3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Thereís really nothing about this beer that I found worth wanting another. I suppose the appearance is the highlight, with a nice lightly coppered orange color. However, flavors are thin and occasionally unpleasant. Not likely to find a place in my rotation.

From bottle and sampled from brewery. Pours a golden color with a thin head. Aroma was kinda that of bread/yeast. Taste had a pleasant sweetness to it. Palate with full bodied, almost syrup like. Overall this is well balanced and very enjoyable.

Sampled at tasting at stevoís. Pours yellow with white head. The aroma is banana, bread, cookies, vanilla, and mild spiciness. The falvor is lemon, banana, clove, a little bit of pepper, and some light sweetness. Textbook, but good.

Cloudy gold, thin ring of foam. The words "yeasty" and " boozy" figure prominently in my review. Also some white wine notes, as well. Not bad, but not really to my taste.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12oz bottle from Samís, Durham. Clear and quite clean-looking pour, which - as several raters have noted already - resembles apple juice with a bit more carbonation (but not cider dank). Nose is heavily malty to me, with ripe fruits and just a faint spiciness, far less than I want from a tripel. Mouthfeel is quite nice, with a slightly oily feel at first, then pleasant carbonation leading to a semi-dry finish. But this just tastes more like a strong biere de garde to me, and not an especially good one at that.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Four pack purchased at the local grocery store. Poured into a nice wide mouth glass this has a perfect clear golden color with a thin white head. The aroma is full of coriander, ginger, orange and some mild yeast and sugar notes. The palate is superb. The perfect balance between the viscosity involved with such a beer, the heavy syrup-inducing sweet flavors and the bite that comes with the hops and the alcohol. It leave the tongue with this perfect orange blossom-velvety softness, but still manages to come back with a slight crispness to it. I know this might be heresy, but I prefer this to the Siberian Night. This is a fantastic beer.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 ounce bottle. Served in a snifter, the beer pours a slightly hazy golden/orange color with about a half inch off-white head that didnít stay around for too long. Lacing is decent. The beer smells like peppery spice, yeast, peaches and citrus. However, the aroma is somewhat weak (but nice) so itís a bit hard to notice all the scents in this brew, Iím sure I missed some. Taste is similar to the aroma, the beer tastes like pepper, yeast, citrus, tropical fruit and a little bit of alcohol and cloves. Mouthfeel/body is medium, itís a bit syrupy and slick with moderate carbonation. Drinkability is decent. Overall I think this brew is OK, but thereís really nothing that impressed me about it at all. But itís certainly worth a try.
