750ml bottle. When the 4 horsemen come blazing into town, you can rest assure I’ll be staggering around with a bottle of this. cAPSLOCK (156) - Dallas, Texas, USA - NOV 7, 2004
Light yellow, a little hazy. Very fruity aroma, acidic banannas. It is very carbonated, almost artificially so with large bubbles and this contributes to serious spike in the mouthfeel, which is more siginificant than its look would lead you to believe. The taste is good, but I was expecing more from the name... somewhat 2 dimensional.. Somewhat sweet and a litle sour. Packs a whallop. pineypower (3295) - Ocean County, New Jersey, USA - NOV 3, 2004
Pours out a cloudy yellowish color, well carbonated with a white head. It has a fruity/malty aroma with some notes of spice. It has a smooth, sweet taste with some complexity with a well disguised ABV. GonZoBeeR (3061) - ste-catherine, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 2, 2004

Bottle. Cloudy, yellow colour. Semi-creamy white head. Acidic aroma. Fruity, slightly yeasty (in a positive way) flavour. Full-flavoured, nice body.

Musky, sharp, yeasty, bread like and citrus aroma. Lively looking ale with excellent carbonation, a pale hazy color and a firm white head. Supremely balanced flavor with a bit of tartness, some yeast, a touch of malt, and a little smooth sweetness. Finishes slightly dry. Very nice. I did get a bit of a metallic flavor though and the body could be punched up a liitle, if one wants to be critical. A previous rating compares it to a cross of Duvel and a Trippel, which I think is quite accurate. DKlovesbeer (172) - Sarasota, Florida, USA - OCT 23, 2004
The bottle started foaming immediately after I opened it so I quickly poured the beer into my Chimay Trappist glass and watched the outrageous carbonation go to work. This beer pours a rich golden hue with a quickly dissipating white head (no lacing), thousands of Champagne character bubbles, and small chunks of sediment suspended throughout the body. Initially the nose is very yeasty and Champagne-like but after a few sniffs heavy malt fragrance, sweet fruit, and alcohol aromas make their own appearances. Any hops aroma is sadly absent. Flavor, yeasty, hoppy, and malty; this beer has a very well rounded palate! Initially I was impressed as all hell and after closer inspection here is what I found: Alcohol flavor is quite pronounced throughout the palate. While yeast flavors dominate the first sip, subsequent sips reveal an abundance of hops and malt flavor. Finish is dry with a satisfying bite at the very end. Overall, I have mixed feelings about this beer but I’m glad I had a chance to try it. I’d drink it again, but it would have to be on just the right occasion.... One last thought: This beer would probably go very well with roast duck. verymerrymonk (413) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - OCT 22, 2004
Beautiful cloudy blond with a huge, fluffy white head. Aroma of candy sugar, banana and a hint of alcohol. Flavor is good, a slight bitterness with lots of spice and fruit. Mouthfeel slightly reminiscent of Aventinus. Very nice. mustang3 (254) - Whitby, CANADA - OCT 21, 2004
Not my favourite interpretation of a tripel but very enjoyable. Pale, hazt and golden with a very thin white head. The flavour is where this beer loses me somewhat. It’s very good but it’s dry and spicy. I prefer tripels with more tropical fruit flavour, still quite good with that typical and enjoyable Unibroue yeast flavour. robbier (12) - noordwijkerhout, NETHERLANDS - OCT 21, 2004
Hazy golden, with a thick white head.
Crispy, dry with a nice bitterness.
Tastes like a mix of Duvel and a good tripel.
