Bottle [750ml]. Pours a clear, very bubbly gold with a huge diminishing fizzy/rocky white head. Aroma of Belgian yeast, light grassy hops, bready malt, sweetness and some spices. Flavour of Belgian yeast, pepper, grassy hops, alcohol, a bit of honey and a dry slightly bitter finish. Slightly overcarbonated to me. As I mentioned, there’s some alcohol present but not 9.3%. Medium bodied. Pretty good and enjoyable Tripel. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

pootzboy (1586) - Hawgville, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 10, 2013
A bottle conditioned triple which pours a pale clouded gold. Massive meringue head. Lively natural carbonation. Aroma is pleasing - spics, apricot, sharp hop tones, earthy mustiness. Flavout is bright, fruity, spritzy, some complexity midnpalate and a long drying sharp hoppy finish with yeasty tones. Really nice drinking.

Smelt of bread, dough, alcohol, citrus and tasted about the same too. Very nice beer. I would definitely buy this beer again.

750 mL bottle: Appearance is golden brown with slow fading white head. Aroma is of stale malt. Taste is of stale malt and hardly Belgian. Honestly think this could be my least favorite Belgian brew.

kevinsenn (1057) - Waterloo, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 27, 2012
750mL bottle from LCBO. Pours clear and golden with a foamy 1-inch head. Aroma is typical Belgian spicy yeast. Taste is quite sweet - sweet malt, slight spice and alcohol. Fine, but nothing too special.

robinvboyer (3067) - Sturgeon Falls, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 26, 2012
Clear golden pour, huge rocky white head. Soft yeasty aroma, sweet sugars, pears and apples. Body is a little thin, carb is way over the top. Finish is very light on the bitterness. Mineral and metallic aftertaste.

The beer poured a slightly hazed golden colour with a thin rocky white head and plenty of effervescence. The aroma is yeast, light fruits, honey, and grains. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with mild carbonation. The flavour has honey sweetness, yeastiness, grains, and citrus. Not bad.

Radek Kliber (6386) - Toronto (Can) Krotoszyn (Pol), POLAND - DEC 17, 2012
Bottle 750ml
Aroma: Belgian yeast , tad salty , softer end with golden malts as backing.
Look: golden, hazed look with off white top. Some lace. 4-
Taste/palate: Lighter ,slightly salty , thinner in body with softer backing. Some alcohol dryness with heat. Good but tad too thin. I know its Belgian ale so its not all malts but here some body would do good. late green apple with cellar notes.
