3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap. Yeasty earthy aroma. Light gold with barely a head. The flavor is sweet and sour with a typical Belgian yeasty flavor. Hints of fruit and spice round out the complex flavor. Medium to light bodied with an average carbonation. A very good Tripel that is incredible light and smooth for its alcohol content.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
I’ve been eying this one for a while now and finally decided to try it out. Has a nice foggy light golden color. Smell is full of malty hops. Hints of barley, yeast, and citrus. Has a citrus and malt flavor. Not too carbonated. Some yeast in the flavor. A little bite in the end that is nothing else but pleasant. Overall this was a good choice.

4.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
33cl bottle into tulip glass. A cloudy golden ale with a decent white head and nice lacing. Spicy warming yeasty aromas with orange peel predominating. Full bodied with complex flavours of honey malt, oranges and spicy/perfume hops with a very satisfying dry bitterness to the finish. Very well integrated with a smooth drinkability despite the ABV. I have not tasted a better Belgian Abbey ale than this.

On tap @ Deluxe. Pour was gold with 2 fingers of a nice white head. The aroma is that of an orchard plentiful in apples, strawberry, and some citrus. The taste starts off with a lot of fruit and follows through with a nice spicy/yeasty finish. Overall mouthfeel is pretty light but not flimsy. A very easy drinking beer and quite refreshing!

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Tasted 4/1/09. 750ml bottle. The first pour was relatively clear with a golden hue. Layer of white head. Aromas of apples, melons and citrus. Belgian candy sugar yeast and pepper. Medium to full bodied with bright effervescence and big citrus notes. Candy, chalky and perfumy. This is how a tripel should taste! Peppery with a faint cherry nuance. The second glass was activared and produced a slightly hazy hue. Spicy chalky finish with just a kiss of hops. Mild bready malt character. This is the style personified!
