Nice beer. Aroma is malty sweet and flowery with hints of fruitiness. Appearance isn’t anything special, just a regular amber color. Flavor is nice. Malty with a bitterish, citrusy flavor to it that’s very easy on the taste buds.

Thanks to Mark from the Keaton for supplying this baby!
Pour a yellow body with an orange hue. Head is huge, as with most tripels, and frothy and looks to be bleached white. Nice looking black sediment sitting in the bottom. Aromas are subtle. Apricots, some malts, citrus, rum. Slightly sour, and some citrus flavours are present. Peaches, and sweet malts too. Good. Finish is smooth and creamy, alcohol not detectable. Would have liked stronger flavour and aromas. Still a good example.

Bottle. Cloudy golden color. Very nice spicy armoa. A well balanced flavor of sweetness and bite. Fruity flavor almost covers up the taste of alcohol.

I am not a fan of Tripel’s so this review may not be too accurate. I was anxiously anticpating trying this beer after having had the ABT 12 (best beer in the world to me) and this beer was a major disappointment. It is not too good and for the price it leaves a lot to be desired.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: JUL 9, 2005 This became a saviour for me, the night before my wedding. An absolutely wonderful and defining Tripel. Poured into a tulip glass, a two-layered dense beige head formed atop an auburn-orange body. Poured the yeast pack in to give it a fine hazy glow, and preceded to take in the aroma. Intense smokey toffee and candi sugar sweetness dominated the low fruity esters, unusual nuttiness and alcohol and pepper spices. Similar in the mouth, sweet candi sugar was dominant, but balanced out with a mild peppery spice. Well rounded flavours of vanilla and yeast, citrus and floral hops, and nice alcohol warmth (no ethanol feel) made for a good complexity, yet smooth and creamy Tripel that was a pleasure to drink. Big flavoured in the mouth and long into the swallow.
