3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a clear straw gold with a thin pure white cap that clings lightly to the glass. The aroma is some yeasty esters, belgian brewing sugar, basement, feild, lemon, light floral and herbal hops. The flavour is herbal, light lemon, brewing sugar, yeasty esters, pepper. Nice foamy/smooth mouth feel carries the flavours across well.

Pour leaves a hazy unfiltered look. Pour doesnít really settle well. Oily texture with sweet flavor. The appearance was offputting. Found it difficult to get past all the "floaties" in my mug. Overall, the taste was okay. Good beer, but didnít quite make my recommended list.

An odd duck. Pours clear golden with huge foamy head and lots of lacing. Nose is yeast and apple. Aromas are same plus some light pepper and maybe a hint of rye. Taste is light sweet with a longer bitter finish. Mouth is very heavily carbonated. Ok, but not the tripel I expected.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Single brown, wine-looking, bottle from the LCBO with a cork and cage. Pours a shinning golden colour with a big soapy head that fizzes away slowly and gives a bit of foam lacing. Mild aromas of spices (cloves, coriander), Belgian Ale yeast, apples and light citrus (oranges mostly). Smooth mouthfeel with a nice balance between oily and creamy. No burning at all and just slight warming. The taste is pretty fruity at first, but does calm down with time. Citrus, apples with the spices and nicely balanced bitterness, which creates a little dryness. Maybe not a full Tripel, but has a lot of the guts of one. A decent brew from the cauldron.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle: Poured a hazy bright golden color ale with a super large foamy head with good retention and some great lacing. Aroma of fruity ester with peppery yeast and sweet Belgian style malt notes are quite nice. Taste is a mix between some fruity ester and peppery yeast with some rustic Belgian malt notes with light residual candi sugar notes. Body is fuller then average with good carbonation and no apparent alcohol. Well brewed and enjoyable without re-writing the style.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
This has sentimental value as my husband and I drank it on our first wedding anniversary- which was before we were rating. Its not available in our area, so we bought it when we ran across it on vacation.
Bottle. Hazy honey color with frothy cream head and generous lacing. The aroma reminds me partly of wine and partly of bread and maybe a little of hard candy. Very sweet. Whew a little too sweet for my current tastes- though I remember us both liking it before. Oh, wait, there is a tinge of hop at the end.

From the bottle poured a lovely golden brew with a huge, fluffy head. Aromas of malt and vanilla. Medium bodied with a rich, malty, vanilla flavor with a little hop finish at the end tha lingers.
