4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Poured a cloudy yellow with a huuuge white, rocky yet smooth head. All the triple aromas are there (coriander, citrus). Alcohol on your throat going down. Comfort beer.

4.5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 20/20
Had high expectations for this one. Golden pour like most Belgian ales. Aroma was fruity. I detected some strawberry and my buddy detected slight hints of green apple. Quite a bit of head but quickly diminishes. This is one of my favorites.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured from a 750ml bottle into a tulip glass, but not all at the same time. Light golden with a medium white head. Aroma was of spice, malt and a touch of banana. The taste started out with a touch of sweetness and malt with some spice and turned dry as it warmed. there was a noticeable alcohol bite. I have a bit of a sweet tooth and really like the other Gouden offerings for this reason. I was a bit disappointed in this and rate the ambrio, classic and Cuvee Van De Keizer among my favorites, but this one is lagging for me.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pour is a golden with a super huge white head. Aroma is lots of yeast and cloves with some fruits showing up. Flaovr is a bit lower than the aroma but there are some sour fruit and a bit of honey. So-so for the style.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
About 5 years old. Aromas of light caramel, malt and some spice. Hazy, light ripe apricot color with a head that did not hang around. Starts with ripe fruit flavor, moves to Belgian candy, then on to spicy malt, ending a bit hoppy with balancing caramel / lightly roasted maltiness. Very lightly spritzy carbonation. Most everything about this tastiness is that it’s light. No one thing unreasonably dominates.

Pours a nice slightly hazy golden color. nice slightly hopped arome with hints of candi sugar, ripe citrus fruit and slight spice. the flavor is great with a nice tripel sweetness and spice, but there is a nice hoppiness from the dry-hopping. I love this freaking beer.

Competent but won’t blow you away. Blond ale-like with sweet malts and hints of corriander. Eats up the 9% with ease. (e2.60 on tap at Kulminator).

Delicious triple. Nice white head, beautiful lacing, Nose has anise notes. Taste is a little sweet for me, but delicious. The color is amber with a nice cloud.

UPDATED: AUG 14, 2007 Golden muddy coloration. High/average carbonation. Excellent cream. This beer has an uneven taste, maybe notes of honey and orange................................PORTUGUÊS: Coloração golden turva, com coisas acontecendo... Carbonatação média/alta. Ótimo creme. Essa ceva tem um gosto ímpar, que pra mim se deve às notas de mel e laranja.
