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.

Poured with a great thick white foamy head that will not stop rising :)I’ve taken several sips of the head just to keep it from coming over the rim of the glass.Caronation is HUGE,champagne like,aroma is fruity,slightly spciy with a definite yeast character.Mouthfeel warms with alcohol which is almost burning with the combination of spiciness( I feel dizzy after just two sips).Fruity,bitter not as sweet as I expected,dry,floral hop character.

The aroma is a little weak, the appearance is a rich golden color with lots of sediment. Good full flavor, you can taste the alcohol along with a fruity kick, and ’exotic’ spices that I cant realy pin down, but rater enjoy. I dont tend to like such light bodied beer, but this one is quite good.

Very good belgian, alittle on the carbonated side if served at cellar temperature. Amazing flavor and strength for its light appearance.

I had one of these on an empty stomach, not a good idea. This is a wonderful beer with lots of kick. This beer stands tall in the likes of the better Bavarian beers. Loads of flavor and easy to nap after having one.

golden beer, tons of yeast floating in it. Yeast, wheat aroma. Initial sweet, and strong alcohol, warms the tounge. This is a complex beer, fruit, spices. Beer is strong and warms me up quite nicely. Feels like having a nice mixed drink. Excellent beer

Despite sitting placidly in my fridge for a couple of days, beer erupted upon being opened. Unfortunately, substantial loss of a great beer. Great corriander, complex aroma. Alcohol apparent in the finish and the warm feeling it left behind. I wouldn’t want to have more than one. Near perfect palate. Highly suggested.

Filtered gold color with an aroma of sour yeast. Gentle and innocuous flavor that moves into a sour and somewhat unpleasant aftertaste that’s vaguely reminiscent of sauerkraut. I was not all that impressed, especially since the aftertaste stood out to me far more than the flavor of the beer.

argo0 (11452) - Washington DC, USA - MAY 3, 2002
Golden with a big head, this beer has a mild, sweet Belgian aroma. It has a very sweet flavor, slightly cloying. Hard to imagine having more than one.

More of a belgian strong than a triple. VERY sweet. Both malt and candi sugar present. A little to unbalanced.
