ante (3373) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - MAR 12, 2008
Bottled at Monks Café, Stockholm. Pours out in a hazy golden colour with a rich, eruptive, firm white foam. Spicy and yeasty aroma leading to the drier side of the spectrum of fresh Seville oranges, orange-peels, immature Kaiser pears, white pepper, grassy noble hops and all-spice with a sweet firm undertone of English marmalade too balance things out. Full, spicy, fruity and fresh flavour of orange-peels, fresh-baked white bread, white pepper and grassy herbal hops. Medium-bodied with a rather sparkling mouthfeel. Long dryish hoppy finish (for the style) of grass, orange-peels and yeast. My kind of Tripel. chocolatokeki (1) - California, USA - MAR 10, 2008 does not count
Not a pretender; instead a defender of the faith of textbook brewing consistency. A great "everyday" Belgian Ale, exhibiting food-friendly, non-obtrusive flavors thanks to secondary bottle fermentation. Yeast is present, yet not dominant, a great introductory Belgian to turn on the uninitiated. Exceptional even-keeled mouthfeel as it cascades down the palate with conviction. An ale begging to be served with food ranging from game birds to cheese and fruit plates. RCL (2030) - Waltham, Massachusetts, USA - MAR 8, 2008
This is just superb. Coriander and yellow fruits swirl in the yeasty rich flavor. Subtle spiciness and lightly sweet. Excellent. BlackOut (43) - East End, ENGLAND - FEB 27, 2008
Big and slowly shrinking head, misty amber yellow. Typical belgian ale taste, great to have it again. Well balanced, sweet and sour mixed together, spicy flavours and lots of alcohol that I couldnt taste. Well done! johndavidj99 (125) - Dallas, Maine, USA - FEB 22, 2008
Massive sturdy head on top of a golden or "pale amber" beer. ...Anticipation before the head allows me to drink it...Yeasty/spicy nose. A decent, easy to drink, balanced beer. It has a complexity about it. Spices and fruits are dominant in the taste. Too spicy for me.

What a huge disappointment. Started out well enough with a decent nose and nice head. But the flavor had some strange perfumey elements going on through the whole bottle that was very distracting. JohnnyOS (646) - Golden, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 17, 2008
Pours golden with large white head. Aroma is sweet, floral, yeasty with a bit of apple spice. Flavor to match with a little alcohol finish. uhre (384) - DENMARK - FEB 17, 2008
The aroma has apple and a sour twist. It tastes of apples, yest and some spicies that I could not point out. gnoff (10336) - Mölndal, SWEDEN - FEB 15, 2008
(75 cl bottle purchased summer 2007 in Helsingör, Denmark) BB 23/08/08. Clear golden color, big fluffy white head. Sweet, acidic, phenolic spicy scent. Spicy, acidic, sweet taste. Alochol is well hidden. Medium mouthfeel, a bit spritzy, low bitterness. Tripplebrew (778) - Saint Paul, Minnesota, USA - FEB 8, 2008
Pours a golden honey color with particles. Very little head and just some lacing. Aroma is very light--yeast and hints of floral. Taste is light...a nice balance of bitter and dry with flavor of yeast and touches of honey. A lot of carbonation. Decent tripel.
