3.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
16 ounce tulip glass at Jacoby’s. Banana clove flavors shine through and there’s a smooth, malty aspect that adds to the overall subdued character of it, despite the high abv, which is unnoticeable. The brewer’s description claims that the aroma is mild, but I picked up on some yeast and bread notes that nicely compliment the banana taste. A highly enjoyable beer from a brewery I enjoy more and more with each pint.

Pours murky like beery milk. Aromas of strong bubblegum - bazooka. Good texture on throat here.I think some may shy away from this based on colour - finings for general population? In any case, it’s a good beer for me. Tap at Hopcat.

I always reach for this beer at the party store. It has a great bubblegum Palate. Truly a great Belgian style ale.

On tap at The Mondial de la biere2012 in Montréal.The color is a bit hazy amber with a thin beige head.The aroma is of hops and citrus fruits mostly oranges and spicies. The taste is very bitter of hops the alcohol % is a bit noticeable.It also has a certain sweetness to it that comes from all the good ingredients, very pleasing.

12oz bottle, thanks to Jay. Hazy yellow / orange color, plenty particles floating in the body. Minimal white head. Light, smooth carbonation, bigger body, more dry texture. Lightly sour taste, little bitter. Big banana aroma, zest, light spice. Interesting tripel

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
A strong contender from the Americans in the Belgian trippel style. Pour is a a rich golden amber with almost a finger of head. Hint is Belgian test by far, with floral notes and some citrus. Palatable and hides te high alcohol content well.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
The aroma is reminiscent of a freshly opened Bazooka bubblegum surrounded by a tantalizing trippel floral note. On first taste the flavors dance across your tongue with cherries, banana, and citrus. The finale is of banana and grape with a floral hint and finally with the characteristic tripel finish. After a few moments you feel as if you have just finished a wonderful portion of banana nut bread.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a murky orange with a small white head. Fruity aroma of tangerine, lemon and dark fruit. There is a strong bubble gum aroma to it. Taste definitely has a bubble gum flavor, not unlike Bazooka gum or that cardboard like gum that came with baseball cards. Past that I am getting cherries, banana, grapefruit, dark fruit, sweet tart candy, and citrus. Sweet, sour and bitter all at once. Finishing taste is banana nut bread. Palate is creamy and carbonated. Overall a complex and different beer. I can enjoy one of these, but don’t think I could do more than that.
