Pours clear medium yellow with a huge frothy head. Boring aroma, slightly yeasty. Burning mouthfeel from all the alcohol, tastes of little else besides. Another one for the sink from Honsebrouck.

stegosaurus (1882) - Levittown, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 25, 2006
Bottle. Pours hazy golden with a decent sized white head. Aroma of yeast, belgian spices, sweet malts, citrus, and alcohol. Flavor is surprisingly smooth, citrus, yeasty, spices are present. Good body, good brew.

jpm30 (1587) - East Central, Georgia, USA - JUN 9, 2006
From a stubby capped 11.2 oz. brown bottle with a best before date on the lower right side of label, 03/2008, served in a chalice at cellar temperature. Made a decent appearance, poured a hazy orange hued pale golden with a foamy white head that settled into a thin lacing, good carbonation. Had a lemony, peppery, dry yeasty and spicy alcohol nose. A crisp, slick and carbonated smooth medium bodied mouth feel, good sipping drinkability. Pear fruity, clove and peppery taste, a sweet maltiness, solvent flavored alcohol warmth in the palate, and a sweet malty crisp, yeasty and solvent finish. A nice tripel, tasty and balanced overall, a good sipper on a warm midwest night.

TomDecapolis (4617) - Milton, Delaware, USA - APR 7, 2006
On tap at Ortinos Northside. Pours a very hazy golden with a small lacing head. Aroma was very fruity, bubblegum, Belgian spices and yeast. Very nice aroma. Flavor along the same lines. Some lemon and listed as a Tripel at the bar which I would agree with. Very solid for the style.
