Floral ether of heady type mead like and grape hyacinth. Serve warmish, 8ºC+ for full effect. Cloying sweetness of treacle and sherry. Initially disappointed (too cold) but will try again.

UPDATED: FEB 20, 2003 An aproachable belgian beer. malty aroma, Quite malty, salty and sweet then bitter. Hints of toffee, pepper, anise, caramel, pears, apples (overipe). Actually quite pleasant, and even complex. I think the spicyness dominates it a bit too much however, and the flavours don't quite combine.

On tap at Amnesia, SF. A brilliant orange glow.Yeast in the nose, some malt, biteless. Light but full bodied. I can see how this is a number one brew for some people. This is a great brew but it's full slightly syrupy feel can damper my tripel guzzling. The glass and holder are a nice touch as well.

I enjoyed this one. The head lasted for ages. I was worried that i might under rate it as mine had fairly large amounts of floating matter suspended in it. I was trying to hard to avoid it. It wasn't too strong tasting for me either, which i find some belgians to be. I want the Kwak glass - it looks fantastic!

Disregard this rating because I am not a fan of the style. It reminded me a lot of Ommegang Hennipin with that Golden Belgian taste of spicy bananas.

Unusual, this one. There is a licquorish and fruit taste that is not unpleasant! Nice alcohol on the palate as well.

Middle of the road tripel.Nice foamy head with lacing but disappears fast.Little carbonation.Nose of ripe pears,apricots.Taste is on the bitter side with metallic/herbal notes.Beer is quite good,not exceptional .The glass is great though.

Excellent belgian ale. Beautiful colour. Has a medium sweet flavour to it, not as sweet as La Chouffe. Don't forget to take the glass and holder home with you.
