madsberg (10801) - SÝborg, DENMARK - JUN 4, 2004
Bottled: Dark golden coloured. Off white huge and lasting head. Spices, sweetness, fruit and malt in the aroma. NOtes of alcahol. Dry, light sweet fruityness in the flavour. Some spices and a special alcahol fatness Iíve not tried before. Finishes sweet and malty with a light alcaholbite.

rlgk (14164) - GŲteborg, SWEDEN - JUN 1, 2004
Hazy, small white head. Aroma lets you know that this is a strong beer, the alcohol comes through quite a lot. Flavor is fruity and malty, but also with some alcohol. Not as good as many other belgians.

jercraigs (8644) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 27, 2004
Slihly hazy amber orange body with a beautiful fluffy white head. Aroma is pleasant but distractingly alcoholic. Slighlty sweet malty flavour profile with slight hints of peppery spice and citrus, which are overrun by a strong alcoholic finish. A nice beer that could be much better with better disguised alcohol.

ukoolaid (576) - Amherst, Massachusetts, USA - MAY 22, 2004
UPDATED: OCT 15, 2005 Bottle. Hazy golden orange color. Aroma is flowery with soft fruit and alcohol. At first I served it way too cold, and the carbonation seemed too much. It eventually mellows and has a nice flowery/bready malt taste with a good amount of hops in the finish.

Nate (3827) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 22, 2004
Malty with notes of burnt toast, caramel, caramelized fruit, beets, sugar, and spices. Brilliant hazy amber (like butterscotch) with creamy lacing off-white head. Medium chewy body with medium-high carbonation. Silky. Starts sweet and sugary, with mild acidity and no bitterness. Fruity and sugary malts remain to finish, with musky grains and alcohol ending. Some bitterness comes along in aftertaste - a little drying, but for the most part, itís a sweet and carbonic mixture. Definite alcohol presence. Pretty complex flavor. A very nice beer.

mdi (573) - Nebraska, USA - MAY 18, 2004
BBD 11/2005. 33cl. I remember trying this one in Belgium, and was not struck by it, too much alcohol and not enough good flavor says my notes. Stateside: Gushed a bit, and poured with lots of yeast adrift. Bronze colored, had to force the head a bit, decent lace. Yeasty aroma, not getting malt or hops in the nose, smells a bit metallic or oxidized. Decent flavor, but rather short and simple with an alcoholic heat at the end(which I donít like much). Not bitter, but it burns and lingers. Besides the alcohol it would drink well(on the light side). Just not that interesting and at 10%ABV Iíd hope to be overrun with complexity. Iíd rather have a Duvel.

brewshthereen (316) - Oregon, USA - MAY 13, 2004
A friend brought this back from belgium for me and another buddy to try. I have not had it since, but it left an impression on me. Pours golden yellow with strong floral aroma. Yeasty and clean smelling. Large foamy head. Flavor is complex. Robust and delicious. Bananas, fruit, spices, citrus, tartness and did I mention yeast? This is a great tripel.

Yellow/golden in color with good head retention. Aroma is malty with a hint of spice and yeast. Sweet flavor with a crisp finish. Pretty tasty triple.

TheBeerGod (5592) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - MAY 2, 2004
UPDATED: MAY 3, 2004 No date on the cork on this one but the Best By Date is 16 01 06. Cloudy amber with splashes of red. Medium foamy white head. Aroma is spice, yeast, malt, fruit and candy sugar. Some flowery notes as well. Some citrus towards the end. There is an above average carbonation feeling to the palate. Finish is slightly dry. Good stuff!

MilkmanDan (1943) - Eagan, Minnesota, USA - MAY 2, 2004
Clear gold, big poofy head. Nose spicy, slightly metallic, mildly bready. Flavor is somewhat citrusy, mostly orange. Lots of candy sugars. Continues with the metallic notes, not really that pleasant. Yeasty and a bit lemony. Really donít like the metallic flavor on this one. May have to rerate later, as I may have gotten a less than spectacular bottle.
