Medium toast and malt, a little yeast, touch of honey, herbal. Large, heavy stone-line container. Somewhat complex, but mostly smooth with a unique combination of flavors that works well.

MBison (548) - Southern Highlands, AUSTRALIA - APR 19, 2009
Bottle (750ml). Poured sparkling golden orange with a large frothy, off-white head which was mostly lasting. Aroma was of floral hops with lemon zest, pears, apple pie, cinnamon, coriander and some straw. Flavor was of sweet bready malts with a very light bitterness, lemons, dried apricots, candy sugar, cinnamon, cloves and light notes of coriander. Very well masked alcohol content. Medium bodied with lively carbonation, a dry mouthfeel and a decent length finish. Far to sweet for my liking – not nearly bitter or spicy enough to balance itself out IMO.

Everything to be expected from the type of ale, but not enough complexity to merit special mention. Yeasty with a little orange peel hint, but the sweetness is the dominant reaction. Not quite as bad as a Kronenbourg Blanc, but should have been better.

sjorsvdg (535) - NETHERLANDS - OCT 29, 2016
Lekkere tripel met een krachtig aroma. Gist, fruit, honing, rozenbottel, wat hop. Bijzonder helder voor een tripel. Schuim trekt wat snel weg.

Cloudy peach, has a fruity aroma. Taste is mild fruit, a little watery mouthfeel. Has an interesting bottle.

Looked flat from the start and it was. No carbonation and just to smooth. I guess the fanncy ceramic bottle does not work.

Beer Snob (501) - Ontario, CANADA - JUL 29, 2009
My first $20 beer! Bought and enjoyed after a long day of hiking in Cortina, Italy - I figured I deserved the best beer in the store. Well, light orange with a medium head and a very intriguing aroma that was sweet, floral yet still with the presence of alcohol. Taste was a bit sweeter than I would have liked, but it wasn’t cloying and quickly disappeared, and the finish was nice and dry. Still, I felt kind of ripped off - the "clay bottle" was ultimately meaningless, and Unibroue makes better beer at a fraction of the cost.

Gunshy (479) - Ohio, USA - NOV 24, 2002
This beer poured a dark golden color and man, if that head ever stopped coming out of the bottle, I wasn’t sure I was going to be able to tell you the huge bubbly head was off white and subsided quickly and left some nice lace. A good deal of carbonation and sediment present. The aroma was of hops and fruit, mostly apricot. The flavor was of hops and citrus with a slightly astrigent finish on a medium body.

3.9
chronictonic (472) - Oreland, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 7, 2013
Bottle. Pours cloudy golden with thick white head. Aroma is mild and leans towards candy sweet. Mouthfeel has pleasant carbonation. Flavor is medium bodied. Some candy beat sugar flavors, but not overpowering. Mild hop finish cleanses the sweetness away leaving you ready for the next sip.
