3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: MAY 13, 2009 The top fermentation seems to give this beer a bit of oft centeredness and there is some grassiness in place but it is enjoyable. I sense a raison gum drop with spices with a golden crisp overtone to it. This is one you can sip and enjoy. It doesn’t hit the high notes and isn’t as aggressive as its Chimay brothers and sisters hit but it interests me nonetheless. Bottle at the Banshee @ Scranton, PA.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Had this on tap at Taco Mac. Little to no head and no lacing. Appearance was very cloudy. Might be because it was served waaaaay too cold. Very strong aroma of yeast and fruit. Couldn’t really smell pure hops, but plenty of fruit. Nice long finish, but could taste more of the alcohol than I would’ve liked. Not a great representative of the tripel style, still good.

A delightful beer... hauled home from Belgium by my girlfirend but it’s available here in Ireland too. The aroma is simply amazing. The pungent global brands should be ashamed of themselves. The head is picture perfect and the taste was delightful.

Draught. Pours cloudy orange with a nice off-white head. Full floral and yeasty aroma, with some banana. Very bold flavor; moderately sweet, and dominated by yeast, banana, and some alcohol tinge. Quite good.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle, 33cl. This is a great beer! Hazy orange colour with a beautiful beige head, mostly lasting, lacing the glass during consumption. Excellent aroma of fruits and flowers. Very lively and complex. Flavour is also great with the alcohol always present, but not unpleasant at all. Dry finish. This is surely one of my favourite beers!

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: APR 30, 2007 Bottle. Pours a beautifully hazy golden/amber color. Moderately sized head. You are instantly greated by the hops, but they do not overpower you. Some fruity sweetness, but just a touch. Good bit of yeast in both aroma and flavor. Alcohol is totally hidden. Overall, just a really good beer. I believe I like this better than the Bleu.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Maybe I had like the best bottle of this batch, but this beer was fantastic. Good sticky head, a true golden body, a light complex body, hint of coriander, and a citrus finish.
This beer is the total package, a true feel good beer.
