Found a 330ml bottle at the Uncommon Ground Cafe in Chicago, served in a Westmalle triple goblet.

Cloudy golden appearance w/ a big thick creamy white head that did not diminish very much at all.

Sweet malts with a powerful hop scent with fruity notes as well.

Initial flavors are sweet bread malts, some citrus, A alcohol feel but not too much. Temperature is important, don't drink one too cold, when it got to about 50F the flavors popped out.

Great beer and very drinkable.

330ml Bottle - from the bank street lcbo for 3.75$

Appearance - Hazy yellow/amber colour with a large size fizzy and frothy white coloured head. There is an average amount of carbonation and there is some really good lacing. The head lasted for over 5 minutes before it was gone.

Smell - Lemon, grains, banana, yeast, clove/coriander, floral

Taste & Mouth - There is an above average amount of carbonation and I can taste lemons, bananas, and grains mixed with a honey sweetness. There is also some floral notes mixed with clove/pepper/coriander. It ends with a floral/spicy lemon aftertaste.

Overall - A beer that deserves its high score. The taste and smell are fantastic and it has a gorgeous appearance in the glass. One of the better tripels I've had and I look forward to drinking the rest of the bottles I picked up.

Paid $5.49 for a 12oz bottle from BevMo in San Jose, CA. Poured into my Chimay Chalice to review.

Light and fizzy white head of about an inch consistent of very large bubbles. Quite carbonated. Small floaters present; pour it slowly! A small frothy layer of head retention. Very cloudy golden straw yellow in color.

Nose is quite pale, with yeast, bread, Belgian Spice and banana dominating. Getting other spice note such as white pepper and mild clove. Biscuity malt and grassy hop help to balance and mellow everything out.

This is one of those beers that tastes even better than my nose predicted. Similar in characteristic to the nose, yet even better brought together and enjoyable.

Excellent mouthfeel. Creamy and medium bodied. Crisp and well carbonated, it has an almost invigorating feel. Somewhat dry on the close.

I tend to not be a fan of the style, so the fact that I enjoyed this one truly means it is among the best in its class.
