a_cross (639) - Poole, Dorset, - NOV 15, 2012
Cloudy, very light brown; yeast and caramel nose; malty sweetness initially, light fruit and spice, oranges, lemon and pepper; generally restrained; nice, well balanced, but felt it a little too peppery and just lacking a bit of oomph, really. A relative disappointment - expectations were high.

Color pajizo muy brillante. Ofrece aromas de albaricoque y uvas blancas con ligeras notas de cereales y menta. En boca, hay sabores de lima y manzanilla con un buen cuerpo. Presenta un muy ligero dulzor y un final semi-seco.

Ale’a benzeyen koku. Tadı hafif yağlı. Buğday tadı çok keskin değil. Alkol tadı neredeyse hiç alınmıyor. Az asidik.

brandy cools (28) - antwerp, BELGIUM - NOV 10, 2017
UPDATED: NOV 13, 2017 Fruit in the flavour, like banana and a bit of dried raisins. Also some yeast in the background. An orange colour and quite some head. The taste is fruity (:banana and something citrussy,) again, with moderate hop-bitterness , a touch of sour and some sweetness. Again a hint of yeast. A bit thick on the tongue. Enjoyable for sure but not exceptional like the Abt from the same brewery.

Ik had er iets meer van verwacht. Een doorsnee triple. Weinig karakteristieks. Ik heb hem nu gedronken, maar voor mij geen blijvertje.

FireGlider (702) - Zagreb, CROATIA - NOV 1, 2017
Cloudy orange color with small white head. Wheat with some apple aroma. Sweet fruity taste. It is OK but needs some more distinctive flavors.

UPDATED: NOV 1, 2017 0.33l bottle. Cloudy orange color with white head. Aroma of spices, clove, yeast and fruits. Taste is sweet and bitter. Nothing special.

Bill Becker (1808) - Casper, Wyoming, USA - OCT 17, 2017
From Oct 2006 Poured from caged and corked 750ml bottle(near room temp) a clear, at first... then turns cloudy due to the sediment, light gold with a large head of foam with lots of lacing. After a few minutes, the foam shrinks to a fine but solid layer. The smell is lemony and yeasty and there's also some spice in the nose. The taste first hits me with some malty sweetness(more of a candy sugar sweetness), followed closely by lemon citrus and a touch of clove. The more I sip on it, the more I notice how well balanced and smooth drinking this brew is..oh, and there's also a touch of sourness near and through the finish which adds to my enjoyment. Further in to the bottle, the bitterness from the hops intensifies, nay, in fact, *all* the flavours I noted before increase in intensity making for a much more complex Tripel than the first glassful "promised". Yummy! Ahhh..and the nice warming effect in the tummy is certainly more than welcome on this cool, crisp Autumn day in Casper. Bottom line: IMHO, this is certainly a world class Tripel. I think it is a *must try* for anyone who claims to be a lover of Belgian Ales!

GhostS (518) - Chisinau, MOLDOVA - OCT 11, 2017
Aromă cu malț, drojdii, fructe galbene fermentate, puține citrice, pireu de mere ușor înăcrit. Gust ușor, păcut, malț dulce, fructe galbene ușor fermentate, ceva citrice coapte, puține drojdii belgiene, ușoară amăreală pe fundal. Bună și ușoară.
