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.

Tasted in Toronto, home of the 2004 Grey Cup Champions, the Toronto Argonauts. Argooooooos!!!!!! Appearance is deep golden yellow colour, fairly rich looking for what I expected. Pours an initial big white head, but dissapates to a nice consistent thin white head. Aroma is of citric lemon, possibly orange with a hint of alcohol presence. Not at all disturbing. Flavour is floral and estery. Nice initial fruit hints with a slighty bitter finish that nicely represents the style. Pretty good stuff.

As a beer, this one is great. As an abbey tripel, it is even better. Pours slightly turbid pale gold with a behemoth head that lingers longer than a Jehovah’s witness. Great aroma of malt, hopcit, candi sugar, chardonnay, champagne, and fruit....definite 9 for aroma. Tastes bold, full-bodied, with a nice "fizziness" and a multitude of flavor layers, including the aforementioned hopcit, light fruit, candi sugar, and malt. I really like this beer. I just wish it wasn;t so expensive.

OKBeer (1171) - Halifax, Nova Scotia, CANADA - NOV 15, 2004
330 ml bottle, best before 14/01/06. Lightly hazy golden yellow colour with a huge, mostly lasting, frothy, pillowy, and rocky white head. Citrus, yeasty, lightly grassy, and lightly spicy aroma. Dry subtle citrus, spice, and yeasty flavours with a light alcohol finish. Light to medium bodied, creamy but refreshing mouthfeel.

sloth (2625) - Ceciltucky, Co., Maryland, USA - NOV 14, 2004
Medium sized white head, good retention and lacing. Hazy, straw color. Lots of floaties. Yeasty, flowery nose. Light bodied, spritzy. Light malt notes, citrus, lemony notes, fruity. Finish is dry refreshing.

Doppelganger (1388) - Dry County, Arkansas, USA - NOV 1, 2004
Pours pale straw color with tons of creamy egg-shell white head of fine bubbles that linger nicely. Nice spring-fresh aroma. A pleasant combination of flowery hops and estery fruitness. Estery banana and clove in the tastes too. Bit of soapiness in the finish. (I mean that in good way.) Body is on the thin side, but smooth and pleasant.

Eyedrinkale (3213) - Astoria, New York, USA - OCT 30, 2004
33 cl bottle. Cloudy gold color with nice head when poured into a Corsendonk glass. Aroma is fruity and peppery spicy. Taste is lightly hopped but more of the same spices that are in the aroma. Mouthfeel is pretty lively and carbonated. Just a tad sour with taste of yeatiness.

MiP (14442) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - OCT 26, 2004
Bottle. Nice malty, full flavour, but way too weak flavour for the ABV.

A classic, but not for the impatient! Pours slowly with a rich, billowy head (at least two fingers!) The ale itself is clear, bubbly, champagne gold. Looks perfect! The taste is powerful and upfront. A fruity nose with a strong presence of apple. The initial taste is sweet, dry and fruity. Again, similar to a dry champagne. Unlike champagne, this is bubby but not effervescent. It is dry and ashy, but not chalky. Strong citrus flavors as it opens up. A sustained earthy finish. An all-around wonderful drinking experience!

willblake (2654) - Bel Air, Maryland, USA - OCT 17, 2004
10.17.04 12oz bottle. Pale golden pour with mountainous, rocky head. Aromas of crisp, green pear, vinous, lemongrass. Reminds of an extreme pinot grigio. Palate is light but soft as it dances around spreading delightful flavors of pear, fresh pineapple, green grape. Honey undertones. Light, forgiving, but still complex. This could be an everyday tripel.

Clear golden brew.massive white head.The nose off this is a treat for the senses.Floral and sweet almost winelike.it is if i am at a florist.Orchids??Now it is hops.Or is it spice:coriander.A little drier then I expected which is nice as was thinking this would be sweeter.The hops and spice kinda take over here.Nice brew.Not much for a lingering taste tho’.
