Cirrhosis (1197) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - MAY 26, 2011
Golden clear body..why is this clear? Complete with a large white fluffy cap. Aroma has mild funk, wheat, sweet lemon, sort of ginger ale but not really, finishes with some apple. Taste is nice and full, good yeast. More funk starting to appear in the nose now. Brew has a touch of soap in the finish. The ginger ale I thought I smelt is really starting show up in the taste and I love it when these Belgium beers have that taste. Kind of sourish. Beer just keeps getting better the more it warms the malts really shows up now with a vanilla and lemon taste. I gave the bottle a good swirl before my second pour and this only made the beer mildly hazy looking. Good beer glad I had itbut is it worth the price?

DuffMan (6555) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - APR 23, 2011
Grey clay bottle, shared with Parksy and TylerDurden. Hazy golden pour, decent white head that leaves traces of lace. Aroma and flavour are dominated by pale cereal malts, with notes of hay, dough, hints of dried apricots and yeast. Decent enough, but nothing special.

16 oz. ceramic, flip top bottle. Pours a medium lasting, white head, with attractive lacing, over a slightly hazy, golden (SRM 5) body....nose is light sweet malts with biscuit, honey, bits of pear and apple....taste is heavy with sweet malts, with cereal, sugar, honey tones, minimal hop bitterness....mouth feel is medium, carbonation low after the initial burst.. This really reminds me of a Biere de Garde in it malty domination. Fairly heavy sweetness, with loads of grain and cereal, minimal hop bitterness all meet the style. BJCP 7/3/13/4/6

crossovert (7023) - Illinois, USA - MAR 13, 2011
16fl oz white ceramic flip-top botte. It pours extremely light for a Tripel, more like a belgian strong pale, it is a crystal clear/very pale gold with a huge, billowing white head that recedes with a ton of fine lacing. It smells delightful, with big yeast notes, honey, and a massive fruitiness. The flavor isnt as potent as the smell, btu it is great. It is subtle and fruity, with clean malts and a grassy hop note. The finish is sweet and caramally, but never cloying. The alcohol is well in check. The mouthfeel is prickly but not overwhelming. The drinkability is nearly tops.

yngwie (13224) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - MAR 8, 2011
Bottle, 50cl ceramic. As St. Sebastiaan Grand Cru. Microfloaties in this one, else its clear. The color is golden and its topped by a dense, off-white head. Its sweet, sugary and fruity on the nose, as expected, with some faint spices and some apricot. The flavor is sweet and fruity with some warming alcohol. Some bitterness, but not enough. Full-bodied and slightly over carbonated. Fruity, sweet finish. Overall, too sweet but decent. 101126

taphandle (1135) - Texas, USA - MAR 6, 2011
Clear, yellow, frothy head with big bubbles. Unmistakable but light Belgian aroma of yeast mixed with spices. Taste is light and refreshing with hints of those spices - not overpowering at all.
