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.

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.

sayravai (4708) - Helsinki, FINLAND - MAY 11, 2005
(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.

cvillebeer (134) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - MAY 10, 2005
Pours a particulated golden color with a frothy but short lived head. Tha aroma is yeasty and spicy with coriander and subtle hops. The coriander and yeast come through in the flavor and the palate is full without being cloying or thick. One of my favorites from an excellent brewery.

Jan Primus (160) - Waterloo, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 9, 2005
Rich golden colour, big white head. Taste is sweet, spicy, floral and just a hint of sour to mask the alcohol, which has almost no presence. Definately a winner.

braudimusprime (75) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - MAY 3, 2005
Pale gold color with active head, herbal aroma and firm, thick mouthfeel. Taste is pretty normal for a tripel, although a bit more restrained than some belgians. Malt, yeast, alcohol, fruit, and spice are all present. What it lacks in strong flavor it makes up for in drinkability and refreshment value.

eboats (1082) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - APR 30, 2005
Cloudy gold with a white head. Aroma: yeast, citrus, spices, clove, orange peel. This has a thick yeasty body that is loaded with spices. Has some light fruit flavors: orange, lemon, and apple that compliment the thick yeastiness. Lingering spicey finish.

kook (2033) - Perth, Western Australia, AUSTRALIA - APR 23, 2005
Gold in colour with a large fluffy white head. Mild dry herbal hop aroma with some spicy notes. Flavour is pretty much a standard tripel. Suprisingly dry though. Not bad.

hazy gold with a large white head. nice citrus spice aroma. nice medium bodied mouthfell with a wealth of flavors, among them citrus, white pepper, coriander, cloves, and a touch of banana. Well done.

tobi98ab (32) - Taste of Beer, Frederiksberg, DENMARK - APR 6, 2005
[bottled] Nice and golden look, a bit unclear, with a nice full head. Citrus hits you in aroma and the first impression in the mouth. Pleasure all the way down, full and soft body, with a well balanced sweetness. This one reminded me of Gulden Draak - A wolf in sheeps clothes!! Great!
