thebeertourist (5170) - Oslo, NORWAY - FEB 9, 2008
Bottle. Clear golden with a white head. Sweet, malty aroma with hints of herbs. Herbal flavours blend with sugary malts. Drinkable, but too sweet.

thegreenrooster (3893) - St.louis, Missouri, USA - FEB 7, 2008
Pour is a bright golden with a average white head. Aroma is full of peppery spice and yeast. Flavor is a bit of a let down. You get some of the yeast and creamyness that you should get in a tripel but everything is muted. Finish is very watery. Much better out there and im glad i only got a single instead of the entire six pack.

blklab2007 (2118) - Connecticut, USA - FEB 4, 2008
bottle poured a light golden in color with a steady mid range stream of carbination producing a thick white one finger head that became a pillow on the surface that lasted the whole glass. aroma is mild floral yeast, some citrus rind, a light sourness, and some candy sugar. mouth feel is light with good carbination on the tongue. flavor is more sweet than the nose, grape skins, floral yeast, thickness from the malt, and light background hops. very drinkable brew but not as chewy as i would like. finishes on the dry end with sweetness and flowery caramel.

Pours a clear medium golden color with great lacing and a foamy tan head. Spicy aroma with some yeast and honey. Nice flavor, lightly sweet with more of the honey and some fruit. Very refreshing.

I remember the first time I had this. Not so good I remember the first time, I just remember being thrown out of a bar in Paris. I agree with the bloke below, very drinkable but there are much better beers of this style. Decent but like my report card, could do better.

joekfsu (138) - Boardman, Ohio, USA - JAN 31, 2008
11.2 oz bottle. Pours clear gold with 2 cm foamy off white head that is slowly diminishing. Aromas of orange, spice and yeast are balanced. Initial flavor is mostly citrus. Dry and slightly bitter aftertaste that is moderately lasting. Good lacing, light carbonation, light to medium body, and light hints of alcohol. Drinkable but better available options exist.

yespr (39608) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - JAN 31, 2008
33 cL bottle. Pours clear golden yellow to orange with a huge slight off-white and collapsing head. Malt and yeasty spiced aroma. Classic belgian yeast flavour, light citrus fruity and spiced. In addition a malt note and a decent bitterness is available, almost pilsner like. Ends nicely bitter and dry.

Tripplebrew (778) - Saint Paul, Minnesota, USA - JAN 30, 2008
Pours a clear, golden-honey with a thick layer of white head. Aroma is of of yeast, fruit and biscuity undertones. Taste is a little bit of fruit and yeast with that same biscuit flavor to offset the tart fruit flavors. It’s a decent blonde but not at the top of my list.
