I tried this beer on April 25, 2008 at "Smokeless Joe’s" in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. The beer poured a solid orangy-gold colour with a very thin white head. The aroma was that of sweet malt and some yeast. The mouthfeel was medium-bodied, and highly carbonated. The flavour was candied malt, some hoppy grapefruity hints, and a little more yeast. A very good beer.
UPDATED: MAY 28, 2008 Pours hazy golden orange with sediment floaters. Huge, fluffy off white head. Nose and flavor is sweet and spicy, as is the flavor, with citrus and fruit sweetness. Very lively on the palate, and a finish that is smooth, and somehow just dissappears. Plovmand (8266) - Helsinge, DENMARK - MAY 1, 2008
Bottle. Hazy golden colour in the galss with a huge pearly ehite head. Heavy spicy aroma of coriander, citrus and tropical fruits. In mouth a pearly texture with large carbonation. Taste of spices, fresh fruit, and alcohol. jhumphries69 (1034) - Tyrone, Georgia, USA - APR 28, 2008
33cl bottle. Pours a hazy gold with highlights of tan and dirty yellow. The head pours up white in color and medium in size. Small spots of lace are left on the glass but not much. The aroma is richly perfumey with resiny, oily, spicy aromatics and some notes of sweet fruit and cakey malts. The fruity aromas are hard to place - tropical, perhaps some citrus, fruity liqueur (thanks to the hint of ethanol in the aroma), and made more interesting with a touch of exotic spice. The flavor is complex, just like the nose. There is a strong fruitiness at the tip of the tongue - melons, papaya, mango, pineapple, and citrus.As the beer travels slightly back - squarely between tip of tongue and mid-palate - spices emerge along with tartness and a touch of sharp alcohol flavors. At mid-palate, there is an earthy bitterness combined with bitterness from the alcohol which balance sweet malts, tropical fruit esters, and a light peppery spice. A bready malt flavor also becomes apparent, including a strong taste of wheat. The finish is crisp and long, fairly dry, and alcoholic. The mouthfeel is crisp and rich - both well carbonated and oily and somewhat thick. As the beer warms the flavor of ethanol strengthens, giving the finish a boozy character. Overall, a wonderfully complex Belgian Tripel. Cletus (6355) - Connecticut, USA - APR 25, 2008
Pours gold with a white head. Smells of bubblegum, oranges, dry malt, light spice, perfume. Tastes of citrus with a semi dry finish and some residual spice. Decent.

This was wonderful. Belgian appearance; rich golden body, huge head. Nose of a tripel ... bread and yeast. Taste of a tripel, bread, yeast, with a longer and more bitter finish than I expected. Wonderfully creamy palate. tomciccateri (1034) - Albuquerque, New Mexico, USA - APR 21, 2008

On tap at Brasserie Beck in Washington DC. Nice golden color with a big fluffy head. Slightly hoppy, clean finish and easy to drink. A touch harsh on the back end though. Good beer HighlanderOne (1313) - York, SC via NJ, South Carolina, USA - APR 19, 2008
