COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This golden hued ale is marked by passion fruit and herbal notes in the aroma, with subtle suggestions of banana and honey surfacing from its deep and complex palate. The Tripel's finish is remarkably long and soothing.

(bottled, batch #41). Rich gold color, brilliant clarity. Pleasing ripe fruit, bready aroma. Big malt body with lots of fruit flavor and an assertive, herbal bitterness. Lacks a bit of the musty complexity I was hoping for. Dry, lingering finish with peppery alcohol. An excellent beer!

Superb tripel. Soft, hazy gold appearence with filmy head and some lacing. Extremely creamy with mild tropical and citrus fruits and malt. Warming alcohol finish.

Aroma is of ripe fruit and yeast, with a buttery sweetness to it. Body is clear and golden with a fluffy white head. Some ftuit notes in the taste as well as the yeast, and a subtle honey flavor. Finish is long smooth and dry. Good stuff.

MaiBockAddict (1497) - Good Beer Bar Deprived, New Jersey, USA - OCT 26, 2003
UPDATED: NOV 3, 2003 Another ceiling basher. Deep golden color. Foamy white head. Pleasant, but not overwhelming spicy aroma. Notes of Orange peel. Malty and spice palate, with a light, yet sharp butterness. Orange peel once again noted, but also there was a relatively strong hop presence. Very smooth and satisfying.

I lucked out and found this brew at my local liquor store on sale for $3.99 (normally $7.50). Wheaty, somewhat off, cookie aroma. Similar to an Austrian bock in the nose. Banana yellow in color, cloudy, with a small, white head. Good, visible carbonation. Wow! Rich wheaty, strong alcohol presence. Plummy fruit flavor with a semblance of hop profile. Wonderful and warming. Not exactly a session brew at 9% ABV, but this beer is exceptional.

This blondy appears foggy with little diminishing head. I like head, she doesn't cut it. She's probably not supposed to given her style. But I find it insulting none the less. I find her taste interesting and distinctively dry. Overall her golden puss was somewhat enjoyable...not as enjoyable as all you other snobs that have had her.

Batch 35. very hazy medium golden..slight head. aroma is big on clove with a hint of coriander. banana hits me first in the flavor. lots of spices and a hint of toffee in the finish. the 9% ABV is very well-masked.

snoot (286) - Anaheim, California, USA - OCT 19, 2003
Pours a very hazy light golden color, nice head. Bananas and yeast in the sweet nose. Bitter in the finish.

PrinceofNessus (236) - Norman, Oklahoma, USA - OCT 17, 2003
Batch 31 - The smell is light, alcoholic, with a hint of spices and a strong ester overtone. The taste is of light corriander, and bananas at the onset, followed by a yeasty and bitter middle in which the flavor seems to dissappear. kinda tounge-numbing.

Aroma is yesaty, citrusy, slightly spicy. Appearance is murky golden yellow. Flavor is good up front with a bland middle and an uninspiring finish.
