given to me by sprinkle with this quote(or something similar)" i can’t do it man, i can’t drink another damn drop, this is yours if you want it". so yeah i wanted it. if you know me a bit you know i have a stopping problem. you should see my notes, damn it is funny. well, here is what i thought of this beer. nice dark shimmering pour with a white head. wet penny and wheat aroma. wet wheat flavor too with some corny grain flavor. brown sugar cedar finish. alcohol does a pirouet here(someone tell me what this means? does it dace gracefully or do a comple turn and go the other way?)too much so. peach aroma with cinnamon and brown sugar cookie jcwattsrugger (12517) - Florida and, New Jersey, USA - SEP 1, 2008
on tap-pours a white head and cloudy gold color. Aroma is medium fruit-apple, rock candy, medium malt. Taste is clove/medium fruit-apple, rock candy, medium malt, spices. Alcohol with a formaldehyde finish being the only detractor.

Tap at Barcade - fizzy, hazy gold - lots of things about this beer tasted off - there was a spicy kick and phenolic character that seemed intentional, but aside from that, it was overly sweet, and had this odd, almost chlorine-like flavor to it - slight tartness and acidic apple qualities - pretty darn bad. chibuck (3513) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 29, 2011
On tap at the brewpub into a tulip. The biggest review beer with a good review, I gave this one a try first. Let down...Pours an ugly dark gold, muddied. A light off white head that only rises a weak finger, but sticks for awhile...A dead and boring aroma, light floral yeast and banana...The taste is strong belgian yeast, way way to much. Light floral notes, alcohol really comes through on the finish.
This was the least impressive of the beers we drank. I would not recommend this beer.

Tap at Barcade. Very, very estery aroma, tons of bubble gum, sweet banana, phenols. Flavor is cloyingly sweet in the finish, with some spice and cinnamon and yeast accents up front. Hardly Belgian tasting at all, so overwhelmingly sweet, near undrinkable. Probably the worst Tripel I’ve ever had. Rciesla (5499) - Exit 15W, New Jersey, USA - FEB 7, 2009
Draft pours a golden body with a thin lacing. Loads of alcohol latent fruity esters, gum, bananas, citrus, and apple skins. Drastically sweet malt body with a transient lemon tartness for balance. Wow overbearingly sweet. I tried to pawn this off but was to late.
My notes say 2.8- i think this might even be generous. BlackDonald (1126) - Gulf Shores, Alabama, USA - AUG 9, 2009
After hearing all the bragging about this beer I was disappointed to get to the brewery and they only had two beers on and another guest tap. Than I get my chalice of bubbly golden liquid and it’s fucking flat. So I could not really experience the hype. Sweet simple candy sugar notes and a bready biscuity note throughout. Not really alot going on with this one. koleminer20 (3840) - Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA - FEB 7, 2017
On draft at HopCat a Indianapolis. Thanks work! Oh boy. The pour is a darker foggy golden orange with a thick ring of white head and some good lacing as it falls. The aroma is everything I dislike about tripels. There is a heavy banana and clove with a spiciness and a light pear-like fruitiness. It’s all banana and clove though. The flavor is much of the same. The fruitiness fades in lieu of a sweet clove and a strong banana. Not my thing at all. This is rough. The mouth feel is thick and softly carbonated with a lingeringly banana dominated aftertaste. No thanks. lilannie (384) - Adamstown, Maryland, USA - OCT 16, 2005
