3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a hazed yellow color with a white creamy head and light carbonation. The lace is sticky and clingy. The aroma is fruity, tart, bubblegum and a light aroma hop. Taste has a sweet start and a tart finish with a lingering dry peppery aftertaste. The mouthfeel is medium bodied and smooth with no real representation of CO2.
IMHO: A very one-dimensional beer. The tart overwhelms the other more subtle features. I do not think that it is a good representation of a triple, but it is different. Has a nice warming effect as it goes down.

UPDATED: MAY 11, 2009 Malty, light fruity aroma. Hazy yellow to orange color. Flavor is malty, pleasant sweetness, some candies followed by light herbal hops. Only hints of fruit. Light bitter fonish. Harmonic, not great but nice.

33cl. Pours a hazy yellow with a lasting head. I had to leave more behind in the bottle than normal to avoid some serious sea monkey action. The aroma doesn’t do the taste justice. It smells mostly yeasty, but the flavor is a much nicer balance of sweet malt and the spice of Belgian yeast. Very delicious.

decenthazy yellow body with a sizable head staying on top. The flavor is mostly just a sweet malt flavor. The alcohol is noticable in it, which makes up most of the bite to it.

Thin layer of foam on top of a cloudy amber brew that has lotsa’ stuff floating in it.Hoppy,fruity spicy aromas blended together make this beer a joy just to smell.The taste is just as complex as the aroma with the fruits and spices caressing my tastebuds.This is a great after-exercise beer as it is so refreshing.

Pours a rich golden honey colour with a thin everlasting head and plenty of floaties jostling about. Aromas of honey, pepper, corriander, and fresh apples to name a few. The taste is nice and pure belgian strong ale with hints of banana, pepper, apples and a nice hoppiness combined with a lingering finish. Man I love belgian strong ales.
