well unibroue strikes again. They just make awesome belgian style ales. in fact i like all of theirs more than any real belgians. but they all kinda taste the same. this is a great beer but the surprise value is low.

Pours a cloudy honey amber color with willing head. Sweet candied malts and fruit tones in aroma. This drinks as one of the best Belgium triples around; complex fruit and hop flavor, smooth malts, fantastic palate and sweet lingering finish. The brewmasters at Unibroue definitely got this one right!

Hunsell (403) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - JUL 24, 2005
Hazy orange with a white head that goes away pretty quickly, leaving room for a lace. Aroma of (green) apple, lemon and orange. Pretty sweet taste, really sweeter than most Belgian Tripels, more like some Dutch Tripels that tend to be on the sweet side as well. Finishes nicely softbitter and alcoholic with a very small acidic bite. All in all nice brew.

UPDATED: OCT 29, 2006 The other reviewers have gotten to the core here - "simple but complex". Pours from a 12 oz. bottle with an orange color and very thick, white head. The smell is pungent and takes a while to separate. Hmmm, okay, hereís some intense Belgian-yeasty stuff - oh wait, thereís some spices, too. While the smell is complex, the taste is relatively straightforward - sweet, then spicy than moí sweet. A very,very good brew (but not something youíre going to drink four of in one night, though). This is the best thing the local major supermarket chain gets, and thus the most acccesible quality brew, so Iíve had time to do the math. Recognize.

Excellent brew. Complex yet simple. Sweet flavor. A little fruity, but not overly disgusting. One of the best beers Iíve ever tasted. Plus, 9% ainít bad.

Simple but profound artisan yeasty aroma with some brandy analogues. Beer is of a deeper golden color with plenty of spontaneous carbonation (but not compared to some other tripels); has a solid off-white head that lasts to the end of the glass. Flavor is a refreshing surprise as it totally transcends the basicality of the aroma/appearance. The first sip brings one inside an old brewery, and the second sip elevates on the high carbonation. Flavor elements are very fruity-malt but plenty of hops shine through as do some spices, perhaps cardamom and clove. At even a slightly cooled temperature the alcohol is mostly invisible except on the finish -- which has an extremely raw quality overall, like back to the walls of that old brewery. All in all, a profound experience ... as of the first sip.

Pours a cloudy golden body with an insane head. Aroma is fruity... smelling oranges, and definitely yeasty. Taste is spicy and yeasty. The finish is fairly dry with some alcoholic kick, but doesnít feel like a 9er. However, when this warms, the alcohol is almost the only thing there... Nice complexity here, enjoyable brew.

UPDATED: OCT 17, 2005 Poured a cloudy golden-straw color with a lasting though thin, fizzy white head. The aroma is of spices, citrus, pinneaple, pepper and yeast among others. The mouthfeel is thick but very tingly from the massive carbonation and tart flavors. As with the nose, the predominant flavors are those of spices and citrus, but the yeast and high alcohol content (9%) are also distinctively present. It leaves a sweet and satisfying aftertaste and a nice warm feeling which Iím sure those Canadians appreciate. Very tasty.

Similar to a hefeweizen rather than a tripel I felt. There is a big spicy clove taste as well as loads of citrus and banana. There is a high alcohol taste which kind of separates it from a wheat beer. The aroma is sweet, malty, and alcoholic. Its an intense beer, you get to feel the alcohol. Loads of yeasty flavour. Huge foamy head on a cloudy brown/yellow colour. Nice lacing.
