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.

Phenolic, sweet malty aroma. Opaque yellow with shy white head. Sweet, fruity, candy sugar with decent bitterness toward the finish and lasting sweetness. Body is smooth with good carbonation. Bottle (sampled at Mondial 2004).

hopdog (10285) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 7, 2004
Poured a medium golden color with a small white head. Aromas of spices and fruits. Sweet, spicy and fruity tasting. Somewhat of a light alcohol flavor and aftertaste but not near the 9.5%. I enjoyed this beer (and from a local brewery a plus!).

Now that’s a good one !! Golden color, medium head with a light mouthfeel and flavor. Great job hiding the alcohol taste. Spice and other thing for the flavor .. This is a really good one.

AlabastorJones (814) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JUN 5, 2004
Flowery fruit aroma, thin white head, mirky golden body, strong alcohol flavor, very sweet and syrupy, banana, pretty good, but maybe a bit too sweet.

12oz. Bottle. Nice fruity and spicy aroma. Pretty golden yellow color. Spicey and sweet flavors that lead into a warming finish. Very nice.

The Tubes must have had her in mind when they sang, "She’s a beauty - why would I lie? One in a million girl" I wouldn’t classify this as a trippel, more generically like a Belgian Golden. That isn’t because of lack of interest. Fantastic fruity and dense aroma, with the yeast right there. The flavor was a little subdued, but beautifully blended. This bottle must’ve aged. The finish had some candy to it, lacking dryness of a tripel (a plus to me)Victory it is!

Pours a hazy apple juice color with a medium fizzy white head that dissipates fast. Not an uncommon nose for a tripel, banana, clove, spice, vanilla. Mmmm Nice peppery spicy start, with some carbonation to add a little more excitement to the palate. Yeasty dry finish. Alcohol is hidden marvelously, this is an exceptional beer.

Don’t share this with friends, keep it all to yourself! Not only will your nose be bombarded with aromas,(spices,bananna,vanilla,and dozens of other things)but your mouth will experence an orgasm! But, be for warned, this beer’s 9.5% will send your head spinning after 2 or 3.

This "spiced beer" has a golden color with a lasting head. Appearance is slightly cloudy. Spices have subtle aroma and flavor enhancements, but a slightly yeasty aftertaste. You could taste the alcohol.

Bottle: I really didn’t know what to expect with this one and I couldn’t believe how good it was. The 9.5% alcohol was totally hidden, without reading the bottle I would have thought I was drinking a beer with 4-5%. Very nice hazy golden color to this beer. Aroma: fruit, spice, hops, vanilla, banana. Flavor: fruit and spice balanced with malt and yeast and some honey and herbs. Medium body, gentle carbonation, with a slightly sweet finish. Another excellent brew from Victory.
