BB-09/05:Deep copper,oarnge,liquid with a beakutiful,bone-white,creamy head. The smallest of bubbles create the best of lacework.Appearance would be a six,if possible. Strong aromas of grassy hops,sweet-pale malts,musty yeast. As it warms the hops take over,then the musty yeast dominates. Soft but terribly,thick mouthfeel.Flavors of sweet malt,honey,toast, are all over the tounge while the grassiness of the hops dominate the sides of the mouth. Alcohol is totally hidden and flavor only gets better.First the grassiness takes over,then the mustiness takes over.Damn good Belgian.

Wasnt terribly impressed with this as a Tripel. It was really dry, didnt have a whole lot of fruitiness to it. Alcohol wasnt a player, but that didnt add any plusses. Nothing special.

Hazy golden with asmall white head. smells like a strong blond, yeasty with some swet malt. Flavor issweet and slightly spicy, with citrus and alcohol. Would probaly benefit from some ageing, but as I tried it, it was too unbalenced to be really drinakble

Slightly hazy golden color with a thick white head. Carbonation looks very lively. Caramel, banana, some other fruit maybe apricot. Medium sweet taste. The carbonation is not as crazy as I expected from the looks of it but still quite fizzy. Alcohol leaves you with a warm feeling which is good because it lets you know this is a strong beer in case you forget after a few sips.

Very light slightly hazy golden color. Sort of spicey fruit aroma. Spicey lemon hoppiness with some fruits. The big alcohol is very well hidden.... you can tell its there, but not much.
