4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
In the stunningly attractive green painted label 750 ml bottle. The pour is a ripe pear golden color with such an explosive white head that the glass was filled instantly with foam. Aroma is such a pronounced lemony citrus sweetness that nothing else is readily discernable. Good golly it’s a smooth drink. I could gulp a whole bathtub of this without thinking about it! I’ve grown so accustomed to drinking the 10-12 % abv Triples that I had no idea that a lower-test potion like this could be so delightful. I’m lovin’ it, although I do miss the ethanol punch of the stronger triples.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
(Bottle 33 cl) Amber-golden, hazy beer with a nice, frothy head. Very soft mouthfeel. Dominated by the malts (this is a 3-grain beer). Some spiciness and citrusy notes with only a faint, late bitterness. Rather complex and indeed very interesting. 250697

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Large soft frothy white head on top of a clear light golden body. Spicey lemon aroma. Smooth medium mouthfeel, not real complex but several flavours there, oily, lemons, oats, a hint of peach, sweet malt and a touch of warming alcohol at the end.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
I found this beer on Tap at the BXL resturant in NYC. Yellow collor. Nice aroma. Not a lot of head on it.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Clear light orange in color with a head bubbly in texture, gigantic in size, and sticky in its falling. Very funky nose with bright fruit aromas, whiffs of alcohol, along with a hints of yeast and pepper. A Tripel just loaded with flavors. Very complex, funky, farmy, yeasty flavors loaded with fruit flavors. A sensational beer.

4.7 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Seved in a Tripel Karmeliet tulip glass. Has a caramel, almost banana aroma to it. An amber color with a heavy, frothy white head that practically bursts from the glass - absolutely beautiful. Moderately sweet with a slightly bitter aftertaste on the back of your tounge. Medium body with a creamy texture and a long finish, lasting minutes after your last sip.

Frothy yet creamy head, beautiful beer! Soap and citrusy nose. Soapy front with a sweet, long finsh. Soft, oily & medium bodied. My local co-op serves this beauty in a 12oz and 750ml. Flying Pie Pizza probably taps a keg now and then.

Brewed with oats (in this puppy, ’tripel, means three grains-oats, barley and wheat), this is far more acidic than the usual tripel--which makes it a great change of place for an Acidic Jew like myself. Great glass (chalice with frosted glass on the sides).

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: JUN 1, 2005 Not a big fan after first try from the bottle, but had it from the tap at Monks Cafe in Philadelphia and my opinion quickly changed. Very carbonated with a large white foamy head and palate. Bubbly caramel color with light, fresh, fruity flavor. Glad I had the draft.
