Light gold color. Small head. Aroma is yeasty, fruity and citrusy. A medium bodied Belgian tripel. Fruity, bright, yeasty and spicy, all the things an Abbey Triple should be. Complex flavors are intermingling here. Apples, oranges and peaches mix with coriander, cloves and allspice (?) to make a very pleasant tasting beer. Add its extremely fine champagne like carbonation and this beer is a real winner. Very smooth. The 9% alcohol is hidden fairly well. It does peak out occasionally, as every once in a while there is a touch of alcohol bite and it is a real belly warmer. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and dry. Aftertaste is slightly sweet.

Golden color, thin white head. Had a light aroma of whiskey and 7UP and a champagne-like aroma. Very well hidden alcohol. Overall a nice drink.

Suttree (5190) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - JUN 16, 2003
Pours cloudy gold with a white head that disappears quickly. Looks a lot like a hefeweizen, actually. Smells of roasted grain and a little malt, plus some alcohol. Mellow at first, with a salty hop flavor, then a sweet grainy flavor. It seems a bit sloppy in the carbonation, as well. Has a dry, long aftertaste.

JCW (1275) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUN 10, 2003
Light yellow in color, somewhat cloudy. Yeasty aroma. Flavor is yeasty almost like a weiss or wit mixed a sweet fruit flavor of bananas and apples. Dry finish. Good Beer

mreeves (275) - Sammamish, Washington, USA - JUN 9, 2003
Pale yellow color, very frothy head and effervescent carbonation. Nice, light taste despite the 9% alcohol. An excellent beer.

3fourths (8103) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JUN 6, 2003
UPDATED: NOV 5, 2009 Murky bright yellow color with a large foamy white head. Looks like a wit. Aroma of Dawn dish soap and orange and lemon peel. Nice spicy flavors at first, turning to a more alcoholic and soapy feel mixed with a pleasent wheat taste. Leaves the mouth very spicy and jumpy.

Not bad but just didn't really do it for this hophead. A somewhat spicy belgian ale I guess. Afterwards I used a Stone IPA to bring my tastebuds back in line...

wnp22 (685) - Toronto (Roncesvalles Village), Ontario, CANADA - MAY 25, 2003
UPDATED: OCT 27, 2004 Appearance is cloudy and opaque. Scents of spice, cirtus, orange and corriander. Spicy taste, orange and corriander come through. Very light body and taste considering the alcohol content.

Lots of bubbles with a medium-thick white head. Sweet, yeasty nose. Dark straw yellow in appearance, with cloves, yeasty, and a spice metallic character to the body.
