UPDATED: JUL 4, 2004 2003 750 mL corked bottle. Purchased in October 2003 and aged 7 months. Hazy golden yellow with a moderate white head. Fruity yeasty aroma. Body has a hint of bitterness in the front, and nice well rounded alcoholic fruit and the usual tripel flavours. I don't think this one necessarily benefitted from aging. 6/3/7/3/16

Oct 2000 Taste Pack, bottled. My first impression is that I like it a lot. I hesitate to say its my favorite so far - it may just be the most recent in my mind! It is quite nice though.. Golden tripel, its deceptive alcohol content is less noticeable than in some of the other Unibroue products. 8/4/8/3/16

Banana, bubblegum and vanilla notes. Cloudy yellow, fine white head. Banana and yeast flavors. Sports a very slight alcoholic burn.

heykevin (1281) - Decorah, Iowa, USA - JUN 22, 2003
Persistent head atop a golden body. Light spice aroma with typical unibroue yeasty nose. Nice body with velvety carbonation. Finish is clean and smooth. Alcohol is well hidden in the flavor but felt when standing position is resumed. Perhaps a step down in strength from some of the other major Unibroue products, but not a step down in quality.

Boutip (5808) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 22, 2003
UPDATED: JUL 15, 2003 Suprisingly, this is a light orange colour beer. A lot lighter then other belgian triple. Pourred a nice clear white head. The alcohol is well hidden. Taste very sweet. Very good beer but not a traditional triple.

Sully (1380) - Potts Point, New South Wales, AUSTRALIA - JUN 21, 2003
Orange head, low hop aroma and taste with a mandarin nose from the bottle. It is an agreable beer but not special. The gay label must impress with some. Not me.

AustinMilbarge (681) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JUN 15, 2003
Honey, golden color, hazy. Some light carbonation, the bubbles are little. Sweet, yeasty aroma. Maybe some apples. Fairly tart flavor. There seems to be a little bit of malty roastiness. Another good offering from Unibroue.

Extremely fragrant, but surprisingly light. Looks as if it were filtered through dirty socks in a suitcase. Oh, it WAS. The bottled looked good. Quite a promising beer. I think my pants, sweatshirt, socks, suitcase, sheets and mattress all enjoyed consuming what I will still be waiting to see as I wasn't quite up to staining the remains through my teeth with hopes of missing glass fragments. Oh Canada!

kumite56 (473) - Cordova, Tennessee, USA - MAY 25, 2003
Golden cloudy color with a white mostly diminishing head. Fruity aroma and taste with noticable malt sweetness. A little sour on the finish however. Not one of my favorites.

joeycapps (1468) - Waterdown, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 7, 2003
Hazy golden/orange w/ white head (which didn't last). Yeast, fruit (banana), caramel, & some band-aid on the nose. Feels a little thick--would have like a little more carbonation. Very malty flavour w/ yeast, fruit (banana, peach), & light caramel. Dry, moderately acidic finish w/ lots of alcohol. Flavours, unfortunately, don't come together particularly well.

Jokes (1453) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - APR 29, 2003
Golden orange color with a fluffy, white head. The aroma is yeasty and spicy, with notes of bananas, soft yeast, apples and honey, and a light citrus element. The flavor is not quite as sweet or fruity as the nose suggested, but that's not altogether bad. A nice dry malt character stands strong above a light fruity sweetness. Not the most outstanding Unibroue beer, but one that is still tasty and smooth.
