3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Nice color but the head disolves too quickly. The first few mouthfulls were good but it got a little mediciny after that. I drank it 4 hours ago and I’m still tasting it. I love most Unibroue beers and I don’t hate this one but it’s among my least favorite of their brews. I prefer Don De Dieu which is similar but not as aggressing to the palette in my opinion.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Golden in color. A lot of aroma here, especially the yeast. Some hay, spice. It seems rather bland and lacking the lightness and crispness of other triples I’ve had.

3.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pale gold with a hint of wit cloudiness. Interesting nose, sour with some peppermint. Flavor is of lemon zest, mint, and spice. Is tangy and yeasty but a mite medicinal. As it warms, it gets unpleasantly sugary.

2.1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
I just can’t get over the incredibly strong yeasty smell of the Unibroue family. I understand that they are fermented in the bottles and not usually filtered, but the yeast gives off such a pungent smell that is disarming. This brew seemed to have a case of it bad. It tasted, on the whole, unremarkable, but there were slight citrus (sour) notes followed by a sweet ending. The carbonation in my bottle was almost unbearable. Can’t say that I liked it.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Yeast, malt smell. Hazy golden, brief head. Spice and citrus flavour, lots of carbonation. Good mouthfeel and tingle. Very nice triple.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
A bit fruity. This one I could actually drink. A hint of sourness. Better than Don de Dieu.

Bugger it’s sweet.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Yeasty bread aromas with a hint of spice, sweet wort and malty flavour with more delicate spice and esters. Good smooth and long finish, reminded me of La Chouffe which is a good thing.

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.
