Very drinkable beer, which can be problematic given its 9.5% abv. Gets sweeter as the beer goes on. Very little head.

ABUSEDGOAT (2693) - California, USA - JUN 26, 2005
UPDATED: SEP 11, 2016 Hazy golden, moderate head. Aroma is spices, grassy hops, Belgian yeast, hint of pepper. The usual deal. Textbook. 7/4/7/3/14 on 2/10/2008. Rerate: Nearly clear golden color, moderate head, some lace/retention. Aroma is spiced with pale malt, pepper, industrial phenols. Medium to full body, somewhat sweet, alcohol and phenols in the finish. Definitely not textbook, but definitely comes off as American.

1FastSTi (3360) - Glendale, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 22, 2005
Bottled on Apr 14, 2005. It pours to a golden body with a thin white, bubbly looking head. Lots of carbonation. The aroma is spicy and not very potent. The aroma also has some barley, some citrus, coriander or clove. The flavor is VERY spicy. Clove, coriander, cardamom, cinnamon, wheat, other grains. The palate has a ton of carbonation. Medium-full mouthfeel, creamy. Too much carbonation.

Brad (364) - Berkley, Michigan, USA - JUN 22, 2005
Bottle, bomber: Very well carbonated cloudy golden with a white sustaining rockey head, left nice lacing. Aromas were bready with some faint citrus (orange and peach), lots of mellow malt spiciness as well. Flavor is sweeter fruits (light like oranges) and quite spicy. Big peppery aftertaste.

Tejas (1005) - Dallas, Texas, USA - JUN 21, 2005
UPDATED: JUL 6, 2005 Cloudy bright gold color. Little to no head. Spicy aroma and taste. Definitely coriander. Slightly dry palate. Alcohol is hidden extremely well, maybe too well. At 9.5% and really drinkable, this one could get dangerous. 96 is too high for this one.

puzzl (3258) - New York, New York, USA - JUN 21, 2005
Lost original rating cause I wasnt logged in... Anyway, here we go again. Pungent, spicy aroma with cloves, dough. Pours a ruddy, cloudy, dark orange with little head and no lacing. Taste is spicy, very alcoholic, and very mouthfilling. Could stand to coat the alcohol a little better. Very chewy and pleasing palate. A nice offering from Victory. Ive got this clipboardd this time in case something screws up again ;)

tried it at the h-burg brew fest. Spicy tasting that lingers. i was surprised to see it was 9.5% on here. Didnt seem that strong. Good beer.

Zeswaft (1755) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JUN 16, 2005
I thought this would be different from the real Belgian beers and be good in an American way. It wasnt. I just hate these kind of beers. As far as this compares to the others Ive had its about the same quality. Oh yeah, and the alcohol is really strong tasting and burny. their is a ton of yeast floating around too

fatty (363) - Perkiomenville, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 13, 2005
Light, pale yellow body with a medium white head. Citrus and spicy aroma. Flavor was slightly sweet with pepper spices piled on top. Not well mixed, probably due to its young age (2 months). Still not a bad tripel and I want to like it, but can probably be better. Will re-rate an older bottle.

Bottle. Pours gold with a white head. Nose is spicy and hoppy. Flavor is slightly peppery and hoppy.
