4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: MAY 29, 2003 Strong, malty, peppery, fruity with a slightly bitter finish. A must try for any beer fan and a good introduction to Belgian ales.
Unlike others here I didn't get the over carbonation.

The first initial sip has a delayed spicy taste. Once you swallow it, the spice kicks you on the palate. Another excellent Unibroue product.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
UPDATED: OCT 7, 2003 Loses an impression point for having a really stupid poem on the back label. Complex aroma of vegetables like brussels sprouts or asparagus or something, mixed in with fresh coriander and a bit of marzipan - pretty weird. Flavours start off well with a rich maltiness and strong spices, and a touch of mango. But then it all evaporates in a short finish. rer8: this is ridiculously sweet. honey smacks cereal + extra peanut butter. easy drinkin though apart from sweetness.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Sour, musky and slightly skunky. Bright orange color, temporary robust foam, cloudy, very light Brett. A very good example.

Great triple. I almost fell out of my chair when I learned it was Canadian. Oh Canada... Tickles your nose and your palate. Very smooth, with a bit less flavour than Duinen, Gulden Draak or Kasteel, but nonetheless the best thing that came out of Canada so far.

Dark golden. Malty and rather sweet. Complex with some late bitterness.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Appearance: orangish, reminiscent of cider or champagne, little head; aroma nicely fruity (orange and dates I thought) but rather weak. Flavor very light and citrusy for a strong beer; body moderate, carbonation strong. Dryish finish but with definite malt presence. Good triple, not great, average for the brewer I’d say.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cloudy orange and fizzy with apparent Brussels lace. This lively carbonated tripple masks its alcohol content well--featuring a rounded spicing and mild bitterness. Too bad the flavor dissipates quickly.

This is not the best this brewery has to offer in a tripple. It is a bit more traditional than their other offerings but it does not approch the luxury of Fin Du Monde. Nice though, a bit sour and not too well balanced, but still better than many.
