COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This traditional Belgian-style triple is strong, fruity, and slightly sour. It starts with a big malt presence, followed up by a pronounced candy sugar sweetness, and balanced with a spicy hop finish. A must-try. Ask your server for a taste!

flat pour with no head and looks like apple cider. Sweet bubble gum , sour fruits and more sourness. This is not going well......Very flat......I think it might be a bad bottle......usual tripple flavors and slight alcohol on the tail end.......wow this isnt very good Im gonna dump this and try another bottle.......hold on.......nope...... extremely dissapointed.

From 10-Beer Flight at Arbor Brewing Company Brewpub on December 1, 2008. Ultra-light yellow-white color! Very nice lacing. Super light aroma. Its flavor, though, is so much better. Light, but just a little sweet. You can detect a little alcohol presence amongst the lemon and hops. Good, but their dubbel is better in my opinion. Could use more alcohol for a triple.

12 oz bottle. Pours a cloudy yellowish brown with lots of sediment. The head is small and white (even after a vigorous pour) and quickly diminishes to a thin collar.

The aroma is very subdued - bready grains and some bananas and cloves.

The flavor is sweet malts, a little banana and clove, and a pretty harsh alcoholic bitter finish. The mouthfeel is medium to full and slightly syrupy with almost no carbonation.

Overall, not that great of a tripel - it’s under-carbonated and pretty subdued other than the alcohol.

Excellent taste, it taste more like a whit should. Great malt with a balance of hops. Fulfills traditional expectations of a tripel yet brings a modern hue of spice. A great conversation piece.

jeremyd365 (124) - Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA - APR 7, 2008
Appeared a medium/dark-orange in the glass with minimal head. It smelled stongly of citrus fruit and slight hops. It tasted fruity/whiney with little bite. It was definitely a smooth drink, which is probably why the menu says "limit 3".

On tap @ Coles Buffalo NY. Thanks Metzger. Pours a golden color with big white frothy head. Hefe clove & banana aromas. Starts of with banana & clove hefe features then hits you with the Belgian yeasty & earthiness. Somewhat swet also. Decent

Tap at HDG Daze of the Devil. Pale golden colour with a thick white head. Aroma is quite nice and spicy. Apricot and light orange peel. A bit of clove and light banana with a soft sweetness, light honeyish character but the beer is generally quite dry and drinkable. Pepper and lightly alcoholic

On draft; poured a gold color. Aroma of banana, yeast and spices. Flavor was pretty dry to me. Pretty ordinary for the style.
