This Belgian brew is a very gassy and very smooth drink with a hint of fruit. Tasty brew to say the least! Light blonde appearance with a fluffy head, could sip, gulp, or chug this one! There is essentially no bite and leaves you wanting another. This beer is a definite must!

4.1/5 rDev -4%
A: gorgeous golden color purging a perfect white and frothy head about 3 fingers deep.
Smell: nice and pleasant sweet and banana with some yeast. Not as hugely bright as other triples I have had.
T: classic tripel with a range of flavors coming in waves. Bitter ...sweet...banana...yeast. Not as overpowering as other triples I have had.
Mouthfeel: bubbly and light. Very pleasant
Overall: I really enjoyed this beer. Had never heard reviews or tasted before. I was really surprised by how much I liked drinking it all the way to the end. For me, normally a tripel is a bit of a challenge as it overpowers me by the end of the beer. This one tasted great all the way through. Would buy again and recommend.

Pours a hazy dandelion yellow with a pristine white head that pours about an inch thick before settling down to a thin covering. Good retention; superb lacing.
Hay, Lemon, and summer days. Towards the end it gets a bit spicier with some pepper and yeast odors.
Rich, big flavor. Touches of citrus and earthy grass tones. Kind of tastes like a "unit" to me. The wheat mellows it so nice that it becomes well-balanced enough to make individual flavors less obvious. Good hoppy hook at the end pulls you out of these delusions.
Good carbonation, round and the tiniest bit sticky. Nice mouth-coating flavor that lasts (got to be too much at the end of the bottle). Both lighter-tasting and heavier feeling than I expected.
Good Tripel. Definitely different than other Tripels, but worth trying. It had a superb head and was good tasting to me on the whole. Towards the end it got a little too sticky for my taste (but honestly that is something I don't like about most tripels). Would drink again.

4.35/5 rDev +1.9%
Appearance: golden yellow with fizzy white head, slightly hazy
Aroma: banana and clove, floral and spicy hops, soft pale male aroma
Taste: malt heaviness with palate coating flavor, banana and clove yeast flavors on finish, slight spicy hop bitterness of finish as well, non-detectable high alcoholic flavor
Mouthfeel: High carbonation, leaves mouth tingling after gulp, full body, soft malt character with heavy malt mouthfeel
Overall impression: A good example of a finely crafted Belgian Tripel, exhibiting notes of clove and banana with soft pale malt character and heavy malt mouthfeel. Crisp, cleansing carbonation revives palate for next gulp.
