Draft at Beervana. Hazy pale yellow color, small white head. Aroma of mild citrus that was a bit overwhelmed by the barbecuing meat at the stall next door. Taste is sweet and sticky orange.

Being from England I have good access to a lot of Belgian trappist beers and I have to say this is pretty good still. Pours a cloudy yellow with a white head. Tastes of banana and a hint of alcohol, Very nice.

2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Tap at the brew house. Pours a dark red with a small off white head. Nose is like a warhead so sour. Taste is horribly unbalanced too much sourness over powering everything else. Didn't enjoy this one

Very average beer. Taste is far too unbalanced; just isn’t that easy to drink.

This triple doesn’t taste as heavy as others but still has great full flavors. A good triple for the summer at the waters

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Had on tap and in the bottle. Pours a lovely golden amber colour with a thick white head. Hint of banana on the nose. Lovely biscuit malty flavour with a subdued hop bitterness on the finish. You can't taste the alcohol, even though it's about 8% alc. could be very deadly if you have a few.
