Draft. Pours gold with a white head. Light malty aroma with some fruity sweetness and a light yeasty note. The flavor is fruity sweet with notes of peach, licorice, and a light spiciness. Not bad.

Pours a clear, golden bronze with a nicely-lacing white head. Aroma of bready Belgian yeast and some sweet pale maltiness and coriander. Starts lightly pale malty and sweet with a nice balance of coriander spice and black peppery yeast. Exhibits pretty good balance and authenticity. A nice abbey tripel.

Ernest (6834) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - SEP 5, 2010
Bottle. Head is initially small, frothy, white, mostly diminishing. Body is hazy dark yellow, bottle conditioned. Aroma is moderately malty (toasted grain, caramel), lightly hoppy (flowers), moderately yeasty (basement), with notes of wood/cork, alcohol, pear syrup, metal. Flavor is moderately to heavily sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly acidic, moderately bitter. Medium to full body, velvety/watery texture, lively carbonation, moderately alcoholic. A nearly impossible beer to rate. Bottles are all over the place wrt quality and character. I’ve had 4+ bottles, but most are high 2s to mid 3s. Too expensive to gamble with until they make this more reliable.

750. Pours amber orangey with an enormous fluffy white cumulus head. Big pear and apple nose, smells dry. Tastes dry, with the apple notes predominating. Not much else going on, other than a wee splash of herbal notes in the attack as it warms.

750ml bottle shared with Tom to finish off our little tasting: Cloudy amber hued with small head and spotty lace. The aroma has notes of apricot, banana, clove, pepper. yeasty phenolic esters along with some cane sugar and bready malt. The taste is sweet and quite fruity with a twangy midesection before heading off towards a dry earthy and woody finish. The mouth feel is soft and lush, full-bodied brew. Nice enough but lacks the depth of the better examples of the genre. Sweet and fruity but not much else going on.

5000 (6499) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - MAR 30, 2007
Bottle: Dull straw, quite hazy, moderate sudsy white head, dies quickly making it appear fairly still, hardly any lacing.   Doesn’t look all that appealing.   Dull grassy notes, semi-sweet, hay and oats.   No floral aspect that I can detect.   Combination sweet straw, grassy malts, a little barnish, with a slight cheese funk on the backside.   Not what I expected for a "Belgian Style Triple".   Body and mouthfeel are at best moderate.   Finish has a little oat/hay funk, cereal oriented sweet twang.   I think I paid around $14 for a 750ml of this... and now I feel cheated.   I know Arlen could do a better job than this.   This was too much like homebrew!

jonas (6175) - Garching b. München, GERMANY - FEB 26, 2007
Bottle. Fruity with clear wooden and horseblanket notes on top. Hazy orange, lacing layer. Tropical fruits, cider, spice. Dry sparkly mouthfeel, medium body. Quick tart apple finish. Nice, not sure it lives up to the price though.

This wins the prize for the most secured bottle of beer I’ve ever had to break into ... corked, capped and wax-sealed. Damn, I was thirsty by the time I got in there. This poured a lightly hazy orange-yellow, quietly active but without much of a staying head. The aroma is very, very sweet, almost like a syrupy fruit salad or a can of mandarin oranges. This drinks as one would expect for a tripel ... yeasty, lightly fruity (mostly blood orange-like sweetness) and a pulpy body. Nice tangy finish. This drinks quite well and would go well with an Asian salad or a plate of mild cheeses. (#3126, 10/7/2007)
