4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a mostly clear and brilliant light gold with a sparkling head that quickly fades but never goes away and with a nice amount of lacing. Orange and Tangerine heavy in the nose when swirled to let some of the carbon monoxide you also get a burring sweetness. There are hints of orange peel and an earthy spiciness that come mostly from the yeast. Iím glad to know I can pick it up more often(for now)..

This beer pours a cloudy yellow with a white head that laces down the sides. Smells of sour oranges. Flavor is very light considering the heaftyness of this beer and has flavors of sour oranges and spices. This is a well made beer and very drinkable! Cheers!

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Nice pour from a bottle with a rich lasting head that laces all the way down the glass. Sharp nose with bitter orange and some peppery yeast. Well balanced flavors with just enough sweet to balance the citrus. This is an excellent beer and even still refreshing for such a big ale. Gob bless the monks.

Bottle, from Rileyís. Poured a clear straw-yellow. Nose of sweet carmel and yeast, with an almost cherry-tree smell on the finish. Very warm and medium to heavy bodied in my mouth. This beer continues to grow on me as it warms up, revealing more flavors including a nice blend of hoppy flavors.

UPDATED: NOV 11, 2013 Bottle. Clear goloden colour with bubbly thin white lasting head. Orange and yeasty nose with some cereal and some alcohol. Good in mouth slightly caramel flavour and some orange rind. Leads to a very hoppy finish . Not too many flavours but they are good and subtle. Nice tripel. 2005. Man was I dumb back in 2005. Bottle at Kipps Alehouse Folkestone. Clear gold lasting white head. Good peach and apricot. Just lovely in the mouth. Stupidly drinkable some hop bite on the finish. Excellent. Stand out tripel.

I find this the best trippel in Belgium, his taste is full. Itís a very strong beer, not only in percentage but also in taste. This was the first tripel ever brewn, i think it was in 1936 and itís still the best in my opnion. But i havenít drank trippels from out of belgium...

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: AUG 10, 2008 Served in Westmalle glass.
Warm yellow appearance, sligthly dim.
Nice, perfect head.
Aroma is wonderfully hoppy and spicy, refreshing.
This beer I liked to describe as royal or lordlike. It is the prefect tripel.
Palate is overwhelming (not because of a huge body but because of a dry cider-like, orgasmic sensation of perfect acidity), completely wonderful drieness and a flavour that reminds me of green apples and grapefruit.
