COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
It has a very big head indeed - pour it gently - and a very clean palate, beginning with a dry, lightly citric fruitiness, and finishing with a distinctive and delicate, perfumy, hop character. Very light and fluffy in texture, giving little hint of its strength.

civforprez (229) - Galesburg, Illinois, USA - JUL 16, 2004
Pours cloudy gold with little head around the edge of the glass. Lemon and wheat most readily apparent. Taste is of soft lemon, good mouthfeel with bite in the aftertaste. Nice beer.

Enniskillen (2044) - Salinas, California, USA - JUL 16, 2004
Huge, huge, huge head. Yeasty, floral, honey/sweet aroma. Light gold coloration. Apples, white wine, light hops in the flavor. Very nice balance, very smooth. A very subtle, pleasant tripel!

JonMoore (1957) - Loughborough, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - JUL 15, 2004
Bottle from Beers of Europe. Clear and golden with large, long lasting white head, which actually got bigger on standing, some lacing. Very carbonated but surprisingly smooth with nice creamy mouthfeel. Floral hoppy, slightly yeasty aroma. Citrus in the flavour, yeasty and bitter. Bitter finish/aftertaste. Very impressed, could become a favourite.

drinksalot (7) - Georgia, USA - JUL 5, 2004 does not count
Finally we get to have some of the high proof beers here in Georgia. This beer was incredible. Clean palate, light texture, stats dry and finishes with a light hop character

Hangover (1084) - Atlanta, Alabama, USA - JUL 3, 2004
Bottle pops with authority. Nice golden color with an initially huge head, which recedes to a somewhat fizzy and thin one. Floral and bisquit aroma. Very light tasting, the alchohol is hidden pretty well. Citrus, hops, banana, clove and a crisp, pleasant finish. Frankly I expected something else as the bottle says pale ale and not abbey tripel. Still, a pretty solid brew.

jimmack (1223) - Nutley, New Jersey, USA - JUN 29, 2004
Golden color with a huge, fluffy head. A scent of cloves and citrus which hang around through the first sip. Slightly sweet aftertaste.

HopsformyHips (113) - Memphis, Tennessee, USA - JUN 27, 2004
UPDATED: AUG 5, 2004 Grand white forthy head with beatiful lacing. Clear 10k gold color. A very attractive beer. The smell was a fruity sweetness with some quality yeastyness behind. The taste was not quite what I was expecting considering the look and smell. It was slightly sweet on the beginning with a mild dry finish with very modest hops. Quite yeasty. Not as robust as I would have liked...smooth, but mild. The palate was smooth, efferevescent but thinner than I would like. Still, not bad.

Spiesy (2338) - Sydney, Greater London, AUSTRALIA - JUN 27, 2004
Bottled. Enjoyed in the town square of Saint Emilion, Bordeaux, France. Pale golden colour with a medium to large soft white head served correctly in its own glass. Medium white head. Sour dough, bready aroma. Sour flavour with a sharp astringent edge.

robertsreality (2460) - Minnesota, USA - JUN 21, 2004
Gold Coloring. White Frothy Head. I was half-expecting an attack on the taste buds....but it was surprisingly smooth...yeast, hops...really not a bad beer...very smooth for higher alcohol.
