Hazy, medium golden in color with a small white head. Spicy and fruity aromas. Sweet, spicy and fruity tastes. Taste struck me as run of the mill and nothing too special. Fizzy body.

1.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 7/20
Nice head. Initially like a yesty Unibroue, but then Sour and acidic. Not finishable. Too dry, too carbonated. cloves are shocking to palate. Lemongrass does only sour it further. Medicinal.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 ounce bottle at Capital Ale House Downtown. Pours a hazy golden orange color with a large head. Average head retention and lacing. Aroma of yeast, banana, citrus and tropical fruits. Taste is bready and yeasty with huge citrus and tropical fruit notes. Light peppery spice also. Full bodied. Nice beer.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
12 oz bottle. Pale golden colour with a thin white head. Aroma is very yeasty and peppery, ripe banana. Lightly phenolic. Spices, especially clove/allspice, some bubble gum. Flavour is very fruity and phenolic, banana, overripe fruit. Sweet Belgian pale malt. Comes across too heavy and sweet. Carbonation could be dialled up a bit too, to make the body feel lighter. Fairly greasy/heavy mouthfeel and a bit of a chemically finish. Not a great example at all.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
355mL courtesy of tastybeer. Pours a cloudy, deepish yellow with a billowing, bright white, forced carbonation head that settles quickly with no retention or lace. Aroma of cloves, overripe bananas, pineapples, phenols. Taste is sweet, boozy, grainy, sugary, cloying with spicy alcohol. Bubbly, prickly, high carbonation palate. 9.3% is very apparent.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sampled at From The Vine beer tasting Oct 19th, 2007: Cloudy yellow-orange color with a medium fizzy white head that burns off steadily. Quick patches of lacing. The aroma is bread, yeast and sweet fruit. Medium-bodied with flavors of yeast, fruit (banana) and earthy malt. The finish is spicy with banana and pear aftertaste. Overall this is a pretty good beer, although it is definitely on a lower rung than the world class Tripels out there.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: DEC 19, 2012 12oz bottle tasted along side Prophecy at Zeno’s in State College, PA. Clear amber yellow color. Has the proper nose of a tripel, with sweet sugars and spicy, estery yeast notes. Crisp, fresh tasting, properly bitter and mildly dry. Very fizzy, full of the Weyerbacher yeast, which I really don’t care for, but otherwise and OK beer. Not one of the best.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Slightly hazy amber-orange; good off-white head. Banana, bubblegum esters abundant in the nose, more than in most German Weizens! Soft sweet taste with sourish background, again completely ester, AND diacetyl. Fruity, seems not completely fermented. If this is supposed to be a triple - for chrissakes, then it ought to have been fully attenuated! Finish yields rosewater. Rather full-bodied with restsugars, well carbonated. I’m underawed. Depending on what it was supposed to be, agreed, but it is underattenuated under any circumstance.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
A good triple. Belgian dubbels and triples are not my favorite styles, but I have to commend Weyerbacher on this brew. It's super malty, very alcoholic, and has overtones of citrus, yeast, sugar candy, and riesling. I found it to be too sweet and a little cloying, but I respect what they have accomplished with this one. I laid 6 down, and I will re-rate after a year or so.
