Dark gold in colour with high carbonation. Aromas are of light and slightly sweet malt, black pepper, and touches of grassy hops and banana. The flavors are somewhat fruity (a bit more banana and apricot) and sweet, but are balanced out by some spicy yeast notes. A bit of alcohol warming, but nothing over the top in that regard. No surprises, but this is a well made, balanced tripel.

Pours honey-gold with a huge head that keeps growing long after you stop pouring. Aroma of hay, grass, bread, and yeast. Some alcohol and pepper. Very mellow flavorl. Yeasty and spicy, with a light hop aftertaste and a little alcohol warming.

Bottle. Aroma seems a little oxidized. Nicely bready flavour, not very peppery. Slightly swelling mouthfeel. Finish is a little dry.

Radek Kliber (6378) - Toronto (Can) Krotoszyn (Pol), POLAND - NOV 11, 2005
Pours hazy citric gold brown ale. Large frothy head. Refreshing, yeasty aroma, with such potency yet soft and gentle. Meadow flower. Yeast, clean smooth body, hints of spice, just shade of alcohol in background. Drinkabitiy is superb. I am not sure how they have done it but they did it. Silky smooth Belgian ale, seamless blend of flavour. Very clean work I must repeat. Highly recommended.

Hazy golden honey hue, with a white head, yeasty, fruity, candied oranges, bready, sweet pale malt, with a honeyish accent in the nose, follows through on a medium-bodied palate with a fruity, yeasty note, with a honey touch, mouthfell, an a peachy fruitiness, with an alcoholic warmth, leading towards a sweet candied citrus fruits in a dry finish.

Beautiful hazy old-gold colour with a small head. Aroma very sweet and fruity with grape and kiwi. Taste has a yeasty start and a bitter aftertaste. What’s that in the middle? Banana, pear, citrus?

Draught at Tyler’s in Durham, NC. Cloudy brown color with tan head that laced the glass. Malty, floral nose with hay undertones. Sweet malty flavor with alcohol and vinegar underones. Cotton candy sweetness lingers. Very good beer.

UPDATED: SEP 17, 2008 Brown colored, medium lasting yellow head. Aroma is sweet with grains, brown sugar, mild alcohol and spices, maybe too sweet for my taste. Medium bodied. Very sweet, yeasty flavor, nice warming alcohol in the end with some spices.

330 mL bottle. Poured a beautiful hazy, medium copper/amber with a nice, creamy 1" beige head. Nose picked up a wonderful bouquet of light fruits, cloves, pepper, some citrus, and a sticky underlying caramel sweetness. Mouthfeel was quite creamy and really coated the taste buds with all its goodness... and just the right amount of carbonation kept it moving. Subtle hoppy bitterness graced the tip of the tongue and returned for the finish, and the middle was chock fulla smooth malts. Flavors included some light fruits (apple, green grapes, pears), spices (pepper and some clove), floral hops, caramel, and a yeast presence not unlike the Abt. 12. My only gripe is that the fruit and other sweetness bunched up toward the back, and became almost cloying. This was an excellent brew... get some!
