kopestes (164) - Braine lAlleud, BELGIUM - NOV 30, 2006
UPDATED: DEC 1, 2006 0.33l bottle at home. Yellow with almost no head. Some lacing though. Aroma is very light fruity and some spicy hint. Aroma is more intense as beer warmes up-gets more spicy. Quite spicy taste in the beginning and malty at the end. Alcohol is quite present. It is a nice triple.

Bottle, 33cl. Nice golden colour. Highly carbonated at the beggining (almost like champagne), with a beautiful white head that disappears fast. Mine wasnt cold enough so the first impression was quite good but at the end, the fruitness was a little bit annoying. Nevertheless, a great beer. Be careful because the alcohol is very well hidden. Approved.

bottle from Total Wine Tampa - very sweet and fruity, orange, coriander and other spices - maybe too sweet but pretty dirink and hides the alcohol

750ml bottle from Red Carpet Wine and Liquor in Glendale CA. Seems its been there a while since the cork is dated 09-2003, so hopefully it has been treated well for the last 2 years. Ill re-rate when I get a bottle that Im sure hasnt been mistreated. Perhaps given too much sunlight-the aroma is a bit skunked.. unfortunate. Flavor is very sweet, maybe some butterscotch taste.. but that could be mistreatment. Very smooth drinking but it would be even more smooth if the sweetness was toned down a bit more. Looks beautiful in a standard Chimay trappist glass, nice color too. Leaves a strange aftertaste but maybe thats me. I think now on Ill stick to Lees liquor because they know heat and light destroy beer and wine.. got this from Red Carpet Wine while searching for rare beers.

SirRepsol (158) - Cologne, GERMANY - AUG 30, 2012
from bottle. pours a pale yellow, slightly hazy colour with one-finger head that quickly disappears. quite spicy aroma with belgian yeast and some lemon and pear notes. fizzy carbonation, medium body and oily texture. sweet but heavily artificial fruit flavours mixed with a sharp alcoholic note. and i do not like the addition of ascorbic acid - there is no place for such substances in beer in my opinion!

seynie (155) - Tienen, BELGIUM - MAR 18, 2014
Hazy Gold with a nice top, a bit creamy. Alcohol dominates a bit too much; I understand that it is because of the high alcohol % but why have such a high level if it only dominates other aromas? Finish is rather short if not for the alcohol. Bitterness is OK

ampp (155) - Cleveland, Ohio, USA - MAR 9, 2009
It has a light amber color with a white head. The smell has some fruitiness in it but it is mainly a smoky spice aroma. It reminds me of beef jerky. At the first sip, I noticed the same spice. It also has some citrus and malt flavor. The alcohol is strong, but not to harsh on the mouth. It is pretty good stuff. Not the best Abbey Tripel, but far from the worst.

RedEft (154) - Wichita, Kansas, USA - OCT 14, 2006
In a chilled mug...Deep gold with a white, quickly disappearing head. Moderate aroma of sweet corn, alcohol, and a fruit difficult to pin down. Grape perhaps? Taste is ever so slightlyl spiced, very sweet and full of alcohol. Too sweet. Not enough character to balance the sweet or the alcohol. Wait...the 11% just kicked in, telling me this beer is not so disappointing after all! But Ill stay with my sober assessment.

unibaren (154) - 8000 rhus C, DENMARK - JUN 18, 2007
Spicy and yeasty aroma with lots of alcohol sweetness. Clear golden colour, with lots of carbonation. Head is white and lasts surprisingly long for a beer with such a high alcohol contents. Tast corresponds well with the aroma eventhough the alcohol contents is even more dominating. Falls somewhere in between "to much alcohol" and "pretty good"
