Excellent beer, For a very high volume by alchohol rated beer you would never know it. Smooth, that leaves a wonderful aftertaste.

On tap from the Michigan Brewers Guild Winter Beer Festival (though Iíve sampled it before). Simply one of the best Tripels made. Just the right level of sweetness and spice with an outstanding smooth finish. I always think it tastes a little like honey as well. One of my favorites.

UPDATED: OCT 21, 2012 I am sure other people will like this beer, but it just wasnít for me. Aroma of banana and cloves, looks beautiful with an amber/light brown color, very foggy. Tastes just how it smells, which is what I couldnít get past. Donít let a bad rating stop you, but itís not for me.

This 12 oz bottle was courtesy of Strykzone. . Pours a cloudy gold color with a rich foamy white head and good sticky lacing rings,. Nose of banana, clove, bubblegum and ripe fruit. Rich in body and with a smooth mouthfeel. The flavor is complex with some pepper spice mixed in banana, clove, bubblegum and ripe fruitbanana, clove, bubblegum and ripe fruit that was in the aroma. The alcohol is well hidden which is a real bonus. Really good beer.

Draft at HopCat. The 223rd rating of this bad boy. Hazy pale yellow color, large bubble head. Aroma of lemon rind, straw, subtle acetone. Taste is malty but not overly sweet. True to the style.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12oz bottle from The Beer Depot in Ann Arbor, MI. Pours a cloudy, golden-orange colored body with a thin, frothy, white head that dissipates quickly and leaves a moderate lacing throughout. Aroma is somewhat fruity with white grapes, orange peels, and apricots along with some esters. Clove, a touch of bubble gum, and bready yeast. Flavor is pretty yeasty and estery up front with a good amount of yeast spice. More white grapes and slightly tart orange peel along with a good amount of clove comes in during the middle. A light wheat and some more bready yeast towards the end before this finishes dry, estery, yeasty spicy, and somewhat alcoholic before leaving a lengthy aftertaste. Medium-light body with a fairly lively carbonation. Overall, a decent trippel. Fairly spicy and estery while being sweet and dry. Not bad.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Nice super hazy golden coloured body with a bright orange glow and a thin, fast-dying off-white head. Aroma of intense alcohol, coriander seed, yeast, wheat, apricots and sugars. Full-bodied; Deep carbonated taste at first with yeast, wheat and a good fruity flavour noticeable. Aftertaste shows a good complexity with alcohol, yeast, light spices and some dry hay also. Overall, a very nice trip showing a ton of good flavours, a lot of alcohol and some good sweet fruity notes. I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased from Merchantís in Dearborn, Michigan on 16-January-2011 for US$2.89 sampled at home in Washington on 15-October-2011 the day the Tigers were unfortunately eliminated from the MLB Playoffs in 2011.
