UPDATED: SEP 1, 2007 bottle @ the dove, farringdon. Perfect amber colour with a thick cream head. Aroma of orange, vanilla, yeast and spice. Taste to match with a strong taste of alcohol. Though the alcohol is noticeable, it’s not overbearing. Finish of creamy orange. Dreamy soft mouthfeel. Like buttah! Very, very good. badinplaid (106) - USA - APR 26, 2007
Poured from 750ml bottle into beer goblet. Deep amber color with nice head. Great aromas with a very drinkable taste. Well brewed belgian ale. tarjei (1954) - Bryne, NORWAY - APR 24, 2007
UPDATED: JUL 20, 2008 Bottle, served in big brandy-glass. It´s strong, but the alcohol is well hidden. Very balanced. Triple is not really my thing, but this one is great. 8-4-8-4-17=4,1.
Re-rate: Amber color, nice off-white head. Aroma is fruity and spicy. Flavor is fruity, sweet malty, alcohol, spices. Balanced and very nice. And I like tripels now! dankman (257) - Somewhere in, Ohio, USA - APR 22, 2007
Very pleasant aroma, coppery orange color, you do not notice the alcohol due to the taste of the beer which isn’t bad but a little rough. Carl99Fan (187) - Suwanee, Georgia, USA - APR 20, 2007
Poured from 11.2 oz bottle into a Trappist glass. Deep gold color with one finger white head. Belgian lacing present. Does not taste of alcohol despite high alcohol content. Medium body. Fruity aroma. Low spicy hop character. Mediume bitterness. A very nice tripel.

Draft. Sweet and fruity, this left an earthy, yeasty aftertaste. Clear, golden pour. The nose presents peach, apple and plum. The flavor starts sweet and turns tart and bitter. Dry finish along with a slight musty aftertaste. Warming alcohol. Nice mouthfeel with its moderate carbonation. acearl (510) - The Ham, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 18, 2007
A dark tangerine hue, with creamy off white head, excellent lacing, has an overriding alcohol smell strangely enough like mixed fruit snacks which don’t actually contain much real fruit, initially sweet with some spice and taste but kills you with a long harsh bitter aftertaste, like sucking on a lemon but the lemon is alcohol and you’re not too in to sour things. Wanted to like it more that I did. Palidor19 (3193) - Brandon, Florida, USA - APR 18, 2007
UPDATED: SEP 27, 2007 This Beer is really spicy. The malts and minor hops aroma play almost the secondary taste while the appearent spice is front and center. The palate is thick while the head lingers on. Very Dry too. troyc (2869) - Illinois, USA - APR 17, 2007
(Bottle) Pours a light amber color with a white foamy head. Aroma of sweet malt. Taste is much more earthy than I expected, with notes of dark fruits and a touch of spice. Seemed a little over-carbonated. Not a bad brew, but flavor-wise a little more harsh than I expected. SpudClampDawg (1029) - Jasper, Indiana, USA - APR 15, 2007
Draft at Flanagan’s Old Ale House: Sparkling clear, golden pour. Rocky head leaves extensive lacing in its wake. Sweet peach and apple esthers dominate the nose. The body is creamy, with a nicely carbonation that expands on the tongue. Honeyed malts, fresh dough and fruity apple cider notes in the body. Long, drying champagne-like finish. Very refreshing.
