COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Since the early 1600's, the Dutch have attempted to breed a pure black tulip. Many have tried and a few have come close...but none have succeeded. Call it the Holy Grail of the tulip world. In honor of this elusive flower we have brewed this special elixir. We have combined the finest Belgian malt, rare European hops, an authentic Belgian yeast and finally, the brew is dusted with tulip petals. The resulting blend is nothing less than magical.

Oh shut the front door! Truly one of the most enjoyable experiences I've had in the past few months with beer.

Very rich caramel start. Rounds out full of various flavors and very complete sensation over your whole tounge.

This is a very tasty Trippel. Nice and light with plenty of flavor. The subtle taste and aroma of the banana is delicious!

Pours sparkling medium yellow with tiny particles, rocky white head. Aroma is nice of cookies and bubblegum. Flavor is moderatly sweet and lightly bitter (bannanas) with an average finish and tasty, inline for style. Medium bodied, creamy, softly carbonated with a nice dry finish.

12 oz bottle poured into a snifter. Beautiful golden color, very clear. Thin lacy head. Medium heavy mouthfeel. Taste of cloves, vanilla, and bourbon. Nutmeg in the aftertaste. Pleasantly complex. Carbonation causes this beer to really linger in the mouth. Would buy again! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours to the most gorgeous bronze/copper/gold color imaginable. It’s very nice. The medium white head disapated to a dishwater looking head with excellent lacing. Yet, it still gleans a 5 on appearance. It’s just that pretty. The aroma is huge. Floral, perfume, caramel, spices. The aroma is well mixed for what it is and it doesn’t put me off like most floral/perfumey beers. The flavor is also quite good. Flowers, caramel malts, candi sugar, lemongrass, also a banana-bread-like quality. The palate is good. Slightly warming with a medium mouthfeel. I wonder if they’ve changed the recipe since it’s inception, because I think this one’s quite better than a 3.37.
