4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Not inexpensive at $10.79 from my local North Coast Coop. Poured a cloudy gold with big and long-lasting white head and nice chunks of lacing. Nose of coriander, flowers, citrus, and fruits. Very smooth and clean mouthteel and flavors that dance on your tongue. Good dry finiish, Nice lookng, nice smell, nice palae, nice flavors, and a nice finish. Shucks, a nice beer.

A nice tripel. I was expecting a little more but this was still above average. Pour was a hazy gold with a little sediment. Aroma was fruity yeast. Taste was yeast with some spice with the classic dry finish I love about Belgians. Nice.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Very pale and cloudy with a big lasting head. Spice aroma. Taste is strong, sweet and tart with more spice and less fruit than other examples of this style. Long, somewhat dry finish. Noticeable alcohol, but for 9.5% its fairly well masked.
Not really a fan of this style, but as far as Tripels go, this is a favorite.

Light golden and hazy with a nice and lasting head, and I pour it in my new Westmalle glass. The aroma has notes of coriander. The flavour is sweet with notes of coriander, other spices, fruit and citrus. The alcohol is present, but only just, and I can imagine this would be better after another year or so. The finish is long and the notes from the flavour is present all the way through. A really nice trippel, one of the best I tasted at this point (April 05).

Sampled in the US prior to going to Brugge. Excellent beer and has an amazing color and flavor. Besides the wonderful head on it, the mouthfeel is most important as it goes down incredibly smooth and leaves a great aftertaste.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. This beer poured with virtually no head at all except for a few bubbles. The aroma is sweet with hints of dried fruits and honey. The color is a golden yellow with small floaties. Flavor is lightly sweet initially and develops into an alcoholic centered dry fruity finish. The palate is a bit watery with the duration continuing into an alcoholic flavor. Ok overall, but might need to try again with a different bottle as it seems different compared to the other ratings.
