    Pours hazy topaz with a thick and frothy ivory head. Aroma yields fresh malt, yeasty, stone fruit and subtle resiny hop tones. Flavor delivers zesty fresh malt, yeasty, stone fruit, butterscotch and resiny hops. Texture provides lively fizz and smooth, fair body. This tripel is no tripe!

    Pours a huge foamy white head and has a slightly hazy golden appearance. Pretty thick lacing. Aromas are mostly citrus and floral hops, light malts. Flavours are fruity, coriander, oranges and some good old Belgian yeast thrown in the mix. A little bit of bitterness on the palate. Goes down nicely. 8%abv is quite deceiving as it does not seem like a strong beer. Good stuff!

    Good quality tripel that seems to be almost as available as Sierra Nevada around these parts these days... dont ask me why? Golden Tripel, all the sorts of things that make up this style, as this is pretty much the milestone, hallmark, standard, icon, whatever. Great beer put together well. Light fruit of the fleshy variety, and sometimes the segmented variety. Yeast, but subtly and woven into a fabric of light spice, nothing wintery, all coriander and cardomon. Flowers, of the not smelly variety, just more the sensation of being in a greenhouse.

    Hazy golden color, lots of yeast. Clear white lasting foam, somewhat high carbonated. Strong smell of yeast and barley and bit of sweet taste. (Velp 201204)

    330 ml bottle, will soon be available at Cardinal Pub & Bar, Stavanger. ABV is 8%. Slightly hazy pale yellow colour, huge white head. Strong and "typical tripel" aroma: notes of Belgian ale yeast, fruit, flowers, mild spices and white kandij sugar. The medium sweet flavour is spicy and moderately fruity, with decent hops in the finish. Has everything you expect from a tripel.

    Pick this one up at BevMo this past weekend. I was looking for something different and found this. The overall taste was pleasant, but okay. I've had better beer but I would try this one again.

    Quite new to the grading/rating of beers, but here goes numero uno: A pleasure to watch this beer poured into a glass. Impressive champagne-like head, and appealing pale orange hue. Not particularily fragrant, and almost pear-like in the flavour. Smooth as a baby`s ass, mildly yeasty, and quite enjoyable. Sent it.

    A muddy orange colored beer with a really big, frothy textured, white head rising robustly above. And it sticks around a fair amount of time, settling into a thick soapy ringlet and splotches of light film. Mostly fruit, some yeast in the nose. A sour-sweetness form in complex ways on the tongue. Some yeast, lots of fruit. Big carbonation presence, though not at all offensive. Medium bodied. Nice evening delight.

    Bought a 4 pak sampler with goblet. Not a awful beer easy to drink. Hazy orange pour. Thick white head -fine lacing follows down the glass. Bottle overflowed when opened. Interesting. I know I didn't shake this up! Yeast, fruit.a little caramel and a hint of alcohol. More than one would be fine. Not an Orval, but tasty just the same.

    Overrated, IMHO. Pours like champagne. Tiny bubbles race to the top of this murky golden ale. I smell delicious Belgian yeast. Mouthfeel is light and airy. So far, this is one of the best Belgians that I've seen. But now, the taste! How disappointing. Just yeast and nothing else.
