pinto1993 (45) - Revere, Massachusetts, USA - FEB 17, 2012
750ml, corked and caged bottled poured into Tripel Karmeliet goblet. Appearance is golden yellow with 2 inch, white head that dissipates quickly and doesn’t leave behind much in the way of lacing. Smells of dried fruit, banana, and lemon with a hint of clove. Taste is fruity Belgian yeast with a hint of lemon and spice. Medium carbonation with a crisp mouth feel. Overall, this Belgian lacks complexity and depth of flavor. It’s almost a bit watered down and is certainly nothing memorable. This beer does not live up to its name.

Gription79 (2749) - Bountiful, Utah, USA - JAN 23, 2012
11.2 ounce bottle. Poured very cloudy with a huge everlasting head. Aroma of banana, floral, fruity, and some sweetness from the malts. The flavor was similar with the banana bring a little more dominating. A nice Belgian ale.

beerdad (397) - Kansas, USA - JAN 12, 2012
bottled pours cloudy pale yellow with a foamy offwhite head. aromas of spice, resin and rotting leaves. tastes sour with a touch of salt--almost like a tequla popper. finishes similarly, medium bodied beer almost fizzy with carbonation

onceblind (6378) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JAN 2, 2012
On tap @ Cheeky Monk Denver. Cloudy dark gold with a generous rocky head, great lacing. Kind of a yeasty dusty aroma with some grassy hop tones. Flavor was nice and clean but with a big flavor. Nice and mild on the hops, a little dusty, lots of clean Belgian yeast, some grainy cereal malts, some slight spicy tone as if rye was there

PorterPounder (6711) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - DEC 3, 2011
Tallahassee, Fl - New Leaf Market - 11.2 oz bottle. Pours a murky dark yellow with a delicate snow white head that leaves a nice filmy lacing. Lemony, grassy aroma - very fresh. Flavor has some spicy notes - saffron comes to mind. Lemon, yeast, a bit of raw cake dough. Mouthfeel has just the right amount of spritz. Pretty decent.

Flaske 0,33l delt med Rune på Bierbrasserie Cambrinus i Brugge 4 Mai 11. Gylden. Lavt skum. Ekstrem tyggegummiaroma. Smaken søt fruktig bitter. Gjennomført kunstig preg. Ikke god.

drowland (7362) - Georgia, USA - NOV 29, 2011
11/29/11. 11.2oz bottle... didn’t realize how often I was scrolling past this tick. Hazy orange pour with a slightly off-white head that is big, fluffy, and sticky, with plenty of lacing. The aroma is of light yeast character - slight banana and bubble gum - with fruity esters, candy sugar, and a touch of metal. Slightly sweet candy sugar flavor as well with lingering dry aspects. Reminds a but of a tripel. Could be worse.
