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 :)

juiceisloose (1318) - Windermere, Florida, USA - JAN 13, 2008
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.

corked bottle...poured a nice pillowy head...good lacing...subtle litchi, citrus flavor...sharp, carbonated palate...similar to Gouden Carolus Tripel, with less coriander

SuperDave (1932) - Beautiful Sunny Mesa, Arizona, USA - JAN 11, 2008
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.

davhix (38) - Colorado, USA - JAN 11, 2008
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.

Dragonfly1 (500) - Colorado, USA - JAN 11, 2008
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.

tympanic (168) - New York, New York, USA - JAN 8, 2008
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.
