Was looking forward to this, but it is pretty disappointing. Bright golden pour with boring/short white head. nose is tight, sweet and bready with some ’belgian yeast’ notes. Body is spritely for an american ale but nowhere near where it should be for a tripel, this is top to bottom an imperial american imitation of the style. custardy creamy body with yeast, flour, vanilla. tasty enough, drinkable for the weight and taste, but not very impressive.

A decent spice aroma. Flavor is fairly spicy not too light. Good stuff. Zestiness is the prevalent characteristic, but it is overall just okay.

Cletus (6368) - Connecticut, USA - JUL 29, 2009
Pours amber with a nice white foamy head. Smells of cirsp, dry malt, bananas, cloves, coriander. Tastes dry and spicy with some banana hints, honey, some light fruitiness. Not a Tripel, but unexpected. I enjoyed this.

decaturstevo (6343) - decatur, Tennessee, USA - MAR 17, 2012
Golden/orange pour with white head. Aroma of orange zest, light abv. Flavor is brown sugar, resiny hoppiness like bitter, a citrus zest, and a nice abv warmth. A light medium body with no off flavors and a crisp clean flavor. A big beer with the deceptive air of drinkabiltiy. A creeper for sure. Nice carbonation

riversideAK (6265) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - AUG 11, 2008
Everything about this was average and generic. Golden color. Light spicy, banana, sweet candy aromas and flavor. A touch of alcohol. Well made, but extremely generic to me.

4.3
Cybercat (6145) - Georgia, USA - NOV 23, 2009
Strong aroma is malty with a fruity undertone and hints of hops as well as a good alcohol bite. It pours a nice clear amber with some bubbles and a decent, if not persistent, white head. Rich, mouth-filling flavor is malty, fruity and just slightly smoky with a hoppy hint and a bit of alcohol zing. Lively, sassy texture dances on the tongue and all the way down the pipes.

Glouglouburp (6103) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 26, 2009
In short: A mega sweet flowery extra-clean Belgian blonde ale. Boring.
How: Bottle 22oz. Consumed relatively fresh, about 4 months after purchase
The look: Clear golden body topped by a very small white head
In long: Nose of sweet bakery, flowers and yeast. Taste is very sweet, lots of sweet cookies, sweetened white bread, sweetened bananas, flowery hops. Basically just about every flavour I tasted in that beer can be prefixed with the word “sweet”. Except for the hops of course, I cannot taste sweet hops, only Quevillon can taste sweet hops.

Pours bright amber into a tulip. Bright white head slowly recedes leaving slight sheets. Coriander and alcohol aromas. Sweet cloves upfront turning to a strong vanilla alcohol burn.

3.6
hayduke (5677) - Eureka, California, USA - OCT 2, 2009
From a 22 oz bottle purchased from the Market of Choice in Eugene, Oregon, the poured a very clear golden orange with a nice sized and long-lasting white head that left moderate lacing. The nose was sweet fruit aromas. The body and mouthfeel were fairly light but it was smooth on the palate. Flavor shows the fruit and some cloves and you can taste the alcohol. Long fruit flavored finish makes for an enjoyable beer.
