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

Amber appearance - as the name would lead you to expect. Nice foam and lacing. Not a big head though.

Aroma is of booze, sweetness and some raisins and dark fruits.

Taste is quite syrupy with a bit of typical Belgian yeast. It tastes good but not terribly complex or refined. It has a fairly boozy flavour.

Mouthfeel is medium and a bit sticky.

Overall, an enjoyable Belgian beer with many typical characteristics of a strong Belgian ale. It is classed in the same category as Duvel which is a more complex and better beer to my taste. However, this beer seems to overlap a bit with Belgian strong dark ales such as Chimay blue. I guess an amber ale is halfway between a Duvel and a Chimay blue. Anyway, good but a bit boozy and not amazing in any way

My mark out of a hundred would be 83.

look: 5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.75

APPEARANCE - Peachy orange, slightly opaque. Creamy, light brown, 4-finger head that lasts, with lots of lacing

SMELL/AROMA - A little sweet, piney.

TASTE - Quite sweet, fruity, Sherry-like, and mildly piney. ABV fairly well-hidden.

MOUTHFEEL/PALATE/TEXTURE - Surprisingly well-carbonated, thick and a bit syrupy.

OVERALL - A very well balanced Tripel. The sweetness works, and the ABV doesn't hit you. Quaffable, but not chuggable. Do not limit this to dessert only.

This is one superb beer I just found it today.

Pours very well. Leaves a small amount of head. Poured into tulip glass. Smells great.

It has a great smooth sweet taste thats not too heavy with a nice sweet aftertaste. Not too sweet and not too much alcohol taste considering 12% abv.

This has just hit the list of one of my favorite beers. I have nothing negative to say about this beer. I will buy again!

Off-white head thins out with the quickness. Color is brassy and clear with a red tint in spot.

Aroma of orange, malt, yeast, fresh baked vanilla cake, some faint caramel and subtle lemon.

Sweet and creamy to the tongue with that 12% ABV trickling away almost unnoticed. Has some sugar, vanilla, orange and bitterness at the far end.

A worry free sipper that allows for pure enjoyment if you take your time.
