Spanked the monkey with Davo and slander at Mugs Ale House in Brooklyn, New York. malto couldn't make it.
Appearance: Opaque pale yellow color with thick off-white creamy head. Impressive lacing.
Smell: Bready, yeasty, and sharp tangy aroma.
Taste: Nice bitter flavor first hits the palate. Then follows a very sweet candy-like flavor that mixes really well with another tangy flavor. Quite delicious, with nice balanced flavors and not as over-poweringly sweet as some other trippels I've had.
Mouthfeel: Moderate carbonation.
Drinkability: Well, mine lasted like 10 minutes tops. Wow is this drinkable. But be careful - the alcohol went straight to my brain.
Comments: Served at room temperature which was just perfect. Quite a nice and dangerous brew. It is incredibly drinkable but also very strong. Watch out.
Serving type: on-tap

Pours a golden yellow color, fairly large fizzy head that fades at a quick pace but leaves a decent lasting cap afterwards, bubbles constantly rising from the bottom, no lacing on the glass.
Smell has a yeasty lemony aroma, touches of banana with a sweet malt backing.
Taste starts out with a strong Belgian candied flavor, lemon follows along with some coriander, carbonation is medium-high but closer to the high side, kind of explodes in your mouth and fills with foam, at first the alcohol is well hidden but with each sip it becomes more apparent.
Got this in a mixed pack, solid budget Tripel.
Serving type: bottle
