KajII (799) - Macon, North Carolina, USA - JUN 2, 2011
Bottle. Poured a medium yellowish-amber almost strawlike in color with a large bellowing creamy white head that was mostly lasting and had excellent lacing. The aroma was strong of caramel malts, flowery hops and an earthy yeast with notes of banana, pears and a mild alcohol tinge. It tasted lightly sweet with hints of banana and pears at first then became slightly bitter with a strong yeast presence and a slight warming sensation after the swallow. Mouthfeel was light to medium in body and extremely creamy in texture with a very soft carbonation. Overall a mild tasting belgian ale that is very appealing and quite easy to drink, considering the high alcohol content that you never taste.

CObiased (153) - Bayfield, Colorado, USA - SEP 25, 2015
Pours a slightly cloudy golden orange with a very minimal head. Not much aroma but does have some light caramel malt, a hint of banana and biscuit. Tastes more like a malty hefeweizen. Not bad but missing some depth.

Bottle. A very basic tripel. On sale for cheap - good value, but not very interesting.

DuffMan (8318) - 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.

(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.

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 (119) - 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.
