4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Light tan color, lots of white head, strong sweet and fruity aroma, slightly creamy sweet flavor. This is a good example of an abbey tripel with lots of overlapping complex tastes.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: APR 9, 2009 Poured a hazy reddish amber. Smells of warm yeasty sweetness, banana, and a lot of simcoe hops. Flavor is a sticky sweet blend of banana, bubblegum, clove, ans some spice. Pronounced simcoe hop body and finish. Very well hidden alcohol. Nice medium body.

this beer has a problem with consistency as mentioned zeswaft. Poured a utlra clear honey with a white head. Aroma was candy sugar, spiced apple juice, amd ueast/ Flavor was apple juste, pepper, wood, sugar, and yeast...it also had some "not good" funk going on with it...very unbalanced. Extremely undercarbonated.

Let me start by saying iím standing next to cmubeerman and sersdf and we all have our own bottle of this. In a class all three look different and taste different. Mine smells like rubber and wood. Flavor is funky, a little candy sugar, a little wood, and rubber, and some bubble gum ester. luckily it will get me drunk. Mine is copper cloudy with little white head. not good.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
sweet candyish aroma, not particularly strong but itís nice. pretty sweet flavor too. little carbonation, pretty opaque (though my friendsí are really clear). a good amount of banana actually, and a little spices. heavy on the belgian yeasty flavor. good tripel. wow, really low on alcohol for the abv. towards the bottom the appearance is actually kinda ugly because of a lot of yeast chunks, so iím going with 4 for appearance instead

Think I got a bad bottle. Will re-rate if so. Rotten vegetables and nothing else.

This beer surprised me. Dont pour it to fast. Spicy malt and sweet flavors make this a pleasent beer to drink.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Light golden pour shows very active, almost fizzy carbonation while the 7-up like head erupts from the liquid more than anything else and is simply too active too last. Ridiculously heavy filtration rivals with any macroís. The nose is jokingly loaded with coriander that dominates the spicy, americanised under-attenuating yeast strain. Residual sugars abound, letting a honeyed and floral spicy malt character lingering on the palate and artificially thickening the beer. Hard to drink at this level of sweetness, but the high carbonation level I guess could be an help if there was just more to put your teeth on. Simplistic esters battle it out with fuelic alcohol and sugar cane. Crazy how they fare so well with the dark ones and this comes across as a mouthful of coriander.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz. bottle. a pale golden yellow, just the slightest bit hazy and a ring of lace. aroma is yeasty with a touch of lemon zest. taste is of biscuit, sweet fruits, more yeast and some clove with a medium body.
