Fluffy head that fades to a thin layer that remains until the bottom of the glass. Aroma of buttered bread and spice. The first flavor is of sharp spiceyness or maybe it is the alcohol warming the tongue. The flavor then briefly is of sweet fruit before it fades to buttery bread. The aftertaste is a combination of all the previous flavors with a few spots on the tongue still warmed by the spice and or alcohol. Medium bodied with a slightly thin finish.

Lots of flavors, complex. It wasn't something I would have tried on my own, but it came recommended so I tried it. Glad I did.

Cloudy and blonde, looks like a wit, but with different aroma. Negligible head, but with this beer, it works. A fruity, slightly sweet taste that lingers just long enough, giving a slightly unpleasant tang at the end. This goes away after the first few sips, and the beer becomes quite citrusy and enjoyable.

Bottled. Murky blonde appearance. peppery orangey aroma. Soft and malty, powerful. Some almond and toffee. Firm, flavourful and complex.

Spicy, frutiy aroma and flavor. Alcohol though quite high is not overly present in the flavor. Very enjoyable, flavorful and well crafted beer.

JonR888710 (999) - Cochabamba, BOLIVIA - OCT 20, 2003
Peachy, yellow hazy body with hints of grey. Very few bubbles. Really, no head at all. Hate to say it, but it looks just like urine. Smells of clove spice, sweet citrus (orange & lemons), and yeast. Taste is sweet and peachy, almost like a chardonnay, nicely balanced with a citrus twang and clove spice presence. Medium bodied and silky mouth feel. Drinks easily. Aftertaste is light and refreshing. Sweet, but not sticky. This is a very good beer, delicately so. Sampled from a 750ml bottle purchased at Whole Foods in Falls Church, VA.

Just as a 30-pack is a guarantee of a bad beer, a 750 mL bottle with a cork is a guarantee of a good beer. Pours a very cloudy yellow color with a small but attractive head. Heavy coriander aroma leaves me literally salivating. Some hops in there as well. Taste is mostly of coriander with a slight hint of hops initially and berries in the finish. This beer was out of the fridge for an hour and 20 minutes before I drank it. This is a good beer, but is not in the same league as Allagash Tripel Reserve. To be honest, it is quite similar to Hoeegarden, but with more malt behind the coriander.

UPDATED: OCT 3, 2007 2003 bottleAroma is incredible. Slightly sweet and creamy, but has plenty of spicy kick as well. Lots of head and a nice clouded yellow color. Begins very spicy and rich with some bitter alcohol notes, the finish is quite unique though, has almost a minty fresh appeal, like a cold shot of mint vanilla hitting the back of your throat. Then it turns in to a very fuzzy warm alcohol flavor with plenty of candied sugar and yeasty goodness. Moderately astringent up front and alcohol could be better masked. The beer dosent fair too well as it warms, slightly watery and gets a lemony flavor. Great beer overall though. 8/4/7/3/15
2004 bottle Trippel tasting, 3/24/05. Cloudy, white-golden body, quite pale, with very well-retained head. Aroma is very phenolic and quite dry as well, with lots of yeast, lemon peel and slight hops bitterness. Flavor is much the same, though this one seems to get too dry and bitter/acidic. Very champagne-like in both flavor and mouthfeel. Coriander and lemon-peel mix with dry yeast and light alcohol on the finish to create a strong sense of dryness, too much so, I thought.7/4/6/3/12

Hazy golden color with a moderate head and excellent lacing, bubbly. Nice aroma, peaches, oranges, grapefruit. Medium bodied, silky on the tongue with sweet/sour citrus flavors, a note of allspice and faintly musty. The finish lingered and was on the sweet side with some alcohol. Tasty.
