sayravai (4673) - Helsinki, FINLAND - FEB 20, 2004
Hazy golden color, big, foamy head. Mild, buttery aroma. Sour, flowery flavor. Malty, with no hops to speak of. Sour, carbonated palate. Not bad, but not my style.

Boutip (4868) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 6, 2004
Poured a pale yellowish brew with a nice head with good retention. Good carbonation with hoppy aroma. Taste is sweet with subtle alcohol. Overall, this is a good beer but not as good as the Westmalle Triple or Fin du Monde.

Eyedrinkale (3213) - Astoria, New York, USA - JAN 21, 2004
UPDATED: APR 16, 2006 Pale and sweet malts with some citrus in the aroma. Taste is sweet not too cloying. Flavor of apricots and peaches. Not the same big head thats in the picture, but highly carbonated.

Sanchex (224) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 13, 2004
Marshmallowy head. Sweet fruity aroma. Deep yellow and cloudy in appearance. Floral hoppy flavour with bitter aftertaste. Not as spicy as I expected, only mild herb undertones. Pleasant surprise.

BroueNeault (158) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 9, 2004
A huge and creamy head floats overs that cloudy yellow beer. Aroma of banana and honey. Taste is fruity and somewhat sweet and yeasty. Some hoppy bitterness comes in conclusion. A pleasant beer.

BeerLimey (2154) - California, USA - DEC 28, 2003
Pale clouded amber appearance, moderate head formation. Sweet and spicy, sage, fruit and bready aroma. Initial spiciness turns turns to a light orangey middle with dry herbs (parsley, sage?) coming in towards the finish. Stays sweet and agreeable on the palate with very little bitterness.

mds (2240) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 23, 2003
Pale golden, big fluffy white head. Thick white lace. A rather sweet aroma, some hints of yeast. strong yeast flavour, slightly hoppy. Quite nice.

skortila (4631) - Baarn, NETHERLANDS - DEC 8, 2003
Floral and fruity, sweet nose. More a blond/lente bock style. Pale golden coloured, with a nice lacing. Taste is sweet and fruity, some spices/herbs. Quite bitter and more hops in the end. Nice brew.

wnp22 (685) - Toronto (Roncesvalles Village), Ontario, CANADA - DEC 7, 2003
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.

krisbierjaeger (844) - dolores, Colorado, USA - NOV 29, 2003
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.
