Great, thick, creamy, strong brew from Unibroue. Nice balanced fruity flavors come together with the high alcohol.

Pours a hazy light yellow with a large amount of foamy white head. Aroma is spicy apricots, cloves, oranges, and sweet malts. Flavor is very smooth and sweet without any abrasively sweet flavors I sometimes associate with tripels. Instead I found it to be very well balanced, first with an incredibly sweet orange, sugared fruit flavor then with a slightly spicy finish. Overall, I found it to be quite enjoyable.

ALLOVATE (2619) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - JUN 18, 2005
UPDATED: JUL 25, 2005 Tasted this one late into a cold winter’s night. Right choice as it had an uncharacteristically warming alcohol feel to it that did it’s job in keeping me cosy. Poured into a short tulip glass just below room temperature, a good-sized dense off-white head formed atop an opaque deep gold body. The head lasted the distance, added texture to the mouth feel and left a lovely ’Belgian lace’ down the glass. Biting spicy alcohol phenols initially hit dead into the olfactory nerves, and sent a flow through my body. This waned a little in the glass to be replaced with sweet toffee and vanilla notes, cloves and light fruity esters. Creamy and smooth in the mouth, medium bodied and light in carbonation. Well balanced and blended flavours, spicy and peppery across the tongue. Leafy dry hops, low in bitterness and background to the vanilla, toffee, creamed honey and phenolic alcohol feel of this warming, smooth Tripel. A treat of a beer and one I am sure to enjoy again, throughout the colder months.

UPDATED: JAN 19, 2007 Orange color with big creamy, long lasting head. Lots of fruits and spices. Strong malts. I love the aroma. Excellent, and remarkably smooth for such a high alcohol content. The only knock on the beer is its high price locally, which is $7.45 for rthe corked 750 ml bottle.

The beer pours a cloudy pale yellow colour with abundant white froth that lingers on the head. The odor is citrusy and tangy. There exists delightfull flavours of lemon and honey in the midst of heft. It’s got a full body mouthfeel with an alcohol presence. I really enjoy this one and will try it again real soon.

Poured hazy tarnished brass with big dense creamy white head, lasts and leaves nice lacing as it recedes. Wonderful spice nose with apple, raisins, cinnamon, nutmeg, currants, apricots, leather and dark sugar. Tastes of clove, rose hips, currants, blackberries, apple, yeast and alcohol, followed by nice light malt and a big wallop of hops. Nice and bitter, spicy with some fruit tartness. Not a sessioner and perhaps a real autumn brew, but nonetheless a truly great one.

Very cloudy perfect orange color with little to no white head. Semi transparent. Lots of hay in the aroma and i also get lots of warm butter. Wierd burnt grass bitterness, also buttery, slippry and lemony.

750mL bottle. The End of the World pours a hazy straw yellow with an effervescent appearance and a small white head. Aroma is very malty with complementary malt and spice. A tad of sourness looms in the nose as well. The flavor is also big in malt and fruit and peppery spice. A refresshing slight sourness appears in the flavor too.The mouthfeel is moderately bodied and possibly overcarbonated though that seems characteristic of the lighter colored golden belgians. Another great belgian example from the Canadians.
