Think I might be the first person in the US to review this one. Snagged it from Wegmans after trolling their website and finding that they have exclusive rights in the US to sell this beer. Bought a 4 pack of 11.2oz bottles for $11.99. Poured this beer into a tall glass. Golden color with wheat specs and bubbles throughout the brew. Opaque. Descent amount of carbonation which is a characteristic of most Belgians. Sweet floral bouquet with those flavors coming through on the palate with the first sip. Slight amount of bitterness but not that much. Very carbonated when sipping. Great triple ranks high up there.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

From a 330 ml bottle to a snifter.

A: pours a hazy gold with a small one finger head that stays longer than I would have expected. It takes a while, but eventually. It does break and you are left with a thin layer of foam.

S: spices such as cloves, anise and cinnamon. There are notes of yeast and some malts as well.

T: the spices come through on the front along with some banana and then malts finish.

M: medium carbonation and body. The alcohol comes through a little strong though.

O: this could be a better beer if the alcohol didn't come through so strong. It just sort of was, nothing spectacular and nothing too disappointing.

Amber blonde color, with a white foam, a bit too quick to fall down. Clean.
In the smell a lot of fruitiness, strong, ripe, tropical. Pineapple and melon. Too sweet.
Same for the taste, sweet, malty, honey.
Definitely too sweet. Again a lot of fruitiness.
Useless body, sweet and infinite aftertaste (not a good thing).

3.81/5  rDev +4.7%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Huge head, nice and golden going to light amber. Lots of chunks floating about. Smells like fruitcake, a bit floral also. Mostly it gives the impression of something really sweet.
And it is. Huge malty sweetness, big caramel and honey, toffee and Belgian sugars. Faint licorice too. Nice and fruity, with citrus (sweet oranges, tangerines), acidic (red apple, yellow pear) and banana. Spicy yeasts, giving off big clove and some prickly pepper. The acidity is helped by a more than milder fizz, maybe a bit unpleasant considering it's also a little bit boozy. The bitterness is top notch, though, nice herbal hops leaving a bittersweet aftertaste, that lingers for a while.
A really tasty tripel, quite unbalanced, but it has a certain appeal, hitting perfectly some of the notes.

330 ml. bottle, pours a copper-golden colour, with a small head and almost no retention. Smell of fried potatoes... no wait, that's my neighbour cooking. OK, now the window is closed, smell of caramel, citrus,spices, fennel and some notes of oak barrel. Very soft palate, maybe a bit watery. Taste is more or less the same as aroma, with the feeling that you're drinking a liquor rather than a beer. Maybe not completely balanced, but it's a very good beer.

Wow. Reading through these reviews, I can only conclude that aging affects this beer immensely. Some of the reviews mention the awesome amount of sediment I experienced, yet some of th completely ignore this unmistakeable feature. Other reviews mention massive head, where I poured almost none. And even more notable is the difference in flavors experienced, with some people mentioning citrus (really?) and bread, where I had a completely different experience.

So here is my review.

My bottle (330cl) was dated best by January, 2013, and I am drinking it in August. ABV is listed at 8%.

The barman nearly poured the beer into a water glass, and I told him to stop! Finally i poured it myself into a Leffe chalice, which is acceptable. No proper tulip available.

The first thing I noticed was the lack of head. There was about half a finger, which reduced to surface film within 20 seconds.

I smelled, and what I smelled was not unpleasant, but was quite surprising, expecting the complex notes of a Tripel. I smelled a sweetness which I later attributed to toasted marshmallow. There were, contrary to other reviews here, no noticeable fruity or yeasty notes. Just a slightly smoky toasted marshmallow.

Then I tasted it, and got more of that toasted marshmallow, with sweet caramel, but despite all that, it did not taste at all too sweet. Still no citrus, no banana, just a little yeastiness, and a nice alcohol kick that blended quite well.

Mouth feel was average, great carbonation for a past date pour (it's bottle conditioned, so it should be), and... What's that?

Then I looked more closely. My God, I've never seen so much sediment in a beer. Someone mentioned Mott's unfiltered apple juice, and that's a good description. Very interesting to look at and to drink. I took a nice photo up against the light (why the hell doesn't BA allow photo uploads?) and continued enjoying my not quite Tripel marshmallow brew.

That was the last bottle at this bar. This is a beer I'll have to revisit. When I do, I'll post the results here.
