3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Clear golden body with a large frothy white head. The head lasted the distance and left good lacing all the way down the glass. The aroma was of spice , alcohol and cinnamon. Taste was sweet, buttery/oily, light pepper, spices again and the alcohol is certainly present and warming but not offensive.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Sweet iron and hop nose. Small head and low carbonation for a Belgian ale. Sweet, full bodied, spicy, and fruity. The finish is long and alcoholic and full of sweetness. Good, but this beer is too sweet for my palate.

Poured a medium orange color with a huge head. Aromas of spices, alcohol and oranges. Spicy, orange, alcohol (just like it smells) taste. Moderate alcohol aftertaste (but bearable). Sweet with a bitter bite to it.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Massive, thick, foamy white head. Clear golden body with moderate carbonation. Thick cottony lacing. Classic citrus and banana nose of a tripel plus some spice, yeasty aroma and a vague leathery quality. Flavor is very distinct with elements of leather, fruit peels, more spice, and prominent alcohol. This is a big beer and I enjoyed it considerably.

10.5%? Wow! I had no idea. The aroma was like walking through an apple orchard. The medium white head was supported by a light yellow body. It tasted appley with a beer influence.
