"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."

Frank (2927) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - APR 22, 2003
Bright golden. Ever-so-slightly hazy. Surprisingly thin head for Unibroue. Light yeast esters in the nose--banana, cloves, maybe a touch of pepper. Very fine, smooth carbonation. Medium to full bodied. Silky mouthfeel. A sharp tart bite up front. Mellows quickly and beautifully. More bananas in the middle with some slight malt sweetness. Definite wheat notes. Lightly bitter finish with a pronounced note of cloves. Refreshing and deliciously complex.

This is some good stuff. Loads of citrus, has an incredible finish. Nice mix of spices.

kumite56 (471) - Cordova, Tennessee, USA - APR 11, 2003
A nice tripel and a decent beer to make my 100th beer rated on RateBeer. (Wish it were Westvleteren instead but it will do). Yeasty, loaded with that citrusy hoppy aroma but a nice balance of sweetness and malt in the finish. Spicy and flowery in taste. A good beer and one on my repurchase list.

desurfer (1219) - Melbourne, Florida, USA - APR 10, 2003
Hazy gold body, huge frothy white head. Aroma of lemon and citrus. Flavor of alcohol and spice, some notes of citrus fruit, maybe orange. Smooth palate with a dry, mellow finish. Another great brew from Unibroue.

Nate (3727) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 9, 2003
Sweet, honey like aroma, musky. Light wheat/yeast profile with citrus. Vapory. Low hops. Sour cherry aroma after pouring sediment. Nice white foamy lacing head atop slightly cloudy butterscotch-orange liquid. Medium effervescence - light on the tongue. Medium silky watery body. Lightly sweet but it sticks with you in the finish and after. Citrus,wheat,yeast and small pleasant bitterness. Fruity sweet in the back of the throat. A little alcohol. A little more bitterness after pouring sediment. Nice beer.

tkaufman (129) - Lewis Center, Ohio, USA - APR 8, 2003
Bright golden color with a nice white head. Aroma of clove and coriander. Flavor was very good with a good complex mix of clove, coriander, malt and a little bitterness. A very good brew.

msutequilaman (84) - Troy, Michigan, USA - APR 7, 2003
Very cloudy, caramel-orange color. Well-defined citrus flavor (oranges?) Spices and yeast flavors abound. Not for the faint of heart, although the alcohol content does not overwhelm you. Overall, a pretty good Tripel.

I think this is one of the best Triple's made, it is a great beer. Very drinkable...

pivo (2571) - GERMANY - APR 3, 2003
Fruit highlighted nose of oranges and a little spicy too. Rich gold colr and a huge rocky spongy head. Apricot-like maltiness, like french-vanilla ice cream. Full body and a creamy texture. Alcohol is pretty well hidden, but there is a pleasant throat-warming effect.

This beer has a brilliant glow, intoxicating aroma, and refreshing zest. I'd drink this beer under any conditions but it really hits the spot after a cold day on the slopes of Monte Sainte Anne. Don't drink the bottom or the 4th fermentation will occur in your stomach!
