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.

gave it an average score, because even when i don't like something, i think i can acknowledge that it is well made and that some people may like it. to me, tasted like a belgian spiced beer from hell. burning and medicinal, ouch! very very very unique and a surpise it's so available from a great brewery.

spkldhenlvr24 (517) - Newburgh/Buffalo, New York, USA - MAR 6, 2004
UPDATED: APR 5, 2005 good tripel. Alcohol can be detected. A hazy golden appearence with a good white head. Tangy medium mouthfeel. Fruity, spicy finish.

Alcoholist (570) - Peoria, Illinois, USA - MAR 5, 2004
Cloudy golden colour, thick creamy lacing seals the glass. Aroma is honey and wheat with some citrus. Flavour is complex floral and sweet. Refreshing like a Hefeweizen and totally masks the ABV. A definite winner.

Eirikur (374) - hafnarfjordur, ICELAND - FEB 26, 2004
UPDATED: MAY 1, 2004 Now, that is a brew. What a glorious liquid this is, It is like nothing I have ever had, It has that American Triple malt/hops feeling, both aroma, taste and Palate. I would drink this every other night if I had the change to.

BigBastard (668) - L.A., California, USA - FEB 23, 2004
Nice spice, clove, butterscotch, banana and apple tones. Was almost too sweet, a whole bottle would have been too much, but it was perfect for sharing.

Kalli (502) - Falun, SWEDEN - FEB 21, 2004
UPDATED: APR 22, 2004 This is great stuff! Hardly any head, but just a hint of creamy foam floating and leaving some good lacing. The colour is a beautiful golden amber. Gorgeous! Aroma and flavour felt a bit hard to pin, perhaps some peaches in the aroma and a rounded fruit bouquet to the flavour with some citrusy notes. Not heavy in body, but full and perfectly rounded. Everything about this beer speaks to me of finesse and great brewing.

haukur (1345) - Reykjavik, ICELAND - FEB 21, 2004
UPDATED: APR 25, 2004 a brilliant golden color, spicy taste, combined with citrus and tiny hints of orange notes, quite hoppy. EXCELLENT tripel

Crockett (1027) - Southampton,Ontario, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 18, 2004
Pours hazy gold/orange, with a quick disolving head. Aromas are of spicey sweetness, yeasty, and citric. Body is a little syruppy. Lots of tangerines and yeast. Banana, apple, and honey notes. Hides the alcohol very well. Excellent palate.

rabuc (143) - carlisle, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 16, 2004
poured golden clear with thick, frothy, white head. i noted a spicey aroma that was citrusy but different to most beers of this type. taste was very different with unique citrus flavor. malt was there but not much hops.... a very different beer that i believe has to grow on you. i can't wait for the next one!

Amber color with large head. Sweet malty aroma with some citrus smells.True triple flavor with malts well blended and not to hoppy.Alcohol is strong but not noticed. Gets a little spicy as it warms.Finishes kind of fruity and slightly dry.
