33Cl bottle, 8% a/v Pours a hazy gold with a generous white head. The nose of this beer is very fruity, and yeasty with some spice. The taste is almost like a hefeweizen, spicy, bananas, but with a decent hop kick before a mellow palate. A bit too carbonated, but it doesnt take away much.

Bobsy (194) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 3, 2007
UPDATED: NOV 5, 2007 Bottle conditioned and courtesy of the LCBO. Murky golden pour with a nice white head. Almost looks like a wheat beer. Smells of blackcurrant. Nice. Fruity flavour, with a nice dose of spice. Nice level of carbonation tingles the palate. I could come back to this one again and again.

JesseM (1155) - Margaritaville, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 3, 2007
Pours the typical tripel colour, hazy and pale gold, with the huge white head. Faint aromas of yeast, fruits, not much else. The taste is malty, fruit-like, some dough, though not enough to really please me, then comes a big spice kick, followed by alcohol. The mouth-feel is heavily carbonated, which makes it pretty rough and not incredibly drinkable. Not totally horrible, but I’m not a huge fan of tripels.

750 ml bottle from La Bodega. Hazy orange with a fluffy white head. Aroma of fruit, caramel, and Belgian yeast. Sweet fuity and earhty spice taste with a lightly hopped finish.

Gpnterojd (179) - Waterloo, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 26, 2007
Pours light gold with a huge head. Slightly cloudy. Aroma of yeast, cloves, and apple. The flavour brings lots of clove and other spices, a little yeast and some citrus / orange. The taste is light, and there is no evidence of 8%. Kinda like a session tripel.

On tap, from old notes. Hazy golden amber with dense stark white foam, slightly sweet flavor with notes of citrus and spice, sublte tartness in the finish.

gwpom (297) - Akron, New York, USA - OCT 9, 2007
11.2 oz bottle in the variety pack. Like the other ales, I couldn’t tell a lot of difference between them. This was a bit lighter, a bit more citrusy, and very carbonated, but still the flavor did not stand out. Ok for a Belgian but I could have mistaken it for a summer ale in a taste test.

Wat can I say, another basic belgian tripel. Not bad, but theres definately much better out there.

joverton85 (80) - Burnsville, Minnesota, USA - OCT 1, 2007
massive head on a golden hazy body. very carbonated. fruity taste more than im used to for a tripel. so carbonated it was too hard to get a good pour. hides the 8 percent well.

On tap at the Sharp Edge Bistro. Has a rather sweet leathery aroma. Look is ubiquitous pale yellow american lager but the head is a bit frothy. Barely any carbonation on the palate. Taste impact is initially well mannered but that morph’s into a more alky bite as it swishes inside your mouth. However, you would never know this was 8%, pretty mild for a high alky beer. These Belgian’s really put the Americans to shame when it comes to refined high class tasting beers. During the session the alky bite does begin to show thru, but it is never in your face like those arrogant americans.
