UPDATED: APR 1, 2008 Carbonation that reminds me of unibroue with slight notes of champagne (perhaps due to the rich carbonation and dry finish). Not too much to brag about in terms of aroma or pour - but so is the case for the majority of trips. Taste and Palate are exceptional. Ober (2811) - Bommelerwaard, NETHERLANDS - MAR 31, 2008
UPDATED: NOV 9, 2011 What is it, the queen, king or the emperor of the tripels. I dont know, But it is one of the best tripels and maybe the standard of them. It’s a golden beer. A little hazy with a thick foamed white head. Very nice aromas of malt, yeast, flowers and nice fruits like orange. The taste has also fruits like orange and some citrus, with in the back a malty taste and a nice bitternes. It’s a great beer and always a feast to drink it.

murky gold with a snappy white head. Citrus and yeast aroma. Flavor is syrupy citrus, yeast, some spice, banana, clove. Finish was very carbonated, no hint of alcohol, clean. Bragesnak (5393) - Aarhus, DENMARK - MAR 30, 2008

Beatifull colour and head. Smells of citrus and lots of yeast. Carbonation is high and so is the alcohol flavor mattmc1973 (479) - Sterling Heights, Michigan, USA - MAR 28, 2008
11.2oz bottle. Pours copper/orange, with frothy off-white head. Head lasts a while, and leaves light lacing. Aroma of citrus, smoke, and light hops. Taste is lightly sweet and moderately acidic, and finishes a bit bitter. Light to medium body, dry texture, and soft carbonation. Lighter and more quenching than some other trappist ales. Very good!

Bottle pours a cloudy golden clover honey color with a slight white head. Aroma includes citrus peel, honey, yeast, and spices. Has a sweet dry flavor that reminds me of white wine. Nice aftertaste. Lively carbonation. Illuminatus (92) - Kitchener-Waterloo, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 26, 2008
330mL bottle from the LCBO. Pours a hazy, dark gold with a big, coarse head. Very rich aroma, notes of lemon and banana. Rich, deep flavour. Mild spice up front, with thick malt at the centre. Sweet finish, with a touch of herbal hops at the end. Doesn’t have the astringency of a Chimay White. Excellent. austone (1062) - Turku; Pori, FINLAND - MAR 26, 2008
(33cl bottle, BBE 12/2007). Hazy golden yellow, lacing white head. Nose is fresh with honey, fruits and some wheat. A bit mineral tinge. Flavor has strong exotic fruits (banana, orange, mango), spices and some alcohol. Finishes chalky dry with perfumey hops and faint vinous tartness. Medium to full bodied, smooth and foamy carbonation. Nicely fruity, shows it’s ABV, but not disturbingly. I guess some bottle age has done the trick.

UPDATED: SEP 21, 2008 Fantastic tripel from Westmalle me la bevo e mi rilasso pensando a Marco Attilio Regolo e Lucio Manlio Volsone che sbarcano in Africa (al Capo Bon) nel 256 a.C. Blom (848) - Sorø, DENMARK - MAR 26, 2008
Hazy golden with a dense head. Spicy aroma with notes of coriander
citrus, straw, orange peels and yeast. The flavour is sweet and has a bit of vanilla and a fresh bitternes to complete the spicy base. Unfurtunately the alchohol is too present.
