I’m pretty sure there was no Belgian-style beer being brewed in Manhattan, KS 50-odd years ago when my dad was at K-State. His loss. The pour could almost pass for an American lager but for the champagne bubbles rising streaming up from the bottom. Aroma is sweet malt and yeast. Taste adds some spice and grain. beerbill (3619) - Laurel, New York, USA - JUN 16, 2012
16 oz. can courtesy of pepsiedcan. Pours a very hazy gold with a thin-moderate fairly creamy white head that lasted through the first quarter of the glass and left partial lace. The aroma has some distinctive spicy Belgian yeast along with some sugary sweetness. Doesn’t quite come together for me. The flavor is equally spicy but there is also some fruitiness not present in the aroma. Some sugary sweetness present here as well. A bit abrasive on the palate. There is some lingering dryness that emerges at the back of the throat well after the swallow. Certainly different, I’m not sure this is something I’d look to drink with any regularity though. radagast83 (8072) - Alexandria, Virginia, USA - JUN 11, 2012
Poured from can at SAVOR. This beer poured a yellow-orange color with a small slightly off-white head. Aroma was slightly sweet malts, touch of yeast, light fruit notes. Alcohol well masked, enjoyable enough. wlajwl (6813) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - MAY 29, 2012
Aroma is Belgian yeast, grains, citrus and spices. The flavor is grains/malts, spices and a slight muddling of the flavors. The flavors in this kind of ran into each other; it was decent but could’ve been better. Ughsmash (7508) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 22, 2012
Pint-size can. Poured clear straw golden with a dense, uniform white head. The aroma picked up a thick paste of spices (cloves, grains of paradise, and coriander) over soft fruit and pale malts.. some vanilla down there too.. too sweet and too aggressive with the spicage for my liking. The flavor found honey, bread, and vanilla sweetness at the core.. lots of cloves and floral bitterness around.. very spicy on the long finish. Medium-bodied with high carbonation on the palate.. again heavy on the spices and bitterness.. this wasn’t bad, but I like a lot more subtlety in my tripels.

Awesome artwork on this can! Orange color, light whitish head. Spices, banana, clove, coriander, yeast, candy sugar aroma. Flavor is sweet up front with a nice hit of spices, yeast, some herbal notes. Pretty nice stuff! arkotramathorn (41) - Eau Claire, USA - MAY 18, 2012
From can, pours orange yellow with faint white head. Feels thick on the tongue, with flavors of spices and cloves with yeasty bread and bananas. Has lots of mouth feel, I really enjoy this beer. I figured I’d try a lower end Trippel before moving on to the top rated ones. vikingguy (1103) - Carver, Minnesota, USA - MAY 12, 2012
Yellow-gold, white head. Fruit and yeast on the nose. Taste: Very floral and fruity. Green apple, honey, sweet corn, and yeast. Fairly creamy and drinkable. A little too sweet but otherwise pretty good. beastiefan2k (3981) - HdG (past: NYC, KS, Rain City), Maryland, USA - MAY 7, 2012
16oz can poured into a small Corsendonk goblet. I think this is a damn good tripel... or more like a golden Belgian strong. Sure it may be a little sweet but its well done. Aroma has Belgian airiness with some sweet esters (only mild to moderate) and a slightly herbal aspect (not sure from where) to balance it out. Flavor is same, light banana esters in a thick coating of Belgian malts. Again, a faint herbal character and a moderate bitterness to balance it out. Thicker mouthfeel goes in line with the structure of the beer. I think it is well made, not a tripel but Belgian, not overly sweet, drinkable, and the best damn Tripel in a can. phaleslu (10271) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAY 7, 2012
Pour from a 16 oz. can at Microfest 2012. Pours a cloudy yellow-gold color with a finger of white head. Sweet and fruity all the way through, with banana, apricot, sweet bready malts, mild spice, grains, straw, and floral notes. Light-bodied, with a bready, fruity mouthfeel and moderate carbonation. Decent tripel.
