4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
From the bottle. Pours a nice amber with a massive thick foamy white head, looked like I could have shaved with it. grassy, slightly sweet fruity aroma with hints of alcohol. sweet, slightly syrupy mouthfeel, nice sharp carbonation. Slight alcohol flavor, hints of raisins, cloves and lemons. Absolutely delicious, like a nice dessert in a glass.

It depends on brewery is making this beer as to the quality but always an interesting light delicate tripel and I don’t think this beer ages well. Page 462 of Michael Jackson’s Great Beer Guide and only 233 of his 500 Classic Brews to go.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours a beautiful golden colour, hazy with an ample froty head. Aroma is complex and delicate: sweet malts, spicy banana, yeasty dough. Flavour reflects the aroma sweet malts pear apricot with notes of floral honey. After all that sweetness passed it becomes fruity dry with delicate hop bitterness. Lingering good aftertaste. It is a wonderful tripel - the very best I have had. Reminded me of the Abbaye des Rocs Brune (a definite compliment).

4.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
(750 mL) Poured a beautiful hazy pale blonde with a massive, slightly fizzy white head that is reluctant to go down. Smells of banana, citrus and maybe some pear. Typical yeasty, sugary, citrusy taste that most these belgian blondes have. There definately notes of banana here. No alcohol or bitterness in the aftertaste at all. A good beer you can give a bitch.

3.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Light stone fruit and banana aroma. Slightly hazy medium gold color with a vigorous real ale white head that laces. Starts fruit sweet, could be a mix of peach and orange, might not be; it then has a hit of yeastiness, gets a change in sweetness, seems to have some hop, but might be a bit of fruit peel without the sugar. Finishes very dry (after all the sugar runs through your mouth). A bit puckery despite the sweetness. As it warms, it seems that orange definitely comes forth in both aroma and flavor. Complex little thing.
