750ml. Bottle. Pours a hazy golden color. Sweet yeasty aroma with a hint of pear juice. Flavor up front is quite spicy with a bit of a yeast flavor. Some grain seems to be present as well. Rich in flavor with a full mouthfeel. Alcohol is slightly noticable. Tasty, well rounded brew. altkencru (143) - USA - NOV 4, 2005
Incredibly, another great Belgian tripel. I don’t understand why it’s typically $1 cheaper than the other, IMO it’s just as good. fordest (2470) - Santee/San Diego, California, USA - OCT 28, 2005
750 ml bottle. poured hazy yellow with a huge head. Lacing was fluffy and filled the glass. Aromas were citrus and very Tripel like. Flavors were fruity and definitley full-bodies. Finish was dry, and quite a bit of alcohol presence. Not too bad. Hansen (8595) - Assentoft, DENMARK - OCT 16, 2005
Golden colour, medium head. Floral- sweet aroma. Flavor is too bitter, too much alcohol. Tejas (1006) - Dallas, Texas, USA - OCT 2, 2005
Lots of coriander and yeast in the nose. The same carries over into the flavor too. Big full bold flavors. To me, some Tripels can be a bit light in body; this one isn’t. A solid tripel.

DEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE-lish! Well-done Tripels are fabulous. Pretty much everything good you’d expect in this style. Bottle says to pour the yeast in with the rest if you want a nutty flavor, and I do, and there is one. I’m surprised that Tripels aren’t everyone’s favorite style. This or St. Bernie’s is my favorite of this style. MesandSim (7117) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 28, 2005
A Mes rate:
Pretty run of the mill tripel. Slightly cloudy. Little sticky in the mouth. Lots of coriander and butterscotch and the slight lick of alcohol make for something that is ok, nothing better for me. NoiZe (2323) - Zeist, NETHERLANDS - SEP 24, 2005
Decent aroma and appearance. Fruity and a bit sour. A bit spicy. Not that easy to tell the exact taste. But enjoyable. RAYBOY01 (2011) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - SEP 18, 2005
UPDATED: SEP 19, 2005 Fruit (apples and pears) and weird Belgian spicing going on in the aroma...very pleasant and promising. Great spritzy carbonation keeps the tongue happy. Wonderfully complex flavors...a whirlpool of apple brandy, pear tart, orange peel essence, honey, and strange florals. Some moderate hop bitterness in the finish to try and rein in the sweet malts and yeast from running rampant. Very very good! WISEGUY572 (1377) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 31, 2005
Darker, more copper amber than some tripels, almost cloudy, with a fluffy white head that vanishes. Usual tripel taste of malt, yeast, and bread, with some sourness and citrus. Not my favorite style, but this one seems quite well made.
