JorisPPattyn (7807) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - AUG 12, 2003
Yellow with amber shine. Creamy white head. Champenoise pearling, lacey. Nose with white sugar, grain, flowery, sugar syrup. Syrupy taste, scorched sugar with bitterish-metallic tang. Maize or corn-syrup? Very obvious carbonation, with sourish CO2-character. Medium-bodied. One of the lesser tripels. The metallic, schorched taste is unforgivable. Do they WANT a bad name?

RichardGretton (4227) - Leicestershire, ENGLAND - JUL 17, 2003
Light blonde ale a with a constant frothy head. Fruity alcoholic aroma and a dense fruity alcoholic flavour that has a very bitter finish. A good Belgian triple.

nigos (631) - Ipswich, Suffolk, ENGLAND - JUL 1, 2003
Orangey and citrus nose. Golden hue with the obligatary massive head. Orangey and spicey tones with hints of cognac. Fantastic stuff.

Linc (737) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - JUN 21, 2003
Aroma of apples and black pepper. Brilliantly clear red/gold colour with fine white head and tiny bubbles. Has a little honey and apricots in the flavour but the yeast brings out perhaps a little too much bite. Clean acidic finish, excellent mouthfeel. Could have been a lot better if it had a more balanced flavour.

Dalle (1145) - Skørping, DENMARK - JUN 12, 2003
Large white head that slowly diminishes. Darkish golden body. Aroma; flowers, slightly acidic, yeast. Taste; fresh, slightly acidic, hint of pepper, bitter finish. Nice.

Sigmund (4948) - Tau, NORWAY - JUN 1, 2003
(33 cl bottle). Golden beer with a slight yeast haziness, large head. Very weak initial aroma, improves as the beer warms up - I get caramel, oak, honey and apricot. Very sweet fruity and honeylike flavour, next to cloying, low bitterness - a dessert beer, I'd say. Overall I'm a bit disappointed with this one, you expect more from the Belgians.

Ungstrup (29112) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - MAY 22, 2003
An unclear dark orange beer with a fine but fast disappearing head. The aroma is very sweet and slightly fruity. the flavor is sweet, sligthly metallic, and fruity with notes of oranges and other fruits. A really complex beer - especially for a triple. There is no hint of the alcohol content - but no bitterness either - but it still has a nice balance.

jazz88 (2542) - San Francisco, California, USA - MAY 11, 2003
Bottle. Hazy copper color with an off-white head. A sweet candy, caramel, apple, brown sugar, coating flavor that is soft and zesty.

pivo (2544) - GERMANY - MAR 11, 2003
Overall disappointed, but still a decent brew. Certainly not the best tripel I've ever had...The nose was best part for me: substantial amount of spices (corriander), pine needles and yeast laced with alcohol. Cool hazy orange color and a foamy lacey head. Some candied sugar, some vanilla tone, maybe oranges and apricots too in the taste. No real hop character or bitterness to speak of. Cardboardy aftertaste. Quick profile and thinish with a creamy mouth feel. Drinkable for sure, but weak for a tripel.

YogiBeera (2444) - New Jersey, USA - MAR 11, 2003
Apricot and light sour malt mixture nose. Orange color, little foamy head. Liveley carbonation. Taste grape, apricots, vanilla. Pricks in the mouth. Short grape finish, also honey in the end. Ok.
