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.

Nice fruity slightly complex aroma. The taste is great. Nice smooth taste with virtually no alcohol flavor...It would be way too easy to have a few too many. Thanks Jayme.

1/14/02: As I thought the bottle that I drank the other night had real problems. This beer is a real treat. The aroma is fruity and wonderful, the taste is light, yet bold. An excellent version of a Belgian Triple. Thanks VENOM! 1/12/02: I’ve had this bottle for about 6 months. BOOM!! The bottle detonated upon opening. The beer that didn’t end up on my floor or in the sink tasted old and spoiled. However, it was the best spoiled beer I’ve ever had.

Wonderful yeasty, fruity aroma with banana present. Nice golden color with plenty of yeast floaties in the glass. Medium billowy white head that has some decent staying power. Fruity esters; deep strawberry, cherry and apricot up front. Coriander and other spices in the middle and a hop bite in the finish. Very well put together. Flavors blend perfectly providing an excellent tasting experience from start to finish.

Nice straw color,cloudy define hop aroma. Very complex and very tasty. Only slight drawback was the alcohol may have put a muzzle on some of the fruitiness.

The only dissappointment from another wise flawless brewery. A very awkward Belgian tripel. The after-taste was,... I hate to say, bad. I’ll take La Fin Du Monde or Bush 12%

UPDATED: JUN 2, 2007 Golden, very cloudy with suspended particles floating throughout, pretty cool to look at. Fantastic creamy head...HIGH carbonation...almost too much...actually should lower the score because of this. Spicy/fruity, yeasty aroma, maybe a bit of banana..very pleasant. Nice mouthfeel, medium body...excellent sweet malt character,the coriander is fantastic,hints of pineapple and banana finishes spicy and sweet with the alcohol blanacing it out. Very complex triple. Warming and a beer you should be careful with. A pretty smooth drinker(would never know it was 9.5%) and an awesome american version of a belgium triple.

Gold in color; Thinhead with good staying power and thin lace; Sweet hay in the nose. Nice and yeasty right away upfront. Reminfs me alot of Chimay White. Fun mouthfeel- small amounts of apricot. Smoothness hides the alcohol well. Hit my head about halfway through the glass. Unbeleivably smooth. Thank you JSTU9.

This is an interesting beer. Not Victory’s best, but one of their better. Well worth trying. Might be too sweet for some, but I like it.
