3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Typical Triple color and head. Aroma is mostly sweet malt. The flavor starts out sweet and perhaps a bit grainy. Lacks the spice that I love in a good triple. A little thin. Not bad but nohting to write home about.

Good Belgian Tripel! Yeast bread like aroma. Yellow color, fairly clear. Bead of pearl head around the rim of the glass. Fairly sweet. Soft mouthfeel, dry finish.

One of the first Belgian Style beers that I've tried. It was pretty good, though definitely an acquired taste. A little sweet and a little alcoholly in the after-taste.

some fruit aroma, but also phenolic aromas that were not enjoyable. flavor was crisp but too complex - sweet, bannana, sugar, hoppy - not well balanced.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Light golden in colour, with slight hazyness. Good smell, with hints of malt and hops. Nice medium bodied beer, but the flavours arent extreme and complex. The aftertaste is normal and smooth, but not too flavourful either. A good beer to try once. Tasted on Tap at MacGregor's in Rochester, New York.

My first beer of this style, nice golden color, hints of banana flavor, decent hoppiness. It definitely has a kick as I can definitely taste the alcohol in this beer. I have tried no other beers of this style to compare this to...but overall an interesting and different beer.

UPDATED: AUG 27, 2006 Hazy golden beer with a small lacy white head. Sort of a sweet Piraat 10.5; sensation of alcohol, malt, sugar. Sort of a low alcohol Belgian tripel with some residual sugar. Nice. // Rerated August 2006. Crystal clear with a huge head that vanishes, leaving not a hint of lace. Yeasty, like a true tripel, not as sweet as I remembered it, with a slightly metalic finish. I down graded both the flavor and the overall impression.

Hazy golden body, small white head, tripel nose. Mild fruity flavor with a distinct yeasty note. Some alcohol presence. Nice example of the style.

Nice pale orange/yellow with a nice fluffy head which stays for a shile. Very well carbonated but not too spritzy. Aroma is of a classic belgian strong ale with lots of bread like aroma's. Taste is malty with some european hops. Very similar to golden monkey, yet there are some subtle differences.

Clear until the yeast pour, deep golden color with thin head and lace. Yeasty aroma with sweet malt, bit of banana, candied sugars, alcohol and others. Medium bodied,creamy carbonation, very lush with bananas, sweet candy, yeast and zippy alcohol in a very tight and balanced package. Has an incredible vinous quality that mingles with the candied sugar and yeast wonderfully. Awesome triple.
