Bottled. Hazy orange colour, foamy white head. Aroma is hops, caramel and sweet malts. Flavour is fruitish hoppy with slight hints of caramel and grass. Pleasant palate, even though it’s quite carbonated.

GABF 2006. Clear blonde color, tight white head. Aroma - slight DMS, not much else. Flavor - typical tripel flavors are prominent, but more smooth than expected. Not as pleasing overall. Not a great beer. DMS detracts; otherwise decent.

(Stockholm Beer Festival 2006) Orange/golden, white head. Hoppy, citric aroma with banana notes. Hops and banana mixed in flavor, sweeter fruits and a bit earthy. Stronger bitter notes in the finish.

tap at the brewpub - Things started looking up at RR when I got to this ale. Pours up golden with a nice head. The aroma is fairly light with some malt and flowery notes. The flavor is actually not as sweet as I expected, but has the malt and candi sugar, along with some mild citrus and spice notes. There’s a touch of alcohol in the finish.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours an enticing golden-yellow in the glass; short white head with good lacing. Shows a slight amount of lemon and banana in the nose; some spice. Pleasant up-front carbonation, Champagne-like bubbles, pepper, plenty of spice, honey and some banana - but spices are most prominent, approaching the profile of a tripel. Medium finish, ending peppery.

A fantastic replica of a strong belgium amber ale. i love this beer. its only drawback is its light body and its abrupt end. a great but subtle taste of citrus

Bottle. Thanks to realale420. Pours a heady golden color. Lots of lingering frothy goodness. Aroma is sweet, earthy, flowery and spicy. Flavor is very much the same with notes of banana clove and some spice followed by bready malts. A real nice balance to this beer. Not my favorite style, but a damn good example.
