A hazy amber beer with a light orange head. The aroma is sweet with primary notes of caramel, but also hints of yeast. The flavor is also sweet with notes of caramel, but in the flavor the yeast is clearly noticable.

Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JUL 10, 2005
(Bottle 33 cl) Pale, hazy, golden beer with a decently sized, creamy head. Sweetish malt in the beginning but then you get to feel the hops - and this is one hoppy beer. Some yeasty, earthy notes. Decent ale if not exactly spectacular. 040399

Hazy gold beer with a good white head. Light dry palate. Smooth and strong pale malt. A little brandy alcohol underneath. Frothy malt cream and mild tripel like fruits. Slightly warming finish. Unsubtle but hard not to like!

fiulijn (18584) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 4, 2003
Cloudy orange color; giant creamy head. Dry, Tripel aroma; pine needels. Well structured, quite malty, some cork; strongly bitter, far over the average. Traditional, good one; my favorite by Van Eecke.

TBone (15940) - Pori, FINLAND - JAN 2, 2008
Bottled (BB 08/2009)
Hazy orange color with small steady white head. Honey, mango and some papery hops in reasonably strong nose. After this kind of aroma, beer is drier than expected. Packed with alcohol and some fruityness and spiceyness. Alcohol is warming, but not dominating. Dry finish with papery notes (hops?). A bit too simple palate, although it is decent brew (tripel I would say).
