Nice sweet aroma. Head dies quickly with a little lace. Tastes like Unibroue Maudite with a little more citrus, but not as smooth, sweet or good. Lively carbonation. Hazy orange-yellow appearance.

Spice and yeast aroma, a lot of head, so good head retention because of the oats, some hazy yellow in appearance. Very good carbonation. Yeast and wheat are very present in the taste, barley not noticeable at all, anyway it is a good one.

The citrus sparkle, taste and fragrance of the beer earns it the title of "orange bloosom special". Clean on the palate, sweet and yet lusciously sour on the tongue. The color is that of a mirky pool of summer nectar. You can certainly taste the tradition and craftsmanship. The alcohol is well disguised and the sour dough like yeasty tones concocted to mellow perfection. This is a great southern summer porch sipper.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: MAR 7, 2015 Hazy golden pour with loads of carbs topped by a finely structured head showing good retention. Lacing is also very nice. The nose is very delicate with notes of caramel, lemon, honey and yeasts. The taste is excellent with a great fruity presence of the yeast delivering apples and pears paired with a dense contribution of floral hops. The mouthfeel is sharp, lightly acidic and dense which I found very enjoyable. Overall this one is a must for anyone who enjoys well-crafted beers. You could easily put this one in your cellar for 2 or 3 years.

Pours a bright golden color with a big white head that is both foamy and fizzy at the same time. The head dissipates fairly quickly. Nose of malts and fruits with some very subtle floral notes. Taste is complex and beautifully balanced with notes of apple, grape, citrus, hop, and spice. Champagne like carbonation on the palate and a sweet, dry finish like white wine. This is a thouroughly enjoyable brew.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Draught, 8/25/07. Crystal clear with short lived fizzy foam. Aroma is slightly buttery with notes of spice and banana. Too sweet with too much spiciness and more of that damn buttery flavor. Not diacetyl, very strange. It’s loved by many, but eh for me.

My favourite triple, a permanent guest to my cellar.
Nice head, lasts quite some time if well poured ,which I do not always manage :-( ...
Nose malty and yeast, some discreet gras / flower. First sip reveals a strong taste where in my opinion malt and yeast a perfetly balanced. Quite often I find the yeast too strong in triples, but here it is just perfect.
Second sip hints at some fruit, finish is not too strong which makes it a dangerously drinkable beer ;-)

Quite possibly the finest tripel I have ever tasted. Could that be that it has been a week since my last beer, and weeks since my last tripel? Beautiful clear golden color, very complex flavor, reminding me slightly of more aromatic and robust German hefeweizens. Sweetens on the finish as it warms.
