4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
330mL bottle: Pours golden in color with a huge amount of white head. The head, even when poured slowly, is way to big. Colors is a bit hazy. Smell is a nice orange smell and a small amount of wheat smell. Taste is nice and citrus filled, very nice. Carbonation seems a bit high in this beer, but it doesn’t take away from it at all.

2.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
330ml bottle bought at De Bier Tempel, Brussels in Feb.’05 (bb.March 07). Golden-orange body with some sediments floating around. Creamy white head leaving nice lacing on the glass. Smell of citrus and wheat. Ripe banana and pear sweetness in flavour. Very well hidden alcohol. Moderate to full mouthfeel. Well balanced, but gets much too sweet to my taste (11.11.2006).

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Hazy golden color with nice fizzy head. Aroma is sour with a little citrus, not bad. The flavor is mildly complex and acidic with a hint of sweet. Very bubbly. Not great.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
A cloudy golden color with a nice thin white head. The aroma was very complex with hints of yeast and citris as well as some lemon or sweetness to it. The taste was champagne like with a stinging fizz the went into a spicy floral flavor. It also had hints of sweet apricots or peaches. Very good brew.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: DEC 4, 2009 Oops, will rerate when I remember...(or buy again) very good... pours like a champaign. Not overly spicy. At one point though all i could taste was alcohol.
(rerate) pours a clear golden with tall thin sticky sudsy head. Aroma is very clean, yeast, sweet floral, wit like. Flavor follows exactly clean yeasty floral sweet botanical hint of dough. Hard candy feeling.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle, 330ml. A murky golden colour with a huge white head. Aromas of sweet peach, yeast and a little malt. Taste of honeycomb, peach and bread/yeast. A sweet citrus orange finish. Very high carbonation. A good Tripel, but the high carbonation made it difficult to drink.

Good bottle of beer. I noticed the slight banana background flavor and enjoyed the fizzy, winelike mouthfeel. Good beer.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Amber color, huge head (server said he hates pouring them because the head is so hard to control). Spicy, citrus head. Looks and tastes fizzy. Flavors of citrus. Complex and spicy with no bitterness in the aftertaste. A classic, subtle Belgian tripel.
