degbert (1200) - Austin, Texas, USA - JAN 12, 2013
Bottle. Pours a hazy gold-peach with a very sticky, very lacy, creamy head. Nose is white grape. Very sweet and fruity, with a bitter smoky undertone; the finish is very unpleasant. I just don’t care for this.

blankboy (6277) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 11, 2013
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 (1597) - 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.

thooper41 (548) - BELGIUM - JAN 3, 2013
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.
