Aroma is very fruity..pear and apple stand out and impart an almost vinous aroma. Hazy yellow/gold in color with a large bubbly white head. Very fruity and yeasty. Creamy even. The fruit components are more of the apple with a dollop of sweet cream thrown in. Very nice.

4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Yeasty, vinegary aroma. Color is like that of a hot cider, head is about 3/4 inch of white foam. Tastes faintly friuty, hops are not very strong but still present, surprisingly smooth for a beer of this alcohol level. Alcohol flavor is barely noticable when compared with it’s cousin the Abt 12.

All in all an excellant beer, not as expensive as Rochefort Trappist Ale, so you can buy more. But, it is VERY good !!!!!

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
33 cl, smooth full-bodied tripel with surprisingly assertive bit of hops, and more than a little complex fruit character. Creamy and dangerously drinkable, I just can’t knock what these brewers do. Quite balanced and worth buying several of.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle - aroma is that of yeast. A touch of malt. Pure white head of creamy foam. Dirty gold with tons of suspended floaties ... have you ever seen that in a bad beer? Yeasty and fruity flavor. Not quite as complex as expected, but still nice. Full-bodied. A very nice brew!

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Cloudy orange colour with a fizzy white head. The nose is yeasty and candyish, sweet with a nice tropical fruit presence - mango. The body is strong with yeast, predominantly yeasty. A bit too yeasty for a tripel if you ask me.

bottle in france 33cl, can aquire in maryland. very sweet, not as carbonated as I would expect from a tripel, perhaps because I am use to sampleing tripels in the states where they have fermented more and lost sweetness.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Clear gold, poor head for a Belgian. Loads of candy in the aroma, spicy phenolics, vanilla custard, glue and perhaps lime rind. Pretty full-bodied and carbonation isn’t all that high. Tastes quite sweet and candy-ish, with a tiny bit of earthy, minty hop. Very drinkable but not that exciting. A bit too sweet for mine.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
A sweet and malty aroma with light carbonation. Golden and cloudy in body. Fruits and nuts are the primary tastes evident. Very plesant ending.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Clear golden color with a rocky white head. Flowery aroma with hints of malt. Light spice flavor with malty notes. Pairs very well with a sharp cheddar cheese, which will bring out the candy sugar in the flavor
