This beer, with high fermentation, has a pale amber colour and a flowery, fruity taste with a harmonious balance between sweet and sour (8% alcohol content). This beer has a thick and vivid froth and strikes by its balanced taste with a delicate bitterness.

Poured a clear gold color with a moderate head that faded faster than I would have hoped for. Aroma is interesting with both fruit and sweet malt. Hops are very present in the aroma as well; flowers, herbs and cat pee. Upon tasting the beer has a sweet malt beginning that is followed by a robust bitterness and carbonic bite. Full bodied but not heavy enough to be lingering.

Bottle. Pour a light golden color with a frothy white head. Aroma of yeast, citrus and spices. Taste was musty and slightly bitter. Not nearly as smooth as the Abt 12.

UPDATED: AUG 27, 2007 Sampled from an 11.2 oz brown bottle this beer poured a pale golden color with a large yellow-white head. The aroma is tart, tangy and fruity. The flavor is sweet, tart and bready with hints of ripe fruits and a trace of spice. The finish is tart and reminiscent of sweettart candies.

Thanks to aspidites for this. I have to say that yes, I’ve had better triple’s. The nose was a little too soft for my liking, but what there was, was a bit fruity/lemony and sea salt. Mouthfeel was incredibly soft which I really enjoyed PLUS there was very little alcohol on the palate. Flavors were really subtle with sweet and fruity notes coming around. To say this was an average beer would be a travesty. It was very drinkable and enjoyable, but I just don’t think it was something to rave about.

Murky, gold body. Tall, white head that reduces to puddles. Yeasty aroma of tangy clove along with hints of bread and floral hops. Flavor starts sweet and ends slightly bitter. Spice, ripe fruit, raisins. Tart, dry finish. Smooth mouthfeel. Moderate carbonation. Medium body. Delicious but without any surprises.

From a 330mL Bottle. Pours a pale, cloudy off-lemon color with a tall head of whipped white froth. Soft, candi-laden vanilla aromas mingle with some mild mango and a dusting of nutmeg spice. Unique and subtly complex. Light bodied, crisply carbonated mouthfeel. A musty yeasty spice warms the tongue, bringing out some initial flavors of coconut husks and some nice clove spice. Some lighter malty tones provide a nice backing. The woody, dark spicy yeast characters really give this tripel some extra zip and a pleasingly complex flavor profile.

11.2 oz bottle. Poured hazy golden with a large off white head. Aroma is earthy, yeast, some fruits and spices. Taste is light (in color) fruits such as white grapes, pears, earthy and bready yeast, with some tartness and bitterness in the finish.
