"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 hazy golden orange, lively carbonation that settles quickly and hangs around for the whole glass. Aroma has yeast, pear, citrus, celery. The first sip hits hard. There's some yeast flavor, a bit of malt, soft and sugary sweet, alcohol in the finish. You can feel this beer warming you up- not a great choice for a warm summer night. But on the other hand I love tripels, so maybe the rating is a little biased. I'm impressed, especially considering that the first time I had this over a year ago (before I starting drinking real beers) I thought this beer more closely resembled smoked ham than anything else. My tastes have changed I guess.

Shag (2637) - Chattanooga, Tennessee, USA - AUG 1, 2003
UPDATED: OCT 21, 2003 Aroma is pears and apricots. Appearance is murky yellow. Flavor is spicy with some citrus fruit. Overall a decently flavorful belgian blond similiar to alot of Unibroue's beers. Not bad.

UPDATED: NOV 10, 2003 It always amazes me how these Tripels can be so much smoother and more drinkable than the Dubbels. Unibroue hit the mark with this one. Much better this time around.

jgb9348 (4845) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - JUL 26, 2003
Crazy light pale blonde colour with a brilliantly white thick head. The colour is unusually light for a tripel, but would look good for a belgie white. Aroma of wheat, yeast, corn and bananas. Once again, more of a white style than a tripel. Good thick mouthful, and pretty sharp initially...yeast, sugars and spices make up the taste. The palate is pretty drying, some of the hop characteristics come out in the aftertaste, but thats about it. Basically, a big let-down, and yet another by Unibroue. I had a 750 mL bottle purchased at Southtown Beverage in Rochester, New York.

BroueNeault (158) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 25, 2003
UPDATED: JAN 4, 2004 A good one ! A pale and cloudy yellow colour, a nice fruity aroma and a good yeasty/malty taste. Maybe just a bit too sweet. Perfect for cold evenings.

papajohn (1249) - San Diego (Mira Mesa), California, USA - JUL 24, 2003
I untwisted the wire and the cork was gone! Pours cloudy pale gold with a frothy off white head into my Duvel glass. Lively carbonation. Aroma is spicy and yeasty. Temperature is 56 degrees F. Flavor is sweet, spicy (orange, coriander, and clove), lightly bitter with some alcohol presence. Finish is somewhat acidic and kinda dry. Long mouth watering aftertaste. The 9% ABV makes it's self known. I like it !!!

One of the best beers i've ever had. Just one question, where are they hiding this alcohol?! I certainly can't taste it, but after 3 beers, i can sure feel it! Way to go Unibroue.

Esters from high gravity fermentation combined with alcohol, fruit and candy in the nose. A very smooth drinking beer despite the high alcohol.
