From a 750 ml. caged cork brown bottle with a best before date on the back label, 19.04.09. Poured a cloudy with sediment, bright pale golden with a fizzy, foamy head that settled into a thin sudsy lacing, minimal amount of sticking. Aromas of earthy yeast, coriander, orange zest, sour green apple and spicy hops. Good carbonation and a crisp, dry, carbonated smooth light bodied mouthfeel. Pleasant tasting, coriander, sour apple hard candy, orange peel, dry earthy yeastiness, sweet malty with a light touch of honey and spicy hops that have a soft bitterness, nice Belgian ale drinkability, could be dangerously quaffable. A tasty and balanced Belgian Tripel, if you like Belgian ales, this is worth trying.

Hansen (8092) - Assentoft, DENMARK - JUL 31, 2006
Orange colour. Too weak a aroma, kind a thin. The same goes fore the flavor, too thin for a triple. No spice.

Pours a large head. Orange colored. Spice in the aroma together with orange/citrus. Not enough malt, to be one of the great.

750 cork and wire. Cork No. 144302. Color is more yellow than golden, small head. Looks macro-ish. Aroma is present - wheaty fishy smell with light candi sweetness. Taste is similar. As a friend pointed out this was more like a Leffe Blond than a tripel.

6th Dutch Ratebeer Gathering. Aftertaste is a bit bitter. Flavor has got some hints of koriander and/or some other spices. A bit sweet too. Enjoyable, but not too special.

LilKem (1213) - Marietta, Ohio, USA - FEB 19, 2006
No distinct aroma to speak of. Tastes kind of like lemon merangue, black pepper, and corriander. Flavor is kind of tangy, fruity (very slight sweet citrus flavor). Weird. Interesting, but weird. Kinda hits me wrong.
