PeterA (342) - EL SALVADOR - MAY 2, 2007
Nice apple, caramel aroma. Cloudy golden brown color with short-lived, thick white head. The flavor was candy sweet, orange and apple were there. The mouthfeel was a little bit sticky with a slightly bitter aftertaste. A little bit strong for a session beer, but I might be able to pull it off.

eaglefan538 (3035) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - APR 30, 2007
Poured a golden hazy color, not a lot of sedimentation, frothy white head, just lingered forever, looked a lot like a merangue (sp?). The aroma was yeasty, cedar wood-like aromas, fruitiness. The flavor was yeasty, fruity (some bananas), dry dusty, floral and herbal hops. Mouthfeel was moderate for the style, carbonated.

pforei (338) - USA - APR 19, 2007
Trappist glass. Amber color with sediment and decent head. Sugar coated orange and banana aroma. Taste is similar with spicy notes. Not very complex. Some reviewers made the spot on comment that there was buttersotch at the end. Nice soft mouthfeel. Not really a typical triple. However, it is enjoyable.

pbrick (13) - Roseville, California, USA - APR 19, 2007
light spicy aroma, biscuity sweet taste with wonderful candy character - somewhat like clover honey. suspended yeast even with gentle pour, does not appear to impact taste or aroma. thick sediment at bottom of bottle. this is a beautiful beer and a great night cap (by the pint!). suggest pairing with a sweet & spicy dish with moderate heat and caramelization.

Palidor19 (3177) - Brandon, Florida, USA - APR 18, 2007
Gives a stronger sense of accomplishment than the its double counter-part. The taste of full bodied flavors of malts, fruits and mild candy sugar makes this a special treat.

nick76 (4387) - Tampa, Florida, USA - APR 17, 2007
The aroma has light fruit, yeast, sugar, and perfume. The appearance is golden with a light haze and a huge head that keeps lasting. The flavor is like the aroma with some bitterness. The palate is thin. I like this one but thats all.

jimhilt (2582) - Bow, New Hampshire, USA - APR 15, 2007
Cork exploded to ceiling, pours a five+ finger smooth cream head that fades very slowly leaving a good lace. Cloudy amber color. Strong carbonation and medium bodied. Slight malty nose. Flavor sweet and tart, finish is tart. Tastes different from the last time I had this in 12/2001. $6.22 for a 750ml bottle from Smileys Beverages Dover, NH.

Pours a hazy gold with a nice foamy white head. Aroma is yeasty. Tastes sweet with some malt, banana and yeast. Very smooth.The finish lingers on the palate for a while.

thebeertourist (5188) - Oslo, NORWAY - APR 10, 2007
1995 bottle at Kulminator. Clear amber with a lively carbonation and a lot of sediment. Raisins aroma with cellar notes. Sweet raisins flavours, combining with a good dry finish. Time has done this beer, reflected in the relatively high rating.

Veer (362) - Landskrona, SWEDEN - APR 6, 2007
Aroma: neutral, yeasty, some tropical fruitness & light malts.
Appearance: lion yellow, clear & with a white, quickly setting head...
Flavour: pleasant, sweet with good bitterness for a Belgian... the sweetness, however, is a little bit too lingering. Overall neutral profile. Somewhat rowan & apple.
Palate: a bit slimy, lots of co2 as tripels usually have...
an ok tripel
