3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Aroma is spicy with pepper, coriander, lemon grass and lots of banana yeasty character. Straw yellow, cloudy with a huge white head that thins. Lots of banana in the flavor with more of the corander spice. Very hot with some noticeable alcohol. Very crisp and dry but it still manages to stay sweet. Thanks to malachi for sharing.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours golden, almost like an apple juice. The intial aroma contained corriander and spice with a small hint of fruitiness. The taste was almost all fruit - bananas and cherries being the strongest - shortly followed by hints of toffee and burnt toast. It causes a unique burning sensation in the nostrils. Excellent choice for a tasting session.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Poured an effervescent golden with a fizzy white head that dissipated quickly. Aroma of apples, pears, cinnamon, dark fruits. Taste is sweet and fruity with pears, cloves, some herbal hoppy flavors. Body is light, fizzy, and evanesces quickly, leaving behind just a touch of dryness in the mouth. Overall a light, pleasant tripel.

UPDATED: DEC 22, 2005 It had a strong wheat taste and the carbonation came across as very strong. It was like drinking alka-seltzer. Cheers !!!

Bottle. Illegible notes. Got pretty wrecked and will need to rerate for more details. What it says is (I think):" nice spice cumin Louie(?) sweet orchard. I remember enjoying it greatly and I was with it enough to do the numbers at least...rerate is a good excuse to buy another one, cause this is real nice as best I remember, but I don’t remember well enough. Better drink another!

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle (330ml). My 700th rating. Poured clear bubbly gold with a massive foamy-rocky white head. Tons of funky coriander and pungent spices, banana, alcohol, lightly roasty-sugary malt, even holly (how Christmasy). Taste actually has light hop bitterness to follow the promise of the nose, plus a bit of nice aged white wine - solid. Mouthfeel is moderately carbonated, almost sugary, gently complex, not sweet at all. Very nice - almost resiny - much more "sophisticated" than some tripels - not as good, but classier, eh?

From the bottle, this beer pours a clear, dark gold with a massive, lasting head that leaves behind nice lacing. The armoa is a veritable corriander bomb with supporting hoppy notes of grass and citrus and minor aromas of malty horseblanket and cellar. The flavor starts off sweet and ends with a hoppy, clean, slightly bitter finish. The palate is fizzy, light and drinkable. I found this beer quite enjoyable.
