2.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Blonde dorée voilée, effervescence moyenne-faible col fin blanc, belle dentelle sur le verre. Trop d’alcool et d’épices gâchent tout le reste: tant les malts clairs que les notes de bananes... A réessayer au cas où ma bouteille aurait été mauvaise, d’autant qu’elle n’est pas périmée!

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: SEP 6, 2013 (Bottle) A pretty good Triple , man the lame ones are like something that a bumb should drink on Skid Row .. When I find a good take on a triple , like this one , my mind recalls a ’ class A triple ’ like St Feuillien .I’m not one of those who hollas Westmalle as the epitome of style, never really liked it ... Drank this from a large Leffe goblet.. Reminds me of Coors light to look at , but doesnt drink down like Coors , nah !. sPiCy ,dry and toffee’ish ..booze covered over orange zest ... but the booze ain’t in an obvious kinda sick jet fuel texture like some in this style- its slick.. A good take on a triple for sure !

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pretty nice. 9%. Caramel and candy and lots of sweetness "belgian style" in both aroma and taste. Lots of character, and refreshing. A bit too carbonated, and I miss some aftertaste.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
nice cloudy looking, but not much head, which can not be expected on a 9% beer. To sweet and a bit unbalanced. to much alcohol in the aftertaste.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
By sheer coincidence I grabbed this bottle out of the fridge on its Best Before date, after sitting in the fridge for several months.
Presents an orange gold body with a big billowing white head leaving clumpy lace.
Rich malt aroma; white sugar, golden syrup, biscuity malt with ripe banana & stonefruit esters. Dried apricot and spices in the background.
Thick texture, creamy carbonation, spicy on finish.
Grainy malts on the body supported by plenty of sweetness. Flavours of very ripe apricot and peach. Booze sneaks through on a moderately bitter finish.
Pretty standard Tripel-style. Lacking the smoothness and complexity of great examples of the style.

330ml bottle from a German supermarket. Huge off-white head. Clear, golden body. Malty aroma with light hop bitterness. Very lively. The taste is pretty good and defined, but I don’t like the sweet aftertaste.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours out of the bottle in a unclear dark brown colour with low steady head and medium body. Nose of Belgian yeast and malt. Taste of Belgian yeast, nuts,woods,leaves, fresh hops and malt. Very lively and fresh finish. Enjoyed it a lot - a good, solid Belgian which is not too overloaded.
