4.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Poured with average sized frothy white head. Head was mostly diminishing. Body is very clear gold color. Nose is of grain, citrus, and hops. Initial flavor is sweet and and finish is sharp, acidic and bitter and dry with an alcoholic bite . I do sense some coriander/clove/spicy notes in there. Finish doesn’t last too long. This is a very interesting beer. It’s amazing how much this beer changes from the time you take a sip into your mouth to the finish. I am not normally a huge fan of tripels, but I really enjoy this one!

UPDATED: MAY 13, 2010 Sampled on draft at the Sharp Edge Beer Emporium this beer poured a dark golden color with a large fluffy white head that produced decent lacing. The aroma was sweet tangy malts, pear, grape with a lightly yeasty undertone. The flavor is very sweet with nice light malts, candied pear, apricots, yeast, and light dry spice that I am unable to identify. There is a mild alcohol burn. Fairly full bodied.

(Bottle) What a wonderful tripple, the best I’ve tasted so far! Pours golden amber, with white fizzy head. Notes of spices (coriander) and citrus/lemon. Dry mouthfeel, and well balances bitterness.

Poured from the bottle this beer is a nice golden color with a fizzy head. Aroma is amazing lemon grass with fruity tones and yeasty breads. Flavor is smooth with touches of wheat, lemon, pepper spcies with some grassines and plenty of natural fizz. Mouthfeel is also fizzy but still smooth with little to no burn and the alcohol is well blended. Excellent beer.

On tap (!!!) in cafe Delibere, Leuven. Golden colour, white head. Fruity and floral aroma. Soft and easy to drink, no particular dominating flavour. Pleasing mouthfeel. Alcohol is well-hidden.

No#60. Iv seen this on the best in scotland list and always wanted to try it, but never found it in scotland, so here goes. Aroma is fresh with appley, fruit salad and dried apricots making a delicious aroma. Taste is also fresh and fruity goodness which seems really well balanced for a triple. This is what i would want a triple to always be like, however few live up to be this good.

Good golden triple. Fruity. Although 8%, you don’t notice te taste of alcohol too much (like some other triples).

Tap at maproom. A bit peppery and sweet. Taste is pretty alcoholic. Gold color, not super dry. Decent, but not amazing.
