The smell is pleasant. The head tastes of apples and the first taste of the beer itself is immediately crisp and apple-filled. The body of the flavor recalls alcoholic ciders, with a touch of bitterness. Not too much aftertaste, but overall a great beer.

Pours a fairly clean and soft golden amber with one finger of off white head. Nose is not so good. Tons of apple juice (all apple juice) with some raw bread dough/yeast and stone fruit. Flavor is gross, real gross. Apple juice and raw bread dough. Eww. Medium full body.

The alcohol may catch some off guard but my wife’s clothes aren’t falling off without an auxiliary shot of tequila. Quite complex, with coriander and other spices, yeast, citrus and other fruits, and more. Not a traditional tripel but that’s no bad thing.

Pours dark for style, an amber orange (not the usual yellow-orange). Aroma is orange, bubblegum, spice. Taste is sweeter than expected, but well balanced with spice, pepper, coriander, orange peel, apple cinnamon, apricot. Quite nice overall. Very drinkable for the abv; would sessionable even, if it were cheaper.

Tap. Dark golden pour with a lot of head. Honey, coriander, orange peel, pepper. Sweet and fruity. Hides alcohol well and makes it a dessert drink even for a non-beer drinker

Poured from big bottle. Aroma is citrus, spice, syrup and white bread. Cloudy dark gold with minimal head. I taste brown sugar, orange peel, citrus, coriander, pepper, cinnamon, yeast, malt. Lots of different flavors which work quite well together. Good drinkability, and alcohol is not noticed. Nicely done, enjoyable beer.

"i dug this one, though 11.99 was a bit extreme. spiced like a wit but with the spiciness and already-there fruitiness of a nice tripel. holds up well. very fruity and very tasty. nice change."

New Beer Distributors, NYC 650ml ($8.75): Pours orange with a not very large head. Aroma is orange, spice, bubblegum, and no alcohol to speak of. Taste is sweet. Alcohol is well covered. Plenty of citrus. Mouthfeel is nice. Light aftertaste. I can see why it got its nickname.
