4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Mmm yummy...this brew has that special belgian yeast banana, lemon, honey aroma. Hints of alcohol. Pours a golden orange with a monster head that leaves a lace trail. Spicey on the tongue with a banana bread body that is accented by some estery fruits, peppery alcohol and a lemon-honey finish. Fizzy and medium in the mouth with a good balance. You can feel the 10% ABV warming soon after the first few sips. A very nice enjoyable tripel.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottled. Sparkling dark golden, with a huge, creamy, off-white head. Aroma is banana, citrus, cloves, malts, yeast and some alcohol. A long, mild bitterness along with alcohol follows the flavor of banana, yeast, alcohol, spicyness, sweetness and some acidity. One of my favorites on Vinmonopolet, the Norwegian government-run stores that is the only legal outlets for beverages containing more than 4.75% ABV. (060105)

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Big rocky off white head leaving nice lace sits on a slightly hazy golden pour. Sour yeasty aroma with alcohol in evidence. Light malt flavor accompanies the medium body. Light fruit esters of bananna and pineapple, although a yesty sourness and ?wheat malt dominate. All the malt and yeast is balanced by citrus hop flavors, followed by a sweet malty finish. Smooth, refreshing, and easily drinkable.

I’ll take some of this any day. Smooth easy going beer. Slightly malty and a bit sweet/ sugary. colour was pale looked almost thin, can’t detect the alcohol at all.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle at Ciro’s. Light yellow, decent white head. Lots of yeast and alcohol in mild but pleasing aroma. Thin to medium mouthfeel. Nice simple accessible but flavourful taste: lots of yeast, light malt, and just a hint of the alcohol strength. Some floral like notes as well. Simple and quaffable with no major flaws or characteristics that would make it stand out against others in this category.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Yellow-orange body with abundant carbonation and a thick, frothy lasting white head. Aroma of yeasty bread, leather, faint clove, roses, and sweet bananas. Doughy malt flavor with warm alcohol and notes of vanilla, pepper, and leather. Semi-sweet with some stale, woody, drying hop bitterness. Smooth, ample body. A good tripel.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours clear deep gold with 2-finger off-white head and nice lacing. The aroma is flowery hopcitric, with some slight funky notes and peppery notes. The flavor is bold, with solid peaty flowery hops and citrus plus some fruity melon and funky notes. This one is very good.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
11.2 oz capped bottle, fairly fresh: pours a slightly cloudy rose-gold with a thick marshmallow-like, white head. Sourdough and peppery clove effervescence laced with alcohol and pale malts in the aroma. Gritty and slightly fizzy palate with sweet honeydew melon and banana flavours. Very drinkable with the alcohol mostly hidden behind the doughy and pale malts. Cheers to my new co-worked, Dustin for this treat.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours clear oranger, with a nice thick head. Sweet fruity aroma. I smell apple, yeast, malt. Typical strong Tripel aroma. Well carbonated but not fizzy. Alcohol is hidden well in the start, but comes out in the finish. Flavor is sweet, light, and slightly spicy. A decent tripel considering the price.
