Bottle: Deep orangey coloured, firm, small creamy head; fruity (oranges, orange peel) citrousy, a bit caramelly nose; sweet (fruity) and faint bitter flavour, creamy mouthfeel, quite full bodied; impressive fruity, a bit tart and bitter-sweet finish. A very pleasant night-cap !

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Well, it’s a style I really enjoy and this was one that was somewhat "hyped." But, I was kinda let down by Maredsous 10 and feel guilty for not liking it as much as others. But, the pour was boring (for the style), orange-yellow color with a thin white head that sustained itself well and provided decent lacing... but nothing overly impressive. The aroma was sweet and malty, of definite apples and bananas. Flavor was bananas, cloves, and even some candi-sugar. The finish had a nice hop touch to it along with a dryness. Mouthfeel was typical, of course also carbonated. A nice beer, but not in the same category as Chimay White or Karmeliet.

It has a cloudy dark-golden color with a white, foamy head. An aroma of honey wafts from the glass. This is a smooth beer, though the alcohol is evident. It has a slight nutty aftertaste.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Golden orange/amber color with large white head. LOADS of sticky webby lacing.
The nose is pretty much all alcohol. There’s a little of the expected yeast but the alcohol drowns everything out for the most part.
Sweet fruitiness, complemented by a very bready yeast flavor. It dries out in the end as it warms up thanks to the alcohol character in this one.
Fluffy feeling that thins out a little toward the end. A great tripel. Definitely recommended.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Poured a gold color with a firm lasting white head with good lacing. Aroma is of sweet fruits; banana and apricot are most prevalent. Flavor is a little disappointing, there is a bitterness combined with an astringency that mask what might be an enjoyable beer. A noticable hop flavor is there and seems terribly out of place. There are some candied fruit flavors hiding in the background but are overpowered.

Pours a nice golden amber color with a large egg shell golor head. Flavor is very fruity with a nice balance of malts. Aroma is some what yeasty and fruity as well. Has a nice warming effect as it goes down. Alcohol isnt hidden very well. Over all a nice brew indeed.

Golden body with a nice bubbly head. Banana aroma, typical of Belgian yeasts. Great body, smooth flow, taste is fruit intensive with some malts. Cool ending.
