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. This ale best enjoyed before 11/9/05. Poured a large white head that was mostly diminishing with fine-small sized bubbles, fair lacing, carbonated, transparent, and a yellow hue. Malty, hoppy, citrusy aroma. Flavor was sweet, fruity and somewhat dry. Smooth, dry mouthfeel. Medium bodied.

This beer has a blond body - hue apperance and a coarse white scum collar. I have drunk the beer from the bottle and it had a little carbonic acid. The initial flavor taste is fruity.

lachesis (757) - St Idesbald, BELGIUM - DEC 9, 2004
Light hazy gold-blond beer with nice fluffy head. Refreshing lemony smell with good malty aroma’s and fine hint of vegetal hops. It has a medium full taste with again this citrusy-fruity accent and the clear taste of malts and hops. This is not a very complex beer but it has a clear taste and a good balance.

Gorbalev (3000) - Ontario, CANADA - DEC 3, 2004
Budels take note: this is what lcbo gift pack bottles should taste like. Cloudy yellow pour, huge white head. Lots of spice, yeast, and bread notes in aroma. Taste is crisp with lots more spice, and a nice lingering bitterness. Alcohol is disguised very well, this could have been 4% and I would not have known, the other flavours are so dominant. Very enjoyable.

beerandrugby (210) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - DEC 2, 2004
Bottle. Very pretty color; hazy yellow-orange, looks the color of honey. Lightly frothy white head. Laced the glass very well. Very sweet, yeasty, then slightly hoppy end. Malt and yeast more prevalent than hops. First Belgian beer I have been able to try! Very nice, I will buy this one again. Could have enjoyed it more if the girlfriend wasn’t yelling for me to clean the house!!

Hazy gold in color with a substantial frothy head that leaves a nice lace on the sides of the glass. Citric flowery aroma. Complex fruity flavor that is sweet at the start with a bit of dryness towards the end. This Belgian is consistently available in my area.

UPDATED: FEB 12, 2005 This was fine. It is a good and high quality beer. It is just too sweet for my personal taste. I would recommend this though.

wnp22 (698) - Toronto (Roncesvalles Village), Ontario, CANADA - NOV 22, 2004
Tasted in Toronto, home of the 2004 Grey Cup Champions, the Toronto Argonauts. Argooooooos!!!!!! Appearance is deep golden yellow colour, fairly rich looking for what I expected. Pours an initial big white head, but dissapates to a nice consistent thin white head. Aroma is of citric lemon, possibly orange with a hint of alcohol presence. Not at all disturbing. Flavour is floral and estery. Nice initial fruit hints with a slighty bitter finish that nicely represents the style. Pretty good stuff.

As a beer, this one is great. As an abbey tripel, it is even better. Pours slightly turbid pale gold with a behemoth head that lingers longer than a Jehovah’s witness. Great aroma of malt, hopcit, candi sugar, chardonnay, champagne, and fruit....definite 9 for aroma. Tastes bold, full-bodied, with a nice "fizziness" and a multitude of flavor layers, including the aforementioned hopcit, light fruit, candi sugar, and malt. I really like this beer. I just wish it wasn;t so expensive.
