Sampled from 22oz bottle. A nice, good tasting Belgian. Dark golden color pour, with a fluffy head. Aroma sweet malts, sugar, spices (cloves) and a touch of yeast. Flavor is sweet malts, flavor, touches of bitterness, tinge of hops. Smooth, pretty good. SudsMcDuff (8523) - .....Manchester United.........., Texas, USA - AUG 6, 2010
A very nice tripel, Pours a medium gold, with fantastic foam, and lacing .. . light for the style but just as complex- light yeast, cider, honey, and dry apricots .. . light bitter finish that leaves you wanting more, good stuff. .. Can you tell me where the pube fair is? after4ever (8025) - Mukilteo, Washington, USA - MAR 14, 2009
22. Thanks, Riverside! Crystal clear bright dark gold. Very thin filmy head. Big green apple, toffee, and dust nose, joined by a bit of banana. Very much the classic tripel, other than the hefeweisen intruder. Crisp, sparkling body. Green apple, toffee, dust, and lots of banana on the mid-palate. The banana is a weird addition. Mild sweet finish.

Bottle from a trade with WeeHeavySD. Pours with a small white head and a clear golden body. Aroma is fruity and very dry with pears, apples, and a bit of spice. Taste is apples, dry with coriander and other spices. Dryish mouthfeel, light carbonation. Ernest (7864) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - OCT 28, 2003
Head is initially small, fizzy, off-white, fully diminishing. Body is dark yellow. Aroma is moderately malty (toasted grain, bread, cookie), lightly hoppy (flowers), moderately yeasty (cobwebs, mold), with notes of sugar, pineapple, clove, and alcohol. Flavor is heavily sweet, moderately acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is moderately sweet, moderately acidic, moderately bitter. Medium body, watery/syrupy texture, lively carbonation, lightly alcoholic. The usual Stone small/dying head and dullish body makes the appearance a little depressing, but the aroma and flavor balance are decent. As I worked my way through an 8oz pour, the syrupy sweet quality eventually became overbearing, so there's no way I could ever stomach an entire 75cl bottle of this.

Tragic circumstances surround this beer, but I'm gald I was able to help the cause by purchasing (trading for) a bottle. It pours a rich golden with a thin layer of white head. Has nowhere near the amount of carbonation of some tripels I've had, but this is a good thing. Aroma of sweet bready Belgian malts, authentic Belgian yeast, and a touch of spice. Nice thick syrupy body with some small bubbled carbonation throughout. Light fruity flavor and a very mild bitterness. Clean, crisp warming finish. Very true to style. It's nice to see Stone branch out and succeed at it too. Thanks jcalabre!
