3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Super hazy golden coloured body with a thick, two centimetre tall off-white head. Aroma of yeast, coriander seed, bananas, a hint of curacao and a bit of corn. Full-bodied; Strong banana flavour with a lot of yeast and wheat with a bit of curacao on the finish. Aftertaste is strong as hell with alcohol very noticeable and an almost creamy banana flavour with a lot of wheat and a very sweet finish. Overall, not as complex as I’d have imagined, but the sweetness, yeast, bananas and yeast are definitely noticeable, along with the pungent alcohol. I sampled this 65 cL bottle purchased from Liqour Outlet in Boonton, New Jersey on 30-December-2012 for US$5.89 sampled at home in Washington on 26-January-2013.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
I don’t get it--alcohol is a depressant, right? So it should cause just the opposite of spine tingling--sort of a nerve suppressant effect. Oh well. My brother-in-law opened this for Christmas Eve dinner 2012. Fruity nose with a gentle yeast. Subdued flavors but in the general tripel vein of things. Moderate palate, not a tongue tingler. Average to slightly below average tripel. Bottle.

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bomber from BevMo. Hazy golden in color with a hint of orange. Slightly sweet yeasty nose with some grain and a hint of sour. Pretty sweet up front, giving way to more sweetness. Some yeast and a hint of bitter grain. Finish is somewhat sweet as well. Not a real good tripel.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Good sized bright white head of rather fine bubbles. Lemony citrus aroma with some cereal grains, wheat and sweet malts. Color is a hazy golden orange. Flavor is sweet malts, more cereal grains, some dry flowers and lemon grass. Bit of a zippy effervescence in the mouth. Mostly malt palate with some light dry hops presence. Finishes malty and a tad dry with a light lingering bitterness. A pretty good brew and a steal at $0.99 a bomber. Wish I would have gotten more!

3.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours light gold and clear with a thick white head. Aroma is cloves and banana with some "yeasty" bread. Taste is slightly lemony with some clove. The beer has an initial peppery bitter bite, but smooths out nicely and it’s all done Belgian style. Although not super complex, it is refreshing.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle...99¢ at Sam's Quik Shop in Durham! Cloudy golden straw color with foamy white head. Smells of hay, dough, lemons, bananas, and a spicy pepperiness. Seriously all same tastes hay and dough up front leading into strong banana and pepperiness in end. Light to medium mouthfeel with a "tingle" from the pepper. Not bad overall but a little too much going on at once in a style that I don't tend to love. But pretty great for 99¢ 22oz. bottle!
