Best by date October 2009, Sampled March 2007
Pours with an easily three-finger thick, pale, off-white colored head. The beer is a brilliantly clear, bright, straw, gold color. The aroma is an interesting mix of bergamot and earthy spices initially, but there is lots of malt character here too in the form of crushed soda cracker and some biscuit-like aromatics. There is some tart, lemon-like character here too and there is also a touch of herbal hop character here (I think, it could be fermentation character).

The taste is fairly sweet, though quite in line with a Tripel and there is a soft creaminess to the mouth feel here. A sharp, herbaceous bite is here; it seems to be a mix of hop bitterness, and fermentation character (a touch of higher alcohols as well as spicy esters and some phenols). Notes of clove, lemon-zest, orange cream, and some definite earthy coriander character are all noticeable. The coriander character here is nice; it seems to be smoother and better suited than the variety of coriander that often gets used in American brewed beers. I was hoping to get a touch of liquorice flavor here, but I really don't detect it; I might guess at it contributing, but I can't be sure that it really does.

This is a nice Tripel; it has a nice mix of spicy character along with the sweet malt notes. Most importantly the spices used don't overwhelm the beer and in fact are on the subtle side; this beer is definitely spicy, but if I did not know they were there you might have been able to convince me that they were derived from fermentation character.

$8.79 for a 750 ml bottle at Holiday Wine Cellar in Escondido, CA in March 2006. Label sez "Brewed with Coriander, Licorice, and Orangeskin".

Pours a slightly hazy golden color with a nice steady stream of carbonation supporting the white head in my Rochefort chalice.

Aroma is triple-like, but not the sweet aromatic citrus orange-tangerine that I am used to and like- this one is hit harder by the spiciness.

Flavor is slightly sweet, drier than many tripels, and without the traditional (?) black pepper that I associate with the style. Definitely other spices- the coriander and licorice are there- anise seed & breadiness like the cookies my German grandmother made when I was a kid.... It's a good tasting beer, but it just does not grab me.

A nice change of pace- decent enough. Maybe I'll like it better another time.

the cork pops with authoritah! I knew this would be fizzy, like don king's hair (on a good day), massive head that resembles soda bubbles crowns my saturday night guest, carbonation is very active (and I am not a rocket scientist, honest), almost pale macro lager looking in tone, I have seen better but this certainly is not asscake.

dry and musty like clay left in the sun, hints of pepper and coriander, a little biscuit with a sugar swirl, your usual, nothing is overpowering and everything seems in order, just not that exciting

taste etc...
the sweetness doesn't become apparent for a little tick there, and then wow, that bracing over sweet flavor comes in, many tripels do this so I can not say it is out of style, it just aint my style baby, the carbonation keeps this real light in the mouth, almost creamy, no detection of the alcohol except the slightest burn in the throat. slight acidity (citric) in the aftertaste with a dollop of pepper tone.

not for me. the sweetness came on so strong (sugar) I almost gagged, it was a bit bracing. Not a terrible beer but there are far better to be had in my not so humble opinion.

Pours out a light hazy golden color with a nice frothy white head.

Smell. Has a light tartness (lemons) accompanied by a nice creamy sweetness. pretty nice.

Taste. Initially i get some corriander flavors, but under that is a taste that is a touch drier than others in the style. Has a nice spiced flavor. Slight yeast flavor. Aftertaste is nice and dry with just a touch of fruit flavors.

Mouthfeel. Body is medium with lots of carbonation. It does fill my mouth nicely.

Overall, a nice one to try, but it doesnt have anything that sticks out. A solid beer, but not excellent

Shared a 750 mil. bottle with Clvand0 and Ding at Pazzos. The beer is distictly an artisanal Belgian. Lots of fruity aromas (pineapple, grapefruit, bruised oranges and apples). Medium tartness and spiciness from the yeast and fermentation. Perhaps more agressively hopped than usually expected from the Belgians. Looks murky yellow / orange with very nice retention, lacing, and carbonation. Tastes as fruity, spicy, and hoppy as exhibited in the aroma. Though the beer boasts of having licorice added, I don't really detect it in the flavor. However, there is a bold sweetness (pineapple) that boarders on saltiness. Medium textured and prickly (co2). Finishes with a crisp dryness and a lingering hop flavor. A slight soapy flavor late is the only real flaw.

