750ml bottle shared by my brother in law. Pours a bright golden color with a white fizzy head. nose is lightly sweet but with a dry yeasty note mixed in as well. Light straw and grain also present. Palate is smooth with a light dryness; crisp. Flavors of the light sweet malt note and yeast show up and there is a nice crisp feeling. It is not overly syrupy nor overly dry, but both aspects are present.

From a 750 ml corked and caged bottle purchased from Paul’ Grocery in McCall, ID, this poured a cloudy apricot color with a big long lasting off-white head and very serious lacing rings. The nose is of ripe fruit with apricot dominating. Very smooth and creamy mouthfeel. Flavor is very complex with ripe fruit, caramel, spices, and citrus. An exceptional beer.

330 mL bottle from Grape & Gourmet in Virginia Beach, VA. Pours a hazy peach color with lots of carbonation visible and a few very small white floaties. Large head with good head retention and lacing. Bready, yeasty aroma with light fruity notes. Taste is bread, caramel, spice, light fruit and nutty notes. Full bodied. Slight alcohol warmth. Good beer.

Bottle. This is one of the best tripels I’ve ever had. Pours dark gold with a fluffy white head that is short lived. Aroma features a bit of caramel and - I think - spongecake? Honey comes through strongly in the flavour as well as malt, caramel and a touch of heather. This is a smooth, full bodied beer that has just the right amount of sweetness. Great stuff.

Fantastic! Delicious and surprisingly smooth and mellow... every lover of Belgians should probably seek this out.

Julio’s Belgian Beer Festival. Sample. This was one of the highlights for me of the festival. Very impressed with this tripel. One of the few I really liked. While it has all the characteristics of a typical belgian triple this one was unique. Predominent taste I remember was lemon. Will be buying more of this.

Golden orangish poor, Big fuzzy white head that disaptes very quickly. Aroma is a bit lemon zest, ripe bannans, bit of floral. Flavor is still a bit bannas at front, very effervescent and yeasty in the middle finished a bit dry. Overall very nice.

My wife says dead girl is spot on but that she caught some apricot in there as well. I agree with the wife that its a pretty beer to behold in the glass and it has a unique taste for a tripel (still I don’t like it) and she enjoyed it alot! The rating is all hers...

33cl bottle. Pours a clear golden colour with a huge creamy white head. Finely lacing and fully lasting foam. Aroma is quite complex: light malt with some grain, lots of hops with flowers and herbs, and some alcohol too. Flavor is a bit disappointing: bitterness and acidity in the initial flavor, bitterness and alcohol sweetness in the finishing flavor. Light alcoholic and spicy end. Medium bodied with creamy texture and fizzy carbonation. To me, best of this beer is the wonderful aroma of flowers and the incredible head: never seen something as beatiful as this. A better and more complex flavor could make this beer one of my favourites.
