look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Sampled in one of the back alley Brussels bars and again in Gent where it is found nearly everywhere. Nice lable on a small capped bottle. Pours a pale orange-gold body with a healthy and lasting foam. Eventually the head settles to a playful and mobile lace. Very pretty and sticky. The aroma is spicy, all spice or clove, with fresh orange and a grapefruit finish. Zesty. Taste molds spicy yeast character with a variety of fruits - peach, pineapple, and orange. Finishes with grapefruit bitterness. Mouthfeel is medium to full bodied with quite a good deal of warming character, although this never feels as boozy as it might at 9%. Mild carbonation. Very drinkable.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Smell: sweet clementines and cream

Taste: honeydew, very sweet oranges, subtle peppery spice, cream soda, and caramel apples

If you are looking for a very sweet beer with mild contrast, look no further. This beer is a perfect desertif and yearns to be paired with vanilla bean ice creme and some toasted walnuts on the side with aged white cheddar; highly recommended for the fat kid in each of us

Ordered off the menu at Cervoise in Mons, Belgium, with no info other than alcohol content. Beer came in a 330ml bottle and I poured into a tulip glass.

A - Beer poured a medium amber with orange highlights. Head was off-white and fairly persistent with good lacing. Somewhat cloudy.

S - Aroma was very strong on malt--bready, biscuity. Some dark fruit notes like plums, along with a little alcohol. Very inviting.

T - Flavors followed the aromas. Emphasis was on malt with bread and biscuits dominating. Yeast provided some fruit notes for complexity. Also some alcohol flavors.

M - Medium body, creamy carbonation. Some alcohol burn but no hops bitterness noticeable.

O - A much better beer than I expected. It is a bit farther on the amber and bready side than I normally think of with a Tripel, but it is a very enjoyable brew.

Bought in the Bierparadijs in Meer, Belgium. Expiry date 26JUL13. They changed the image on the label from a divine woman to a different symbol of divinity a painting of a chapel. Poured into a De Koninck chalice.

Pours a really thin head for a Belgium beer, just half a finger or so that reduces to almost nothing in a few seconds. Before it dissapears one can wittness a very fine foam that is resembled in very fine and lots of carbonation. The head is a lovely brownish white and the body has a rich amber.

Smell is of malt, grass, yeast.

While still a tripel with its nice balance of sweet, sour and bitter with sometimes bitterness sometimes sweetness dominating a little bit, there is also something of a dubbel/quadrupel with its taste of bread and plums.

You really get this fine carbonation as it smoothly tickles. Wish there was more foam as it was almost like a cream. Smooth!

Like this one quite a lot. It is a hybrid of a Tripel and a Quadruppel in color, taste and smell. Not a bad choice for such cold summer as it is this year. There is a lot that is good and the only disappointment is the minimal but great foam. Get me more foam and this is one of the greatest in my humble opinion.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3

Poured from the bottle into a tulip glass. An amber triple huh? Interesting....

Certainly a reddish brown body which is a first for my eyes, slightly cloudy with some pin head rising carbonation. Head is sort of off white and foamy and a light tan. Lost of snapping carbonation on the pour and head makes only about two fingers, sort of soapy, slowly falling to a sudsy collar. Some suspended flakes of yeast in the body.

Smells like a doppelbock. Toffee and sticky malts, lots of spicy sweet nutmeg on this, dry clove and brown spices. Dry sense coming somewhat not unlike a Belgian Strong Dark Ale. Smells good doesn't remind me of a tripel.

Taste is very malty sweet and rich. It's also quite boozy hot and alcohol strong. Mouthfeel isn't wet, but there's a strong sugar coating light syrup quality to this. Thick dark malt action with lots of candied sugar. THe heat comes off mixing and becoming more noticeable with repeated sips. Dry burnt clove aftertaste comes through a bit, but hard to get with all the sweetness everywhere.

Overall, it's a booze bomb, and not far too sweet tasting. I'd pass on this one.

11.2 oz bottle. Reviewed on phone.

Appearance: slightly cloudy and dark amber. Small head that fades to nothing.

Smell: sweet caramel with an edge of fruity tart apple cider. Another dark Belgian beer that smells sickly sweet.

Taste: sweet caramel with a bit of fruit. Alcohol and hop dryness in the finish.

Mouth feel: at first it's thick and sugary but later becomes dry. The body is dryer than the taste and smell would lead one to believe.

Overall, it's just another dark Belgian beer that tastes like it hasn't finished fermenting: too much syrup and sugar.

11.2oz bottle served into a russian river glass

date of 12.06.10 on the bottle

pours a honey nut brown. small but retentive head

smells of honey, floral bouqet, belgian yeast, and malts

taste starts off with spices, followed by a honey sweetness, and finishes with malty and slight hoppiness

mouthfeel is a tad heavy

overall not too shabby for a triple.
