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.

Hazy golden pour, thick and dense white head, slowly diminished and left good lace. Aroma is pretty big, yeasty, grassy and apple dominate. Flavor is equally big & sweet, apple, banana, some orange and lemon, and hints of spices. Mouthfeel is quite full, minimal alcohol presence detected towards the end.

Golden yellow with a large frothy white head. Smells skunky and metallic banana. Taste sweet and rotting garbage.

microdyke (360) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAY 10, 2003
A light golden color with a small head. The aroma is floral, slightly sour with bananas. The flavor is of banana and spices...clove. A little bitter form the yeast in suspension. Nice, strong and delicious. My kind of beer.

Cobra (1100) - - MAY 4, 2003
This 750ml. bottle was part of the famous 9/12/02 bottling batch that got infected and recalled. I've got a monkey on my back. A cheeky little golden monkey. Poured this in my favorite tulip beer glass, it came out a light yellow color with a 1" head on it. Slowly subsided to a broken lace with yeast clumps floating in it. First taste was like someone put lemon juice in beer. Literally sour, but not vinegary. Subdued maltiness with good hops balance to the malts. Tasty, without being cloying. Spritzy, full of life. Slight chill haze to it, probably from being too cold. A very tasty little beer that hides it's alcohol level well. I contacted Victory brewing, and got a V-12 to replace this infected beer. If Victory doesn't get their act together, and stop producing infected beers, I'll quit drinking anything they produce, period.

aracauna (3252) - Georgia, USA - MAY 3, 2003
UPDATED: NOV 19, 2003 Surprisingly pale. Bright golden hue catches the light nicely.Wimpy head. You expect more from a tripel.Excellent effervessance keeps me from knocking too much off.Looks like a dark pilsner. Distinct clove and wheat flavors and aroma. Hints of bubblegum. As it warms, it gains some cheesey notes.

Bottled. Nice American version of a tripel. Had a good citrusy tase to it. Hid the alcohol pretty well.

Trappist (286) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - APR 28, 2003
Not at all what I was expecting especially for an Abbey Triple. Overly citrus, however it had the Victory nose that I have come notice. The alcohol is warming and the beer is fairly carbonated with a white frothy head, the spices in the beer are noted, but I just expected something with a little more umph in flavor, because if you carbonate orange juice and through in some alcohol you would be getting close to this stuff. It was a good beer but dissapointing.

gsmitty80 (2011) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 26, 2003
UPDATED: FEB 10, 2005 What an excellent beer. Hints of a slight pear flavour which is quickly masked by the high alcohol content of this wonderful brew.

winterlager (101) - Orchard Park, New York, USA - APR 19, 2003
Has a nice mix of flavors but there is just something about this that isn't winning me over. To me it is not a very smooth. It is just lacking something..this is the first Victory beer that I haven't fell in love with after the first sip. Nice for something different, but maybe after having a few more it will do something for me.

MAP (1133) - Lakewood, Ohio, USA - APR 17, 2003
UPDATED: AUG 7, 2003 Clowdy golden color with nice foamy head. Smells of spice, yeast and malty sweetness. Tastes sweet all the way through, with only a slight hint of alcohol in it.
