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.

3.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Somewhat hefeweizen-like in nose, banana esters, but longer, fuller sweetness and hints of spicy alcohol. First sip is tingly and sweet. Sugary, rich middle, and long dry alcoholic, spicy finish. From the bottle this is a slightly complex, fun beer.
