22 oz. bottle courtesy of hopdog. Pours a clear golden color much like apple juice with a small disappearing white head. The aroma is light orange citrus, slightly tart, pale malt, slightly spicy, and a touch sweet. The flavor is much of the same; orange citrus, spicy, pale malt, with a smooth but dry finish. Medium bodied with low carbonation. Decent.

Bottle. Poured translucent almost pink gold with thin white head that eventually subsided into nothing more than a steady stream of bubbles. This one I aged so its a little different from the first bottle I drank. Aroma was woody, slightly sour, apple, slightly peachy, and very sweet overall. The flavor was apple, vinous, slightly spicy, candi sugar and bordering on sour which wasn’t present in the first fresh bottle, I assume it came from cellaring it. This one is much more vinous and carbonated than I recall. The palate is spicy and carbonated and never ceases to bite on the tongue. I would certainly session with this beer although I do prefer it fresher since it has a much sweeter floral character initially.

Glouglouburp (6004) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 22, 2009
In short: An simple but easy drinking Belgian Blonde Ale. Nothing fancy, not much of a triple but very drinkable.
How: Bottle 22oz, drank 2 months after purchase
The look: Clear golden-blonde body topped by a medium white head
In long: The shy nose gets a strong meringue character when I shake the beer. Taste is simple, very basic, but also very drinkable. Honeyed cereals, lemon pie and semi-fresh grassy hops. Medium dryness and very mild bitterness. Fruity notes are limited to some pineapples and bananas. If you expect a classic style Triple you’re in for a big disappointment, this is almost a session beer, kind of a big Belgian-ish Pilsner. Enjoyable in the simplicity of its drinkable nature. Legacy Satisfaction Tripel.

WeeHeavySD (3360) - San Diego (Hillcrest), Oregon, USA - JAN 15, 2009
Bomber bonus from Goldtwins. Thanks larry. Pours orange golden with a bright white head. Paired with dinner of vegan mac and cheese and texas caviar. The nose is nice with a slight lemon peel and spicyness to it. Taste is extremely spicy far more than most trips, and it ain’t bad. The mouth feel is a bit too bubbly and the aftertaste isn’t the best. Overall Its got its ups and its downs.

guzzler67 (1494) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - JAN 11, 2009
Clear golden appearance with a small white head. Spicy, yeasty aroma with notes of ripe fruit. Sweet, spicy, herbal flavors that turn a little leathery in the lingering aftertaste. Medium bodied mouthfeel with a nice kick from the abv at the finish.

Cletus (6354) - Connecticut, USA - DEC 31, 2008
Pours a brilliant clear gold with a generous white head. Smells of dry malt, sage, wildflowers, a touch of spice, citrus. Tastes dry and peppery with a nice perfumy presence on the finish. Great beer.

kramer (4905) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 24, 2008
22 oz bottle. Pours a clear gold body with a small fizzy white head that faded to a thin ring rather quickly. Spicy nose with pale malts, honey, a bit of a Avon perfume like note, citrus fruits, and a touch of alcohol. The taste is much more focused on the spicing used and not what I prefer it to be on, the yeast. A very basic pale malt base of high strength with a whole bunch of spices tossed in. The yeast derived flavor, if there is any to start with, is completely covered with citrus and perfumy tastes. Mouthfeel is on the thick and slightly syrupy side with moderate fizzy prickly carbonation. Too heavy for me. This just was not good all around. The more and more of it I had, the more it kept tasting like I was drinking perfume.

branspra (293) - Arlington, Virginia, USA - DEC 13, 2008
Bottle. Pours a orange color with a small, white head. Aromas of orange and honey. Texture is creamy start, oily finish and sticky afterwards. Flavor of blueberry in addition to the aromas and very smooth. Very good beer.

malrubius (1684) - Springfield, Vermont, USA - DEC 7, 2008
Spring seasonal on tap and on the *new* beer menu at the start of Winter at Croxley Rockville Centre. Can you say deep distributor discounts? Still not bad. Golden with lasting head and lace. Mild spicy sweet aroma. Sugary sweet with enough spicy hoppy yeastiness and a touch of citrus tartness to make it interestng. Medium body and carbo. Pretty good for an American interpretation.
