Pour is a hazy brown with a large white head. Aroma is spice and roasted nuts. Flavor is citrus with a large dose of of fruit sugar. Unlike the Grand Cru the alcohol in this brew kicks you in the pants. Is it tasty..yes. Is it the best tripel out there....no by a long shot. I would call this a average brew.

wilkie (1208) - Raleigh, North Carolina, USA - FEB 7, 2006
Bottle. Amber, very hazy, with medium, lasting off-white head. Smells yeasty and spicy. Flavor is similar with a decent maltiness. Not at all a triple, more like a dubbel or high alcohol bruin. Slight citrus and alcohol in aftertaste. Typical belgian style, good, although not truly excellent.

grat (432) - ST. Louis, Missouri, USA - FEB 6, 2006
Well..I bought this thinking it would be bright straw yellow and be a fricking tripel...No to so much...but man is this stuff awesome. Rosted chestnut mahogany. Pale white head. Hazy and red. IT looks fabulous. Chicken bullion in the nose. This beer has that strange malty, salty thing going for it. This slides into a nuttiness that is quite chestnutty. Underneath it all is a mssive fruity yeast that is exquisite. Flavors pouind the palate. A sledgehammer o complexity and sweetness. Cane sugar sweetness at first. Saltiness looms silently in the background and then screams in the back of your mouth. Lemons appear in the finish and linger on until they turn to oranges and then strawberries. This is an excellent beer. Highly drinkable. THis would be a good one to get Macro drinkers into belgian beer.

Poured a dark brown with reddish tint and a big tan head. A wonderful warming aroma of alcohol, spice and yeast, with a nice dark fruit undertone. Flavor was a sweet caramel malt with undertones of spicy fruit. A truely wonderful beer.

Dark, brown, chocolaty, sweet. It makes me think of doppelsticke, actually. I knew the bartender was wrong we he tried to tell me this was a tripel by Bernadhus, so I’m glad I found the owner, found out the truth and ordered it. Fantastic, truly fantastic.

Probiere (992) - Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 31, 2006
I’m tempted to call this brewery overrated, but I think it’s more a case of me just really not digging their house yeast character. This beer had a lot of richness, with honey-soaked fruits of all descriptions dancing in and out of contact with my taste buds. There was also a heavy tobacco note entwined with caramel and wrapped around the main fruity theme. Hops dance in and out with spiciness and herballness keeping the sweet malt from being too weighty. Yet despite all this, I just don’t dig this beer.

Gorbalev (3000) - Ontario, CANADA - JAN 30, 2006
Bottle. Deep brown with lots of red, big brown head. Wonderful warming aroma of alcohol, spice and yeast, with a nice dark fruit undertone. Silky soft mouthfeel. Taste is not too strong at first - just a soft bit of spice, and some toffee sweet notes. This gives way to a sharp spice and hop middle and finish, with a good kick of alcohol in the linger. Incredibly velvety smooth. Lots of different flavours depending on where this is in your throat. What a nice beer - a pleasure to drink.

DocLock (10458) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 30, 2006
This one tastes and looks more like a Grand Cru than a tripel. The pour was turbid brownish clay red with a 2-finger khaki head. The aroma was complex, with notes of caramel malt, figs, plums, raisins, peat, cherries. The taste was fruity, with caramel malt, some peaty elements, and some spiciness as it warms. This one remains fruity throughout, and at times assumes a flavor and aroma profile similar to that of Rocheforte, Westy, and St. Berny. The palate is very complex and very velvety.

Thanks for sharing DrJay! Dark, hazy brown pour with so many floaties, it is unprecidented. Decent head size and retention. Lots of yeast and plum in the armoa, accompanied by sugared malt and some chocolate. Sweet caramel malt, prunes, and chocolate make up the flavour profile. Yeasty, warming finish with a nice bite. Another great beer from ADR.
