oc4111 (119) - USA - MAY 3, 2013
Pours a cloudy golden color with a bit if a foamy head after an aggresr pour. The aroma has that sweet candied fruit and Belgian yeast at the forefront with a slight hint of piney hops in the background. Tast has both styles co-mingling with the Belgian tripel at the front and finishing with the slightly piney astringent finish.

GIJOE (1051) - North Berwick, Maine, USA - APR 12, 2016
Pours an orangey amber with a foamy white head that stays long. Nose is a bit fruity. Notes of citrus and candy. Taste is quite to the bitter side. Medium body. Lively carbonation. Very pleasing, interesting brew.

malrubius (2427) - Springfield, Vermont, USA - MAR 21, 2016
Bottle from Brewtopia. Opaque golden orange with white head and lotsa lace. Tangerine orange pineapple mango floral aroma. Sweet tangerine mango with some breadiness and orange citrus finish with some spicy bitterness. Medium full creamy wheaty (?) body. Nice soft carbo. Wicked fucking delicious. Might even be better without the orange peel. Not sure thatís necessary.

Bomber shared by Chalumeaux. Thanks, TJ! Pours golden brown with a big off white head. Aroma is caramel, malt, citrus. Flavor is caramel, banana, clove. Grapefruit and orange citrus in the finish. I usually donít care for hoppy Belgians, but this is decent.

ByTheirLimpin (231) - New York, USA - JAN 31, 2016
Big bottle to little snifter. Cloudy honey in the glass. Stiff bubbly head. Orange and coriander on the nose. Nice orange citrus carried through to a malty dry finish. Bright and boozy enough to warm my cockles.

DavoleBomb (1867) - Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 30, 2016
Poured into a snifter. 3.25 A: Murky copper color. Two fingers of off-white creamy/frothy head. Retention is good and a short ring of lacing is left. 3.0 S: Quite sugary. Cake frosting, peach, lemon. Lots of citrusy and grassy hoppiness. Yeasty breadiness, banana chips, and something quite distinct that my mind canít identify right now - something like a persimmon. Also a touch of vegetal aroma. 3.0 T: The taste has no real focus. Itís moderately bitter and the predominant flavor is yeastiness. Thereís peach, lemon, and banana fruitiness, but thereís also a lack of tripel spiciness. Less sugary than nose, but still there. Bready and biscuity. 3.0 M: Medium body. Good moderate carbonation. Chewy, but lacking spritziness or creaminess, which is what I like in the style. 2.75 D: Eh, itís okay, but it doesnít work well as either an IPA or a tripel. ★ 880 characters DavoleBomb, Sep 18, 2015
