16 ounce bottle into chalice, best before 4/9/2014. Pours hazy and cloudy golden orange color with a 1 finger fluffy white head with great retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Spotty soapy lacing on the glass, with a good amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of pear, apple, grape, bread, candi sugar, honey, clove, earth, pepper, herbal, and yeast spiciness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance and complexity. Taste of apple, pear, grape, apricot, bread, pepper, clove, earth, honey, candi sugar, herbal, and yeast spiciness. Lingering notes of light fruits, bread, pepper, clove, honey, candi sugar, earth, and yeast spiciness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice flavor balance and complexity; with a nice malt/spiciness balance; and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a fairly slick and crisp mouthfeel that is good. Alcohol is very well hidden with only a slight warming noticed after the finish. Overall this is a very good Belgian tripel style. Very nice complexity and balance of flavors; and very smooth to sip on. A very enjoyable offering.

(16oz ceramic fliptop) clear gold, lasting off-white head with nice lacing. Nose of golden raisins, Belgian yeast, coriander and other spices, white pepper in the background. Taste is a tinge metallic, golden raisins, slighty papery but mostly in the background, touches of saccharin, tastes artificially sweetened, light spices like white pepper, probably just esters from the Belgian yeast. Medium carbonation, but still fairly sweet. Decent beer, but a few flaws make it just slightly above average for me.

tomer (1678) - Rishon Le Zion, ISRAEL - NOV 24, 2012
Bottle as "St. Sebastiaan Grand Cru", long lasting creamy head with some lacing, hazy golden colour with some orange streaks, earthy yeasty aroma with rose petals, some white fruits and candy in the back, flavour of rose petals, orange blossom and citrus, finely balanced and not too heavy with lively carbonation, light bitterness and a long sourish afteraste. A very nice brew that’s quite easy to drink.

JohnRMurdoch (3244) - Glasgow, SCOTLAND - OCT 30, 2012
500ml bottle from Appellation Wines. Hazy golden yellow colour, big foamy head. Yeast grain malt aroma. Strong dry flowery orange flavour. Bitter aftertaste. Really nice bottle, not a bad beer but a bit too strong & not outstanding.

KajII (782) - Macon, North Carolina, USA - SEP 30, 2012
16oz Bottle. The pour was a clear light golden yellow with an average (1-2 finger) white creamy head that had great retention and superb sheets of lacing. The aroma was of a light grain malt and a musty sweet Belgian yeast with notes of banana, green apple, citrus (lemon), bubblegum and coriander. The taste was malty and lightly sweet with a touch of apple and a hint of banana early on, with a nice fruity ester creeping in along with a bold yeasty presence and just a bit of spice at the end. The flavor lasted only a short time proceeding the swallow with the fruity yeast taste lingering for a little while, before fading away entirely. Mouthfeel was light in body with a watery yet mildly dry texture and a strong lively carbonation. Overall a light flavorful Abbey Ale with a great drinkability, which could be dangerous considering the somewhat higher ABV...

Weird-ass Yeast Hoist bottle. Golden pour with a smallish white head. Lots of fruity esters on the aroma with grains and Belgian yeast. The flavor is somewhat sweet and fairly yeasty but well balanced. Peach and banana yeast notes. Medium-plus bodies with good carbonation. Maybe a tad on the syrupy side. Good beer overall.

DSG (5731) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - JUL 28, 2012
Bottle. As "St. Sebastiaan Grand Cru". Clear deep golden with a nice, big, stable white head. Aroma has some fruitiness, alcohol, some floral and grassy hops and light grainy hints. Rather sweet alcoholic flavor with some malt, honey notes, some fruitiness, yeasty notes and a drier finish, slightly spicy, with light bitterness and some more alcohol. Medium-bodied. So-so.
