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.

Dark cloudy gold. Creamy head and spotty lacing. Biscuits in the nose with some yeast. Apricots and pears. Some citrus hops, more floral though. Some spices along with hints of bananas. Flavor contains bananas, yeast, apricot, some spices, citrus hops, some lemon. Light acidity. Fuzzy palate with a medium body and finishes malty.

UPDATED: MAY 19, 2005 Grapefruit, pine, floral hop nose with notes of oranges, almonds, lightly spicy yeast and a good supporting malt base. Opaque golden orange with fizzy white head that recedes to ring. Marzipan, sweet malt - incredibly bitter for the style but that’s just an afterthought. The sweet, fruity, malty flavours dominate. Excellent body is medium-full. Strong carbonation that still manages to remain unobtrusive. Bottle. Enjoyed with MartinT and Rastacouere. Rerated with largely the same comments and scored 7-4-9-4-16=4.0 on 15-May-05 with beerbuzzmontreal, MartinT, Olivier_MTL, Rastacouere and Yowie. Original rating (7/10/2004) 9-4-9-5-18=4.5.

TipsyMcStager (1139) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 4, 2004
Aroma of citrus fruits including orange, sweet. Pours a cloudy yellow, nice head and lacing. Flavour is mostly sweet with that baking soda note and an alcohol finish. Fairly dry and quite smooth. A solid tripel.

Hazy golden light brown. Spicey lemon aroma. Taste is spicey, fruity, zesty, lemons, and light hops. Alcohol also comes out some. This is a very good beer. But, I liked Allagash Four better.

atpayne (615) - Zionsville, Indiana, USA - JUN 29, 2004
Batch 44. Pale yellow with a large open white head and very rapid carbonation. Becomes cloudy as the yeast from the bottom enters the glass. The aroma is sweet, wheaty, yeasty, and spicy. Spice seems to be from hops and other spiced items. It’s very smooth and balanced. The taste is a mixture of alcohol, honey and spices along with some orange peaking through. The spiced finish rests very nicely in the mouth. Very nice beer.

Poured slightly cloudy with a wonderful head- fluffy and snow white. Nice spicy aroma. Beautiful roundness on the tongue. A very fine example of this style.

mike mcneil (660) - St Augustine, Florida, USA - JUN 13, 2004
Pours sunshine gold with some haziness. Fluffy white head which dissapates, but decent lacing. Mouth-watering aromas of lemongrass, honey, yeast rolls and oranges. Pleasant spritzy carbonation which quickly settles into just a silky smooth honey-drippin’ texture. Flavors of lemon, spices, banana and doughy bread abound. Overall a sweet profile maskng the 9% alcohol completely. Great complexity and a beautiful sweet, but slightly tart finish. Good stuff and a great deal.

Bottle. Medium dark golden color with some cloudiness. Aroma is a bit spicy with malt and flowery notes. Taste is excellent. Dry and yeasty with subtle spice. This is my stand-by for triples because it’s quality and cheep.
