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.

Batch # 30: Banana, spices, fruit and yest are coming right into my nose. Nice orange color, little frothy head leaving brussels lace on the glas. Peppery but ligth flavor, also yeast, apricots and honey. Smooth, silky warm finish. Our cat liked the aroma - catnip in this brew? Great brew.

Batch 27: Yeasty, very slight soapy aroma before it warmed. Looked very nice...good head, good retention in it. strawberry blonde color. Full-bodied taste was rather smooth, sweet & spicy. Alcohol was masked ridiculously well.

Batch 25. Poured a slightly hazy yellow/gold. Nice head and great lacing top to bottom. Tangy citrus with light spices in the background. Yeast, light sugars, some alcohol presence, and long thin sweet/peppery, mild hop finish. top quality brew.

Batch #30. What a magnificent brew, and to think that it was made right here in the USA. Glowing golden in color with a huge white head. Aroma of tropical fruits and yeast, banana and bread.(like a wheat beer without the earthy tones) Flavor is long and lasts long after the last drop. Complex with the same banana and tropical fruits, yeast and spices that were exibited in the nose. Mellows in the finish with the yeast and malts being evident. TThere is so much more to this beer that I cannot put words to. It is, on the downside, a little bit on the abrupt side.with a little bit of aging however it would be on the top of the list of world class brews.

Batch 24. Stellar. Incredibly smooth. Somewhat less head than I expected. Very similar to Duvel, one of my favorites. You aren’t really aware of the alcohol in this. These guys can make a beer. I think that their Belgians are even better tham Omengang’s!

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

Vac (2445) - San Diego, California, USA - NOV 21, 2002
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.
