Bottle. Pours a cloudy orange gold color with a decent sized off white head. Aroma of butterscotch and bread with similar flavors. Sort of a sour bitter finish. Medium bodied. A bite to the tongue initially but finishes smoothly enough. Not bad.

Thanks to Phil for this one! Cloudy orange pour, with a huge white head. Candied oranges and lemons with cardamom on the nose. This is a light, refreshing dessert brew. Very effervescent, with hops and a bit of white pepper and baking spices joining the palate. Finishes dry. Very clean, very nice.

Deep caramel malts. Deep burnt red hue with a smell of cinnamon. Subtly sweet with a bit of hops. Distinctly Belgian, delicious, good body and a slyly tingly aftertaste.

Flska. Gusher big time! Cloudy golden colour with a big lively bubbly white head. Aroma is sweet like with hay and malt along with some fruit, soap and bit spice. Ok mouthfeel. Sweet malty bit spiced like flavour, acid like (not pleasant), yeasty,bit fruit. Off....

Bottle from Cavie. Very light pour with a small white head. Aroma is spicy, banana, and a little alcohol. Taste is almost minty, banana, spice, grain, and honey.

Cavie (3844) - Fort Worth, Texas, USA - JUL 26, 2011
Bottle courtesy drowland. Pours a light hazy golden color. Fizzy white head. Aroma is Belgian fruit, yeast and bready notes. Flavor is lightly sweet, big bready notes, easy grain that leaves a tingle over the palate. Decent finish, not bad.

jsmerig (1291) - Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 29, 2011
Pours a cloudy golden yellow with highly active carbonation and excessive head. Aroma of tart grapes. Taste is sweet with a sharp bite that comes from the background to the foreground quickly to overtake the taste. The finish is a bittery cider with lingering sourness.

I had been looking forward for a chance to try this new (to me) Tripel for a couple weeks before I got a chance to get to it in my cellar so I was somewhat alarmed when it exploded unceremoniously over my countertop when I popped the cap. The beer remaining was cloudy orange golden in color and capped by a long lasting head of largish bubbles. The nose is quite spicy and bready. I am not really pulling cloves or anything specifically, just a general spicy warmth and a bit of banana-like juiciness. It is kind of nice but there is a bit of a metallic undertone that comes out more once tasted. The palate is kind of sticky and sluggish, oily and lacking the creamy carbonation that makes the best big Belgians great. Gushing aside, this is a pretty disappointing Belgian in general.

In the glass it has a very cloudy pale yellow color. The foam erupted from the bottle and formed a huge head. Aroma has some citrus and floral to it. Taste is very smooth with a little orange flavor and some grass. Kind of earthy. Finish is very smooth. Would definitely recommend it.
