Golden orange with lots of yeast flocculation going on! I should have perhaps decanted this one. Aroma is a very mixed bag while it is pleasant overall, there is just a hint of some spoiled (lets say overripe) fruity notes that slightly diminish this beerís nose. Yeast is huge in both aroma and taste along with some nice tartness. It tastes better than it smells. The 9% is almost totally hidden in the sweetness - which is not to say itís anywhere near cloying because itís not. A very nice tripel.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Beautiful clear golden color, topped by a quickly diminishing white head. Fruity spicy Belgian yeasty aroma. Flavor is sweet, almost bubblegum, but not cloying. Spicy too, with only a hint of alcohol. Licorice in the aftertaste. Quite a nice beer.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Hazy medium gold under yellowish beige, medium size, short lasting head. Startlingly big bubblegum, fruity and and honey aromatic hit fading quickly to a bready dough yeast and faint wood alcohol. Honey, fruit and sweet caramel malt balanced by plenty of bitter to make things interesting. End and finish are slightly soft and sweetish. Alcohol well masked but not all that memorable.

Nice hint of citrus in the aroma. Citrus comes through in the body and balances the alcohol well. Finishes a little dry. Each sip leaves you feeling like the show is over, but nothing got concluded.

Must have gotten a bad bottle. Powerful alcohol after taste, more sediment that I would normally expect. Iíll have to try this again, after reading some of the other ratings.

Yuck! Light citrus and yeasty aroma. Pale orange, white frothy head, fair lace. Very soapy and alcohol bitterness. Long bitter finish.
