It poured a slightly cloudy orange/amber color with a large fluffy white head. The aroma was of apple, pear, some pineapple and mango. The taste was sweet and hoppy with some spice, earthy malt, lemon and caramel. A very good ale.

dinkle50 (1447) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - DEC 14, 2011
Aroma is sweet fruit. Lots of citrus in there. Appearance is cloudy with a gold color. Not much of a head. Mouth feel is syrupy. Big alcohol blast at the end. Super sweet upfront with toffee notes and caramel. Ends with a ton of bitter hops that mellow out the sweetness. This is pretty hard to drink with that big alcohol flavor. Not bad but not mind blowing either.

topherh (1927) - Kearney, Missouri, USA - DEC 14, 2011
Pours golden with an off white head. Aroma is citrusy hop, peppery spice, and sweet malt. Flavor starts sweet, fruity, then comes a big piney hop smack to the palate, with a peppery yeasty finish.

reebtogi (6149) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 14, 2011
650ml bottle pours a slightly hazy golden color with a finger of white head which leaves some thin lacing. Aroma is fruity with some piney hops. Taste is a light toasty malt sweetness with the fruit and a strong hoppy bitter finish and a hint of yeast and alcohol. This is a nicely balanced beer with a pleasing blend of flavors, a medium body and some spritzy carbonation. Rather enjoyable.

burtonbaton930 (103) - New Jersey, USA - DEC 13, 2011
22 oz bottle poured a hazy straw color with a small head. Strong citrus hop aroma with Belgian yeast in the background. Taste was sweet but not overpowering. Great hop profile with a floral citrus taste up front. Then tripel tast comes out of left field with some notes of clove, banana, and bread. Finish is nice a dry. Palate was a little bit syrupy but still went down real easy. Definitely worth a try... Cheers

rader58 (894) - Leawood, Kansas, USA - DEC 8, 2011
22 oz bottle. Pours a clear golden color. Aroma of coriander, pepper, tangerine, pineapple, pine. Flavor is tangerine, pine, caramel, pineapple, pepper, coriander, lemon. Tastes like a Tripel up front, but an Imperial IPA in the finish. A huge variety of flavors that meld well together.

Strykzone (7188) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - DEC 7, 2011
Sampled at an esbls tasting. I brought this. Clear and golden. A big off white head. I smell hops first. This is a well hopped tripel. Some yeast and spice and they are nice. Wheat is noted late. A nice beer and a different take on the style.

omega (900) - NEW ZEALAND - DEC 5, 2011
UPDATED: DEC 20, 2013 One of my all time favourites. Not reliant on hops this beer has flavour to burn with a depth and complexity that lingers on the palate. Little sad tasting this bottle as it will be the last one for a long time. RERATE: Still one of my favourites, and rerating after a long spell of not being able to source. RERERATE: Off tap I think this makes it even better. Not for everyone this beer as it is massive on the palate.

dionysian_son (277) - Colorado, USA - DEC 4, 2011
Pours striking golden/hay with frothy white head. Nose is flat with some wet lemongrass and bready notes. On the tongue, a medium, salty, and foaming mouthfeel with up front Belgian-ester laden malt moving into an interesting mix of brown sugar, banana, and rich resiny/citrus hop burst. Faintest hint of alcohol. Nice brew.

scarletfire65 (1423) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - NOV 24, 2011
Pours a hazy honey orange. Aroma is caramel, banana, bubblegum, orange, yeast. Medium bodied. Sweet malt underneath. The flavor profile is fruity, with hints of peach and ripe mango. Also a heavy spiciness with clove and even some bitter white pepper. The hop flavors are piney. The finish is bitter and slightly medicinal, with a warming booziness. Interesting, but a little too busy.
