Bottle. Poured a hazy orange with a fizzy off-white head that settled quickly. Aromas of dark fruits, spice, apple, and a light earthiness. The flavor had dark fruits and spice. Medium body and sweet.

Deep gold, fluffy white head. Aromas of all the fruits of autumn, roasted and spiced. Nose is musky and sweet; flavor is slightly sweet and spicy with a hint of warming alchohol. Long aftertaste of apples. Deep characteristics of a belgian tripel. Excellent.

I guess this is a bit old but like me, mellow. Cloudy amber with a big white head. The aroma is fruity and earthy with a nice blend. The flavor starts sweet and fruity and ends with some hop character and an alcohol bite. Finishes quite nice with a taste that lingers on. Very good.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
25 ounce bottle. Pours a hazy orange with a large ivory head. Audible and persistent fizz. Aroma is mainly of dust and fruit (orange fruits). Plain, but pleasant. Flavorís got some good creamy dairy in it, quite fruity though, perfumy finish. Pretty sweet, borderline cloying. Mouthfeel is decent, average. Not a bad ale unto itself, though Unibroue is usually a little more impressive. Overall, good.

28th December 2008. Hazy gold beer, very little head. Sweet and dry with an unusual pear fruit tone and some mango as well. Warming dry finish. Smooth but a tad too dry.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours a hazy orange body with an off white head. Fruity etoh latent ester, apricots, lemon zest, some light apple tones, and a woody warming. Peach with a spicy yeast strand that warms and nibbles at the tongue. A bitter earth toned finish. Nice ale.

750. Bright hazy gold, a few little floaties, and a foamy white head. Unibroue always has nice head retention. Aroma of spice and sweet apples. Flavor is almost cider-like, with the alcoholic strength present but still second to sweetness. It has a nice acidity like a white wine, too. Light and spicy, this beer has aged exceptionally - I think Unibroue had a real winner with this one. Itís a pleasure to drink.

750ml bottle from Premier Gourmet. Pours cloudy ochre colour with foamy head, not lasting and not much lacing. Slightly sweet, spicy and over ripe apples and malt aroma. Malty dried fruit, yeasty flavour with nice carbonation. Lingering aftertaste with noticeable, though not overpowering alcohol.

So hereís the deal: Unibroue is without a doubt the brewer that I love to hate. Canít stand their house yeast, which is oh-so-definitive (and youíve got to admire them for that, like it or not). But look, this beer just pwned me because, whether I like it or not, I have to admit that it absolutely rocked. Itís a beautifully crafted tripel (why listed as Belgian strong?) and it is drinking absolutely amazing right now with three years on it. Muscat and green apricot, whispers of mandarin and pineapple, yeah that Unibroue yeast but so well matched this time around, sweet bready tripel, mmmm....so good. Floaty matter, golden beauty, white head, unbelievably smooth on the tongue. Perfect age, splendid beer. Yeah, itís me as an Ann Arbor native admitting that Ohio State has a good football team, but Unibroue put together a heck of a beer here. Kudos to them.

Bottle. Poured a murky dark orange with a thin light brown head. Aroma was sweet with floral and light citrus notes as well as a grainy sweetness from the malts. Flavor is sweet from the malts with a floral undertone. Very smooth on the tongue.
