AdamChandler (3743) - Enfield, New Hampshire, USA - JUN 30, 2012
Stored in the cellar for a while...maybe 4 months? Enjoyed in a Delirium glass at cellar temp so around 62 degrees.

A - 1-finger yellow-ish head that subsided quick to nothing. SRM of 9. Dark slightly dark hues of gold and orange. Minor haze but overall pretty clear.

S - Very sweet. Pears and bright flowers. pollen and honeysuckle. big bright smell. Apples? It’s really gorgeous.

T - Wow. Super nice. Mild hop aroma is dominated by apples and oranges. Melons. yeah, lots of melons and a hint of vanilla. Honey brightness on the finish.

M - 40% carbonation on the mouth swish. Medium body with a crisp finish. Honestly, the mouthfeel is not reminiscent of a belgian strong ale. More like a Saison.

O - Very crisp and bright. Nice taste indeed. I liked this one a lot.

Mr_TBone (168) - Hollywood, California, USA - JUN 10, 2012
Nice golden color with thick head that turns to a sheen with nice lacing throughout. Smells instantly of big green apples then slowly goes away to some spiciness and subtle sweet malt and fermented fruit. Taste is surprisingly tart and citrus peels, but dry and has a lingering touch of malt on the back end. Nice carbonation but overall this beer is just OK.

TheBeerGod (5595) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - MAY 29, 2012
Bottle - 750mL crowned. Hazy gold with a short, fizzy white head. Aroma is spicy and yeast with fruit notes, flowers and sweet malt. Taste is spice and yeast up front with candied fruit, sweet malt, sponge cake, flowers and soft bitter hops throughout the remnants. Body is medium with a strong, effervescent carbonation. Finishes with more yeast notes, soft bitter hops, ripe tropical fruit, cake notes, sweet malt, soft spice and floral notes.

ddemmingjr (784) - Chagrin Falls, Ohio, USA - MAY 28, 2012
Bottle from Rare Beer Club: pours cloudy grapefruit golden, decent white head that recedes to a fine ring. Lemon zest, wheat, smells like a Tripel, bread malts, Belgian yeast. More of the same on the palate as there's a rich body as well. Esters and cane sugar sweetness are slightly overdone for me but this is a reasonable Tripelesque blonde. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

thirdeye11 (5817) - Dallas, Texas, USA - MAY 19, 2012
(750ml bottle thanks to TheBrewJournal) clearish bright gold, fine creamy edge bubbles. Nose is tripel-like, white grapes, light tinge of alcohol. Taste of alcohol, wheat, tripel-like, spicy Belgian yeast, and very light metallic notes pop up occasionally. The linger isn’t my favorite, alcohol, a bit more sugar might be needed, or something to hide the alochol.

marcus (7672) - Sacramento, California, USA - APR 30, 2012
Bottle from Healthy Spirits. Pours cloudy blonde with a nice off-white head and a floral citrus aroma. There is a sweet caramel malt flavor with some hop bitterness and a bit of grape, perhap from the yeast.
