Lilith (242) - Santiago, CHILE - JAN 21, 2007
Bright orange color, hazy, with lots of small particles ascending to its beautiful creamy, off-white head. Aroma is sweet, cereal, hoppy like bread, wiht notes of honey, toffee and peach. Flavor is similar to the aroma but smoother and more alcoholic and spicy. Liquorish texture, bitter finish.

- Hanga Roa, Easter Island, CHILE - JAN 19, 2007
Bottle from Eurohappy: Pours a hazy dark orange color. Head is big, white though its not very persistant. It leaves a nice lacing. Aroma is very spicy, yeasty and fruity. More like a Tripel than anything else. It shows notes of oranges, peaches, coriander, pepper, vanilla and liquorish hints of curazao. After that you can sense a very unusual hoppy aroma of cannabis, resin and pine. Wow, this is weird in a belgian beer. Complex. Flavor is more like a Quad. Intense, sweet, liquorish with notes of cognac, oranges, tequila sunrise, apricots and some berries. Good bitterness in the end along with an alcoholic burn. Great. Body is big, thick oily texture. Very strong alcoholic presence. Warming sensation while sipping. Nice carbonation for the style. Good aftertaste. A very interesting, different brew.

OldMrCrow (2434) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JAN 8, 2007
Bottle.

Pours golden orange, lots of suspended floaty material, and with a big white egg-white head that clings to the sides of the glass as the head recedes in an opaque layer of white lacing. Gentle citrus and flowers on the aroma, a very slight sour funkiness and a hint of honey. Like the appearance, the flavor is that of tripel, orange peel and candy sugar, maybe a whisp of pineapple, a bit too much hops-turned-to-cheese. Mouthfeel is rich and here the alcohol warmth on the palate is quite enjoyable, as it blends with a final (modest) snap of hops to finish off each sip.

Its not a masterpiece by any means, but its a perfectly respectable beer.

HermanW (1069) - Coevorden, NETHERLANDS - JAN 6, 2007
Nowadays this beer is called TRIPLE ABT. It is a beer of high alcohol %, and you taste it. That is waht I do not like on this beer.

Sickboy282 (1114) - San Diego, California, USA - DEC 28, 2006
Pours a cloudy orange brown hue with a cloudy white frothy head. Aromas of citrus, and spice. Flavors of caramel, old hops, milk and more spice.

DonMagi (5593) - bantervile, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - DEC 24, 2006
This is a triple. Aroma is very fruity, yeasty, floural grassy with a bit of sweetness off the malts but very nice. Taste is similar grassy, bittering hops balance it out well, probably the best triple iv ever had and one to have again.

UselessGdTaste (365) - Long Beach, California, USA - DEC 21, 2006
I really like the mouth feel. I poured this rather aggressively, which removed some of the extra carbonation. Flavor is sweet with a a bitterness that kind of hits the back of the throat in a good way. Very warming, which is expected from a 10%, but taste of alcohol was not there at all.

bager (2120) - Copenhagen N, DENMARK - DEC 21, 2006
Bottled (also shared with the thirsty Dr. J. at the DTE). Clear golden coloured with a medium sized head. Malty with notes of candied sugar, caramel and spices. Somewhat alcoholic with a too high carbonaton level.

BckDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - DEC 12, 2006
Bottle: Hazy gold, light head and lacing. Nose of musky yeast, a bit dark with some molasses or rye notes. The flavor is super caramelly like those caramel cubes you get at halloween. Finishes a bit strong, sweet, balanced though. Yummy, citrusy and hoppy.
