Golden yellow body with a moderate white head. Floral sweet aroma. Sweetness balanced with sourness and a bit of bitterness. A cery complex beer.

Rich cloudy golden color with small head and fine bubbles. Creamy nose with subtle spice, orangel, marshmallow with sweet sour nose. Creamy mouthfeel, sweet/sour finsih with spices of coriander, cinnamon, nutmeg and a great malty character. Very nice!

A clean yellow golden color. Strong aroma, the alcohol is in there. This is a nice strong tripel with a fruitiness to it. The spices are underlying and do not overwhelm. A nice belgian style brew.

Wow! is all I can say about this beer. The aroma of this wheat beer knocks me off my feet. Wheat beers ordinarily dont have the tastiest of aromas but this one is great. The unfiltered style of this beer is visible immediately after the first pour. If you want to compare this to a mainstream beer it would be like blue moon but much better. It knocked me off my feet when i realized that this beer has 9.5% alcohol. You would not know at all! This beer is probably not the best beer I’ve had but holds a special place in my heart. The wheatyness of this beer is very apparent and other slight spices of east come out as you drink deeper and longer. I would drink a bathtub full if I wouldnt die after the first six pack!

Very nice aroma, of spices and fruit. Pleasant taste although the alcohol is apparent. Great golden color, will drink it again.

Bottle from Safeway, Shirley, West Mids. Hazy gold, with a thin, but sticky head. A solid honey and lemon flavour - super smooth ad tangy. A breathy alcohol strength on the finish, but on the whole ghostlike in it’s restraint. Sweeeet.

CapFlu (5132) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 5, 2004
(Draught) Pours a medium, white foamy head and a slightly cloudy amber body. Nose is somewhat yeasty and lemony. The flavour is lactic, hoppy with undertones of apple sauce. Good.

Vintage ’00: Infected --> poored it out. Vintage ’02: Very hoppy and bitter! Mild though with a smooth sourish mouthfeel and finish. Small head and amber colour. Fresh sourness in the aftertaste.

irishsnake (355) - Oakland, California, USA - JUN 29, 2004
(sample @ brewery) beer a hazy pale yellow under a puffy white head. nose is full of belgian-type funk. almost smells like an alcoholic wit. flavor is malty and sweet, balanced by the belgian yeast’s spicy flavor. still, a rather heavy beer, with not quite enough balance to the big malt flavors.

I really like the brews Victory cranks out. I definitely like this one, but not near as much as the Storm King. I love Triples, but this is not one of the best examples. The color is a nice golden-yellow. The aroma is spicy sweet. The taste is pretty good too, but it just seems to be a bit over the top wth the spice and fruit...just a bit. It’s still a solid brew. The 9.5% alcohol is hidden pretty well. Bottom line is that this is pretty good, but just not what I’d like to drink on a daily basis. To me, beers like St Feullien Triple and Stumblin Monk take this style to the next level.
