3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Burnt straw coloured body with a touch of orange colouring. Full size white frothy head and big chunks of lacing. Alcohol is most noticeable in the taste, then some spice followed by a touch of caramel. More drinkable as it warms but just doesn’t turn me on too much.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
30cl bottle. Poured a medium amber with a good white head. Lots of yeast with some sweet citrus in the nose. Flavor was very will balenced. A nice bit of spicy sweetness on the tongue, and finish slightly bitter. I’m looking forward to the rest of this six-pack.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Beautiful orangish-light amber beer. Head is big, creamy and with good retention. Some sediments and a moderate carbonation. Aroma of fruits like apples, plums and peaches. Well disguised alcohol with a very drinkable character. Flavor is pleasant with some banana and fruit salad sweetness, ending short and slightly bitter. An exquisite drink.

3.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Nice floral aroma. Pours a dark amber color with a light head. Taste is mostly fuirty yeasty flavors, with a bit too much alcohol coming through. After taste is a pleasant bread like flavor. A good beer, but not the best triple.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
My i wrote these scores only 20-30 mins ago and as my thoughts go over it i feel as if im very much so over scoring it. Aroma is honey sweetness with sumflowers and orange having a little say. Taste is also similar with some buttery caramel malt kicking in however theres some lemon zest trying to hide the sweetness which helps. I can understand now why people say this isnt as good as it used to be since its been overtaken, as theres far far better examples of the style. Rather upsetting to see a trappist brew something so bad.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle - December 2005
Pours dark copper, caramelly colour. With a medium not-so-frothy-as-expected white head, that almost completely disappears after a while and sees itself reduced to a white rim, leaving,some lacing as my chalices empties.
Aroma is sweet, yeast, pungent but captivating.
Taste is strong, sweet, a bit of burnt, but not offending. It reminds me a bit of Leffe blond but on steroids, you can really feel the yeast profile and the candi here, it has a fruity touch to it too. You can clearly feel the 8% and it even tastes stronger. Mouthfeel is full despite its lightness. Aftertaste is spicy and intense.
A beatifull triple indeed.
