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.

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.

From the 330 ml. bottle marked 16AM. From the mixed six pack. Sampled on April 14, 2014.
The pour is a cloudy looking copper pale yellow with a modest off-white head and a lot of floating sediment! I love floating sediment! Big grade for that alone.
The aroma has all the Belgian yeast, biscuit malts, meaty fruit and candied sugars you expect with a bitter bite penetrating the nose. Pear and apple for the fruit character in about that order.
Medium to full body.
The toasted biscuit malts and fruit flavors are there but muted due to the earthy hop character that roars in from the background. It finishes dry with a bitter, memorable bite. 10.5% alcohol well integrated but I felt it by the time I finished writing this review.

Not as big and bold as I would have suspected, but still pretty darn good. Pours a deep, dark amber with high fluffy head, that dissipates down to an oily sheen. Rich aroma of dried fruits and brown sugar, dark malts. Taste is more of the raisin, prune, fig with some additional mild sugary sweetness. Overall weight is a bit lighter than I would expect, but still a good Belgian nonetheless.
