3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 oz bottle from Kegs & Barrels in Plano, TX. Pours a very nice looking murky gold with nice white head, leaves some nice lacing as well. Aroma of nice farmhouse, citrus and light candy sugar. Flavor is very much the same with a light maltiness and faint bitter at the end. Mouth feel is medium body and also has a somewhat creaminess to it, fizzy carbonation. Overall, a tasty brew!

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
A golden color beer with a nice head. The aroma was grainy, pepper, citrus, light fruits-almost like sniffing a sack of grains. The taste is the same and is a very light tasting tripel which is perfect for Texas.

On tap at the Gingerman, Austin TX. Yellow with minimal head. Spicy nose with some fruity hop aromas. Real tripel yeast profile and body, but a touch hot on the alcohol side. Pretty good tripel overall.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: MAY 25, 2010 A good tripel which reminds me a bit of Westmalle. As bitter and more tart. Tastes of sugared grapefruit rind. Dry, grassy, bitter on the palate. Refined. Best beer I’ve had in several months!

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Poured from bottle. Punchy nose of honey/syrup, cereal, and spice. Pours a lambent gold with a pronounced head and scattered lace. Flavor of dark/dried fruit, sweetness, and a pronounced toasty malt, with a ricochet of hops bitterness on the close -- just enough to cut the sweetness. Palate is rich without being cloying. Real Ale has done it again.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
[Tap] Pours a golden color with a small amount of white head. Aroma of yeast, sweet malts and typical Belgian spices. Taste is a little rough around the edges. Plenty of apple and pear notes in here, but the spice is somewhat lacking. A citrus finish. Sweet and alcoholic, but the mouthfeel was a bit thin for a proper balance. Seems like the light alcohol burn is the main theme of this beer. It could use some time to mellow out into a better Belgian.

On tap. Really nice up front, but the aftertaste is so horribly harsh. Ouch.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap. Pours with a fluffy white head over a near clear golden body. Aroma of candi sugar, pear, must, dry breadiness, and some lively spices. Very nice and to style. Taste is Candi sugar, pear, apple brandy, alcohol and must. Some pastry notes. Finishes dry residual sugars and a few fruity esters on the finishes. Dry, alcoholic finish. Really well done.
