Pours gold into a tulip. Bright white head with good retention recedes to hug rim. Sweet candi and yeast aromas. Sweet sourdough and hay upfront turning to a lasting hot, fruity bitter finish. Ibrew2or3 (8614) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - JUN 1, 2012
Zythos Bierfestival 2012, Leuven, Belgium. It pours hazy copper to orange with gold edges and tall light tan head. The aroma has spicy hops mixing with some funky yeast notes as well as some coriander and allspice. I get some mild sugariness at the end of the draw. The taste is similar with spicy yeast notes mixing with a bit of Saison like farmhouse funk and then more tart notes leading into floral and spicy hops. Behind all of this are sweet malt notes. This is pretty tasty and refreshing too. joeneugs (6371) - Livermore, California, USA - MAY 4, 2012
Bottle. It pours a nice golden color with a huge white head. The aroma is sweet and fruity with some honey and light spiciness. The flavor is very intense with big time honey, phenolics, solid earthy hop bitterness and a soft maltiness. Nice finish. It feels a tad bigger than 8%. Very thick and smooth on the palate. Nice one. daniele (9063) - ITALY - MAY 4, 2012

Hazy yellow colour. This one has a good balance of a creamy, malty taste mixed with fresh, biting hop.
porterhouse (1580) - Boothbay, Maine, USA - MAY 4, 2012
(330 ml from Tully’s) Hazy orange-amber with half a finger of off-white head. Aroma of fruit, spice, caramel and yeast, sweetness balanced by spice. Mouthfeel smooth, very lightly fizzy. Tastes of sweetish fruit and caramel with spiciness and a yeasty presence. Semi-peppery in finish, along with a nice hoppy bite. A bit of ABV warmth. Nice balance of sweetness, spice and hops. Pleasant, saison-like. 77ships (9827) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - APR 29, 2012
Draft @ ZBF 2012 // hazy orange / yellow with a white head // smell is crisp, citrus, herbal & touch exotic fruits, slight sweet side // taste is citrus hops, touch herbal, fresh, slight grains & okayish Belgian yeast // light & touch fizzy // not bad but not particularly special or memorable sebletitje (10080) - Enghien, BELGIUM - APR 29, 2012
Draft @ ZBF’12.
Dorée/orange brumeuse, col fin blanc.
Malt grillé, houblonné palais reste très belge dans son approche sur un profile carapils avec un pétillant moyen, citronné, houblon noble restant sec au palais, poussiéreux le tout étant réchauffant. SudsMcDuff (8429) - .....Manchester United.........., Texas, USA - APR 23, 2012

Full, bready aroma with a funky, yeasty undercurrent. Swampy dark gold pour topped by a decent head. The flavor is very good - candi sugar sweetness mixed with sharp hops and yeasty bread. Brewed in Belgium by Stillwater. The cool, tingly bitterness makes for a nice effect on the palate. This is a fine tripel.
