330mL bottle. Big, frothy, long-lasting head leaves a fair amount of lacing. Hazy amber...looks quite nice in the Maredsous glass I obtained from the gift pack. Strong yeast aroma, banana, clove. Spicy, smooth, finish is moderately hoppy with a warm alcohol touch.

Cloudy yellow in the glass with a very thin head. Aroma of appleas, oak, sweet and fruit. Very warming with clove, bananna, vanilla and a little citrus.

DrGonzo (625) - Somerville, Massachusetts, USA - FEB 23, 2004
Hazy orange and average white head, mostly small bubbles. Some yeast and vanilla in the aroma, plus apple. A full bodied triple, loads of malt, very sweet with plenty of vanilla. Lacking a bit in spice, somewhat one dimensional. This used to be my favorite style, but now I just find this to be too sweet for tastes. Even still, this is a good triple, big for the style (like Golden Monkey), lacking a bit in subtlety though.

ante (3374) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - FEB 23, 2004
Nice orange colour with thick white head. Yeasty aroma of apples, sugar, citrus and alcohol. Flavour of yeast, citrus and oranges. Quite alcoholic finish.

Zach Diesel (906) - Portland, Oregon, USA - FEB 16, 2004
creamy orange citrus aroma, light orange with a tight head, orange creaminess with notes of candi sugar and a bitter finish

Slick (1969) - Thief River Falls, Minnesota, USA - FEB 12, 2004
Orange/brown color,lots of small yeasties suspended throughout this brew.The head was foamy white and short lived but managed to leave a decent lace behind.The aroma was Fruity and sweet with a slight sourish side,citrusy and floral as hell.Nice malt taste then fruit comes on in a nice way,citrusy and mildly spicy with a decent fruity sweet after taste.The finish is nicely done and highly drinkable with the alcohol being hardly noticeable.Very much well worth trying this brew if you can.

Great aroma, very smooth feel and a great taste. To look at this one in the glass was to look upon another wonderful belgian beer.

UPDATED: DEC 11, 2010 Feb, 2004 Bottle Conditioned. BBE 05/05 Full bodied and quite pleasant. Alcohol is evident, but not overpowering. The sweetness is restrained and balanced with a wheaty spice. A quality beer that just doesnít do much. [3.1]
Dec, 2010 Bottle from MonoPrix, Paris. Yeasty, sweet, some sharp tingle, almost sour, good malty sweetness. This is a fairly typical strong pale ale with a robust yeast. There is an awareness of alcohol about it. Once you discover how easy it is to brew this stuff at home, your admiration for it diminishes. You either like these yeasty strong pale ales, or you love them. I quite like them, but Iím rarely overwhelmed. This is a fairly straightforward example. It gets you pissed, and itís inoffensive. [3.3]

Syd (920) - Waconia, Minnesota, USA - FEB 7, 2004
Bottle pours a hazy burnt orange amber with a small head for a Tripel and lace sheets. The aroma is bread like yeasty, slightly fruity, and a touch of Belgian spice notes. The flavor is banana sweetness, bread like yeast, a hint of vanilla, pretty warming and peppery - but not bad for a 10% ABV and just very smooth! The body is rich with a cleansing palate sensation. This beer is a sensation. I like it very well.

JPDIPSO (4956) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 6, 2004
Honey color with scads of white swinkles in the final pour. Tall light white head with chunks of lace. Heavy aromas of stewed apples and raisins. Musty wine alcohol also in the nose. Yeast laden sweet malt from the first time the liquid hit the lips. Smooth with a light spritzy bite. Finish is very light and really does not call one back. Floral hops preasent in the middle and a mild hops bitterness and acidity. Alcohol bite is a bit strong in this one. Seem like an abbey malt liqour.
