A - Color is golden. Somewhat of a white head that quickly disappears. Very little lacing.
S - Yeast, malt
T - Spices, sour towards the end. Hardly any alcohol taste. Somewhat sweet. Not allot of complexity.
M - Some carbonation, but not allot. Fairly light, very smooth.

Overall I gave it 4.0. Beer is very smooth and quite nice, but not very complex. Seems like a conservative copy of a Belgian. I would buy again but wish the flavor was a little more unique.

Sampling eight now on 8/14/14. Bottle chilled down to 36 degrees F in my beer cooler and poured in to a "CHEERS - BOSTON" handled glass stein.

Pours nice golden yellow in color with about a good half a finger of a white foamy head that settles to just a thick layering around the sides of the glass. Some spotty lacing is seen when sipped but that is about it. The aroma is just malts for the most part with a hint of some sweetness, like honey. More going on with the taste with the malt up from followed by some spice, maybe coriander. Finishes with a slight sweet that is a tad dry also. Overall, not really my style of brew.

Pobably the best American version of a triple I have had to this point. Has great bubble gum and banana notes along with the crispness you would from a triple. What makes this better than the average American interpretation is the complexity of flavor. Most American triples are a simple dry version of what the Belgian's do. This triple (while possessing the simple character of the triple) has the soft complexities that you get from the best Belgian's in this category. My only disappointment with this beer is that the head dissipates far faster than a Delerium or Duvel. It is gone in seconds and I expect a beer of this type to create a head that lasts.
