snoworsummer (4806) - baltimore, Maryland, USA - SEP 7, 2016
Draft at the brewery. Pours clear gold with a fizzy white head. Tastes like Belgian yeast, light herb, banana, lemon, and dry citrus hops. Light/medium body and low carbonation. Smells like belgian yeast, light herb, banana, lemon and dry citrus hops.

willisread (2543) - Tokyo, JAPAN - MAY 28, 2016
Tap at DC Kanda. Lots of booze in the nose along with nutmeg, peppery yeast notes and citrus hops. Good carbonation with a slightly sweet and peppery mouthfeel. Finish is warming. Not a bad tripel.

commonshawn (1064) - Minnesota, USA - MAR 4, 2016
Tap at Hawthorne hop house. Goblet. Mahogany with medium white head. Smells of tart dark fruit, Belgian style. Belgian yeast, dark fruit. Well handled alcohol. Totally my type of beer. Delicious.

UXO (1524) - CANADA - JAN 22, 2016
Appearance: clear pale amber with a thin ivory head, good retention and no lacing. (3/5) Aroma: complex, candi sugar, dry-ish tripel-like tropical fruit and Belgian yeast, floral, earthy. (8/10) Taste: moderate sweet, light tart, light bitter. (8/10) Palate: medium-light body, moderate-high carbonation, lightly boozy and tart finish. (4/5) Oh my… if this is indiscretion, I’m not sure why you’d want to be discreet. “I’d rather laugh with the sinners than cry with the saints,” indeed. Sweet, but not too much so, balanced with a lovely mild tartness and bitter, accented with floral and yeast. Layers of complexity continue to reveal as it warms, and make it difficult to accurately describe the bouquet. I was expecting (and bracing myself for) a barleywine-ish approach, but this is is a far more interesting prospect. (I can handle a good barleywine, but it’s not my favourite style, especially when it’s not done well.) The ABV is definitely present, but well integrated so that the overall experience is much milder than one might expect from double digits. Well worth looking for. (16/20)

jbarlow (6) - - JAN 8, 2016 does not count
Often strong Belgian style ales are too sweet for my taste, but this fantastic entry adds reasonable bitterness - 48 IBU, making for a delightfully balanced entry.

solidfunk (7701) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - OCT 26, 2015
Apricot and florals. Golden pour with good head and lacing. Sweet and sour finish. Good mix, easy drinking. My kind of blonde Belgian strong.

jsnicholas (524) - Woodinville, Washington, USA - JUL 18, 2015
Bottle (22oz ): Light golden with no real head. Belgian yeast aroma. Taste is sweet and somewhat fruity. Not much bitterness. Alcohol hits in the end, but easy drinking.

mikedR (1561) - Gilbert, Arizona, USA - MAY 25, 2015
Very sublime. Surprisingly easy drinking considering the ABV. Belgian yeast. Some dark fruits. Sorta quad lite, with a hint of trippel.

BuckeyeBoy (6145) - Boise, Idaho, USA - APR 27, 2015
22oz bottle pours out a hazy orangeish topped with a sand head. Nose is belg yeast spice candy sugar and some hops. Taste is more of the belg yeast spice banana clove and some sweetness.
