Well, its certainly golden in colour, with some haze. A remarkably easy drinking beer for its strength. Relatively soft and mellow mouthfeel. Clean and fresh. Apple was the main flavour I pulled out. Pretty solid, but I wasnt blown away by this beer. Bottled at the Green Leafe cafe, Williamsburg.

at first i thought this was bland but by the end of the glass i was liking it. the smell is very nice, fresh saaz and orange zest, and nice belgian yeast doughiness. taste is cerealy and sweet with round apricot and orange meringuey citric flavours like amarillo but i bet they didnt use amarillo. like a weis bar - round fruity and pleasantly sweet. needs some bite and edge maybe but it was nice.

Cloudy golden-orange with a small white head. Citrus-like aroma, thats actually quite weak. Flavor is sweet on the front, bitter on the finish, and had an immense warming down the throat. Alcohol is not well hidden at all.

Vigorous pour produces a big fluffy off white head. Aromas of coriander/citrus come through. Belgian yeasts come through in the taste with spice/malt finish. Tastes every bit of the 9.5% abv. Good for a domestic.

bottle. looks can be deceiving. pours a cloudy pale yellow with floaties and a nice off-white creamy head. looks very much like a hefeweizen, but "wow", what a nice balanced flavor this one has! hops, citrus, malt and yeast. very nice brew.

motelpogo (7705) - Plzen, CZECH REPUBLIC - DEC 25, 2004
bottled. noteworthy for being an american belgian strong ale that is actually subtle. nice vanilla and coriander aroma. hazy golden. slight lactic character and sweet but in a pleasant honeyed way. decent yeast presence. hard to find much fault with

Looks like sports drink with a thin and quickly lost white head. Sharp and yeasty aroma with some banana and spice. Some funky earthy flavors mingle with the yeast and citrus and a bit of unidentifiable spice(grain of paraadise?). Excellent body and smooth, creamy finish. Well balanced and easy to drink. Distinct offering.

GuilTTy (733) - Cherry Hill, New Jersey, USA - DEC 20, 2004
Beautiful cloudy golden pour with tangerine highlites under a solid white, off-white head (forgot to note lacing). Aroma of hops, light fruits, pepper and alcohol. Silky mouthfeel with plenty of sweetness, peppery spice and hops. Slightly tart finish with some spice as well. This was a nice surprise (though I shouldnt be surprised by anything in a bottle from Victory. Second bottle tasted better than the first.

Bottled. Hazy golden coloring with a big white head. Flavor is spicy and very warming. Great tripel.

This poured out a very hazy golden orange with a tall white head that drops to a ring of scattered bubbles. Strong smell of spice in nose with I believe orange peel being the most recognizable, there was some sweetness mingling with the spice as well as earthy hop notes. The taste had spiciness to it as well that went great with the fruity sweetness. Good creamy mouthfeel and the alcohol is hidden extremely well for being so high. Not you typical Belgian Triple but a good beer not doubt. Not one of the best triples I have had but a beer I do return to quite frequently just because it is good.
