Bottle pours a hazy golden peach color witha fizzy white head that is rather short lived. Thin spotty lacing. A musty earth aroma that has note of apricot, peach and a bit of butterscotch.
Flavor is more fruity, and spicy and has a nice sour touch as well. That distinctive Belgian yeast brings the slightly musty barnyard taste but not so much as others of the style. After only the first couple ounces this is really growing on me. Finish and feel is a bit chalky, maybe I poured too much of it. No bitterness at the end. Very pleasant. Thanks Buck Dich for the bottle TChrome (1469) - Bedford, Texas, USA - FEB 15, 2005
Pours slightly cloudy medium golden with a modestly retained off white head. Aroma is yeasty and much more hoppy with less fruit than I expected for this style. Also a little dust note. The initial flavor is indeed hoppy, but the finish is all fruit. Lots of white raisins and some nice dryness too. A nice tripel and another good beer from Weyerbacher. They are quite the brewery!! Thanks DocLock!!! BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - FEB 15, 2005
Hazy amber/golden color, light lacing and fairly nice head. The nose has some moderate esters with definate notes of candi sugar and spices with that nice hoppy dry tripelish bite. The flavor has a bit of alcohol kick to it with quite a sweet dose of apricot syrup. Finishes tart and fairly clean. A nice bodied triple, not the best but definately up there with some of the better ones. I think it could be a bit less sweet. Thanks DocLock! Bailz316 (256) - North Carolina, USA - FEB 13, 2005
UPDATED: NOV 24, 2005 Golden beer with small white head. Sweet with hints of apple. Can hardly taste the alcohol. Good tripel. DrunkAsASkunk (847) - Lynnwood, Washington, USA - FEB 3, 2005
This beer pours a medium amber color with a thin white head which dissipated quickly but did leave a nice level of lacing around the glass throughout this beer (some with coaxing). The aroma is heavily citrusy, sugary, highly alcoholic, and apricoty. Totally alcohol and fruits! The flavor is medium bodied, sticky, and overwhelmingly alcoholic. Some mild burn towards the finish, alcohol is not very well hidden or masked. Sticky, obtrusive peach and citrus combined with a cotton candy maple syrup sugaryness. Very lopsided beer, little to no bittering qualities. Completely offensive finish, almost intolderably alcoholic and burning at times. Sticky sticky sticky! Not a fan of this beer....

Hazy orange/yellow with big white head made up of tiny bubbles. Sweet malty yeast aroma. Flavor is all sugar. Was just o.k. madsberg (11762) - Sĝborg, DENMARK - JAN 12, 2005
Bottled: Golden coloured. Unclear. Off white fluffy head. Yeast, apples and light alcohol in the nose. Malts, yeast, sweetness and alcohol in the flavour. Slightly sour. Is thin bodied and dull, with a very short life on the palate. Dixen (1465) - Flagstaff, Arizona, USA - JAN 12, 2005
Extrme sweet nose, fruityness, but becomes somewhat artificial. Hazy golden body, small white head. Way too sweet flavor, becomes really gross. Ungstrup (37317) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JAN 11, 2005
An unclear orange beer with a diappearing head. The aroma is of yeast and oranges. The flavor is sweet with notes of straw and yeast and a dry end. richlikebeer (838) - Easton, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 9, 2005
UPDATED: JAN 22, 2005 Very malty smell, cloudy tan color, light white head. Very sweet flavor with heavy malt flavor. Aftertaste is a very bittersweet taste. I would call this an interesting taste, the alcohol doesnt come through at all. Enjoyable.
RERATE--Had this on tap at the open house, and it was much better, especially in the aftertaste, which was much less bitter, spoke to one of the brewers and discussed this, and was advised to try to get it within 2 months of brewing to get the best flavor.
