The aroma, which is always THE first impression, was deceiving. As this seems to be a beer that ferments in the bottle (give away is the little bit of "excitement" when I take the cap off) maybe I should be waiting a minute or 3 for the brew to blossom. This had an earthy funkiness, undoubtedly a character of the distinctive yeast therein. Rich, almost butter mouth-feel that was resplendent with an orange/tangerine introduction followed by some shy spices.

Imagine if you will, being at a party. In walks an intriguing looking possibility that you've never met. Your mind wanders & wonders. Curiosity tempered by experience seizes the moment & you edge closer for more sensory input. A scent wafts it's way into your environs. It's new...but not alien. But you thought you were Mr. Been There Done That. WRONG! Now it's too late, the intrigue is driving you crazy. You edge still closer. You want. You want so much to envelop, to experience completely that which dares challenge your little kingdom. This beer is that entity. It will charm you & disarm your cynicism.

Don't misconstrue my meaning here. It will NOT rock your world, but it sure will teach you that you have many pleasant roads & adventures that will open up to you if you give them the opportunity.

This is obviously a Classic. Something you owe to yourself to try.

Disclaimer: This beer made me say those things.

From bottle. Not the usual Belgium triple. None of the ubiquitous traits. No bread yeast head, flavor or nose. A very broad palate with lots going on. Sweetish. Lots of caramel/raisin like flavor. All adds up to a pleasent cover for the 8.5 ABV.

A - hazy golden color with a good head on her shoulders

S - earthy, rich and mellow scents. There is a distinct banana scent when opening but after the beer has breathed for a minute this dissapates.

T - wets the palate, banana notes and citrus up front. Nice subtle lingering sweetness and spices.

M - small bite with a really smooth finish

O - great beer. I suggest drinking this in late fall and winter.

Slightly hazy golden color with a two finger head with good retention that keeps a constant plate through out the degustation.
Aroma of pine, biscuit malt and pineapple.
Flavor of pineapple, Cointreau liquor, green grapes, pine, cloves, pears, banana and finishing with lemon and peppering yeast. Slightly tart with a dry aftertaste.
Light to medium body with a good effervescent carbonation.
Excellent tripel, full of a great fruity complexity and incredibly easy to drink despite its 8.5% abv. Very balanced and pleasant, hard to beat this fruity profile. Not sure if I was lucky, any way I will remember this had 8 months to maturity.
