After tasting this at the brewery and drinking half of a six pack over the past two months, I feel like I should review this beer.

Pours a light golden, clear yellow with lively carbonation and quite a bit of sediment in the bottle. Nice live yeast to keep this beer for a while(a few of the 6ers in the store had yeast, as well).

Yeasty funk, alcohols, and spice on the nose. Some earthy hops come through.

Take the strongest Belgian you've ever tasted, and add some spices. I'm not usually a fan of spiced beers, especially in the Belgian style, but this is delicious. At ~10% ABV, the Belgian yeasties hide it well. My mouth is just overrun with Belgian yeast flavors and caramel malt flavors.

Slightly creamy, well carbonated, a little warming.

Almost perfect Belgian Triple in my book.

Golden yellow in color with a murky, viscous appearance. Poured with a short, dense, white foam that slowly reduced to a wispy cap. Medium bodied with rich tangy, slightly subdued carbonation. Sweet banana and yeasty aromas with spicy corriander notes. Sweet banana flavors and yeast up front transitioning to tangy spices through the middle. Spicy, corriander and yeast flavors intensify from the middle to end. Finishes with a heavy, yeasty aftertaste,

I can't believe some of these. "blah", reviews.
I know, I know this a sort of snobby review club, but heck...give this beer a big heads up!
Don't dance around it's, "...interesting taste", or, ...bannana flavor...", or hem and haul about the intricasies of this beer.

Tell it like it IS!!

This is a damn good, powerful, flavorful beer.

I will order this again in a flash.

It is now in my list of beers that I will look for.

Btw---it looked fantastic in my Duval glass.

Now this is a winter beer! Though I wouldnt hesitate to drink it at other times too. Loaded up on alcoholic goodness, excellent for piling up the beer sweaters, but careful, cuz it doesn't taste like a 10%er. Pours an opaque golden amber brown sugar honey gold. Crisp, carbonatey, and creamy on the mouthfeel. Taste is ruddy, very balanced, malty enough for anyones liking but not overdone. I really like it. Certainly not a session beer and not just cuz of the awesome ABV; its like a fine desert in how rich it is. But perfect on a snowy day like today. If gingerbread men could drink, this would be their beer (cuz their not gonna drink ginger beer, thatd be canabalism). Cheers!
