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.

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 shouldn’t 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.

Bottle. Pours a hazy gold color with a thin white head. Aroma is of sweet hops and alcohol. Taste is sweet, spicy and of alcohol with a very slight bitter hoppy finish. Very warming. You can taste the ABV. I had this before and I remember it being spicier.

golden and clear with small white head which dissapears into a nice lace quickly...taste is crisp due to high carbonation, fruity esters and alc. are apparant...reminds of most strong goldens.,,loses its appeal slightly as it warms in my glass..good though

UPDATED: JAN 1, 2005 This was quite good. Similar to the Chimay Cents but not quite at that level in my opinion. Still a very good beer. The taste was really terrific. Like a Weizenbock and juice combined with hops. Very present smell also. Victory has been quite impressive so far. I’ll have to visit that brewery.

Going strictly by appearance, one could easily mistake this beer for a common pilsner. That is until you smell or taste this gem of a beer. A nice sweet taste with a bitter aftertaste, full in flavor and aroma. Very nice as long as you ignore the fact that they are trying to pass this one off as a triple.

Very hazy apple Juice colored beer. Fine white head. Nose of juicy fruit esters. Very crisp and juicy tasting beer. refreshing. Good body. Nice hops. Good spice. A very fine example of this style. Very nice beer.

For being smack dab in the middle of PA with no abbey’s whatsoever, gotta say, this is a job well done.
