Pour is a cloudy yellow with an average white head. Aroma is some citrus,yeast and spice. Flavor is again lots of citrus and spice with a litte barnyard toward the end. This is pretty good and a decent sipper.

marcus (8010) - Sacramento, California, USA - SEP 9, 2010
Bottle from City Beer. Pours cloudy golden with a massive white head and a floral fruity aroma. There is a standard blonde tripel flavor, with lots of carbonation, banana ester and spice. It lacks the depth of the really good Belgian tripels.

bhensonb (12968) - Woodland, California, USA - SEP 4, 2010
Bottle from Monument in Concord, CA. Pours hazy, dirty gold with a 4 finger foamy white head. Aromas of fruit and yeast/spice. Near medium body with frothy carbonation. Spice is strong - like ginger. Or pepper. Aroma becomes incense like. It tends toward dry and bitter. But the spice is the strongest aspect. Goes astringent in the finish. Really flavorful.

Hoevebrouwers Toria Sampled on 5/7/2010. This Belgian ale pours a hazy orange gold color from a 33cl bottle. Medium to large sized white rocky foamy head, with excellent retention and nice lacing. The aroma is fruity, citrusy, and slightly spicy. A medium bodied Belgian Ale. The malts are fruity and sweet, touch of citrus. Nice carbonation. A touch of tartness sneaks in there every once in a while. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and dry. Aftertaste is slightly sweet with a touch of tartness.

Bart (2938) - Brussels, BELGIUM - MAY 6, 2010
Golden blond coloured beer with some average carbonation and a short white head. Light herby malty hinted aroma with a full palate. FInish is bitter, light malty touched. Normal Belgian ale but nod bad.

beerbill (3576) - Laurel, New York, USA - APR 25, 2010
11.2 oz. bottle. Pours a hazy yellow gold that unfortunately looks exactly like urine with a thin-moderate white head that lasted through three-quarters of the glass and left partial lace. The aroma is somewhat sour with some yeast in the nose as well. The flavor is mild malt with some sourness, lightly spiced yeast, and grassy hops. Light-medium bodied. At $4.50/bottle, not something I’d look to revisit.
