A-pours a golden hay color with a respectable head, solid two fingers at least. lots of yeast solids floating about, still clear otherwise.

S-trappist funkiness, subliminal spiciness bombards my nose. slight old banana bread notes in there as well.

T-Complex and deceptive. Occasionally the alcohol reminds you its there, but mostly it is masked by the perfectly balanced malt and hop profile. The Belgian yeast really shines through on this one, gloriously engaging both the nose and taste buds each sip. Mildly sweet, funky, yet not very bitter. I'm sure the hops must be there though to balance the high gravity of this brew.

M-Smooth and silky. This brew coats the entire mouth and really feels nice. You could even possibly extend this to include "throatfeel", because the smoothness really continues even after each swallow.

D-Like all big belgian pales, this is way too drinkable. I want a sixer, and I want to drink this classy beer in the most unclassy way possible.

A-Cloudy yellow, extremely carbonated, one finger head.

S-Grass, lemon, spice, banana, cove and pepper.

T-Nice balance of floral notes, spies, grass, lemon and pepper.

M-Light, extremely carbonated and dry.

O-The spice bite is great and at the same time it was balance. A great tripel.

Fragrant and floral, which emphasizes the power of hops, it offers a mouth tasting and very fragrant hops (such a variety of hops provides a variety of flavors) to the body creamy, like a biscuit, and palate of ripe banana, evolving according to the maturity of the beer. The finish is both sweet and warm. A true beer tasting. Beer complex.
