750 bought at Binny’s (was Sam’s) Chicago. Well carbonated. Banana in the nose. Sweet, candy taste. A lot of sugar there. But overall, light and refreshing. jake65 (3707) - Meridian, Idaho, USA - JUL 27, 2010
2009 Bottle (#43/3000) thanks Toby! Pours a clear golden color with a minimal sandy head. Nose is fruity, yeast, cloves, and a little dry wheatiness. Tastes sweet and malty with some underlying fruity tones. Light yeast presence and has a sweet (somewhat cloying) feel. Warm finish. Fruitiness mellows with warmth and ends up being remarkably drinkable for 10%.

750 ml bottle, number 10/3000! Listed as Bukin Monk. Pours a clear yellow color with a medium white foamy head. The aroma is sweet bananas, butterscotch. The flavor is more banana esters, buttery flavors, yeasty, fruity. A decent triple. caralkaline87 (435) - Washington DC, USA - MAY 22, 2010
Pours light amber with a moderately large off-white head. Nose and flavor are both very fruity- apple and cherry comes out the most, oddly enough- and somewhat spiced as well. Hops are subdued for an Abbey Tripel. The beer comes across a bit oiley as well. Decent but sub-par for what I expect from this style. BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - MAY 22, 2010
Bottle: pours a hazy yellow gold with a nice head. Spicy esters in the nose with some yeast and malty notes. The flavor is balanced, a light zip of citrus but otherwise fairly mellow. Clean yeasty finish. BuckeyeBoy (7748) - Boise, Idaho, USA - MAY 2, 2010
