97 version. Pours hazy, dirty yellow. Minimal tan head. Nose has fruity yet estery aroma. Citrus notes and corriander. Flavor is of malt, candi sugar and apricots. Alcohol presence lingers in the finish.

Pours a cloudy golden color with a huge, frothy, diminishing white head. Very spicy (coriander) and yeasty aroma. Flavor of earthy yeast and citrus, bitter finish. Full body, oily and watery texture. A very standard tripel, does nothing special for me.

After the beer was opened foam made its way to the top of the bottle and began growing from it like one of those "snake fireworks"...poured a gold color with a monstrous white head that emitted grassy notes, some citrus and a touch of spice...Flavor was very wheaty almost yeasy like bread dough...Some citrus qualities as well...Very tingly mouthfeel...Alcohol somewhat present in the finish which gives a bit of a warming effect...NIce Tripel

caledonian (367) - Surrey, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 4, 2004
UPDATED: DEC 6, 2004 Blond with an insanely tall white head that starts bubbly but condenses to froth. Slightly cloudy. Aroma is kind of sour, with possible underlying pineapple/grapefruit/apple fruit salad notes. Some tangyness in the feel.

OKBeer (1171) - Halifax, Nova Scotia, CANADA - NOV 20, 2004
330 ml bottle. Hazy, very carbonated yellow gold colour with a huge frothy, creamy and rocky white head. Grassy, herbal, and lightly peppery and spicy aroma. Fruity, herbal, and lightly spicy with a perfumy alcohol bitter finish. Medium bodied, fizzy and creamy mouthfeel. Rather disappointing.

IPFreely (1470) - Sanborn, New York, USA - NOV 20, 2004
Hazy straw color, white head, huge ugly bubbles. Spicy, a little yeasty and a little grainy. That grainy finish is not very pleasant, either. Medium bodied. I was not impressed.

bombshelter (349) - San Francisco, California, USA - NOV 10, 2004
nice-sized head with slightly fruity/estery aroma, but not huge. flavor is not amazing....is smooth and sweet, but has an unpleasant bite on the end. alcohol is not readily apparent, despite being 7.5. bottle from the brewery in the triple petrus glass, but still doesn’t hit as high as it could.

Beer Snob (501) - Ontario, CANADA - NOV 10, 2004
Good, but a dissapointment. You figure that if it’s a Belgian and monks are involved and it’s a triple, then it’s going to be amazing. But, it’s good enough - a remarkably explosive head, nice citrus/ herbal aroma and a slightly sour aftertaste. But nothing exceptional here.

dirkules (629) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 8, 2004
Big carbonation and the frothiest white head I’ve come across in a beer in forever. bubbly pale yellow colour. Aroma of spice and citrus and rosemary. Great with pasta. Taste is dry apples, pears, champagne, perfumes and a ton of malts. Not too complex, a little unbalanced, and a little under rated.
