3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
11.2oz bottle dated 10/04/09. Poured a nice hazy orange color but with a lot of carbonation. Interesting flavor with wheat and citrus. Alcohol taste is definitely noticeable. Finish is sharp and fairly bitter.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Admittedly, I screwed up and got this instead of the dubbel next to it, so it was a surprise when I poured it. It was a cloudy golden straw color with a thick, somewhat-soapy head. Not getting a strong distinguishable scent out of it. A bit of spice and sweet - but nothing I can exactly point out.
There is a bit of spiciness and pepper in the taste, some sweetness to it too. Even with the carbonation, had a creamy mouthfeel.
It is a pretty good beer, but was a bit underwhelmed. Might be due to me wanting (and expecting a dubbel), so will try it again. I prefer the Chimay

Goede tripel. Mooie kleur, volle schuimkraag, frisse geur, karakteristieke bittere smaak.

33cl bottle, served in Trappist chalice. Poured a cloudy golden yellow with a 3 finger white head. Aromas of caramel, vanilla, banana, cloves. Taste a continuation of the aromas, very sweet spicy, fruity mouthfeel. Medium body with a creamy bittersweet banana finish. Very good!

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle from Appellation Wines. Pours light gold with a creamy white head. Aromas of apricot, banana and citrus with floral notes. Taste is nicely balanced between the bitter fruit and spicyness and the soft sweetness from the pale candy sugar used in brewing. A very generous beer with a long finish.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Slightly cloudy straw colored pour with thin, but lasting white foam top. I bought two bottles, so hoping the other is different. Lots of pepper dominates the aroma. in there somewhere is some banana and bubblegum, but pepper and/or clove overwhelms. Flavor is unfortunately very similar. Hard to discern the subleties, but there is some malt sweetness. Finishes with a bite from the pepper.

4.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Infinita complessità. Fruttata, morbida, dolce e alcolica in bocca. Enorme ampiezza. Si chiude improvvisamente sul palato, amarezza del luppolo molto pronunciata.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours cloudy golden with a big foamy white head. Fruity nose and initial aroma, balanced hops, spices and champagne. Light sweet and light bitter, all very well balanced. Creamy mouthfeel, full body, high in carbonation but pleasant. High in alcohol as well, but very warming. Top-notch.
