A rating WAY over due. First sampled at my favorite cafe in Uden..on tap. This latest taste came from a bottle from Destin, FL. Hazy golden amber pour...nice malt nose and flavor. I enjoyed this more in The Netherlands. It is a balanced brew...mild spice...yeasty..great Belgian edge. Expensive here, but a nice treat.

Slightly cloudy blonde with huge overflowing head. A bit out of control with the head...but I donít mind. Sweet and yeasty aroma. Very smooth and very carbonated. A little bit of fruit. Nice and thick....awesome.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Poured to a hazy golden-orange, with lots of carbonation that almost poured over the top of the glass. Snow-white head was thick and pillowy, and lingered through the entire drink, and reduced to excellent lacing up and down the glass. Aroma was a very pleasant blend of floral hops and spices, mostly clove and corriander. Taste was more of the same spices and floral hops, reminded me a lot of Duvel at this stage. Very long smooth finish topped this beer off. The only thing I noticed was that the alcohol became a little to evident at late glass, and I would recommend not letting hte beer warm all the way. But a most delicious beer.

UPDATED: JUN 26, 2008 33cl bottle. Pours slightly cloudy light orange with a large, non-lasting head. Complex fruit flavours, apricot and peach are prominent, sweet finish but with a nice íkickí in it. Have probably been overly mean with my rating on the basis that these arenít personally my favourite flavours, but it is a very interesting beer that I will come back to in the future.

ONE OF MY ABOLUTE FAVORITES. Bottle. Great combination grains with character. Poured an excellent honey-like amber. Yeast, lots of alcohol, ... almost perfect

Nice Belgian. Pours bright/cloudy yellow/orange. Aroma is yeasty and grainy. Flavor is fruity and tangy. Nice bubbles in the body make this a bit lighter than expected. Very lively.

UPDATED: NOV 9, 2006 75 cl: shared with csuders: aroma is like macro swill and yeast... my thought is that some of the hops have oxidized because of the green bottle. What was the brewer thinking! other than that it was a good brew. good bubbly mouthfeel. slightly fruity, with cloves and a cheesy flavor. blond beer with big chunks of yeast. I think Iíll need to re-rate it when in Iím in Europe. I leave in 8 days now. RERATE: on tap in McEwanís in Lille, France: The aroma was superb and came out past the smoke in the bar even. Lovely yeasty aroma with some malts lingering in the backgound, and some spices slightly sugery and peppery. came off the tap a golden blond with lovely billowing head that retained very well. Flavor was also very nice. malty but dry, with yeasty fruityness, and a peppery note in the back of the mouth. It really is a lovely beer after all

Golden orange, large pillowy white head that refused to die, excellent lacing. Aroma is spices, flora (very interesting!), light pepper, various fruits, light hops. Flavor is fairly dry. Mouthfeel is soft, delicate. Overall itís the best Tripel Iíve had. Wow. Complex, balanced, flavorful... this one has it all.

My favorite ! Typical tripel scents - yeast, lots of alcohol, peach, apricot. Has a coating effect on your mouth and you can really feel it go down. Fascinating.
A really great beer.
