Pours a yellow colour with a white head. Aroma is fruity, hops and spices. Taste is also fruity with banana, bubblegum and spices leading to a mellow bitter finish. Really nice. Dervock (1512) - AUSTRALIA - JAN 28, 2012
On tap - Poured golden amber with a thin white head. Bubblegum and citrus/marmalade aroma. Taste dominated by the alcohol sweetness. Some malt and a sweet dry finish. Creamy mouth feel with light carbonation. M_Jager (106) - AUSTRALIA - DEC 23, 2011
Was happy with this beer. Left a good head with lacing on the glass, smelt yeasty with some small amounts of spice. Tasted a bit buttery but enjoyable and while the alcohol was noticeable it wasn’t overpowering. Nice finish. Would buy again cayleystheorem (3) - USA - OCT 30, 2011 does not count
From a bottle. Pours a hazy golden yellow. There is a reasonable amount of head at first, but due to the large bubble size, it quickly disperses. The aroma is the best part. It smells like a spicy Belgian strong ale. You have the usual Belgian yeast esters (banana, raisins, grapes) backed by a delicious smelling creamy malt. The aroma is also fairly spice, reminding me of a Christmas ale with cloves and maybe a hint of cinnamon, with even a little floral flourish at the end. There is a hint of tartness, reminiscent of apply cider. The taste, at first, is nice. It starts as a warm, yeasty raisin bread. The hops emerge pretty quickly, though, and add some spiciness as well as a nice wholesome vegetable flavor. Next comes the tartness from the nose. Though initially refreshing, I soon found something a bit off about it, and reminded me of sour milk. I’m familiar with the pleasant funkiness of Belgian sours (ever the Gueuzes), but this was not of the same variety. Honestly, once I noticed, I could find traces of it in the aroma and the rest of the taste. The palate suffers from overcarbonation. The beer stands at 8.8% and this style is usually heavy bodied, but the carbonation distracts from that . fletchfighters (1604) - AUSTRALIA - JUL 29, 2011
Appearance- poured a clear, honey gold color with a short lived white head. Good retention and better life in head when swirled.
Aroma-- Toasted bread with banana, clove, spice and a bit of pepper. Good nose but a little soft.
T-- Stale, salty bread. A Little prickly on the tongue.
P-- Fairly carbonated, medium to full bodied even with the higher carbonation. A lot of bread and in the background white grape and peach.
O-- Not bad, would consider buying again. Well hidden ABV and pretty tasty really. Good effort at a Belgian style.

Bottle from Mane Liquor. Pours a cloudy golden with a small white ring as the head. Good lacing. Loads of yeast and biscuit on the nose with a touch of spice and pepper. Alcohol warmth comes through on this one. Oranges and buttery shortbread in the taste. Not too shabby Ungstrup (38958) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - DEC 20, 2010
Bottled. An unclear amber beer with a thin golden head. The aroma has notes of oxidation, malt, and caramel. The flavor is sweet with notes of malt, metal from the alcohol, and oxidation. mkel07 (6549) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - NOV 19, 2010
330ml bottle. Murky dark honey colour with a decent white head that clings to the glass. Spicy aromas of pepper with some fruit, pear maybe, coming along for the ride. Initial flavour is good with a silky mouthfeel and strong alcohol taste that lasts in the mouth. BeerChaser0078 (909) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - NOV 5, 2010
Bottle. Slightly hazy orangeish amber pour with a short-lived foamy white head. Aroma is sweet, fruity and spicy with banana, orange, pineapple, clove, cinnamon and caramel. Flavour almost mirrors the aroma however everything seems amplified: the fruit, the spice and the caramel notes all seem more defined and prominent. Light, dry mouthfeel with moderate carbonation (for a tripel) and a lingering spicy, mildly sweet finish. One of the better Aussie tripels, this is quite good but could still stand some refinement. With a little less sweetness and some more spice this could be very good. Davros (3338) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - OCT 28, 2010
Pours pale amber with a lasting white head.
Nose shows doughy yeast, light spicy phenols, orange peel, passion fruit, white wine and wheat. Very expressive, seems to be a mix of a triple, a witbier and a new world pale ale.
Very similar flavours but the alcohol is a little rough and overbearing. Quite sweet as well.
The carbonation could be a fair bit higher to cut out the sweetness for a drier finish.
Very interesting beer, very light and summer, although the alcohol needs to be curbed.
