3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
330 ml bottle. Pours dark, hazy amber. Pretty frothy, creamy head depending on how you pour. Aroma is sweet with strawberries, bananas and alcohol. Body follows suit with some spice, syrup and sugar. This is much better as it warms to room temperature, but the alcohol is ever-present no matter what the temperature is. For the price I will find much more enjoyable belgians.

Sept. 2007 - Beer pours dark brown with huge-oh head and minimal lacing. Aroma of candied sugar. Flavor was ultra rich, heavy on brown sugar with a nice smattering of fruity flavors. Nice beer!

4.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours cloudy light brown with a small head of smaller bubbles. Aroma is sweet dried fruit. yeast and a bit of alcohol. Mouth feel is surprisingly thick for a triple. The flavor is where this ale shines. Multiple fruit flavors dance around the tongue with raisin, apricot and maybe a touch of banana. Rich, sweet bread flavors follow. The alcohol is almost completely hidden besides the nice burn going down your throat. A really great ale.

Thick brown pour with some white head. Nice fruity aroma, some hints of cream and milk. Strong alcohol-grainy flavor, but also sweet. Some fruit and grape flavors. Just way too much alcohol taste. Good not great.

Excellent ale on draft at a local beer bar. Flavors were fruity and creamy and reminiscent of the Belgian Ale style. Very good beer.

33 cL bottle. Pours hazy to murky brown with a lacing tan head. Light earthy aroma with a minor note of caramel. Flavour is extremely sweet and with solid flavour of caramel malt. Dried fruit notes appear just before and into the finish.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a deep dark brown with a huge frothy off white head. Smells of ruit and alcohol. Much sweeter than I would expec for a triple, but the sweetness suits the flavor of plums well. Mouthfeel is great...thick, but not syrupy, and lots of carbonation. This is a very good ale.
