Ingredients: Water, barley malt, sugar, hops, yeast.
The aroma of this beer is agreeably gentle and is carried by a discreet bitterness while the balance between the malt and hops relies on fruity accents and a lightly fresh aftertaste.

This orange-colored ale poured with a massive white head. The flavor is malty and herbal, with a fruity finish. Not as good as the St. Bernardus tripel.

Bottle shared with and courtesy of ozujsko (thanks!)
Poured a nice hazy darker orange, with a thick medium sized head that went away slowly. The nose was... hmm... vitamins, dust, yeast, and some malt. The taste was malty and somewhat spicy, quite sweet, hints of wheat, artificial sweetener style finish... Hmm. I hoped for more. Itís a good beer, and ok for a Tripel, but I really liked the "regular" Bernardus Tripel, and was let down a bit by this.

voota (765) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - DEC 4, 2006
Slightly hazy golden with a large foamy white head. Aroma is light and fruity, some light eucalypt and caramel too. Balanced body, but not too exciting. Flavours of caramel and spicy hops. Some alcohol warmth combines with the sweetness in the finish. Pretty good, without being outstanding.

(750ml bottle) Large, rocky white head atop lightly hazed straw body. Aroma is moderately sweet, honey, herbal, orange, some alcohol. Taste is much the same. Soft, medium-full body.

hophead75 (2012) - Largo, Florida, USA - NOV 20, 2006
11.2 oz bottle. Hazy light brown. The aroma is full of fruit, malt, light notes of brown sugar, and candi sugar and spice. Taste is apples/pears, raisins, lightly bready, light spices, and more malt than I usually taste in a tripel. lightly spicy and smooth finish.

UPDATED: MAY 17, 2009 Deeply murky, spiralling orange tulip fresh off the boat. God bless the in-laws. Billowing fragrant suds and that evocative, subtly spicy Belgian perfume you canít quite put your finger on. Lethally silky fruit and spice. A sniff of lemon. Clove, banana, coriander, orange peel? Who knows. Who cares? And just look at that lacework. Belgian medicine out of the very top drawer (848517-4.2) UPDATE Bottle at The Penguin, probably a couple of years old. Had every expectation Iíd be rating this down, but it isnít going to happen. Fishbowl ruddy amber swirling with chunks beneath a billowing dense head. Sweet sweet honeyed pine and VERY grassy aroma with botanical spice, deep juicy hops and yeast, tender caramel maltiness, fruitbowl of shrivelled apricots and tangerines, including the wood and varnish. Succulent grassy tripel dusting with juniper and pine shavings; slick and honeyish but light years from the sweetshop. Good glowy booze, dried apricots, dandelion, apple peel. Some buttered Czechness, furniture and almond piping up once the headís climbed down an inch or so. Original rate stands. A corker.

kopestes (164) - Braine líAlleud, BELGIUM - NOV 5, 2006
0.33l bottle at home. Nice hazy golden color, tick white head. Fruity and yeasty aroma. Taste is sweet of malt with a spicy bitter twist in the middle and bitter hopy finish. Quite a good triple.

fonefan (40504) - VestJylland, DENMARK - NOV 4, 2006
Bottle. Light golden color with a dense off-white head. Unclear. Fruits, spice, yeast and some orange peel in the nose. Flavour is fruity and yeasty. Loads of spices and orange. Quite refreshing. Medium bodied. Has some light alcohol notes.

Nice lookiing beer, huge head with loads of lace, but the relative clarity of it reveals a lot of floaties. The initial sweet, candy and bubblegum flavor yields to an oddly bitter cereal- or cardboard-like flavor. It does kinda grow on you though. All in all a nice beer.
