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.

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 (9108) - 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. Im 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 isnt always better.

IPFreely (1470) - Sanborn, New York, USA - FEB 24, 2005
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 (1550) - 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. Im a little let down by this one. A solid beer but nothing too exceptional. Not nearly as flavorful as the brown ale.

dortmunder (961) - Herdecke, GERMANY - FEB 17, 2005
Bottled. Pale, cloudy yellow colour. Big, bubbly head, though frothy on top. Light aroma, mainly spicy, citric. Fruity, spicy and malty taste. Peachy, citric. Hoppy, medium bitter finish. It has a fine and contained taste and hides it alcohol pretty well. Nice.

Yellow/gold color with a white head. Aroma is sweet malt, spice, hops, and fruit. Flavor is spice, malt, fruit, and yeast. Very good and easy drinking.

TheRimmer (483) - Florida, USA - FEB 6, 2005
SPicey aroma, a bit of a skunk essence. inital taste was like sour garbage and the finish was a spicey hop boquet. Very well balanced. This is the brew that i drank last, sending me over the edge. i spent the rest of the morning blowing chunks of undigested onion out of my nose.
