    Immediately met by a strong aroma that is yeast with fruit, a bit floral. It pours clear golden amber with a modearte off-white head and good lacing. Flavor has malty and grassy with a hint of the floral from the nose. Strong alcohol taste with caramel notes.

    A deeply dark mahogany-brown colored beer with a big frothy textured light tan colored head. There's some hang time on the head. A moderate ringlet and persistent cap are left. Yeasty, funky nose. Dark fruit. Syrupy body.

    Strong aroma is yeasty with fruity, floral and grassy undertones. It pours a pretty clear golden amber with a fluffy eggshell-white head that leaves some good lacing. Rich, fruity flavor has malty and grassy hints, and - WHOA, watch out for the alcohol bite! It has hints of caramel and butterscotch as well. Smooth, full-bodied texture has quite a bit of fizz to it, leaving a persistent tingle. Just what you need to get through the blooming holidays!

    Beer poured typical trippel appearance, frothy head in one glass, very little in the other. Chunkies visible at the bottom. Really sweet pearlike syrupy flavors with a lot of yeastiness. Too sweet, really. Not fantastic, but okay.

    I had this beer at Thanksgiving 2010 - it was a nice beer to have to officially open the holiday season. That being said, I still think that St. Bernardus Christmas is the standard bearer for what a spiced belgian ale should be. This beer was not quite as big or heavy as I would've expected. I also think there should have been a tad more spice to the beer. In any event, it was very good and I would have it again. Happy Holidays!

    Pours a light orange, no head, no lacing, and lots of floaties. Overly sweet, with a light mouthbite. All around OK, just doesn't fit my impression of "belgian" style.
