I liked the golden color. Not much head. Nice spicey, belgian smell. Taste was quite of a decent belgian. Have always enjoyed this one from the first time I had it.

I generally like Victory brews. This one I did not. I felt the color was not appealing, the mouth feel watery and taste of bitterness did not sit well with me. I am not sure what it is but the bitter after taste over powered the experience of this brew for me.

There is a strong banana aroma and flavor, not surprising Ina Tripel. The spices that were added are rather overwhelmed. Mouthfeel is nice, not as thick as expected.
