Ratman197 (10196) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - APR 30, 2007
Bottle [leftover 2006 GABF judging beer] poured a clear golden yellow with a large lasting creamy white head. Aromas of pineapple, citrus, light carmel and a hint of spice. Palate was light bodied crisp but slightly syrupy. Flavors of pineapple, vanilla, light carmel and spice with a smooth lingering fruity finish.

Jokes (1453) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - NOV 27, 2006
Opaque, hazy gold with a tighly packed layer of tight bubbles on top. A sweet and spicy nose of lovely citrus and yeast. Lemon, cloves, fresh dough, wheat, vanilla, corriander and light banana. The body is thick and full, due to what appears to be loads of suspended yeast. The carbonation is nice, but canít quite cut the weight. The flavor is pretty nice. Sweet, some fairly pronounced, but not overpowering, spice and a bit alcohol. The finish is long and warm, but definitely satisfying. Not my favorite from Brugge, but a treat to try and something I would drink again.

TheBeerGod (5336) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - OCT 29, 2006
GABF 2006. Muddied gold. Small white head. Nose is Belgian yeast, spices, light flowery notes and sweet malts. Taste brings forth more yeast, some dried fruits, spices, sweet malts, soft alcohol, and light floral notes. Body is light-medium with some bubbly tingling on the palate. Ends with more yeast notes, sweet malts, flowers, spice and some grains.

goldtwins (4320) - Nesconset, New York, USA - OCT 22, 2006
GABF 2006: Hazy yellow color with an off-white head. Yeasty aroma with malt and cloves. Citrus notes as well. The flavor matches the aroma pretty close. Yeasty clove notes and a fair amount of sweetness.

atpayne (615) - Zionsville, Indiana, USA - JAN 8, 2006
Pours pale orange with a nice white head. Itís very active and produces nice lace. Aromatic wheat malts, spices, and sweetness in the aroma. Definate corriander. It is quite active on the palate and produces a tangy wheat flavor that has some vineous fruityness and finishes with sweetness and a noticable alcohol. I like this beer.

hippie4beer (162) - Indianapolis, Indiana, USA - JAN 4, 2006
Draft. Pours golden with a nice white head. Aroma is sweet with notes of corriander and other spices. Flavor is wheaty with sugary notes. Finishes with a great grape flavor. The high ABV is very well hidden. Smooth on the palate with light carbonation. Great brew.

Kevin (2103) - New Mexico, USA - DEC 13, 2005
given to me by sprinkle with this quote(or something similar)" i canít do it man, i canít drink another damn drop, this is yours if you want it". so yeah i wanted it. if you know me a bit you know i have a stopping problem. you should see my notes, damn it is funny. well, here is what i thought of this beer. nice dark shimmering pour with a white head. wet penny and wheat aroma. wet wheat flavor too with some corny grain flavor. brown sugar cedar finish. alcohol does a pirouet here(someone tell me what this means? does it dace gracefully or do a comple turn and go the other way?)too much so. peach aroma with cinnamon and brown sugar cookie

Rastacouere (6137) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 5, 2005
UPDATED: APR 22, 2009 Lasting white ring covers a clear golden body. Yeast heavy aroma shows strong estery character, bringing obvious banana and pear notes. Fresh honeyed cereals proliferate on the palate while hay-like flavours never manage to dry the beer out. Instead, a weighty herbal character grows with every sip, in a intoxicating way combined with the high ethanol component. A very heady triple, perhaps a bit too hot for its own good. /////////// Now from the 750 mL bottle. Very very yeasty, but well-hopped, flowery and lemony tripel with strong banana esters and a gentle sourdough tartness. Authentic Belgian texture. Score would drop to 3.0
