COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A classic golden ale with esters of banana and bubble gum. This beer pours with a creamy head and ends with a sweetness of light Belgian candi sugars. Our brewmaster aged this ale for an extended period to round out the flavors. A great traditional Belgian brew.

Reviewed from notes. Recvd in trade. This was poured into a chalice. The appearance was a hazy orange to brown color with a slim one finger white head that dies within a minute leaving messy lacing just going all over the place. The smell had some spiced apples, light bready yeast, subdued pepper and a light clove. The taste was spicy and sweet and added a light grassy taste in it as well. On the palate, this one sat about a medium in body with a fair sessionable rate about it. The carbonation was good for the style and for me, slightly sharp but still smooth enough to go down the ol’ hatch. Overall, good tripel of having again.

Draft at Vivant. Pours a nice golden color. Aroma and taste are sweet with fruits and yeast.

Sampled on draught at the brewery. Mild estery nose, fruity and floral with yeasty notes. Mild honey. Dark orange-amber clear with thin head. Medium body with medium-high carbonation. Starts sweet with lots of yeasty esters, bubblegum, and honey. Melon. Sweet finish with ligh warming, nice tripel.

Can: Bright amber color, more clarity than I’d expect from a tripel. A touch of frothy, white head dies down quicker than expected as well. Aroma is full of Belgian yeast, light bubblegum, clove, a hint of Candi sugar sweetness, some grassy hops, & a touch of phenol notes. Taste lots of sweet banana-like esters, bubblegum, clove, orange zest, dry & spicy yeast, toasted bread, mild honey. Starts off nice, but leads into a bit of a phenolic & spicy yeast mess in the finish. Little too spicy. But still not awful... Just needs more refinement. Front end gets 3.6, the finish gets 2.6, so the beer gets the average, I guess. Decent overall.

Tallboy from flandersned-thanks, Steve! Had it with grilled apricots just like the can suggested. Worked really well. Deep gold. Belgian yeast, cloves, on the nose. Pretty full bodied, not as sweet to me as others have said, but probably was fighting the fruit and goat cheese I had it with. Solid, and a good tripel, I just don’t love tripels.

Can. Pours golden. Small white head. Fruity aroma. Flavor includes banana & spicy fruitiness. Sweet finish. I really liked this one. Enjoyed the banana and spice. Its muted, but very appropriate. I’d definitely drink this one again.

Golden sweet beer with a caramel aroma and a crisp malt taste. It is good, but not really for me because it is very sweet with hints of banana and cotton candy. I really like how Brewery Vivant has food pairings for each beer listed on each can.

From the can - thanks Sean! Clove, banana, sweet malt, caramel, and some candied sugar on the aroma. Taste is fairly sweet with complimentary clove, some alcohol bite, and caramel/candied sugar. Smooth mouthfeel. Pretty nice.
