yespr (30913) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - DEC 14, 2007
33 cL bottle. Pours hazy orange and with fine yeast sediments floating around, has a lasting off-white head. Classic belgian yeast spiced aroma. Flavour holds a classic belgian spiced yeast flavour and with mild caramel malt base. Delicate yet faint compared to many other more flavourful belgian tripels.

Ungstrup (29224) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - AUG 14, 2003
UPDATED: DEC 25, 2004 [This rating is for the old 9% version] Hints of yeast in the aroma. A very dark beer that has a filling taste with hints of yeast and fruit. [The 7.5% version] An unclear orange beer with a fine head. The aroma is very sweet with an undistiguable powerful spice note and a weak note of black peber. The flavor is strond but flat yet the alcohol prickles even though it is just 7.5% ABV. In the middle it reminds me of flat wheat with notes of oranges and other fruits. It ends on a dry wheat note. The flavor is somewhat strange. It is definatly not as good as the Triple 9. This is not my beer. [6/4/5/4/11]

(Bottle 33 cl) First impression is bubbly. Bubbles everywhere actually - this is extremely carbonated. Deep orange colour, almost bronze with a huge frothy head. Lots of malt with a pleasant. dry fruityness in the palate. 301093

oh6gdx (20299) - Vasa, FINLAND - SEP 3, 2006
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.

omhper (19326) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - APR 17, 2003
Bottled. Amber coloured with rich, very lively head. Malt and some citrus in an unusually introvert aroma for a tripel. Soft mouthfeel and balanced sweetness together with a big, bready, chewy maltiness. Just a hint of coriander in an otherwise malt dominated finish.

Early amateur rating warning! An okay tripel but can’t hold a light to a Tripel Karmeliet.

fiulijn (14380) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 9, 2002
[4 years old bottle]
Hazy amber colour, thick yoghurt-like head. Dry aroma, malt, old hops. Smooth, well balanced, strong malt and bitterness, pretty strong palate. Doesn’t ages well, must try a fresh one.
