Sampled at the Southside Beer Expo. Clody yellow with a fluffy head. Taste is tart and citrusy, more so than one expects from a Belgian.

Cloudy golden color with some sediment, thin head. Low carbonation. Inviting aroma of citrus and yeast. Nice citrus, mild hops and yeast flavors, bitter finish. Standard trippel flavors with some bitterness, not bad but when a beer tastes like a trippel, I compare it to my all time favorite trippel, Westmalle and it sadly pales in comparison.

Pours a nice darkened gold color with another uber-head. Aroma is spicy and fruity. Taste is very similar with more yeast and malt mixed in. Very tasty beverage.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
small bottle. Pours with a billowing white head over a clear golden liquid. Aroma of orage, lemon, alcohol, straw, and banana. Flavor is candi sugar, bananas again, lemon, grass, alcohol, pretty harsh. Not terribly pleasant. Maybe this just isn’t my thing? Quite hot going down too.

UPDATED: JUL 29, 2004 750 ml bottle. Yellow in color with a white head. Malty. Very carbonated. Big alcohol component. Needs to age.
I tasted a aged bottle last night. It said 2001 on the cork. It was so good. Nice and sweet with some spiceyness. The aroma was citrusy. Enjoyable beer. Smooth.

750 ml bottle, 2003 cork. Was hoping for an older bottle. Clear yellow with a big white head. Heavy carbonation. Banana like Krystal aroma. Flavor has a big alcohol component. Just way too young. Bananas again in the flavor. This needs to sit a couple of years to be good.

Nice golden hazy body topped with a thick bubbly head. Very pleasant citrus/orange nose with some hints of coriander and bubble gum that hides the alcohol perfectly. Nice hoppy and floral taste that carries some tiny notes of acidity. The smokey texture makes it special. It ends with a long bitter final. This is a very good and quite original product.
