Pours a somewhat cloudy and grainy golden color, with an initially foamy rocky head, that quickly fades into a small fizzy ring. Quite lemony and yeasty. Slightly bittersweet and acidic. Biscuity and chalky, I find that alot of this brewrys beers have an amazing similiarity in flavor profile. TheBeerNinja (137) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - MAR 10, 2006
Pours a golden clear amber with a quick fizzle of white head. Nose is fruity and aromatic with spicey hints of yeast and subtle hops. Flavor is relativly straight foward tripel. Crisp and sweet with a bold bitter body and a clean fizzy finish. Can’t wait to try more from this brewery. bu11zeye (13029) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - JAN 5, 2006
(Bottle) Pours a cloudy golden body with a moderate white head and fair lacing. Aroma of wheat, cloves, banana, pear, and syrup from canned fruit. Flavor of honey, wheat, and earthiness with a dry, bitter, chaulky mouthfeel. footbalm (1219) - Western Minneapolis Suburbs, Minnesota, USA - DEC 18, 2005
12oz bottle courtesy of Liquidsolutions.biz. Pours a copper color with nary a sign of any carbonation. Has a very nice nose with tons of exotic spices like coriander and maybe even nutmeg. I want to say that this has over ripe bananas that lend a fruit compote aroma to it. Zero bitterness and lots of the fruit.I like this but it isn’t a great tripel but it is good.

UPDATED: SEP 26, 2005 Pours a brilliantly clear full copper color, but pours without any head, though perhaps there is a small ring of pale bubbles that is generated by a perfectly capable level of carbonation. The aroma is lightly sweet with a backdrop of astringent herbal notes. There are also aromatics notes of vanilla, clove, and other lightly spicy notes. The beer itself tastes lightly sweet yet it finishes with a dry herbal note that makes me want to take another sip. There is also a lingering earthy spice note that reminds me of coriander, could also be the Chimay strain of yeast, but I am not too sure. This beer has quite a bit of spiciness to it, but it is muted a bit by the sweetness that is perhaps a little too much. For some reason this beer just seems to clash a bit, it just does not quite do it for me, the individual flavors are good, but as a whole it just does not jive; it is decent but definitely not great.

Lightly hazed golden hue, moderate head formation. Yeasty aroma with peach and honey prevalent. Sweet fruitiness on the palate, canned peaches, oranges and pears, a touch of candy sugar. Spiciness and alcohol warmth provide some balance. On the sweeter side with noticeable alcohol which makes it surprising for me to say "pretty tastey." mjg74 (3141) - La Mesa, California, USA - AUG 9, 2005
Bottled. Pours an almost apple juice looking color. Aroma is mostly of yeast and is a little fruity. Sweet fruity flavor. Some smokiness as well. Alcohol is a little strong in the finish. A little bit of spice as well. HumuloneRed (751) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUL 23, 2005
[PIBF’04] Draught. Murky golden yellow with good head and lacing. Spice and yeast in the nose. Spicy and yeasty flavors with notes of citrus. Creamy texture and finish. Good beer. mreeves (276) - Sammamish, Washington, USA - JUL 12, 2005
Golden, cloudy appearance, with relative little carbonation compared to what one might expect for the style. Alcohol is very evident, and taste is generally very sweet. A decent Belgian tripel, but seems like the alcohol content was deliberately goosed up to me. GMP (16) - USA - JUL 5, 2005
Not as smooth as the "true" belgian trippels I have tried, but a decent approximation at a nice price.
