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.

Huge rocky white head atop hazy light golden hued body. Flowery aroma. Slight hint of honey sits on back of tongue for most of swallow. Light, crisp mouthfeel yields a lightly hoppy finish. Easily a summer beer.

UPDATED: AUG 21, 2003 Pale golden in color(hazy) with a large frothy white head. Slighly hoppy aroma with notes of fruit and clove. Light and refreshing with some hops in the finish.

RichardGretton (4247) - Leicestershire, ENGLAND - MAY 14, 2003
Very pale Belgian style blonde beer, with a semi-fruity nose. Malted lightly hopped flavour , with a slighy citric edge. A good beer but not as complex as most Belgian ales.

rickgordon (3843) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - MAY 10, 2003
UPDATED: APR 11, 2010 Hazy golden with a rich head. Sweet malty with doughy touch. Spicy yeast. Nothing special.

Probiere (992) - Iowa, USA - MAY 2, 2003
Big, soapy-foamy head, nose of spices, grapefruit, pouffy hops. Taste is a little flat and simple; round and full in the mouth, though. Finish is grapefruity and gets more so as it warms. At room temp it’s positively lip-puckering. Not bad, but after the dubbel I was expecting more. Fluffy and somewhat insubstantial.

UPDATED: MAY 6, 2003 Re-rate: Had this one again last night and really enjoyed it. Maybe I got a skunky bottle the first time.

Uglyradio (791) - Greenville, South Carolina, USA - APR 19, 2003
This one pours a cloudy, orange tinged golden color with a big, lingering, rocky white head. The aroma is lightly malty with some hops, spices, and yeasts present. Medium body with lively carbonation, the flavor is citrusy and hoppy up front with some spiciness. The finish is slightly sweet with some fruitiness and hop accents. Smooth and very drinkable.

Shag (2603) - Chattanooga, Tennessee, USA - APR 15, 2003
I loved the Brown ale version, and for a pale version its just as complex. Bitter citrus flavor. Hides the alcohol well. Good complex Tripel. I would suggest this beer and brewery to anyone!

Hansen (6602) - Assentoft, DENMARK - APR 9, 2003
For me it was not one of the better belgish beers. Well, nice, fruity aroma, but not as complex as expected.

yeaty orange-like aroma, large frothy head, lots of pieces of floating sediment, sharp apple like flavour, some wheatiness, grapefruit finish.
