330 ml bottle. Pours golden with tall, long-lasting, foamy white head. Aroma is funky yeas, pale malt, spices and ripe fruit. Body is full and crisp. Spicy yeast, candy sugar, some hops and ripe fruit fill the mouth. Finish is long and spicy. Overall it’s good brew

look: 3 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.25

330 ml. bottle. Golden colour, pours a big head that fades soon, leaving a big lace and a ring on the surface. Smell of fruit, specially bananas. some Citrus, spices. Medium body, good carnbonation. Taste of bananas, citrus, peach. Good, but not excellent.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.25

A: nearly clear, gold-tinged yellow in color... impressive, tufted-cottony tower of foam, bright white in color, nice staying power... left the lees in the bottle - not much

S: unripe bananas, subtle shortbread malts, esters the scent of grape skins and nutmeg... the mildly medicinal, phenolic spice cuts through all else... not much depth behind it

T: assertive, lasting, vaguely clove-y phenolic spiciness with a supple hop bitterness atop a base of clean pilsner malts... perhaps a touch of toasted biscuit on the back end... all about the spicy alcohol notes here, as if they're trying to say "this is our tripel. it'll do the job!"

M: a bit too light-bodied and airy... good bit of residual carbonation - seems to expand and fill the mouth with air on the way down - not diggin' that... moderately dry finish... alcohol seems to stun and numb the taste buds a good bit

O: eerily similar to Victory's Golden Monkey... pretty basic, industrial tripel... kinda comes across as a premium malt liquor, or something of that nature... hardly extraordinary... had a few of Haacht's beers now - at the moment, kinda seeing them as Belgium's BMC - similar recipes, little variance

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

The initial pour is clear and straw yellow with a foamy white head and froth. Aroma of phenolic yeast, bread, honey and herbal hops. In the taste, more of the same, sweet malt, dusty, phenolic Belgian yeast, table sugar, and herbal malts. Very clean and easy drinking. Keeps bringing back a tempered sweetness and dry, woody hops. Medium bodied and well carbonated, dry, almost tannic finish. Overall, a good triple but just above average.

3.96/5  rDev +8.5%
look: 4.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

Rather translucent light blonde-colored ale with a massive three and a half finger head. Serious lace and rocky-top foam retention.

Big Belgian nose of spicy banana and malty white bread. Phenol clove and pear and chewy malts. Semi-musty and bruised fruitiness, thank you yeast. Forefront malty punch with layers of breadth. Reduced are the notes of alcohol and a spry citrusy hop.

Malts have the same character, but diminished, with added pilsner-y tones. Same clove, lesser yellow banana, spiciness, white bread, faint treacle with contributing sweetness, and finishing alcohol warmth. Sting of the booze, coupled with a lagery bitternesd, makes for a long aftertaste. Some semblance of citrusy hops are in play, but in small roles.

Chewy, chunky dried head and mushy wet body. It has a backbone, with that 9%. Not afraid to be a big boy. Good stuff.

Good. I'd love to try more from this brewery.
