Killer Cork! almost took out my eye! ..Pours with very nice lacing, Has a big white fluffy marshmallow head

wow! this is delicious original gansta stuff! nectar!

The ABV is very well hidden! One of the most easy flowing and mellow-ist beers i’ve had

lots of sweet flavours, a good blend of fruits

Overall, very delicious, a great buy, almost a shame to drink it!

Aroma is a full fruity classic Belgian ale scent. Color is a hazy pale gold with a bit of sediment floating around. Carbonation is good with a loose white head. Taste is creamy and sweet. Starting with a medium body it goes down smooth with an almost creamy feel. Finish comes out with a sweet fruit flavor reminiscent of dried cheery, then a nice Belgian yeast taste, this is backed by a mild bitterness that ends a bit dry. The after taste has a slight alcohol taste and a very warming feel. This is one very good Tripel, I love it.

While not a ‘true’ Trappist Tripel (those made by one of the few remaining Trappist breweries of monastic origin), this is still one absolutely astounding example of this brew style that should be tried by all! The first thought that raced into my mind once I started savoring this brew was, “Damn freakin’ good, mate!!” Next time I’m having this brew, it is going to be with some of my Creamy Chicken over hot buttered noddles. Now THATS gonna be a dinner worth the wait!!

jimhilt (2377) - Bow, New Hampshire, USA - APR 16, 2005
Pours a three-finger cream head that goes slowly and leaves a very good lace. Cloudy, light amber color. Light-medium carbonation and medium bodied. Nose is cidery, starts on the sweet side, finishes mellow, the high ABV is not noticable, taste is difficult to describe but its good! Excellent triple. 750ml bottle for $7.20 from Colonial Spirits Acton, Ma. Brewery on label is Leyerth.

I love this beer. It was one of the first Belgium beers I tasted. I prefer the Ale style with it’s floral bouquet and light brown sugar spice taste. A great experience visually and throught the taste buds.

Hops and spice in the nose with some sweet malt as well. Very nice. Pours with a hazy golden-orange color with a fluffy white head. Some spiciness in the flavor along with a full, sweetish maltiness. Some clove, some candy - bubblegum? Well balanced bitterness. Alcohol is well cloaked, but becomes apparent at the finish; and is definitely present mid-goblet. Good firm body and carbonation level. An exceptional beer in all regards.

A very hazy cloudy orange-ish hue in the pour, with a big creamy head. This one tasted so good to me. Some tropical rum flavors, with granny smith apples, guava and passionfruit. In the backdrop is a kind of doughy, malty taste, but has a bit of a hoppy aftertaste, but very subtle. This one is incredibly tasty and never disaapoints.
