Bottle @ Yespr tasting.
[thank you, Yespr]
Pours lightly hazy pale yellow, huge frothy and bubbly white head on top. Sweet and spicy aroma - light peppery. Good, light mouthfeel. Flavour is a bit plain, some fruity sweetness and dry spicy yeast aftertaste.

Feinschmecker (202) - Seattle, Washington, USA - OCT 14, 2007
On tap at Brouwers. Light brown cloudy appearance with a sweet and yeasty aroma. The powerful 8% is masked by the sweet apple and pear more than medium carbonated flavor. It does not remind me of any other tripel. It is not too heavy and refreshing.

fonefan (41314) - VestJylland, DENMARK - OCT 8, 2007
Bottle. Light unclear medium yellow orange color with a large to huge, frothy, good lacing, mostly lasting, white head. Aroma is moderate yeasty. Flavor is moderate sweet and bitter with a average duration. Body is medium, texture is oily, carbonation is lively. (160907)

FatPhil (12180) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - OCT 4, 2007
Draught (Live and Let Live, Cambridge) Light amber, very little head. Sweet malty aroma - says Belgian, and portends well. Rich malty taste, light malts, but very emphatic. Crisp hoppy hints give it some bite. Beautifully well balanced, and there’s no way in heck that this feels like an 8%! A truly marvelous brew, one of van Steenberge’s best.

heavy (2349) - Split, CROATIA - SEP 9, 2007
0.33l bottle. Pours enormous head (whole glass with no body at first!) which diminishes quite soon and murky yellow body. Aroma is sour with pine hops...vinegar... Flavor is still quite sour, citrus and other acidic things present. It has oily texture and not much carbonation, with, again, sour finish. As of BB 25/07/09 I assume it was not bad bottle, just it’s not my type. Really different than other triples... Interesting and not so bad...but I don’t think to buy it again.
