First, let me say, "a bottle conditioned belgian tripel in a twist top bottle?" Yes, it is. Huge frothy white head, sour malt aroma. Taste of spice and yeast. A high quality tripel. I do not think the alcohol is over pronouced but the again I dont drink much under 8%. It could be that other had it to soon, this will probably age very well.

UPDATED: AUG 16, 2003 an old favourite that got me turning towards great beer. one of unibroue's better tripel style beers with good sweet and spiciness(cardamom? pepper?) and yeasty sloburn finish.

Smells much like the Blanche de Chamblay, and looks similar in the glass; citrus with some spice in the nose and hazy yellow with a medium head in the eyes. Very lemony (and sweet) flavor with good spice and noticable alcohol, especially in the finish. Quite nice.

This beer pours up with an incredibly boisterous white head over a cloudy golden body. The aroma has strong notes of citrus, reminiscent of a hefeweizen with a wedge of lemon in it. There are no esthers to speak of, however. Instead, the beer is noticeably oppy, although I have noticed it more due to the hefe aroma. It feels smooth in the mouth, but thin.

Insanely active head. Big airy foam. It was difficult to pour it softly enough to keep it under control, but from the taste and the lack of foamy at opening, it wasnít infected. Aroma is lemon on top of apricots. Light lemony/apricot flavor that rides on a noticeable malt backbone. Has a little of the cottony mouthfeel but not enough to hurt the drinkability. Probably the best Belgian golden ale Iíve tried.

I think it resembles a weaker version of maudite. Not as strong but goes down smooth. Sweet, no aftertaste. I think iíd rather have Maudite but still a great beer.
