Aroma of fruit and yeast. Pours a clear gold with a white ring head and marginal lacing. The taste is elegantly sweet. Fruit, vinous with a little alcohol in the finish. Medium body with smooth carbonation. Very smooth, velvety. Overall, an amazing triple.

4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Excellent Tripel, had this at the local Staminee de Garre in Brugge. There are so many pleasing qualities about this beer - the aroma, the color, the glorious head...but, for me the thing that makes this beer stand out over others, not unlike the Westy XII, is the mouth feel. Very 3D, the carbonation is sublimely tight and airy and the thick head mixes perfectly with the sweeter, creamy liquid as one drinks. I highly recommend ordering one in Brugge if possible - Iíve had this beer served in other locations (in the US) and it really does pale in comparison to the beer poured out of the wooden barrel at Staminee de Garre. Made by the fine folks who also brew the Tripel Karmeliet just a few km from Brugge.

1.7 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 3/20
Tap at Iron Horse tap room. Pours clear, low haze perhaps bright golden. Larger white foam. Decent lace. Nose is dms, broccoli, sauerkraut, nasty garbage. Fermenting banana peels and compost. Some fusel notes. Taste is spicy pear, chalk, astringent paper. Acrid palate. Stale keg perhaps. Yuck. Boo this beer style.

Had this on tap at Cafe Bruges, Carslile Pa. It was a nice and strong tripel, not too sweet. This stood out from the many beers that night.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Drank this as Waagstuck ages ago. Cloudy yellow, offwhite creamy head amplified by the tulip glass. Fruity, slight belgian funk - dry yeasty. Peach, melon, apple, slight cheese. Oily mouthfeel. Denies its strength while drinking, powerfull later on.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 11/20
Just like a tripel but a little creamy. Hazy dark orange color. Weak white head. Aroma... canít smell it. Flavor... creamy Belgian yeast. Ok, I guess... but not really.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a hazy golden, orange with a massive white head, aroma is spicy, floral perfume, under ripe bananas alcohol is present but not offensively, taste is initially sweet, but soon taken over by the sourness, nice dry finish.
The mystique and exclusivity does add an extra aspect to this beer, but it's still a lovely beer in its own right.
