From a bottle poured an amber color with a good amount of head. Light malty flavor with a quick spicy finish. jercraigs (10886) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 21, 2012
2012-01-06. Hazy pastel dark yellow body with a huge frothy off-white head. 3+ Sweetish pale malt in the aroma, light alcohol. 6+ Flavour is similar, light alcohol, pale malt, light caramel notes to the malt. 7+ Smooth average plus palate. Simple but serviceable tripel. Bottle shared by HogTownHarry

Bottle shared by kevinsenn. Satisfying pop from one of the more interesting looking bottles I’ve seen. Cloudy amber with a moderate head. Belgian spiciness in the aroma. Complex flavors, tiny bit of spice with moderate esters. Lots of bitterness in this one, which I feel should be cut down somewhat. Was going to say the alcohol was well-hidden, but it comes out a lot in the aftertaste. Could stand a bit of aging; I think this bottle was from this year. OK for a Belgian-style beer. kevinsenn (2289) - Waterloo, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 20, 2012
750mL bottle from LCBO, shared with toffsbury. Pours hazy and amber with a big white head. Typical tripel spiciness in the aroma, with some oak. Fruit and spice in the taste, then dry bitterness, alcohol, and grainy cereal in the finish. An OK tripel. drowland (9077) - Georgia, USA - JAN 20, 2012
1/20/12. 750mL bottle. Relatively clear golden pour with a nice, fluffy off-white head that fades. Big Belgian aroma of yeast, fruity esters, and a teensy bit of tartness. Sweet, fruity flavor with plenty of yeast, nice bitter, tannic character, and lingering sweetness with a bit of honey. Not bad!

750ml bottle from the LCBO shared with jsprime. super hazy golden big white head. nice spicey fruity yeasty belgian triple nose. pretty polished flavour, missing that rustic quality to put it into the 4s. good. jmagnus87 (3302) - Rockford, Illinois, USA - JAN 11, 2012
750ml bottle from Binny’s poured into a Trappist Glass. Pours a lightly cloudy burnt orange with a minimal bit of white head. Aroma of caramelized Belgian sugar, fermented tropical fruits and some spicy citrus hops. Taste is light sweet. Everything mentioned above plus a little boozy burn. Taste is much more hop oriented than the aroma. Medium bodied with a slick texture. Fizzy champagne-like carbonation and a long boozy finish. Overall, very good. I’m glad I have the whole bottle to myself. crazyvin (2026) - New York, USA - JAN 6, 2012
A nice slightly cloudy golden amber hue with a white head that had great retention and nice lacing. Aroma had nice bread malts, some banana and a spice note. Flavor had a good malt profile. Fruit and spice notes were somewhat unbalanced but not to the point of being bad. Definitely some yeast and alcohol flavors in the finish. Carbonation was adequate. garthicus (2945) - Dublin, IRELAND - JAN 6, 2012

Pours a medium to dark gold color. Bubbly head. A somewhat distant sweet malt and fruit character. Some medicinal yeast and hop way in the background. Taste is nice enough with a bit of fruit juice up front on a nicely balanced tongue. Chase is mostly yeasty and some light fruit. Alcohol hinted at but nicely done for 10%.
