4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Earthy and floral hop aromas, and notes of golden raisins and angel food cake. Hazy, dark orange, thick, creamy, white head with great retention. Taste is lightly sweet, with spicy and herbal tones, subtle flavors of caramel and lemon seltzer water, and fragrant, brilliant, floral aromas that drift up into the sinus cavity. Full bodied, with fresh, full carbonation, and a refreshingly clean finish. An excellent and very earthy triple.

Bottle from the LCBO. Murky medium amber with a huge white fluffy head that fades slowly and leaves lots of lace. Nose is yeast, light toffee and grains, medium citrus and banana and some light pepper and coriander. Light bread and toffee start with a more pronounced bitter citrus middle with some grape tartness and light spice throughout.Medium slick body with active carbonation and a dry finish. Well balanced.

Colore ambrato, con tendenze all’arancione lucente. Schiuma bianca alta tre dita, fine e persistente. L’odore è splendido, di iva e pesche, di frutta insomma come vuole lo stile. Il corpo scarno rende la birra troppo liquorosa ma comunque buona e godibile, secca dopo la dolcezza iniziale.

Single small bottle from Julio’s. Poured into a snifter. A deep cloudy honey color with a frothy off-white head that settles to a thick lace. Aroma of spice, bread and fruit. Body is on the heavy side with more bitterness than fruit. Lingering dry bitterness on the back side. Could this be the original "Belgian IPA"? Enjoyable overall.

Transfer from BA review on 7-27-13-
Poured from bottle into a chalice glass
Appearance – The beer pours a cloudy yellow-orange amber color with a one finger white head of a more fizzy nature. The head has a lighter level of retention, fading over about a one minute time frame, to leave a light level of lace on the sides of the glass.
Smell – The aroma is of a bready and biscuit nature mixed with a moderately strong yeasty and orange citrus smell. The yeast with it bring some nice spice aromas of coriander and clove mixing with some banana smells as well.
Taste – The taste begins with a lighter bready flavor mixed with a moderate amount of orange citrus flavor. As the taste moves on the orange dries out some with lots of yeast and spice of clove and coriander coming to the tongue. As the orange gets lighter it is replaced by a light banana taste as well as some grassy and herbal hop flavors. Overall the taste gets rather dry at the end and when combining with a bit of an alcohol flavor it leaves a dry and yeasty bread taste to linger on the tongue.
Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is on the medium to slightly thinner side for a brew of 8 % abv with a carbonation level that is on the higher side with tons of prickly carbonation bubbles. The feel is very nice for the style with the slightly thinner body making it very drinkable and light in composure and with the prickly carbonation level accentuating the spice and hop taste all in all making for a more exciting drier champagne like feel which match the tastes well.
Overall – A classic triple for a reason. It is dry and yet exciting brew with a drier, moderately yeasty, lightly hopped and nicely spiced flavor.
