dirkbreedveld (288) - NETHERLANDS - SEP 2, 2003
for me in colour a little too dark, but it's a very refreshing beer, with a nice balance in sweetness and hoppieness

lumpsowers (287) - Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, USA - APR 12, 2009
Cloudy amber pour, big frothy head, serious lacing. Bready, spicy aroma. Complex, floral and spicy, sweet without being cloying. Fizzy carb with medium mouth. Acidic, not bitter, with cinnamon and caramel tones. Excellent!

cathschlag (48) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 20, 2006
Une bière belge à mes yeux quasi parfaite, comme je les aime! Superbe mousse qui colle parfaitement aux parois du verre. Les bulles, très fines, remontent à la surface dans un tourbillon ennivrant. On ne cesse de la humer tant son odeur est parfaite et délectable. Miel, fruits confits ou bubble gum (?), nul ne le sait. En bouche, l’alcool se fait discret malgré ses 7,5 %.

Cobra (1100) - Banned City, - NOV 10, 2007
750 ml brown, caged & corked Belgian bottle. No freshness date seen. Loud pop released the cork. Spirited? I’ll go with that. Very effervescent, highly carbonated. Poured out a dark straw color, with a long lasting meringue head. Aromas are of fresh Timothy grass, some barnyard, definite Belgian yeast. Flavors are of citrus peels, sweet malts, some Belgian funk. Decent mouthfeel, decent body too. Finished somewhat spicy. Damn tasty triple overall.

gfolivares (67) - McAllen, Texas, USA - MAY 9, 2008
Pours a hazy orange-yellow color with thick, creamy head. Citrusy, sweet malty aromas upon nosing with hints of yeasty dough, dark molasses, anise, and ripe fruit. Full bodied with a thick, chewy mouthfeel. Initial impresion on the tongue is ripe bananas sauteed in rum, vanilla extract, and burnt sugar. the taste then developes into further complexity with suggestions of warm, spiced fruit cake soaked with brandy, and an appetitizing hop bitterness with a slightly acidic astringency. Long, warming finish with lingering notes of burnt brown sugar butterscotch sauce, vanilla bean, and biscuit dough. Try with spiced fruit cake drenched with cognac or bananas fosters desert with vanilla bean ice cream.

flavio_b (277) - ROME, ITALY - JAN 6, 2011
On tap at Ma Che Siete Venuti a Fà, is one of the beer I’ve drunk more than one time when it was available on tap at the beer bar. Very blond appearance, persistent froth, fruity, long finish and not too much carbonated. Despite that it is a triple, it is not too much strong and it is well balanced. Very nice.

ads135 (2814) - Lawrence, Kansas, USA - OCT 20, 2011
A solid triple, golden in coloration. Huge head that features a spicy aroma. Taste features hints of spice but a dollop of bread and yeastiness.

VincentDamon (303) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 5, 2013
Belle bière belge. Triple qui est moins sucrée que ce à quoi je m’attendais. Arômes difficiles à cerner. Alcool très présent mais notes de fruits absentes au bouquet, ce qui m’a surpris vu le style. Très belle mousse qui perdure. Bonne bière ! Cheers.

Gusler (2653) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - APR 1, 2002
Nice clear orange color, off white head and decent lace. Nose is sweet, banana like, malts, ripe fruit. Front is malt sweet, the top light, the finish is dry, acidic, moderate carbonation and a touch of hops. Much better than the ’Blonde’, more sting to this beer, more flavors to please the palate.
