2.81/5  rDev -35%

Appearance: Cloudy, golden, long lasting & thick head. Very little lacing.

Smell: Alcohol, banana, bubblegum

Taste: Heavy alcohol flavor, enough that it overshadows everything else. Light taste of caramel.

Mouthfeel: Smooth, slightly creamy, carbonation is not too heavy.

Overall: Too much of an alcohol taste. I don't know if I got my hands on a bad bottle, I wouldn't say it's undrinkable, I did finish the bottle, but it was way too boozy for my taste. The alcohol taste and aftertaste just overshadow everything that could be great about this beer. I understand that it's a tripel, and supposed to be alcoholic, but this is a little above and beyond to me.

Appearance: Murky pale gold with an excellent head and very good lacing.

Smell: Yeast, banana, cloves and other spices, bubblegum.

Taste: Yeast, biscuit, banana, cloves, coriander, bubblegum, hints of citrus. .As it warms the spiciness increases as the banana flavor recedes, leaving you with a nice clove flavor.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied, creamy yet smooth. The clove sticks with the tongue for a while.

The Verdict: Very very good. I was expecting to be overwhelmed by this Belgian Tripel after reading all the rave reviews, but to be honest I prefer their Don De Dieu. Maybe because I just had a Hef from a local brewer that tastes very similar this.

Sorry, maybe I got a bad bottle. If nothing else the clove aroma and taste is something that is totally a turn off to me. I did try to finish the bottle by holding my nose, still had a strong after taste of clove. I must be the only one out of 25k reviews that couldn't drink it. I can't handle "Any" clove no matter what it's used in.

Good for all that like this beer! Was not in my realm of drinkability .

I still have a bomber left.

Pours straw yellow and cloudy with some white head that stays around through the end but leaves no lacing.

Smells of yeast has hints of spice. Smells like it will have a complex taste. Let's find out.

Has warmth to it and a slight, but not overpowering alcohol taste. I'm tasting mulled spices and caramel.

Mouthfeel is good. It's got good body and a nice foaminess.

This is a tasty beer and a good choice for drinking while debating friends.
