Hazy amber with a bubbly, frothy head. Weissbier comes to mind as I try to sence the aroma(which is slight spicy) and flavor of this one - but what is it more specificly? I don't know...there's a clear yeast presence along with a fruity sweetness and sourness...

A nice beer overall. Amber color, decent spice aroma and full-bodied flavor. Can't say I'd prefer this even over some other Belgians or some of the good American copies, but certainly worth trying once, I suppose.

ante (3374) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - AUG 11, 2003
Dark golden with some haze. Big bubbly white head. sweet and sour aroma with hints of caramel, yeast and citrus. taste is slightly tart, malty and fruity. Flowery finish.

Aubrey (3442) - Bellingham, Washington, USA - AUG 9, 2003
Lofty -- but quickly fading -- off-white head above a nice, hazy gold hue. Soft malts (sweet caramel) with an active carbonation. Sour, slightly tart and a little bitter. Sticky and cloying in the finish (one of its qualities I really didn't like). Overall, not bad, but this one didn't do much for me.

Smacky (71) - San Clemente, California, USA - AUG 5, 2003
Orange and hazy color with a great, frothy, tight head. Bright esters and a little classic Belgian sourness in the nose, followed by bread and citrus undertones. Nice malt and toasted bread following the initial spicy, citrusy taste. A little tart on the mouth, but not unpleasant.

BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - JUL 27, 2003
Aroma is alcohol and belgian yeast esters. Hazy auburn color with explosive head and excellent lacing, appearance for a tripel doesn't get much better than this. Flavor is the downfall hear. Slightly salty and rotten. Astringant and even cloying on the palate. A drinkable belgian but not even close to good.

TheBeerGod (5284) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - JUL 25, 2003
Had this at Bon Vivant Beer Lover's Club on 7-25-03. Hazy blond with a fluffy dry white head. The nose has a lightly sweetened, yeasty, and spicy character. The taste is wonderful with more spice and yeast coming through and possibly citrus fruit rind. Finishes a little dry but with some of the spice and a little bitterness remaining. Great beer!

Kathy (241) - Washington DC, USA - JUL 18, 2003
Cloudy gold with a small, quickly dissipating head. The cork popped HARD to the ceiling, though, so there's definitely some carbonation. Sweet, mildly spicy, mildly alcohol aroma with some slightly sour tones. Kind of like a very gently spiced orange. Flavor is not very rich. It's a little like McDonald's orange soda with a 1:2 ratio with club soda. Not much to it. Gets richer as it warms, but still not great. It's more like tonic water with a twist of orange zest.

Suttree (5186) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - JUL 13, 2003
Cloudy Brown, with a sturdy head. Faint Maple and hops aroma. I t actually smells good, and I'd rate "aroma" higher if the odor was a bit stronger. Big Maple and banana flavor, and a velvety smooth texture. Finishes with a crisp peppery finish. A very filling and satisfying beer.

FastEddie (230) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - JUL 10, 2003
A really good wheat ale, but with the higher alcohol content one might come to expect from a Belgian. A little more tingle than most wheat ales, more carbonation. Lovely golden color, less murky than most wheat ales and possibly with less body but the tingle makes up for it somewhat. A truly delightful brew
