[75 cl bottle] Golden, hazy colour. Huge head. Fruity, yeasty aroma with notes of citrus. Tastes pretty much as it smells. Very easy drinking.

daalamar (405) - new albany, Indiana, USA - SEP 8, 2006
Pours a golden/amber color with a medium lasting head. Big fruity aroma, sweet flowers and maybe some honey. Flavor is sweet and malty with a kick of yeast and spice in the finish. Overall a good beer but there are better out there.

Augustijn55 (82) - Izegem, BELGIUM - SEP 7, 2006
Golden colored with a thin white head that maintains ’til the end. Sharp, woody carb melts away leaving a yeasty banana. Wonderful stuff! This hits all the right notes. Sweet fruit never overpowers. Balance is perfect with refreshing carb giving way to sherbet smoothness.

bfeldmann (1049) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - SEP 6, 2006
Poured a cloudy amber color. Aroma was frutiy/yeasts and spices. Flavor was much the same with a flavor that i couldn’t pick out that wasn’t good. Good beer but have had better tripels.

nhorween (645) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - SEP 4, 2006
UPDATED: OCT 23, 2007 Bottle, side by side with Mad Bitch, and this is better. Bright honey color with a white head and good retention. Nose is yeasty, mildly sweet, clean, fresh. Flavor is balanced and nothing is overly pronounced. Silky and smooth with great carbonation. A very good tripel, balanced and delicious.

DarkMagus (472) - San Diego, California, USA - SEP 4, 2006
This brew poured a nice dark golden color...initially fairly clear but became quite hazy with the addition of the sediment on the bottom of the bottle. A very modest and well-balanced aroma of yeast, malts, some subtle hops, citrus, and a general fruitiness. Flavors were similarly well-balanced: yeast, malts, hops, fruits (citrus, green apple)... it all comes together perfectly. The texture of this beer is strangely velvety and soft--it seems to almost turn to a very fine foam when in the mouth. Overall an amazing, possibly archetypal example of the style.

12 oz. bottle Aroma: I was a bit stuffed up during this tasting so the scent was difficult for me to accurately determine. What did come through was yeasty, wheat with fruity banana and apple with a nice hop scent. Appearance: Hazy golden orange with small to medium bodied sediment floating throughout the beer. For some this might be a turnoff but for me it just makes it interesting. The head was a bright white in color that sustained somewhat throughout the glass. Flavor: Quite yummy sweet yeast with the fruits again coming through nicely balanced with the hops. Palate: Fnished nicely with a medium body and some bite along the roof of my mouth. Not bitter or overly sweet either. Balance is an important theme with this brew. Overall: A truly quality Belgium Tripel. This is one that you can use as a standard bearer for the style.

Bottled. Hazy honeyish golden colour, mediumsized white foamy head. Aroma is fruity, a bit spicy and aa bit hoppy. Smoother than many other tripels. Flavour was very smooth caramel, fruits, spices and hops. Very nice palate, and one of the best balanced beers I have had in a long time.

orange/golden color with a small white head. aroma is fruity, spicey, sweet, and sour with a nice hop backbone. typical tripel nose, but balance is just right on this one. palate is grassy, lemony, malty and hops. tasty.

Cloudy honey colored with a thin white head that maintains ’til the end. Sharp, woody carb melts away leaving a yeasty banana. Wonderful stuff! This hits all the right notes. Sweet fruit never overpowers. Balance is perfect with refreshing carb giving way to sherbet smoothness.
