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.

Bottle. Pours a hazy blond color with a quickly dissipating white head. Nose is estery, spicy and laced with floral hops. Taste is light malts, light fruits, fresh and acidic, medium-bodied, slightly sweet with a light bitterness, lot of carbonation, followed up with a dry perfumy finish. I like this one.

Good balnced Blonde leaning beer.Flowers Lavender and Almond blossom? dominate the nose with some grassy hop notes. Honeyed malt woth atouch of citrus spice well balanced beer of little complexity.

UPDATED: DEC 19, 2005 Tasted 07/03/2005. 330ml bottle from Regional Wines and Spirits, Wellington. Pours a light bright gold with a thick white billowing head. As the head dies a very strong clingy lacing is revealed. The nose is a soft bouquet of old style boiled sweets and very light citrus notes. Flavour is candy sweet up front, but balanced exceptionally well with a touch of spice and some bitter grassiness from the hops. Palate is left remarkably clean for such a strong ale. Very good - a little more subtle than some belgians.

Had this one head to head with Cdonk brown, both were delicious. Pours very light yellow color. Enormous head, and I poured carefully too. Had a metal band holding the cork in place to hold back the high carbonation. Head was everlasting. Very dry aroma. A bit musty and some orange peel. Light airy head. Flavor is mostly yeasty with some citrus. Very smooth and soft character, especially considering the high carbonation. Well done. Wisps of bubbly lace.

Nice yeast, banana and bread dough nose. Big long lasting frothy head on this golden colored brew. Liveley carbonation. Intens Herb and koriander taste, long lasting.

Sun-gold and hazy with a head like fluffy clouds, aroma of lemons, spice, and yeast. Crisp bright flavor like light nutmeg sprinkled on cold pears with a twist.

3fourths (9059) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - FEB 24, 2005
UPDATED: DEC 19, 2012 750 mL. Beautiful bright yellow color with a full fluffy white head. Very crisp and peppy on the tongue... some tart yet sweet lemon and wheat flavors. Mellow, sour creamy and salty lemons in the finish. Iím really into this one... different than the usual big alcohol sniffing you get with a tripel, this one is a drinker for sure. Very fresh tasting and bright in the mouth. A winner that illustrates how big alcohol isnít always better.

Brighter golden color, cloudy with a frothy white head that lasted. Milder aroma, still with your typical triple elements of spice, yeast, and lighter fruits, namely banana and pear. Fuller flavored, lightly sweet, fruity and yeasty. Rich body, creamy, yet delicate. Velvety. Very well constructed and almost impossible not to like.

A very pleasant surprise. My wife is a big fan of this one. A sharp, floral nose leads into a fresh yet intriciate flavour. The alcohol (high for a blonde at 7.5) blends nicely in the mix to give depth without being overpowering. Notes of citrus, maybe a touch of peach, plenty of spice. A great finish with a lingering zest on the palate. A real corker!

lamas (1546) - Washington DC, USA - FEB 17, 2005
750 ml bottle. Best before date: 20/08/06. Pours a pale gold with HUGE fluffy white head. Aroma is fruity, floral and hoppy with that distinctive yeastiness. Taste is well-balanced. A little yeast evident at the start. Fruits and hops are present too. Iím a little let down by this one. A solid beer but nothing too exceptional. Not nearly as flavorful as the brown ale.
