morri (206) - - JUL 14, 2013
330ml bottle from a German supermarket. Big, fluffy off-white head. Clear, dark golden body. Malty aroma dominated by dark fruits and a sweet floral aroma from the hops I also sense some caramel and burned wood. Very well balanced. Light and sweet when tasted, with a bitter finish. The alcohol is barely noticeable, even at 10% vol. Excellent palate. All in all a very good beer.

eduardovl (865) - SWITZERLAND - OCT 14, 2014
750ml bottle poured in a Leffe chalice. A: Pours a dark orange almost Amber colour with a big white and foamy head. Good retention and many lacings left S: Sweet, fruity and spice. Honey, caramel malts and belgian yeasts. Quite strong on alcohol in the end T: Caramel malts and Belgian yeasts are a must. Quite fruity too. Some honey. Balanced sweet-bitterness. Remarkable on personality. Once again, quite liquorous end M: Heavy, creamy and a bit molasses body. Medium to low carbonation O: Very decent Triple from a respectable brewery [ BA Review @ 11/14/2011 ]

"very solid tripel. bready, balanced aroma. a little citrus, fruity malt and yeast. solid feel, not overdone on the carbonation. almost soft, but full. one of the better tripels out there."

Joostvdveen (18) - NETHERLANDS - SEP 27, 2014
lichte geur beetje caramel, weinig co2, beetje vlakke smaak, alcohol iets meer dan normale tripels. beetje een grondsmaak, niet heel uitgesproken. lichte smaak rustige nasmaak.

MaBeer1972 (1342) - Taunton, Massachusetts, USA - SEP 26, 2014
Bottle from Julio’s. Poured into a snifter. A clear deep honey color with a frothy off-white head that settles to a thick lace. Aroma of honey, spice with some alcohol. Complex flavor. sweet apricot, honey, spice. Dry bitterness. Good yeast profile. Very dinkable. Nice stuff.

Alengrin (2065) - BELGIUM - SEP 20, 2014
Abbey beer since 1988, with a thick, sticky, cream white, dense head, relatively stable in relation to the ABV; colour warm orange blond, clear with hardly any visible fizz, hazy with deposit. Sweet fruity aroma of orange liqueur, pineapple, gin, overripe peaches, honey, cloves, rose petals, wodka, toasted bread. Sweet onset, candied orange, banana, mango, smooth and supple palate with medium carbo, minerals, fresh sourish touch, soft caramelly and bready malts, finish with a grassy hop bitterness but especially a strong, warming, gin-like alcohol effect which even becomes a bit wry. Would have been a lot better with better hidden alcohol and more hops, now the sweetness cloys a bit too much and the end is too alcoholic for my taste. Still a lot more ’honest’ than its Leffe or Grimbergen counterparts.
