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.

Looks exactly like a Chimay White. Prominent tangy yeasty flavor. Fruity aroma that somewhat disappears in the taste. Hints of grape flavor.

Cloudy pale yellow color with a medium white head and lasting lace. The aroma is slightly sweet and lemony with a touch of spice and yeast. The flavor is spicy, yeasty and malty with a hint of citrus. Heavy bodied, warm in the throat, tingly on the tongue.

Batch 19: Hazy golden peach. Big white foamy head. Aroma of carambola, honeydew, light fruit. Yeast is dominant flavor, medium bodied, light footed, alcohol is evident yet not too dominating. Finishes spicy, white pepper, dry, honey, and terribly pleasant...very enjoyable!

Batch #26. This beer is excellent. Tons of fruit throughout, including the above mentioned passion fruit, sour apples, and a touch of citrus. Also a nice dash of spice (mostly clove and a little cinnamon) adds to this delectable beer. Enjoy it if you can.

Uglyradio (791) - Greenville, South Carolina, USA - OCT 24, 2002
UPDATED: FEB 24, 2003 10/24/02 Batch #27: Golden yellow, big white head, nice fruity and yeasty aroma. Bananas and spices dominate the flavor. Very smooth and enjoyable, with just the right amount of carbonation. Long malty sweet finish, great belgian style ale. 02/24/03 Batch #34: Pours a clear golden yellow with a big white head that lingers. It has a fruity, yeasty aroma with a touch of cloves and banana. Medium body and medium carbonation, the flavor is all spices, malts, banana, and honey-this is a fantastic brew.

goz (359) - Chelmsford, Massachusetts, USA - OCT 24, 2002
UPDATED: MAR 30, 2003 750ml bottle, batch #26. Pours a medium-dark, hazy golden color, with a large frothy white head that doesn't want to go away, clinging to the sides of the glass for dear life all the way down. Aroma is crisp - citric (lemon), spicy (clove), yeasty (banana), and light malt (doughy) . Flavor is also crisp, sweet start, making way for some banana and clove to coat the tongue in the middle, ends with some citrus - lemon and grapefruit mostly. Full body, complex flavors that get more impressive as the bottle gets more empty, only the slightest hint of alcohol at the end.

Batch #28. Like their own description, subtle banana & honey flavors. It has a great nose; reminds me a bit of a white beer. It’s cloudy yellow w/ a big white frothy head.

VA Homebrewer (525) - Portsmouth, Virginia, USA - OCT 15, 2002
Batch #28: Wow. Big nose with pepper, cherry, strawberry and yeast all present. Filled half the kitchen with this wonderful aroma. Very fruity up front(banana, strawberries, cherries) with coriander showing through towards the middle as the beer leans toward peppery spiciness. Finish is spicy, nice and dry, and has a pronounced warming alcohol effect. This beer is a sight to behold - hazy golden with a large, frothy head that wants to stick around for a few minutes before completely dissappearing. Body and mouthfeel are just right. Sits nicely on the tongue and doesn’t leave a pronounced or long aftertaste. Marvelous.