The beer was crystal clear with a strong effervescence and a white, frothy and moussy head which lasted well to lace the glass.

The aroma was lightly spicy with a low DMS character and a light bit of caramel.

The flavor contained lightly corny character with an earthy and lightly spicy hop presence. Also in the flavor was a lightly tart flavor and a bit of pepper.

The finish was dry wtih a peppery spice presnce lasting long into the aftertaste. The body was medium light with a lightly creamy mouthfeel. The aroma was much better than the flavor. Not a beer to seek out but while in Belgium, what the heck.

Bottle seved in proper glassware at Paters Vaetje in Antwerpen (9/11/06).

This beer has a misty blond colour. At first it gave a big foamy head. When the head disappears, a thin fragmented layer remains.
The smell is surprisingly divers. Overpowering is the full-bodied hop scent. Very sweet smell, citrus fruit, some alcohol, banana, slight alcohol, tropical fruit,…
Taste is very different: voluptuous (milky), but dry. Citrus fruits, yeast (I think), bit of oxidation. A lot of carbonation.
Aftertaste: hops, oxidation, bit malty.

A rather mediocre beer.

Triple Moine.

A = Poured a pale straw colour with a white foam head that quick dissapates.

S = Smells of yeast. So it smells a bit sour.

T = Tastes of herbs such as clove. Slightly spicy with a dry finish.

M = Moderately carbonated. Pleasant to the mouth.

D = Average. Can think of better beers to drink. Not one I will actively seek out again. But not unpleasant to drink.

A yeasty and hoppy brew with significant carbonation. Bit of sour yeast smell wih other herbs. Herbal. Straw pale yellow with a white foamy head. Drinkable, maybe some melon and pineapple, last night's fruit salad. but average all together. Modiale 2005

The Deugniet version in a 25cl bottle. Best by 31/02/06

I always feel a little cheated to get one of these tiny bottles. The disappear so fast!

Pours a beautiful clear light gold with a thick cap of white foam that laced my glass nicely. Ample carbonation bubbles drift lazily to the top of the beer.

Smell is light and perfumey. A little sweet and flowery.

Taste is a lighter sweet flavor with some light spicing.

Mouthfeel is nicely carbonated without being biting.

A drinkable beer in the bottle, but MUCH better fresh on tap.

Sampled this one out of a 75 cl botle best before 21-03-06/ Pours in overwelming with lots of foam that stay and has an golden color. Smell is lots of koreander and fruit so litle else to detect. Fresh but hard to smell the malts and other fine things in a smell as hop or so. Taste is more malty but still very koreander like. Dry but not much hops. Not a bad beer but could have some extra to enjoy it more.

I bought a 750ml bottle of this at the Bier Tempel in Brussels (5.60 Euros) and quaffed it late one night in my room while in London...
Moine is a medium golden colored bier, with a steady stream of bubbles rising upwards. Fairly clear, it has a foamy, rocky white head, though it fades rapidly to a thin layer leaving better than average lace. Aroma has bready malt and light sweetness, plus mango notes and hints of spice. It has medium body and passes well over the tongue despite the rather abundant carbonation. A taste (or 6...) reveals a light crackery malt backbone providing subtle sweetness. Further investigation (and inbibing) discovers passion fruit-like notes and a touch of spice (coriander, maybe?). Finish is quick and drying. A decent Tripel...could be more complex, but still good.

Small stubby bottle that alot of the belgians come in. The color was a shiny yellow. A bottle swirl clouded things up a bit. Dense small bubbled head. Foamy. Smells of grapefruit, citrus smells, and earthy belgian yeast. Maybe some soap, or is that my glass ?
Taste was tart citrus, grapefruit, fresh hop bitterness. Sweet underlying malty goodness with the ctirus shock. Maybe some honey and fresh mown hay. A pretty good, tangy, citrus strong ale. Light to medium bodied, highly charged, but with a enough snap to be refreshing.

As the beer sets in the glass, a crystal clear golden yellow color, with a prodigious head, frothy in texture and the lace a thick covering sheet. Mostly malt nose, crisp and clean with the start somewhat sweet and malt laden, top is middling in its feel to the palate. Finish is prickly in its acidity, the hops pertinent in their bite, dry long lasting aftertaste, drinkable but not great.
