Pours a deep gold, with lively carbonation and half an inch of white foam. It keeps a ring and a thin layer of foam for the head, providing pretty decent lace. Sweet/tart aroma of fruit, grain, honey, and alcohol. Nice flavor - honeymalt, sweet fruitiness, light candi, a touch of cereal grain, and a bit of orangey citrus in the finish. Medium body, moderately light carbonation. The alcohol that I detected in the aroma is not to be found in flavor or mouthfeel. Good combination of flavors and balance - quite drinkable. In a way, it kinda reminds me of Kuhnhenn’s Simcoe Silly

SpringsLicker (3046) - Tennessee, USA - JAN 14, 2007
This starts with a small creamy head of off-white with a clear dark yellow body. Light malt aroma that is jooined by a touch of apple, honey and peppery spice. The flavor profile is balanced, light malt and a touch of hop bitterness. Good, but not overly complex.

Bottled courtesy of Stoutlover72 Thanks Garrett. Poured a cloudy yellow blonde body with decent size head. Aroma is of yeast, malt and hops. A slight fruity flavor with yeast and some more of the malt and hops. Decent tripel.

Pleasant if unremarkable abbey trip. Tasted like an average belgian blond. Nothing to write home about but then again it was decent.

Bottle. Pours a deep golden with a white head. Sweet-sour malty and hoppy aroma with grassy notes. Sweetish hoppy flavour. Slightly metallic with yeasty notes which becomes increasingly present as it warms. Grassy and dryish finish. 30-12-06.

Bottle at 2Prinsen. Citrusy tripel with taste of orange rinds. Finishes off with bitter, metalic taste.

Average blond beer. Fairly comparable with other Belgian blonds. Nothing outstanding either good or bad. Could easily sit in the pub and drink a couple with friends anytime.

An excellent light tripel. Very creamy head with a golden color. Very malty, like tripels, with a slight hint of orange and malt. Also some other herbs that are not able to be distinguished. An excellent beer.

progrock (21) - Sacramento, California, USA - DEC 3, 2006
UPDATED: DEC 4, 2006 Pours golden-orange with a nice, lacy head. Malty and a bit of lemon at first. Slight nutty flavor follows, maybe a hint of corriander. Smooth, malty finish with a trace of sourness. Alcohol seems very well-hidden; drinks more like a single than a trippel. Reminds me of chrysanthemum and honey tea, perhaps oddly.
