Wow, this one is great! Iím not a big belgian beer fan, iím slowly getting into it. But this one, near perfect! From the golden color in the pour, to the fruity aroma, all the way to the taste of fruity/sweetness. Oh man, this is great

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Another beer on the "canít believe I havenít rated it yet" list - almost clear, bubbly, straw-colored pour, with a fizzy head - bright, fruity aroma, with notes of peach, apricot, candi sugar, background spicy qualities and light wheat/bread - fairly sweet, but with a nice spice and a light, earthy tartness in the background to balance it out - semi-tingly carbonation, keeping it from being as smooth as it could be - peach and apple, with the tang of fruit skins thrown in there - light vanilla and honey develops as the beer warms up - a nice alcohol warmth that never becomes overpowering - a tiny bit of banana and melon - nicely balanced.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pretty, peach-colored body with a large-bubbled head,which quickly fades away. The arom ais full: spicy, full of breads and wheat and a lingering fruitiness (melons?). Lots of carbonation. It dominates the mouthfeel with foam! Anyway, the flavor is good. Rich, full of fruits. Well-balanced sweet and yet not too astringent with the alcohol. Its just the carbonation that really gets to me.

As beautiful a beer as youíll see, golden/hazy with an elegent foamy head. Some complex maltiness, though balanced, with a big lemon flavour dominating the palate. A great tripel (and probably my favourite glass.)

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle. Pretty nose of spices, fruits and yeast. A large bright white head leaves excellent lacing down to a bright gold beer. Quite musky, floral, sweet and sour flavor profile. This oneís all over the map. Lush, silky, creamy mouthfeel. Finishes yeasty, sweet and sour.

4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Finally I got around rating one of my all time favourites. 33 cL bottle. Pours hazy orange with a huge creamy/crispy slight off-white head. Aroma is orange peel, yeasty and some malt, the combination simply screams out what a true belgian tripel is. Flavour follows the aroma tightly, orange, spice and clear malty flavoured in a mellow malty sweetness. Finish is vaguely bitter but more malty and spiced. Very well balanced and still light. Uncomplicated (but not simple) and wellcrafted balance between the spices, malt and the yeast notes.

Bottlle. Dark gold, bubbly and slightly viscous, thin white head. Aromatic nose with usual cloves, sweet fruitiness and a little alcohol. Satisfying smooth, full mouthfeel, fruity sourish finish which lingers on the tongue. Warms and tickles on the way down. Very nice.
