Tasted in Toronto from LCBO. Tasted in Raftman Tulip glass. Slightly cloudy, golden appearance. Massive white head (as large as in the picture of the product on ratebeer). Laces the glass very well. Fruity nose, with a slightly floral bitter finish. Taste is more muted than the aroma. Very little sweetness or bitterness. relatively plain tasting and average.

nice head on this puppy: it was like a form-fitting insert of blonde foam rubber inside the glass. from that frenetically bubbly mass a slightly clouded raincoat yellow beer slowly permutated-- until only some big fish-eye bubbles remained, bobbing amongst the creamy edges. yeasty dry cider aroma, lumber, slightly sticky white wine oak casks. the clean smell of alcohol scrubbed grass. 7-up citrus flavor and nearly champagne carbonation; lemon cream pie without the sugar, dry lawn sod grass, fairly acidic, mild bitterness like sucking on a 16 penny nail. not bad, but it can claim little of the charming eloquence of a westmalle triple.

flutetokill (523) - Fresno, California, USA - NOV 14, 2003
Cloudy copper color with a nice white head. Sweet, musty, slightly spicy aroma. Flavor was a bit sweet, with a spicy hoppy bite in the aftertaste. Nice tingly palate.

loweredsixth (946) - Clovis, California, USA - NOV 14, 2003
Hazy light orange color with a large white head. The aroma was not very strong...some nice flowery hops, some spiciness...I swear I detect some eucalyptus in there. The flavor was similar to the aroma, but a bit stronger...no real detection of the alcohol. Decent feel...spritzy.

baobubba (455) - Starkville, Mississippi, USA - NOV 8, 2003
Sickly looking dark yellow-cloudy body with a tall white head.Citrussy malty aroma. Smells a bit of one of those lemon-lime sodas mixed with some caramel. Gets more a cidery and caramelly as it warms with hints of earth as well. Caramel comes on stronger in the tase. Starts sweet and quickly finishes slightly bitter with a skunky type aftertaste. Quite carbonated and maybe thin. Alcohol is slightly apparent in the taste. Not the best belgian I've had.

Volgon (2763) - Manchester, New Hampshire, USA - OCT 25, 2003
UPDATED: JAN 11, 2004 Hazy orange color with a large white head. Sweet musty earthy spicy apple aroma, fizzy sharp mouthfeel. Weak fruity taste. Gets better as it warms.

WISEGUY572 (1374) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 7, 2003
Actually, I thought that it had surprisingly little character for a Belgian triple. Cloudy orange, decent carbonation and decent head ... looked just fine. Less taste than I would have expected and less complexity ... some yeast, some bread, but none of the impact of a great Belgian triple or even of an Allagash.

hotstuff (4397) - Indiana, USA - SEP 10, 2003
A beer with a lot of character.It poured a medium sized white creamy, frothy head that consisted of fine-medium sized bubbles that quickly dissipated.The body was dense and uncarbonated.The hue of this beer was pale yellow.The nose was fruity and it had a fruity, sweet, tart, tangy and sour taste to it.The mouthfeel was tingly, smooth and medium bodied.The lacing with this beer was very sparse.

thedm (5069) - Fort Wayne, USA - SEP 9, 2003
This brew poured a very large head of foamy finely sized white mostly lasting bubbles that left behind a minimal lacing and a hazy yellow colored body with yeast freely floating in it. The aroma is fairly complex with notes of fruit and flowers in it. The mouthfeel is smooth thinck and finishes tingly with a lingering coriander/cloven taste. The flavor changes as time goes on. Initially is tastes like bread and a bit on the thick side, then it changes into amore of a corander/clove flavor as the finish in the mouthfeel takes over. Very interesting brew thia one is.

Good. Your typical belgian ale. I think it might be one of the lower ABV ones I've had.
