Bottled. Hazy orange color, big white head. Aroma of a spicy tripel, bit fruity, typically belgian triple, quite nice. Strong spicy and fruity taste, slight bitter, slight sweet, good balance. Nice stuff. Rastacouere (6177) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 2, 2007
Cloudy golden pour. Lacy Belgian white head. Yeasty and spicy, alcoholic nose. Orangey flavours feel quite juicy in mouth, but the growing foaminess kills this initially pleasant impression. Not too complicated for a tripel, it is smooth, yet quite warming and playing a lot on the old trick of hinting at spices that the taster can never really identify. Outside of that, the hops feel a bit neglected, but the day-after, it’s a pleasant memory that one expects will not last very long. tarjei (1954) - Bryne, NORWAY - SEP 22, 2007

App.: Deep golden, clear, huge off-white meringue.
Aroma: Lots of candi sugar, some apricots, raisins and other assorted fruits, lightly woody or something, a little spicey (coriander, I guess), a vegetal funk, a dirty smell that I can’t put my finger on; once the head settled, a picked up more orange peel, bread, honey, and sticky malts.
Palate: Medium body and soft carbonation.
Flav.: Some of the sweet malts, that vegetal/dirty/funky smell, some light coriander and spice, some light floral notes, a bit of honey, a bit of wood; certainly some piney hops; semi-sweet but balanced by enough bitterness; alcohol is detectable, but barely.
My favourite of their products so far. Maybe I’m in a weird mood or something, but this Tripel grabbed my attention more than usual.
Snout rubbed in orange and pine needles. Silk and marmalade. Impossible to believe it contains alcohol. Those Belgian devils have conjured something at 8.1% that tastes like it’s actually good for you. Drips with lace and no-nonsense citrussy hop bitterness. My kind of Tripel.

Pours a slightly hazed gold amber. Nose is strong, though not overdone with yeast. I was getting a strong whiff of the yeasts with it just sitting on my desk a foot from me. Flavor is smooth with a sweet touch. Has a bit of an orange taste to it, I think. Overall it is smooth and even and quite tasty with the flavor. Feel is good. Smooth with ingredients and a decent amount of bubble. Highly drinkable. If you can get it, get it. This is a great brew. My first from this brewery. I’d love to try their others now and see how good they are as well. Quevillon (3094) - Boisbriand, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 2, 2007
Bu au Festival Bière et Saveur (bouteille). Blonde miel brumeuse, bon collet. Arome de malte épicé, avec des notes légères d’agrumes. Goût très pétillant d’épice, malte caramelisé légé et du gingembre doux. FrankJohansen (3622) - Sabro, DENMARK - SEP 2, 2007
Bottle. Hazy golden colour with a huge mostly lastin white head. rich aroma and taste of fuits, citrus and malts. Slightly alcoholic finish. Stefano (2007) - Thisted, DENMARK - SEP 1, 2007
Pours clear yellow with big creamy and very white head. Aroma of fruit, citrus, and alcohol. Flavor was not overly vinuous at 8.1%, somewhat acidic, fruity, clove and spicy. Mouthfeel had a tingly and warming effect.
