pivo (2586) - GERMANY - MAR 22, 2003
Beautiful nose - yeasty, apricots. Deep gold color and a tall fluffy head. Orangy maltiness predominates the fairly long flavor profile. A kinda nutty finish (cashews?). Full body, rather complex and well-balanced.

CapFlu (4615) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 18, 2003
(Bottle) Orange amber colour with a fair sized white head. Spiced raisins, alcohol nose. Flavours of raisins and spice. Surprizingly no alcohol bur from the high ABV. I found it to be much like 1837 very mellow finish. Alcohol hidden very well!

Smells better than 8%. A lighter look as well. Its flavor rox. Some of my friends like to give a mild shake to stir up the bottom good stuff.. I would luv to try it on tap

Pabobcat (15) - Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 9, 2003
Heavy carbonation,a note of floral and spice and sugar starts ends with a slight alcohol burn. Bottle conditioned hopefully age will do it well!

Voivod (304) - Como, ITALY - MAR 1, 2003
Amber colour, good head, thin but persistent. Peaches and apple in the aroma. Well balanced sweetness in the flavour, with fruity (peach again) and yeasty traces. Light hoppy finish. Nice tripel.

Clear bronzlor with a light head turning to atmosperic lacing..Bready/yeast applie pie aroma..Fizzy carbination greets the tongue as yeasty apple flavors swim around...Basic yeasty triple.

amx1970390 (480) - Southampton, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 20, 2003
Massive "tripel" head of large bubbled foam. Aroma of yeast and dried flowers. You can tell by the slow bubble rise that this is a thick beer. Colors is a little more orange than most tripels I have sampled. Flavor is sweet malts upfront with a earthy finish. Very thick feel in the mouth with carbonation tickling the tounge. Very good, best described as a heavy tripel.

Again, I've decided to a vertical test. But I'm presented with a problem: my old bottle not only has no BBdate, is supposed to be brewed at Denée (were the monastery is) and is called Brassin du Centenaire/Eeuwfeestbrouwsel. That was a more fancy name than the down-to-earth 'Tripel 10'! The points above are from the newer version. Colour: 10: pale orangey-amber; thick head, slightly yellowish, slowly collapsing/ Cent: dark chestnut, disparate head with thick, lonely bubbles, no carbonation [4/5] Nose: 10: first some fresh summer weeds, then coloured malt/ Cent: portwine, walnuts, cardboard and maple syrup [9/10] Taste: 10: bone-dry, candi-sugar flavour, a bit of orange rind/ Cent: Alcohol by Jove, and higher alcohols as well. Very vineous, oily even. Retronasal explosion of very ripe, sugared fruits. [9/10] Mouthfeel: 10: unlike the dryness suggests, very full-bodied. After a few sips, a bitterness creeps in, slowly building up in the back of the mouth/ Cent: rather thin-bodied, but alcohols and oilyness. All that fruit takes some time to dissipate [5/5] Overall: 10: DAMN, another Westmalle tripel copy. Technically perfect, interest pffft/ Cent: WOW [18/20] No doubt - I've tasted two totally different beers, even when they are or were top of the same range. And by all what's holy, I preferred the 'Centenaire'!!

A fine brew which I enjoyed with Dasilky1 and Drunkasaskunk, lots of carbonation and head. Powerful fuel like alcohol quality. Hops are blended well with the flavorful fruits which cometogether for a nice finish. Yet another solid brew I have had the pleasure of enjoying.

DrunkAsASkunk (847) - Lynnwood, Washington, USA - FEB 19, 2003
DaSilky1 was ever so gracious to split a bottle of this between myself and 21iceman40. This one poured an orangey/peach color with a massive white head. The aroma was strongly dominated by alcohol, fruitiness, citrus and yeast. The taste was a mix of a bittering yeasty front followed by a malty fruity mix of peach, orange, malt and sugar almost. Very sweet, but yet mildly dry ending, not overwhelming by any means. Citrusy tartness from the hops attack the palate in the beginning and give way to a nice malty ending. The bittering is a bit much here as is the yeast. The sweetening malt is what saves this beer from being below average.
