Rich golden colour, fruity aroma and a soft, sweet maltiness. Lively mouthfeel with a finish reminiscent of brut champagne. Brewed under license of the Duinen Monastery by the family owned Huyghe-Melle Brewery.

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.

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 (4821) - 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 (5771) - 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 (1887) - 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.

Ringo (963) - Loveland, Colorado, USA - OCT 28, 2002
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.

igneous1 (1510) - Davenport, Iowa, USA - OCT 8, 2002
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.

hopscotch (10077) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - OCT 7, 2002
This beer rocks. Great aroma. Heavy, rich malty smell, blended with grapefruit, cinamon, chardonnay (sp?), banana and alcohol. Hazy, dark golden color. Small, creamy white head with excellent lacing. Mostly lasting. The flavor is of malt, fresh plum and clover honey minus the sickening sweetness. Medium bodied with an oily mouthfeel. Very fizzy. Long, dry finish. Excellent belgian ale. The high ABV is mostly disguised. I actually like this more than the dubbel. A must try.

Vac (2445) - San Diego, California, USA - OCT 4, 2002
the aroma is spicy, yeasty and malty with a hint of oranges. the flavor on this golden orange brew is orangey and spicy with a woody dry hoppy finish.
