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.

SpringsLicker (3458) - Tennessee, USA - DEC 1, 2004
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.

DocLock (9999) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 16, 2004
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.

OKBeer (1171) - Halifax, Nova Scotia, CANADA - NOV 15, 2004
330 ml bottle, best before 14/01/06. Lightly hazy golden yellow colour with a huge, mostly lasting, frothy, pillowy, and rocky white head. Citrus, yeasty, lightly grassy, and lightly spicy aroma. Dry subtle citrus, spice, and yeasty flavours with a light alcohol finish. Light to medium bodied, creamy but refreshing mouthfeel.

sloth (2809) - Ceciltucky, Co., Maryland, USA - NOV 14, 2004
Medium sized white head, good retention and lacing. Hazy, straw color. Lots of floaties. Yeasty, flowery nose. Light bodied, spritzy. Light malt notes, citrus, lemony notes, fruity. Finish is dry refreshing.

Doppelganger (1388) - Dry County, Arkansas, USA - NOV 1, 2004
Pours pale straw color with tons of creamy egg-shell white head of fine bubbles that linger nicely. Nice spring-fresh aroma. A pleasant combination of flowery hops and estery fruitness. Estery banana and clove in the tastes too. Bit of soapiness in the finish. (I mean that in good way.) Body is on the thin side, but smooth and pleasant.

Eyedrinkale (3213) - Astoria, New York, USA - OCT 30, 2004
33 cl bottle. Cloudy gold color with nice head when poured into a Corsendonk glass. Aroma is fruity and peppery spicy. Taste is lightly hopped but more of the same spices that are in the aroma. Mouthfeel is pretty lively and carbonated. Just a tad sour with taste of yeatiness.

MiP (15272) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - OCT 26, 2004
Bottle. Nice malty, full flavour, but way too weak flavour for the ABV.
