4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
(Bottled) Opaque orange color with a large, quite tight and lacy head. Very fruity (apple, orange) and yeasty aroma with witbier-like, peppery and flowery spiciness. Extremely fruity, yeasty and peppery-orangey, acidic flavor. Bitter, flowery-hoppy and peppery finish. ABV is very well hidden. Medium-bodied palate with foamy carbonation. A very easily drinkable and refreshing, tasty tripel.

This poured out a murky golden orange with about a half-inch of white foam sitting atop the body. No lace was left as this was consumed. Aroma was very spicy with notes of a lemony zest and a bit of yeast as well. The taste stays true to the smell with spiciness really dominating with a touch of fruit over a doughy backbone. Lemon and apple notes were the most distinguishable. A nice spicy bitter after taste ending this lovely brew. Mouthfeel was bubbly with about a medium body. Drinkability was good and I would definitely have this again in the future. All around good brew.

UPDATED: JUN 16, 2005 Cloudy yellow with an enormous and lasting head. Yeasty aroma reminds me of a bakery with some citrus and just a hint of apples and spice. Rich sweet flavor with an alcohol finish. Citrus and spice in there as well. Very good stuff.

A solid tripel, especially for the price. I had this one on a beer trip back in March, so I donít remember the specifics too clearly, but it has high marks in my notebook.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Smells strongly of yeast, like most belgian tripels. Lovely cloudy golden color, no head. Tastes like most other trappist ales, but itís not trappist. Not bad, but not terribly impressive. Allagash tripel is better. Strong yeast and spice flavors. The alcohol is very well disguised, with a slight enjoyable burn at the back of the tongue. I enjoyed this, but would rather buy a different trappist the next time.

UPDATED: NOV 1, 2005 Itís been my favorite beer for quite a while now... Itís available almost everywhere where i live (Quebec city) and itís not too expensive. Fruity with spices and a hint of alcohol at the finish.
Kinda taste like honey too. I like the feel in the mouth with the carbonation.
The kind of beer that makes me realyy happy ;)

UPDATED: OCT 11, 2005 If this is the end of the world as we know it, I feel fine. This is a spectacular Belgian tripel of depth and character. Pours a muddy gold with a towering head. Glorious aroma shows curacao, grape juice, toffee, ginger and all-spice. Itís one of those wonderfully complex aromas that rewards each sniff with something new. Full-bodied and beautifully rounded. On the tongue it shows orange peel, honey, cloves and zesty hops - spice is the dominant theme. The 9% alcohol comes through in the swallow but carries it off better than most beers of this abv. A dry musky finish. (341ml bottle)
