look: 4.75 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Appearance. Pours a hazy orange-gold with a finger of frothy white head, good retention.

Smell. Bright citrus blossoms, light fruity Belgian yeast, some light malts, light clovey spice and some ripe banana.

Taste. Sweet malts, light citrus and orchard fruits, fruity belgian yeast, and a touch of bubblegum.

Mouthfeel. Medium-full body, medium carbonation.

Overall. Good for the style.

4.31/5  rDev +6.7%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25

Appearance: copper colour, a little misty; very fine, big head, colour of aioli, sticky and good retention

Aroma: great, full aroma - apricot, peach, mango, and mild spices & herbs - cilantro, touch of vanilla; butterscotch is the backbone; more exotic than expected

Taste & Mouthfeel: big butterscotch flavour is nicely cut by alcohol burn and astringent hops, preventing any chance to become cloying; more intense spice comes through just before the finish as well, and lingers - would call it peppery if anything, but hard to really place; very dry finish; fruit notes of aroma are negligible here; perfect carbonation, fine like champagne, and medium body

Overall: surprisingly easy drinking and keeps your interest throughout with interplay of spice, butterscotch and alcohol burn

A: Pours an exceptionally clear true gold with 2 fingers of off white head. Small amounts of lacing cling to the sides of the glass.

S: Pale caramel and butter followed by overripe bananas, light spices and yeast. Slight hints of rum and overal reminicent of bananas foster.

T: Yeasts are more prominant than the scent, along with malts and honey, light spices and overrie bananas.

M: Medium to chewy bodied with light carbonation.

O: Another great offering from TDD which is a slightly more malty take on a Belgian Tripel style.
