beikes (134) - Aarhus, DENMARK - FEB 13, 2014
Nice aroma, medium bodied with a long finish. My problem is just that I want the aftertaste to go away immediately. Too sweet for me and way too much a taste of cheap alcohol. Reminds me more than anything of a poor perfume gone bad. There are hundreds of other Abbey’s I’d drink before ever trying this again

Lubiere (9428) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 9, 2014
A golden blond Triple ale with a thin off white head. In aroma, pleasant perfumy malt with orange pulp, coriander, curacao, light grassy hops, very nice. In mouth, excellent caramel malt with candy sugar, good hops, bitter herbs, citrus pulp, coriander, alcohol warmth, very nice. Bottle at the brewery.

Aroma is bread, apple. Very good lacing. Taste is good dose of malt, sour fruits with a nice hop burst. Decent triple

Holmen2 (409) - NORWAY - FEB 6, 2014
Golden orange. Impressive white, foamy head and lacing. Sweet aroma of partly overripe fruits, with hints of spices and hops. More moderate taste, with a refreshing and lingering moderately bitter aftertaste. Very good drinkability.

Quintessential triple all the way around. Can definitely serve as a standard bearer for the style. Ever so slightly sweeter than I was expecting, but that is not a bad thing at all. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle at home. Golden brown with a thick creamy head that lasts well. Complex flavour with coriander and fruit underscored with an assertive bitterness. A very enjoyable beer.

33cl bottle at Lazy Louie. Clear amber with a medium white head. Medium body with light to moderate carbonation. Sweet with slightly bitter notes. Caramel, fruits, herbs and warmin alcohol. A decent Belgian brew.

ellolovey (427) - Georgia, USA - JAN 21, 2014
On tap. Pale clear yellow with thick frothy white head. Aroma of Belgian yeast, sweet fruits, and bubblegum. Love this. Light on the palate. Very refreshing and warms you up without noticing. Can’t believe the ABV on this one

Christian (10779) - Odense, DENMARK - JAN 20, 2014
On tap at Christian Firtal. Hazy dark golden with a lasting white head. Bright fruity aroma of peach and pineapple along with some cane sugar notes and a touch of alcohol. Sweet fruity flavour with some alcohol and a bit of hops in the finish.
