3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours golden with a thick white head. Aroma is light fruits, candy sugar, breadiness, corriander, belgian yeast. Flavor is pretty sweet for a tripel, white grapes, sugar, lots of yeast in the taste. Alcohol has a nice warming effect. Little bitterness in the finish, finish is average length, but not a lot to it.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Initial fear with the bottle with the cork exploded off when the cage was loosened. Surprisingly there was no beer escape. Pours copper with loads of carbonation and a large white pillowy white head. Aroma has lots of earthiness, fruit, white grape and moderate sweetness. Medium / full body with fairly sharp carbonation, but not too overpowering. Taste has big Belgium feel with thick earthiness, caramel malt, and hints of nectar-like fruit. Finish has spice mixing in with the more malty fullness and spiciness. Excellent tripel.

UPDATED: DEC 6, 2008 Bottle: Pours with a golden colour and a very nice white head. The lovely aroma is of yeast, coreander, peach and oranges. The flavour is sweet malt with taste of spices sutch as vanilla, pepper and coriander, citrus and green apple. Medium to full bodied. Well balanced. Slightly sour and bitter finish. Very enjoyable.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
750ml Bottle Purchased at Hollingshead Deli in Orange California, and consumed on 8/22/06. The beer appeared to have been bottled on 2/2/06. With the recomendation from the fine folks at Hollingshead I drank this beer at room temp to bring out the carmel flavor. After removing the metal cage, the cork flew off and the bottle began to pour out and I lost a little bit to the floor. The brew pours straw color and has a cloudy pillowy foamy head. The caramel flavor certainly comes through in this sweet tasting and alchol ridden tripel. My major complaint is that the alchol comes through a lot and the beer is only an 8%. Well worth a try and a quality tripel, not the best but it ranks highly.

On tap at Duvel Cafe (Sthlm). Incredible floral aroma, esters and spice. The taste is very complex and I really wish this was easier to get a hold of here in Sweden (state monopoly, remember...)

UPDATED: APR 13, 2008 Bottle, 33 cl. Taste this beer many times; have it always @ home. Like it very much. An unic combination grains with character. Hazy honey-like amber color, with a massive foamy head that disappates somewhat quickly. Aroma typical tripel scents - yeast, lots of alcohol, peach, apricot. Taste unusual thick mouthfeel with some soft doughy yeast, with present alcohol.

Bottle. Poured an excellent honey-like amber with a massive foamy head that disappates somewhat quickly. Typical tripel scents - yeast, lots of alcohol, peach, apricot. Unusual thick mouthfeel with some soft doughy yeast taste, with ever present alcohol. Has a coating effect on your mouth and you can really feel it go down. Has some white wine character to it. Fascinating.
