Poured a yellow color just darker than I would call a white. Hazy beer with a small off white head. Smells like sour bread and maybe some oats. Taste is suprising. A lot more sour than I would have expected. Slight lemon flavor. It leaves a slight bitter coating on the tongue. I am not a huge fan of Belgian styles and this one hasn’t given me anything that would change my mind. thebaldwizard (1365) - Ohio, USA - FEB 24, 2007
Yeast, and light lemon scents in the aroma--along with some bread. Golden in color with an off-white head. Full palate for a tripel. Sweet malt flavors with some yeast and a very light citrus presence. Not bad for a tripel. spector (906) - Lancaster, Ohio, USA - FEB 21, 2007

UPDATED: JUN 24, 2007 Nothing much in common with real tripels...but very good in and of itself. Big fruity/yeasty profile in both nose and flavor. There is a very strong apple cider thing going on here, too. Big ABV is virtually invisible. The malty sweetness anchors the whole thing. But there really is ZERO hop presence here...which I think is where they stray from style. But I love these guys anyway...and I’ll be stopping by again very soon!

Bottle from Dark Horse. Sweet & fruity smell while pouring. Starts out light, but darkens in my snifter to a darker pils color with a Bell’s-like crowd of floaties. Refreshing sourness, more Berliner than brett, touch of white wine driness. An excellent drink. Don’t know that it’d stand well next to a real Trappist Ale, but this is something I could drink every day.

Bottle from Sprinkle. Pours a very hazy straw color with some hints of orange. Slightly sweet grainy aroma. Nice scent of yeast somewhat like a hefe. Slightly sweet and spicy yeasty flavors of front, bit of grain. Finish is a little sweet at first and finishes slightly bitter with some alcohol. detroiter (958) - Euphoria, Minnesota, USA - JAN 15, 2007
Pours a hazy straw golden amber, topped by a good inch of soft white foam. Very good head retention, lacing is no big deal. A little sweet bread dough in the aroma.
Very sweet beer up front with lots of caramel and honey. It also has some sweet breadiness, vanilla, cork, and a fruity spiced-apple character to it. Medium full body, gentle carbonation. A bit of a warming alcohol kicker in the finish, and a bit more in the aftertaste.

Bottle. Yellow orange pour with no real head to speak of. Aroma ofyeast, orange zest, a bit of coconut, and banana. Flavors of Candied fruit, light malt, yeast and orange zest. Kind of a syrupy body...small amount of carbonation and finishes sweet. Not bad, but it really missed some elements that would’ve made it better beerbuzzmontreal (3486) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 5, 2007
Cloudy golden pour with a ting of white lace on top of it. Very appealing aroma of yeast and citrus. The flavor is good, the yeast and citrus complement each other. The texture is dry and powedery while the body is light and the carbonation is gentle. A good, well-done tripel. sliffy (2040) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JAN 4, 2007
Bottle: Yellow gold with a white head. Aroma, light fruits, some yeast, bananas. Flavor, light bready malts, yeasty. A medium carbonation. Not bad, but nothing I would seek out again.
