Tried from tap. Pours deep amber, almost brown, hazy with a very nice white foam head. Smell is complex, rich, alcoholic, hoppy, sweet and malty, spices and fruit esters from the wheat malt and belgian yeast. Taste is great, intense, bitter, sweet, well balanced and strong at the alcohol. Overall great belgian beer, from tap is amazing.

Sweet and delicious. Not as hoppy as I was expecting with the triple hop title.

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.

From 2d2despuma. In Teku glass. Watching Captain America The First Avenger. Delicious stone fruityness, with high ABV perfectly well hidden that compensates swetness perfectly, inviting to long sips

330 ml bottle (exp. 03/2017), poured in a Leffe tulip. Very light amber and clear liquid, if you don't mess with the sediments in the bottom of the bottle (which I did at the very end). A white (a bit off-white) foam, very persistent, but doesn't leaving much laces. Notes of spices, a delicate honey, crackers and a very subtle citric note, maybe orange. Alcohol shows up a lot. Moderate to high bitterness and very smooth mouth feel. Drinking slowly reveals more of its complexity.
