Blond with a big creamy head. Flowery fruity aroma and taste. There is also an odd side taste.

Weak head, sweet citrusy aroma w/notes of alcohol. Great flavor! perfect blend of belgian goodness and effervescent tingle int he back of the throat...perfect finish.

Sour, cloudy, amber looking in my Chimay glass. Effervescent grapes in the nose following into the taste. For me, this is the perfect mix of their dubbel and their quad: nice fruitiness with a little extra kick.

Heavy Malt Nose,full of hoppiness and Belgian sweetness.Sweet at first then, hops, then flavors of orange and alcohol. Recommended if you like these type Ales, Tropical Storm Isidore is giving us some much needed rain, it was the 3rd driest Summer on record here where I live. This cool rain tells us that Oktoberfest is not far away.

UPDATED: JUN 18, 2006 Not quite as spicy or as floral as the Quadruppel. Little less carbonated too. Great beer, but prefer the the Quadruppel. Brownish blond; or is it blondish brown? Some spice or fruit - maybe coriander and orange with some cinnamon or apple as well. Recommended to all. (8, 4, 9, 4, 17)
***Re-rate 750mL bottle - corked and caged. Burnt blond body. Small white head on this as well. Nose is malty and sweet with lots of floral notes, candy, light yeast notes, spices, and ripened fruits. Taste is much the same with sweet malts, light alcohol, ripened fruits, candyish notes, light spices and light Belgian yeast. Body is lighter than I recall with a mild carbonation feel. Finishes pretty much the same but this seems lacking to what I recall.

Lovely (dubbel-like) tripel, quite good for a supermarket-tripel. Sweet, lasting taste.

A very good belgian ale. Extremely wonderful aroma. Great texture. Un describable taste. Floral and wine-like. Very very good beer.
