"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."

Cashazza (217) - Morganville, Maryland, USA - FEB 2, 2005
Had this one on New Years Eve ringing in 2005. A yellowish appearance and it was pretty flat. A good deal of lemons and other citrus fruit. Slightly sour aftertaste. A decent beer.

Crash (531) - Macomb, Illinois, USA - FEB 1, 2005
Yellow color with off-white head. A grainy malty taste that was good but, not as good as other Unibroue beers.

RateandPillage (426) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - JAN 30, 2005
Pours hazy yellow orange with good off-white head. Very yeasty aroma. Lots of wheat flavor as well as yeast. Highly carbonated, a bit dry, and maybe a bit thin. But, overall not a bad Tripel.

Nekronos (3646) - Xalapa, MEXICO - JAN 29, 2005
UPDATED: FEB 1, 2006 A little better than the Raftman, but once again, the palate was interfered with the flavor of the beer maudite. BUt I liked this one, even stronger.

Hooker (467) - Coquitlam, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 29, 2005
Cloudy pale straw colour. Can see sediment on the bottom of the bottle. thick rocky head that fades quickly. Dry yeast nose with slight fruit hints. Bitter yeasty taste with slight fruit notes.

Silphium (3179) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - JAN 24, 2005
Hazy orange body, medium persistent off-white head. Crackery aroma, spicy, with a touch of light fruit (white grape). Yeast-dominated flavor with breads, spice, and light fruit (again, white grape) finishing with a quick tart bite followed by the long yeast aftertaste. Pepper, cloves, and crackers are all here in classic Tripel fashion, but I like sweeter, fruitier examples.

jimlintott (13) - CANADA - JAN 20, 2005
UPDATED: JAN 31, 2005 Plenty of action here. I seem to have had a new taste experience with every swallow but mostly I was reminded of bananas. You donít really taste the alcohol but I definately felt it when standing up. The most fun Iíve had with a bottle of beer in a long time.

brentfeesh (1207) - Mansfield, Ohio, USA - JAN 17, 2005
12 oz. bottle. Pours with a white foamy head, pale gold with orange hints. The aroma is Belgian, sweet and spicy (cardamom and ginger) and also some vanilla (?). The flavor is sweet with banana and apricot. Lite spice presence. A bit sticky and long lingering. Just when it seems it might get to syrupy a very bright mineral fruit appears on the edges of my tongue and makes the finish a cleaner tasting treat.

mullet (849) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - JAN 17, 2005
Gold, clear, OK head (but not by Belgian standards). Fairly low carbonation for a Belgian too. Typical Unibroue aroma with some nutmeg and vanilla. Vinous, dry flavour, kinda like a very dry version of cask fruity lexia (itís makes ya sexier donít you know). Quite heady alcohol character too. Itís certainly not the beer I recall really impressing me about five years back, though in fairness my palate would also have developed a heap too.

IMtheOptimator (1161) - Bethel, Connecticut, USA - JAN 15, 2005
Pours golden with a white frothy head. Aroma is of dry grapes and spice. Taste is very dry grapes, not terribly complex. Dry bitter finish.
