mikkopen (1164) - Guelph, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 3, 2008
Bottle. Colour hazy reddish orange-brown, smal white head. Fruity aroma with some yeast and banana, a hint of lemon. Flavour is malty and fruity, with a nice sweet and warm aftertaste. The weakest Trappist beer I’ve had so far, but still very enjoyable. trapez (1563) - Hilleroed, DENMARK - MAY 3, 2008
Stonework bottel 0.5 l. Bought Kvickly Hilleroed. Color clear golden amber with white head. Pleasnat sweet raisinlike aroma with spicy notes - justa perfect note of corianter and alcohol. Taste is sweet,longlasting and slightly bitter, the coriander is by no means dominant but is present im a perfectly discrete way. Mouthfeel soft with nice carbonation. The classical deeds of the Benedicitins are kept in this beer - simplicity and love. esox (1225) - Oulu, FINLAND - MAY 2, 2008
Bottle. Head is quite small and dense. Liquid is a bit hazy and reddish orange/copper in colour. Rich and sweet maltiness with yeast and fruits like banana and some citrus fruits. Something "dark" in the malts, maybe burned sugar? Long and enjoyable finish with hoppy bite and some alcohol. Body is quite full and thick. Dries in the finish. Medium carbonation. Maybe a bit simple tripel that has great finish. daniele (9063) - ITALY - APR 26, 2008
oro schiuma buona ma non molto persistente note nette di mela in bocca poco interssante malto piuttosto gasata luppolo non molto secchezza media alcol un po fastidioso lieviti RaphaelN (195) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - APR 22, 2008
On tap at St. Veronus. Not a chock full of flavour on this one. Very clear appearance (unlike most belgians). Smell is of sugar and molasses. Mouthfeel is very thin and flavours of yeast and white sugar (oddly enough) appear on the tongue. Wasn’t too impressed. The quadrupel is leagues ahead of this one.

UPDATED: JAN 28, 2009 TAP at the castle on king. 6 oz taster. pours murky golden with an average white head. aromas of funky white wine, some sourness, fruit in the nose as well. flavours are yeasty, sour, funky, belgian candied sugar, vauge hop finish. it was drinkable with soft carbonation. ill try it again but it wasnt the best offering i had tonight. 7/3/7/3/12 BOTTLE. 750 ml bottle from the LCBO. Ive had this in the cellar for a while and cracked it with about 6 months on it. corked 07/08. the bottle wasnt sour like the tap version i tried. incredible soft and sweet. very refined with no alcohol present. nice to look at but lacking the dynamic flavour profile of a really good triple. a let down but still overall pretty decent. i still want to try this one again. 6/4/7/3/12 BeerFanDan17 (1120) - Brunswick, Maine, USA - APR 18, 2008

As I recall, this was a good Tripel. I am surpised I had to add this to RateBeer. If I can find the bottle and have not thrown it away, I will submit the picture. LordCorkscrew (1774) - Ronco Scrivia (GE), ITALY - APR 18, 2008
Non è che sia malvagia, semplicemente è piuttosto insulsa; aroma vagamente caramelloso, fa poca schiuma che se ne va subito. Il sapore è sottilissimo e sembra un po’ il carbone dolce della befana. Corpo acquoso anche se un po’ appiccicoso. Frizzante. Mah tarjei (1954) - Bryne, NORWAY - APR 15, 2008
50 cl bottle, at my «Hopheads» tasting. Amber color, white head. Aroma is sweet and fruity. Flavor is the same. Watery and without carbonation. Too old? Dry finish. scrizzz (2223) - Bothell, Washington, USA - APR 15, 2008
weighted golden with thick, unmoving bright white head. carbonation is the only thing stirring up the suspended goodness in the glass. aromas of orange and dry malt, but faint. sweet maple syrup, orange blossom base, soft herbal floral hop notes and everything blends to a tropical finish.
