trujahwarrior (509) - Monroe, Washington, USA - FEB 5, 2013
12 oz bottle Pours a dark golden color with a medium fizzy head that faded quick and leaves spotty soapy like lacing. Smells of dough and Belgian yeast and spices. Tastes of Belgian yeast, dough, banana, apple and pear. Mouthfeel is surupy with good carbonation and a semi dry finish. Overall this has strange sour elements for a tripel which makes it different. Since I live close to Everett Iíve had it many times but prefer it on draft. I might revisit this after having it again on draft because it seemed to taste a little different from the bottle.

DrinkyCrow (99) - Washington, USA - APR 29, 2015
Bottle. A very basic tripel. On sale for cheap - good value, but not very interesting.

Prufrockstar (1528) - Seattle, Washington, USA - APR 25, 2015
Bottle. Pale pour, white head. Good retention. Grain, Belgian yeast esters, lightly sweet, lightly grainy, lightly bitter, lightly light, but also lightly heavy (in body, thickness).

DuffMan (8057) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - APR 13, 2015
Bottle. Medium golden body with an average white head. Sweet pale malts, spicy estery yeast. Nothing really wrong here, maybe a bit simple, but tripels are just not my favourite style.

smallfry (168) - - MAR 21, 2015
(Bottle) Decent, but pretty simple-tasting. Iíd be interested in comparing it to New Belgiumís tripel. For a tripel, itís not great, but for a cheap tripel, itís not bad at all.

btimc (1) - Washington, USA - MAR 5, 2015 does not count
UPDATED: MAR 31, 2015 Bought a 6 pack on a whim, was doubtful that an $8 six pack would be a satisfactory Belgian. I was pleasantly surprised. While not as complex as a top quality Belgian, it was very good. very good yeast flavor and aroma. For a bargain Belgium, I?d recommend it.

Ferris (8104) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 22, 2015
Draft - Belgian fruity esters, stone fruit and bubblegum. †Clear gold with a decent beige head. Sweet pale malts and fruity esters. Belgian yeast sweet finish. †Basic, but well done.

1pintatatime (116) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 24, 2014
Pours a light gold color. Thin, white head. Belgian aroma of cloves and cinnamon is present. Thereís also hints of bubblegum. This sweet bubblegum aroma leads into a sweeter taste than I expected. The Belgian spiciness is there, but itís subdued and somewhat underneath a smoother, sweeter (more honey than caramel), beer. Body is just a bit on the thin side. Good but not exactly a traditional Belgian. And if this is really 9% itís hiding its booze very well.

12 ounce bottle purchased at Total Wine Pembroke Pines, FL for $7.99/6-pack. Very good.
