On tap at MacGregor’s Amherst. Very malty. Lacy sheet. Smooth but boozy not so fruity or spicy.

Beerman6686 (4170) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 9, 2014
This one poured a bright dark yellow to orange with a whit ehead. Aroma was of belgian spices, candy sugar, and mild fruit undertones. Flavorw as on the sweeter side, pretty clean for an americain tripel, just not really my thang.

troyc (2422) - Illinois, USA - MAY 8, 2014
[Tap] Muddy orange color with a small cap of head. Excellent looking lacing. Aromas of Belgian yeast, clove and grainy malts. Taste includes more clove, nutmeg, vanilla, cereal grains, banana, dough, residual sweetness, toasted breads and darker fruits like plum. Nice complexity. Rich body. Originally I thought the balance between yeast/malt seemed a little off, but this beer really grew on me as I drank it.

Chudwick (1972) - Cincyucky, Kentucky, USA - APR 30, 2014
growler into Le Wobbly Watou - Nose is best described as a La Fin du Monde. Grassy, fruity, spicy, Belgian candy, and citrus peel. Sweet, with a bitter finish. A great value.

rondphoto (1784) - Lakeside Park, Kentucky, USA - APR 29, 2014
on tap @ Drake’s / Florence KY --- Hazy medium orange amber, with a rim head and light streaks of lace. Semi-sweet toffee malt, a bit of wood, a bit of warmth, then a bit of bittering that yields to the malt again in the finish. A nice Belgian style ale, satisfying, full-bodied. Recommended.

b33r (668) - Cleveland, Ohio, USA - APR 25, 2014
Burnt orange color with medium off-white head and minimal lacing. Aroma is malty and yeasty. Flavor has light fruits, nice spice and yeastiness, with a strong amber malt. Oily mouthfeel, thick, with a slight alcohol tingle.

Had a glass on tap at Alexandria’s in Findlay. Meh, I’m not a big fan of the style, but this was ok. Too boozy and sweet for me.
