Clear golden color. Grainy, lightly yeasty aroma. Sweet yeasty flavor, medium bodied, easy drinking, touch of hop and bite in the finish.

TheAlum (6193) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - MAY 25, 2011
Draft on tap at Haymarket’s Pizza Port Event (Chicago, IL). Pours a nice golden glowing hue, touch of haze, frothy offwhite ringed head dies. Aromas are fruity apples, pears, and some lemons, bready malts. Touches of esters, sweeter honey works in. Initial is very sweet, honey and apples, pears, vanilla, touches of light grass. Into the middle sweet breads, malty grains, honey, and mellow fruits. Finish preaches sweet fruits, touches of lingering spicy yeasts. Very sweet Belgian that just doesn’t work for me. Lacks balance, complexity, and a bunch of stuff.

On tap at Downtown Johnny Browns some time ago. A nicely crafted BSA. Spicey, clove, with some bread dough. Very nice. Well crafted.

joeneugs (4115) - Livermore, California, USA - APR 21, 2011
On tap at PP Carlsbad. It pours golden with a lasting white head. The aroma is sweet and spicy with lots of ripe banana, vanilla, a little clove and yeast in the finish. The sweetness reminds me a bit of vanilla ice cream. Overall, very sweet and spicy but tasty.

brokensail (12886) - Orange County, California, USA - APR 19, 2011
A: The pour is a pale yellow color with a large white head on top. S: Very heavy on the esters and phenols. Banana, white pepper, and clove are prominent aromas. There is a touch of straw and grass. Pale cracker malts and yeast are also present. T: The flavors are much the same. Mildly sweet with some cracker malts and bread. Pepper, grass, banana, and spices are there along with some yeast. A light fruitiness comes out as it warms up a bit. M: Surprisingly light in body with a fairly high level of carbonation. O: Not one of my favorites. Too phenolic and not much sweetness at all.

Lagunitasfan (1321) - San Diego, California, USA - JAN 13, 2011
On tap at Stone 1/11/11. Yum yum yum, gimme some! Light golden amber in the glass, with the slightest haze. Thiught it was a bit light in color for Belgian strong. Taste is lovely. Lots of bright citrus and subtle spice. Not overpowering in any sense. Well balanced, sharp and clean. Yummy.

dukefan (214) - Dallas, Texas, USA - SEP 14, 2010
One of the best Belgian Trippels I have ever tasted. Citrus, sugar and coriander all present but blended perfectly together.

JoeMcPhee (8962) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 28, 2010
Tap at Pizza Port Carlsbad. Very pale, perfectly clear golden pour. The nose has a bit of spiciness and fruitiness compared to the attenuation. Slightly honeyed sweetness on the nose along with a touch of grassiness. Softly sweet through the middle and a lightly earthy finish. Nicely balanced if, again, a little bit simple.
