COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottle conditioned.
"The end of the world. The excellence of triple fermentation through a blend of special yeasts gives this malt beverage an exquisitely robust flavor of exceptional refinement."

igel (196) - New Mexico, USA - SEP 3, 2004
Appearance: pours a bright straw yellow with a white head, light effervescence and a slight chill haze. Head retention is low and the lace is full and sticky. Aroma: tart, hoppy, fruity esters and bubblegum. Taste: smooth and sweet and peppery with a hop bite and a dry tart finish. Mouthfeel: medium bodied, creamy, smooth, crisp, low in effervescence, and a lasting astringent bitterness. IMHO: A good representation of the style, but a Duvel beats it on many fronts.

frink (467) - coquitlam, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 3, 2004
Poured in a Duvel glass looks strikingly simaler to a Duvel, golden colour with a thick white everlastin’ head. The aromas are quite strong, estery, bananas, apples, pepper, corriander quite sniffable actually. the flavours are spicy unibroue yeast, apples, pepper and a full mouthfeel with a dry finish. A nice drink, well concealed alcohol.

Pigfoot (2268) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - AUG 29, 2004
Huge, billowy, lace, white-as-driven snow head, atop a perfectly golden, clear body. Aroma is a sweet array of fruit and spice, standing far above any other particular aspect. Delightful and heavenly. Is it "the End of the World", because it enters us into the next? Citrusy flavor stands on top, with dazzling hops and a marvelous sparkling sensation on tastebuds. Body is light, and extraordinarily uplighting. This brew handily earns it’s rep as the Canadian stand-in for Duvel. A terrifically engaging, hoppy mouthfeel, and an exceptionally warming feeling make this ideal beer for any sort of celebration, such as Anniversarys, holidays, Wednesdays, midnights, 2:45 A.M.s, anytime you’re exultant that the world hasn’t ended, didn’t get fired, dog still loves you, etc., etc....

AlabastorJones (800) - San Francisco, California, USA - AUG 27, 2004
UPDATED: SEP 7, 2009 sweet fruit ester aroma, partially fogged golden/yellow color with a thin white head, spritzy banana flavor, honey, alcohol stands out but isn’t outrageous, sweet and bitter, beautiful floral finish, bought this on a whim hoping it was good, knowing that b/c of the brouery it probably was, and I was not let down, even though the label represents Michigan with a horribly broken wrist.

vanvenlo (1203) - Glen Iris, AUSTRALIA - AUG 24, 2004
7 May 2004 - Sampled AIBA 2004 - Pleasant fruit and yeast aromas. Cloudy deep yellow. Sweet fruit malt and spiritous, lovely mouthfeel.

Poured golden with a thick white head...smells malty and citrusy...tasted very malty and seemed quite mild given the 9%...rich thick finish...

jmuhops (669) - Winchester, Virginia, USA - AUG 22, 2004
Pours translucent gold with a large, smooth head. Very citrusy aroma. Sweet flavor with more of the citrus and a bit of hop bitterness coming through. Very slight alcohol taste. Good, but not as good as I expected--and definitely not as good as the Allagash Tripel.

jcc83 (137) - Athens, Georgia, USA - AUG 21, 2004
My first tripel. Poured a hazy, cloudy gold full of yeasty solids and a wealth of carbonation, capped by an abundant white head. Full aroma of strong citrus, crisp hops, and bready yeasts. Flavors were of pineapple, citrus, and a slight note of alcohol at the end, all dominated by a cloying sweetness. Being new to the Belgian styles, I was falsely expecting something darker and richer, and so I was was rather disappointed by this one. It struck me as something like a really good witbier, and thus fell short of my expectations.

dornoy (701) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - AUG 21, 2004
UPDATED: SEP 5, 2004 A refreshing fruity taste, citrus-like, but not sweet. Excellent on a hot day, as apéritif, or with sushi. I appreciate Unibroue's care for its customers: the bottle clearly indicates the best serving temperature and type of glass.

This beer did not live up to the expectations that I had. Iit poured that nice cloudy yellow hue with a soapy white head. The aroma was hoppy and full of citrus hints. The taste itself was quite good, though lacking in my opinion. While I have not had many abbey triples to base any comparisons, this beer would not be one that I would recommend.
