On tap at the pub. Pours a light golden hue with minimal white head. Decent lacing. Smells of wheat and light malt mixed with a characteristic Belgian yeast aroma. A light malt flavor with minimal hops. Some spice component. Medium body with gentle carbonation. A nice beer.

(Served in a chalice)
A- This beer pours a slight hazy golden yellow with a thin snow white head that fades to a thick ring and is supported by a gentle carbonation of bubbles.
S- The dry apple skin have a fusel hint to them and a slightly sweet pils malt blends into a soft dry green hop finish.
T- The fusel alcohol hint takes on more of an apple cider note as the beer opens and a nice white cheese rind hint comes through in the finish. There is a fruity jam ester hint in the finish that compliments the dry green hop notes that linger for a moment.
M- the light mouthfeel has a gentle alcohol warmth and a soft fizz hint.
O- The slightly sweet malt with the fruity esters give this beer a bit of sweetness but the hops in the finish are just enough to off set that nicely. This beer taste young but very drinkable.

Tried the Lucy Belgium Trippel at Haymarket Brewery during a recent visit. The beer was clear golden in color with very thin white head that did not lace. The smell had some malt and subtle notes of fruit. The taste was truly belgium with a slight hop kick. There was hints of faint fruit mixed in with the typical belgium malt/sweetness. It is a full bodied beer with slight carbonation, higher ABV make the beer somewhat tough. Overall it wasn't too bad of a beer....better than other Belgiums I have had.

poured from tap into glass. Pours a clear yellow/gold color with a small head.
Good aromas of spices, creams, and some citrus with a touch of florals. Lacking depth though.
full bodied, but really lacking on both the mid and back end. Some nice flavors of citrus and creams, but not much flavor going either.
this was forgettable. It's drinkable, but forgettable.

A - Not a good looking beer, looks like apple juice. Seriously, pour yourself some apple juice, that is what this beer looks like. I don't know what else to say.
S - Yeasty, slight fruit notes. Yawn.
T - Yeast, fruits, some slight floral and herbal hops taste. It does taste better than it smells at least.
M - Medium bodied, higher than normal dose of carbonation.
O - Not offensive, but this is not a particularly good beer. Can easily pass on this one.

Served in a chalice-eque glass at the brewpub.
Another stop on the Second Annual Bachelor Party Free-For-All! This one pours a hazy sunset gold topped by a finger of off-white foam. The nose comprises sweet orange zest, banana, clove, and light Belgian candi sugar. The taste holds notes of lemon rind, orange zest, black pepper, clove, and grapefruit zest. Plenty of hops abound...in fact, too much in this regard for my tastes. Basically, a hoppy tripel. Hmm... The body is a light medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a dry finish. Overall, an alright beer, but something tells me tripels were not meant to be this hop-forward...

This has a clear, golden color. There’s a floral aroma to it as well as a honeyed, floral flavor. It’s thin bodied and drops off rapidly. Doesn’t live up to it’s namesake!
I didn’t realize this at the time I tried this but this baby clocks in at a whopping 10%.

On-tap at Haymarket. Served in a 4oz taster stange.
A - Lightly hazed dark golden straw body. Finger of creamy foam, glass-coating lace, and a thin persistent cap.
S - Nose is very understated. Yeast and bread mostly. I even let this warm up quite a bit, but all I got was a light fruity note when I was just about finishing my glass.
T - Taste is better. A little more of a typical tripel, with yeast, stone fruits, and sweet malt character. There's a lightly bitter herbaceous finish.
M - Alcohol is well-hidden. Again, there's a bit too much carbonation for my liking, but it's not inappropriate for the style. Medium body, and a lightly sticky texture.
D - This is an easy way to get drunk, but not the most interesting beer. The Beaubien is a much better Belgian-style offering.
