Bottle 500ml in Tolosa. Nice, similar to a tripel. Aromas of caramel, bread, leaves, and green grapes. Taste is sweet, slightly sour, with long length. Palate is velvety, and medium bodied. Orange, with a thin head. thehoff (598) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - SEP 16, 2003
Very complex beer and on the more expensive side but well worth it. A beer that I could drink again and again. karl (158) - Glendale, New York, USA - FEB 3, 2002

Good overall. Floating unfilteredness. Good bitter taste. Not to overwelming. crossovert (13869) - 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.

Bottle at Appellation Wines we wish you a hoppy Christmas tasting. Pours a blonde colour with a thick white head that dies quickly. Aroma of lemon, Turkish delight, a little soap, orange, pineapple and coconut. Flavours of lemon, orange, mild soap, buttered popcorn and a grassy finish. Moderate carbonation, light CO2 prickle and a foamy mouth-feel. Really good and a cracking ceramic swing-top bottle too. Braudog (6834) - Yorktown, Virginia, USA - NOV 4, 2013
In a ceramic, swing-top bottle labeled as "Yeast Hoist" -- deep, rich golden with a frothy head and heavily sedimented, this screams goodness, visually. The aroma is similarly seductive ... And ultimately this drinks like all the really good, classic Belgian golden ales. Sharp and tangy, with a hint of wild fermentation, but ultimately evenly sweet and beery ... love it.
