Hazy yellow honey hue, with an off-white head, leaving lacing, sweet fruity pale malt nose, with a vanilla spiciness, candied apricots, yeasty note in the aroma follows through on a medium-bodied palate with a smooth yeasty sweet pale malt and faintly corny character, with an alcoholic punch, candied fruity accent, hint of spicy notes, leading towards a warming lingering faint bitter finish.

4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Obviously beer is alive, and every bottle or cask will be slightly different. We had this one on tap at Monk’s in Philadelphia and it was bone dry, with a dry woody cedar taste and great spice, more pepper than coriander, and even a hint of mint on the back of the throat. Long bitter finish and wonderful balance. Beautiful cloudy golden body with a small white head that vanishes, leaving wonderful rings of lacing up and down the side of the glass.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pour is a sparkaling yellow with a white fluffly head. Aroma is average. Some corriander with a yeasty vanilla. Flavor is a bit weak for a tripel. There are some yeast and pepper in there but nothing that knocks you off your chair like some other belgians. Slight alcohol burn as it goes down. Overall this is fairly average with nothing to put it over the top.

On tap at Monk’s as "Geant Goliath Triple". Coriander sweety aroma, on golden orange body with soft white head. Another ho hum typical strong triple with a bit much coriander and sugar and lacking any substantial complexity or verve. Passable.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
750 ml bottle. Pours to a hazy, golden color, with a thick, creamy, white head, and a lively carbonation. The nose on this beer is very inviting with lots of good pale malt aroma, aroma of candy sugar, and spicy yeast aroma. The palate is firm with good pale malt and candy sugar flavors. This beer finishes with more good pale malt flavors up front, the ends with a very pleasing earthy yeast flavor and light hints of cracked pepper. Very tasty Abbey Triple. I enjoyed this one.

3.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Decent. Yellow-ish look. Fruity-ish taste. Almost didn’t buy because of the cheesy name and picture on the bottle. Not my favorite Belgium, but decent overall.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
750ml bottle. Sweet, floral aroma, honeyish and full of yeast esters, featuring notes of lemon frosting, pear, melon, bubblegum and anise, with a mild, spicy alcoholic presence. Light-medium golden amber color, mostly clear, with a massively rocky, foamy and lasting head. Flavor is strongly sweet to start, seeing an influx of mild herbs, spice and a slight medicinal tinge before the lightly peppery, mildly bitter, long and warming finish. Palate is highly effervescent, frothy and buoyant, body is on the full side. Has some nice attributes but lacks a certain degree of complexity.
