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.

Very nice Tripel. Poured in a Chimay glass it looked like Duvel, but the head didn't last as long. Peppery and fruity, with a dry finish but good body. Thoroughly enjoyable.

UPDATED: DEC 6, 2009 2009-12-05. Lightly hazy golden body, not much head. 3+ Flavour is mildly alcoholic, modest pale malts, toasty touches. Aroma is mild, light citrusy hops? Muted yeast. 6+ Average palate is very lightly carbonated. Okay, but not well served by being on cask in my opinion. 7/3+/6+/3/14 3.4 Cask at Coles, Buffalo

January 2006. Bottle, upwards of 14 months old. Hazy golden yellow body with a big fluffy white head. Sweet palt malt in aroma, mild hops and alcohol. Dry alcohol in flavour, light spicey pepper notes, pale malt, light floral notes. Average to medium palate. (3+) Very nice, but not spectacular. 7/4/6+/3+/14-15 - 3.6

December 2003. Dark yellow gold colour. Floral and bitter. Had a bit of a catch in my throat quality to it. Couldn’t wrap my head around it. First time I wanted to tell a beer "It’s not you, it’s me!" Batch 37. 6/3/6/3/13 - 3.1

Absolutely, without a doubt, the best, most enjoyable tripel I've had...ever! The only lacking point is a SLIGHTLY weak aroma (which is very nice otherwise!). Appearance would have benefitted from a larger head, but the color is great! Flavor is wonderful...dry, spicy, and full...and the finish is nice too! Really an exceptional example of the style!

750 ml. caged & corked bottle. Batch # 39. No freshness date that I can see. Poured out a hazy, bright orange color, with a humongus head on it. The head slowly faded to a large yeasty island floating on top of the beer. Aromas were of tropical fruit, and a slight lemon aroma as well. I think this bottle has passed it's prime, but I'll drink it all the same. Tasted ok, malty as all hell, and the hops were somewhat subdued by the lemon taste. I never noticed any banana aromas, but maybe this bottle didn't have any. Finished somewhat dry, had a thinnish body to it as well. Had a decent alcohol kick to it. Fairly good example of the style, I only wish I could have tried it a bit fresher.

(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.

frylock (1135) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - OCT 28, 2003
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.
