No better than it was many years ago...still too sweet and candy-ish...not really a tripel, just a strong Belgian golden. Not a very serious rendition. Murphy (1759) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - OCT 10, 2006
Cloudy light brown. Aroma is bubblegum, wheat, slighly dry. Taste is light ctirus, mild sweet malts, candi sugar. Finish brings a little hops. Great overall mild citrus presence. Well hidden alcohol. Easy drinking, well balanced. Very wheaty for a tripel, I like it. waolsen (1376) - Littleton, Colorado, USA - OCT 8, 2006

Pours to a hazy carmeld straw color w/ a large white head. Aroma of bananna bread, some sweet sugars and carmels. Palate was well coated and lightly creamy. Flavor of bananna, carmel, some doughy notes, light warmth of alcohol. Pretty darn good.

Unknown vintage. Bottle shared by someone at the GABF 2006 post-part on Saturday. The beer pours to a very murky straw colored body with a lasting white head. The aroma is sweet caramel malts, baked bananas, nice yeastiness. Very nicely blended. The flavor is sweetly malty, light vinousness with some white wine, nice caramel balance. Light banana. Really warming palate. Nice texture, rich feel. Indra (2710) - Suburbia, Kansas, USA - JUN 24, 2001
Very tasty interpretation of tripel style. Very full-bodied, filtered, and with a nice faintly alcoholic aftertaste. Good stuff.
