33 cL bottle. Pours cloudy yellow with a lacing white head. Light citrusy aroma. Flavour is sweet and yeasty. Light caramel malt flavour. Goes into a mellow mix of yeast and light citrusy/orange notes. Ends with a light yeasty and spiced flavour.

Ungstrup (29226) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - DEC 7, 2003
The aroma is very sweet with strong notes of peach, oranges, and yeast. The color is a hazy orange and it has a huge but fast disappering head. The flavor is extremely sweet - too sweet for my taste. With strong notes of peaches, apples, oranges, alcohol, and corriander. It ends on a combination of lemon and corriander with the sweetness lingering. An OK beer, but a bit too much alcohol and a little too sweet. The flavors though are magnificent. Thanks to Alex (Fiulijn) for trading this with me.

Papsoe (25088) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAY 15, 2005
UPDATED: JUN 14, 2005 (Bottle 75 cl) Another Triple from Unibroue - this time a rather unusual wheat based triple (they label it a "Triple blanche"). Orangey golden, hazy with the typical gigantic Unibroue-carbonation. Usual fruity, citrusy esters from the wheat - perhaps also some banana? Reminds me more of a German than a Belgian wheat. No immediate traces of coriander. 130105

joergen (20664) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - AUG 21, 2005
Bottled. Cloudy yellow coloured with floaties and a white head. Acidic aroma with lots of fruits and spices, notes of alcohol. Sweet flavour dominated by fruits and spices with notes of alcohol.

oh6gdx (20302) - Vasa, FINLAND - APR 8, 2010
Bottled@EBF2008. Orangeish golden colour with mediumsized white head that vanishes quite quickly. Aroma is fruits, some alcohol, mild herbal notes as well as some slight vanillalike notes. Flavour is being quite much the same. A rather bodied beer, which was a bit too sweet for my tastes.

Yellow-orange coloured. Hazy. Lively, fruity, and surprisingly light bodied.

Cloudy light amber color; big but fizzy head, that disappears quickly. It’s a common Strong Ale, with some sweetness, light fruitness; but it’s lacking the special character of Belgian Ales. The aroma has also light tomatoes in it. It’s not very bitter; at the end it’s possible to feel some alcohol warmth. Ordinary.

Cloudy golden color, creamy head. Very nice aroma, Tripel, candies, fruity (banana, apple). Dry maltiness, spices and oranges, with an ordinary palate. Gets a smoother sensation, sweeter, while oxydizing.

Dedollewaitor (13901) - Odense, DENMARK - SEP 13, 2007
Very hazy yellow with fine soft white filling and lasing head. Aroma is of yeast, wheat, spices (cinnamon, nutmeg), & citrus. Good lacings. Silky smooth & filling palate. Perfectly carbonated. Light sweetness & light warmth. Alcohol is well hidden. Perhaps a bit too sweet - but def. a nice brew!
