clear yellow, large smooth white head. swoopjones (7020) - Buffalo, New York, USA - JAN 31, 2011
very nice belgian, but actually mainly citrussy yeasty aroma. very refreshing.typically belgian, and for contreras, typically very refreshing aroma. nice job.
flavor is faint citrussy bitter herbal hoppy flavor dominates unfortunately, still a good belgian, but it is a little bit of a letdown from the aroma. flavor is very dry, very tight, very belgian. very carbonated and bubbly, anyway- a tight super-dry tripel, that tastes really well.
bottle, blue Monk, Buffalo, NY. lighter to medium golden pour. sweet maltiness, bubble gum, not overly sweet but a drier tripel. Nice fruitiness, almost more Belgian blonde like. Not necessarly a bad thing. 8.5% hidden pretty well. Nice Drake (14108) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 5, 2011
11.2 ounce bottle from Wine Warehouse in Charlottesville. VA. Pours a hazy straw yellow color with a large froth white head. Good head retention and lacing. Aroma of big fruity notes, including pineapple, other tropical fruit notes, citrus, and some toasted grain. The taste is sweet bready notes, candi sugar, banana, citrus and other fruits, a bit of spice and bubblegum. Medium-full bodied. Nice beer. Frank (4240) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JAN 3, 2011
This is a slightly hazed golden beer w/ a big foamy head. Sweet banana hits the nose first and is followed up w/ some delicate floral notes, a bit of cut grass and a bit of gypsum board sawdust. This is strikingly bitter when it first hits the palate, sort of green and earthy to the extent where it initially seems to drown out whatever else is going on. Similarly, the initial bit of carbonation on the tongue seems a bit strong but as you ease your way into the beer, it reveals a creamy back end that is really works well. Some sweet citrus notes come out with a bit of banana and a slight herbal note. This might not stand up to the very best of the style but it is a damn decent tripel.

330 ml bottle. Citrus and honey malt aroma, spicy, ok hops, grass. Golden with orange and a tall, fluffy head. Sweet, fruity flavor, bready, with honey and citrus. Quite spicy, with cinnamon and quite a lot of ginger. Spice is a bit much. Light bitterness. interesting tripel, but a bit too heavy, sweet, and spicy.

Very sweet, lightly oxidized, lots of cookie dough, light bitterness. Full and thick but nasty mouth feel. Unbalanced and off-flavoured.
Poured into a sniffer glass from the bottle. Pours a hazy hay orange body. Aromas of yeast, malt, little bit of spice, little bit of fruit. Flavor is a nice dry fruit and yeast flavor up front that fades into a barely noticable hop finish. bhensonb (15857) - Woodland, California, USA - SEP 25, 2010
Bottle from Monument in Concord, CA. Pours hazy gold with a foamy 4 finger off-white head. Strong spice aroma. More veg than pepper. Suggestions of kandi. Medium body with very foamy carbonation. Flavor is light malt with a strong spice/pepper flavor. Smells veg, tastes pepper. There’s a lingering sweetness throughout. Lightly so. Finishes pretty balanced. Sugar and pepper to be crude. There’s a lot going on in this one. altonbrownd (5897) - Chevy Chase, Maryland, USA - SEP 10, 2010
On tap at Moeder Lambic. Bold yellow with tall head. Popcorn nose. Nice taste of fruits, gember, oranges and malts. Very smooth and clean. Enjoyable.
