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.

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.

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.

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.
