4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
11.2oz Best before 01/03/08. Pours a clear golden with a gigantic rocky white head. Aroma is actually somewhat like a wit at first with some orange and coriander up front. Also some yeast, banana, pear, and light toffee. This seems to be one of the fruitier tripels as these flavors dominate. There is also plenty of yeastiness, a little toffee, and some alcohol warmth as well. Dry finish, highly carbonated, medium bodied with nice lacing. Very nice.

Pours very cloudy yellow/amber with clumps of yeast and other precipitates. Mild yeast aroma with appley sweetness. In the mouth it’s sweetness and light, almost like a cider. Well carbonated.

Big white head that quickly dissipates. Sweet and malty with little to no hop aroma or biterness. Hazy yellow color and very little alcohol taste for 8%.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
0,33l bottle. HUGE white head, which settles at last. Bubbling like champagne, but very grainy (pun intended). Complex nose, too complex for me I suppose. Melis, rhubarb, lavendel, citrus is somewhere there. Extremely big beer. Soothing aftertaste, good and smooth transition.

UPDATED: SEP 7, 2006 330 ml bottle.
Pours golden with a nice head. The aroma is deeply fruity - lemon and orange, some honey, plenty of spice. The flavor follows, offering a lovely sweetness on the front and a fine bitter finish.
I’m not bowled over by the complexity of this one, but that may have been the circumstances rather than the beer, and I’ll be absolutely delighted to revisit.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Poured a hazy bright yellow with a huge amount of froathy white head that does not go away one bit. Aroma is caramel, lemon, banana, and slight brandy alcohol. Flavor was much more bitter than i expected from a tripel, citrus lemon flavor definitely there. Overall, decent, but not my favorite.

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Aroma: sweet, malty, yeast, metal, fruit, hay
Appearance: large head initially, mostly diminishing, fair lacing, golden/yellow/sparkling
Flavor: moderately sweet, lightly bitter,
Palate: body-medium, texture-dry/watery, carbonation-soft, finish-metalic/alcohol
Overall: It has been one of my favorite Tripels so far.... the fruitiness comes out if you have it at the right temp.... which I think should be only slightly chilled....
and someone mentioned flowers in the taste... I can totally get that....
