3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a funky yellow with a hint of green (?) in it. Tight bubbled head disappates quickly. Nose is tart and yeasty. Flavor is much more balanced, with a sweetness showing through, followed by a citrus tartness and a malt finish.

Pretty much like the others say: a very nice tripel. Very well balanced!
Too much to add, too little to say :)

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a deep amber color with a thick bubbly white head that slowly faded away. It smelled of sweet citrus fruit, some malts, floral and spices. The flavor was much the same with citrus fruit and spices coming through mostly. There was a touch of candy sugar that left a hint of sweetness, but not as sweet as I was hoping for. Medium bodied with just the right amount of carbonation that finished with a little tartness. A very solid tripel.

Bottle. Pours a slightly cloudy amber color. White frothy head. Aroma is slightly sweet, with notes of fruits and a touch of spice. Relatively light, at least for 8 percent.

Pours a pale amber, with a medium frothy head. Aroma of fruit and spices, with some alcohol. Taste is good, but not great. Sour notes and alcohol were too lasting. Still a very solid beer.

750ml bottle. pale orange color with big soft pillow of a head that lasts forever. very nicely carbonated. lighter feel that some tripels, but very nice. it reminds me of another belgian tripel, but i canít figure out which one. guess iíll have to drink a bunch of them to remember.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
11.2 oz bottle. Amber orange hue. Not as frothy of a head as other tripels. Weiss-like aroma with dried fruit, citrus, and pronounced alcohol. Biting carbonation, touch of grapefruit (sour and bitter), boozy. This one was hard for me to rate- no single component of the beer stood out. Enjoyable.

Fizzy apple cider appearance and aroma. Poured from 11.2oz bottle. Soft and flavorful, hints of apple and pear. Slightly metallic aftertaste. Sticky, lasting layer of thin foam. An enjoyable tripel.
