Bottled. Golden colour, creamy white mediumsized head. Aroma is acidic fruit and yeast with some caramellish and glueish hints. Flavour is glue, malts, acidic fruit and some yeast. Also alcohol is present. marcus (10156) - Sacramento, California, USA - DEC 28, 2006
This pale golden ale poured with modest white head. The flavor is slightly sweet, with candy sugar, fruit and alcohol tastes. This is an average tripel that is a good quaff, but not remarkable. larsga (7509) - Oslo, NORWAY - DEC 13, 2006
Smalish white head; pale yellow body. Strong marzipan aroma with notes of apple and alcohol with bready touches. Taste is firm, yet delicate bitter apple with a metallic caramel finish. Good, but not outstanding. (0.33l bottle.) altonbrownd (5898) - Chevy Chase, Maryland, USA - NOV 11, 2006
Bottle at home. An excellent Tripel with a sweet scent, distinctive spicy and sugary taste and strong, full and bitter finish. Alcohol taste could be better hidden. duff (5484) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - NOV 4, 2006
Bottle. Golden colour, with a big blotchy, bubbly head. Smells very sweet. Lots of candy sugar sweetness in the flavour. Lots of yeasty citrus characters and too much raw alcohol noticed. Very sweet and one dimensional mouthfeel. Some detergenty fizz (lemon detergent)

Can’t be excited about this even after downing many, bored by the lack of beer-enthusiasm in Mont Martre, France. I tried this on draught in a ’Jamaican’ bar of all things, the least of which I expected, or didn’t expect at all, in this affluent quarter of the already pompous realm of gaye Parie. fonefan (48799) - VestJylland, DENMARK - AUG 3, 2006
Into its own chalice from the tap. Poured an oily yellow with a touch of darker shade. Limp, layer of white cream donned it, leaving no lace. Aroma was too subtle but held some white bread, yeast and cantaloupe. In the mouth it was harsh, chilled and fizzy. Licks of subtleties developed but didn’t enthral. House yeast, cantaloupe and candied lemon, soft pear and vanilla in back Harsh swallow, warming, little length. I drank this because it was there, a bottled version would be a better determination. I didn’t like it as is. Yet, in beer devoid Paris this wasn’t too bad. Extra points!
Bottle. Gold blond coloured, average white head. Lots of carbonation. Hoppy and fruity aroma, full body, creamy texture. Sweet bitter finish with some alcoholic touches. Finn (7516) - Tromsø, NORWAY - AUG 1, 2006
Bottle 0,33l. Colden colour. Unclear. A rapidly disappearing head. Sourish and spicy aroma. A sweet complex flavour with a lasting bitter aftertaste. Rune (12633) - Tromsø, NORWAY - JUL 29, 2006
330ml bottle. Pale yellow, slightly hazy. Bubbly white head - most of it short-lived. Light aroma of fresh fruit. Sweet spicy taste with apple notes. The strong alcohol is very much present in the aftertaste. sinte (564) - Udine, ITALY - JUL 27, 2006
Bottle 0,33l. Aroma is malt with notes of caramel, apple, spices (intense) and alcohol; some solvente feeling.
Clear amber colour with large white head; good lacing and persistence; tiny particles.
Flavour is mainly sweet which becomes more balanced in the finish since the bitter note raises up a bit.
Medium body, oily texture with a lively carbonation; harsh alcoholic feeling in the finish.
NIce beer, but alcohol and spices overvcome the fruity notes and go towards a light solvent feeling.
