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.

This brew pours a light cloudy honey amber. The tall white frothy head is of average duration with good lacing. The nose is weak with hints of fruit and sawdust, chalky banana, alcohol, yeast and flowers. The flavor is metallic and shallow especially for the style. A hint of warmth and sweetness is recognizable. The light dry body is fizzy and the finish feels metallic. I'm not impressed. I'm definitely not feeling the love.

Lively, golden color, not quite clear. Pale malt aroma, some hops. Fizzy, yet full bodied. Very nice.

A typical highly carbonated belgium beer with a cloudy color and a citrus flavor. Not a bad belgium, but certainly not better or worse than the typcial Belgium. I was hoping for a little bit more, but came away with the typical Belgium abbey.

UPDATED: FEB 23, 2004 Light yellow/somewhat cloudy, with some honey/golden tinges. Smells like a mix of hops and yeast, though more citrus hoppiness than yeast. Begins very dry, like biting into a not yet ripe green apple. Some body comes through and there is a understated hop character with some floral tones. I thought it finished medium full and did not thin out. There was the typical yeasty taste left on the palate and some sour notes to go with it. Drawbacks are a tad bit of astringency and maybe a bit too much carbonation, though this is a great tripel, no hint of alcohol.

This poured an orangish yellow color with a small head that left nice lacing. It had a fruity slightly musty aroma. Had a light fruity citrus and banana flavor,,, very good.

One of my favorites so far. Aroma is apricots and pears. It has a wonderfully big head and decent lacing. Flavor is apricots and a bit of spice. Wonderful mouthfeel.. very smooth. I'm very pleased with this one.

UPDATED: JUL 28, 2003 This beer pours nice and clear - very golden. Large head quickly diminishes, leaving a few trace lacings. Nose is citrusy, with a little malt, and a nice bready aroma. I was dissapointed with the taste... Perhaps I'm too used to thick, dark stouts, but this felt more like a medium-bodied lager, than a pale ale. Stick with the brown - it's much more robust.

Sweet malty aroma slight spice and must to it. Light cloudy golden yellow; with a large fluffy white head to it. Very pleasing malty sweet, slight citrus and spice flavour. Beautiful feel. Excellent beer.

Pour this beer gently, indeed. Out of the 750 ML bottle, it fills a glass with an enormous, rocky white head due to its bottle conditioning. There are some rather large bubbles and the head does melt away rather quickly with only scant lacing on the glass. The beer itself is a pale, golden yellow color. There is a complex aroma of yeast, light hops and citrus. The palate itself is light bodied and superbly refreshing, with a dry, bubbly champagne-like front end that quickly yields to lemon and grapefruit notes with a hint of hops and, perhaps, coriander. There is a slight, but not unpleasant, hint of alcohol in the short, dry finish.
