Cloudy, nearly opaque copper color. Fruity, banana-ish nose with a definite Belgian quality. Flavor has a slight tang with a juicy fruitiness. Very mild for a tripel. Well-balanced. High ABV is well-hidden.

Just a good beer from DH. Light taste for a triple. I'd do it again.

Did not care for Belgians at all when having this first time. Should revisit

Very nondescript, not unpleasant but lacking the balls a Trippel should have.
