3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: FEB 5, 2009 Batch 114. Pours with a large, off-white creamy head and a murky yellow body. Aroma of orange zest, honey, yeast and spice. Taste is sweet, spicy, and a bit of candied orange peel. Sharp bubbles and a dryish mouthfeel.
Notes from Batch 46 (1998 Bottle consumed in Feb. 2009): Hazy golden color with a generous white head. Aroma is sweet and bready. Notes of raisins and sherry covering up light spice. Hint of cardboard oxidation. Smells like a sherry dosed plain original donut. Taste is bready, sweet with notes of sherry. Mouthfeel is starting to show a little bit of thinning, but it is still pleasant. Light carbonation.
A lemony banana bread aroma. A golden body with a mild haze. Has a mild bitterness followed by a smooth sweet bread lemon taste. Warming and very friendly. Medium bodied with lingering pleasant taste. Incredible.. OnTheTrail (648) - Virginia, USA - JAN 20, 2018
Pours pale yellow, big white head. Aroma is passionfruit, guava, some honey, yeast. Taste is rich honey, a bit of tang, almost sweet. Mouthfeel is very smooth, surprisingly heavy for the appearance. Alcohol not evident. jb (3499) - Rochester, New York, USA - DEC 29, 2017
a bit musky, grainy notes, cloves and pepper. Peppery feel on the tongue. Clean, sharp, not as sweet and sticky as I'd prefer for the style. Lots of fine carbonation helps balance. Not much going on with the taste. Okay. Foxbush (2180) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - DEC 21, 2017
12 oz bottle 7th Beer of Christmas 2017 The ale poured a clear gold color with small white head and modest lacing. Complex aroma with bananas, yeast and citrus fruit. No bitterness but a yeasty taste. These ales do not agree with me. I know they are popular. The ale has a medium body with soft carbonation.

This is a cloudy golden ale that I recommend to anyone that has not tried it. Incredible price for what you are getting. A fruity yet distinguishing aroma that is incredibly smooth in taste. You will not regret the purchase.

Great tasting Belgian style beer! Delicious! What a pleasant surprise! Better than a lot of the Belgian beers I have tried. And made here in the USA! Well done! Adamsville (441) - Quebec, CANADA - OCT 12, 2017
Apparence : Dorée, peu trouble, gros col blanc, bonne rétention et laissant une belle dentelle. Carbonatation active. AMareng4 (1) - - SEP 9, 2017 does not count
Nez : Malt, coriandre, agrumes, léger miel, léger alcool, notes de poire après la vague plus phénolique.
Goût : Malt, coriandre, poire et agrumes dans une entrée fruitée et épicée. Amertume moyenne en finale avec les mêmes notes qui nous tiennent. Palais mi sucrée, mais finale bien sèche.
Sensation : Effervescence étonnamment douce, corps moyen, semi-huileuse, belle longueur.
Bref : Une Tripel qui touche toutes les notes de malt, de fruits, d’épices et d’alcool dans un liquide qui se laisse facilement boire. À la fois sucrée et sèche, il est indéniable que cette bière est bien réalisée.
Best tripel. Like the fruity tones instead of spices of others. Best of the best

Backlog, bottle in 09 with Sean and Patrick. Pours a hazy golden with 2 finger foamy white head. Notes are piney hops, delicate florals, plum, fig, grain, and spices. Some honey and dough in the smell as the beer warms. Medium bodied. Good one to split a few ways. jelly_prince-_- (1) - - AUG 13, 2017 does not count
It's fresh and almost whiney. You could taste the fruitiness but it still tastes like a beer. It hits fresh and has a aftertaste that is like a wave ...it comes and then it leaves. Smooth...Overall I recommend to get this beer again. The buzz is really fun. Just enough for a good time. Wouldn't drink this too fast since it did give me a buzz.
