A very lovely triple, All you can ask for.
nice bright head, with a lovely amber body. No yeast sediment left at the bottle apparently not bottle fermented.
Purchased from Whip In in Austin.
All in all a very nice triple, good fruit tones.
Lovely accompaniment to indian food (G'Raj Mahal)

First had: on tap at Teresa's, Wayne, PA

Poured into a signature stem glass, this beer poured a hazy golden-peach color with a finger's width of delicate white bubbles for a head. Nice retention and lacing. Aroma of sweet, ripe fruit, candi sugar, and light yeast. Flowery! Light taste, but very dynamic nonetheless, with juicy, fruity sweetness, peaches and pears, light sugar and honey, with more of the yeasty banana-like phenols manifesting mid- to end-palate, and just a hint of spice. Alcohol is noticeable, but with everything else that's going on, it really has very little bite at all. Very impressive and tasty. Light-medium mouthfeel, perfectly balanced, and very drinkable.

Officially one of my favorite tripels.

A: nice looking, a golden color very bright as expected including a very big an white creamy head, bubbles are small and compact and dissipates slowly, carbonation is abundant making a permanent layer on top of the beer. The body is medium and cloudy.

S: fruits can be sensed at the moment also malty smell is present with little hops and finally alcohol.

T: the flavors are intense, spicy in general not very fruity as the smell also alcohol is sensed.

M: a nice and easy beginning turning to a little harsh bitterness not to pleasant according to the style.

Had this one on tap at TJs. Poured into a 10 oz tulip.

The body is slightly hazy, light straw with maybe a hint of dirty straw color. The head is incredible...fluffy, creamy, and full. It takes the bartender a couple of trips back to the tap to fill the glass, as the head has a life of its own. When it comes to me, it measures 1 inch in height, about half of that above the rim.

The aroma and taste are similar...A touch of coriander is my immediate impression, but looking closer, there are hints of white pepper and clove, in proportion enough to be perceptible and also flattering to the beer. There is an underlying sweetness that I would describe as light brown sugar, but it isn't quite that. Call it halfway between white sugar and light brown sugar. The fruity esters are phenomenal. Apples, mainly, but also some pears and peaches all contribute to both the flavor and the aroma profile. Nary a hint of alcohol, this is a very approachable tripel, but at the same time is completely unique to the style. This beer brings a lot to the table.

Lively carbonation accentuates the mouthfeel, leaving an almost creamy feel to it. It goes down smoothly, and way too easily. This is a very good tripel, and I would certainly get it again.

On tap at La Cerveteca in Barcelona on 11 april 2011. 

Deep amber body, fluffy head, minute bubbles, lacing unexceptional but there. 

Aroma of candy sugar and caramelization in a Belgian blonde or a faded IPA. 

Flavors of perfumey booze, dusty fermented apricots, honey and faded hops. Again that blandness, or resemblance of an old IPA. No spicing to speak of — of which to speak — and remarkably unlike a "normal" tripel. 

Mouthfeel is toward thick and full. Carbonation is moderate.

MJ's rare beer club selection a while back... Figured I'd try one.
Served in duvel tulip.

Really pretty dark-- an orangey amber color tgat shows lots of apricot hues when held up to the light. It's hazy... just barely translucent.
Smells peppery... Touch of clove... Belgian yeast... Yeah, it's a triple. The flavor follows suit of the nose, but I'll admit this is FAR from my favorite triple. The pronounced booziness is too much for one, and the body is too full. It could also use more carbonation.
The finish is a bit too dry and spicy for my liking.

Overall... Meh. This is not impressing me.

A-Pours a hazy amber with a little it of thin white head that leaves just a bit of white head at the edge of the glass.

S-Sweet apricots and candied pineapple. Some Belgian yeast gives a nice underlying zing.

T-Sweet, perhaps a bit overly so but not cloying. Lots of sweet fruit, candi sugar and a good helping of malt backbone.

M-Medium bodied not terribly dry, undercarbonated for the style.

O-Not really close to style in many ways, color, carbonation, sweetness, but a tasty beverage nonetheless.
