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.

DanielBrown (4112) - Birmingham (via Leicester), West Midlands, ENGLAND - JUL 6, 2004
Bottle from Safeway, Shirley, West Mids. Hazy gold, with a thin, but sticky head. A solid honey and lemon flavour - super smooth ad tangy. A breathy alcohol strength on the finish, but on the whole ghostlike in itís restraint. Sweeeet.

CapFlu (4778) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 5, 2004
(Draught) Pours a medium, white foamy head and a slightly cloudy amber body. Nose is somewhat yeasty and lemony. The flavour is lactic, hoppy with undertones of apple sauce. Good.

MartinKubert (862) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUN 29, 2004
Vintage í00: Infected --> poored it out. Vintage í02: Very hoppy and bitter! Mild though with a smooth sourish mouthfeel and finish. Small head and amber colour. Fresh sourness in the aftertaste.

(sample @ brewery) beer a hazy pale yellow under a puffy white head. nose is full of belgian-type funk. almost smells like an alcoholic wit. flavor is malty and sweet, balanced by the belgian yeastís spicy flavor. still, a rather heavy beer, with not quite enough balance to the big malt flavors.

I really like the brews Victory cranks out. I definitely like this one, but not near as much as the Storm King. I love Triples, but this is not one of the best examples. The color is a nice golden-yellow. The aroma is spicy sweet. The taste is pretty good too, but it just seems to be a bit over the top wth the spice and fruit...just a bit. Itís still a solid brew. The 9.5% alcohol is hidden pretty well. Bottom line is that this is pretty good, but just not what Iíd like to drink on a daily basis. To me, beers like St Feullien Triple and Stumblin Monk take this style to the next level.

Gold Coloring. Small Head. Hard to understand Abbey Tripel...but want to try again... spice... Not a bad beer...just expecting something different.

Joeh (2049) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - JUN 24, 2004
UPDATED: FEB 19, 2005 Bottle (very lively). So, this is a good stab at a belgian style, but itís hardly up with other triplesl. Amazing how this scores above the Westmalle.

Sip this one and enjoy. Nice color and head with a flavor that is so unique that it must be sampled to understand. Let your taste buds try to understand this one and relax.

wunderbier (1434) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUN 17, 2004
12 oz bottle, snifter. Large, frothy, white head is well lasting and sits on a hazy, amber body. Bread, cookie malt (M); perfume, lemon hops (M); dough, cheese (M); banana, clove, peach, pineapple, ginger aromas. Heavily sweet, lightly acidic flavor becomes a moderately sweet, lightly acidic, moderately bitter finish. Medium-full body, watery/creamy texture, lively carbonation. The bottom line is: the yeast profile is unattractive and too strong in the flavor.

Forever grateful to cigarsnbeer for this amazing brew! Yeasty, wine like aroma. Poures deep golden yellow with fast disappearing head. Golden monkeys swimming all over in the glass. Peppery, alcohol warmth. Apples, pears and white grape flavors. Gets better as it warms, with more complexity. Richly satisfying. Nice take on the style.
