3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Honey, marmelade in the glass. Slightly cloudy, hazy. The head starts massize, then quickley falls to a bubbling smaller size, leaving strong lacing on the glass. Taste of malt sweetness, a porridge with treacle taste. It has strong alcohol, bananna and almond marzipan. A spicy cinamon with a citric top note. Smooth in the mouth, with long acohol lingering for ages after you swallow. Too strong for me to really love, but a great beer.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Average head with a frothy with appearance. Good lacing left in glass. Light cloudy look with an amber/orange colour. Aroma was heavy spicy (pepper) with some tobacco and other notes as grain, straw and nuts. Full bodied with an average carbonation. Flavour was light sweet with moderated bitterness to it. Finish was long and complex. Very nice Tripel I must say.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle poured into red wine glass. Hazy shiny orange pour. Aroma is sweet / earthy, odd combo, but that’s what I got. The taste is good, though not in any way special. Finish was very yeasty.

UPDATED: MAY 26, 2008 33cl Bottle. Hazy golden colour with small sediment and a large white head that lasts with good lacing. Aroma of mild spice, earth and yeast. Rather intense tripel flavour but mellowed before finished. Enjoyable beer.

Douce et rugueuse en même temps. Fine, subtile elle picotte la langue et raffraichit même en hivers

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle; Nose is yeasty with a little banana, clove, and citrus; lightly hazed gold with a small white head; a tiny bit of tartness hits my tongue first, leading into the fruit and spices, ending with a nice bitter, with a tiny bit of alcohol, finish.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Drank in a trappist glass. Golden hazt poor with a nith thin sticky white head. Aromas of bananas, sweet bread, coriander, tangerines, alcohol... with a hint of butterscoth. Dry mouthfeel... creamy and balanced finish with a good bitterness to it. You can taste the hops somewhat creamy resin. You definitely cannot feel the 9.5 % in this belgian beauty.

I HAD HEARD ALOT ABOUT THIS AND WAS NEVER A BIG BELGIUM FAN SO THIS TO ME WAS JUST A REGULAR BEER THAT WAS HIGH IN ALCOHOL AND CITRUS FLAVOR.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: DEC 23, 2006 Bottle shared with my friend Brian. Pours hazy golden with a nice retentive white head. Nice yeasty and perfumy aroma, with notes of clove and citrus. Very nice mouthfeel, not too fizzy or rich. Flavor wheat malt, clove, pear, and banana with the right amount of sweetness. Slightly dry, but spicy finish with well hidden alcohol. I think this is very well balanced. A little tamer than some triples, but that is what I liked about this one.

2.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
11.6 oz bottle-Pours a cloudy golden color w/a small white head & good lacing. Full, sweet, floral aroma The dry flavor hits you right up front, doesn’t have the complex flavor levels one would usually associate w/a quility belgian. Spicy & dry mostly, some hops. Very average. Kind of a thin dry finish. You can drink it, but I wouldn’t seek it out. Disapointing.
