A slow pour into my snifter rewards me with a finger of effervescent head. This is gone in a little under a minute, leaving just some bubbles and a thin ring. Lacing tries to cling to the glass, but like a 70 year old man without a blue pill, it just doesn't stay up.

First whiff is lightly sour apple. A hint of clove, some grapes, yeast and banana follow. Digging deeper reveals coriander with the cloves.

Yeast and a hint of wheat are very apparent at the start. Hints of grape follows and transitions into banana. Light hay, clove and coriander finish her off. It takes many sips to find all flavors, this is a very complex brew.

Very strong carbonation up front. The body is light-medium. Ending is lightly bitter.

Imbibed on tap at Good Karma on 12/14/12.

Pours a straw color, very slightly opaque, with a thin white head with no lacing. Aroma starts with sweet white bread with allspice, cinnamon, and clove. Surprisingly lacking in the banana category. The taste is very white bready at the base with strong spices as listed above, some candied sugar, and the ever recognizable noble hops sugary nectar. The feel is very balanced win a super dry finish. Even though I think that the finish is too dry, it completely covers the 9% ABV. Remarkable beer.

This hits all the notes of the Tripel style and strikes a chord with your taste buds. It's classic and the standard, Belgian born or not.

A- Banana gold with medium carbonation.

S- Like a Tripel should smell. Spices up front with a bit of sweet fruity smell. Tons of things to pick up on.

T- Banana, cloves, spices, belgian yeast, slight hops, notes of apple, pear, a tad of malt, and some very subtle hints of the alcohol in the aftertaste. Hides the ABV extremely well.

As it warms up the alcohol strengthens slightly and the fruit tastes become more vivid, leaving you with a very nice aftertase. I think it hits it's best as it begins to warm up a bit.

M- Fairly full body and very smooth. The carbonation fits the bill and compliments the body very well.

D- One of the easiest 9%'s to drink that I've discovered. I could see myself downing the whole 750ml beast very quickly if not for self control.

I bought four of these after I tasted my first in this review, and I plan to get 4 more. I'd dare to say this is my favorite readily available beer.
