(bottle) A very fizzy mouthfeel. Hint of apples - common in Belgians. Quite good, could use more flavor and less fizz.

Nice. I love these Tripels! Very much similar to St Bernieís Tripel which puts it right up there amongst enjoyable Belgian ales. Standard cloudy gold with creamy head and ultra-creamy mouthfeel, the two very positive things I associate with a Tripel. Hard to really go wrong otherwise. Excellent.

3.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tastes like a good yeasty wheat beer (yeasty no doubt because of the triple fermentation). Nice soft carbonation (but the bottle I had was left on the window sill, and it froze, with a little bit leaking out of the cork). A slight dryness about it, probably because of the sediment. Lots of hoppy prescences. Slight wine flavour, no doubt due to the high alcohol. Great packaging!

UPDATED: JUN 14, 2005 (Bottle 75 cl) Another Triple from Unibroue?? They seem to love the style... Orangey golden, hazy beer with a huge head and - again - lotís of carbonation. Probably the bottle fermentation adds to the CO2. Pronounced yeasty notes in both nose and aromas. Almost wheaty in itís malty softness. Excellent. 110704

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Tart/sour aroma with a solid alcohol presence. Some citrus, some bubblegum, some vomit. White champagne style bubbles upon the pour that quickly fizzle to a whispy ring around the edge of the glass. Very cloudy yellow body. Not much lace. Iíve had this once or twice before. I remember being a little afraid of the high alcohol and being frankly a little overwhelmed. I have tamed those demons. Very highly carbonated; effervescent like champagne. A very well made brew. Fairly sweet, although not too much so. Some fruit. Alcohol is subdued for 9%. I feel pretty good knowing I am drinking this out of the perfect vessel, a "La Fin Du Monde" logo tulip glass. A very good brew.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
An excellent and refreshing choice. Good full smooth flavor and stil veryl refreshing and light. There is a fruity-spicy taste - mainly a peppered apple taster, but several other flavors entering the mix. A bubbly medium bodied mouthfeel and a bold finish that leaves you wanting more. ($6.49/750ml)

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Its light orange and slightly hazy out of the big corked bottle. There is a very big white head which was unexpected. It was very very easy to drink. It tasted mostly of yeast which was a good thing. I detected banana in the finish, not alot of spice but there was some. Not my usual cup of tea either but it was good. It was pretty damn good.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: SEP 22, 2007 A nice beer which comes across as "Belgian lite." Characteristic yeasty aromas and a distinctive tripel body but a bit toned down. A very pleasant beer when you want Belgian but not so much of it.

4.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
UPDATED: JUL 13, 2007 Pours a nice hazy yellowish-orange color with littlte head. Smells of a hefe-weiss: cloves, banana, yeast. Spicy and fruity to the nose. Taste is banana with a touch of green apple, clove, and slight peppary taste. Very smooth and drinkable but the alcohol comes out of nowhere in the finish. Very good beer indeed.
