"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."

Pours a cloudy orange/gold. The dull color is the reason for the poor grade for appearance. Nice off-white, fizzy head that stays and good lacing. Very complex yeasty aroma. Lots of alcohol in the aroma and flavor (9% ABV) that also create warm burps. The flavor consists of spices and citrus. An ever-so-slight bitterness at the end. Lots of carbonation. Definitely a beer that stands on its own two feet.

bb (8270) - Alamo, California, USA - JUL 11, 2005
Bottle. 2004 vintage. Light straw-golden color with a white head. Sweet malt aroma with some cansy and spice. Banana and spice flavor with some malt underneath. Touch of fruitiness (peach?). VERY dry finish. Hides alcohol well. Honey tones. Much better when it warms a bit.

OldGrowth (3123) - the Containment Area, North Carolina, USA - JUL 4, 2005
Bottle, from aceboxer. Good nose, Sweet, citrus, lemon, yeasty, doughy, spice, clove pepper. 1st pour was tad hazy pale golden yellow color, 2cd pour was hazier with some sediment good head that faded quickly. Sweet tart flavors, like aromas with a peppery, banana, has medium body, lite creamy mouthfeel, dry tart finish. This is nice, 9% is somewhat masked, though this bottle was given to me about 6 months ago, so maybe it mellowed. Not big on tripels, so I don’t know how to place it overall. Damn tasty though.

TomDecapolis (4618) - Milton, Delaware, USA - JUL 1, 2005
Had as part of a flight at the Washington House Unibroue beer tasting. This was the first I had in the flight. Poured a cloudy golden in color with a sweet citrus aroma. Sweet tartness in the flavor. Nicely carbonated that left a tingle on the tongue. A very solid tripel. This one probably would blend a little better with age.

fatty (363) - Perkiomenville, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 30, 2005
Pours hazy yellow with floaties and a carbonated body. Very large white foaming and bubbly head. Aroma of spice. Warm, spicy flavor with lots of pepper and a slight hint of candy sweetness and earthy notes toward the end. Carbonated body with full mouthfeel. Lingering pepper and belly-warming finish.

UPDATED: MAY 13, 2007 Bottle, served in Duvel glass at Fresh Starts, Flossmoor, IL. Cloudy yellow, with a fluffy white head. First smell impression is of a bit of orange juice, then diluted honey. Beyond the usual candi sugar taste is something complex and hard to distinguish; a horsey bit, perhaps, and staled hops. As I go further down, it gets pretty heady. Picks up a bit of a wit note, too, leading to a white wine finish. The bottle was dated "best by 11-17-07," so I’m guessing it’s pretty young, and may have been different just a few months later. Very expertly poured by the bartender to leave most of the yeast in the bottle. A most excellent and intriguing brew.

hazy orange-yellow with active carbonation supporting a persistent white head that slowly reduces to a cap and never disappears. Beautiful lacing is seen on the glass. scents of banana and clove waft around a lovely bouquet of light fruit, apples and pears to my nose. Sweet with a spicy backround. Lovely. Explosive musty fruitiness that finishes dry and bitter. Oh God, yes. I can die a happy man. Yeasty, fruity, vinous, alcoholic, oh this is beer I live for. Apple and pear predominate in this vinous, alcoholic brew. Oh yes. Just like a good Belgian Strong Pale Ale. Wonderfully attacking with carbonation and not watery. Excellent. Is this heaven? Dear God, this is good. It looks as good as any trappist and tastes as good, too. Damn I love this beer, especially when it warms. Oh thank God for Unibroue.

Storm (2684) - Amager, DENMARK - JUN 28, 2005
33 cl Bottle. Yellow to orange in colour, nice white head. A little sour in the aroma, and some fruit. Great flavour, with a god mouthful and hint of apples.

DanielBrown (4340) - Birmingham (via Leicester), West Midlands, ENGLAND - JUN 26, 2005
Bottle at Charlie’s Beer, Montpellier. Hazy blonde, with very little head. Sweet, lemony aroma. Like a citric wit, but with a real bite to finish. Sharp and simultaneously sweet alcohol, which lingers. I like the beginning, and I like it overall, but for me, the strength detracts from a good start and flavour.
