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.

Syd (921) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JAN 30, 2004
Bottle pours a hazy golden color with a small short lived head and short lived lace sheets. The aroma is slightly yeasty and slightly sour. The flavor is of alcohol, sweet malt, sort of spicy, slightly yeasty, and of light hops. The body is fairly rich. Overall, I prefer many of the same style, but this is a good effort worthy of a good score.

SpringsLicker (3251) - Tennessee, USA - JAN 23, 2004
UPDATED: JUL 17, 2004 The head came and went quickly on this clear yellow beer. Yeasty aroma with citrus and spice in there too. Sweetly acidic, this light bodied brew was softly carbonated with a finish that was a little drier. Slight alcohol as well.

Frank (3333) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JAN 23, 2004
Golden with a thick haze of sediment and almost no head. Spicy floral/honey aroma. Soft, mild carbonation. Slightly tart with a vinous note accentuated by a mild alcohol presence. Notes of banana, pear, and lemon. Smooth, rich mouthfeel. A top-notch tripel.

badgerben (4608) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - JAN 21, 2004
Pours a solid golden color with little head. Watch the yeast at the bottom of the bottle! Good aroma of hops and spice, same for the taste. I was expecting something pretty high and mighty from a Victory tripel, but it didn't quite live up to what I thought it'd be. Still good.

Very strong triple ale with a nice subtle hint of some spices. Good beer but I wouldn't drink too many at 9.5%

3fourths (8593) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JAN 20, 2004
UPDATED: DEC 19, 2012 A bright yellow with a medium sized white head. Sweet brown sugar and peach aroma with a suprising biting fruity sting when first tasted... knocked me back in my seat. Cloying towards the end... with a residual sweetness that is nice... overall it’s just way too sweet, but still drinkable in small portions.

Pigfoot (2268) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JAN 20, 2004
There's much I admire about this bottle: the design, the name, the beautiful beer inside, and all it's yummy parts... Pours a hazy, ripe orange color, with huge chalk-white foam that surely slides down to size. Aroma, yeast, citrus, spice aplenty, candi sugar, a sly sweetness, a dry, complex fruit factor. Taste: hops dazzle the tongue. pervading the palate, quickly coating every bit of the mouth with sugary, spicy goodness. Just enough malty heft in the mouthfeel, just right citric fruit to satisfy, with an elusive otherwordliness found in the better tripels out there. Medium body, long, tasty finish, never quite quitting the mouth. A lot of pleasure to be found here, and I'll find myself returning again and again.

stasyh (4) - USA - JAN 18, 2004 does not count
I've never had beer with herbs floating in it before, but this one had pieces. It was kinda funky because of that, but tasty. A little to hoppy, but not over bearing. I prefer something dark and malty. It was different from any other beer, worth drinking again.

[Vintage 2000] Infected. [Vintage 2002] Hazy golden coloured. Yeasty. Sweet/bitter and fruity.

MaiBockAddict (1497) - Good Beer Bar Deprived, New Jersey, USA - JAN 13, 2004
The 750 ml bottle version, from March, 2003. Pours clear with floaties, nice white head. Fruity, candi-like aroma. Malty, sweet flavor, backed pleasantly up with a touch of alcohol. This has had some time to mellow, and may have helped. Enjoyable and a must for tripel finatics.
