Had this in Amsterdam. I would write what I said at the time of drinking this, but my fiance EricNixon has already used my words for his rating. Itís yellow and smells like nice flowers and has that bitter taste I donít much care for.

UPDATED: JAN 8, 2006 (Bottle 25 cl) Actually this isnít that different from the dark "Pater"-version. The characteristics are pretty similar, only the malts are lighter (and the brewery is different....). Again, more dry than really bitter. But quenching. 020893

On tap at Het Elfde Gebod in Amsterdam. Clear golden color. My fiancee described it nicely as "a cloud of flowers and cinnamon...maybe pansies and Cinnamon Toast Crunch cereal." Refreshing aftertaste.

UPDATED: JUN 26, 2006 I have had this beer a number of times over the years but somehow had neglected to rate it. Sampled from a 12 oz bottle this beer poured a hazy pale yellow color with a huge white head. The aroma is sweet pineapple. the flavor is sweet apple and pineapple with a yeasty tang. There is a hint of spice on the finish.

UPDATED: APR 30, 2006 (bottle) Pale & hazy golden colour with a big foamy white head. Fruity (orange peel), herbal hoppy and yeasty aroma. Soft sweet flavour, medium bodied, high carbonated. The taste is malty and fruity (bananas) with a spicy (coriander) dry and gentle hopped finish.

Not bad, but also not great. The aroma is like that of any other tripel, but much weaker, like that of a poor hefeweizen. It LOOKS beautiful, with a massive foamy white head and pale straw color. The taste is... well, unremarkable. Like an abbey tripel, sans complexity. A very one dimensional beer, but not all that bad. Fully drinkable, but I expected more for $6 for 750ml
