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 can’t 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.

opaque orange, frothy beige head, heavy lace, light fruity spicy aroma with hints of citrus, creamy body, balanced malt flavor with a sweet fruityness that’s well balanced with the spicy citrus character, the sweetness picks up a candy quality as it warms and becomes a spiced candy

BBB63 (6543) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - JUL 27, 2008
Indiana Microbrewers Festival: Golden hue with a small frothy head. The aroma is a bit funky and acidic, some pepper, cardamom, ginger, apricot, grassy esters along with bready malts and a hint of Belgian sugar. The taste is twangy and fruity with an aggressive boozy nature. The finish is yeasty and spicy. Mouth feel is sharp and highly warming (then again I just noticed that is 11% ABV so I guess that makes sense now). Sort of weird almost hybrid beer but it does grow on you after awhile.

One of the last pours from the keg at Brugge Brasserie. Pour is golden yellow and mostly clear but with depth and richness of color. Smells of honey comb and lemon rind. Definitely pear and vanilla. A lot of spice. Banana. Esters a plenty. Wish this was a fresh keg. But a sample is a sample and I’m not complaining. Pretty good. Has lost a little life. I’m guessing though from being the arse end of a batch. Not bad at all regardless.

Sample from beerfest. Poured a hazy yellow color with a smaller white head. Aroma was banana, spices, lemon and malts. Flavor was a lot of the same. Some bready maltiness to it. Tart finish. Something just a little off with this beer.

Draft - Perfumy and flowery aromatics with some stone fruit. Clear gold with a decent white head. Sweet stone fruit, flowery with a bit of perfume and pear in the finish.

MoDog (927) - Griffith, Indiana, USA - JUL 31, 2008
On tap at Three Floyds and served in a tulip. This beer poured a golden orange with a thin head of white foam that slightly lasted. Not much lace. The aroma of the beer was made up of orange peel, apricots, and strong alcohol. The flavor was strong and powerful with a heavy dose of astingent orange peels, candied apricots, bread dough, and a healthy shot of tongue warming alcohol. Interesting, but a bit intense. The mouthfeel was full-bodied and tongue coating with minimal carbonation. A pretty nice brew, but it became a bit hard to finish towards the end of the glass. Definately not your run of the mill tripel.

Cornfield (5570) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - SEP 9, 2008
Bottle: (Am I the first bottle rater?) It poured a hazy light golden amber with a short-lived, modest creamy head. No lace. The aroma has warm spices, citrus and pome fruits, warm bread, alcohol, and a touch of butterscotch. Nicely rounded, creamy mouthfeel heated with white peppers. The flavor’s a touch of a letdown, being reduced to sweet pale malt, alcohol, and a lightened touch of spices. Not bad, but nothing special.

22 oz bottle Picked up at Keg Liquors in Clarksville, IN this is the second time that I have tried this. On a fresh palate it was completely different than after thirty other samples. I’d love to try it one more time if I can find it on tap; perhaps my bottle just wasn’t that great. Aroma / Appearance - A foamy huge two finger head subsided down into a golden fluid body. Honey, graham crackers, cotton candy, and a bit of ham make it different than most tripels. Flavor / Palate - Chewy honey and cough syrup drop this to average at best. A warm vinous finish improves the tasting. Bready and dense at times it alternates between solid and bland. In the end I wouldn’t mind giving it a third chance if I ever make it to Indianapolis.
