Nice amber color, not much of a head, warming, somewhat of a triple flavor, but something was missing, it was ok, drinkable, but some flavor was missing.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a light gold color. Thin white head that quickly disappears. Very little carbonation. Light fruit and belguim yeast aroma. Tastes of fruit, belguim yeast, and spices. Does a very good job of covering that 10% abv. Very warming, but a sub-par trippel. Good compared to some, but not great for the style.

Sweet aroma, with caramel hints. Orangey caramel color with a medium tan head that dissipates quickly. This one sticks around a bit. Lots of sweetness, with banana aftertaste. Almost no hoppiness to speak of.

This is missing something. Clear amber pour. No matter how hard I tried, I could not coax a head out of this beer. Aroma is spicy and malty, but weak. Taste was musty yeast, spice, and lots of alcohol. Thick mouthfeel with a sticky finish. Good, but there are much better tripels out there.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Poured a golden color with a medium fizzy white head that mostly diminished with fair lacing. Moderate spicy citrus and alcohol aroma. Medium to full body with a slick texture and lively carbonation. Medium balanced flavor with a heavy bitter sweet alcohol finish of moderate duration. Interesting but not a standout brew.

2.8 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a cloudy orange with a thin head, I agree with others when they say there is little aroma from this beer, slightly spicy aftertaste, hides the alcohol well but overall a very average brew

A weak example of the tripel style. Sorry, folks, donít bother investing money on this one if you want anything that resembles a tripel. Pour was dark in color (brownish, thought I had poured the dubel) and completely lacking any head or lacing. Boooo! The aroma was like a weak belgian strong ale, some oak, not much else to say. The flavor was similar with some pears?, although the alcohol hid fairly well. Mouthfeel was very very thin for the style. Not a bad beer, not a great example of the style.

This had vertually no head.No action in beer.Color was an orange amber.Not much aroma.Taste was medium heavy bodied.I would really like a bit of bubble action.This beer seems to have completely fermented,hence the 10 % alcohol.tatse was a bit bitter and sour.Somewhat strong unique taste .Canít quite put a finger on it.Almost seems like a wine.It a good beer,but I will try their other ones.The commercial description says a priestess,but I see a dude on the bottle.

UPDATED: OCT 15, 2006 Draught at 42nd Street Oyster Bar in Raleigh, NC. Clear copper color. The fact that there was no head was a bit disappointing. Really, none. Pleasing alcohol and ester aroma and flavor with a spicy finish. Definite clove note that lingers. Slick and vinous. Tasty beer, but not all that pleasing to the eye.
