Darker golden color. Frothy white head lasts forever. Fruity, caramely aroma and flavor. Some brown sugar syrup taste mixed in with all that fruit and malt. Very smooth. Medium carbonation.

Bottle thanks to bu11zeye. Hazy gold in color with a good sized white head. Aroma is heavy in banana with coriander and yeast. Taste is of coriander, banana, yeast and light citrus.

chinchill (4422) - South Carolina, USA - NOV 17, 2012
Pours a cloudy straw-gold with a sizable, frothy, off-white head. Leaves about as much lacing as Ive ever seen in a beer of this style. The yeasty-bready-fruity-grassy smell is paired with a yeasty-wheaty-fruity taste that is more sour than sweet. Both the aroma and the flavor have somewhat lower levels of banana and clove than those found in many Belgian blondes. Hints of coriander and lemon. Light-medium body, if a bit fuller than average for style. The carbonation is a bit aggressive. Overall: OK, but a step down in quality from their excellent Brune.

nick76 (4379) - Tampa, Florida, USA - MAR 3, 2011
The aroma is spicy and floral with candy, incense, malt, and citrus. The appearance is slightly cloudy gold with a foamy head. The taste is like the aroma. The palate is smooth and the finish is hot. The beer is decent overall but not a favorite.

Cavie (4321) - Arlington, Texas, USA - JUL 26, 2011
Bottle courtesy drowland. Pours a light hazy golden color. Fizzy white head. Aroma is Belgian fruit, yeast and bready notes. Flavor is lightly sweet, big bready notes, easy grain that leaves a tingle over the palate. Decent finish, not bad.

Spicy with a bit of honied sweetness. Clear yellow with a light body. Crisp flavor, almost pilseneresque. Tried with Dave and Jess at the Bruges Bierfest in 2012.

thegreenrooster (4086) - St.louis, Missouri, USA - FEB 12, 2011
Pour is a hazy blonde with an average white head. Aroma is fruity with a bit of lavender. Flavor is a dull malt with some fruitness toward the end. A citrus aftertaste is left on the tounge as this goes down. Kinda weak for a tripel still it has a few things going for it. Much better out there.

Butters (4049) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - SEP 22, 2010
Pours a hazy dull yellow with small white foam head with small suspended particulate. Wonderful banana and bubblegum nose. Unfortunately, the flavor doesnt hold up. Yeasty, and bready, and sweet candi sugar. Very high carbonation. Nice though.

I had been looking forward for a chance to try this new (to me) Tripel for a couple weeks before I got a chance to get to it in my cellar so I was somewhat alarmed when it exploded unceremoniously over my countertop when I popped the cap. The beer remaining was cloudy orange golden in color and capped by a long lasting head of largish bubbles. The nose is quite spicy and bready. I am not really pulling cloves or anything specifically, just a general spicy warmth and a bit of banana-like juiciness. It is kind of nice but there is a bit of a metallic undertone that comes out more once tasted. The palate is kind of sticky and sluggish, oily and lacking the creamy carbonation that makes the best big Belgians great. Gushing aside, this is a pretty disappointing Belgian in general.
