3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
750 ml. big 'ole brown Belgian bottle. Corked and caged. No freshness date seen anywhere. Not even on the cork. When uncaged, the cork practically shot out of the bottle. Highly carbonated, very effervescent. Strong, slightly off-white head hung around forever. Poured out a light, golden color, with major chill haze here. Aromas are of lemons, funky Belgian yeast, some malts, but no hops whatsoever. Thin mouthfeel from too much carbonation. Tastes of esters and fusel alcohols. Not much in the way of bitterness, other than from the lemon taste. Kind of funky, if you ask me. Not the best Belgian I ever had. More's the pity too.

Poured a hazy blonde color, bubbly white head, quite a bit of lace. Aroma of citrus, spice, and a bit of yeast. Slightly sweet, some lemon, banana, and a bit of earthy bitterness. Quite nice overall.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a clouded blond to almost amber. Nose is spiced with some citrus and spice. Excellent aroma! The taste seems to add to this with more citrus, white grape, coriander, banana, and spice. The finish is a little spicy but not too powerful. Wonderful beer!

Very much like a typical Tripel. All of the expected spiciness and more. The spices are a little overdone and it's just a tad too sweet for me. I'd like a little more bitterness.

Hoppy, citrussy, sweet aroma, fruity (tropical fruit), note of muscat grape/wine. Very fresh nose. Citrussy in flavor, sweet and tart, low bitterness.
Medium body, velvety texture, effervescent carbonation, finish quite dry and tart.

Ok, I admit it, I bought this for the cute bottle. As a shell collector, I couldn't resist!
A honey-straw color w/ a small white head. Floral, malty and wood tones. Has a bit of a tartness. The 8% is well masked in the nose & taste.
