Apricot and coriander nose. Cloudy golden, thin head. Full body. Lemon and coriander flavor. Fruity esters fade revealing a nice light maltiness. Alcohol well concealed. Dangerously good. Guerde (1297) - Leuven, BELGIUM - FEB 2, 2014
(bottle) Pours a hazy light yellow/gold color with a scant white head that leaves a ring around the glass. Aroma of honey butter spread on toast, orange marmalade, peeks of coriander, light bubblegum, and even more bread. Little bit of hoppiness too and perhaps a flash of vanilla but that might be a reach. Pretty breakfasty though. The toast spread aspect is really a nice feature. Taste has more prominent bubblegum right up front and thankfully that honey butter on toast feature has carried over into the flavor dept. Some orange peel and coriander shine through on the finish before being replaced by a tandem of drying hops and bready yeast. The orange really begins to emerge as this warms both in aroma and flavor. The abv is expertly masked here, and this drinks more like a 5-6% beer, although the heft of it on the palate is a slight tell. Overall, I don’t normally care much for these Blue-Moonesque type concoctions, but when they’re done this well, I’ll gladly make an exception. p1meatloaf (256) - Corvallis, Oregon, USA - MAR 12, 2015
looks white head and hazy yellow. Nose is oranges bread yeasty flowers. Tastes eatery light banana bread cloves thick. Hints of vanilla. Reminiscent of a hefeweizen and a saison but not really either. DavoleBomb (1867) - Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 23, 2016
Poured into a snifter.
2.75 A: Murky dark yellow color. About one finger of fizzy off-white head that falls quickly and leaves no lacing.
4.5 S: This is incredibly orangy. Orange, orange peel, orange, then coriander, hay, lemon meringue. Peppery yeast spiciness. It’s got so much orange about it that it’s hard to perceive much of anything else. In any case, it smells great.
4.5 T: It tastes much like it smells. Orange dominates, followed by orange peel, lemon peel, coriander, and hay. Yeast offers more pepper. This has some powerful flavors and is in stark contrast to the old world tripels, but it just tastes so damn good.
4.25 M: Lighter medium body. Good moderate carbonation. Spritzy and tongue tingling.
4.5 D: Really tasty beer. It’s nothing like the standard tripel, but it tastes so good that it’s tough to bother with that.

Yellow with white head. Definite Belgium aroma. Cinnamon & refreshing bitterness, very smooth. A supped up Belgium blond with a subtle spiciness & a little sweetness in the finish.

cloudy yellow amber like a wheatbeer,pure white head with lacing but dissipates as it warms..tastes spice,peppery,lemony,citrusy and slightly apple as well,lght to medium body,slick and watery..lots of burn for 8 percent but could be due to the spiciness as well overall good refreshing and tasty but really not my style FROTHINGSLOSH (7796) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 29, 2017
Sampled on draft this beer poured a cloudy vibrant yellow color with a medium sized foamy white head that left decent lacing. The aroma was sweetish and yeasty with notes of bubblegum and faint perfume. The flavor was sweetish and yeasty with bubblegum and golden fruits. Long finish. Moderately full bodied. Well done.

Bottle at home. Pour is slightly hazy golden in appearance with a bright white head and great lacing. Big clove and coriander, biscuit, grass, light banana, white pepper, banana, and basil in the aroma. Taste is big spice and clove upfront, with notes of fruity esters, banana, and bread through the middle, ending grassy/spicy with big hits of white pepper. Thick mouthfeel with high carbonation. Damn tasty Tripel. DrSilverworm (9671) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JAN 22, 2013
12oz bottle, bottled 1/2/13. Hazy dandelion yellow color. Thin white head, decent lace. Orange citrus and floral nose. Awesome big zesty orange peel flavor (bigger than I’m used to from the tripel style), floral notes, light spice with a very enjoyable yeast character - not too belgian, not too little belgian. Just belgian enough. Very smooth, light crisp carbonation, lightly creamy texture, but a good, more dry finish. Zesty sweet taste, little bitterness, bit of umami. This is a fantastic tripel. Unique, tasty, easy to drink.. and $11 for a 6-pack! berrya785 (441) - Kansas, USA - FEB 12, 2013
Pours a hazy golden yellow with one finger of white foam. Aroma is Belgian yeast and citrus. The taste has a bready sweetness with citrus,honey, and pepper.
