3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
330 ml bottle. Amber colour, crystal clear, and with lots of bubbles rising to the surface. Medium-sized consistent, but coarse white head. Rich lemony and apricoty aroma. Sweet notes, but still refreshing because of the fruit. Light flavours. High carbonation level makes this a refreshing and lively beer. Finishes with a light resiny flavour.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
bottle - Tripel? hmm... I don’t know about that. Pours clear and golden with a big, fluffy head. The aroma is yeasty, malty, and flowery. The flavor is sweet with some nice citrus notes. Medium bodied, lively on the palate, and easy going down with a clean finish, this is a pleasant lighter ale. Quite enjoyable.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Poured from a 330ml bottle into a tulip glass, golden with a medium and quickly diminishing white head. Aroma of yeast and citrus fruit. The taste was sweet up front with notes of apple and pear, but fades into ambiguity as it warms. Watery mouthfeel with medium carbonation. I don’t understand why this is categorized as a tripel. Grimbergen makes a tripel and this is advertised as a blonde ale and it certainly drinks like one.

Very full malt taste, a bit sweet, but that is balanced by a strong aroma from the yeast and a sourness in the finish. Some yeast lingers on the tongue. A bit rough, not the Duvel smoothness, but a pleasant beer.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: MAY 18, 2008 Light and airy is a good way to describe this brew. Wheats, faint floral, citrus, banana. A refreshing candy sweetness. The body is heavy and malty and the finish is just barely bitter. Easily drinkable.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
12 oz bottle. Almost clear golden with a small off white head. Aroma is very light spices, honey, light metallic. Taste is light citrus, light malts, light everything. Not very tasty, rather bland and watery. This is supposed to be tripel?
