Light amber-tan colour, cloudy with no head. . Very honeyish aroma. Fruity, slightly tart character with a honeyish accent. Finishes with a sweet, tart-dry mix. Strange beer. deyholla (12021) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - DEC 10, 2010
On tap at the brewpub. Poured a clear orange with a golden hue and a white head that dissipated to the edges. The aroma was floral and fruity with banana, plum, and clove showcased. Flavor started fruity with plum and banana which were joined by growing notes of sweet grain and clove. kbutler1 (1381) - Minnesota, USA - NOV 21, 2010
Draft. 12oz pour served at Town Hall Tap. Pours a copper golden color with a frothy white 1 finger head. Sweet fruit taste blended with Belgian yeast esters. Medium mouthfeel. Nice lace left on the glass. Apple fruit like aromas in the nose. Nice drinker. The alcohol is there but it doesn’t overwhelm the taste. arminjewell (9720) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - DEC 30, 2009
Pours orange with white head, nose is full of spices such as clove, banana, etc. Taste is typical estery fruit from the belgian yeast, and while this is a decent tripel there is nothing stand out about the beer. kiefdog (1826) - Tampa, Florida, USA - NOV 7, 2009
Sample at GABF 2009. Pours a golden yellow with thin white head. Aroma is sweet and malty with notes of caramel, candy sugar, fresh fruit, light spice, honey. Flavor is about the same. Medium body with a pleasing sweet finish.

GABF 2009. Clear golden-orange color with a small white head. Aroma is light fruits, sweet pale malt, and spices. Flavor is pretty sweet with pale malt, apricot, peach, banana, clove, honey, and a little yeast. Good but nothing special. Body and carbonation are medium. A good but not great tripel. bu11zeye (13140) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - OCT 2, 2009
(Draught) Pours a clear yellow body with a small white head. Aroma of grass, coriander, clove, and light apricot. Flavor of grass, Belgian yeast, candi sugar, florals, and clove. TheEnemy (564) - Chicago, USA - SEP 20, 2009

Pours a slightly cloudy amber with only wisps of head. Aroma shows bubblegum, a touch of clove, and a great big pile of candy-sugary-malt. Flavor starts with a big burst of rich sugary malt followed by a gentle but firm burst of grassy hops, yeasty goodness and some bubblegum and a hint of honey, Palate is thick and surprisingly tingly considering how flat and dead this beer looks.
UPDATED: JUN 23, 2015 10 oz. pour, on tap at the brewpub on 9-13-09. Aroma of candy sugars, peach, and a touch of honey. Clean and slightly dry smell. Subtle aroma. Pours a bright, clear, brass/gold. Effervescent: Bubbling up for a good while. Small amount of light beige / nearly white head. Tastes better than it smells or looks. Dry apricots / apricot skin. Surprisingly dry and grapefruit-hoppy. Long, dry aftertaste. Medium to full body. Lively, fresh, and a little oily in the palate. Tang on the tongue. Not bad, but not memorable. 6/3/7/4/13=>3.3. Second rating: 4 or 5 oz. pour, on tap at the brewpub in Minneapolis, Minnesota. Consumed on 6-20-15. Pours a clear, dark gold with beige head. Produces good lacing. Floral, sugary aroma features a peach scent. Flavors of Belgian candy sugar and apricot. Tastes pretty good but ultimately proves too sweet. Medium to full body. A bit filling and fizzy. This is a rare beer that tastes better than it smells, but that sweetness ultimately is too intense to be ideal. 7/3/7/3/14. The ratings are so close that I will stick with my original rating as the official one. Ty5592 (1018) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 21, 2008
