Pours a hazy dull yellow with small white foam head with small suspended particulate. Wonderful banana and bubblegum nose. Unfortunately, the flavor doesnít hold up. Yeasty, and bready, and sweet candi sugar. Very high carbonation. Nice though.

phaleslu (7543) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - SEP 15, 2010
330 ml bottle shared at The Royale on the Tuesday night tripel tasting; I think the guy got it from Wine and Cheese Place, though. Pours a cloudy dark gold color with a frothy eggshell white head. Notes of floral hops, Belgian yeast, candi sugar, honey, alcohol, and sweet malts. Medium-bodied, with a lot of frothy carbonation and a yeasty mouthfeel with a little acidic bite. In a night of tasting many tripels, this one kind of got lost in the shuffle. It isnít bad but didnít stand out in any way.

Ernest (6727) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - SEP 10, 2010
Bottle. Head is initially average sized, frothy, white, mostly diminishing. Body is hazy medium to dark yellow, bottle conditioned. Aroma is lightly to moderately malty (toasted grain), lightly hoppy (flowers), lightly yeasty (basement), with light notes of honey, gum, wet cement, alcohol/solvent. Flavor is moderately to heavily sweet, lightly acidic, lightly to moderately bitter. Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly acidic, moderately bitter. Medium body, velvety texture, lively carbonation, moderately alcoholic. Well, itís better than the Blond, at least by a little bit. Still phenolic in an unpleasant, solvent-like way, but not as strong here...plus some sweet honey/gum notes help. Not quite as husky. Not bad, but kinda plain.
