COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This is the ultimate Belgian style. The very high gravity of this beer is balanced by the smoothness of its finish. Banana and Clove aromas come from the Belgian yeast strain combining with the generous dose of Belgian Candi Sugar. The Saaz hops help to give this beer a balanced bitterness with no noticeable hop aroma.

UPDATED: APR 25, 2005 I’m surely not a Belgian-phile (?), but I really liked this one, mostly because the yeasty taste was more subdued and it was quite spicy. Makes me wish that Dragonmead would bottle more of their stuff. Guess I’ll have to wait until I’m 21 and can go to the pub.

AustinMilbarge (681) - Denver, Colorado, USA - SEP 17, 2004
On tap: This went down the hatch nice and easy, but that could have had something to do with my level of intoxication when I drank it. Well crafted tripel. Cloves, a little spicy. Hazy, dark brown.

Bright orange with a nice spicy nose. Sweet but not too much. Slightly sticky body. An overall good Tripel.

flemdawg (531) - Naples, Florida, USA - SEP 7, 2004
Copper in color with a white head. Sweet, sweet, sweet aroma and then a kick of yeasts at the end, as well as some bananas. Lots of flavors like bananas, sweet fruits, honey and yeasts. A wonderful treat.

JCW (1274) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - SEP 7, 2004
Copper colored, translucent, slight white head. Aroma has medicinal quality to it along with a burnt yeasty brown sugar scent. Flavor is sweet and slightly burnt. I think there is alot of dark belgium candi sugar in this one. Syrupy body. Sweet and heavy finish.

UPDATED: SEP 24, 2004 Sampled this beer at the Great Taste of the Midwest in Madison WI. Even though my scores on this are accurate and well researched, Da Man wants me to say more about the beer, so I will. This beer can best be described as well beyond great. I had seconds oc this bad boy, which with over 500 brews available, is pretty impressive.
