This was poured an immediately developed a HUGE foamy white head, with very small bubbles. The retention was excellent and when it (finally) died down it left excellent lacing around the goblet. The body was unfiltered with sediment suspended, and color chaging from light at the bottom to dark gold at the top. The aroma was of bananas, apple, citrus, cloves and sweet candy and fruits.
The taste was excellent, with an complexity as rich as I've tasted. Bananas, citrus, and clove were most present while sweet candy, yeasts, hops and fruits were defintiely there in spades. It was extremely creamy and enjoyable, with mild carbonation. This is truly an excellent beer.

A - Huge fluffy head. Hazy opaque orange color. Good lacing. Very attractive in my Duvel tulip.

T - Sweet bananas upfront, aftertaste is very spicy with noticeable alcohol.

M - Fairly dry but smooths out as it warms.

D - A very tasty beer. I will have this one again.

A- Pours a hazy straw color with tall light white head.

S- Light citrus notes with a mice yeast twist. Light sweetness and hints of cloves in the background.

T- Leads with subtle lemon and apple notes, midpalate is yeast twist of sourness, with fruit juice sweetness on the finish.

M- Light, crisp, and refreshing. Could be a touch light on the carbonation but nothing that can't be wrung out to desired levels.

D- 9% what? This stuff drinks like uber delicious sparkling cider. Very light yet complex.

Poured from a 12 oz. bottle into a snifter. "Best before 07-31-11."

Pours a yellowish orange, cloudy, with a smallish head (that may have been the result of a sub-par pour).

Nose is fruity and sweet, with a fair amount of spice. Flavors of banana and spice (clove?) dominate. Slight alcohol burn that comes in at the end, though it's pretty well hidden. Surprisingly light mouthfeel, but I have very little experience with tripels. Lots of small bubbles. Ends on the dry side, with almost a chalky feel.

The pour into a shaker raises a one inch plus head, off white , very solid, but becomes rocky over time. Recedes to a still very thick layer that lasts the whole glass. The body is hazy yellow translucent. The nose is yeasty, sweet, a bit peppery, slightly hoppy. The taste echoes the smell, with a focus on pepper and yeast characteristics. The mouth is medium, but the carbonation is a tad too high for me. The yeast adds more fun to the drink when poured in. A tasty brew, and quite good with vodka sauce.
