elektrikjester (90) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - JUL 22, 2010
Pours a dark gold, with an ever so slight cloudiness. Head is slight, white, and foamy--dissipates quickly with a little lacing. Aroma is a bit restrained at first, but becomes more pronounced as the beer warms. Complex, some fruits (apricot, apple) and spice, with the aroma of alcohol discernible. Taste is a mix of fruit (again apple and apricot) and spice at first, but quickly giving way to alcohol with a mildly grassy, hoppy character at the end. Becomes slightly more tolerable as the beer warms. Mouthfeel is lively--a slightly sharp, fizzy carbonation that can get in the way of flavor a bit, but is pleasant in its own right. Overall, its a good beer and faiy faithful to the Belgian tripel style. That said, Id say the promising flavor up front is a bit undone by an overly bitter aftertaste. I should point out that this is an extremely potent beer, but it drinks rather quickly, so watch out. Good, worthy even, but not quite in the same league with authentic Belgian tripels.

Shared 12 oz. bottle. Pours clear gold with a white head. Aroma of Belgian spice, yeast, fruit. Taste is bubble gum, fruit, clove, Belgian spice, yeast, honey notes. Alcohol is well hidden - this could be dangerous. Excellent.

Aroma: light belgian spice with some apple juice; Appearance: clear golden pour with thin white head that dissipates quickly; Taste: brighter and more complex than aroma; tons of additional spice; Palate: medium body with long spicy finish; Overall: not my favorite tripel but decent.

Has a sweet malted taste, with a a strong bite for a finish. A delicious end to an evening.

Goodness above, Thats a crashing amount of things going on, Lovely aroma does not prepare you for the explosion in the mouth of softness and a giant harshness and tart dryness that flows, sweet, sharp, soft and brutish. Loved it !

Oh man, my review vanished.

Pours a golden color. Lots of sediment, and chunks floating about. Big ones, small ones, some as big as your head is white, took several attempts to pour it all into the glass.

Aroma is bready, spicy, banana, grape, brown sugar, yeast.

Taste is much of the same. Yeast, coriander. Brown sugar, banana. Ooh, touch of vanilla. Banana.

Mouthfeel is medium bodied. You taste and feel the alcohol right away. Well, not so much taste it, but detect it. Smooth, but slightly astringent.

Overall, this is pretty good. I like it. Its both easy and hard to drink. I would probably buy it again, if the price was right.

adavis234 (287) - Charleston, South Carolina, USA - MAR 20, 2017
Nice golden pour with a light, white head and a little haziness. Flavor is yeasty and sweet - a spicy fruit flavor with hints of honey and a soft alcohol finish. Perhaps not the finest beer but a very enjoyable experience nonetheless.

Rune (12071) - Troms, NORWAY - MAR 9, 2017
355ml can picked up at Vinmonopolet Hamar. A near-clear warm golden body, fair white head, clingy lacing. Rather strong aroma of spiced fruit, with scent of alcohol. Mixed taste profile of citrus peels, mid-sweet malts, and alcohol. Dried fruity ending. Well bodied and rather smooth. Decent stuff, not exactly easy to drink (Shared with friends 04.03.2017).
