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.

Golden, thin head. Aroma from yeast and tea. Flavor is yeasty and also btings some sour milk. Not my kind of beer.

Crockett (1116) - Southampton, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 18, 2004
Nice bottle! Huge white head. Light gold and cloudy. Very busy carbonation. Grassy citric aroma lots of floral notes. Some wheat beer character although very bold and spiced. Bread crusts stand out. Mild apple and just the lightest caramel. It was very satisfying. Different from a lot of tripels I have had. But, easily one of the best.

maltdog (621) - Colorado, USA - MAY 3, 2004
I carefully ease out the squeaky cork to a satisfyingly dramatic pop. Pours straw-colored and teeming with bubbles; one third beer and two thirds foam. Perfumey but restrained aromas of spice, citrus, old barn and white pepper, and American pilsner. Light honeyed and malty sweetness leads to coppery, floral, earthy/herbal, and mellow yeast flavors. Palate starts creamy and fluffy, ends lightly buttery. Disappointing sour metallic taste, corny and grainy, concentrated megaswill; is this brewed with maize? Additional pours from the 750ml botle are exactly the same as the first. Starts like a decent Belgian, ends like budlite. I agree with DarkElfs rating, below.

slightly hazy gold, white head. flowery yeasty notes in the nose with honey, spicy pepper and bicuity malt. slight citrus in the flavour with nice balance between the spicy yeast and bitterness.

jeffc666 (1984) - Fairfax, Virginia, USA - APR 27, 2004
Clear pale golden with an enormous pillowy pure white head. The aroma is very nice, a mix of yeast, perfume and fruit. The flavor follows in the footsteps of the aroma, flowery and fruity. The hops are subdued but the sweetness is not over powering. Medium light dry body. A very nice beer, especially given how hard it would be to hide a flaw in this light beer. The 7.5% ABV is a shock to me, well hidden!

AndersR (196) - rhus, DENMARK - APR 16, 2004
33cl bottle. Pale Yellow with extremely huge and lasting head. Aroma is fruity (citrus) and very flat acidic and yeasty. After an interresting aroma, the taste was a bit dissapointing, but the reward comes seconds later when a complex and very refreshing mixture of citrus, hoppy balanced bitternes and a distant acidic flatness. The taste goes on and on.. A very well balanced beer!

rlgk (18841) - Gteborg, SWEDEN - APR 15, 2004
Golden/yellow with a bubbly head. Has a yeasty and malty aroma that also brings some sweet fruit. Flavor is yeasty as well allows some malt to comer through. Some metal is there as well. Not the best of belgians...

PetetheMeat (621) - Hove, DENMARK - APR 11, 2004
Pale gold, slightly hazy. White head with some laces. High Carbonation. Sweetish flavour with vague traces of yeast. Fruit (pear, green apples?). Perfumy undertones (hops?). Floral. The palate is soft, despite of the rather hard carbonation. Overall a very good tripel indeed.

Radek Kliber (7276) - Toronto (Can) Krotoszyn (Pol), POLAND - APR 9, 2004
Pleasant sweet, malty, yeasty aroma, some flowers. Thick white head, cloudy bright. Very clean, drinkable, yeasty. Nice clean aftertaste. Nice tripel with soft clean palate.

DarkElf (3061) - La Jolla, California, USA - APR 5, 2004
Lightly sweet and moderately spicy, but is generally only mildly flavorful; Faint orange-citrus flavor lurks in the background, and there is also a slight amount of coriander present as well; The beer lacks complexity, with the beer being fairly one-dimensional and staying consistent in flavor from start to finish; Fairly carbonated mouthfeel and medium bodied for a tripel; The aroma is faintly spicy, but pretty light in general; Pale golden in color is similar to a pilsener, but is moderately hazy; The white head is easily an inch tall with fairly good retention that is aided by the steady flow of carbonation bubbles; Very little lacing
