3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
330 ml. Enormous creamy head lasts forever atop this cloudy orange-golden beer. Aroma is creamy honey, lemon, bread dough, and slight spicy grass. Initial flavor is peaches, cream, lemon, and honey. These flavors are all dried well by some spicy yeast, peppery wood notes, light white wine alcohol and very light earth-spice tastes that come to the fore later in the glass. Light-medium body is dry and mostly smooth.

bottled. Very typical hazy golden tripel. Bubbly tongue covered in spicy sour fruit. A little simple. I had it w/ a cigar (KubaKuba) so this rating could be full of shit...

Bottle. Nice beer. one of the better non-trappist abbeys. Nice spicy, fruity flavor. Smells great. If it were a little less expensive wouldn’t mind having all the time. Highly recommended.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Foam Rangers tasting. Orange pour with frothy head. Nose is fresh citrus (oranges, grapefruit, lemons) with funky spice. Nose is the same with some sweeter fruits to balance it a bit.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Nov. 2007 - Pour was golden orange with a head that was just plain out of control. Aroma of funky yeast and horseblanket. The flavor was citrus and pear with a horsey funk. This is the 3rd in my mixed Belgian sixpack and each one had an out of control head, sour lambic-like flavoring and an overcarbonated mouthfeel. I’m beginning to feel I didn’t get such a bargain after all.

Orange colour, very very much foamy ever lasting head, full fruits like grapefruit, orange and a little banana, lots of spices and raisin, some alcohol aftertaste.
Very nice one!
