A nice tripel, different than others Ive had so far. Nice, slightly cloudy pour, light yellow. Not too strong in the aroma, a little sour, wine like. Taste is the spicey tripel with its unique, smooth malt taste, and to me, a little more toastiness in the malts. Alcohol shows a bit, adding a little tingle to the mouthfeel. Fruitiness and spice are in there too, no hops that jump out to me as hops, though Im sure theyre there, helping those wacky ester flavours coming out in the right manner. Not especially yeasty and pungent to me, like some tripels are, but there definitely is a bit of that character.

GreatLibations (1854) - Last Supper, Arizona, USA - JAN 31, 2006
UPDATED: JAN 3, 2007 Pours a waxy, slightly hazed pale yellow w/ full creamy froth that recedes slowly. Aromas of banana malt and apple cream. Full nectar w/ ample residual effers. A rich and creamy triple with strong flavors yet not enough lucious sweetness to balance it out. Alcohol flavors are forward. Finish is bittered from the peach pit spectrum. A good ale.

antzman (316) - Clarksville, Indiana, USA - JAN 29, 2006
Bottle. Pours a muddled gold with a fizzy head... takes a few minutes to settle down. The aroma is a bit sweet. The taste is excellent.... spicy, full of yeasts. Maybe Canada does make a good beer afterall!

HazelRah (276) - Summerland, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 29, 2006
Poured a cloudy gold with a slick head. Aroma in a word: sweet. The head was as solid as Ive seen. Fills the mouth with warmth. Theres some fruitiness and spicy alcohol but Ive yet to detect a ton of complex flavours that others have.

BitchesBrew (716) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JAN 28, 2006
[12 oz. bottle] Pours a nice golden color. Nice white head that lasts. Flavors are spicy, very dominant yeasts. Still, quite nice with food.

illinismitty (2271) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - JAN 25, 2006
UPDATED: SEP 23, 2007 Bottle. Pours cloudy orange with white head. Complex aroma of pepper, celery salt, and yeast. Flavor is sweet with flavors of citrus and subtle spices. Nice smooth finish with the alcohol well hidden, unlike other tripels that have that dry rubbing alcohol flavor. A very easy tripel to drink, and perfect introduction to the style for anyone looking to broaden their palate. It is almost like an imperial wit.

beerledgend (1196) - Waterloo, Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - JAN 23, 2006
cloudy pale yellow straw colour, with big fluffy whit head. Tonight thansk to snata was big beer night. For Unibroue i found it to be more yeasty with hints of tropical flavours.

henry3r (586) - Wichita, Kansas, USA - JAN 21, 2006
The bottle poured a hazy (bottle conditioned) light amber beverage with an average sized frothy white head that diminished after a few minutes to a small persistent head and left good lacing on the glass. The aroma was complex and well balanced with notes of cotton candy, pepper, peaches, and alcohol. There is also just a hint of earth way in the background. The body was medium-full with lively carbonation and a slightly oily texture. The flavor starts off lightly sweet and spicy. The finish is wonderfully long, has a nice alcohol warmth and the subtle sweetness lasts throughout.

Panzerfaust (845) - Hanga Roa, Easter Island, CHILE - JAN 20, 2006
UPDATED: APR 17, 2006 Pours a cloudy and light amber color with a big white, frothy head that shows medium retention and leaves a good lacing. Aroma is spicy and fruity with notes of lime, peaches, pears, green apples, white wine and coriander. There are also some hidden touches of palm syrup and wheat. Flavor is also strong and well-rounded. It has a powerful and sweet start with some cane sugar, citrus and spices becoming more complex towards the end. The finish shows a more bittersweet and alcoholic character with some tropical fruits too. Mouthfeel is refreshingly astringent and full bodied. Its crisp but alcohol overpowers a little. Pleasant aftertaste. A strong fine and complex tripel, but not the best from Unibroue.
