UPDATED: JUN 16, 2008 The bottle says "Golden Ale", so I had something like Duvel in mind when I poured it. But its definately in the triple category. Orange, with a fluffy head. A lot of fruiy, yeasty smells and flavors, but maybe a bit too hot - it kinda turns into cough medicine. Certainly smells better than it tastes.

750, I believe this is what this was, a bottle at Real Ale, the end of the bottle given to me by Dr. Bill. Pours gold with a bright white ring. Nose was sweet and awesome. Taste is sweet and nice, and overall decent.

elcig (37) - Oliver Springs, Tennessee, USA - JUN 5, 2008
From a 750ml bottle. Pretty nice aroma of malt, spice and a bit of sweet fruit. Pours a nice golden color with an intense head that lasts and lasts with incredible lacing. Flavor isn’t quite as intense as I was hoping for, not bland but seems to be lacking a little something. Flavor is nice with touches of raisin and spicy fruit, just a bit of a bite at the finish. Overall a nice Tripel.

badlizard (5539) - Berkeley, California, USA - MAY 24, 2008
bottle from La Bodega. Golden with a foamy white head. Sweet fruity aroma. Semi sweet taste, straw, and a mildly dry finish.

afterglow (1047) - Florida, USA - MAR 12, 2008
Bottle. Pours a clear golden with a large fluffy white head that lasts leaving good lacing. Aroma of bubblegum, yeast spice, citrus, and sweet malt. Taste is the same as aroma. Medium mouthfeel with tingly carbonation, mild bitterness, and well hidden alcohol. Finishes dry and lightly spicy. A very good Tripel.

Poured with an unusually large head, blonde in color. Good flavor with a strong fruit presence. My friend found it in the same New Leaf Market in Tallahasse as the first review.

nick76 (4184) - Tampa, Florida, USA - DEC 13, 2007
The aroma is hoppy, malty, fruity, and yeasty. The appearance is golden with a nice sized head that leaves some lacing. The flavor is like the aroma. The palate is smooth. This is a good example of a Belgian.

PorterPounder (5379) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - OCT 26, 2007
Tallahassee, Fl. - New Leaf Market - 750 ml cage corked bottle. Medium golden pour, slightly murky, with a soft, silky white head, excellent lacing. Aroma is slightly lemony with hints of butter. Flavor is slightly fruity with hints of nectarines, some sweet cake mix notes, a buttery back end. Unusual hodgepodge to say the least. Mouthfeel is the highlight of this one - luxuriant and creamy with just a hint of spritziness. Alcohol hidden well. Unusual find for an organic co-op where I stick out like a sore thumb and only shop here for the beer.
