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.

OhioDad (2492) - Hilliard, Ohio, USA - JUN 12, 2005
12oz bottle - Pours golden just like the bottle says witha nice white head. Aroma is mostly of yeast a touch of lemon and spice. The flavor contains notes of lemon, bannanna, cloves, corriander along with the bready dough flavor that I picked up in the aroma. The alcohol is covered quite well in this one. It was a tasty brew!!

Very strong beer. The light color will fool anyone that doesnít know better. A little too sweet, but still very good.

bottle. golden colour, medium white head. There isnít as much fruity character in the aroma as Iíd like to see in a tripel. some lemon notes and spritzy carbonation. body is fruitier than the nose along with notes of cookies. lively carbonation. decent for an american tripel but doesnít really blow me away.

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 thatís 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.
