4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottled: Golden orange coloured. Lasting white head. Very spicy and fruity aroma. Light alcahol notes. Fruity, malty and sweet flavour. When the beer warms up, you can feel the alcahol on the lips. Has a pleasant fruity aftertaste with a little alcahol bite. Great beer.

Really nice triple. Spicey, fruity - peachy, very light sourness, sweet and dry at the same time. not too thick - just right. Glowing yellow, good head and lacing.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
Looks orange with a big fluffy head, hazy. Smells like an orange, with just a hint of mustiness. There is a definite bite on the palate. Flavor is fairly complex, oranges, grape must, barnyard, and a pinch of salt, with a hoppy, bone dry finish. Interesting, but not totally my thing in the end.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Aroma of sweet malt and a mild cinnamon. Standard ever present creamy belgian head. Flavor of malt, dark fruit, and mild cinnamon. No alcohol flavor detectable. Not the best tripel but a decent representation of what I expect the style to be.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Delicious stuff. Full of flavor and a terrific finish that ends in a wonderful, malty, brown sugar that goes on and on - much like I would enjoy drinking this - on and on. Quite good. Many thanks to the incredible Dougster.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cloudy golden in appearance with a sweet Belgiany aroma. Flavor is of spice and licorice. You can sense the alcohol, but you can't taste it or smell it as you'd expect at 9% ABV. I'm definitely a novice when it comes to Belgian beers but I do like this one - it's worth it's fairly high rating.
