

Hey, not to knock all of the traditional raters, but for half the price, this Tripel is about as good as some of the standards out there.

Dark, cloudy orange-yellow. Finger of fizzy head which evaporates quickly. The glass sweats. A hint of orange peel, along with a spicy Belgian aroma. The balance in the smell is really good. The spice is harsh but not too bad due to the balance. Strong, fizzy Belgian flavor with hints of citrus (grapefruit and orange). Really well balanced. The feel is fizzy and thick, like champagne. It’s a strong but flavorful and balanced beer. THe grapefruit and orange citrus are the Belgian’s perfect foil.

This beer had a huge aroma to it dominated by fruit. Nice golden/orange colour and tasted great. Wouldn’t recommend it as a session beer, can taste the alcohol and finishes warm and bitter.

Leighton (10512) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 15, 2009
Delicious. Had it on tap at Rattle and Hum in NYC. Poured a rich, slightly cloudy gold. Aromas of cloves, flowers and spices. Very sweet and smooth.

mkel07 (3093) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - APR 2, 2010
207ml bottle. Bright golden orange sunset colour with a willowy scattering of unorganised bubbles that fight to make it to the edge of the glass. Spices and dried raisins and plums with a light touch of citrus. High alcohol content can be immediately felt from the first mouthful. Lines the mouth with a warm coating.

Well, I bought this with the canis major multipack, and I really didn’t know what a tripel was. It kind of reminds me of the in heat wheat, but just kicked up a bit. Lots of sweetness in the taste, with subtle banana notes on the finish. I’m not sure I would buy a sixer of it, but I would drink it again.
