Draft at the HBF. I liked this one. Aroma of citrus, yeast, and big banana. Tastes triply, with a finish of citrus, more banana, cloves, and floral esters. Very nice style. Selin’s Grove came through with 2 great beers at the HBF.

Sampler at the Brewery. Ok tripel. Didn’t have enough clove or banana for me. Alcohol which was 8.5 was hidden rather well.

UPDATED: OCT 30, 2005 Damn impressive, this is! Little lasting head, but what there is is pure white with fine bubbles. Looks like Golden Monkey and smells like cloves, apples, bubblegum and BANANA. BANANA, baby, banana. I actually had to ask the server if they had used some sort of hefeweizen yeast, the esters were so strong. Absolutely delicious-smelling. Tastes like strong malt, a hint of spice, and bananas all the way through. Yeasty and doughy as well. Clean and strong finish with a touch of alcohol. I will be submitting updates to the description as soon as I can get them. This is like Golden Monkey’s little brother....truly a delectable beer.

Absolutely fabulous beer. Beautiful golden color with a bright white head that is long lasting. The aromas are powerful, with bananna, clove, and some bready yeatiness coming through. powerful flavors, with strong malt sweetness and even a bananna note on the finish. Alcohol is a bit noticeable, but it is very enjoyable.
