atpayne (615) - Zionsville, Indiana, USA - FEB 13, 2007
Clear copper orange pour beneath a snow white head which leaves great lacing. The aroma is a bit of cider, malt, and alcohol along with some yeast and fruit. The flavor is tangy, sweet, and a bit fruity. There is an astringent alcohol flavor with a toasty malt at the back of the throat that has a sweet aspect and finishes with a light alcohol tingle. Pretty nice flavors and balance.

henrikb (1261) - Aarhus, DENMARK - JAN 21, 2007
33cl bottled 2003 - Beautiful amber body, huge white head, thick lacing; Incredible deep nose, flowers, bread and alcohol, balanced and pleasant; Initially a very fresh body, balanced, perfect texture and carbonation, as soon as swallowed it becomes incredible sweet (unfitting), flowers and malt in aromas and alcohol showing, very pleasant as well, but doesnít fit to well with the rest of the beer. It seems that it could easily be kept longer.

Lilith (242) - Santiago, CHILE - JAN 21, 2007
Bright orange color, hazy, with lots of small particles ascending to its beautiful creamy, off-white head. Aroma is sweet, cereal, hoppy like bread, wiht notes of honey, toffee and peach. Flavor is similar to the aroma but smoother and more alcoholic and spicy. Liquorish texture, bitter finish.

Panzerfaust (784)
- Hanga Roa, Easter Island, CHILE - JAN 19, 2007
Bottle from Eurohappy: Pours a hazy dark orange color. Head is big, white though itís not very persistant. It leaves a nice lacing. Aroma is very spicy, yeasty and fruity. More like a Tripel than anything else. It shows notes of oranges, peaches, coriander, pepper, vanilla and liquorish hints of curazao. After that you can sense a very unusual hoppy aroma of cannabis, resin and pine. Wow, this is weird in a belgian beer. Complex. Flavor is more like a Quad. Intense, sweet, liquorish with notes of cognac, oranges, tequila sunrise, apricots and some berries. Good bitterness in the end along with an alcoholic burn. Great. Body is big, thick oily texture. Very strong alcoholic presence. Warming sensation while sipping. Nice carbonation for the style. Good aftertaste. A very interesting, different brew.

OldMrCrow (2339) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JAN 8, 2007
Bottle.

Pours golden orange, lots of suspended floaty material, and with a big white egg-white head that clings to the sides of the glass as the head recedes in an opaque layer of white lacing. Gentle citrus and flowers on the aroma, a very slight sour funkiness and a hint of honey. Like the appearance, the flavor is that of tripel, orange peel and candy sugar, maybe a whisp of pineapple, a bit too much hops-turned-to-cheese. Mouthfeel is rich and here the alcohol warmth on the palate is quite enjoyable, as it blends with a final (modest) snap of hops to finish off each sip.

Itís not a masterpiece by any means, but itís a perfectly respectable beer.

Nowadays this beer is called TRIPLE ABT. It is a beer of high alcohol %, and you taste it. That is waht I do not like on this beer.

Sickboy282 (1114) - San Diego, California, USA - DEC 28, 2006
Pours a cloudy orange brown hue with a cloudy white frothy head. Aromas of citrus, and spice. Flavors of caramel, old hops, milk and more spice.

DonMagi (5594) - bantervile, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - DEC 24, 2006
This is a triple. Aroma is very fruity, yeasty, floural grassy with a bit of sweetness off the malts but very nice. Taste is similar grassy, bittering hops balance it out well, probably the best triple iv ever had and one to have again.
