Slightly hazy golden color with a thick white head. Carbonation looks very lively. Caramel, banana, some other fruit maybe apricot. Medium sweet taste. The carbonation is not as crazy as I expected from the looks of it but still quite fizzy. Alcohol leaves you with a warm feeling which is good because it lets you know this is a strong beer in case you forget after a few sips.

Bottle... pours a rich golden color white a fluffy white head. Strong aroma that makes you actually want to drink it. A unique flavor with a hint of fruitiness, but just the right amount of hops that reminds you that you are drinking a beer. Good experience.

Sour yeasty slightly grassy noise. Lots of carbonation somewhat hazy and light in color. Dense lacing. Sour taste with a bitter finish. Heavy on alcohol. Delightful mouth feel with a medium body.

Brewery Glassware on Tap (Sharp Edge, Pgh) Clingy white head, on top of a straw/gold clear pour. Aroma of light hop, some yeast, hidden alcohol. Flavor of banana, tropical fruits, boozy, with a warm carbonated bite on the palate. Warmth remains long after, nice tripel.

This beer stood in my storage for a long time. By the time I drank it, it was 7 months over date. I tried it expectiong nothing, and this idea appeared to be confirmed when I opened it. A bread-yeast aroma came out, which I have never smelled before while opening a beer. So I thought this was the end of the exercise. Also the head disappeared fast. But when I tasted it, it was an utter surprise to me. The taste went from fruity to clearly acid-bitter. Wow, what a surprise. The body of this beer was very un-blond, and more orange hazy.

Alcohol was masked terribly. Unfortunately the flavor was masked fairly well. This is a bland over priced import. The bottle was beautiful, but the taste left much to be desired.

Large Liter Bottle: Pours a cloudy yellow-orange with a very thin head that dissipates quickly. Sugars and citrus fruits dominate the nose. Initial impression is of sweet apricots with a smooth bourbon-like hint of that 11% ABV. It finishes slightly sweet with a semi-dry honey aftertaste. This was a very good beer. In my excitement, I poured in some of the sediment as I finished off the bottle. This will become one of my go-to beers for a cold winter’s night after a good day of skiing!

Nice fruity and well balanced tripel. The impressive amount of alcohol was efficiently masked by the typical Belgium palate. Great golden colour with little haze and long lasting body. Leaves very pleasent bittersweet peachy aftertaste which gets stronger when the beer gets warmer. Don’t forget to serve it @ ~9 C. Well done one.
