The 11.2 ounce bottle poured a clear, golden yellow colored beverage with a small creamy white head that was completely lasting and left great lacing on the glass. The aroma was sour. It was primarily sour fruit notes but there were also hints of old leather, pepper and coriander. The body was medium-full with a soft carbonation and a smooth creamy texture. The flavor starts out lightly sour on the tip of the tongue then as it matures on the palate it takes on a sweeter character. The finish is long and has a definite alcohol warmth high in the throat.

75 cl bottle, shared, nice golden colour with stable white head. Smell: yeasty and alcohol. Taste: alcohol, sweet, apricot, yeast, malty. Nice ale but a bit too much alcohol flavour.

One of the best tripels out there... slightly sweet even with the generous hops and spicy yeast character

Bottle. Pours clear golden with beige head. Aroma is sweet and light malty with biscuit and light spicy. Taste is light malty with biscuit and light bread yet spicy with coriander and has a balanced sweet and spicy dry finish. Alcohol quite evident.

33cl bottle, dated 12-04. Pours murky gold without any real head. Aroma of alcohol drenched tropical fruits. Drinks the same way, some substantial sweetness, a lot of heat. But not horrible. Way too hot for me to say it has any grace. I wonder what would be if they knocked this down 2%ABV? May be even boozier than Westmalle, which this tried to copy.

Slightly hazy golden color with a thick white head. Carbonation looks very lively. Caramel, banana, some other fruit maybe apricot. Medium sweet taste. The carbonation is not as crazy as I expected from the looks of it but still quite fizzy. Alcohol leaves you with a warm feeling which is good because it lets you know this is a strong beer in case you forget after a few sips.

sinte (564) - Udine, ITALY - MAY 14, 2013
Bottle 0.33L. Deep golden body with a medium-large, creamy, white head, mostly lasting with a nice lacing. Fruity aroma (white fruits) with evident notes of spices and alcohol; some malty character is also present. Flavour is mainly sweet and spicey. Medium body with an oiuly texture; soft carbonation; evident alcoholic warming in the finish.

raindog (560) - Evansville, Indiana, USA - DEC 26, 2002
BB-09/05:Deep copper,oarnge,liquid with a beakutiful,bone-white,creamy head. The smallest of bubbles create the best of lacework.Appearance would be a six,if possible. Strong aromas of grassy hops,sweet-pale malts,musty yeast. As it warms the hops take over,then the musty yeast dominates. Soft but terribly,thick mouthfeel.Flavors of sweet malt,honey,toast, are all over the tounge while the grassiness of the hops dominate the sides of the mouth. Alcohol is totally hidden and flavor only get’s better.First the grassiness takes over,then the mustiness takes over.Damn good Belgian.

jvmiller (558) - Bel Air, Maryland, USA - AUG 6, 2009
Wasn’t terribly impressed with this as a Tripel. It was really dry, didn’t have a whole lot of fruitiness to it. Alcohol wasn’t a player, but that didn’t add any plusses. Nothing special.

3.7
thooper41 (556) - BELGIUM - JUL 29, 2011
33 cL bottle: Appearance is golden brown with minimal white head. Aroma is strong in bready yeast. Flavor is distinct in bread like yeast notes and a hint of spices.
