COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This is the ultimate Belgian style. The very high gravity of this beer is balanced by the smoothness of its finish. Banana and Clove aromas come from the Belgian yeast strain combining with the generous dose of Belgian Candi Sugar. The Saaz hops help to give this beer a balanced bitterness with no noticeable hop aroma.

No head, not much in the way of aromas, but banana, clove, bubblegum, and citrusy flavors, very pleasing. Really enjoyed this one

On tap at Ashley’s Ann Arbor. Hazy golden with white foam that leaves rings. Aroma is banana, bubblegum, yeast, pepper, and clove. Taste is slightly sweet, strongly yeasty, gently bitter. Medium body, active carbonation, dry finish.

Excellent beer. A Top 10 beer. One of the better Belgian Trippels out there.

superspak (6216) - Waterford, Michigan, USA - OCT 11, 2013
12 ounce bottle into chalice, bottled on 8/16/2013. Pours lightly cloudy golden orange color with a small foamy white head with decent retention, that reduces to a spotty lace cap that lingers. Minimal lacing clings on the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of big pear, apple, grape, banana, clove, pepper, honey, candi sugar, bread, herbal, floral, and yeast earthiness. Fantastic aromas with great balance and complexity of malt and fruity/spicy esters; with great strength. Taste of big lemon, pear, apple, grape, banana, clove, pepper, bread, honey, candi sugar, herbal, floral, and yeast earthiness. Lingering notes of light fruits, banana, clove, pepper, bread, honey, candi sugar, herbal, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Damn nice balance and complexity of malt and fruity/spicy yeast flavors; with a great malt/spiciness balance and no cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and medium-full bodied; with a moderately crisp and slightly slick mouthfeel that is great. Alcohol is very well hidden with only a slight warming present after the finish. Overall this is a great tripel! All around great complexity and balance of flavors; and very smooth to sip on for the big ABV. A very enjoyable offering.

The Lost Notebook Files Beer #24. I did it. I cleared my entire backlog. Feels damn fine. Need to drink some beer. Pours pale amber with average head. Booze and caramel on the nose. Lively mouthfeel. Sweet yet not overpowering flavor. Bottle - Siciliano’s Specialty Market - Grand Rapids, MI

mattyhennessy (377) - Highton, AUSTRALIA - JUL 22, 2013
Very sweet and earthy. The Belgian yeast flavour is very defined. A strong smoky flavour, however surprisingly smooth to drink for the abv. Very poor head retention however, which is perhaps the only let down for this beer and is surprising due to the high carbonation. The strong yeast flavour combines perfectly with the sweetness of the citrus. One of my favourites. Best enjoyed from a snifter.

UPDATED: DEC 18, 2014 Tap @ Dragonmead: Hazy golden-amber with a volatile, white head. Sweet, earthy and fruity ester filled aroma with lots of Belgian yeast; spicy clove, banana, bubblegum, bread. Taste is more of the same with heavy spiciness from the yeast. Hops are light but floral and almost perfume-like. Heavy, heavy Belgian yeast all around. Bubblegum and clove, all day. Soft body with heavy carbonation, almost effervescent.
