2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle Conditioned. From BeersOfEurope. BBE Dec 2005. Pale gold with thin foam head. Spicy orange liquor aroma. Dense tingly mouthfeel. Alcohol all over the place. I really should stop drinking these damn strong beers so young. Like a tingly, thinner, paler, spicier Barley Wine. I don't think I'm really a fan of Tripels.

Non-transparant brwon amber colour, with a little bit of bubbles. Slightly brownish head. Alcoholic, spicy (koriander) aroma. The flavour is also alcoholish and spicy. It starts bittery and ends very bitter. A litte bit sweet too.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Deep golden colour with a beautiful and lasting white head. Impressive fruity aroma! Initial flavour is fruity too, then sweet and somewhat spicy. Sweet and bitter finish. Decent abbey trippel but too sweet imho.

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Hazy amber color. Malt, alcohol, egg nose. Good strength, but too much alcohol; otherwise, just reasonable malt and a quite stronger bitterness.

UPDATED: NOV 4, 2004 Draught at Akkurat, Stockholm. Pale golden, alittle hazy, no head. Aroma is yeasty, andfruity from grapes. Some bubbelgum. Flavor brings that fruity bubblegum-feeling and then turns into a quite bitter finish. Some nutty notes.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Orange amber body with a sturdy light tan head. Nose is sweet with candy sugar malt and alcohol and citrus notes. Sweet taste with more sugar and malt and white grapes and the tongue is surrounded with some effervescent bubbles in the mouthfeel and a light bitterness and dryness through the finish. Very good beer!

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Colour between old gold and amber, slightly hazy (not cold haze); thick yellowish head. Alcoholic nose, liqueurish, sugar and preserved sugared fruit. Explicitly sweet and alcoholic taste, fruit sugar as preserved figs or 'marrons glacées', etc., sultana's. Somewhere a woody touch. Lots and lots of alcoholburn in the mouthfeel, very dry. A triple, yes, with with the G.C. fingerprint all over it. Again a good one, IMO, because it is an original interpretation. I dislike copycats.
