3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Hazy golden-bronze color with a nice white head. Fruity, grassy aroma with some dull malt. Herbal, banana, yeasty, fruity flavor (lemon and apricot). Complex. Flavor lingers in the back of the mouth and finishes dry. There’s a nice flowery/herbal quality to it.

3.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
A very tasty belgian ale. As a frequently note in my beers, the crazy thick sweetness of some belgians turns me off, but this one works well. Call me picky. Regardless, I have no complaints about this beer. Actually suprised this isnt higher rated, but i guess a mellow belgian beer doesnt get much attention.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
750ml bottle. Sweet, flowery aroma, some honey and doughy yeast apparent, along with lighter touches of perfume, leafy, herbal hop, peach, white grape and light, grainy malts. Deep golden amber color, clear, with a lasting, frothy white head and strands of lacing coating the glass. Flavor profile is rather mellow for a beer of this strength, sweet and lightly fruity to start, some light citrus noted, thereafter seeing an influx of spicy hop flavor and bitterness that carries through to the finish, which also features some light, peppery alcohol notes, gentle acidity and dusty yeast. Mouthfeel is smooth, warming and light, body is medium-full. Enjoyable.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Hazy gold/light bronze. Creamy, off white head. Nice lacing. Aroma- sunscreen, rich malt, spices, sugar, floral hops. Lost points for the sunscreen. Flavor is a balance of sweet/spicy/sour. Rich malt, crisp floral hops, spices, yeast, alcohol. Finish and aftertaste are dry, alcoholic, yeasty. Full/medium, balanced body. Very nice, a bit unorthodox tripel.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Slighty spicy..very grassy aroma. Has hints of lemon zest. Cloudy yellow/gold color with a lovely white head that is exceptionally creamy looking like a lemon meringue. Fore is yeasty, creamy and malty. Tastes a bit like a white cake with heavy cream added and a tad of vanilla extract. But sadly other than a vaguley banana tinged note there isn’t very much int he way of other flavors and it just comes off as a a really good, but highly one dimensional offering.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle provided by and shared with tpkenned. Semi-translucent, opulent and magnifying yellow with yeasties swimming about. Creamy, fuzzy white head, beautiful vellum lace and an icy recession to wrap up the appearance portion. Curt, husky aroma. Evident pils malt, coriander, tin cans, sweet candied maize, ragweed and wet dog. Calming lemon rind flavor joins coriander and pollen. Straight forward starchy muskiness. Lemon-herbed baguettes transition to vanilla and crystallized sugar over Lemonheads. Not much effervescence, and generally a quick moving stream that loses steam near the end. Well disguised alcohol, finishing with pepper, poppyseeds and limeade. An honorable triple.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Hoppy, creamy peppery aroma. Malty, but not too sweet. Full bodied. Creamy, peppery flavor with hints of cardemom and anis. Throughout a hoppiness that becomes almost oily in the aftertaste. A worthy beer to close the year 2005.
