Bottle pours a hazy yellow with a medium sized head a not much lasting lace. The aroma is of cheese like yeast and sweet malt. The flavor is cheese like yeast, sweet malt, peppery alcohol, and spicy with a good Tripel body. Overall, this is pretty good. Not the best Tripel, but still pretty good. ace1317 (4) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - FEB 4, 2004 does not count
Hazy yellow/orange color, good head. Carbonated with very small bubbles. Taste is light, airy, and complex. Masks abv extremely well. Perhaps my all time favorite. jeffc666 (1984) - Fairfax, Virginia, USA - FEB 3, 2004
Best before 10/02/06. It pours a hazy golden with a massive foamy white head. The carbonation is very active on this one. A fruity, yeasty aroma that consists of banana, orange, and peppery spices wafts from the glass. The flavor has tons of orange peel and sweet banana backed by a dry almost bready malt. The body is medium and fairly dry. The lingering aftertaste is a tad astringent, but not unpleasant. Overall a another nice brew from this great Canadian brewery. hershiser2 (3448) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - FEB 2, 2004
Paid $2.39 for a 12 oz zingle bottle. Best before 1-23-06... well it's 12-10-03, so I had a while to drink this one.
Unfiltered, ugly cloudy yellow, but that head is massive and very impressive. Foamy, creamy off white, lacing beautifully.
Strong alcohol in the nose. This beer smells much better from about a foot away then it does wafting right under my nose. From a foot away, this beer smells pretty nice- not that it's bad close up, but it's strongly scented- alcohol and banana.
MMMM, really nice! Sweet alcohol, hints of banana, and finishes smooth. The alcohol is not well masked, but it doesn't need to be.
A very fine beer; not for the weak. bu11zeye (13029) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - FEB 2, 2004
(Bottle) Pours a pale straw color with a thick white frothy head. Has a banana aroma and a sweet yeast flavor.

I'm not the biggest fan of tripels. Honey-sweet, malty, with a warming alcohol follow. shotgun1431 (138) - franklin furnace, Ohio, USA - JAN 29, 2004
Thick golden color with a small white head. Slight sweet fruity aroma. Taste is sweet hoppy alcohol. Pretty good. GEOBRAU (188) - Mesa, Arizona, USA - JAN 26, 2004
Bottle: bannana aroma, very heady retained well. Malty with warming alcohol presence. A notch below the belgian Abbey ales I've tried. Crockett (1119) - Southampton, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 24, 2004
UPDATED: MAR 17, 2005 This is a wonderful beer. It’s a little strange to get hold of but she’s a beautifully crafted tripel blond machine. Lots of citrus sweetness in the nose, with a fresh bread and grain aroma. The head is of pure white lacey fluff. Golden cloudy ith little floaters. avours are very deep. Some bottles, the taste is very much of alcohol. Other bottles, the Unibroue yeast with coriander and lemon with some fruit and bubble gum. tidiaguy (168) - Hawley, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 19, 2004
Nice sudsy white head on top of a pale straw colored body. Yeasty phenolic aroma with a little bite of citrus and spice. Flavor is yeasty and malty with a hint of some fruit flavors. Palate is spicey and dry.
