2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottled In the 330ml painted bottle with the signature pink pachyderm. A clear blond straw color...fine bubbled carbonation from bottle conditioning. Frothy white head. Aromas of floral hopping some fruit and musty yeast...very Champagne-like in smell and apperance. Weakly oily palate, hops are subdued in the body, sweetish some spritzyness and detectable alcohol that leaves a yeasty-cider impression when it mingles with the saaz hops and finishes rather abruptly with not much after taste but the alcohol warming. Not the experience I expected after all the hype.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
A lot structured, intense body. Foam of long persistence. Mildew aroma and wine cellar. Elegant perhaps too much alcoholic.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pretty good. Nce to see the LCBO bring some belgians. Golden yeloow colour and fruity nose almost suggest a triple. Nos and flavour is fruity with a hit of yeast. A little rough around the edges with the alcohol but pretty good.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
This is pretty good, although its balance makes it indistinct at times. Musty, fruity aroma. Unique label, roasted apricot coloring. Peachy, with a nice acid/sweetness/bitterness balance. The finish is pleasantly fruity, with a good bodyweight. Not too fizzy.

Light gold- mostly clear but last pourings go cloudy. Modest head that fades and gives way to an alcoholic and spicy aroma. Flavor is over the top with alcohol spice and wierd yeasty flavors. A slight horse-blanket flavor is noticed towards the end. Overly carbonated and has a somewhat harsh aftertaste but goes well with spicy foods and cheeses I noticed.

Bottle. Big brown head. Strong fruity aroma. Intesne flavor with lots of spices and raisons or berrylike taste. Very carbonated, almost like a champagne. So much flavor it feels like a pink elephant and dancing aligators are partying in your mouth. A very memorable beer.

Hazy orange golden, foamy snow white head. Typical tripel aroma, sharp fruity and citrusy with lots of yeast and hay tones. Typical tripel flavor as well. Dry, yeasty, hayish and citrusy. Harsh finish. I canít believe it isnít listed as a tripel?! All right beer, Iím just not very fond of this style!
