Is this the improvement of the Gulden Draak 9000 Quadruple?

I call this one the best tripel I tasted in 2013.

L: okay ofcourse because of the hops; amber colour tells that this isn't a regular hoppy beer;
S: this is interesting! What is it? I conclude that it's a tiny bit of almond between lots of...malts. And the last thing is ofcourse also quite astonishing for a hop-called-beer.
T: malt, caramel, herbs, almond, orange, alcohol;
M: AWESOME!! The best heavy beer (10,5%) I've ever tasted; the sweets, the malts, the bitterishness, perfectly combined with the heavy alcohol wich doesn't hit you in the face; perfect carbonation; very, very drinkable.
O: Great, great beer. Is it so rare that nobody rates this one? Try it. My topper of 2013.

Poured from a green label 750 ml corked bottle into a Duvel tulip glass.

Appearance: Pours a hazy golden orange with a lot of rising bubbles. Big two finger off white head which slowly settles into a thinner creamy layer. Leaves a lot of lacing.

Smell: A yeasty and fruit Belgian aroma with hints of spice along with citrus and earthy hops. Upfront scent of Belgian yeast with spicy hints of clove, peppers, and funk. Pale malt with hints of wheat, grains, caramel, straw, and biscuit. Floral and earthy hops with hints of damp grass. Citrus hop hints of orange, lemon zest, pineapple, and melon. Big Belgian fruit hints of green apple, pear, white grape, and banana. Also some hints of bubblegum and Belgian candied sugar along with some alcohol. A pretty good aroma.

Taste: Like it smells, a fruity and yeasty Belgian taste with big notes of spice, citrus, and earthy hops. Big upfront presence of Belgian yeast with spice notes of clove, pepper, and farmhouse funk. Pale malt with notes of grains, straw, wheat, biscuit, and caramel. Moderate floral and earthy hop presence with some grassy notes. Citrus fruit notes of lemon, orange, pineapple, and melon. Dried fruit notes of pear, green apple, banana, and white grape. Notes of bubblegum and sweet Belgian candied sugar. A very good Belgian taste.

Mouthfeel: Medium to full bodied with a fairly high level of carbonation. Juicy, spicy, and somewhat prickly with a drying finish. Some alcohol heat is felt but it isn’t overly hot.

Overall: A very good twist on the Piraat Ale. The added hops aren’t overpowering but add a nice juicy and floral kick.

330ml bottle into tulip.

A: Pours a deep honey color with a huge, airy, and fluffy off-white head that took forever to fade into rocky film. Sticky wisps of lace were left down the glass.
S: Belgian yeast, bright, leafy hops, peppery spice, doughy malt, and slight golden fruit. I get just a touch of caramel and alcohol as well.
T: Belgian yeast is again at the forefront with doughy and spicy flavors alongside clove and slight bubblegum. The hops are green, earthy, and spicy, and I get just a touch of mint as well. This is the perfect mix between spicy yeast and hops. The aftertaste is tingly, sweet, and juicy.
M: Medium-full body, tingly and bubbly carbonation, slick and chewy mouthfeel with a viscous kiss of booze. Drinks well.
O: Flavorful and surprisingly drinkable given the ABV. I thought this was balanced and well executed. A great alternative to the original.
