I was suprised by this one. Bitter, some citrus, some honey, fruity. A nice beer.

a nice beer, quite hoppy for a belgian, still very good, citrus aroma and flavor.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
This beer initially poured with a huge head that rivaled Rosieís. But it was not as dense and disappated quickly. Nose is o.k. with some fruits and spice. But taste is a bit too floral and perfumy. Also this could be one of the hoppiest tripels Iíve ever tasted, usually not a bad thing but there is something about this beerís hoppiness that doesnít quite sit right with me. Itís not bad by any means, just not that impressive either. There are far better tripels out there.

This is the beer that taught me to like Belgium (not that their hasnít been many since.) Citrusy flavor, a gorgeous yellow hue which is emphasized by the spider lace head on the glass. Gentle but invigorating hop evervesence. A truly wonderful beer with year round appeal.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
A beer with scent and flavor of fruit. It has a pretty dark color for a Pale Ale. All in all a really good beer.

Small bottle. A golden yellow with some rising bubbles and a white head. A spicy citrus floral aroma. Mine did not have the head and carbonation that others suggested, maybe it was the 355ml bottle. A sweet, apple, and yeasty flavor. Light and refreshing.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pretty nice, nice fruity apple flavour, nice bitter finish, quite perfumy, but not overly so, a decent and standard belgian ale.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
My introduction to the world of belgian ales, at the time I thought it was the greatest thing ever, til I met several other belgians. Goes down easy, but a little on the weak side for a belgian.

Iíve wanted to give it a try for a while, finally got around too it. Very cloudy, high carbonation, fruity.
