4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 20/20
Color a pale, cloudy yellow color with yeast floating around, nice white frothy head leaving clingy, patchy lace. Smells of lemon and tropical fruit, banana, with a hint of spice and sweet bitterness. Taste is more of the same, citrusy and tropically smooth and clean with a spicy lemon dry finish thats warming from the alcohol. Feel is medium body sweet and fruity flavors that dry out, nice, crisp and clean finish with warming qualities from alcohol. Pretty drinkable but is a sipper, 9%, it'll sneak up on you for sure

UPDATED: APR 21, 2006 Citric aroma.
Pale cloudy yellow, champagne bubbles, white soap head.
Citrus, yeast and some low key belgian funk. Also some ethanol and phenolic notes. Deceivingly light body makes you go to the end of the world...eh...bottle fast.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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...
