it’s got a kick like a mule! a silent mule. 5 of these on new years and I was gone... but not until midway through the 5th. luckily I had one left over and can comment on it now. definitely a citrus beer with a slight tartness. highly recommended.

when choosing a non-belgian tripel, this and the alllagash triple are always my two finalists. sometimes i just have to get both! goes down very easily, be careful, if you drink a 4 pack you’re zonkers! a very tasty lead up to said zonkers. xproudfoot (750) - Paleolithic, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 2, 2006
Bottle. New year’s champagne substitute. Much better than champagne! Golden orange with some fizzy bubbles. Tastes like a dozen fruits, pears peaches and more, slightly sweet and fizzy, goes down easy, just the way I like it. Unibroue rules.

Word! The alcohol is well hidden in this beer which smelled almost like a wheat beer with its hint of orange peel and coriander but the taste exuberates an interesting blend of yeasts along with what my nose detected. I had this in a bottle from a Unibroue sampler case. It isn’t as heavy tasting as triples I’m accostumed to drinking as far as ingredients (not alcohol). But it was definately worth having. wilkie (1208) - Raleigh, North Carolina, USA - DEC 28, 2005
Bottle. Very cloudy, orange body, with medium white head. Yeasty aroma, flavor similar. Spice at end, and citrus (like orange peel).

Nice pour with a crisp light gold color and a ton of fizzy head. Buttery fruit aroma with a touch of citrus. Flavor is spicy sweet with coriander, lemon, butter, some peppery bite and a yeast quality that is quite belgian. Fizzy and bubbly in the mouth with a fair medium body. Crisp and refreshing with only a clue of the 9% ABV. A great brew at the right temperature...too cold and a lot of the character is lost. One of my favorites from Unibroue. jgentgesdo (694) - Tulsa, Oklahoma, USA - DEC 28, 2005
Pours golden, cloudy with too much head. Nose is floral with some citrus and creamy overtones. Flavor is sweet and honeyed, with some mildly cloying bitterness towards the end. I get grapefruit and sweet candy flavors as well. Mouthfeel is maybe a little thin for a tripel. Pretty good stuff. patrick767 (4197) - fort wayne, Indiana, USA - DEC 24, 2005
UPDATED: APR 21, 2006 bottle - Pours with a thick head, moderate staying power. Aroma seems to be a fairly typical citrusy Belgian scent, but it’s decent. At the initial taste I feared the fruit elements were stronger than I like, but it warmed on me. The palate was a bit disappointing, I think mostly because to me it was too bubbly. This is a very good beer. It is not, however, a great beer like the previous Unibroue brew I tried, the Trois Pistoles. DerWeg (1715) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 24, 2005
UPDATED: DEC 30, 2005 Elements of a greatness not quite realized, perhaps needed more ageing. Pours effervescently carbonated and sligtly turbid. Jangly hop bitterness and a slight alcohol bite overwhelm initial impressions that do in time give way to a subtle deep, shapely malty sweetness and evocations of dried dark and tropical fruits. Citric acid aroma. Fine but flavor lacks cohesion until I come back to the bottle several hours later, when it seems more ’together’. Hmm, maybe too carbonated? jujubeast6000 (854) - Houston, Texas, USA - DEC 23, 2005
750mL bottle: Pours a golden cloudy yellow-orange color, very large white head, good lacing, aroma of citrus, hops. Smooth flavor, carbonated, semi-bitter, kind of flat (might be old), slightly acidic aftertaste.
