Bottle... pours a rich golden color white a fluffy white head. Strong aroma that makes you actually want to drink it. A unique flavor with a hint of fruitiness, but just the right amount of hops that reminds you that you are drinking a beer. Good experience.

beermaniac (86) - Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 18, 2007
Aroma: Aromas of alcohol, pils malt, and fruit. Otherwise clean, light spiciness, restrained. Very nice. Appearance: Blonde, very clear, with decent white head retention. Flavor: Sweetish malt presence, no hop, but hefty fruity notes. Alcohol adds fruity notes. Palate: Adequate carbonation with some alcohol warmth that is a little harsh. Overall: I liked this beer, clean for a belgian, however full flavored. Easy drinking for such a big beer.

Very light golden color with decent, pillowy white head. Yeasty and spicy to smell and taste. Alcohol is definately present, but not too overwhelming, and leaves the drinker with a warming burn down the throat. Not a bad brew, fairly delicate considering how much alcohol is in it, but it seemed to fall a little short from what I was expecting.

Kirill (277) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - JUL 30, 2007
quite outstanding considering i got this for 70 cents at the supermarket, and a 13 percent tripel does not sound too promising... hoppy and fruity, but not to sweet, alcohol quite well hidden

larsga (7330) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUL 20, 2007
Medium white head. Faintly hazy yellow body. Strong, fruity aroma with citric, mealy notes, kind of sharpish, with a hint of alcohol in the sharpness. Mealy fruity taste with citric, spicy (coriander? paradise seeds?) notes. Intense, sharp mouthfeel with considerable alcohol heat. Feels kind of dusty and even muddy. Some sweetness. Bitter, spicy aftertaste. Quite nice, but not too special. I expected more, really. (0.33l bottle from Dorstvlegel, Antwerp.)

750ml bottle from Half Time in Poughkeepsie. Sweet. Not bubbly enough. Head vanished instantly. Would not guess its 11ABV. Very pleasant taste but not with food. I liked this beer.

Lys belgisk l. Smagen er frugtagtig med let belgisk gr smag. Sdlig, Duften er gret og let karamel Forventede en tung og varm lp.g.a. styrken, men det er den ikke. Faktisk en lidt kedelig belgier.
