HDane (82) - Chesapeake, Virginia, USA - DEC 20, 2006
Bottle. Pours a cloudy off-yellow with a foamy head. Aroma is yeasty, with spices, floral notes, and citrus. Flavor is very sweet, akin to honey, with the yeast and floral notes making their way in as well.

beachbum25 (1085) - Powellville, Maryland, USA - DEC 18, 2006
UPDATED: MAR 6, 2007 750 ML Bottle-Poured a cloudy golden yellow color w/a huge white head. Sweet floral aroma of a classic Belgian. Sweet, light, citrus, bananna flavor w/a slight trace of spices, maybe a little trace of dates/figs. Very good, very fresh sample. Much better than the bottle I first rated @ 3 months ago. Long flavorful finish-highly recomended.

From an 11.2oz bottle, this beer poured a gold/yellow color with an average head and copious lacing. Nice, heavy bready aroma. On first taste an incredibly soft, smooth, creamy full bodied brew hits your tongue. Nice lightly malty, and sweet fruit finish Despite the 8% ABV this is highly drinkable

lovemyipas (544) - nw burbs, Illinois, USA - DEC 14, 2006
UPDATED: FEB 14, 2007 pours a dark cloudy yellow gold with some sediment and a one finger white head. aroma is light bread and malt with a little alcohol. light to medium body with nice lacing. flavor is a little bread and malt and alcohol.also has a little dry hoppy aftertaste and nice carbonation. as smooth as the abt 12 but not as powerfull of course. pretty good and very well balanced. this is my second tripel and is by far the best yet. victory golden monkey being my first tripel.

BrandonB (86) - Denton, Texas, USA - DEC 10, 2006
Bottle. Nice golden pour with a thick, long lasting white head, lasting to finish with excellent lacing. Nice carbonation, tingly with a sweet aroma and a taste that is sharp, flowery, maybe a little spice, fruit. I may rate it higher, but I enjoyed it thoroughly.

voota (765) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - DEC 4, 2006
Hazy dark golden with a large foamy white head. Aroma is reasonably light, metallic and fruity. Flavour is fruity and very smooth, with pudding spice and heavy toffee/candy. Earthy flavours in the finish, rounding off a great triple

winegarner (220) - san diego, California, USA - DEC 4, 2006
Poured a clear gold color with a moderate head that faded faster than I would have hoped for. Aroma is interesting with both fruit and sweet malt. Hops are very present in the aroma as well; flowers, herbs and cat pee. Upon tasting the beer has a sweet malt beginning that is followed by a robust bitterness and carbonic bite. Full bodied but not heavy enough to be lingering.
