UPDATED: NOV 9, 2010 11.2oz bottle - BBD code: b/D/12. Poured a clear copper with particles - head was a medium off-white, thin layer stays to the end. Aroma: strong yeast up front, notes of ripe fruit, malt, alcohol, spice, notes of banana. Taste was the same but with a touch more alcohol. The yeast is very much like that used for Gouden Carolus Tripel (but with less spice). Medium body. Finish was ok with a mild bite of bitterness. Overall: good/average.

Had this far too late in the evening some where in Belgium. Need to have a do-over. Sweet, spiced, yummy. Serving: Bottle maybe tap

Yellow in color with a two-finger white head. Citrus, lemon, and spicy yeast aroma. Kind of a dry flavor. I like my tripels sweeter but this is still tasty. Good balance between sweetness and bitterness. Bit too light for me.

On tap; Halve Mann. Pours an amber, reddish color. Great taste; very smooth easy drinking beer. I really enjoyed this one (more than I expected).

Pour is a copper with tons of floaties, wow this is the most I have ever seen in a single beer, and a huge white head. Aroma is sweet with some apple and yeast. Flavor is citrus and vanilla with some alcohol at the end. Decent triple with a ton of floaties.

Slightly hazy amber color, small off-white head. Aroma has apricot and green apple, hints of alcohol. Medium to full bodied. Fruity flavor: apricot, peach, some overriped banana, light alcohol bitterness in the finish. Smooth and balanced, fruity tripel.

Bottle. Light amber color. Dried citrusfruit in the aroma. Sweet, almost sugary, somewhat yeasty and alcoholic flavor. Some citrus notes. Slightly herbal and not unpleasant.

We bought this without knowing how truly expensive it was. Fortunately it’s a DAMN good beer. Classically Belgian in all aspects and near perfect in all.
