Bottle. Poured a great lemon-orange with some sedimentation visible in the pouring. Thick, dense, foamy head with a lot of lacing. Scents of lemon, yeast, some nutmeg. It does have a bit of a watery mouthfeel however it has a great balance of hops and malt. Very smooth and enjoyable.

On tap at Belgobaren (Sthlm). Pale colour, clear (yes, my notes say clear, in contradiction to most reviews here.. I’m confused too...) Malty aroma, sweet esters. Sadly, I found this a bit thin on the palate and lacking in complexity. Wouldn’t mind a second sampling..

jhumphries69 (1034) - Tyrone, Georgia, USA - AUG 18, 2006
UPDATED: DEC 9, 2006 Pours deep, cloudy gold with thick, nearly-white head. Aroma is sweet, a little grassy, green raisins, clover honey, and alcohol. The flavor is fruity, very malty, some funky yeast flavors, and a touch earthy hops. Sweet in the beginning, like honey-glazed dried fruits in the middle, and dry finish. The mouthfeel is a bit thin for a beer of this strength and very strongly carbonated.

A pale triple with a very nice head. Good balance between malt sweetness and hops.

Man,this is no where the 12, not even close. Too bubbly for me but the flavor was just a bunch of mish mash for flavors,a bit of spice but more just like stale beer.

Bottle - Liked the Prior 8 so gave this one a shot.. Pours an almost hazy orange color with a small white head... aroma of yeast and spices.. flavor is a wonderful fruitiness with a moderate carbonation which makes it all the better.. dry finish... nice tripel

Bottle. Fantastic beer! Pours a golden, cloudy brown like a fresh cider. Heavy head reduced to lumpy clouds of foam. Aroma is yeasty with spicy highlights. Taste is amazing. Smooth on the front of the tongue, spicy in the middle, then malty and slightly sweet on the back. Alcohol aftertaste is warm and pleasant, not overwhelming. A second aftertaste is a tenderly sweet reminder that hits 30 seconds after the first taste. Just a wonderful beer.

11.2oz, Best before end 13 04 09. Pours a hazy golden with a mod-large white head. Aroma is some citrus, dust, candy sugar, toffee, yeast, and maybe a tiny bit of alcohol. Taste is more tart and alcohol is more present, though otherwise the flavors are the same as the aroma. Lightly bitter dry finish.. Medium bodied, mod-high carbonation. Not my favorite tripel, but still a solid brew.

A nice beer to take your time with. This is the first beer from this brewery I have tried and I am definitly impressed. I could taste the alcahol but it was still relatively smooth
