TChrome (1414) - Bedford, Texas, USA - MAR 19, 2009
Beer pours golden color with a nice, big fluffy egg white head that is retained. Aroma is mostly yeasty, with just a hint of the hops. Flavor is right on with the big Belgian Trippels. Lots of yeasty goodness with a significant bitter finish which is unusual for the style. This is imressive beer IMO in the sense that Green Flash, a West Coast brewer, is producing a Belgian style quite well. Yum.

mmmbeer (1234) - Austin, Texas, USA - MAR 19, 2009
22 oz. bottle served in trappist glass- poured slightly turbid copper orange color, low-medium carbonation, half finger white head with small bubbles and laced to a degree. Aroma of citrus, yeast, pine, and a note of peppercorn. Hits the mouth with a high-medium body, malt is there and has a pleasant sweet tang to it, some hops and spice in the middle, finish is complete and has notes of unrefined sugar, spice, and yeast. Very interesting- and dang near gone since I started writing this review.

Pours golden with belgian yeast aroma. Nice malty base upon which some grapefruit/citrus, pine, and belgian yeast flavors can be found. Nice moderate/high bitterness. Finish is of belgian yeast. Unique and interesting.

Madsnp (933) - DENMARK - MAR 18, 2009
Bottle. Sligt hazy golden with a nice lacing egg white head. Aromas of hoppy grapefruit, peaches, oranges, banana and flowerfields in the springtime. The flavour is sweet an malty with a hoppy and bitter backbone. Notes of caramel, bread, lemon, spicy pepper, pine and grapefruit. Crisp.

mpersinger (347) - , California, USA - MAR 17, 2009
From bomber, pour shows amazing clarity and moderately high carbonation in a straw-colored ale. Aroma and flavor feature clean hops from pale ale component and sweet malt residuals from trippel. Lean but not weak in body. Finish gets hoppier and bitterness outstrips the alcohol warmth.

kidmartinek (3539) - austin, Texas, USA - MAR 17, 2009
Apricot colored with a 2.5 inch dirty white head. Nose is delicious but mellow belgian yeast, citrus, grapfruit, banana, and hops. Flavor is mellow sweet belgian ale with a grapefruit like summit hop finish. Slow burn. Mild lacing. A treat of a brew if you can afford it. Mixes the best of both styles well.

acearl (384) - The Ham, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 15, 2009
Different and a little dry to bitter aftertaste seemingly from the yeast. Hybrid, interesting idea, more of a trippel as far as clove and spicey. I really didn’t get the IPA characteristice. Worth trying again but $12 for a 22oz bomber, there are better values out there.

(22oz bottle) Medium off-white head atop a murky amber body. Aroma is medium sweet, yeast, clove, some grapefruit, pineapple. Taste is medium sweet, yeast, grapefruit, some clove, light pineapple. Dusky, fairly dry finish. Medium body, fairly smooth.
