My last beer of the 2K3 blizzard. Small head, golden copper color, banana aroma and (yeast) flavor. Nice beer to have after shovelling 20" of snow for an hour and a half.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Lightly sugary, sweet, floral aroma, with some melon fruitiness. Medium orange in color with a nicely lasting, billowing, creamy head and intricate sheets of lacing. Flavor has some candi and light brown sugar sweetness, banana, lemon, berry, a slight amount of clove and spiciness, bready and caramel malt and ever-so-faint alcohol. Finish is malty, yeasty and lightly sticky. Medium to full bodied, palate is smooth and a bit thinner than I would have guessed. Pleasant.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Banana overkill in aroma and flavor. A little spice sneeks in, but not enough to provide complexity. My least favorite of this brewer's line.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Wood and leather all the way through with a little bitterness. Aroma is leathery, flavor is wood. Nicely done tripel, not typical. Reminiscient of one of Artevelde's. My bottle was covered with dust when I bought it. Very woody. Sort of an average abbey ale.

Bottle. Hazy golden color with a quickly laced white head. The nose is deeply malty with cherries and quite rich for a tripel. Dry, citric, and spicy in the mouth. The alcohol is a little harsh.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
This beer poured a reddish amber and formed a bubbly off white head that left circular lace as it subsided. A good amount of carbonation is present. An aroma of malt, herb and bread. A flavor of malt and citrus with a warming slight presence of the alcohol. A slight tart finish on a light body brought on in part, no doubt, to the heavy carbonation. Not a bad tripel.
