Pours a cloudy golden color with a thick foamy head. Head retention is mild. Lacing is good. Aroma of banana and mild clove. Bigger banana taste with some mild spiciness. Lighter bodied with moderate carbonation.

Great cold, only comes in bomber. Could improve by going to six pack bottles. Would be awesome on tap. Full bodied, almost orange in color Very little silt at bottom of bottle. Good, solid triple Belgium.

Gold (4) draft pour with white head; thin, almost no cap; excellent clarity and almost no lacing. Spicy Clove nose and I think I smell citrus. Spicy clove and subtle banana; pear in the middle and caramel presents itself as liquid warms; I swear there is a lemon in here too! Medium lite mouthfeel and moderate carbonation with some warmth from the alcohol. A very pleasing lite Tripple.

Aroma: quite pleasant with mild spice/clove notes. Belgian yeasty-ness also apparent.

Flavor: Back when I was a teenager, I used Stridex face pads to help control my acne. Occasionally when I'd sweat, some of the medication would seep into my lips, imparting this astringent and bitter taste that was difficult to shake. Some Tripels, Saisons, and Witbiers have this in varying degrees (coriander?). Unfortunately this same note was prominent with Adelbert's offering and lingered forever, so I detested the flavor. There are too many better alternatives in this style which don't exhibit this at all (e.g. La Fin Du Monde, St. Bernardus Tripel, etc). Personal preference....

On tap at Zax. Grainy,buttery, sweet aroma. Texture and body a bit light. Mildly sweet, floral flavors,not bad for an American version. Almost there....
