a belgin triple with a very fine palate. pours golden into a glass with a white head that remains. fruity aroma combined with sweet flavor make a very pleseant beer. bubbles are very fine and tickle the throat more than other beers.

UPDATED: AUG 24, 2005 Bottle (330ml). In a Corsendonk tulip glass (of course!). Pours incredibly lively, watch out for masses of white head which goes rocky quickly, leave decent threads of lace behind; huge champagne-like bubling action lasts forever. Pours murky golden-orange, quite a few white yeasties, had to leave about 5% in bottle - dreaded dark yeasties! Aroma pleasant, yeast, dry white wine, a tang of sourness, apricots, hint of crisp malt and ashy hop. With a white=tip nose, I taste - wine, apricot, slightly tart, not very malty, with an oily texture on my tongue, quite complex (my bottle is better part of a year aged) - finishes hop-bitter, a bit of lemon zest at the end. Very nice, and I prefer the dark! Zeswaft (1773) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JUL 7, 2005
Surprisingly smooth and rich. great yeasty aroma and that traditional belgian taste. Perhaps i like the lower alcohol belgians so you dont get that weird alcohol sweetness. ericmc83 (207) - Arkansas, USA - JUL 6, 2005
Starts with a sweetish, fairly complex aroma that I appreciated more as I continued through the drink. I sensed the aroma and flavor of unsweetened herbal tea. I also got a slight hint of honey. Light bodied, carbonated mouthfeel. At one point I sensed some saltiness. There was a decent amount of floaties as well. Freakin’ huge head. You definitely have to take your time while pouring. alaskanwarren (286) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 4, 2005
Beautiful appearance. Awesome head and gorgeous golden/straw color. Aroma is yeasty and some general hops. Taste is very light, surprisingly so, and mostly the yeast shines through. Banana, lemon, spices. The body is light - again, moreso than I thought it would be. Finish is very clean, with some yeast and spices in the afterteaste. I’ve tried a lot of belgian beers, many of them triples, and I was very surprised at how crisp and spicy this one was. This is an impressive beer that doesn’t try to boast or be overbearing. Good stuff.

UPDATED: SEP 23, 2008 This one takes some patience to pour. HUGE long lasting white head complete with diamonds reflected in the light and a clingy lacing. Hazy thin yellow. A couple of suspended particles. Aroma is initially sweet, then melon and light peppery spice. Flavour is as the aroma advertised. The finish is lightly spicy. Surprisingly the body is a little thick. TipsyMcStager (1139) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 1, 2005
Pours with a massive white foamy head. Colour is golden yellow, highly carbonated. Spicy yeast aroma; pleasant, fruit notes, pepper. Moderate sweetness. Some hops, earthiness and a somewhat metallic finish. Farily smooth and light tasting. Happy Canada Day! roder60 (1289) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 1, 2005
Pours a transparent pale yellow with a massive, and I mean massive, amount of foamy white head that took 10 minutes to get down to normal amount. Tons of carbonation bubbles throughout the experience. Aroma is sweet malts, citrus fruit, hops, orange rind, and a bit of yeast. Beer is very light and crisp on the palate, mostly sweet but with some citrus notes and a slight pear/grapefruit taste. Overall, I found it to be a pretty decent tripel. r464 (2360) - Earth, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 29, 2005
Pale yellow/golden transparent color with a very strong, fizzy white head. Crisp and citrusy with an earthy-grassiness and a lean towards the hops. Very nice, and though you cannot sense the alcohol content directly, you somehow sense its strength. BeerAteHer (384) - St. Paul, Minnesota, USA - JUN 26, 2005
Ok white head & lacing and a few bubbles showing amidst the golden color. Aroma is like a rather straightforward witbeer with a faint touch of fruitiness. Flavor is more complex, with a strong, citrusy floral start, green-spicy middle (sage, pine etc.) and hoppy dry finish. As stated in Commercial Description this beer is very clean on the palate -- strong big-bubbled carbonation and a nice touch of alcohol. Though it seems to be pulling a bit to refer to Agnus as a pale ale, it’s a nice tripel nonetheless.
