3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: OCT 10, 2013 Looks perfect in the glass! Slightly hazy golden body with a large, creamy, white, long-lived head that laces my chalice excellently. Strong and delicious aroma with Belgian yeast, lots of fruits (including banana, and I actually get distinct notes of peach), spices and citric hints. The taste is light to moderate sweet with a moderate bitter finish. Unfortunately I find the finish a bit too alcoholic. The flavours are quite strong: fruits, spices, honey, alcohol with banana and vanilla in the back. It feels oily and medium bodied on the palate, with a moderate dryness in the aftertaste. A very good beer, but a bit too much alcohol.

Nice cloudy straw color with robust foamy white head. Subdued aroma due to big pillowy head. Flavors of tropical fruit. Medium body anf mouthfeel. Surprisingly light and fruity with well hidden alcohol.

Iets troebele licht gele kleur. Veel schuim. Tripel geur en iets fruitig en citrus. Smaakt een beetje muf en flauw met een zware nasmaak.

The beer has a nice floral and fruit smell. It is golden yellow in color and has a nice frothy head when poured from a bottle into a tulip glass. The aroma gets a bit overpowered when drinking by the taste of the alcohol.

Blonde clair, magnifique col persistent, très effervescente. Odeur de malt et d’alcool. En bouche, le malt et l’alcool dominent, un peu sucrée, pétillante, légère amertume.

When I smelled this, the first thing I thought of was the old fashion candy, Orange Slice Wedges - orange gummy bear-like slices coved in sugar crystals :-) The aroma is hop forward - floral, citrus, ??? Pours a cloudy golden orange with a thin, but mostly lasting, ivory head and quickly disapearing lacing. The taste is lightly sweeet up front followed by a nice bitter peppery finish. Orange, Belgian yeast, pepper, candy flavors are present. Medium body and carbonation. Overall, this was a nicely balanced beer - sweetness to bitterness. I liked it and will drink it again.

Pours a golden beer with a good white head. Smells sweet and pretty standard. Tastes sweet and alcoholic. Lively carbo, medium body and a sticky texture.
