A- Hazy orange bright tan pour with some sediment landing in the glass at the end. Head dissipated quickly leaving carbonated bubbles flowing quickly upward.

S- Belgian yeast paired with light citrus fruit and overwhelming bananas. Alcohol is almost completely hidden behind the spices and aromas of yeast and fruit.

T- much like banana bread beers that I have had but with Belgian flair, and a bit lighter. This is a light airy tasting beer that allows the spices and fruit to dominate the palate. As the beer warms, the face will flush and the buzz of alcohol will find your senses. Just an experience, almost great as a one and done kind of drink.

M- almost a champagne like carbonation makes this more of a slow sipper. The complexity of flavors makes this an intimidating beer.

O- not my favorite Belgian style, as I prefer a dark quad. But this beer does a great job being a Tripel, as long as you expect a Tripel. Trappist beers are quite simply the standard by which most other beers should be measured as far as quality of ingredients and passion of brewing. I'm a fan.
