3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Cloudy orange pour with a huge bubbly head which settles nicely. Aroma primarily yeast with some masked citrus. Taste is rather good. Very spicy with some cloves and has a nice maltiness to back it up. Good body with active carbonation on the palette. Excellent dry finish. I really like this one... the fruit and citrus in this beer really put it a notch above. I hate beers that are overly yeasty, this one is just right... this is a nice tripel.

Bottle from Beers of Europe. As lively as a lively thing. Very hazy yellowy/orange colour. Head measured in inches, off-white and rocky looking. Aroma is citrus and light spices. Great taste; sweet, spicey and dry, malty and buttery. Great on the palate, smooth and full bodied. Class.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Its aroma indicates a very filling beer, and this is confirmed by its taste. This is a beer you want to enjoy slowly, tasting every drop. Dark orange colour. Strong on alcohol and yet very smooth. A beer for all seasons!

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Appearance: perfectly opaque orangey color, with a fine, white head atop.
Aroma: full of soft spices, orange peel, lemon rind, spicy, citrusy, yeasty, full, magnificent.
Taste: excellent entry on the tongue & palate, beautiful, yeasty, rich and fruity.
Soft, yet earthy, hoppy, full-bodies, and delicious.
An excellent tripel, for the sugary aspect was much more subdued than other offerings which misinterpreted, perhaps, the portions of the sweetness in the style. Seemed nothing more, or less, than perfect, without being mindblowing.
Very, very worthwhile brew.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle @ ōlbaren, Copenhagen. Pours a nice orange body with a small white head. You can see the yeast chunks flaoting around in the beer. The aroma is quite spicy, some yeast, good sweetness and fruityness. Flavor is very spiced, rather dry, sweet, but a bit too one dimensional. Decent tripel, i honestly dont find them very good.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a cloudy golden color, big white head that lasts for a while and then settles down into a nice thin layer with some good lacing. Iím having trouble picking out anything special in the aroma, just regular yeast and some slight spicyiness. Nicely hopped finish, and all around very decent, but not among the best tripels Iíve had.

I ran across this one at the local liquor store and decided to give it a try. Best when poured into a brandy snifter. Cloudy golden color with a sweet aroma. Definitely has a citrus taste. The alcohol is greatly disguised by the flavor and aftertaste. A real enjoyable Belgian ale.

3 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Straw to a hazey bronze in color, with a short lived, but nice head. Has an OK nose, but is nothing to write home about. If I where forced to pick out this beers best quality it would be itís long finsih. A taste that last until the next drink is down the gullet. Overall, an enjoyable beer that I will drink again.
