First pour, nothin but head, a glass full of foam. Second pour, 1 inch of beer, 4 inches of foam. I was finally able to get most of the beer into the glass on third pour. Golden color, ridiculously big sticky white head. Spicy, citrus, peppery pear, alcoho, wood and flowery hops. Thank you Todd.

aroma of bread yeast and peach. light yellow color. lots of complex flavors. yeasty dough and fruit-especially ripe banana. as it warms there is a stronger taste of citrus (lemony), green apple and as it gets warmer still, an alcohol taste is noted.

Full foamy white head with a honey golden liquid beneath. Nice aroma of fruity malts and evident alcohol. Taste is of alcohol and hops with a tad of sour bitters in a bad way. Texture is nice and fluid on the watery side. Alcohol content is evident.

Hazy pale gold w/ large frothy head. Mildly sour nose w/ vinous character & some citrus, cloves, & spice. Good carbonation, though slightly syrupy feel. Smooth flavour w/ yeast, banana, & cloves. Finish is nicely bitter w/ a warm alcohol tingle.

Golden colour, white, good head. Nose made up by pale malts, grain, chaff. Very dry impression, alcohol, slightly perfumed and peppery. There is a slight sweetness underlying. Aftertaste is sweet. A good triple - but I estimate the old name, Cuvée St. Amand, was more colourful.

I was impressed with this beer, period. Malty, light bodied, effervecent, smooth finish. Restrained belgian character. The malt really stands out in this beer. Now, it was oxidized, but what imported beer isn't oxidized. Very well balanced. Wow, I like this beer.
