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 #28: translucent golden appearence with a thin beading, frothy snow-white head. Intensely complex fruity aroma; apple, mango, passion fruit, peach. Itís like walking through an orchard. The flavour is mellow and fruity at first with a candyish/warming middle and a nice dry finish. Itís a toss up between this and New Belgium for the best American trippel.

Batch 28: Hazy lemon color with small bubbles. First sip tasted like fresh cotton candy melting in the mouth. Mellows into a warm sugar alcohol sensation. In the middle thereís a dry grass flavor coupled with an acidic banana taste. Well rounded triple.

Bottle from batch #30. Golden color with a white head and lots of rising bubbles. Sweet candy, citrus, orange, honey, and fruits infuse this beer with character and punch. The creamy and smooth body was a highlight compared to many harsh tripels. I canít wait to have this one again.

Yellow orange with a beautiful off white head. Full flavours of wheat, yeast, sweet spices. A grassy field on a warm summerís day. A perfectly pleasant farmhouse feel. Wonderful.

pivo (2646) - GERMANY - DEC 11, 2002
Spicy, yeasty nose; hazy orange color and a lacy head. Sweet, sugary start with hints of light honey and apples in the middle. Broad, slightly dry peppery finish. Great balance, medium body and all around a quality brew. The alcohol stays rather in the background but provides a warming effect on the mouth and in the swallow.

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.
