This is the ultimate Belgian style. The very high gravity of this beer is balanced by the smoothness of its finish. Banana and Clove aromas come from the Belgian yeast strain combining with the generous dose of Belgian Candi Sugar. The Saaz hops help to give this beer a balanced bitterness with no noticeable hop aroma.

From fishmich in a trade-thanks, Bill! Big banana and clove nose. Clear gold, but a lot of sediment. Smooth, solid trippel. Good with some sushi on a Friday night.

First bottle of Dragonmead I had the privilege to have. Pours a beautiful cloudy amber nice aroma , caramel, barnyard, banana. Left to warm a bit (as it should be) a greatly complex palate. Honey, barnyard, herbs, and banana. A awesome beer I will be enjoying a lot of this summer.

Served on-tap at Green Dot Stables in Detroit, Michigan. Appearance: It looks like apple juice, to be honest. It looks REALLY poor... I got it with no head, and there was no lacing. Despite this, I still got a nice bit of carbonation while drinking it. Smell: Like a faint grape juice... thatís about it. Not bad but also not great, either. Taste: Like the smell... but the taste of the smell is much better than the smell itself. Know what I mean? Itís just a pretty heavy beer. Almost a syrupy texture with carbonation, and a smash to the face of really grape like flavors. Very fruity, but super enjoyable and WAY too drinkable. Mouthfeel: As I said, nice carbonation. It drinks like a wine cooler, sad to say... itís just a great experience. Overall, this is a fantastic beer. A very fruity beer, but still a great one that Iíd gladly have again. Though its looks are very unremarkable, what matters the most is the taste, and this tastes VERY good, in my opinion. Just beware of the ABV ... I didnít realize it was so high. Oops.

Pours clouudy with a very fine, thin head. Aroma is an interesting blend of heady fruits and caramel. The malts blend nicely, and bring a nice balance to the beer, but the gravity may be just a bit too high and can be overbearing. All in all, this is an excellent attempt at a classic Belgian Trippel with American style from a local brewer. - Bottled

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. Shouldíve 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 Jacobyís. Banana clove flavors shine through and thereís a smooth, malty aspect that adds to the overall subdued character of it, despite the high abv, which is unnoticeable. The brewerís 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, itís 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. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
