Blond, living beer with a fine and generous head. Balanced association of green apple fruit and fine hop. Light bitterness, smooth, beer with character.

Ungstrup (28458) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - DEC 16, 2004
[Vintage 1992 - sampled 2004] A hazy orange beer with no head. The aroma is sweet with notes of alcohol, dust, peach, and oranges. The flavor is sweet with notes of alcohol, malt and fruit - especially peach. The alcohol runs burning over the tongue and in the throat - and still the body is surprisingly thin for an 8% ABV beer.

The aroma is slightly fruity. The color is a dark orange and it has a beutiful head. The flavor is fruity and prickling from a good malt blend with some notes of alcohol. But all in all it is a very simple flavor with a good palate.

Orange coloured, white head. Some malts and citrus in aroma, sweet flavour with some dryness in the end. Ok beer, nothing beer.

I think i had a bad bottle (at least i hope i so), because this one was so bad i had to give it away. Weak spicy flavor, unpleasant dryness and obvious alcohol shining through. I'll try it again to be sure.

JorisPPattyn (7722) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - DEC 4, 2004
Pale orange; fluffy white head, leaving shards of lace. Dryish nose: both white candi-sugar and some garden herb. Rest is citrus. Some dry tripel taste at first, bits of citrus. Then sugary sweetness seeps in, leaving very little dryness left. Sugar-preserved oranges? Faint bitterish taste, not hoppy. The dryness left, just a sugar-filled medium bodied beer with a bit of alcohol. No real stamina, just a less-than-average tripel. Swee-eet.
Earlier Rating: 5/13/2004 Total Score: 3.4
Very pale yellow; thick white head, not stable. Bit lactic, white candi sugar, dry, spicey nose. Taste is dry, with a rather fruity character. Definitely sugar added, then well attenuated. Very true-to-style, but unremarkable. Dry-bitterish, spicey aftertaste. Very standard, but fruity. Original concept for Flanders, Antwerpen province especially. Triple Moine, St. Benoit - where’s the difference now? That is why I changed this to Abbey Tripel. Oh, and it says so on the bottle...

Elegant color. Full taste with a yielded and full aroma. Optimal, adherent and persistent foam. Fizzy.

Cornboy (424) - Eastampton, New Jersey, USA - NOV 14, 2004
Nice golden pour, very lively bottle. Dated 11/03 on back. Mixed fruit in honey on the nose. On the sweet side, loads of honey comes through. Very enjoyable.

UPDATED: JAN 10, 2005 Original Rating 7-4-9-4-17=4.1 10/6/2004: Yeasty aroma with strong notes of citrus-fruit and a mild peppery spiciness. Opaque dark yellow-blond with plenty of suspended yeast and generous white head that recedes to fair cover, slowly and with some lace. Fairly bitter up front, sweet malt, candi sugar and citrus-fruity yeast esters emerge throughout the long, clean flavour. Very fine, but strong carbonation stimulates the front of the tongue. Medium body yet somehow still nice and refreshing. Bottle.

Re-rate 7-4-7-3-14=3.5 9-Jan-05: Strong alcohol hovers over sweet malts with tart lemon, bread dough-like yeast and a mild ginger and honey character. Hazy yellow-tan with plenty of suspended yeast and nice, small-bubbled, white head that recedes to lasting cover with patchy lacing. Mild wheat flavour, lemony tartness, some ginger notes with a lingering sweet cookie-dough finish. Pleasant light effervescence and creamy medium body. Bottle (Best Before 10/05) enjoyed with MartinT and Rastacouere.

Oakes (11866) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 17, 2004
Orangey-gold colour. Loads of fruit - banana, melon, some phenols. Very sweet, candyish flavour, maybe some mapley notes. Almost flat (1992 vintage).

madsberg (9654) - Søborg, DENMARK - AUG 5, 2004
Bottled, Vintage 1992: Orange coloured. Unclear. Not much head. Pruny and a little old aroma. Other fruitnotes present. Perfumed and sweet and fruity flavour. Not much going on in the aftertaste. Is too old.
