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.

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.

MoritzF (9369) - Ottobrunn, GERMANY - MAY 6, 2005
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

ABUSEDGOAT (2565) - California, USA - APR 15, 2005
After having their brown ale and Christmas ale I was expecting a lot from this one. Unfortunately I was let down. It tastes like other Belgian ales but it also reminds me of a wheat beer. Too simple or light tasting for my liking. Also it should be noted that this beer pours an INSANE head and is fairly cloudy. Still pretty good stuff but not worth $8 for 750ml.

Nice golden look, beautiful head and glass. Tastes a bit sharp and bitter for a blond. Not really my cup of tea but good none the less.

richlikebeer (838) - Easton, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 9, 2005
light fruity nose, a cloudy yellow body with a creamy white head. a sweet hop taste at the front, with a mild malt center, and a citrus fruit hop tail. very tangy finish, but not bitter. very nice character as it progressed through the multiple flavor aspects.

pivnizub (10094) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - APR 8, 2005
Pale, hazy yellow colour, big, firm white head; fruity and hoppy nose (citrus , fresh herbal hoppiness); light fluffy body; beginning with a dry citric fruitiness and developing to a spicy, hoppy, long lasting finish. Fine !

Tastes a little bit of acid and grape fruit. It continues to bubble on your tounge while you drink it.

Pale yellow beer with some floaties. Big fluffy white head that stays and laces. Aroma is yeasty, floral, and hoppy. Fairly good tripel with flavors of banana and citrus, yeasty and hoppy. Soft but the finish is dry and slightly bitter. Very well done.
