2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pour is a murky yellow with a small white head. Aroma is faint fruity esters and not much else. Flavor is a little fruit but mostly its just a dull malt. This may be one of the worst triples Iíve had from Belgium. Flavorless and boring.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Brown 33cl stubby bottle, poured into a Westmalle Chalice. I allowed some of the sediment (by mistake) to enter the glass, so the beer took on a slightly hazy look. Old orange peel colour with a crisp white foaming head.
A sweetish aroma, apple pie with a caramel crust, mixed with yeast and grapefruit esters, nice!
Its best before date was 7th Apr 2012, so it was very fresh when reviewed (4th Nov 2009). It was spritzy and tart, young and refreshing, ageing could well mellow the beer, who knows? The taste was an agreeable blend of what a tripel should taste of; good quality hops, barley and yeasts, brewed in that Belgian way no one else on earth can quiet manage.
Considering it has 7.5%ABV within, it didnít seem to carry an alcoholic kick, you could detect the strenght but it didnít creep up on you like some tripels Iíve had, nor did it protrude out like a pointed stick.
Very easy to drink and put me in the mood for more beers, sadly I had things to do.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
An ester filled nose of citrus, cider, white grapes and yeast. Cascading fine suspension flows against rising co2. Flavor is sweet too tart - very sugary. Medium body with a finish that flushes and dries, in that order. Overall a nice Belgian ale, though not outstanding. Import by Twelve Percent.
