Aroma if banana nuts and Belgian yeast. Some sweet. Flavor follows the aroma. Pretty nice beer actually. Light carbonation but overall a very enjoyable Belgian.

Had on tap at the Albany Pump Station on 12/22/12. It pours a fairly typical cloud orange, exactly what I’d expect given the style. There is a fleeting white head that didn’t last particularly long. This strong ale has an interesting aroma, one that reminded me of sassafras and spice; I actually enjoyed it. The taste is pretty typical of the style, spicy with yeasty esters. Unfortunately, it falls fairly flat. It’s not offensive, but it’s somewhat uninteresting. j12601 (12000) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - AUG 8, 2012
Pouring at BCTC. Pours a clear gold with a thin white head. Fuzzy musk, sweet caramel. Medium bodied, candy, sweet malt. Sweet candy malt, esters, malt, more sweet candy notes leading into a yeast heavy finish. blipp (9295) - La Mesa, California, USA - JUL 26, 2012
Draft. Pours hazy gold with a white head. Spicy yeast, banana-sweet fruity notes, a hint of berry, and anise-like spicy notes. Not bad. Jow (3926) - New York, USA - OCT 25, 2010

Very pale straw colour. The nose is chock-full of dirty phenolics. There’s a bit of clove, but mostly, there is a sort of cooked vegetable DMS flavour. White sugar sweetness before finishing with a lingering honeyish character. Fruity and rancid. Ack. These guys need to sort out their yeast issues.

Draft at the brewpub. Marketed as a triple, its like the pale only more yeasty. Some brown sugar. Above average mouthfeel. Yellow with lace. Boozy, pepper,c orriander, ginger. jgb9348 (6268) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - JAN 17, 2009
Clear gold coloured body with a light head that tops the beer nicely. Aroma of malt, lemons and alcohol. Full-bodied; Strong sweetness, the honey and sugars dominate this one completely. Aftertaste is very strong and alcoholic, but shows quality throughout. I sampled this on draught at the Albany Pump Station in Albany, New York on 25 June 2006.

Pours copper with a white head. Smells spicy and sweet with lots of dark fruiity hints. Tastes sweet and spicy with a peppery finish. linc33 (184) - Albany, New York, USA - JUL 13, 2007
On tap at the Pump Station, 13 July 07. Definitely a Tripel-style, served in proper glassware. Not bad, you don’t often see Tripels on tap in this area, brewed locally or not. Would drink it again.
