A- very cloudy orangy golden yellow with white head. S-a great balance of yeast, citrus, and spices. T- the yeast, citrus, and spices blended very well together with a very sweet taste plus a nice bitter bite to it. The taste is balanced the whole time. P-smooth and clean with medium carbonation and light body. O- there is a subtle alcohol bite to it but its hard to tell it has such a high ABV. Serving type: on-tap Reviewed on: 04-08-2007 02:21:52

Wow- this one really surprised me! A great tripel! Really good balance of flavor and body. Alcohol VERY well hidden! Extremely drinkable... watch out! On tap at some Ale House in Farmingdale, Long Island.

Cask @Blue Point Cask Fest. This was a super first choice that exhibited golden malt tastes like tripel and saison while also having a cream taste, as previously noted. The brewers told me at Bobbique, after the fest, about the special mixes involved and I was very happy to have at least 2 glasses of this great ale.

This was a very different beer. Tasted like a strong witbier but was extremely enjoyable.

UPDATED: JUL 13, 2008 Had this on tap at the Burp Castle. Pours a thick pale gold with almost no head. Aroma has lots of spices and some hops. The coriander is noticable. The flavor isnít astounding, but it gets the job done. My favorite aspect of this beer is the mouth feel... itís a really creamy beer, but still very light and refreshing. That quality kind of reminds me of La Chouffe, but it has more of a honey-like character. Pretty good. Not usually my favorite style, but a nice and refreshing beer. Update: 7/13/08 Bought a bottle from Whole Foods... really nice aroma, full of lighter fruits, with a really nice and full body. Really an excellent beer for the price!

Bomber. Clear gold with a nice white head. Fruity sweet nose, tropical fruits and biscuit. Bready and fruity flavor, lightly spiced with coriander, a citrusy twang. A pretty darn good tripel, far better than expected!

500ml bomber bottle. Golden and glowing transparent orange color. Complex aroma of candi sugar, spices, with a touch of wheaty citrus. The taste is mellow and not overbearing like a great number of tripels. Yeasty, creamy finish with a mild hop balance. This is really an excellent Tripel.

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.

Had this at the May 8th Ortliebís fest, and Iím rating it here as #600, because this one impressed me a great deal. Weighing in at a nice 8.7% alcohol, this one pours canary, with aroma of malt, candi sugar, and hops. Tastes very malty, candi sugary, with a crisp, bitter, candi sugar finish. Nice complexity, and a great beer.

UPDATED: AUG 8, 2006 This is another example of why you shouldnít build a beer up with too much anticipation. I heard a lot about this beer and was really looking forward to it. Donít get me wrong, this is a very good beer but it didnít quite do everything for me that I was hoping for. I should say in its defense I am a bigger fan of Strong dark than the Strong Pale (personal preference). Appearance: Served a mostly golden yellow color, hazy but translucent. Smell: Yeasty. With a spicy Belgian yeast attribute that made me think of pepper and coriander but then it had a lemon wheat flavor in the nose as well. Taste: Zesty and spicy. Lemon peaches and bubblegum with cloves and all spice. What an odd combination of flavors but it works very well. The aftertaste is both sweet and astringent. Mouthfeel: Active and fluffy in the mouth. Very nice. Drinkability: I found this to be a refreshing beer. At 11% ABV it is not one to chug on a hot summer day but certainly a good one for sipping. Hope this is helpful. Cheers!
