Nice foamy head. Weird stuff. Noy as yeasty as I suspected. Has a bannana flavor to it. Has a strange finish. Something is out of balance. Give me a real belgium beer. Love this brewery hate this beer. Maybe I don't like because I hate bannanas. Any how this is WAY overated.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Floral, malty aroma, with some phenols and some alcohol. Pours cloudy and golden, with a small but dense head. Flavor is sweet, balanced phenol, and alcohol, with a fizzy, slightly hoppy background. Great tail lingers with a good balance. Really fine example of the Belgian Tripel style!

Smooth and light for a powerful beer; enjoy with variety of foods and appetizers; not too sweet; a good competitor with the real belgian blondes
