Notes/Commercial Description:
This strong golden ale is marked by passion fruit and herbal notes in the aroma, with suggestions of banana and honey in the complex palate. The Tripel has a remarkably long and smooth finish.

750ml bottle. Batch #42
Pours a cloudy golden color with a fine white head, silky lace and nice pearling. The head diminished rather quickly – leaving a fine film. The clouding reduced some, but never completely cleared. Aroma of fruit and very yeasty—not very complex or aromatic, but still pleasant. The taste was tart with some sweetness and a dry biting finish. The mouthfeel was rather flat – not a lot of body and quite one-dimensional.
IMHO: Not a lot of character or body. Numerous qualities that can work in a well balanced beer were either under or over represented. It looks as if there have been other batches of this beer that have been much better.

My wife and I both thought there was a "bad beer" smell (Not skunked, but like a lower end beer). We also both experienced an unpleasant, especially bitter aftertaste that lingered after a smooth beginning. It is possible that we got a bad batch, so we will definitely try again. However, if this is the product in all its glory, the Dubbel is much better.

A: Solid amber color with a decent head when poured from a bottle.

S: hints of fruit with spices.

T: Delicious. Solid beer all around. Have already had the White, Double, and Double Reserve. This is quite good with a light texture and great taste.

M: sufficiently carbonated and light on the tongue, hints of spices and fruits. Delicious. Have already compared with the White, Dubel, Dubel Reserve, and Tripel today.

O: Solid beer. Would be happy to drink in just about any situation. Pretty fantastic.
