Pours lighter gold with a medium white head which sticks around, leaves great lacing. Aroma is Belgian yeast, citrus, candied sugar and pear. Taste is sweet with moderating bitters, but overall pretty sweet. Medium bodied with a sticky finish. Good carbonation leads to a lively mouth feel.

12oz bottle into Trappist glass. Hazy golden yellow color with half-finger of white head. Aroma notes of fruit (banana, pear, lemon), spices (clove dominates), honey, bread and yeast. Taste hits with the fruity/spicey Belgian yeast, tart, balanced with sweet honey malt and light hop notes. Medium body, lively carbonation and dry finish. Very good Tripel.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
750 ml bottle, batch 171.
Poured into a Delirium Tremens glass. Pale amber color with two fingers of head that refuses to retreat. It sits so perfectly in the glass.
All sorts of fruit on the nose: banana, lemon, pear and lemongrass.
It tastes also exactly like it smells: banana, lemon and bread. Then at the end is a yeasty/bitter taste, which was out of place. On the pleasant side, there is a nice alcohol after taste.
Smooth and bubbly, then crisper at the end.
Superb looking and good smelling. The taste was right on until the end with the yeast/bitter taste that just did not belong. Maybe it was this batch or bottle.

4.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
Batch #189. Gorgeous head, nice cloudy golden color. Nose is full of banana and yeast. The taste is... wow. In fact, that’s exactly what I said out loud after my first sip. Flavors are also banana and yeast with a little spiciness at the finish. Hides its high ABV expertly. A world-class beer.
