3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Lemon yellow cloudy body with some specks. Big fat white head with some moderate lace. Orange and lemon aromas are the predominant factors on the nose. This beer sets a discernably musty tone. Lemon and pepper flavors with a bitter snap followed by a gumb numbing finish. As the beer moves toward room temperature it develops an interesting creamy mouthfeel.

Clear gold with large creamy white head. Fragrant luscious complex cirtus and tropical fruits, liquorice, malt and grassy hops aromas. Medium body and palate, doughy yeast and tangy (sour?) yeasty start, lighter sweeter middle and dry refreshing finish. Well done brewers!

This beer poured a nice golden color and formed an amazing white head which left some nice lace. Heavy, lovely amount of carbonation common to this style(level similar to a champagne. It had a citrus aroma with a slight element of hops. The taste was of hops and citrus. The finish was a bit foamy and slightly tart. Nice beer.

I am not usually a fan of triples, but this one really surprised me. Yeasty, grainy aroma, with a hint of fruit. It was a full bodied brew, with a crisp, dry, palate with a hint of apples. It finished dry and long. This is the first triple I would drink again, a terrific beer!

Citrus, yeast and alcohol greet the nose. Amber colour, fluffy head. Bitter with golden raisins taste. Very breadish. Has the high carb/alcohol zing of a triple. Complex, quite good.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
There is a grassy aroma with a suggestion of hay. The mouthfeel is light to medium. I noticed a rather strong lemongrassy aftertaste. The beer was not as complex as I would have liked. Not signicantly hoppy or alcoholic to taste.

This is the first Belgian that I’ve had so I can’t really compare it to others. However, I did like this a lot. Very good taste with quite a bit of flavor to hide the alcohol. Like the description says, it is very complex yet clean. Very noticable malt with a smooth slightly fruity finish.
