Golden beer with a characteristically fresh bouquet and sweet after-taste.

Drew (2411) - Kent, Ohio, USA - NOV 24, 2004
Glowing orange bubbly body topped with a typically huge belgian head that leaves thick clinging lace. Sweet floral yeasty and spice aroma. Body is well carbonated, but soft; sweet malts, herbs, pepper, fruit. Light hops and dry at the end. Alcohol was well hidden.

Rastacouere (6153) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 21, 2004
750mL, 1yr old. Initially gushing, though not more than 100mL is lost. Body is hazy shining golden with orange hints. Beautiful color actually. Head is creamy, foamy, 1 inch tall and lasting. Lemon skin, leather particles and high level of yeastiness hits up the nose. Notes of light grassy hops, herbs, ginger, X cereals bread. Big hoppy suggestions in the mid-palate provide a rather big grassy and tart bitterness, but are quickly letting place to a peppery yeasty and sweet finish. Good apples, petals and honey flavors. Great alcohol disposition, always apparent in subtlety. Could be a bit mellower as a tripel though, this comes out sharp edged. Still very good and an obvious cousin to their Duvel, if not as elegant and sweeter.

DeepBlack (386) - Derby, Derbyshire, ENGLAND - NOV 9, 2004
Bought in the Bottle from the excellent "Beers of Europe" shop near Kings Lynn This is a strong, mid/light brown beer. With a strong taste but not to strong an Alcohol taste despite it’s 10%. Quite a dry aftertaste & reminisant of Duval.

jtw (1138) - farmington, Michigan, USA - NOV 5, 2004
very typical tripel. good beer, but not spectacular. somewhat light for a tripel, lots of alcohol presence. i wish it had a yeastier/spicier aroma and flavor to really make it a standout tripel, but it’s really just average. i will gladly drink it again, however....

Cornfield (5570) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - OCT 21, 2004
Very sweet aroma and a sticky sweet finish. In between, it poured a hazy orange with a solid head. It’s a warm drink with plenty of alcohol presence. Spicy and sweet... a lot of different flavors here.

maeib (8750) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - OCT 19, 2004
UPDATED: OCT 30, 2011 Bottled. A yeasty alcohol aroma with spices and banana notes. The colour is a hazy copper and there is a big white head, although this doesn’t last as long as its stable mate Duvel. The taste is gritty and peppery with warming spicy clove like alcohol. Nice stuff. Typical tripel. Score 3.7
Subsequent ratings scored 3.5 and 3.7. Average becomes 3.6

Enniskillen (2044) - Salinas, California, USA - OCT 19, 2004
Cider, alcohol, caramel, cookie dough aroma. Sweet with alcohol, the taste works well somehow, and the mouthfeel is great.

Thank God I found some Belgians in Portugal.Nice golden orange,creamy head.Fruity,malty nose and I would also say a spice note to it.Good combo of flavors as the fruit/spice turned out to be nicely done.Not unlike a spiced apple atr Christmas time.

rickgordon (3845) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - OCT 10, 2004
Bottled, Stockholm Beer Festival. Orange colour. Sugary and yeasty, a bit raw, probably too young. Smallish notes of fruits - lemon and apples. Big disappointment.

Crosling (1864) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - OCT 3, 2004
Sampled at Hall’s Beer Tavern in Paris, France. Light Brown. Lovely aroma. Sweet, like sugars, big caramel and other fruit notes, mainly lemon, herbs, apples and watermelon seeds. Front is mild, slightly spicy with notes of white peppers. Mid-palate is fruity with notes of cinnamon, apples and plums. On the finish the beer fades but then comes back and gives way to an exceptional finish with notes of nuts, toffee and cherries. Moorgat’s beers though not phenomenal, are usually pretty impressive, especially for such a large brewery.
