3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Golden color; nice thin perlage; thick head, big. The classic aroma for a Tripel, the taste is in the beginning not so special, but revealing later some malt (still dry mouthfeel) and a good hopping. In the final, the bitterness is long, bearing some Belgian hop aromas as well.

Bottled (on Nov 30th, 2005) Clear, orange body. Off-white head. Aroma of hops, oranges, soap. Moderately bitter initial flavour. Lightly sweet, moderately bitter finish. Quite alcoholic flavour. Fully bodied. Due to the alcoholic flavour, I don’t like this.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
33 cl bottle, bottled on 30th Nov 05. Deep orange coloured and sprinkled with a lot of petite sediment particles, it displays a coarse, mostly diminishing head with a nice lace. The aroma is hoppy and fruity with fennel and sulphurish notes. Round and juicy taste, with retronasally hop oils. A blunt punch of sweetness in the middle, followed by a soft hoppy flavour. Solid and spritzy palate.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: JUL 29, 2007 (Bottled, the blond version of "Pater Van Damme", 7-4-7-4-15=3.7) Hazy golden amber with a smallish, but firm and lacy, white head. Aroma of slightly sweet, honeyish malt - with hints of grainy rye and yeasty alcohol. Pretty malty and smooth flavor with mellow lemony fruitiness, mild acidity and well-hidden alcohol. Even smoother with yeast poured in, but not that complex. Medium to full-bodied, soft-carbonated palate. Smooth, balanced and enjoyable. My best guess would be, that this is actually the Sint Canarus Tripel.
(Bottled) amber color with a very small head. Fruity, berryish aroma with nice grassy hopping in the background, and some mushroom hints. Very toffeeish, hoppy flavor with lots of fruit. Medium-bodied, quite refreshing, but not thin palate with balanced carbonation. An excellent, tasty and balanced, very fruity-berryish tripel. Even the faint cardboard hints won’t hide its excellence - quality stuff!
