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.

very gold and surprisingly clear for a tripel. The yeast seemed to aggregate a bit more, actually a lot seemed to have dried out in the top of the neck. Very foamy head, soft mouthfeel. Fig, raisen sweetness upfront. The finish is long, surprisingly dry and nicely bitter

Large white head, lasting, lots of lace. Beautiful nose, citrus, melon and fruit. Medium body, creamy mouthfeel. Hazy gold color. Fruity, peppery flavors, yeasty, pineapple and more melon. Nice 9%er! Finish is medium dry, fruity. Think i,ve had this beer in my cellar for a little over a year now, still yummy, nice.

UPDATED: AUG 23, 2009 Batch #47 – This beer has a sparkling clear golden body with very lively medium bubbles careening to certain death in a nice pillowy white head. The aroma is that of yeast, citrus (orange), spices (clove, a touch of ginger), and banana. The flavor is outstanding; the banana come out more in the flavor then if did in the aroma. All of the other flavors mingle together nicely to provide a wonderful flavor spectrum. The body is medium-full with a thick mouth coating finish, that also manages to be crisp and warming. There is no evidence of alcohol in the flavor and only a tad on the palate. An excellent American brewed Beligan Tripel.

Hazy yellow/gold body. Tremendous creamy white head no matter how gingerly you attempt to pour. Smells of pine cones, apple juice and yeast. Tastes of malt, clove, apples and pears. Taste is sweet, light and tasty. Everything about this beer seems careful most likely demonstrative of how this beer was made. Very well made beer and most importantly, delicious. Sampled from a 750ml bottle (Batch# 33) with my cousin and good friend Ryan.

UPDATED: JAN 25, 2005 Like juicy fruit gum. Very fruity. Banana, citrus. Like a German hefe that grew up to be Belgian ale. Hint of floral, clove and spice as well. Slightly slick texture. A US Belgian done very right.

(Bottle) Pours a hazy golden color with a large white head. Fruit and floral aroma with flavors of banana and honey make for an enjoyable drinking experience.

Very very good. Nice pour with a foggy golden color and a large white head. Hoppy aroma, some fruit hints in the taste. Very enjoyable!

Eyedrinkale (3213) - Astoria, New York, USA - DEC 21, 2003
UPDATED: APR 20, 2005 Pours with a nice white head with average lacing. Nice orange and spicy aroma. Very nice. Another rating pours with a nice head that falls flat on it’s face. More sweet orange.

stubby (334) - Santee, California, USA - DEC 16, 2003
Not my favorite triple. I thought it was too hoppy for the style, hops of a bitter pale ale in a triple. BUT, the one I had was fresh, and I bet this would age wonderfully, so I'll put some aside.

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.
