4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
750 cork and wire. Poured into a tulip glass. I had this last night, no need for note taking this was extremely unique. Arome was a tame gueuze, funky barnyard. Extremely surprised, the flavor was a lot more traditional with a strong sweet belgian taste and just hints of those gueuze qualities in the background. The sweetness might be a turn of to some but I love it as well as the wild characteristics. My only complaint is the color was a bit to pale. Low bitterness, above average carbonation, medium full body.

Thanks Papsoe I have been looking for this rare triple. Understated fine taste, though dry. Reminds me of the finest Belgiums. Light colour with lace. Pleasant floral yeast aroma.Fruit in a smooth mouthfeel.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: FEB 17, 2007 Pale orange body with a filmy, pure white head. Distinct aroma with nice dry honey tones, cardamom, clove-like phenols, and pleasant perfume. Prominent spice and yeast characters, plus mild herbal hops and honey flavors. A well-balanced, nicely attenuated and perfectly conditioned tripel. A very pleasant surprise. Shared with illinismitty and phillymonksman at Eulogy.

Whaleman bought a bottle of this a Eulogy and poured me a glass. Pours hazy golden with a white head. Nice complex aroma of pear, yeast, cereal, flowers. Flavor is dry, with notes of spice, lemon, biscuit. Perfect amount of bitterness on the finish. A very fine tripel and very easy to drink. Not too alcoholic.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Hazy pale blond color; nice head; a lot of perlage. Spicy aroma, with malt and earth. Very dry front, then some malt and sweetness appear, to be dry again at the end; the flavor has spices as well (coriander) with a touch of lemon peel. The bitterness is ordinary. Overall, an interesting brew.

Bottle from Super Saver. Turbid gold pour with 1-finger off-white head. Big funky, candi sugary yeasty aroma, with some hopcit and floral spices too. The palate is dense, lively, and complex, with flavor hints of funky yeast, candi sugar, hopcitrus, and fruit. This is a nice one.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottled [BB 09/2007].
Hazy pale orange, huge cloudy off-white head, very good lacing. A spicey, hoppy, fruity, slightly alcoholic aroma. Fresh-lemony, slightly alcoholic flavor. Bitterness is short, palate could be stronger but otherwise world class "session" triple.
