I did not like this at all. It was recommended at my beer store, but after having Ommegang earlier, this beer seemed simple and hoppy wih too much of a rubbing alcohol bite.

Like the spice and the not overly done alcohol flavor. Nice malt and an easy drink. Becoming more available and worth a try.

KingPinHead (390) - Des Moines, Washington, USA - SEP 8, 2002
Aroma is light, estery and yeasty--a little like bread dough...Color is a hazy peach-gold...head is not thick but is dense with cracks as in pack sea-ice---clingy lace...Taste features healthy sweet malt base with a candied-fruit quality offset by light but sharp hopping and healthy carbonation---quite effervescent...Finish tastes slightly of cinnamon...Full-bodied brew, again buoyed by the carbonation, which helps make this surprisingly refreshing...Overall, this reminds me of a refined fruit cider...It lacks some complexity in its profile, but is still a very tasty, fruity, and spritely tripple.

This is a decent brew that was a little too flowery for the thin=ckness of the brew.

softale (188) - Michigan, USA - AUG 24, 2002
This beer is the definition of golden. Nose is floral and fruity with some spicy clove notes. Starts slightly sweet and ends with a little bite. The alcohol is more apparent than with other tripels. Good but nothing really outstanding.

Kåstå (1273) - Mol, BELGIUM - AUG 21, 2002
Dark blond with a big head. Flowery hop aroma. Sweetish start that lasts. It is a nice beer.

estoppel (1028) - Buffalo, New York, USA - AUG 10, 2002
Big rocky head, golden color, slightly hazy with yeast. Typical fruity/spicy tripel nose. Rather soft sweet fruity start with a spicy finish. Alcohol comes through just a bit. Not bad at all.

UPDATED: MAR 18, 2005 Great Belgian ale! Very natural taste not too complex a little yeasty but not overbearing. Recommended

While i love the maredsous 8, this one here fell short of expectation. Golden color, some spice, some fruitiness, alcohol and fiziness. Not great.
