33 cl bottle @ Gastropub Tuulensuu. Rated on 30.03.2011ekstedt (7013) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - MAR 20, 2012
Aroma is sweet and malty with hints of toffee. Flavour has sweet malt with caramel and candy sugar. A bit harsh finish. A Belgian strong with elements from bock beers, does not feel like a tripel.
Bottle (33 cl) from Beerplanet.be. Clear deep reddish brown (tripel, really??) with medium brief beige head. A bit sharp roasted aroma with some ash tray notes, some dark chocolate and dried fruits as well. Medium to full bodied, medium carbonation. Semi dry, medium bitterness. An interesting belgo style porter. TomTrogh (17) - BELGIUM - FEB 10, 2012
Erg donkerbruin met snel verdwijnend schuim; geur van kers en peer die fruitiger is dan de smaak - die geeft koffie, donkere chocolade en gebrande mout en valt een stuk zwaarder; in de nasmaak breekt de stout helemaal door. Erg lekker bij zoet fruit. Abio (1868) - BERMUDA - DEC 19, 2011
Dark brown beer. Head is ok, should just hold a bit longer. Chocolate, malts and spices. Pretty decent, and a good mouthfeel. Alcohol is present a bit to much. Decent dry eathyness.

Bottle, bought @ Willems, Grobbendonk.TheBeerWatcher (10) - Arlon, BELGIUM - DEC 15, 2011
Light hazy redish black with a medium, firm, frothy, beige head. Aroma has light roasted malts, hazelnuts, plums, light vinious, a touch of liqourice. Highish carbonation, light creamy mouthfeel. Flavour has good heavy sugary sweetness at first, then lots of roasted malts, chocolate, light liqourice. Lingering vinious and malty bitter finish. Very well-balanced beer. But not a tripel.
Alpaïde 33cl bottle from www.belgianbeerstation.com.
This ale has got a very beautiful and warm red brown color. The liquid is very clear and has a nice carbonation. The head is thick, beige, bubbly and stable.
The aroma is sweet with roasted malts as the first thing that comes up. Chocolate touch.
The mouthfeel is quite syrupy. First taste is sweetness but it is quickly overtaken by roasted malts and bitterness. Liquorice ! The finish is very long, excellent. Alcohol is clearly presentl.
This is a complex and wonderful beer with a very warming character. Brewery Nieuwhuys from Hoegaarden is maybe small but this beer is top class ! Lasupercazzola (2) - ITALY - DEC 8, 2011 does not count
very local production from Hoogaarden, BE. Only available in few bars in the neighbourhood. Tasted in Leuven at M-cafe diabel (1723) - Aarschot, BELGIUM - NOV 17, 2011
Deep mahoney to black body. Creamy, lightly brown head. Aroma of caramalts and strong coffee/chocolate malts. Well balanced and complex aroma. Moderately bitter, moderately sweet flavour. Well balanced, nice complexity in the flavour as well. Nice and warming. MPA (1040) - Amager (form. Nørrebro&Aalborg), DENMARK - SEP 10, 2011
