Bottle brought back from MI- pours clear golden, bright white head that fades. Nose of bubblegum, banana, vanilla, and some hay. Subdued mouthfeel. Creamy, sweet, with traditional tripel notes. Better US interpretation than most. Quite drinkable

From old notes, tasted with Curtis and some friends in Nashville, probably some time near the summer of 2012, from a bottle. Pours cloudy pale yellow with a thick white head that leaves thick lace. The nose is bready, vegetal with asparagus, some spicy Belgian yeast. The flavor is more focused on the spice with the same nice bread malt, and just a touch of the vegetal note on the back. The body is full with average, smooth carbonation and a long spicy yeast finish.

We were not a fan of this one. Amber in glass. Fruity aroma. Tastes like bananas and bubblegum. A bit too sweet.

Not a favorite, but I have a feeling that is because the flavors were so complex. Probably too much for my unsophisticated palate. First taste was somewhat not good, but did end up enjoying it by the end of the glass.

Very tasty, a little overly sweet though.
If you like a strong ale with only subtle hopped up bitterness, this is worth a shot.
