Being from England I have good access to a lot of Belgian trappist beers and I have to say this is pretty good still. Pours a cloudy yellow with a white head. Tastes of banana and a hint of alcohol, Very nice.

On tap at Murray’s in Manly, April 2013. Hazy gold with a slight white head. Light coriander notes, some spice, citrus fruits, grainy malts and a hint of bubble gum, before a gentle finish. Good.

Appearance - Poor head retention, high carbonation, poor clarity, medium amber colour
Smell - Fruity, banana, cloves, citrus fruit, candied orange, light alcohol presence
Taste - Citrus fruits, lemon, orange & grapefruit flavour. Slight spicy hop profile. Tangy finish
Mouthfeel - Light body, good carbonation, slightly bitter finish, lingering warmth due to moderate alcohol presence
Drinkability - Summer sipper, pleasant well balanced
Overall - Good beer, drinkable, lacks complexity of Belgians. Good on a summers day

Tap at the brew house. Pours a dark red with a small off white head. Nose is like a warhead so sour. Taste is horribly unbalanced too much sourness over powering everything else. Didn't enjoy this one

Very average beer. Taste is far too unbalanced; just isn’t that easy to drink.

This triple doesn’t taste as heavy as others but still has great full flavors. A good triple for the summer at the waters

Had on tap and in the bottle. Pours a lovely golden amber colour with a thick white head. Hint of banana on the nose. Lovely biscuit malty flavour with a subdued hop bitterness on the finish. You can't taste the alcohol, even though it's about 8% alc. could be very deadly if you have a few.

Drank from brewery tap, It poured slightly hazy and had minimal foam that turned to nothing moments later. The aroma profile is pleasant and sports candi sugar, phenols, some hops, malts and some higher alcohols. The beer is resonably well balanced and has a lovely flavour profile, some residual sweetness is there as well as some bubblegum and the alcohol warms the palate on the way through.
