330 ml bottle. Pours cloudy golden color with a foam off white head. Aroma of citrus and spice. Sweat taste with a clean finish. fordest (2470) - Santee/San Diego, California, USA - JAN 3, 2007
The 11 oz bottle was barely contianing this super hyperactive hazy yellow beer. Overflowed upon opening and released an outstanding fruity aroma. I usually pour the beer before I smell it. Apricot, banana, and watermelon. Yes, I smelled it twice, there is watermelon in there. Fizzy head was huge, but died off fast like a soda. Very sweet on the flavor as well. Some breadyness, orange, alcohol is present, but not overwellimg. Very Very good. RCL (2030) - Waltham, Massachusetts, USA - DEC 30, 2006
Pear orange and cider aroma with a champagne effervescence. Yeasty sweet flavor. Very nice. shadey (2148) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - DEC 30, 2006
2003 750ml Bottle, tasted December 30, 2006. Beautiful bright orange pour with a big fluffy white head of lacy foam. As the foam recedes from the glass it leaves behind some string lace. Aroma is spicy and flowery, almost saison-ish. Flavor is slightly sweet initially, then the tongue scrapping dryness kicks in. Flowery and spicy. Tripels are one of my least favorites, but this is quality. No hot alcohol in either the aroma or the flavor. ford9719 (371) - Vilseck, GERMANY - DEC 29, 2006
Bottle. Poured a murky golden color with a white frothy head. Aroma of friut. Taste is sweet with fruit and the alcohol is very well hide.

Bottle. Murky golden brown color with a big fluffy white head. Tastes of fruity sweetness carried by a texture that’s slightly oily and creamy. All in all this is a must have beer. JoeMcPhee (9516) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 24, 2006
33 cl bottle. Deep golden and slightly earthy with a thick creamy white head. Sticky lace with very spicy/yeasty aromas. Mango, papaya, lime and lemon top notes, more tropical fruit and even some pineapple. A touch of warming follows all of these bringing with it intense spices of cardamon, clove, and ginger. Creamy texture with a lovely wheaty body and spiciness up front. Fresh tropical fruit mingling with warm baking spices. Ginger, clove, black pepper mingle with a soft spearmint flavour on the back. Sweet Belgian malt bring the yeast and fruitiness together. Warming intensifies the spice and softens the fruit. Waves and waves of alternating sweet spice, tropical fruit and tart acidity just make this a world class example of the brewer’s art. Amazing beer.

Bottle. Golden orange hue with agressively carbonated white head. Nose is orange, pineapple, guava, mango, a little spices, and some yeast. Love the aroma. Flavor is initially sweet with the fruits and then a bit sharper with more bready and yeasty notes along with a pleasent alchohol bite. This is a great beer. So far, my palate has not agreed with de dolle beers, but this one--i likey. bager (2120) - Copenhagen N, DENMARK - DEC 19, 2006
Bottled. Golden coloured with a rather large head. Yeasty and a bit bready with notes of orange, malts, alcohol, various spices and quite highly carbonated. iep (230) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - DEC 18, 2006
Poured out dark-yellow/copper with a typically huge De Dolle Brouwers head. The head wouldn’t fade either, it just sat there. Nice tripel-aromas, sweet with enough hops to balance it. Very yeasty & bready, with some vanilla. Taste was sweet, not much bitterness. Loads of alcohol noticable - which went well with this beer and amplified the malty bready sweetness. Thick mouthfeel, almost cloying, with alot of carbonation. A very well made, large, heavy & bold tripel.
