intresting... like the name. A fairly average belgian ale (which means it’s in the top quarter of all beers).

I found this beer somewhat mediocre. Hints of banana were pretty interesting though but the smell was slightly industrial.

Banana esters, yeast, and a lot of alcohol in the nose. Orangish-brown color with a large white head. Malty, slightly carmelized flavor with some bananas. Some alcohol flavor although a lot less than the aroma would imply. Medium body with a little creaminess. Quite tasty.

Funny glasses. The tastes like the other triple Belgian Strong Ales with a hint of yeast.

UPDATED: AUG 13, 2005 750 ml corked: Not bottle conditioned. Crystal clear Alt-like color with a dazzling white, creamy foam. The aroma is unlike any other Belgian: Smoke, fig, clove, and white grape. Underlying English hops there as well. Alcohol is hardly evident in this 8% ale. At first contact, the full body provides an intricate sweetness. Doppelbock-Barleywinelike. Silky, soft carbonation. Apricot, caramel, honey, white grape, and soft spice cake are followed by a Triple like fruitiness and bock-like malt profile. Subtle flavor of pine, yet intense sensation of whole mint leaf at room temperature. Amazing. Very fruity and balanced. In fact, one of the fruitiest, malty beers I can remember. Hop flavor is only evident at the back of the throat. This feel/texture counters the malt sweetness splendidly. This is a most unique ale and of the utmost quality. This defies class, as it exhibits traits of a Germanic Alt and Doppelbock, Spicy, fruity Triple, and the slick, soft mouthfeel of an Old Ale. Without a doubt a beer to be sought by any beer aficianado.

UPDATED: JUN 4, 2006 Amber coloured, great head. Quite sweet, notes of caramel and nuts, alcohol is certainly detectable. Nice beer, but somehow i always like the bottled version more than when served on draft. Few extra points overall for the beautiful glass.

Bright copper in colour. Super head which was frothy yet had much texture (although didn’t last). If you let this beer linger slightly in your mouth you will pick up a most wonderful toffee flavour. Quite hoppy for a beer of this nature as well. Kind of reminded me of Hoegaarden Forbidden Fruit only better all round. Very impressed.
