Bottle. Pours a nice ligth copper-golden with a ncie fluffy white head. Aroma is citry and lemons with a nice doughy bready pils malt and somewhat straight forward yeast with light phenolics- slight peppery spice with earth. Light herbal and grass like flavor, good hoppiness, some slight lmeony citrus and a very slight tart finish and mostly dry. Good Tripel.

JoeMcPhee (8837) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 31, 2008
Pale golden beer. Aroma is pretty nice. Spicy and fruity with a soft herbal aroma on the back. White pepper and a crisp pils malt base. Lingering minty aroma/flavour. Soft and quite a nice tripel. Well-integrated with a nice wheaty spicy finish.

PilsnerPeter (3029) - Flushing, New York, USA - DEC 17, 2008
Cloudy deep yellow pour with a pilowy white head. Yeasty aroma with a spicy herbal hop note and a wheat malt crispness. Crisp body- lean on the malts with a touch of alcohol in the flavor. There is a dense yeasty presence with some evident phenolics and a peppery hop bitterness. Pretty solid example.

puzzl (3257) - New York, New York, USA - DEC 16, 2008
Bottled. Spicy, wheaty, yeasty aroma. Lemon zest and bread. Sweet and fruity flavor, a bit boozy. Big carbonation, big head. A good effort.

omhper (20759) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - OCT 20, 2008
Bottled. Hazy golden, fair sized head. Aroms of oraneg and licorice. Dry and hoppy with clean mouthfeel. Strongotes of almondy yeast and black currant. Strikingly bitter finish.Whatr it lacks in malt depth is recovered by the wealth of hop and yeast flavours.

harrisoni (14873) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - SEP 21, 2008
Bottle from Dranken Geers. Clear gold if you don’t pour the yeast in. Thick white head. Strong blond beer in the Duvel style. Decent hops. Bit more yeast character than Duvel. Good stuff.

Christian (11665) - Odense, DENMARK - AUG 28, 2008
Tap. Cloudy yellow with a beautiful lasting white head. Odd aroma mix of herbs and cookies. Similarly the flavour is sweet cookies and bubblegum with an unpleasant herbal note.

thewolf (11387) - Kolding, DENMARK - AUG 18, 2008
Bottle, bought @ Estate, Holstebro.
Pours muddy yellow with a small, white head. Nice lacing. Yeasty aroma, light sweet spices. Some herbal notes. Light carbonation, fine mouthfeel. Flavour is nicely dry, lots of herbs and spices. There is lots of dry complexity in here, but is it truly very drinkable.
