Musky, sharp, yeasty, bread like and citrus aroma. Lively looking ale with excellent carbonation, a pale hazy color and a firm white head. Supremely balanced flavor with a bit of tartness, some yeast, a touch of malt, and a little smooth sweetness. Finishes slightly dry. Very nice. I did get a bit of a metallic flavor though and the body could be punched up a liitle, if one wants to be critical. A previous rating compares it to a cross of Duvel and a Trippel, which I think is quite accurate.

The bottle started foaming immediately after I opened it so I quickly poured the beer into my Chimay Trappist glass and watched the outrageous carbonation go to work. This beer pours a rich golden hue with a quickly dissipating white head (no lacing), thousands of Champagne character bubbles, and small chunks of sediment suspended throughout the body. Initially the nose is very yeasty and Champagne-like but after a few sniffs heavy malt fragrance, sweet fruit, and alcohol aromas make their own appearances. Any hops aroma is sadly absent. Flavor, yeasty, hoppy, and malty; this beer has a very well rounded palate! Initially I was impressed as all hell and after closer inspection here is what I found: Alcohol flavor is quite pronounced throughout the palate. While yeast flavors dominate the first sip, subsequent sips reveal an abundance of hops and malt flavor. Finish is dry with a satisfying bite at the very end. Overall, I have mixed feelings about this beer but I’m glad I had a chance to try it. I’d drink it again, but it would have to be on just the right occasion.... One last thought: This beer would probably go very well with roast duck.

Beautiful cloudy blond with a huge, fluffy white head. Aroma of candy sugar, banana and a hint of alcohol. Flavor is good, a slight bitterness with lots of spice and fruit. Mouthfeel slightly reminiscent of Aventinus. Very nice.

Not my favourite interpretation of a tripel but very enjoyable. Pale, hazt and golden with a very thin white head. The flavour is where this beer loses me somewhat. It’s very good but it’s dry and spicy. I prefer tripels with more tropical fruit flavour, still quite good with that typical and enjoyable Unibroue yeast flavour.

Hazy golden, with a thick white head. Crispy, dry with a nice bitterness. Tastes like a mix of Duvel and a good tripel.

On opening a big sweet candy nose hits you before the pour. Lots of bubbles,highly carbonated,big 2inch off white head.cloudy amber/yellow/orange colour,with a yeasty nose on the pour. Nice bite to start with on the taste.Great blend of flavors,the most noticeable being citrus.,followed by cooking sugar and yeast(spice,mainly pepper),leaves a warming trail down the throat and in the stomach. This beer has balls to spare....a good one.

UPDATED: AUG 24, 2005 Hazy bright yellow pour, forming a thick creamy head. Yeasty and spicy with a full body and complex yet delicate flavor. Lots of kick well hidden but noticeable with 9% alcohol. An excellent and memorable beer. Definite buy again. ... 12/23/2004....Rerate. Well I have certainly bought more of these since my original rating. They just seem to get better and better. An excellent triple which I am quite fond of.

Bottled, Stockholm Beer Festival. Hazy golden. Starts off weakly but slowly it explodes into an orgie of sweet oranges. Rich malty. Lingering finish.

NosirIwont (2535) - Frederikssund, DENMARK - OCT 10, 2004
Bottle. Hazy pale orange colour. Thick white head, which disappears quickly. Acidic aroma. Yeast. Alcohol. The flavour is very acidic (citrus) in the beginning and ends in a nice bitterness in the aftertaste. In between there is alcohol, coriander and ’gajoler’ (a Danish licorice for sore throats). Like a high alcohol wheat beer.

Pours a hazy golden yellow, with a thick creamy smooth off white head.
lots of champange like carbonation. Not much lace. Aroma is fruity, yeasty, bready, orangy. Flavor is citrusy, spicy,fruity, with a little bit of hops on the end. warming alcohol.
Champange like mouthfeel, bubbly but with a creamy quality to the finish.
