Pale golden pour. White head. The nose is light spicy and pleasantly dry. A bit of light wheaty malt and a kiss of clove and light mint. Lean and dry initially but as it warms, it starts to pick up a touch of honeyed sweetness. Itís pretty simple, but itís well made and quite tasty.

puzzl (3257) - New York, New York, USA - OCT 21, 2009
Bottled. Another messy tripel. It seems that arenít more than maybe 5 people on the planet that can brew this style right. Moderately cloudy with a small foam cap. Banana, clove, and a mild doughy note in the aroma hint at good things to come, but the letdown is inevitable. A weird, half-sweet, very vegetal and astringent flavor presents itself, making the beer very hard to drink. Swing and a miss.

PilsnerPeter (3034) - Flushing, New York, USA - OCT 14, 2009
Bottle: Hazy golden with a white film of head. Odd aroma- some vegetal character and pastry sweetness accompanied by an odd apple-like fruity hint. Thereís some plasticy phenols in there as well. Light body with some Belgian pale malt doughy/pastry honeyish sweetness. Not much yeast depth or spiciness that I like to see in the style. Vague and not dry enough.

yobdoog (1888) - Kingston, New York, USA - OCT 7, 2009
750ml. Clear to hazy orange with a small head. Aroma has banana, clove and the rest of the kitchen sink of spices. A bit of honey and citrus too. Flavor is mostly sweet, banana, leaves and faint spice. Some more honey, a bit bubbly.

Meatmallet (126) - Salem, Illinois, USA - OCT 6, 2009
Appearance: Pours a clear light orange color with a medium sized white head. Lots of carbonation can be seen cominf from the bottom of the glass. Smell: Smell is light with apples, apricots, and cloves. I also get a bit of wheat and malt in there too. Very slight alcohol smell. Taste: Nice and sweet. Apples, honey, oranges, and grain Peppery with a slight hop bitterness. You can taste the hops more in the after taste. Mouthfeel/drinkability: Highly carbonated and light bodied. Very good taste. It opens up a bit more as it warms.

Gary (1754) - Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 4, 2009
Pretty nice. Notes of dry honey, spice,oranges ,perfume ,raw alcohol. Malty rich sweetness gives a good aura. Very eazy to put away , could be thicker and more full bodied .

Beer5000 (5467) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - SEP 30, 2009
330 ml bottle. Golden with a big foamy white head. Aroma is spicy and sweet like candyfloss. Flavor is light malty, light spicy, a bit fruity, some warming alcohol and a sticky sweet finish. The sweetness is dominating and the rest of the beer is pretty one dimensional. Still drinkable in smaller amounts.

Bottle, at Cardinal. It pours an almost clear, orange-golden head under a diminishing off-white head leaving lacings. Fruity nose with white sugar, some spices and a little alcohol. The flavor has a pronounced grainy flavor as well as fruits and white sugar. Some alcohol gives a little warmth, and it finishes sugary sweet and spiced. Dry, still sweetish mouthfeel, with a touch of something like chewing on wet cheap cardboard. A decent one, nothing more. Iíd rather drink its weaker brother Blond. 090728
