Clear gold. Kind of sour dank aroma. Sour fruity taste. Long sour finish. Apple and unripe plum. i like sour ales so this isn't so bad.

Crisp copper glow with an orange tint and a good, two centiemtre tall tan head - not much movement, but still nice looking, slightly above average. Aroma of hay, grass, alcohol, wheat, yeast, sugars and some honey - all with a nice floral bite at the end. Medium to Full-bodied; Strong floral and herbal notes throughout in the taste with a hint of sourness, a little funk and barnyardie flavour, but a good dose of malt, wheat, yeast and alcohol. Aftertaste shows some more sour and tart notes, a little lactic taste, some shades of herbs and spices and a lot of wheat, sugars, alcohol and even some complexity. Overall, an interesting take on a trip, but I don’t think it works so well - neat to try, but the spices/herbs add some characteristics that may work with a biere de garde or a blonde/wheat ale, but don’t show off a tripel too nicely. I sampled this 65 cL bottle purchased from Arrowine in Arlington, Virginia on 12-March-2013 for US$8.99 sampled at home in Washington on 15-October-2013. jmagnus87 (2912) - Rockford, Illinois, USA - OCT 15, 2013
Draft. From notes. Spicy and fruity with belgian yeast. Very tart finish. Pretty darn good. krumbum (1109) - truckee, California, USA - OCT 14, 2013
Cloudy pearlescent orange. Smells of soap slight smoke and caramelized malt. So sweet and fragrant like a wine. The taste is so overwhelming only at the end do the flavors start to sort themselves out. Damico (3147) - Royersford, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 10, 2013
Pours clear sunset golden with some deep amber at the top with a big creamy beige head. Aroma is light sweet sweet tropical fruit and a bit of caramel malts. Flavor brings pleasant tropical fruits, a hint of tart on the dry ending, and some clean booze bites but so super smooth.

Very nice triple from NB. Sampled at the Beer and bacon festival in Grand Forks. The aromas are great. Sweet belgian candy goodness. The palate is a little weak - but still a solid ale. NeoHippie2 (1074) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - OCT 5, 2013
Hazy amber pour with a white head. Aromas of fruit and floral notes. Tart flavor at first that mellows to fruity/floral flavors and a nice malt character. Very complex and refreshing. No sign of that 9% abv either. Solid brew. coreyc1221 (319) - Truckee, California, USA - SEP 24, 2013
Tart apricot with cold maltness aroma. Hazy amber in color with a thin white head, Very tart start with a strong lemon and apricot zing. Definitely feel it on the sides of the tongue. raradel (343) - Atlanti Beach, Florida, USA - SEP 24, 2013
Tartness compliments the Belgian profiles. Thin and dark in color for the style but pretty balanced for the different ingredients. glennmastrange (2868) - hobe sound, Florida, USA - SEP 24, 2013
Bottle. Moderate straw for the malt, perfume and lemon for the hops, faint soap for the yeast, with hints of white wine and starfruit. Head is small, fizzy/frothy, off-white with some slippery acing and is almost fully diminishing. Color is clear sparkling amber-bronze. Flavor starts faintly sweet, heavily acidic and sour, then finishes moderately acidic and bitter and again sour. Palate is light to medium, slick with a soft to lively carbonation and a tart finish. Tastes like a sparkling tropical fruit wine.
