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.

Clear gold color with a medium creamy white head. Very aromatic as each sip gives you a different perspective. It is a subtle sazz hop and a strong yeast, weak bubblegum, straw, and lemongrass. Taste is spicy( pepper, cloves), sweet yeast. Carbonated and sweet finish.

Powerful musky and alcoholic aroma. Pale, white head, not too big, cloudy. Spicy and bitter flavor, strong yeast and obvious alcohol presence. Very Duvel-esque.

UPDATED: SEP 27, 2003 Batch #28...750ml bottle Using my Allagash tulip glass to drink this heavenly nectar, it pours a burnished gold that is perfectly clear from a careful pour. A frothy, off-white head starts out thick, then slowly shrinks down to small cap. It's easily brought back up again with a simple swirl. The lace looks a lot like soap suds overlooked on a car window in the middle of a hot, sticky summer. Wonderfully complex aroma with suggestions of spicy fruits, banana, grape, clove, phenolics, bready yeast, alcohol, and a musty earthy note. Despite this wide array of scents, the aroma comes across as sweet. Stunning... The flavor is sweet and spicy, with lots of fruitiness and honey on the forefront. After the initial rush of sweetness, the flavor shifts to a slighty phenolic one, along with a small burst of black pepper spiciness. The clove, yeast, and musty flavors are in there too, but play secondary roles and stay mostly in the background. The tail end has a rush of warming alcohol, which is highlighted by a touch of hops. Again, stunning… This brew is highly carbonated, but settles to a creamy, soft mouthfeel that is just a bit prickly on the tongue. The body is on the lighter side of medium. Alcohol dries out the finish considerably. An incredibly well-done domestic tripel!

Batch #37. Hazy Golden color, fluffy white head. I smelled apples upon opening. Further inspection revealed pears, yeast, spice, among others. Complex fruity/spicy flavor. Very smooth, finish was not quite as long as described above. I'll definitely drink again.

thedm (4935) - Fort Wayne, USA - SEP 7, 2003
Batch #34: This brew poured a large head of fine to medium sized mostly lasting bubbles that left behind very little lacing and a hazy straw yellow colored body behind. THe aroma is a mild yeasty one and the mouthfeel is smooth with a slight tingly bite to it. The flavor is a mixture of fruity textures with csome clove banana and a high alcohool content noted.
