3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Ecrvich’s review probably says it all. In my words: Hazy yellow brown with irregular 2-3 mm size flakes. Nice large fluffly chunky light tan head that dissipated fairly quickly to a central frothy lump. Large malty doughy and less fruity yeasty aroma and some spices. Medium body and reasonably smooth feel in mouth. After all this I found the flavour somewhat disappointing. Strange short largerish/sour start followed by a generous malty and faint bitter middle and a light bitter and alcohol finish. Still a nice triple - especially if they got rid of the lumps.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: JAN 20, 2003 Head is initially large, frothy, white, mostly lasting. Body is hazy medium yellow, dense tiny/small/medium particles, bottle conditioned.
Aroma is moderately yeasty (mold, cobwebs), lightly malty (cookie), lightly hoppy (flowers), with notes of orange and clove, hint of alcohol. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Medium body, velvety texture, lively carbonation, lightly alcoholic. Very soft/airy/fluffy but non-fizzy mouthfeel...hence "velvety".

The size of the yeasties floating around in this beer was suprising. Almost made me wonder if I should drink, but of course I did. Nice sweet aroma and flavor. Nothing spectacular, but a good trippel nevertheless. Alcohol was barely noticeable. Very drinkable.

An appetizing triple. Nice honey and banana notes, with a decent yeasty bite (sourness). Aroma of alcohol and pears. Overall a very enjoyable and drinkable triple.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Cotton candy and apple aroma accompany this sweet, alcoholic, sugar-plum, and banana flavored brew. Quite complex with a sour, puckering finish and large, coarse bubbles. Quite yummy.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: AUG 15, 2005 pours a slightly hazy bronze colour with a solid creamy white head which leaves a beautiful lacing; tons of yeast sediments at the bottom of the bottle; big nose of peach with notes of bread, a creamy mouthfeel, low carbonation and a soft mouthfeel; long aftertaste of fruits (apricot, peach) and some residual sweetness - a good quality beer

What Budweiser should be. After drinking Piraat, Corsendonk Pale and Delirium Tremens, this just didn’t cut it. It was very smooth, very drinkable. Basically something you could drink forever. Something that would kick you in the a**. Delicate flavor, but not something I enjoyed much at the time. #4 out of those 4.
