2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Whole Foods- of all places- had 4 of the 33 cl / 11.2 oz bottles plus the lovely ’official’ Karmeliet tulip glass for only $13.00- great deal. The huge head lasted forever. I was surprised with the sweetness of this beer right away. It did mellow a bit towards the end though. Quite smooth- it was pleasany enough to drink, but it was a bit too sweet of a tripel for my taste.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap. Pours with a fairly light yellow color. Stronng citrus aromas. Initial taste was almost akin to a sour, a bit like a Temptation. That sourness disspated a bit, and banana and bit of hops took over. A fairly complex brwew, but I am not quite sure what to make of it, not the typical tripel.

UPDATED: MAY 17, 2007 I am a novice on Tripels.. but I have to rate it similar to Allagash. Not quite as tasty.. More subtle...not necessarilly a bad thing though.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: SEP 2, 2007 Bottle from Shamansburys. Triplel K is a favourite for not only its taste, but also the tulip glass, adorned with the fleur de lais - a symbol sacred to New Orleanians. Right, the beer. Wheat in colour with floaty white head. Wheat grain nose with orange, lemon and subtle berries. The taste progresses naturally through the mouth. Sweet, spicey, then salty. Notes of orange and dates float about, but if you ask me, it tastes just like a soft pretzel. Nice, warm alcohol finish. Spot on.

3.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Nice, sweet aroma. Slightly cloudy amber appearance--very attractive. Creamy head. Initial and finish flavor is heavily sweet--too sweet for me after half the bottle. The taste is unique: flowery bread with hints of apple, grape, and honey...and even less lemon. Not much hops. Cannot taste the 8% alcohol at all. This is what chicks should drink instead of malternative alcopop.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: SEP 13, 2008 One of my favorite Abbey’s. I have had this both on tap and in a bottle in Belgium and in Geneva. The balance makes this a wonderful ’tripel’ experience. One of my favorite brews to have on a cold winter nights. I prefer this on tap, but the bottle isn’t far behind.
Blond with lasting white frothy head. Citrus and spice aromas. Citrus, spices, and wheat notes. Excellent balance and will session this beer until my legs allow me.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: APR 8, 2007 This golden beer has a head that is incredibly huge, firm and lasting and it leaves a nice lace. The aroma is fruity and the mouth feel is nice an oily. The flavour is slightly sweet with notes of freshly baked bread, coriander and a nice citrus bitterness, that closes the ball in a nice way. A really, really delicious tripel - my favourite tripel, I think...

this was a very good representation of it’s kind. Not MY favorite kind mind you. It’s head lasted till the end - and then some. It was crisp and slightly tart without the usual ’spiciness’ that comes with a belgium. I wou;d buy it again, but it good if that’s YOUR beer
