Pours a hazy dark golden color with a large, frothy white head. Aroma is of Belgian yeast, some fruit and some alcohol. Fair taste, kind of bland, some yeast, dark fruit, alcohol, citrus. Something is off.

jgb9348 (5010) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - JAN 20, 2012
Deep hazy golden coloured body with a honey glow and a thin off-white head. Aroma of yeast, honey, flowers and a touch of sweetness - very strong. Medium to Full-bodied; Strong yeastie flavour with some wheat, coriander seed, curacao and a thick malty flavour all noticeable with some apricots and apples dancing on the finish and a little complexity at the tail end. Overall, a nice tripel with a lot of sweetness, some pungent flavours and good complexity. I sampled this 65 cL bottle purchased from Total Wine in Alexandria, Virginia camping at Shenandoah National Park in Virginia.

julieimagery (182) - Coconut creek, Florida, USA - JAN 20, 2012
UPDATED: APR 28, 2012 The color looks like orange juice. Very orange and bright - almost radioactive. The smell isn’t too pleasant and the palate is very tart and bitter. It has prominent hops flavors throughout sips but mostly it tastes like citrus and orange. I like it better than the Unibroue Don de Dieu.nuts,

Bottle. Pours hazy orange with a large, off-white head. Aroma of yeast, light fruit and spices. Flavor is light and similar to the aroma. Unremarkable but drinkable.

boxofrane (2342) - Spring City, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 4, 2011
Bottle. Pours orange with a small white head and minimal lacing. Smells mostly of yeast, slight fruit notes. Taste is pretty bland. You can tell this is a belgian style ale but there is not much special about it. Probably better choices for the price.

Strykzone (5383) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - NOV 27, 2011
Bomber from Hayduke. This pours hazy and is a dingy golden. A white head begins fizzy and active but then settles into a melted marshmallow foam. The aroma is yeast and sugar with some fruit. Big malt and yeast is tasted. Alcohol is not noted in the start. I taste banana and clove esters. Fruit is complex and is nice. I suspect the ABV is over stated as it is not tasted and not really felt. This is fruity, yeasty and malty and is quite tasty.

Flavors of straw, peach, pear, light pineapple and a hint of spice with a smooth lingering fruity finish.

adnielsen (10028) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - NOV 21, 2011
Bottle @ ratman’s house, courtesy of foppa78. Moderately cloudy, orange appearance with a creamy, off white head. Yeasty, orange citrusy, a touch bready aroma. A touch tangy, lemon-orange citrusy, bready, belgian yeasty glacier with a little bit of odd bitterness on the finish.

jebert (500) - Watertown, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 20, 2011
Pours a cloudy peachy gold with no head. Very creamy on the palate, the taste is sweet with hints of honey, ginger and cloves. Sweet on the finish too with just a vapor of hops to allow for drier, not too sweet finish. A nice effort-worth trying. Can be paired with white cheeses, crackers and fruit.
