3.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: AUG 17, 2004 Light amber color with smallish tan head. Aroma is big, of ripe bananas, alcohol and bubblegum. Taste is more of the same. Tastes a bit more than 8% but what do I know. Chewy consistency. A bit sweet for my liking without much hop balance or yeast to it for a tripel.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
Fresh and fruity aroma comes from a cloudy and golden beer. The flavor is a combination between bitter and sweet with hints of fruits (perhaps orange fruits?) A good beer, although a was a bit disappointed with the palate - is never reaches the cornes of the mouth and it’s too sparkly!

Hazy orange appearance, with a nose of alcohol, butter, rum, and old fruit... old bananas. Sticky palate, full I guess, with a slightly spicy banana and grain flavor. Burps tangy bananas and lemons.

Bottled (330ml). A golden tripel with just a little bit of yeast making for a cloudy brew. Light carbonation, bubble gum/fruit flavour. Very good.

Esta es una muy buena cerveza. Es una cerveza oscura, un cierto sabor agridulce y afrutado.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
My first beer after a 12 day "liver healing" abstinence. Good to be back! Starts off with a light amber colored pour with a light, yet clumpy white head, good lacing. Effervescent bubble action lasts throughout - very good looking brew. Aroma - Alcohol is most apparent but not overwhelming, also note traces of bubble gum and apricots. Flavor has a slight bit of nuttiness with faint bubblegum and cotton candy sugar sweetness. Not very complex. Alcohol is apparent but not overwhelming. Carbonation is just about right - not champagne-like - but lively and perky. Very drinkable Tripel, not one for the ages, but a pleasant diversion.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours with a glistening mahogany body… one of the darker Triples I’ve sampled… and a fluffy cream-colored head. The aroma is alive with plums and apricot… rather malty. The flavor brings some toasty malts, lots of caramel upfront with some notes of oak nutty almond likening. I even find some suggestions of ripened cantaloupe… the palate is rather buttery… very stick and sweet. Certainly not the classic Triple for me, this has far darker malts… but very nice stuff overall.
Post Note: Funny how both DrBeer and I both found notes of Apricot and almond… I didn’t even read his rating before I typed this up.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Brite orange to copper in color. Beautiful white head lingers atop the glass. Fruity esters in the aroma balanced by fresh malt characters. Somewhat astringent in flavor, slightly sweet, and extremely well balanced. The epidomy of the triple style.
