2.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 12/20
Beer pours a pale golden color with little to no head. The flavor is VERY, very unique and the spice is definately present from the first sip, but not overly pleasant. The finish is stong and surprisingly bitter for a Belgium beer. I was completely unimpressed by this beer, but it is unique.

330 ml bottle. Pours light cloudy brown with a beautiful white head. Aroma of apples and other fruit. Spicy taste with strong bitter hops that linger. A very good, but not great tripel.

A fantastic tripel. Refreshing, strong, goes well with so many foodstuffs, and is very drinkable too, with deep & complex flavors and aroma. For me this is the tripel by which all other tripels are benchmarked.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
I don’t know why, but I don’t feel this beer as much as others do. It looked great, but the smell was just okay, the palate was just a bit too carbonated, and the flavor was full, but a little thin. I will try it again under different circumstances to see if this was just a fluke, but in the meantime...

Bottled. Trappist Goblet. Thin waning head with an aesthetically pleasing color and carbonation. Round, full mouth feel. Spicy flavor with a dry and bitter hop finish. Not a personal favorite from Belgium, no guarantees on freshness but it is still enjoyable.

White head with some lacing. Hazy, straw color. Aroma is malty with hints of nut (almond). The intiail sweetness is complex and fruity, with alcohol sweetness very present. Strong bitter hop finish at end. I found the body to be very full and the beer to give me an almost buttery feeling as well. This is an excelent example of what a tripel is ment to be.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Hazy dark gold. Full frothy white head. Sweet musty fruity aroma with some yesty spice. Taste is a little strongly spiced at first, but it is really good after initial palate acclamation. Sweet fruity, bitter apples, estery spicy yeast, excellent. A great belgiam beer I am glad to have available to me!

Aroma: Musty, malty, spicy, fruity, very nice. Complex.
Appearance: Nice white head, cloudy, darker blond color.
Flavor: Silky smooth, sweetish malt is lovely. Also, the spiciness and fruitiness that was in the nose is also present. Some warming alcohol.
Palate: Way to drinkable, dangerous! Alcohol is very evident however.
Overall: Man, absolutely excellent beer. Very drinkable and flavorful.

3.8 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
A quite bitter aroma of orange. Looks like Jaffa for those who know what it is. Very foamy on the palate. Taste of orange zest and yeast.
