Rich golden colour, fruity aroma and a soft, sweet maltiness. Lively mouthfeel with a finish reminiscent of brut champagne. Brewed under license of the Duinen Monastery by the family owned Huyghe-Melle Brewery.

Hazy medium gold under yellowish beige, medium size, short lasting head. Startlingly big bubblegum, fruity and and honey aromatic hit fading quickly to a bready dough yeast and faint wood alcohol. Honey, fruit and sweet caramel malt balanced by plenty of bitter to make things interesting. End and finish are slightly soft and sweetish. Alcohol well masked but not all that memorable.

Nice hint of citrus in the aroma. Citrus comes through in the body and balances the alcohol well. Finishes a little dry. Each sip leaves you feeling like the show is over, but nothing got concluded.

Must have gotten a bad bottle. Powerful alcohol after taste, more sediment that I would normally expect. Ill have to try this again, after reading some of the other ratings.

Yuck! Light citrus and yeasty aroma. Pale orange, white frothy head, fair lace. Very soapy and alcohol bitterness. Long bitter finish.

PhillyBeer2112 (2525) - Oviedo, Florida, USA - JUN 19, 2002
Excellent tripel. Cloudy gold color with a med, fizzy white head. Strong aroma: malty, fruity, yeasty. Some hints at peach and pear. Flavor is strong and sweet, with plenty of yeast. Its fruity, with pungent spicy notes of clove. Full alcohol presence. Outstandingly quaffable - I drank the whole big bottle in one quick sitting.

VENOM (941) - Connecticut, USA - JUN 19, 2002
33cl bottle. Hazy amber/yellow with some sediment. Thin and sticky white head. Light carbonation. Quite the plethora of aromas. Notes of grapes, plums, pineapples, Granny Smith apples, musty yeast, star anise and nutmeg. Uh..OK. Initially light on the tongue with a spicy introduction. Light body. Soft yet spicy. Fruity/spicy alcohol bite and doughy sweet maltiness. Anise flavor builds in the aftertaste for a brief moment, alongside a yeasty flair. Light carob sweetness, almost yogurt like. Finishes a bit drier and spicier. This is a complex Trippel that requires your attention throughout.

Powerful aroma - very nice! Spices, coriander, pepper: theyre all there in the flavor in spades. Its a very peppery beer, Id say. Though Im not wild about it, this is a good, creative example of the Tripel style. Sourness (?) hinted at in the finish.

VA Homebrewer (525) - Portsmouth, Virginia, USA - APR 29, 2002
Signature tripel aroma of spice (pepper, coriander) and yeast. Hazy golden to copper color with a diminutive chalk white head. Malty, acidic and yeasty with a mild bitter and dry finish. Full flavored, acceptable body and a good tripel.
