Smooth and light for a powerful beer; enjoy with variety of foods and appetizers; not too sweet; a good competitor with the real belgian blondes

Pours golden with some head and lace. Hoppy, floral aroma. Bubbly citrus flavors. Good tripel. Another surprise from New Belgium.

I still like this one, but it just seems like it had to have changed. Too sugary, less fruit, and simply not as compex. The last 2 6’ers I’ve bought, while good, are just not worthy of my original rate.
I just love this one. Since I can’t afford the Chimay Tripel on a regular basis, this is a good (and FRESH) sub. Little less sugary than the Chimay; a good thing.

Yeasty, doughy, somewhat milky aroma. Golden brew, poofy head, decent label, light sediment. Good Belgian character, a little musty, dryish (moderate sweetness,) lightly bitter. Very good mouthfeel and trailing bitterness. Well done.

Big floral aroma with large pepper hints. A little bit of banana and grapefruit make their way into the beer's flavor profile. A real treat, to say the least.

Beautiful blond color with large white head. Earthy, yeast and citrus aromas. Awesome balance of yeast, fruit and spice flavors. Couldn't get enough of this one.
