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.

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.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

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!

For me it was not one of the better belgish beers. Well, nice, fruity aroma, but not as complex as expected.
