The scent is lovely and fresh with notes of yeast, citrus and sweet malt. The taste is similar, with a distinct flavor of yeast, citrus and wheat. The aftertaste is delightfully soft and sweet with warming alcohol. A very delicious beer!

Amber color. This appears closer to an IPA than a Tripel. Oranges on the nose. Medium bodied with plenty of ripe banana and some candied notes on the finish.

En route to Haeckel-Stein, Jena. Thanks Sven! Nice sweet orange candy nose, quite full. Very dusty taste, cloves, typical Belgian, sweet. Will rerate, but this smelled lovely, and the taste, while not up with the best of them, is quite nice.

beerbill (3409) - Laurel, New York, USA - APR 6, 2012
750 ml bottle. Pours a clear golden amber with a moderate linen white head that lasted through the first quarter of the glass and left partial lace. The second pour was more hazy and was filled lots of floaties. Pleasant aroma of sweet malt with a bit of sugar, caramel, and fruit. The flavor is similar with sweet malt, a bit of sugar, mild caramel and fruit. Medium bodied. Solid.

Finishes bitter spicy with a good warming alcohol trouch,
