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.

I am rating a bottle that was bought in March of 1998 and has been cellared since then. Small gusher; lost about 20% after cork was removed. Hazy yellow body with a one finger thick foamy white head. Nose is sour-at fist I hought that this one had gone bad. Taste is really, really layered. The first and strongest taste to come through is smoke. There is a strong taste of roasted malts. Along with that there is banana, clay, oak, apple/pear, very light pepper and clove, and a very low key hop flavor. There is layer upon layer of flavor here. I do not get the acidity, metal tastes, or citrus that others have described. This is very mellow and nice. From reading others descriptions, I can only asume that the age in this beer has manifested itself in the woody/oaky/smokey and mild taste.

Pours a nice cloudy yellow with a fluffy head into it’s matching glass. Rather light aroma of lemon, yeast, alcohol. Smooth and poppin on the tongue. Malty tastes up front with the Belgian yeast features up front with obvious banana notes and some citrus. A hoppy dry finish for this one. A very nice departure from the other belgians I’ve had.

Pigfoot (2268) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - SEP 5, 2004
Appearance: slightly cloudy, palish-gold color, with a slight, faint white head. Sharply aromatic, big, fruity hops (peach, apricot, orange). Great, big, buzzing blitz on the tongue, mellowing soon, but returning with each and every return to the lips. Nicely balanced, good, yet light body, very sweet, a bit sophisticated, quite tasty, all in all, a lovely Belgian pale ale, though far from the side of spectactacular. (But, who’s holding that against it?)

pours with a hazy body and short, quick head; aromas of spice, pears, lemons, and inflorenscence; mild, sweet flavor with notes of orange and perfumey spiciness;, a little metallic; smooth, creamy palate; overall a pretty mild trip with well hidden alcohol

guzzler67 (1647) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - AUG 14, 2004
Clear golden appearance with a larger than average head. Yeasty, fruity aroma. Smooth, soft fruit taste with suggestions of peach, pear and apple. Near perfect carbonation (had on tap), with a slightly tart, long lasting finish.

Belgian tripels are not my thing but this was very pleasant. Nice balance and not too herbal/floral. Still wouldn’t drink it without food.

Not a whole lot to say here...poured hazy gold with a rich tripel head...smells yeasty with a hint of citrus...light in the mouth with hints of sweetness...good, but a little bland...
