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.

Tasted at Vinens Verden... Nice little blond/tripel beer. Freshness and bitter/sweet taste are well balanced. a lot of banana flwour to it.

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.

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.
Iím not bowled over by the complexity of this one, but that may have been the circumstances rather than the beer, and Iíll 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.
