UPDATED: JUL 12, 2011 Bottle. Poured a clear dark brown with a small light brown creamy head that disappeared very quickly and had fair lacing. The aroma was of nutty dark malts and a horse blanket scented yeast with notes of brown sugar, raisons and dried fruit. It tasted sweet, rich and malty with hints of brown sugar at the start but matured into a nice sweet-sour yeasty flavor with notes of dried fruit at the end that left the flavor lasting an average duration on the taste buds. Mouthfeel was medium in body and nice and creamy in texture. Overall a very interesting brew. Sweet yet bold in flavor, which did a great job of concealing the high alcohol content. One definitely worth trying again.

Bue en bouteille de 33cl, couleur blonde mousse moyenne tout comme l’effervescence, en bouche peu de goűt hormis sur l’alcool et le grain intéręt plus que limité hormis pour se bourrer la gueule... Bičre d’alcoolo avec de la thune !

TtV (23) - Nijmegen, NETHERLANDS - JUL 10, 2014
Bottle 33cl. Aroma (which is a little flat) doesn’t do justice to the lovely beer. Nice dark yellow view with a thick white head that lasts. Would have expected a sweet taste, but it has a lovely bitterness. Good beer for a warm day.

Holmen2 (632) - NORWAY - JUL 9, 2014
Hazy golden. Impressivly dense and persistent white head and lacing. Aroma of banana, coriander, tropical fruits and marmelade. Similar taste, balanced with moderate bitterness. Aftertaste of unripe bananas with a bitter hint. Superbly drinkable considering its high ABV.

R2k2 (338) - NETHERLANDS - JUL 5, 2014
A slightly cloudy, somewhat orange-yellow colored beer with a fluffy layer of foam. The aroma, which comes from the yeast, resembles the smell of champagne or white wine. A nice, bitter taste with some alcohol in it, and the slightly bitter aftertaste doesn’t hold to long. Een lichtjes troebel, half oranje, half geel bier met een schuimige kraag. Het aroma van de gist lijkt op dat van champagne of witte wijn. Een lekkere bittere smaak waar ook de alcohol goed in vertegenwoordigd is. De iets bittere nasmaak blijft niet te lang hangen.

ryanscourt (662) - Latrobe, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 23, 2014
Cloudy yellow. Doughy flavor and taste. Not really fits my traditional tripel expectations of spicy and zippy flavors. None better than victory golden monkey in my book (will see later if If one actually becomes higher)

adster (120) - HUNGARY - JUN 22, 2014
Rendkívül élénken, pezsgő módjára érkezett meg a pohárba sistergő habot csiholva, mely viszonylag hamar búcsút is intett. Élesztős, gabonás illata van némi fanyarsággal és alkoholos jelleggel, mely ízében is igen erőteljesen megnyilvánul: a megszokott alapjegyekre rányomja bélyegét az alkoholos test, mely idővel szépen kisimul, ám mindvégig megadja ellentmondást nem tűrő, markáns karakterét a sörnek.

GuideDogSaint (53) - Epsom, Surrey, ENGLAND - JUN 21, 2014
Bottle from Charter Mall, Chongqing Lu, Changchun, China. Pours golden with minimal head. Typical Belgian tripel, bitter aftertaste. For 11% alcohol is not noticeable. Very nice.

hohops (211) - Kent, ENGLAND - JUN 20, 2014
Appearance- clear golden, plenty of carbonation, one finger pure white head. Aroma- spicy, yeast, sweet banana, fruits, malty undertones. Taste- full mouthfeel, big sweetness, sugary fruits, caramel, banana, a bit creamy and syrupy, malty finish, bread and yeast. Alcohol quite well hidden, although you get some at the end. Good, a bit on the sweet side.
