Bottle. Hazy orange yellow with floaters and a white head. Banana, citrus, orange, and green apples in the nose. A nice light tangy flavor that leaves a dry finish.

For some reason, (hormones or whatever), I thought this beer was really really sweet at first. Definitely smelled like apricots, I got used to it and drank it a bit too fast...

A lovely golden orange color with a full head that dissapates quickly. Very sweet, fruity nose. Tastes nice in mouth (banana, spice, and citrus) but there was a slightly metallic aftertaste. Would try again to see if metallic taste is always there or was simply this bottle.

Gusler (2653) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - NOV 25, 2002
Re-Rate 11/25/02: The beer pours an iridescent and slightly hazy orange color, the frothy in it texture, monstrous in size, the lace a thick lattice to coat the glass. Nose is malt, banana sweet, citrus, crisp and quite a treat for the old beak to sniff. Front is lightly sweet, the top skimpy, the finish is ferine in it’s acidity, flavorful in its hop presence, extremely dry and slightly alcohol bitter aftertaste. Quite a decent “Triple”, and one that’s worth a sample as with their dubbel. Ranks #248 on my current 1000 beer master list.

Now that was a tasty little number! Nice golden color, slightly foamy head with a nice rich flavor! I liked this one a lot!

skortila (4853) - Baarn, NETHERLANDS - NOV 9, 2002
Cloudy dark yellow colour. strong spicy aroma. Interesting, strange initial taste, don’t know what to think of it. Bit malty, bitter spicy and sweet. Palate is not interesting.

caesar (5828) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - NOV 9, 2002
Orange hazy color. Spicy aroma. Malts and yeast appear in the taste. Sweetness also. Bit bitter alcoholic palate.

JMerritt (1894) - Macomb, Illinois, USA - NOV 1, 2002
Light golden in color, moderately bubbly, with a miniscule head that dropped quickly. Aroma was rather bland: only slight hints of citrus and alcohol. Flavor is not very complex: pretty basic citrusy and yeasty flavor. However, it did hide the alcohol rather well, and finished spicy and malty. Although not a spectacular beer, it is definitely worth a taste.

Pretty good but not great. A little on the hot side for me, as are most if not all of the Huyghe beers. Not my favorite brewery.

nice sour/fruity aroma...color is golden with a thin head, some nice lacing left behind though. flavor is quite fruity, but has a woody/earthy notes to it. just didnt think this had the complexity of other examples of the style.
