Far too sweet in both aroma & taste, though very accessible, particularly for a trippel. Certainly the standard honey, banana, clove, allspice aromas, and rock candy all overall the taste. Grandiose mouthfeel; makes you feel regal! In sum, not at all a bad beer, but contrary to popular opinion, I felt Dragonmead brews some other styles a bit better.

Fantome glass, cellar temp. Should’ve known about the yeast at the bottom..oops poured it all in. Now a bright orange murky appearance no head. Times of raw bread, some peaches and oak. Taste is very much to style...dark fruit, bread, citrus, peaches, figs, some honey and melon. Low carbonation, metallic penny like finish.

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

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.

UPDATED: SEP 8, 2012 Impressed. Not as good as some belgians but I haven’t run across an american tripel that can touch them until this one.
