The aroma is malty and hoppy but mostly yeasty with some citrus. The appearance copper gold with a small head. The taste is like the aroma. The palate is smooth. Overall A good beer but that’s all. jjuf1853 (1302) - Land O Lakes, Florida, USA - AUG 15, 2011
Draft at WOB. Hazed golden yellow pour. Foamy white head. Belgian yeast, spices and a touch of lemon in the aroma. Flavor was decent but not great. Overall seemed a bit bland compared to some Tripels. Spelt (232) - East Kingston, New Hampshire, USA - AUG 13, 2011
Strong phenolics present as cloves in alcohol. hazy light yellow with bubbly white head. Taste is slightly sweet again with cloves but now some banana. Reasonably dry finish. Less body than I’d expect from a Tripel but has long warming finish coolpop (1394) - Birmingham, Alabama, USA - AUG 7, 2011
Draft sampled at Music City Brewers’ Fest. Poured a light amber with a smallish white head. Holy bubblegum, batman! Had a hard time focusing on anything else, but there was some nice spiciness, banana, malt. Finished pleasantly bitter. But, oh, that bubblegum.

Draft. A cloudy orange pour with a creamy off white head. Scent is sweet malts and honey. Taste is tart with a sweet honey finish. stangger (619) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 29, 2011
On tap at the drake tavern. Light aroma of yeast, bread. Medium body, highly carbonated. Very yeasty with lots of banana, orange peel. Earthy, fruity. The bread notes linger on the tongue while the fuss lasts. It’s decent. smith4498 (3651) - Winter Springs, Florida, USA - JUL 27, 2011
Pours dark golden colr with white head. Fruity and doughy arom with some spices. Similar flavors but not all that good. Medium body with lively carbonation. Disappointing. mansquito (6729) - Nueva York, New York, USA - JUL 23, 2011
Whole Foods Market, DC 4-pack ($11): This is pretty cheap for a Belgian tripel and fortunately it is not a bad beer either. Pours an orange color with a loose white head. Aroma got some gruut, along with a few notes of wine, and plenty of fruitiness to be had. Taste is well-balanced. It is a sipping beer completely because of the mouthfeel. Rather on the sweet side, but not in a cloying way. Spices add a little extra bite to it. I didn’t detect any alcohol in the taste. JDBaker11058 (2310) - Maryland, USA - JUL 19, 2011
Appearance: clear (!) medium gold, two finger frothy white head shrinking to a creamy cap, solid lacing. Aroma: toasted white bread, caraway seeds, champagne, white pepper. Taste: sweet buttered white toast, spicy notes of fresh cracked pepper, hay, herbal and floral notes, white grapes. Finish: slightly sweet, a little spicy, with some champagne dryness and a little peppery heat. Notes: Like a tripel mixed with a fine pilsner. Really liked the non-typical (for a tripel) spicy peppery/herbal notes, clearly from the gruut. Palate very creamy/oily but with good effervescence. Extremely drinkable.
