4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
75cl bottle, 131484 on cork. Wonderous gold color w/ all kinds of bubbles floating, great lace, head a little lacking. orange, lemon, fruity nose, vanilla, malt...Very elegant sweet/spicy beer. body is perfect, not heavy at all, but vibrant and sexy. Finish fades into spice mud with hop accents. Solid beer, drinks like a feather: easy. SPicing is apparent, but mysterious and not overdone. Iím impressed.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours an amber color with copious co2 and a full, rocky, white head. Aroma is fruity, fresh and lightly grassy with a malt background. Flavor is sweet at the start with a yeasty bite at the finish. A metallic flavor lingers when it is colder, but dwindles as it warms. Palate is lively with plenty of co2, medium bodied, lightly creamy, yet crisp. Looks like a tripel, smells like a tripel, tastes like a tripelÖ I enjoyed this beer, yet did not fall in love as I was expecting. It has the right idea, but does not pull off the complexity or the balance of a great tripel.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours golden orange with a tight head. Simple light citrus aroma, with dusty pleasant yeast on the palate. Hint of florals, citrus in aftertaste as well. A good, slightly above average bottle-conditioned triple. Would try again.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pale and golden with an unimpressive white head. Nice floral, spicy aroma with some candi sugar and mineral smell. Spritzy and dry for a Tripel. Good body and a bit of finishing bitterness. Some herbal flavors. Recommended. In general I prefer a Tripel that has a creamier and less sharp quality to it, though.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
A slightly hazy Orange tinted beer with a light beige head. Corriander & bubblegum with a lemon twist. Sweet & fruity with a slight spice flavor, a hoppy herbalicious follow. Very good but a bit fizzy. Similar to the Moinette Blonde I just had.

3.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
75 cl corked bottle; hazy orange color with good head aroma is wonderfully sweet and acidic, and kicks you in the head like a huge back of fresh fruit jelly
taste is unusually bitter (for a belgian ale) with a little bit of unpleasant sharp/salty bitterness, some hints of licorice (saaz?) Champagne like carbonation

4.5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Poured from a 9 Liter bottle into a tulip glass. The beer was a nice yellowed orange color with a good 2 fingers of head that fell to coat the beer. The nose was my favorite part of this beer. Banana, peppery spice, pineapple. Divine. The flavor was a nice creamy banana spiked with lemon and pepper. Very nice. The feel was a bit creamy and moderate. Drinkability was also good. Smooth and very refreshing beer. I look forward to my next graduation. I will be getting a 9L of this to celebrate!

UPDATED: DEC 26, 2004 I like this beer. However there is a bit too much of an orange juice taste in this beer. I donít mind it. There is just too much of it. The bitterness and the aroma were very nice. Iíll have to try this in one of the big bottles with the cork. Beers are usually much better that way.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from CaptainCougar. On opening the carbonation rushed to escape. After waiting abaout a minute the pour suprisingly isnít all head. Hazy orangish color. White head, modest lacing. Very fruity and yeasty in aroma, some hints of spice also. Very well carbonated, dances on the palate. Medium bodied. Peppery tingles, fruit and yeast in flavor. A pretty tasty triple.
