A smooth drinking beer. Just a little much on the Candi dosing. The Belgian yeast aromas are present, would like a little more balance with the hopping.

UPDATED: MAR 12, 2005 Orange in color with virtually no head. Aromas of oranges, bananas, spices and alcohol. Very sweet tasting, fruity, light spices and light alcohol.

Great orange-golden color with moderate banana/clove nose. Alcohol presence is immediate as it touches your lips, however it is very smooth. This is a BIG beer.

this is one of my favorite brews by this brewery i have had it both from the tap at the brewery and bottled from the store. it has a very complex palate. sweeter then most but not to sweet. with a great fore taste and after taste. smooth body. i just can't get enough of this brew or the others at this brewery. this is the only brew they bottle. so if you ever get to michigan this is a must stop usually over 25 beers on tap. this is how belgians should be made

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
rich carmel, soft belgian malts, light alc, way balanced. amber color, no head. I really like this begian careml is a bit cloying, and hops do lack and it may be undementional but I seem to like it. A further note is that my 16 year old brother thinks its better than the other beer he's tried, Labbats.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottled: Copper colored with a small white head. Somewhat spicy aroma with hints of Alcohol. Medium bodied with the taste fairly sweet upfront with a definate banana presence,quickly followed by some spice (clove,nutmeg) with a slightly warming alcohol presence coming through in the finish. Not a typical trippel, but overall a pretty tasty beer.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
An exercise in overpricing. Poured a fiery copper orange, with a thin off-white head. Estery banana aroma. This tasted like circus peanuts- strong banana flavors (like banana candy) dominated any malt complexity that may have existed. Alcohol was hidden well. A syrupy banana brew, and nothing more. It is my final absolution to never drink this again.

spritzy clove and sweet aroma, transparent orange with a frothy head, floral, alcoholic, and strikingly similar to NB Trippel

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Funky rubber band, plum, banana chip, alcohol, and almond nose. Tastes like a loaf of banana bread with the muted fruit flavors and yeast. Tight alcohol.
