Although the color was pale, and flat looking in the glass, the big flavor really caught me quite offguard. I did notice the citrus smell up front, but the full-body of this beer is quite remarkable. A really tasty beer. Notably the finish is a little weak, but no more then I have come to expect from this style of beer. No doubt, this would be a nice summer beer and a big session beer. Probably a great keg beer that could be slammed all night long with buddies. Cheers.

Gr0ve (2173) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAR 30, 2007
330 ml bottle. Amber colour, crystal clear, and with lots of bubbles rising to the surface. Medium-sized consistent, but coarse white head. Rich lemony and apricoty aroma. Sweet notes, but still refreshing because of the fruit. Light flavours. High carbonation level makes this a refreshing and lively beer. Finishes with a light resiny flavour.

Strong but fresh hoppy aroma. Hazy golden colour. Fresh, lemony sharp flavour. Smooth clean texture.

bottle - Tripel? hmm... I don’t know about that. Pours clear and golden with a big, fluffy head. The aroma is yeasty, malty, and flowery. The flavor is sweet with some nice citrus notes. Medium bodied, lively on the palate, and easy going down with a clean finish, this is a pleasant lighter ale. Quite enjoyable.

BustedFlat (554) - Edina, Minnesota, USA - MAR 22, 2007
Poured from a 330ml bottle into a tulip glass, golden with a medium and quickly diminishing white head. Aroma of yeast and citrus fruit. The taste was sweet up front with notes of apple and pear, but fades into ambiguity as it warms. Watery mouthfeel with medium carbonation. I don’t understand why this is categorized as a tripel. Grimbergen makes a tripel and this is advertised as a blonde ale and it certainly drinks like one.

KnutAlbert (6349) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAR 19, 2007
Very full malt taste, a bit sweet, but that is balanced by a strong aroma from the yeast and a sourness in the finish. Some yeast lingers on the tongue. A bit rough, not the Duvel smoothness, but a pleasant beer.

UPDATED: MAY 18, 2008 Light and airy is a good way to describe this brew. Wheats, faint floral, citrus, banana. A refreshing candy sweetness. The body is heavy and malty and the finish is just barely bitter. Easily drinkable.

Bottle at Winking Lizard - Pours golden with a big white head that stays well and leaves some lace. Aromas of apple, yeast, grain, and some pear. Flavor is yeast, apple, pear, and grains. Light and airy and pretty well carbonated.
