3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Orange, light-coloured beer, very carbonated to extremely dense, finebubbled white head. Very fruity nose, slightly but obviously spicey, grapes and coriander. Very much coriander in the taste, fruity-flowery character, gradually becoming very dry, high attenuation despite some restsugars. Good balance dry-sweet. Medium bodied. Much more spiced than memory had it; just too spicey for being really good.

Bottle. I bought this one for the 2004 beer exchange. pours a hazy golden with a nice big bubbled head. Looks like great carbonation as I can still see bubbles rising as I type. A sour and sweet nose (one of those almost indescribable only Belgian style aromas). Nice medium body, but a little metallic on the taste this time. I did not notice this the first time that I tried this one. Might be what I had for dinner. Still has nice alcohol burn (not nearly as much as it should for its 9%) and a sweet spicy bite. Notes of peach and apricot along with a sweet straw taste. Very nice beer and the metallic leaves after a few drinks. Must have been the tomato sauce I had for dinner. I really like this beer.

A very good example of the style. Crisp and refreshing, medium bodied on the palate.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Hazy gold with a big frothy head. Big aroma of spice, red grape, and biscuit. Might could use some aging, as this just seemed far too sweet to me and could use some balance. Still very enjoyable, but it makes it hard to finish one.

This was the beer that pushed me to seek more of the same. It pours a beautiful cloudy golden with a fine bubbly head. Aroma is striking. Flavors are complex and exquisite that bite you at teh back of the mouth. Definitely a beer fit for the Last Days!

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
750mL bottle. Came off too sweet for me, I think to taste proper it has to be aged for a long time, but one would have to age it themselves. Still a very good sweet beer, almost like a hefeweizen with more of a sugar taste on top. Doesn’t taste at all like there’s alcohol in it..

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: JAN 26, 2006 12oz - Sweet aroma that likes to linger in my nose makes the taste last longer. Bright hazy gold with medium head (wrong glass again I think). Lacing hangs around after each drink. Taste is sweet and fruity that masks the ABV exteremly well. Very smooth drinkable tripple. 12/08/04 3.4=5,3,7,4,15
Sweet aroma of candi sugar, yeast, vanilla, and coriander. A bueatiful pour produces a solid white head thay stays for a long time leaving tons of lacing on it’s departure. Cloudy yellow/orange color with champange like bubbles. The taste is also sweet with same flavors as aroma plus some citrus undertones. Very smooth with a tart aftertaste. Much better now that my palate is more mature.

Hazy dark gold with a big fluffy white head. Sweet candi sugar nose. The outstanding flavors are pepper, cloves, banana and citrus, though I can also taste vanilla. Finish has a hop kick and a mild alcohol burn. Nice trippel.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Golden cloudy with a white head dissipating quickly leaving chunks of foam floating around. Aroma is quite hoppy, yeasty and fruity with hints of spices and flowers. Flavor is much sweeter than the aroma made me expect. Starts sweet and fruity with some yeast tartness, spices (pepper and cloves) and a dry slightly bitter hoppy finish. Very well balanced. Nice warming sensation. Would definitely get some more.

One of my most favorite beer. A must for those who like triples. Avery drinkable beer for the ABV.
