THIS is what a Belgian style is all about. Might just be one of the best beers made in North America. They should be awfully proud of the yeasts they accumulated to produce this gem.

this is my first tripel ... very interesting ... almost yellow in color, very cloudy ... head dissapated quickly, probably due to the heavy carbonation ... flavor is sweet but almost a little sour ... alcohol is present in the flavor but isnt over powering at all ... clean finish ...

Shared big 750ml bottle. Good solid tripel. Just lacking a tas in the flavor catergory. Like mine a little sweeter.

UPDATED: JUN 5, 2003 Another first impression Whoa! This brew foamed up 1/4 brew, 3/4 foam as I poured it into my glass. Its head was a very white color. The bubbles in the head ranged from small to large. Again, this is another very carbonated brew. This brew also had a very mild aroma. It too was hard for me to distinguish from other smells. It has a very light orange color with yeast particles floating in it. Its flavor contains a variety of different tastes. The carbonation once again rolls off the tongue. It is adding to my buzz tonight. I liked the flavor and taste of the brew. It agrees with me very much. All in all an excellent brew! This brew is very potent and it added to my buzz for the evening. Hotstuff gave it a 4.55 rating and said she could drink it for the evening, but would be very drunk and that we would have a great time!

Pale yellow in color with a large, white head. Citrus (esp. grapefruit) aroma, slightly spicey. Flavor is citrusy at the front, yeasty, with a spicey finish and a touch of alcohol at the end.

UPDATED: AUG 30, 2004 Miniscule Brussels Lace feverishly dancing among yeast and spice sediment make this one of the most beatiful beers I have seen in a while. Two-finger head poured, traces of head remained to the last sip. Suberp! Yeasty, clove, corriander, citrus taste. Very complex. Outstanding beer!

Hazy golden liquid with a moderate sturdy off white head. Drunken oranges marching yeast to the bread factory aroma. Thick feel. Nice background of malt with pepper and chalky yeast flavors. A decent relax and enjoy tipple.

Decent yellow yeasty beer. Taste and smell slighlty astringent but nice and tangy tart flavor throughout. Good flavor. A bit thin on the texture for my taste. Nice alcohol kick.

This beer poured a golden straw color and formed a bubbly white head that left circular lace. A small amount of carbonation was present. It had an aroma of citrus, spice(?clove) and some yeast elements. The flavor was of spice and citrus with a warming feeling of the alcohol present. The finish was a touch astrigent

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
UPDATED: MAR 19, 2004 A solid brew with a pretty noticeable alcohol taste. The rest of the beer, makes you not care about the alcohol. Not too bitter, with a yeast-like texture. Highly recommended------ 3/19/04. This was the beer that got me hooked on beer and Rate Beer. Now that I look back at my original rating, its pretty pitiful. 12 oz bottle this time. Nose is fruity, I smell pineapples, malts, yeasts, and spices. Don't remember the aroma being so pleasant. Pours hazy blonde with a HUGE white head. Very sweet and fruity start--really taste what appears to be pineapple. Sweet candies in the middle. Alcohol hidden well. Nice palate. I agree with my initial rating. This seems much better than the first time I had it.
