Bottle. Pleasant citrus nose. Hazy lemon yelow with a thick foamy head. Upfront presence of lemon and orange zest. Some alcohol and hops on a straight light malt backbone. Spicy with some black pepper, anise, candi sugar, and apple. Very quick spicy finish. Very nice and very drinkable.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Generous white head over a nice hazy golden body. Huge pop upon opening, but no gushing at all. It smells green and spicy. Peppery nose with light mint, sweet candi sugar, beautiful belgian yeast, chamomille and fitting honey malt. High carbonation, fluffy medium body. Very herbal palate, dry, flowery. Balancing bitter finish. Light alcohol notes. Terrific tripel, brilliant balance.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Poured with small head and slightly cloudy haze. Nice fizziness on the tongue and the appropriate sweet/dry balance. Quite a nice example of the style. Well done.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Orange bread and honey aroma, sweet. Medium golden amber clear (before dregs) with pillowy off-white lacing head. Medium-heavy watery body with light-medium carbonation. Starts sweet, with bubblegum, sugar - almost saccharin - Belgian ale yeast, and some banana. No acidity. Alcohol warming toward the finish, with light dry bitterness and sweetness. After is muted sweet with decent chalky bitterness. A fairly balanced tripel, but just a bit too sweet.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
In the bottle at the 2004 Crescent Moon Vintage Beer Tasting. Creamy head. Fruity, cidery, and burnt taste. More of a wine than beer it seems. Big mouth coating feel. This aged just fine over the last decade or so.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
750 ml bottle. Golden and Clear with a nice big white head. Fruity aroma. Malty flavor. Nice alcohol burn. Big and hot alcohol burn. I feel it needs to age for a few years. Sweet malt with the burn. Its not a bad beer, but I feel it needs to age.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
750 ml bottle. golden and clear, with a big white head. Aroma is very fruity, and I pick up lotsa different ones mixed together. Flavor is malty and hot. Basically sweet malt with an alcohol burn. While this is not bad, I think it would benefit from a bit of aging.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
A hazy orange beer with a small head. The aroma is sweet spicy with coriander being most pronounced. The flavor is dry spicy - again with coriander being most dominant. The alcohol runs slightly but noticable over the tongue.
