Bottle. Pours hazy gold with a weak, white head. Plenty of phenols and clove in the aroma. Flavor is sweet with some light syrup, tart fruit and Belgian sugar. Medium in body with fizzy carbonation and mild warmth. Finishes lightly dry and very sweet. An interesting take on the style. mcberko (17809) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 2, 2010

Cloudy beigey amber colour. Nice loose head. Candyish with sugar and bland plasticy pale malt. Decent finish because the alcohol cuts through the cloying a bit.
A: Pours a slightly hazed golden orange color with a nice white head and some spots of lacing.
S: I can smell the banana before I even pour the beer in the glass. Big time banana bread aroma and maybe even some banana candy. A touch of spice and maybe a bit of alcohol. Not bad...
T: Quite sweet with a definite banana bread flavor to it. A little bit of a bubblegum thing going on also. The alcohol is not there in flavor, but it does provide some perceptible warming notes. A bit of candi sugar and some light fruits, particularly white grapes and pears.
M: The body is medium with a carbonation that is on the light end of medium.
D: A big improvement from their brown ale. I prefer my tripels on the dry side, but this was not bad at all. bhensonb (15188) - Woodland, California, USA - JUN 29, 2007
Bottle/8% on label. Spicy aroma of clove, citrus and, say, banana. Coppery amber color with a decent white head that didn’t stay tall. Medium bodied. Bit of carbonation bite. Almost creamy. Starts with strong candy, caramel sweetness, offset by spice, followed by a bit of alcohol warmth, and light pepper and a small hop bitter in the finish. Not really pulling out the flavors suggested in the aroma. Seems to be a hint of phenol. Good. Especially at the price! Ratman197 (14826) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - MAY 27, 2008
Bottle poured a clear gold with a lasting off white head. Aromas of fruittiness, spice and light carmel. Palate was medium bodied and crisp with a smooth finish. Flavors of carmel, spice, apples, pears and a hint of honey with a smooth lingering spicy sweet finish. argo0 (14127) - Washington DC, USA - JUL 26, 2004
(bottle) Cloudy golden body with small off-white head. Aroma is moderately sweet, honey, pear. Taste is quite sweet, honey, pear. Alcohol evident but not overwhelming. Full body, no dryness. This is as close to a mead as any beer I’ve had -- no relationship to normal tripel. I still like it though. 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.
