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.

Golden yellow in color, eggshell head. Alcohol yeast aroma. An excellent beer packing a lot of alcohol. Spicy and sweet....a bit too much candy sugar taste though....very bold and tastey.

Bottle. A very interesting beer! Golden, nice head. Average aroma...maybe half average golden ale, half Chimay White. Very sweet, effervescent and sparkling mouthfeel, typical Belgian triple flavor with a nice finish. Spicy. Very nice and interesting beer.

I find it difficult to rate a Victory brew so low, but I'm just not a fan of the Belgian-styled brews. I can tell that this is a fine ale for those who enjoy the style, though. Just a bit too far on the sweet side for my palate.

This one hits you and it hits you hard!Not for the faint hearted it is a bottle conditioned tripel.Lovely golden appearance, spicey and powerful it cries out to be drunk, preferably slowly so as you can appreciate its complexity. Strong but not overpowering it has subtle flavours that make it a highly recommended beer.

For the initial glass, 9/10 of this beer was head. The 1/10 was of an appealing orange color though. Orange citric, tingly yeast smacks the nose intermingled with an artificial smelling lemon-pine freshener twinge. Rather citric/acidic flavor with clouds of yeast and grass snippets as if thrown my a lawn mower. Sour alcoholic finish does not help.

Nice, smooth, slightly spicy. Very well balanced, world class beer. Very easy drinking for a higher alcohol beer.

duff (5484) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUL 26, 2003
This is an embarrassing attempt at a Belgian Tripel, laughable. Sweet, sweet bready malts, really sticky, toilet cleaner flavours, one dimentional and boring, i liked the yeast character though, but thats the only positive. The yeast tastes Belgian, but the rest of the beer doesn't, seems a bit out of place to me.

snoot (286) - Anaheim, California, USA - JUL 24, 2003
UPDATED: DEC 25, 2003 Pours a hazy yellow, not much head (which quickly disappears). Aroma is spicy with definite alcohol. Tons of stuff happening with the flavor, some apple flavor up front but then the alcohol and and yeast and malt come to the party. Very interesting.

rauchbier (3634) - Isle Of Beer, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - JUL 22, 2003
UPDATED: APR 25, 2004 Bottle conditioned. Amber gold colour, initialy good white head soon drops leaving thin cover, low to moderate condition. Aromas of honey, perfumy spice (possibly aniseed, despite it listing corriander on the label)), yeast and alcohol vapours but toward the end a slight suggestion of oxidation set in (but in a nice way). Soft and sweet in the mouth with honey, apple and yeast along with some hop flavour. Long finish with malt, spice and a dry chalkiness. I thought it more of a Dutch than a Belgian Tripel, which is good.

citrusy/wheaty nose, pours with a slightly cloudy golden hue with no head, spicy and yeasty flavour, coriander hints and a dry finish, interesting.
