Appearance is a bronze color. Aroma is a nice blend of cherries, grapes, and vanilla. Flavor has a nice warming effect with dark fruit flavors and some alcohol noticeable. My complaint with this beer is the metallic aftertaste like it came from a can. This would be an excellent beer if that metallic taste was not present. It tastes like the foil on the outside of the bottle was also part of the brewing process. The Duinen Dubbel is much better.

Nice golden, hazy color. Bitter and metallic taste. Quite unlike the other tripels I've tasted.

JK (6280) - St. Louis Park, Minnesota, USA - NOV 23, 2003
Aroma of malt. Appearance is brown and cloudy with a medium sized head. Flavor of sweet malt and salt. Medium body. Expensive for what it has to offer, but good.

750 ml. white painted bottle. No freshness date seen. Poured out a murky, cloudy, light orange color. Had a huge head that slowly faded to a generous lacing. Strong aromas of yeast, and a strange off aroma as well. Tasted ok, but nothing to write home about. Spicy hops in the mix. Fairly strong aftertaste, had an odd orange aftertaste as well. Slight metallic notes as well. Certainly not the best Belgian I've ever had.

harlequinn (2744) - Tacoma, Washington, USA - SEP 23, 2003
I was looking forward to this and was slightly disappointed. A golden colored amber with a huge creamy head. The pour is great but the aroma is wonderful. The taste however is not. This one however is quite strong in the achohol dept. I just have had many better trippels than this.

TheDean (786) - MIlwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 21, 2003
Yea...number 200...another milestone. Nice pour and a good, fruity smell. However, this doesn't have the flavor of the Delirium I had right before it. A decent beer, but not worth the price. It does have a nice little kick though, as I am having some serious problems typing...

2.6
wunderbier (1434) - Tampere, FINLAND - AUG 14, 2003
33 cL bottle, goblet. Tall, fizzy head settles quickly but is mostly lasting after that. First pour reveals a medium gold body with a slight haze. Yeast is of earth and cobwebs. Caramel, nutty malt. Light citric hops. Apple, pear, banana, vanilla, and white wine are also present. Moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter flavor. Moderately sweet, moderately acidic, lightly bitter finish. Mild astringency, moderate carbonation. Medium, oily body. As a whole, the flavor is quite medicinal. The bottom line is: I don't think I was imagining those tasty aromas, so that makes this one hugely disappointing beer.

3.5
loweredsixth (946) - Clovis, California, USA - AUG 13, 2003
Pours a murky orangeish yellow color with lots of odd looking floaties...small white head. The aroma had some nice fruity tones with a sour background. The flavor was fuller than the aroma...plenty of perfume, yeast, fruit, sour. The feel was nice and bubbly, but a bit too thick and heavy for this style. Not bad.
