3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
750ml bottle poured in a Leffe chalice.
A: Pours a dark orange almost Amber colour with a big white and foamy head. Good retention and many lacings left
S: Sweet, fruity and spice. Honey, caramel malts and belgian yeasts. Quite strong on alcohol in the end
T: Caramel malts and Belgian yeasts are a must. Quite fruity too. Some honey. Balanced sweet-bitterness. Remarkable on personality. Once again, quite liquorous end
M: Heavy, creamy and a bit molasses body. Medium to low carbonation
O: Very decent Triple from a respectable brewery

330 ml bottle on clearance at the LCBO. Drank six months past its BB date (04-2014). Pours cloudy with average white head. Smells of bread, raisins, pears and caramel. Taste is fruity, grape, white wine, pear, Slightly warm finish. Balanced and easy drinking for its weight.

"very solid tripel. bready, balanced aroma. a little citrus, fruity malt and yeast. solid feel, not overdone on the carbonation. almost soft, but full. one of the better tripels out there."

33 cl porterhouse Dublin. Fantastisk god belgare. Lite stark dock så det går bara att dricka en.

lichte geur beetje caramel, weinig co2, beetje vlakke smaak, alcohol iets meer dan normale tripels. beetje een grondsmaak, niet heel uitgesproken. lichte smaak rustige nasmaak.

Bottle from Julio’s. Poured into a snifter. A clear deep honey color with a frothy off-white head that settles to a thick lace. Aroma of honey, spice with some alcohol. Complex flavor. sweet apricot, honey, spice. Dry bitterness. Good yeast profile. Very dinkable. Nice stuff.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Abbey beer since 1988, with a thick, sticky, cream white, dense head, relatively stable in relation to the ABV; colour warm orange blond, clear with hardly any visible fizz, hazy with deposit. Sweet fruity aroma of orange liqueur, pineapple, gin, overripe peaches, honey, cloves, rose petals, wodka, toasted bread. Sweet onset, candied orange, banana, mango, smooth and supple palate with medium carbo, minerals, fresh sourish touch, soft caramelly and bready malts, finish with a grassy hop bitterness but especially a strong, warming, gin-like alcohol effect which even becomes a bit wry. Would have been a lot better with better hidden alcohol and more hops, now the sweetness cloys a bit too much and the end is too alcoholic for my taste. Still a lot more ’honest’ than its Leffe or Grimbergen counterparts.

A malty and soothing aroma, with a nice colour and foam top. tinteling on the tongue, with a lovely bit of sweetness and alcohol.
