Bottle at Café Karpershoek Amsterdam. Huge white head, and dark orange/brown. Aroma and tastes of tropical fruit and spicy bitter at the end that tapers off. Great balance, and a beer i’ll go out of my way to drink anytime. DrZao (128) - Houston, Texas, USA - JAN 28, 2008
Bottle. Hazy golden orange. Massive white head with nice lacing. Aroma and flavor of spicy yeast mixed with abundant tropical fruits. Nice bitterness at the end. Noticeable effervescence. Warming and delicious. mgumby10 (1856) - Jupiter, Florida, USA - JAN 27, 2008
Pours a hazy ornage color with a big, foamy white head. Smells of Belgian candy sugar, some orange citrus, a little spice variation as well. Smells like a tripel. The taste was very similar although extrememly well balanced between the sweetness and the spice and citrus characters. Very well done tripel, but you would expect that coming from this brewery. Mouthfeel was pretty much perfect for this style. BEERGUY007 (206) - Scotia, New York, USA - JAN 26, 2008
Delicious! Ahh God bless the trasppistes. Nice and strong, nice head nice lace. A little citrusy and yeasty. Sweet but doesn’t cloy. Nice mouthfeel, maybe a litle bite, but appropriate to the style. 17thfloor (2444) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JAN 26, 2008
Orange/yellow pour with some big bubbles and a great creamy thick off-white head. Lots of yeast and some orange zest in the aroma. Sugary and robust, orange peel bitter, tangy yeast. Somewhat one-dimensional for a triple, odd woody burnt bitter aftertaste. Tastes like theres some potato vodka in it, the alcohol is showing through. Palate is really nice, its completely different, has a whipped texture to it.

I thought this was pretty good. Golden brown with tons of sediment and a 2 finger head. A nice bouquet and light, drinkable flavour with a slightly bitter finish. Nice spice and mouth feel. johndavidj99 (125) - Dallas, Maine, USA - JAN 20, 2008
UPDATED: MAR 1, 2008 GIANT sudsy/creamy white head! Yeasty orange aroma with hints of spices. Sweet flavor with presence of yeast and orange peel. The finish is dry and woody. The alcohol is evident in the taste. Pretty smooth and palatable as well. Not bad for an orange Tripel. Bungalo22 (326) - Bridgeport, Connecticut, USA - JAN 19, 2008
Yummy, yum, yum. Poured froma bottle into a trapisst. A dark pour and mine had little head. The aroma was roasty and the setup was great. The beer while one of the best was not the best. A very tasty after taste and just a plain out enjoyable beer. i wish I could afford one everyday. yespr (47567) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - JAN 19, 2008
33 cL bottle. Pours hazy yellow with small yeast sediments and a huge white head. Spiced, slight acidic and yeasty aroma. Flavour is the pure definition of a tripel. Smooth, spiced, slight acidic note, mild caramel malt and that yummy mellow Westmalle yeast note. All in a complex yet smooth blend - with a light bite towards the finish, just telling you that this is a 9.5% alcohol beer. Fantastic. milljam (682) - Norman, Oklahoma, USA - JAN 18, 2008
UPDATED: FEB 16, 2009 I enjoyed this beer more than the Dubbel. Slightly weak in the nose...some sweetness/fruitiness, but nothing too prevalent. The flavor is good...slightly spicy, followed by the typical Belgian candy sugar, finished with some citrus undertones. Nice alcohol warming. Overall a decent Tripel.
