4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Active on opening, forms a fair white head. Hazy yellow brew is almost luminescent as light diffuses through it. Sweet aroma is round and fruity. Sweet flavor but not saccharin. It settles and fills the whole mouth, bitter only slighty at the end, all balanced by a hint of bready yeastiness. Super duper stuff.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle conditioned. Straw gold, thin white head and good condition. Some unavoidable yeast floaters and a layer of very pale yeast at the bottle bottom. Grainy duvel like perfumed nose with hints of alcohol yeast and coconut. Bread and grain flavours in the mouth with some yeastiness and a suggestion of malted milk. Finish was soft and mouthfillingly sweet. Prefered it to Westmalle tripel.

Foamy blond beer with a steeply alcoholic aroma and flavour. A very vineous brew, difficult to drink at times.

Hazy yellow w/ thick white head & lots of suspended particles. Nose is yeasty, fruity (peaches, citrus), & spicy. Full-bodied. Sweet & bread-like at first, but light & yeasty in the middle. Finish is warm & dry w/ a nice alcohol tingle.

Yeasty aroma, spicy, typical triple like. Cloudy yellow coloured with a nice remaining head. Typical triple taste too, but it sure distinguishes itself from brews like it. Taste is quite spicy, a bit bitter, fruits are present. Pleasant full palate.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
average head which died very very fast. hazy, with some small bitties floating around. lighish yellow amber. hop aromas with floral and perfume. maybe some fruit, like pears. moderately yeasty, too, like a belgian. starts off kind of bitter, but turns sweet in finish, which is pretty short. texture was kind of dry. overall, an average belgian. still very good for beer, but not a standout in its class.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
What a completely two faced belgian. The pour had this one at a very light golden yellow with medium carbonation and i mean the most beautiful suspended yeast particles..this got me excited as you can see. The aroma had some of the funkiest stuff ive smelled before...yeast...grains..chlorine... yeah, i did just say chlorine, honey, and a lambic like sourness. The taste however killed whatever suspense got built up during the pre-tasting. Aside from a yeast presence, i could taste nothing other than a mild alcoholic ending. Very little of anything was present here aside from yeastiness. Very dry and melancholy finish...very uninteresting. The carbonation died down considerably but the aroma was still just as entrancing as the first time i smelled it 20 minutes later. Ah, the tale of the two faced belgian....
