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.

BLADT (577) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - FEB 1, 2014
Poured from 12 oz bottle. Appears somewhat hazy and wheat colored in glass. Smells woody along with the characteristic yeast smell from style. Tastes of banana and wheat, with subtle sweetness. Has a creamy mouth feel.

HeistAlmighty (1119) - Saint John, New Brunswick, CANADA - JAN 24, 2014
355ml (I think) bottle. Poured a slightly hazy gold colour, big puffy head. Light, fruity aroma, white grape, some coriander, light basement and citrus. More sweetness in the taste than the aroma, some honey, more coriander than I’d prefer. A bit of herbal hops. Light body for the strength. Overall, there are some things about this I like, and some things that I do not, but overall more good than bad.

Bottle. The Tripel Reserve really surprised me. This was a fantastic beer. I’ll look out for this again in the future.

Scrapersnbeer (1467) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - JAN 7, 2014
Aroma of apricot, banana and candied sugar. Darker yellow color. Overall a sweet taste, but the lasting finish is a bitter alcohol. Sinks that way in the gut too, even if not very heavy. This is a more aggressive version of a basic tripel.

Luvystypotables (607) - Virginia Beach, Virginia, USA - JAN 6, 2014
Aroma of cloves, slightly sweet. Gold color with a lasting well laced head. A balanced taste of raisins, fruit and mild spice. A brief palate of dried fruit and spice.

scotchzombie (325) - Raleigh, North Carolina, USA - JAN 2, 2014
Pours a beautiful hazy gold with visible carbonation and a fat, fluffy, bubbly white head. Good wet lacing. Aroma is earthy malt with spicy fruit esters. Very pleasant. Taste is similar but booze dominates over the fruit esters. Grassy for sure and some banana flavor with lemon and honey. Some hop bitterness aftertaste. Very warming and heavy mouthfeel; moderate carbonation. Very drinkable, though a bit boozy. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Smooth malt presence, strong passionfruit and tropical fruit flavor followed by yeasty pepper clove and banana flavors. A really wonderful Tripel!

One of the better American-made tripels. Golden, lots of aroma, mostly tropical fruit. Belgian yeast offers some banana as well.
