@ a tasting, Thanks David, pours pale yellow with a nice white head, aroma of herbs, yeast, apricot and notes of coriander, flavors of cherries, marmalade, clove, strong menthol and some cooked vegetables, finishes bitter sweet, medium bodied. YK23 (465) - Haifa, ISRAEL - JAN 21, 2010
Bottle: earthy, meaty, dusty, yeasty, some forest like mustiness, some phenols/hospital smell and flavour, mouthwash, a little herbal, wild mushrooms in the finish, quite interesting triple. ectuohy27 (1308) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - DEC 7, 2009
Excellent appearance and robust finish make this better than average, but watery mouthfeel and thin texture are a letdown on a $12/bottle beer Jine (903) - Nutley, New Jersey, USA - NOV 17, 2009
Really a very impressive and quenching tripel from Defiant. Hit all the right notes for me while keeping the alcohol heat down. Thumbs up BiddleBrau (1238) - Fort Washington, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 22, 2009
750 ml bottle that popped and gushed. Took about 30 minutes to get a pint poured. Big big big fluffy egg-white head. Yellow and hazy. Spicy nose. Very spicy bite on the tongue, crisp, long lasting. Horse-blanket, grassy and dry and tart on the sides of the tongue. A bit watery but not distractinly so. Overcarbonation may create the extra bite.

Boom. These bottles are exploding everywhere. Watch your eyes. Overly carbonated. Aroma has some simple zesty citrus with some grain. Taste is effervescent and some spice with a little citrus. I hear the new batch are not bottle bombs. 41cubs (250) - , New Jersey, USA - JUL 23, 2009
Aroma is lots of dry straw and yeasty bread. Gorgeous beer, more cloudy than any other I’ve seen and yellow/orange with massive tight white head. Flavor is exceptionally dry and grain like. The carbonation is over the top tiny bubbles, this guy has the potential to be a gusher. Nice beer. Thanks Defiant. 2009 22oz. jcwattsrugger (12559) - Florida and, New Jersey, USA - JUL 22, 2009
750 ml bottle-pours a rocky off white head and gold color. Aroma is grain, light fruit, yeast. Taste is grain, light fruit, yeast, some pepper. OK effervescence.

Bottle. Pours a hazy yellow with a huge fluffy white head, pour slowly! Aroma has an abundance of bread yeast with a slight floral hint. Flavor is tart, sour candy sugar with pineapple and a touch of sweet malt, finishes very dry with clove and other spice ending it. Despite the huge head the overall carbonation is not overdone. Decent brew. argo0 (14127) - Washington DC, USA - JUL 5, 2009
(2nd Shenandoah Throwdown, 750ml bottle, thanks yobdoog) Enormous white head atop cloudy grapefruit juice body. Aroma is medium sweet, yeast, straw. Taste is medium sweet, straw, yeast, light tropical fruit. Low carbonation, medium body.
