2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle corked and served in NB worthy glass: Looks the part with a clean golden hue topped with a frothy fading white head and very good lace. The nose detects plastic and minerals but then lead on to some apricot, peach, red apple, palm sugar, smoked and toffee malt, grassy and herbal hops, and that Belgium yeast character in toll. The taste is a shocking combination of raw cane sugar, wild flower and smoked malts, WTF? I wanna know where the heck the smokey character came from because in this case it did not belong. Ruined everything I hope for because I just could not taste the sweet fruit, sugary goodness or any woody/earthy flavours contained within. ARGGH, I am confused...

Bottle at Heffer, A’dam. Dissapointing. I can see why it’s called Deugd Niet. It has a very soapy taste and a peachy smell.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Hazy straw color with a taller fluffy white head 3+. Mild banana and orange aromas, with just a hint of biscuits. Very sweet and "raw" tasting. Some vegetable and other hints of DMS. Chalk and mild apple are also in the mix. I can see hos a triple could get a bad name. Bland, sweet, boring, with just enough off flavors to nearly make this one sickening.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Golden with a large white head. yesty aroma. Taste is a bit thin. There are sweet, spicy malts, but overall it’s rather subdued and uninspiring. Plenty of better tripels than this.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: AUG 17, 2006 Sweet, malty, vaguely spiced sticky Tripel. Lagery, crystal clear gold. Zzz. Not a bubble in sight. Barely noticed it was there. Not half as hoppy as the barman would have you believe. Van t’vat in t’Brugs Beertje.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Big pop at the uncapping, but no foam eruption. It poured a slightly hazed, bright yellow body with a dense, fizzy head. The aroma is of sharply sweet malts, yeast, apples & pears, and a small whiff of alcohol. Highly (but not annoyingly so) carbonated, with a spritzy, peppery mouthfeel. (Still, quite belch inducingly gaseous.) The flavor reflects the aroma with a slight addition of spiciness. Dry finish. Very drinkable.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Orange colour. Too weak a aroma, kind a thin. The same goes fore the flavor, too thin for a triple. No spice.
Earlier Rating: 10/19/2003 Total Score: 3.4
Pours a large head. Orange colored. Spice in the aroma together with orange/citrus. Not enough malt, to be one of the great.
