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.

UPDATED: JUL 23, 2003 this is an awesome tripel style beer. golden in color, nice palate with good carbonation. great spicey, fruity taste...bannana stands out...alcohol is very well hidden but comes through nicely in the finish. one of my favorite tripels. check it out.

McWhite (108) - Sinking Spring, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 2, 2003
The color is true to its name. The aroma was floral/spicy/something. Tasted much like it smelled, with a bit of an alcohol taste added in. Not too bad, but I doubt that I'll be buying this regularly.

Nice golden orange color with a tight white head. Aroma is musty, a bit sour, fruity...grapefruit, orange, lemon. The flavor is a little sour, slightly hoppy, grapefruit, sweet lemon. Decent bubbly feel...semi-dry finish. Not that great.

beermatrix (1497) - Twin Cities, Minnesota, USA - JUN 29, 2003
UPDATED: DEC 26, 2003 Pours a nice golden orangey color with a heavy white loose frothy head about two fingers high, leaves minimal lace in strings. Smell is super nice floral aroma with good amounts of crispy citrus with a bit of spice. Taste is very smooth with complex layers of hard candy, bright citrus of lemon, orange, and grapefruit, with a sweet caramel malt backbone and a note of spiceyness. Feel is full bodied and solid. One hell of great offering of the style, impressive.

Murphy (1759) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JUN 27, 2003
UPDATED: SEP 10, 2006 Great hoppiness, plus the spiciness I like. Reminds me of a gran cru with the spices. Great beer, the best tripel I’ve had tonight. Good brewery. Rerate: Too alcoholic, too spicy, too carbonated.

Linc (739) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - JUN 21, 2003
This one was a bit of a weirdo, peach and banana aroma, very peachy flavour with an out of whack sourness on the finish. I'd not call this one a tripel exactly, it's more of a belgian specialty ale, too spicy and weird to be a tripel.

UPDATED: DEC 14, 2007 flowery nose, 18 carot color, apricot, date, raisen flavor. Actually reminds me more of a good Belgian double like Corsendonk Brown.

guzzler67 (1554) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - JUN 10, 2003
Golden appearance. Spicy, floral, herbal aroma. Honeyed, hoppy, spicy taste, with a hint of tart fruit. Interesting complexity. You have to appreciate the artistry of the brewer with this offering.

Bright gold color with a ton of visible carbonation. Sweet and spicy smell with some yeast as well. Sweet flavor with a little bit of fruit and honey in there. Full-bodied but very clean. Plenty of warming from the alcohol. Another solid beer from Victory.
