Pedro_Tallieu (57) - Deinze, BELGIUM - JUN 18, 2011
33 cl bottle. Golden yellow body with a big white head that stays pretty long. Almost no aroma in this beer. Just a little touch of alcohol an slightly floral aroma. Bitter taste. Not that great.

Koelschtrinker (15557) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - JUN 11, 2011
Eigentlich ist schon alles beschrioeben und ich kann es nur bestätigen: Sowohl den beschriebenen fruchtigen, hefigen Geschmack, als auch den kratzigen Nachall. Positiv fällt zudem aus, das der hohe Alkoholgehalt im Geschmack kaum zu bemerken ist, wodurch das Ganze noch als recht süffig eingestuft werden kann. Test vom 15.9.2005, Gebinde: Glasflasche Noten: 10,8,9,6,13,9 - 8,70

LeopoldT (90) - Lazarevac, SERBIA - JUN 11, 2011
Amber colour,cloudy with medium, not so strong head. Frutiness on the nose, caramel and bread. Heavy bodied with sweet and fruity caracter, and sensable alcohol. Sweet and little bit dry finish

erickok (4913) - Leuven, BELGIUM - MAY 9, 2011
Nearly clear goden body with small head. Aroma has apple, spruce, sugar and butterscotch. Definitely an acidic tone to the flavour although that mellows out in the aftertaste. Alcohol is there throughout. Not the most easy or delicate Belgian ale but it has an interesting sourness that justifies this beer. (33cl bottle, 2,00 EUR)

SeanMacGC (334) - Dublin, IRELAND - APR 28, 2011
Bottle, 330ml. Pours golden, with luxuriant brilliant white head that fades to nothing, eventually. Quite aromatic on the nose, of sweet hops and mild citrus. Perfumed on the palate, almost double-IPA like with strong hop overtones, and the usual tripel undertones. Quite a pleasant tripel, if slightly unusual with it.

Plovmand (7457) - Helsinge, DENMARK - APR 12, 2011
Bottle. Pours clear golden with a medium white head. The aroma is yeast, sweet fruit, sugar, oranges and caramel. Highly carbonated. The flavour is sweet fruit, light spices, light coriander, mollasse, caramel and yeast.

BlackEyePA (573) - USA - JAN 26, 2011
Pretty nice beer. I can easily see that this beer is influenced by Delirium. The color is similar to tremens, orange-gold-amber. The palate is a little estery, alcohol left over but its kinda nice, goes with the spiciness. Aroma is bread, spice, figs, dates, orange, peaches, rum raisin. Appearance, is hazy with some sediment but overall nice beer.

Appearance: cloudy, dark golden with small, light head. Aroma is very fruity, sweet and a bit spicy. Medium sweetness and alcohol in the taste and aftertaste.
