3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
750 ml. bottle pulled out of the cellar to share. Poured to snifters showing a cloudy, brownish amber hue, with a creamy layer of off white head foam, and light, wispy lacing. The nose initially presented some lively fruitiness with tropical, and guava-like hints, malt smoothness, and spice. Medium bodied, with moderate to low effervescence, age was more noticeable in the flavor as the fruit seemed just ripened, sweet, and supported by a now mellowed alcohol presence. Still tasty, fruity, and mildly boozy.

Has a mild aroma of bread. Pours a very cloudy dark golden colour, with off-white head. Light sweet taste. Medium body with creamy texture and average carbonation.
A good mild Tripel.

Bottle, shared with BBGTC feat. Yngwie and Meilby. Clear light amber body, small white head. Nose is marzipan, white sugar, honey, hints of straw. Taste is white sugars, Belgian yeasty esters, straw, honey and hints of oxidized port and caramel tones. Medium body and carbonation. Fair enough, but no winner.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
This is impressive, quite a sight for the eyes and a treat for the mind and body. Here in the US it is sold as Goliath Tripel. Pours golden amber with a phat 2 finger white head that lasts all the way to the end, and leaves amazing lacing. Aroma of dough, barnyard funk, sweet malt, and lemon zest. Flavor is a perfect balance of sweet, sour, and bitter, it is heaven in a glass. Full bodied, smooth texture, medium carbonation, and balanced, long finish. A great beer.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Blonde dorée avec un beau col de mousse persitente et cremeuse, laissant une bonne grosse dentelle sur le verre. Nez très levuré : pain frais, abricot, un peu fleuri également. En bouche, l’attaque est sur l’amertume et l’alcool, assez brutale. Puis la levure se fait bien ressentir, pour finir sur des notes légèrement fruitées. Corps assez important, alcool omni-présent. Une triple belge typique.
