Bomber, purchased at the brewery. Slightly hazy orange-tinted gold. Spicy banana and yeast aroma. Slightly estery, moderately sweet palate with caramelized banana and spices as the dominant flavours. Sweet but drinkable, and faithful to the style. Another well-crafted Stone brew. jercraigs (10365) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 6, 2003
Dark yellow body with no lingering head. Slightest hint of spice and floral hops in the aroma. Tast is pleasantly sweet and thick and melds exquisitely with the alcohol. Many thanks to Kimchee! marcus (10222) - Sacramento, California, USA - SEP 27, 2010
Bottle shared by bhensonb. Pours clear yellowish gold with a thin white head and a huge fruity aroma. There is a standard tripel flavor with some banana ester and a peppery finish. GT (10000) - San Diego, California, USA - MAR 23, 2010
22oz bomber thanks to OldStyleCubFan! I’ve never even heard of this beer. So what’s the story with it? Anyway, pours blonde with a decent white head. Not much retention or lace. Aroma is laden with cloves, overripe bananas. Taste is very sweet, loads of candi sugar, bananas, red apples. Dry, powdery, messy finish. MartinT (9880) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 11, 2003
UPDATED: SEP 10, 2004 Exultant pineapples, pink grapefruit and bananas bathing in meady alcohol...Obeying to the fruity onslaught are the sagacious spices, swirling carefully in the thin and a bit undercarbonated body (for a triple) of still great malt cookies...Run of the mill Belgian stuff (meaning very good)...

UPDATED: DEC 19, 2012 Cloudy soft orange with a small thin white head. Sickly sweet fruit and sugar aroma, only slightly stinging initially on the lips. Very sweet throughout the drink, a bit thin, but not too bad. A good mouthfeel, a little salty and punchy, full of melon, lemon, unripe peaches and bread. bb (9268) - Alamo, California, USA - JAN 2, 2009

LIngering malt, light spice, light yeast, light bubblegum, and light earth. blipp (9268) - La Mesa, California, USA - JAN 29, 2016
Draft. Pours clear gold with a white head. Nice fruity phenolic yeasty base, apricot, light sweetness, and light herbal notes. Solid. drowland (8676) - Georgia, USA - AUG 8, 2010
8/6/10. Big thanks to Byron & Angie at Liquor Loft/Proof for bringing this back from Stone for me to share with the Tally crew! Nice fruity aroma with hints of dry grain. Wonderful Belgian flavor with hints of fruit, bubblegum, and dry grain. Very clean and very nice. Ibrew2or3 (8614) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - MAR 8, 2009
Big thanks to markwise for bringing this to the weekly tasting. This beer has eluded me going back to its initial release. Pours clear gold with thin white head. The aroma is perfumy, lemony then sweetness and various spice notes join the fun. I’m also getting notes of berries and faint cardboard with additional draws. The taste begins with a wave of sugar sweetness then mild lemon tart notes surface to go along with hints of apple, coriander, raisins and a touch of pepper. Very nice.
