"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."

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.

Itís like Trois Pistoles + Duvel + Hoegaarden White. Basically a pale version of Trois Pistoles with witbier spices. Quite good, like a really strong witbier, but more complex.

A cloudy, pale gold in appearance. It had a large, frothy white head and lots of champagne-like bubbles. It reminded me somewhat of a white beer. Its taste is slightly sweet & fruity. I found it to be very enjoyable.

UPDATED: MAR 25, 2003 750 ml caged and corked bottle, best before 10-24-05 date. Pours a pale cloudy yellow color with a lot of floaties, nice white frothy head that leaves a clingy lace in my glass. Has a clean bannana and spicy lemon aroma. Sweet and fruity flavors that dry out, nice crisp and clean finish, another great ale by this brewery.

An Excellent trippel. I havent had many trippels but it is the best Iíve had so far. Very strong in alcohol- yet it is only slightly noticable in the aroma. Many spices in the aroma including coriander, clove, pepper, and maybe cumin. Awesome appearance! Nice golden hazy look with a medium head. (must drink in the propper belgian glass) Fizzy and carbonated but not overly so- which makes it more drinkable. Reminds me somewhat of a delerium tremens but this is much much better. Lots of belgian biscuit and aromatic malts in the flavor to balance out all the spices. Iím assuming some hallertau or saaz was used but in moderation. Yeasty, almost breadlike taste and aroma comes through very well, but is not overbearing. As it warmed, a little more bubblegum flavors came through in the flavor. The beginnign flavor is sweet yet slightly acidic, but the finish leaves you wanting another sip. One of the best belgians from one of the most diversified and distinguished Brewery of Belgian Ales

UPDATED: DEC 30, 2004 Great beer! Very carbonated almost to the point of being annoying. Cloudy blond reminescent of a hefe-weizen. Strong alcohol aroma and taste with a strong dose of spice. Almost like a mix of a wheat beer and a champagne. Great beer overall.
