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.

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.

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.

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.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Malty floral nose, brown foggy body, flavor is sweet, malty, fruit, carmel, piney, slightly bitter finish, the flavor is lacking that floral taste that seems to define most trippels, the alcohol is very well masked, Dragonmead is a pretty hard core name for a brewery, sounds like the name of some british heavy metal band with hits like ’born to die’ and ’skull beast sacrifice’
