4.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
UPDATED: JAN 27, 2005 This is the " Creme de la Tripel" in my opinion. A perfect golden color with a large substantial white head that lasts. Yeast and spice are in the forefront with aroma and taste. A smooth body, slightly sweet but not cloying as with most tripels. very nice.

Golden color with a bubbly white head. Flowery & citrus aroma. Grapefruit that goes with the aroma. Candy sugar, dark dried fruits. Moderate hop bitterness & flower taste. Full-mouth feeling; tickling carbonation. Good mouthfeel.

75cl bottle, date rubbed off the cage. Slightl hazy bronze color. Nice foamy white head. Cork in the nose initially. Nice creamy, silky body, highlighted by an earthy cellar character along with some sweet vanilla malt in the finish. Reminds me of St Druon de Sebourg in its combo of spice and must. Very enjoyable, Iíll have to find a smaller uncorked bottle to see if it has the same character.

UPDATED: FEB 28, 2005 Pours a cloudy gold with a frothy head. Aromas of apricots and figs. Juicy orange flavor w/ some sweet passion fruit. Grassy styrian goldings. Nice refreshing body. A little on the sweet side for the style. Need to use a bit more sugar in the boil.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: FEB 27, 2005 This tripel pours golden with a great amount of yeasts if poured slowly. The aroma is dominated by wheat, orange, banana, and malt for the most part. There is also wine in it. The taste is basically the same as the aroma with hops. The sweetness of this beer makes it unique. The aftertaste is kind of like a wine aftertaste. A very good tripel indeed.

75cL bottle aged for more than a year. It has been a while since we have had this but it is not as we remember. Not that we are complaining! It is light golden/straw color and a bit hazy. We thought this beer was sweeter, but maybe the age has done it well. It has a citrusy, fruity, saison flavor combination going on in it. Very nice.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Orange murky colour, huge rocky head. Great aroma of banana and bubble gum with a hint of spice. Smooth medium bodied palate. Belgian yeasts and malt dominate, with a mildly sweet taste. I can taste a hint of spice, but not enough to identify it.
