A rather unique brew. a cross between a dubbel and tripel.
very malty and rather sweet but still dry and subtle.
available cask-conditioned - very smooth this way.

Pretty damn good, one of my favorites at the GABF. Sweetish, "purple" tasting beer. BrianO (138) - Ambler, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 8, 2003
Pours reddish-brown, like a dark dubbel, with barely any head. Looks a little cloudy too. Plums/raisins and slightly sour aroma. Flavor is bold with tartness, some fruit, a little yeasty. Not too carbonated. Very complex as with most good belgium style beers. Very good no doubt. jeffc666 (1984) - Fairfax, Virginia, USA - DEC 7, 2003
Murky black/brown body with a medium tan head. Aroma is sour with some dark fruit. Flavor is tart cherry and complex. Dry sour body with hints of alcohol. MilkmanDan (1943) - Eagan, Minnesota, USA - DEC 11, 2003
Murky dark, slightly red. Nose a bit musty, some sweetness there. Is sugary and sweet up front, has a fruity sourness. Finishes mildly smoky, some tobacco. A very interesting mix of flavors.

This is a very unique Belgian. The aroma is spicy, with a very dark murky pour, and a HUGE head. The taste is strongly medicinal with a strong alchohol bite, spicey and herbal, tart and citrusy. A nice mixture of several Belgian styles. ryanscourt (1477) - Latrobe, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 4, 2013
Black/dark brown, nice lacing. Strong malty and fruity aroma. Flavor is follows sweet. Really like the nice fruity flavors. Nice mouth fill, with low carbonation. Didn’t really notice the trippel spiciness, but the large dubble malt body is there. Alcohol is apparent as well but blends in nicely. Aftertaste is pleasant as smooth, Apparently only comes out every couple years. Best one ive tried from yards. hopdog (12584) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 13, 2013
750ml bottle. Poured a dark mahogany color with an averaged sized off white head. Aromas of bananas, dark fruits, all around fruity, and yeast. Tastes of bananas, some bread, dark fruits, and chocolate. bp (922) - New York, New York, USA - MAY 4, 2013
Bottle: pours dark brown with a thin tan head, aroma is fruity and chocolaty, taste is dark fruit, malty, chocolate and full bodied. Nice. Beerathon (1683) - Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 5, 2013
Dark fruit flavors and aroma, nice strong ABV finish. This beer is very tasty.
