Poured into an over sized wine glass and was very disappointed with a head that fizzled to nothing like a lemon-lime soda.

The taste itself was pretty good, but I was so surprised to see the head barely form and then disappear that I spent the rest of my time with this brew trying to figure out if I had a bad bottle.

Some other reviews describe a similar experience. Big disappointment especially since the flavors in this beer seem to be some of the best I have tested. But where's the head?

Awesome beer with a smooth taste and then it kicks in. Nice buzz will start after the second beer. The great taste keeps you coming back for more. Purchased the bottles in Canada. I purchased a 6 pack but also noticed a larger bottle. I definitely will be going back to the store for that! This beer is a must try.

This is one of my favorite beers to beer. It's spiciness is perfect for a cold winter night, but it is still crisp so it is refreshing enough for a scorching summer night. I recently was served this at a beer tasting and it was good even in a little 3oz. glasss, and stood up to the other beers on the menu.

First experience was with a 0:5L and the another and then tried to get off the bar stool not knowing the ETOH.%. Lesson learned!

Beautiful light colored, highly aromatic, decepitively smooth with champagne like qualities, which is where this beer best fits! I celebrate with it, and you should too.

Walk home.

Pours beautifully with an everlasting head. Perfect representation of the style

Citrus Fruits, a bit of clove, a little what, does not justify the taste

Citrus, cloves, maybe a bit of vanilla. Highly drinkable, hides the alcohol way too well. Dryness at the end is refreshing and leaves you coming back for more.

Dryness at the end is crisp and refreshing. It is really hard to believe that this beer is a 9. This is way too drinkable.

One of the better beers I have tried and one that would definitely be my staple if it wasn't 6 bucks a bottle. Balance is key and this beer nails it on the dime. 4.5

A - hazy dark yellow. Head desapeared pretty quickly.
S - Very fruity (stone fruits), yeast, bready
T - Bready, spicy, yeast and stone fruits. Very light hops in the end.
M - The body is full. It is sweet but not cloying. Medium to low drinkability.
O - Very good tripel. But I still prefer Tripel Karmeliet (the top tripel for me) and De Dulle Teve (it is more dry so more easy drinking)

look: 4.5 | smell: 5 | taste: 5 | feel: 5 | overall: 5

Appearance: Golden and frothy with a quickly dissipating half inch head. Poured into stemmed tulip glass, nice lacing down the glass as it was drunk. Some bottle sediment leaked into second pour, a bit cloudy but still a beautiful beer.

Smell: An ephemeral experience, with clove, apricot, and banana notes. A spicy, almost pepper note was detected, but I can't really place it.

Taste: No obvious alcohol in the beginning, with a strong apricot and citrus note that gives way to a bit of spice as the beer warms up. Alcohol is restrained throughout the tasting, keeping the citrus and apricot front and center.

Mouthfeel: Smooth, but somehow bold at the same time. Almost creamy. Dangerously drinkable, I may go through three to four pours of this one before even noticing it.

Overall: My first tripel, and a wonderful departure from my days of college PBR. A beer I can easily see taking me from being a wine guy to a beer guy. I love it, looking forward to learning more.

For my inexperienced beer palate, it is the best I've ever tasted, but judging from the other reviews about this beer, I'm certainly not alone in thinking so.
