Bottle. Candied orange/cherry, toffee malt and alcohol aroma. Hazy golden yellow with minimal head. Sweet orange pulp, yeast, toffee malt, and lightly bitter herb and alcohol flavor. Don’t think aging helped this much.

Backlogged review, bottle with Fantasia drank in 2011. Orange color pour with small to medium head. Notes are boozey fruit cake, Belgian malt, Christmas spice, plums, figs and grain. Over carbonated and boozy for my taste.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Deep orange with very thin head, slight lacing. Not as carbonated as I typically like my trippels to be. Belgian candied sugar is evident, very sweet. Trappist yeast gives it the needed Belgian feel. Not much of an aroma. Okay for the style.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 14/20
Overall quality is poor, a big beer 10% abv with too much fusel alcohol and rough flavors to cohesively recognize as a quality tripel.
