madquacker (1045) - Canberra ACT, AUSTRALIA - OCT 1, 2004
Yes very complex and sophisticated but wouldn’t want to have to drink this stuff regularly. I think I’m missing something with these Belgium beers... give me a half decent Czech pilsner any day over this so called beer.

kook (2033) - Perth, Western Australia, AUSTRALIA - SEP 26, 2004
Pours hazy light copper with a lasting large white head. Spicy doughy yeast aroma with some light citrus & fruit behind it. Smooth medium-full mouthfeel. Flavour starts sweet/fruity and finish is quite spicy. Alcohol shows through a little on the aftertaste. Still nice stuff though.

CampbellWilson (533) - SCOTLAND - SEP 5, 2004
33cl bottle. Excellent spicy tripel, complex and satisfying. Lovely orange, honey, vanilla, pepper and hop resin aroma. Full bodied mouthfeel for a beer light orange in colour, with long hoppy finish.

Sigmund (5193) - Tau, NORWAY - AUG 28, 2004
(33 cl bottle, bought in Denmark). Pours cloudy golden with floaties, large head. Strong yeasty and flowery sweet aroma , some spices (pepper) and herbs too. Flavour is fairly malty with a distinct peppery touch, hints of oak. Some alcoholic warmth, not unpleasant. Moderate but sufficient bitterness. Not bad at all.

jercraigs (7934) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 25, 2004
Hazy golden yellow, with a bit billowy white head and nice brewers lace. Sweeter than regular Hoegaarden, I detected less spice and citrus. Aroma is muted, with just a bit of yeast and alcohol poking through. Thicker palate than the wit as well. Enjoyable, thanks Doug.
