COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
It has a very big head indeed - pour it gently - and a very clean palate, beginning with a dry, lightly citric fruitiness, and finishing with a distinctive and delicate, perfumy, hop character. Very light and fluffy in texture, giving little hint of its strength.

Bottle (from bitter Virtue, BBE 10/06). Initial yeasty aroma fades to peachy hops. Light with some sweetness and a drying hop finish.

Boutip (6214) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 10, 2006
Bottle: Poured a hazy yellow ale with a super huge white foamy head with great retention. Aroma of sweet fruit with some very perfumy hops and a distinctive yeast presence. Taste is a nice mix of sweet malt with a floral and sweet qualities to it, subtle spices presence with some interesting yeast signature with a somewhat dry finish. Body is a bit lighter then expected. Very nice example of the style.

I had to try a 2nd bottle after my first one was 4 months past the Best Buy date. It was much better the 2nd time. I was expecting something a little different they their other beers. Still very nice abbey ale.

Smells awesome. Aroma of vanilla and bitter hops. Nice tall, soapy head. Clowdy amber. Nice finish, which is very seet and floral. Not overly malty. Rules.

jefcon (1775) - Arlington, Virginia, USA - FEB 23, 2006
Nice, fine white head on the golden beer. Some orange and biscuit aromas: yeast and meal. Long nutty, malty finish. The hops make for a bright palate, and the beer has a vinuous champagnelike quality. Very complex and long. Good buttered toast malt and slightly bittering hops.

iratherbe (255) - Marlton, New Jersey, USA - FEB 7, 2006
Frothy fluffy luxurious head upon pour. Lacing builds up & holds up primo as expected. Gorgeous light yellow pale moon in color. Tastes of hints of vanilla masked & mixed with overtones of citrus & fruits. This was a good long lost cousin to revisit after some time apart. Can be enjoyed by a wide variety.

Hazey pale orange that was so full of floaties that it looked like a snowshaker. Aroma is citrussy with a flowery fruity taste.

miles and miles of sweet grass in a bottle. what i mean is, picture this: out in wind swept montana, when the winter forage is scarce and a bison wearily kicks back a layer of snow to reveal an untrampled golden tussock of bunch grass, this is how that grass must taste to a hungry bovine: honey sweet, crisp as celery, and delightfully nourishing. within this ale, under the blown snow of a frothy head-- a head as ermine white and full as the trim on st. nicks jacket-- lies my own winter nourishment in a bounty of pale yellow. bright as alberta barley, this tripel has some haze and a gritty wreath of particulate matter on the bottom. in fact, if there were any more chunk down along the punt, the beer would look like a salsa. the effervesence is sizzling at first, and some patience improves the palette. while waiting i ran my nose along the crown of foam finding the spoor of wintergreen and ginger, taffy and pear. with a feel of sparkling wine, the flavor is a goblet of brandy-warmed fruits beginning with apricot and anjou sweetness and ebbing slowly to pineapple and with a drying and bittering effect of woody cinnamon-- an effect also reminiscent of talcum and toothpaste, but lots nicer. like an old buffalo i chewed the cud right to the bottom, and stayed warm, content and dreamy on this winter night.

Bottle. Poured very blonde. Nice large white head that stayed during the whole beer. Wheat, citrus (mostly lemon) aroma to it. Very bitter to me. Not alot of different things going on with this brew. Very citrus, wheaty flavor to it. Finishes bitter. Not my favorite. But nice to have tried it.
