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

A: The beer poured cloudy dark yellow in color with a finger high creamy white head that has excellent retention properties. A moderate amount of carbonation is visible from the rising bubbles.
S: There are moderate aromas of light fruits and spices in the nose along with some hints of alcohol. Smells of bananas and pears stand out in particular.
T: The taste is similar to the smell but the flavors of spices are a bit stronger and there is a mild amount of sweetness.
M: It feels medium-bodied and very smooth on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
D: The beer wasn't too difficult to drink considering its alcohol content, which is well hidden. I will definitely try this one again as it is one of the best representations of the style.

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

Appearance: Poured a 12 oz bottle, in to a Duvel Tulip glass produced a nice "three finger plus" head. Body is an orange/straw with suspended bubbles that just hang there. Laseing didn't quite stick around too long for a Belguim Triple that is.

Smell: In a word - Yeasty!

Taste: Butterscotch and bananas with maybe some clove taste on the finish.

Mouthfeel: Thinner than I expected, for whatever thats worth.

Drinkability: Not bad, I could actually drink more than one of the 11.2 oz bottles.
