armando629 (2455) - Budapest, HUNGARY - JAN 26, 2008
Good and strong one. Delisicious appearance with a nice amber color and the creamy and foamy head. The aroma is complex,&spicy with fruits, honey and nuts. The flavour is sweet malt and spices with some banana. Nice aftertaste.

TrefwoordPunk (868) - Leiden, NETHERLANDS - JAN 20, 2008
Bottle 33 cl. Pours a clear amber with a big creamy head and a sweet smell of ripe fruits (citrus and peach) and syrup. The flavor is like a heavily sweet triple, ripe fruits, mainly citrus, coriander and yeast. But there are some non-tripley, like toffee, biscuits and coffee with sugar and cream. The finish is bitter, like roasted grains. Good

kappldav123 (5810) - GERMANY - JAN 16, 2008
The bottle looks really good, the beer in the glass also. Very creamy foam. Flavor is not so good, very much like medicine. The finish somehow chemical. Not so good.

Laegraid (37) - Oslo, NORWAY - JAN 13, 2008
Notes of perfume and "yeast". Its a nice complex beer, but with a overpowering yeasty feel to it.

Grain/molasses/toffee aroma. Large, creamy, off-white head. Burnt toffee appearance. Lightly sweet/salty flavour. medium to full syrupy palate.

beerheart (237) - Erie, Colorado, USA - JAN 12, 2008
Pours a rich amber with a thin lasting head that laces throughout the drink. The aroma is yeast, dried apricots, aged apples, with hints of raisins and currants. The taste is primarily bread and malt. The taste is a little flat compared to the aroma, and there is a ripe banana flavor that seems slightly out of balance. Finishes with a slight metallic feel. Not nearly as flavorful as other Trippels / Belgian Strong ales. But the only disappointment here is the slightly metallic finish.

mike_77 (4738) - Breda, NETHERLANDS - JAN 2, 2008
Pale red brown colour with thin but long lasting head. Aroma is rich & fruity with a little maltiness coming through too. This is very smooth and silky beer with flavours of cranberries and other red fruits leading to a lightly sweet finish.

downender (7627) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - DEC 30, 2007
330ml bottle. Amber coloured with a moderate, off-white head. Sweet aroma with some grain and spice. Flavour also had plenty of sweet malt and spice, with some orange peel and a warming alcohol finish. Good.

Bottled @ Tortula, Sao PAulo, Brazil. A clear amber beer with a big beige head. Aroma is sweety, fruity and a bit flowery. Taste is sweety and malty, notes of caramel. Some vinous and bitterness in the end
