3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
UPDATED: FEB 17, 2011 Bottle. Cloudy yellow colour. Big, semistable head. Alcoholic fruity aroma. Very peppery flavour. Distinct bitterness. Flavour is a lot drier than the aroma suggests.
Bottle, 9.5%. 4 years past BB date. The aroma is a little papery, but also mildly malty. Dark amber colour with small black pieces floating in it. Small creamy white head. The flavour is a good mixture of distinct alcohol notes and a good bitterness. A little spicy sweetness in the finish. Well-rounded and holds up fine after four years.

Very nice beer, nice glazy golden colour. Very nice aroma, and a very nice taste. Sour in the beginning, sweet in the end. Dry in the end.

A much less quality beer than its little brother the dubbel. A[pearance is nice with a frothy off white head on a golden body. Aroma is heavily of yeast and flowery hops. The initial taste is failry sweet and the finish bitter and a little harsh. Lots of better tripples out there but drinkable none the less.

Cloudy orange pour, huge head, initial aroma was yeasty bread dough and malt,the first taste has a tart sourness immediately evident, then a nice satisfying sweetness settles on the tongue.Has sort of a rough feel on the palate. Alcohol makes its presence known, not quite as sweet as other tripels, and noticably drys out at the end. I like the Dubble better

Bottle...wonderfully hazy orangish pour with a generous white fluffy head. Yeastly citrus nose, with some spice. Grapefruit start with a hint of banana and clove. Nicely peppery with some spiciness also. Great bite. A nice tripel.

High white head that disappears slowly, on top of an orange-gold body. Very nice aroma, pretty spicy. Flavour is spicy too, with a bitter aftertaste. A blonde with an attitude!

Bottled. 11.2 oz. Yellow/Orange color. with exuberant head. Fruity aroma. Full mouthfeel. Spicy but a little too peppery with an astrigent bitter taste which I do not find appealing. Still good for its style. Multiple tastings.

Fruity, spicey, and some alcohol. A very enjoyable beer. Nothing to go absolutly nuts over, but still a great solid beer.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Light gold, cloudy, looks like a wheat beer. Strongly flavoured nose with herbs and nettles. Powerful and sweet palate but seem a bit alcohol driven and fraction disjointed. Finishes with a lick of cinamon.
