4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: OCT 23, 2005 Bottle. Somewhat hazy amber/orange. White full head. Very strong, pungent aroma; citrusy, sweet, wheat flavor, dominated by alcohol taste. Somewhat bitter. Fruity notes. Good warming, sipping beer.
From Sep 2006
Poured from 750ml (notched L4-03) light gold with a medium sized head of foam that sharank down to a fine layer quickly. Plenty of lacing....
The smell has strong notes of sweet caramel mixed with some alcohol.
The taste is less sweet than the nose indicated. There *is* some caramel malt there along with fruity tones of plum, apple, and cherry and a good kick of lemony sourness near and through the finish. The alcohol is also noticeable and does have a warming effect but it doesn't dominate so we're ok there.
Bottom line: A good Tripel that's worth having from time to time.

Deep golden color. Sweet malty body of bread, oranges and slightly winey. Sweet malty finish. Too sweet and simple NiklasT (81) - SWEDEN - AUG 13, 2017
Golden, like clear honey with thin head. Spicy, yeasty aroma, a bit dry. Taste also fruity, more dry than some other tripels. Almond, sweetness only at the end, well balanced with the bitterness. tderoeck (10001) - Gent, BELGIUM - AUG 11, 2017
