Light orange color. Medium white lacy head. Aroma is dark fruits and spice. A medium bodied Tripel. Malts are fruity and sweet. Hops are slightly spicy. Touches of orange and caramel. Nicely balanced. Very smooth. No alcohol bite at 9%. Nice beer. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly sweet.

Sampled @ Strong Ale Fest San Diego

The beer pours a clear amber color with a generous head that is creamy and light tan in color with the lace forming a fine sheet upon the glass. Malt dominates the nose, sweet and fresh, a pleasant sniffer with the start lightly sweet and decently malted, top is moderate in feel. Finish is moderately carbonated the hops prickly in their spiciness also quite dry and a decent drinking beer.

Strauss's effort at a Belgian style, this one was on tap at the Carlsbad location. The bartender informed me that this was last holiday season's special brew, a mixture of three special ales, and one that they would be having as a regualr part of their beer menu.

The amber body was slightly hazy and there was a smallish off-white head. The nose was mostly malty but also gave of fruity hints which came through fairly forcefully in the flavor. This is a decent tasting ale that is much more mild than the Belgians it mimics, but that may not be all bad as this is probably more drinkable than most of the true Belgian ales from a fullness and strength standpoint. This brew has a medium body and a sweet finish. Not bad overall, but not one I'd crave.
