A blond-amber coloured beer with a fluffy white head. The aroma is sweet and malty. A sweet and fruity taste. The flavour is a bit too sweet for me. (Bottle 33cl aged 2.5 years)

Pours bright gold into a tulip. Bright white micro head slowly recedes. Sweet raisin aromas. Dry and tart with a lasting bitter/sweet finish.

Smells like a triple with just a little extra malt. Pretty dry, w/some noticeable finishing hops. Another nice beer, no. 27, for the list.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
750 ml bottle. Pours out a brownish yellow color with a white head that goes away pretty quickly. Smell is spicy, hoppy, and malty. Some sugar and lemon is also apparent. Taste is smooth with no trace of the alcohol being evident at all. There is also a nice lemony flavor to it. Pretty good stuff actually. Not too hoppy, which is good because extremely hoppy tripels are not my thing.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: OCT 26, 2006 750mL, no date. Pours a clear golden with gigantic, frothy white head. Aroma has some yeast, spicy hops, banana, candy sugar, and light oranges. Flavor a lot more stale fruity than I had anticipated, with a nice, dry finish. Overall taste leans much more to sweetness, with some raisins and oranges being up front. Thick mouthfeel, still fairly carbonation despite everything that went to its head. There is a little warming in the back of the throat from the ETOH.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
This beverage pours a slightly cloudy, very light coppery yellow color, with a tall, foamy head that sticks around. It’s got a crisp, sweet smell of candy and malt, with spice and citrus in the background. The carbonation is abundant and moderately prickly, but the beer is heavy in the mouth, and the carbonation is welcome to balance that. The beer has a mostly sweet flavor, but it’s more complex than my other recent adventures, with hints of banana, herb, spice and citrus. Sips finish pleasantly dry with an alcohol warmth coming back for the last word. There’s a slightly bitter aftertaste, but it’s not at all unpleasant. Overall? Yum!
