Purchased at Sams, poured into a biere de miel glass nice thick white head that dissipates into fat uneven lumps. Theres nice thin, yet dense lacing. The color is a hazy translucent blond orange, that has slight peach tones when held in-front of light. Smells of pale malt sweetness, pineapple juice, citrus no real hop sharpness, maybe a couple hidden notes of bread and an underlying yet well covered alcohol tinge.
Taste is a tinge cloying yet not too bad, starts with a big medium malt sweetness, then some sweet mild tart lemon bread, then a crispness on the swallow followed by some alcohol warmth. Flavor wise pretty malty, fruity, tasty and backed by strong alcohol boost in the after taste. Leaves a little film or residue on your tongue, which I haven't decided if I like yet, but what ever. This is definitely not a witkap style tripel and might be a little too much for some, but I think its a nice interpretation. Also the esters are a bit different than you'd find in your typical tripel mainly lack of banana, but all and all this is good enough for me to drink every now and then.

Really a beautiful beer. Nice deep straw color, just barely orange. Healthy carbonation but head is maybe 1cm max. I want more on a big tripel! But I can quickly raise a 4-5 cm head on it so maybe its the glass...

Nose is nice too. Big esters. Big bananas. A bit bready too...might just be the yeast notes though. Also some nice candi sugar scents.

Big flavor!! Very nice. The alcohol is really quite noticeable and you can feel it on your breath...but that's ok..I want that in a big beer. Nice mellow fruitiness on the palette...not as big as on the nose. Really smooth sweetness that is not cloying at all. Just a touch bitter in the finish...really superb.

Mouthfeel is right on. Perfect. Smooth but not sticky sweet. Nice carbonation level really lifts up the body and helps bring out the flavors nicely.

Very drinkable.

This is an outstanding strong tripel. Really fantastic.

Had a nice appearance. Copperish color and nice head. Got lots of citrus and some sort of spice and it flowed into the glass. Got that big taste initially then the citrus and clove flavors took over. The bottle we has was a gift and had just reached is date (which makes me think it was a regift) We will have to try this again with a new bottle because what I am reading and what I am tasting do not seem to match.

Even before I had a chance to take a look at this beer in its chalice, I caught a strong waft of alcohol. It definitely looks tasty, with a very light head, a beautiful golden colour that's only slightly cloudy, with perhaps an abnormal amount of carbonation.

Like I said, the alcohol is pretty much all I smell in this beer save a note bready malt. Its above average, but not by much.

The taste is OK, but it seems to be missing something. Its easy to tell how much alcohol is there for sure. Lots of malt character, and the belgian yeast shines through.

This Triple is relatively dry and has lots of carbonation, which makes for a good mouthfeel. Overall, however, I'm not sure how much of a fan I am of this beer. Maybe I'll buy one again if nothing better is available.

750 mL brown bottle.

Dark amber with a thick white head. Nice lacing.

Sweet, malty aroma with a bit of spice.

Starts off sugary but quickly dries out into a sharp astringency. Definite presence of harsh alcohol. Lingering sourness. Thin-bodied with a high level of carbonation.

Very disappointing. Especially since I love Maredsous 8.
