COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Enchanting and enlightening, this golden, frothy ale boasts an intriguing herbal aroma, warming alcohol esters on the tongue and light, but firm body to finish. Exotic spices add subtle notes to both the aroma and flavor. Strong, sensual and satisfying.

The aroma is warm, inviting, and outstanding. Banana and clove action right off the bat but not as much as in a Hefeweizen. More citrus than herbal or floral and that’s just great. The appearance is flawless, featuring a perfectly gold color with a puffy white head that forms lacing all by itself. Constant bubbles shoot upwards. Medium bitter medium sweet and the alcohol is well-noticed here. Flavor is very heavy on the clove at the front of the tongue. Yes, cloves, and a dash of cinnamon is what I detect. The aftertaste is where this one falls a little short, as I feel like I’ve had better tripels before. Still, all in all, an outstanding beer in this class and has a nice warming effect on me.

Slightly hazy golden colour. Aroma is one of belgian origins with yeast, esters, kitchen spice, banana and some dried fruit/apricot thing. More of the same ’tripel’ flavours on the palate with some grassy bitterness as well. It is a pretty decent brew for sure and balanced considering the ABV.

Belgian yeast dominates. Banana, herbs, light fruit. It?s sweet, acidic, and it lingers. The alcohol is hidden. Decent take on the style. Not for me.

from a 33cl bottle, pours a golden straw color with a small white head that did not stay long, only leaving a ring around. Aroma of citrus malts, yeast and mostly grapefruits. Flavors of fruity and malty, herbs, grains, grapefruit, toasty, honey and some spices. nice medium body, good flavors, nice triple. Has a kind of a sweet caramel candy finish. Light sweetness and bitterness. nice and enjoyable.

dbhenry (120) - El Paso, Texas, USA - JUL 14, 2014
This is a good ale. Very pronounced head. Hops are understated, with all the attention on the malt taste, which has some interesting herbal flavors. Overall, it is a good ale, not great.

The aroma is floral with a little citrus. The appearance is much like a regular everyday pale ale but a little "thicker". The palate is beautiful with a nice coating that pleases the mouth.

Bottle. Clear gold. Fruit and yeast aroma. The taste is very unique - sweet alcohol tanin qualities, light butter, spiced bite on the middle, and green apple. The high abv is noticeable on the finish with some numbness on the tongue. Interesting brew by Victory ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Light and luminous gold color, tall and lacy white head. Subtle but misterious aroma, spices, floral, resin. Light body, delicately but full flavored, avg length, balanced. Mildly bittersweet, crisp, hint of salt. Honeyed, hoppy, Pleasant, not huge beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
