Dark golden with lots of particulate matter, diminishing head. Nose is yeasty of course, fruity (bananas and blueberries) and lightly floral. Actually similar to a hefeweizen, in my opinion. Malty with some complexity. Has me thinking creme brulee. Alcohol is evident, though not offensive. Finishes with a flair of pepper and spice. An enjoyable tripel.

The label looks like a cherub past his prime, wishing he was still a fat little baby. Not very intimidating or scary, like other Unibroue labels. I think they try to intimidate you into buying the beer. Regardless, I enjoyed the fruity complexity and deep amber color of this beer. The middle-aged cherub failed to intimidate me, however.

Enjoyed the spicy and complex flavour. Its strength is not really noticable.

Pretty nice beer without being a classic. The aroma is typical Unibroue but not too exciting. Has a pretty nice honey-coloured appearance and a decent head. I was surprised about the slightly sticky malt taste but it was well balanced by spices and hops. Not much of a aftertaste. Nothing like a good Belgian triple, but a nice drop al the same.

UPDATED: MAY 4, 2003 This beer rocks. A complex and excellent beer. The aroma was lightly floral and lightly yeasty. I detected apples, lemon and an unfamiliar, very pleasant spice in the nose. This masterpiece has a murky golden hue with a large, rocky white head. Nice lacing and fully lasting. Delicious. Very malty, but well balanced. Not sweet. A touch sour (I dig that) with hints of citrus and alcohol. The 9% ABV is fairly well hidden. Medium body with a creamy mouthfeel. Lively carbonation. A touch acetic in the finish, but mostly just long and very dry with a hint of clover lingering on the tongue. Excellent Belgian strong ale. Belgian Trippel fans must try this one. Highly recommended.

taste a little like Fin du monde but a little less strong. Less spicy too.

One of the only ales from this brewer I don’t like. Fruity,spicy with a bitter after taste.

softale (188) - Michigan, USA - SEP 6, 2002
Golden in color. A pretty thin head for a tripel. Nose is fruity, spicy, floral and just a bit of leather. A bit sweet up front with a dry finish. Not quite as good as La Fin Du Monde but still quite good. Another good Belgian style brew from Unibroue.
