Inveigler (371) - Ferndale, Michigan, USA - FEB 13, 2005
The aroma is very complex with lots of malts -- a little heavier and headier than most tripels. Some marshmallow and candy cane whiffs in a hazed light orange color. The head disapates quickly. Tje flavor is robust -- none of that characteristic Belgian thinness -- this stuff is all malt. A little woodsier that I would like, but still good.

Bottle from Cocktails, Littleborough. Golden with a head. Strong tasting but retaining a typically Belgian style, with a good smoothness to it. Its pale malts include a mild spiciness.

Evilman (210) - Taverny, FRANCE - APR 15, 2017
This is certainly the best widely available beer I can think of. Not to be overlooked compared to abbey or local breweries products, Ive been pretty surprised. Quite strong taste, hints of caramel and spices, and, unlike many others, a real aftertaste. Not the easiest one to drink, but clearly good for any occasion. Great overall. APPROVED BY TAVERNYS BLACK METAL CREW!

gripweed57 (1794) - Hamilton Square, New Jersey, USA - APR 8, 2017
From old tasting notes. Cloudy orange copper color. Big creamy beige head tops lots of tiny bubbles. Aroma hints at dried fruit. Subtle semi-sweet complex malt flavor, hints at maple, licorice and burnt caramel. Deep rich flavor that finishes dry and crisp. Full bodied, tasty and unique. Very good.

Luneylane (134) - Taipei City, TAIWAN - FEB 22, 2017
A bottle from the Cafe Bastille near Taipower Building. Aroma: very fresh bread, candied orange peel. Appearance: hazy amber, 1-2mm. lacing. Palate: full-bodied and creamy, average carbonation. A long, complex finish with a well-hidden booze hit. Taste: Sweet vs. bitter extremely well balanced, some pepper from the booze, but its always subtle. Great beer.

UPDATED: FEB 24, 2017 Its smell fresh and got a gold color body with a nice foam collar when you pour it out of the bottle. The taste is just like you expect from a descent triple. I can really taste the honey in it. And got a bitter after taste but there is something in the aftertaste that keeps me from rating it higher on taste. Overall a decent triple which actually can never be wrong.

Amber coloured triple. Big white head. Very good balanced. Nice tones of orange, honey, a bit of candy. Nice bitters which softly disappears in the mouth. Good beer!
