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.

Subdued aroma, good lacing, nice spice: clove, butterscotch, banana and apple tones. Was almost too sweet.

UPDATED: AUG 21, 2011 I have been in love with this beer for some time now. As I have it more and more it becomes my beer of choice for I find it satisfying no matter what mood I am in. My beer fridge now never goes with out some of this fine beer. +++ Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle with a funky label, this beer pours a dark golden color with a medium sized white head that quickly dissipates. It is cloudy and has floaters. Sweet and spicy scent. There is a light nutty flavor and a spicy aftertaste. The front end flavor is very strong and has a nice fruity element - almost pear and apricot. . This is a very nice American tripel. A true classic! Redone 8/2007 - the more recent batches of this beer have slipped in quality. There is more of a tangy off flavor and the alcohol has become more noticable. This used to be a 5.0 beer for me but has slipped in my esteem.

Brewso (238) - Mt Kisco, New York, USA - MAR 14, 2004
I love this beer. The sweet malt and spices work very well together. I can see how the corrianderish spices might get in the way for some belgian purists but it works for me. I would really like to try this on tap.

haddon90 (1561) - Costa Mesa, California, USA - MAR 13, 2004
Cloudy golden color. Slim white head. Not like every other Belgian Beer I've had. Some wheat and honey in the aroma, as well as the taste. Overally, pretty decent. Bought this 12 oz bottle from Beers of the World in Rochester, NY.

HopasaurusRex (195) - Glen Ellyn, Illinois, USA - MAR 10, 2004
Another nice beer from Victory, but it just doesn't measure up to the real begians. Still enjoyable, but doesn't have the effervesence, the aroma or lovely finish of a true belgian tripel, but an enjoyable beer still.

EdPaulsen (117) - Rochester, New York, USA - MAR 8, 2004
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 (376) - 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.
