Frothy, off-white head, diminishing fast. Sweetish flavor ith a hint of sourness. Hops, citrus and a bit of cinnamon in aroma and flavor. Thin beer, and the alcohol content is hardly noticable. The beer would be much better if it had more body. bu11zeye (13029) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - AUG 27, 2006
(Bottle) Pours a lightly cloudy orange body with an average off-white head. Aroma of caramel, pear, florals, and cereal. Flavor of coriander, honey, yeast, and sweet malt. crossovert (12896) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 13, 2011
16fl oz white ceramic flip-top botte.
It pours extremely light for a Tripel, more like a belgian strong pale, it is a crystal clear/very pale gold with a huge, billowing white head that recedes with a ton of fine lacing.
It smells delightful, with big yeast notes, honey, and a massive fruitiness.
The flavor isn’t as potent as the smell, btu it is great. It is subtle and fruity, with clean malts and a grassy hop note. The finish is sweet and caramally, but never cloying. The alcohol is well in check.
The mouthfeel is prickly but not overwhelming. The drinkability is nearly tops.

Pours clear, pale golden. Lot of small bubbles surching towards a big, frothy white head. Good duration. Aroma is sweet, yeasty, coriander, oranges, biscuits and apples. Quite creamy mouthfeel. Flavour is a little underwhelming, but still nice. Quite sweet, with biscuity malts dominating between some exotic fruits - pineappel, apples and oranges. A slightly dry finish.
Bottle @ Home. Pours golden with a huge white head, lots of lively bubbles. Aroma of malt, light grainy, belgian yeast, light honey, sweet fruit. Flavor is light sweet, malty, yeast, candy sugar, light spice, light tartness, fruit, little alcohol. Medium body, very high carbonation, light warming alcohol. 110415 Sammy (12197) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 21, 2005
sweet spice. Bottle work of art. Surprisingly refreshing summer drink. Yeast and cream but doesn’t seem a triple. Better than expected and popular with mates. Fruit, honey, suitably noticeably carbonated. Medium-light mouthfeel, lace and soap bubbles on top of golden yellow. hopscotch (11078) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - MAR 22, 2008
Bottle... Cloudy yellow ale with a small, fizzy, white head. Lots of white protein floaties tooling about the brew. Yeasty, sweet-honey aroma with mild spice phenols. Medium-bodied with a watery mouthfeel and reserved carbonation. Sweet, spicy flavor with lots of pale grains, clove and/or coriander. Yuk! Finishes watery and lightly bitter. daknole (11049) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - DEC 2, 2009
Hazy goldish color. White head. Yeast, overripe fruit, old wood aroma. Flavor is yeast, oxidized apples, honey, rotten wood. Hmmm, nope. kp (10882) - Woodstock, Georgia, USA - SEP 1, 2007
