imdownthepub (10741) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - APR 6, 2004
Pale yellow straw colour with huge white head. This is a bitter yet fruity citric beer, with a sharp intensity. Plenty of nasal alcohol available. Long bitter chalky finish.

jde123 (765) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - MAR 22, 2004
I was kind of disappointed by this beer, other Belgian ales have impressed me much more. This lacked that particular ambience that makes Belgian ales so great. I think this bottle may have been a little long on the shelf.

piscator34 (2005) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - MAR 11, 2004
Light gold in colour. Smells of lemon, orange and yeast. A huge head! The citrus flavors continue with elments of minerals, and butter mixed in. It's warming, but has no distinct alcohol flavor.

stubby (334) - Santee, California, USA - FEB 23, 2004
Aroma of dried fruit. Looks like pineapple juice. Slightly tart triple. Me like.

diabel (1609) - Aarschot, BELGIUM - FEB 21, 2004
UPDATED: MAY 14, 2006 Bottle, BBE 17/8/2008 Sparkling, blond body. Frothy, white head, which is fairly lacing and mostly lasting. Hoppy (citrus) aroma. Spicy and hoppy flavour. Bitter, sweet initial flavour, quite dominated by the alcoholic flavours. Bitter-sweet finish, alcoholic mouthfeel.

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 (4917) - 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.

3.6
   AROMA 8/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 7/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 15/20
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.
