Pours a golden color with a white head. Aroma is green apple, yeasty, clove, honey, vanilla, and some spicy hops. Flavor is apple, vanilla, honey, yeasty, and a bitter spicy finish.

DukeBrewDevil (732) - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA - JAN 20, 2009
Draft at Laughing Seed. Just a bit of cloudiness in a golden brew with a thin, long lasting white head. Flowery, doughy nose. Nice spicy flavor with some sour yeast and a tart finish. I certainly had no idea it was 8.8% alcohol when I was drinking it as it goes down smoother than many beers of this strength.

drfabulous (4132) - Lexington, Kentucky, USA - DEC 27, 2008
Draft at Laughing Seed. Light body. Nice overall tripel style taste. Not amazing, but an ok Belgian interpretation. Needs a bit more candy sugar.

Butters (3811) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - OCT 30, 2008
Draft pours a clear straw, with almost no head. Great Banana aroma and the same wierd hop profile as their other beers. Clove, sweet pepper, belgian yeast, and banana flavors. A bit astringent on the finish, and somewhat ’hot’. Not a bad offering.

unclemattie (4248) - Georgia, USA - AUG 24, 2008
Golden pale, no head. Served in a stemmed glass. Big ABV, the bartender warned me. Bring it, I’m excited. Huge aroma of cloves. Hints of white plum. lots of banana flavor, some clove, straw, and a touch of tartness. Duvel clone maybe even a scaldis. Very good. I’m craving a big bowl of mussels to go with it. Finishes with a touch of bubblegum. a very impressive yeast character. Finishes dry.

BlackDonald (1126) - Boise, Idaho, USA - JAN 29, 2008
This was was very eh. A very typical American take on a Belgian. A very pretty straw color with a small light head. Cookie dough nose, with some fresh hay, clove and banana. Slightly sour, with a bit of a bubblegum flavor, finishes slightly dry and chalky.

   AROMA 7/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 7/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 15/20
tronraner (2459) - Walland, Tennessee, USA - NOV 9, 2007
Draught at the brewpub. Pours brilliant gold with tight but small white head. The aroma is mellow banana, some cookie, light sugar, and some straw. The flavor is slightly tart with some yeasty banana and clove notes. The finish gets a bit grainy. The aftertaste is dry, but subdued by some lingering sweetness. Alcohol comes out as it warms. Not too bad.

NachlamSie (2796) - Denver, Colorado, USA - NOV 9, 2007
draught. Pours. . gold! The aroma has hints of banana, hay, wood, maybe a tiny bit of sourness. The flavor is much sweeter than the aroma would lead me to believe, though its certainly not cloying. I get residual funk in the finish with a sweet, fruity bouquet up front. Carbontation is minimal. Honey flavors seem to wash over any sour/acidic notes that perk their head up. Pretty decent brew, certainly enjoyable.

Jmichael (640) - Asheville, North Carolina, USA - OCT 11, 2007
close to a Duvel, which is what the brewer was trying for, pours a semi cloudy gold with high fluffy head, sweet cramy mouthfeel, fluffy sweet finish. tis good.
