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.

A nice dark gold color. Pours with a stiff tight white head. Clings all the way to the bottom of the glass. Aroma is slighlty sweet and spicey. Nice carbonation, a great warm flavor of spices mixed in with alcohol. An enjoyable brew ! Cant wait to try the others

Appearance all plosive, puffy and proud with a pinpoint prickly persona. Damn good brew! Pours yellow yet hazy and a touch golden. Champagne like carbonation with bubbles actively heading towards the beer's surface. Good headage that keeps puffing with swirling. Aromatics include tropical fruit, creme caramel and pecan pie. A wonderfully complex brew that hints of exotic fruits, anise, and ripe melon. In the mouth a nice interplay between sweet and bitter. Very warming indeed, with a touch of anteseptic!! One may be all I need, but this drinkability here is high as this beer simply rocks. It is sooo damn good! Practicably pornographic!!

S-alcohol, cloves, notes of hops and spices

T&M-Very good tripel nice and smooth with notes of alcohol and spice carbonation is good and very smooth.

D-Could easily have this around all the time one of the best balanced tripels i have ever had.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Pouring into a chalice resulted in a hazzy yellow/gold character, with a finger of white, short lived head.

Slightly bready aroma with a hint of spices. A trace of alcohol is also detectable from the smell.

Very bold flavor. Some yeasty flavors, some flowery flavors, a minor sweetness and a hint of spice, backed up by a hint of alcohol. Alcohol has a nice warming characteristic when swallowed. A little bit extra carbonation seems to be present for me.

Thoroughly enjoyable, though probably more in moderation than in a session. Half way through a single 341ml bottle I had already begun to feel an alcohol buzz. Something for those miserable fall/winter days perhaps?

Although I have been a lover of fine brew for some time this is the first beer that has compelled me to share my feelings about it to the world. I in fact opened an account to share my feelings about this brew.

Smell and taste warm banana bread, flowers, citrus and cloves. The alcohol at 9% is imperceptible - i could and have drank this all night

High carbonation - nice lasting head - with patchy lacing.

As a canadian I feel a little more patriotic knowing this masterpiece was brewed here.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Bottle poured into Ommegang stem glass, a nice Christmas present from my girlfriend.

Two finger head

Hazy straw color

S: Barley, cloves, spices, sugar, and a whiff of alcohol.

T: Candi sugar, barley, banana, grapes, and hop bitterness.

M: Light and refreshing

Overall, this is a great beer that betrays its alcohol content. I could not tell it was 9% ABV, but it is still not a session beer. Truly, it is worth trying. I'll have this in my fridge again.
