BCTC 2008. On tap. Goldish to amberish pour. Aroma is yeasty, slightly herbal & sweet. Taste is overly sweet to me on top of some Belgian spiciness, yeastiness, sweet fruits, maybe some caramel maltiness. Decent but too sweet IMO puzzl (3258) - New York, New York, USA - MAR 27, 2008
Tap at Blind Tiger. Rather dark pour for a tripel, with a nice head. Lightly fruity aroma , kiwi, with some chewy caramel, malts, and a weak but noticable belgian yeast aroma. Flavor is a bit unimpressive, light mint and sweet fruits, with some dought yeast. Pretty good, especially for an American tripel that isn’t going for the hoppy belgian thing. rudolf (2360) - Buffalo, New York, USA - MAR 27, 2008
Draft at the Blind Tiger. Tawny gold, big ’ol white head w. nice lacing. Nose is grapes & yeasty spice, bubblegummy fruit, sage. Flavor is yeasty fruit, herbal - more of that sage, other herbs I can’t place. Spices lend to a dryish mouthfeel. Fruity yeasty finish, caramel, maybe a hint of DMS. golubj (1377) - San Mateo, California, USA - MAR 25, 2008
Draft at the Blind Tiger. Orange amber pour with fluffy white head. Aroma is spices (clove?) and a lot of sweet / fruity malt. The flavor is very sweet, with bubblegum / banana malt, but somewhat fabricated tasting. The herbal spices balance this sweetness a little bit, but the whole thing tastes a little fake to me. Later on, I thought I was tasting some spiced apples.. not sure.

On tap at the Blind Tiger. Not much head on this. Aroma is malty peach and apricot. Flavor is more sweet than I wish it would be with a woody flavor you’d expect from a BA beer. Some orange and mango as well. bu11zeye (13029) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - NOV 16, 2007
(Draught) Pours a hazy orange body with a medium off-white head. Aroma of toastiness, herbs, light fruitiness, and mustiness. Flavor of sweat citric, doughy, and herbal.
