3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
750ML Bottle. Figured I would tackle this one tonight. Spicy aroma that matches the taste at first. Had a little citrus twist to it, but left a very smooth taste. Mild head that left quickly, white of course. I actually enjoyed this more than I thought I would granted the ratings. Gave a great buzz that dissapated quickly with no regret, granted the size of the bottle:) *watch out for that yeasty bottom. Will need to be spun*

On tap: Aroma is hard to pick up. A little spicey, a little hoppy I guess. Pours a hazy yellow with an ok head. Malty fruity flavor. Somewhat citrus with light hop finish. Lightly malty aftertaste.

the aroma is very strange, very bitter outhouse character, somewhat hard to explain. The taste is on the sweeter note, easy going, some spices but very little, it´s nicely balanced taste wise, but it´s lacking a bit of something .. not bad but not breathtaking for the style

Golden to orange in color. Tall off white head. Sweet apricot aroma with mild yeast and orange zest playing backup. Sweetish flavor with apricots and caramel hanging around. Some dry/yeasty notes. Full bodied and decent to end the night with.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours with a short white head and a hoppy, fruity aroma. The flavor is smooth and slighty sweet, with a hint of carbonation. As rickgordon says, Tripel Karmeliet with more carbonation. This is a good example of the Belgian Tripel style.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
This triple pours a yellow/amber color with large carbonation and a thick creamy head. The head diminishes quickly but leave a smooth layer of sticky lace. The smell is earthy, but somewhat fruity (cotton candyish)with a hint of cherries. The flavor has stong hints of alcohol, with a sweet start and a very quick dry finish- like a wine. Smoother and sweeter as it warms. The mouth feel is creamy and smooth with a somewhat dry finish.
IMHO: The temperature has a significant impact in the representation of the flavor and consistency. I really felt I had it at the best temp possible when I first tasted it, and was somewhat disappointed. As the beer warmed it became much smoother, sweeter and well balanced. A pretty good Belgian

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Medium sized offwhite head, good retention and a sticky, relentless thin sheet of lace left behind. Hazy gold/orange hued brew. Malty, lightly diacetyl nose. Medium body, fine carbonation. Medium sweet malt flavor, hints of bananna, caramel, faint nuttiness with bready undertones. Medium sweet finish. Nice quaff.
