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.

Coltrane (108) - South Carolina, USA - JUL 21, 2009
Way too hot and overly spicy. A Tripel that is more of a punch in the face than a slow sipper.

willisread (2281) - Tokyo, JAPAN - AUG 29, 2016
Bottle from Mitsuya. Pours a clearish gold with a finger of foam that dissipates fairly quickly. Faint honey aromas with grass, light booze and cloves. Sweet on the palate with tons of clover honey. Not sticky, but borderline cloying. More honey towards the finish with clove, nutmeg and peppercorns. Not bad, but completely sugary and missing the nuance that the Belgians nail.

Sigmund (6646) - Tau, NORWAY - AUG 25, 2016
355 ml bottle, Cardinal Pub & Bar, Stavanger. ABV is 9.5%. Golden colour, huge white head. Sweetish aroma of white kandij sugar syrup, newmown grass, herbs and mild spices. Medium sweet and yeasty flavour, again with notes of white kandij sugar, also fairly distinct notes of black and white peppercorn, noticeable hops in the finish. Not a bad beer, but a bit too sugary.

JacksonCR (12) - Providence, Rhode Island, USA - AUG 8, 2016
Possesses a beautiful and delicate golden body with a fluffy white head. The aroma is faintly sweet and a bit yeasty and malty. The taste is a delicious mix off spice and sweet grains.

Golden color. Fruity aromas, spices and yeast. Taste is heavily dominated by the yeast, some fruits, spice, citrus and alcohol. Slight bitter finish. Very heavy and filling.
