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.

UPDATED: DEC 30, 2005 Damn good beer. Tried my first strong ale the other day (Piraat) and wanted to try an American version. Victory brews some good stuff, so I thought Id check it out. Pours a very nice looking golden color with some great head that remains till the last drop. Aroma is ok, smells spicy and doughy, with maybe some rose(?). Taste is good. Vanilla and clove are recognizable and the beer finishes pretty crisply with a slight sweet and malty taste. Alcohol is hidden until it warms up a bit. Definitely creeps up on you.

Creditable interpretation of a Belgian Tripel. Noce golden hue, slightly cloudy. Spicy sweet nose, true to type. Palate is also on the mark, slightly viscous with spices. Sowewhat light weight for the style and quite crisp, the latter enhanced with some reasonably high fizz levels. Does keep the beer from cloying however. Totally eats up the 9.5%.

Definitely golden. Thick white head. Aroma is very fruity with a hint of alcohol. Taste is fruity with a lot of apple flavor and a nice spicey finish. The alcohol is easy to notice once the beer warms. Still a very good beer that’s not quite as good as the actual Belgians of the same style.

Pours a honey color with a small white head. Smells like a bouquet....very floral. Sweet taste with hints of clove in the finish. Very good.

NJJereme (385) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 20, 2005
UPDATED: NOV 2, 2007 Pours into a beautiful head that is 1 and a half inches thick. Citrine-like color complimented by a multi-layered bouquet. The taste finishes with no bitter afte- taste. Hints of clove tantzlize the palate. It is smooth but a little too sweet.

Mklein818 (172) - Etterbeek, Virginia, BELGIUM - MAY 14, 2005
UPDATED: SEP 20, 2005 An inoffensive tripel--but it left me with the eternal question: where’s the beef? nice vanilla undertones and mild sweetness--but nothing else that’s recognizable. Not bad--but missing some pizzazz.

(Bottled) Somewhat hazy golden color with a medium, tight and foamy head. Crisp, lemony-hoppy, spicy and fruity, quite duvelish aroma. Very fruity, sweetish-malty, yeasty and spicy flavor with an inch of balancing sourness and acidity. The flavor reminds me of Tripel Karmeliet. Smooth, medium to full-bodied palate with soft carbonation. Slightly sticky-sugary finish. Very easily drinkable and hides the ABV remarkably. A very enjoyable and balanced, refreshing, well-made tripel.
