This is a nice light tiple. Appearance is nice as it pours a golden color with a large off white creamy head. Body has particulate matter due to bottle conditioning. Aroma is yeasty with hints of floral hops and malt. Flavor is sl. sweet initially, yeasty, some citrus with a nice and balanced dry finish. Not a bad beer.

HopsformyHips (113) - Memphis, Tennessee, USA - DEC 18, 2004
Creamy medium head with moderate lacing on a golden orange pour. Smells very nice and light. Not to heavy on anything, a little fruity, floral nose with a nice malty base. Smooth sweet at the intial with a hop kick at the end. Nothing too intense at any point. Well balanced. Effervescent palate but medium bodied. Alcohol well masked. Mild and relaxing brew. Not too contemplative.

I didnt like it...but dont let that dissuade you from trying it... mine was lumpy (yes that is right I said lumpy) I dont know if it is supposed to be lumpy not, but all the ones where i bought it were cottage cheesy and even up at rozi’s they were all chunky too!... Maybe it is supposed to be "textured" but not for me. put a warning on the label or something!

igel (196) - New Mexico, USA - DEC 1, 2004
Amber/orange color, transparent, light carbonation and an off-white head. Retention is low and lace is clingy. I miss judged my pour and got some large chunks whirling around. Aroma is tart and yeasty and grassy. Flavor is lightly sweet at the start with a dry slightly tart finish. Peppery attributes dominate the character of the taste. A tripel in the Westmalle tradition, but not as thick and intense. Mouthfeel is medium bodied and highly effervescent. Light hop bite. I fail to see any complexity of Pater, but it is an enjoyable version of a tripel.

obisbeer (565) - Barcelona, SPAIN - NOV 6, 2004
Golden brown w/small head. Funky barnyard, citrus, spice and vanilla nose. Med weight w/sour dry finish. Yeast toffee, spice, vanilla, wood, and honey on the palate. Strange triple!

ElGaucho (2275) - Minnetonka, Minnesota, USA - NOV 5, 2004
Rich caramel, Belgian-style aroma. Particalia evident. Smallish head but lasting. White to off-white head. Flavor is subtle, but nice. Fairly highly carbonated.

badgerben (4558) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - OCT 31, 2004
Cloudy amber color with a medium head. Sweet aroma. Malty taste with some banana, but a strong musty character that was a bit much off the deep end.

pivo (2618) - GERMANY - OCT 31, 2004
Yeasty lightly fruity nose (banana), gold color, sticky head. Nice creamy malt body full of vanilla flavors. Some citrus in the middle, not so bitter or spicy end. Thinish. Ok balance. Consistenly decent for this brewer, though not that special.

footbalm (1219) - Western Minneapolis Suburbs, Minnesota, USA - OCT 31, 2004
Golden orange brew somewhat cloudy and a nice layer of creamy head.Has a funky sweet yet acrid nose and a little fruity spice.But there was something about the aroma that bugged me,too musty.Flavor was a little like dirty underwear tea.The musk flavor here was a real turnoff.
