3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
A delight! Intense coloration. Dense and persistent cream. Weak, but aromatic. In the palate, present flavor of red fruits and banana. Incredible aftertaste, candy and fruity, perhaps optimum of this blond one. Good carbonation. The alcohol is a little strong excessively, but it does not confuse the set.....................................PORTUGUÊS: Uma delícia!
Coloração avermelhada intensa. Creme denso e persistente.
Aroma fraco, mas marcante.
No paladar, sabor presente de frutas vermelhas e banana. Retrogosto incrível, doce e frutado, talvez o melhor dessa loira.
Carbonatação bacana. O álcool é um pouco forte demais, mas não atrapalha o conjunto.

UPDATED: SEP 8, 2008 Álcool muito presente. Carbonatação que me incomodou um pouco. Levemente amarga. Pouco creme, tendo se perdido logo no início. Aroma fraco. Cor bonita (avermelhada). Faltou um melhor balanceamento na sua composição e também uma certa personalidade.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle (from Bitter Virtue, BB Jul 08). Deep coppery orange colour. Fruity yeast and coriander on the nose. Well rounded mouthfeel slightly creamy but not overly sweet. Some hints of bitter zest in the mouth with more summer stoned fruits. A full and tasty tripel perhaps more suited to drinking incolder weather than many but I would prefer it to feel just a touch more bright and breezy.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours golden brown with a small white head. Aroma is yeasty, with some fruity smells as well as a slightly metallic odor of some kind. Taste is malty and sweet, with a slightly fruity, bitter aftertaste. Besides the metallic smell it is very good, of course I am using a gold rimmed trappist glass, but have never noticed this before when using it. Still a good tripel, just not the best.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draught at Monk’s Café, Stockholm. Clear ddep golden, very brief head. Nice buttery malt mixes with almody yeast in the nose. Sweet with above medium body and rather soft mouthfeel. Mild flavours of Old English Marmelade and flowery yeast. Not the most adventurous of tripels, but a solid effort that I certainly wouldn’t mind paying for again.

UPDATED: SEP 13, 2007 Bottled 0,75L [Dominus Triple].
Compact and creamy head, optimal resistance. Nice intense orange, copper color with clear glares; much fraught and hazy with discreet fizz. Rich and alcoholic scent, many pleasant notes of plum, stum, ferment and withered grape. Violent, round, extremely alcoholic and liqueury taste with determined and sweet body.
