Brouwerij (957) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - MAR 5, 2013
Bottle. Pours a mostly clear orange-gold with a finger of coarse white head. Settles to thin cap quickly with some stringy lacing. Aroma is wheaty, sweet, and soapy. Flavor is mildly bitter, fades into citrus tones with herbal and spicy character and a slight hop bitter. Mild maltiness in finish. Soft carbonation, medium body, and smooth, mildly astringent mouthfeel. An interesting, spicy tripel.

UncleKorm (1086) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - MAR 3, 2013
Bottle poured a hazy orange hue w/ a medium frothy off-white head mostly diminishing and good lacing. A moderate aroma of dough, pear, and grapefruit. Initial flavor light sweet with a light bitter finish of short duration. Taste has a grapefruit bite that dominates what is in the nose. It makes for a very bright and drinkable Tripel. Medium bodied, dry texture, lively carbonation, and a moderate alcoholic feel in the finish.

arrogantb (1402) - Denver, Colorado, USA - NOV 10, 2012
220z bottle split with some friends. This was a light hazy yellow color and had a smell to it that was slightly spicy indicating its belgian style nature. The flavor was like a mix of wit and tripel to me. Not syrupy like I find a lot of tripels to be. I also liked the fact that this did not have a very high alcohol content compared to most tripels. Overall, not bad especially for the price. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 03-26-2011 21:33:14

guzzler67 (1570) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - OCT 29, 2012
Cloudy, pale orange appearance with a small, greyish-white head and modest lacing. Initial barnyard aroma dissipates quickly and is replaced with yeast and spicy hops. Solid malt backbone paired well with the yeasty flavors up front and the dry, hoppy aftertaste. Medium bodied, well carbonated mouthfeel, noticable alcohol, all leading to a long lasting finish.
