3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
(Draught at Akkurat, stockholm) Colour is straw yellow, with a frothy lasting head. Nose is fruity, yeasty and spicy with hints of lemon peel. Taste is fruity and spicy (can’t put my finger on any particular spice though) with hints of citrus. Balanced sweetness and balanced bitterness in the finish. Very good.

A yellow, little hazy coloured one with a large white head. A very spicy aroma, accompanied with some fruity hints like some citrus and a light yeast alcoholic undertone. Full body, with a finish that is quiet bitter with again a slightly alcoholic undertone. I thought this was a decent tripel.

Bottle sampled with Beerded_one. Pours pale golden with an average sized white head. Aroma of citrus, pine, and spices. Flavor is smooth, citrus, pine-like, belgian spices and some bitter hoppy dryness in the finish. Good body, good brew.

UPDATED: MAY 8, 2006 Bottled. Golden pour and a rich creamy white head. Delicious yeasty aroma with notes of coriander, citrus, and funk. Tastes tart, light bitterness, moderate-to-heavy citrus and acid. Heavily spiced with some acidic texture. Smooth feel except for the light burn in the middle of the tongue. Dry. Spice lingers - coriander. My 50th rated Belgian.

Bottle. Golden beer with a huge white head. Green apple, citrus, and yeasty spiceiness in the aroma. Great complex flavor with nothing overpowering: malt, yeast, spice, lemon, floral, slight alcohol, clove... Fades into a well-rounded profile. Subtle and easy drinking

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a hazy, greenish-yellow, pear-like, lots of rising carbonation. Head is perfectly full - lasts for the entire drinking - with tiny bubbles, so small, it is basically one transparent white mass. Aroma is like cider, with cutting citrus and vinegar, along with apples, peroxide, slight clove, soft banana, and even softer mint. Taste is brisk, sharp and bold flavors of asaid apple and acidic lemon, spicy with clove, orange peel, coriander spice and well-reasoned alcohol. There is some dusty basement/vegetablely flavors, but its not too big of a deal. Aftertaste is malt, bubble gum, lesser apricot and pineapple. All said, great beer, average Tripel. Sampled from a 330ml bottle, purchased at Chevy Chase Wine & Spirits in Washington, DC.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
(04.01.06) 330 mL brown bottle purchased at The Tree pub, Beijing, China. ABV 7.5%. Bottle states that best consumed before 10/04. Poured hazy orange with medium white head. Soft carbonation. Fruity aroma in the nose. Medium bodied Belgium ale that starts with light sweet malt with tangy spicy fruity flavor. Finishes with light malt fade. Smooth, flavorful and clean tasting. No funky medicinal phenols. No discernable hops. An excellent tripel, one of the best that I’ve tried thus far.
