Golden in color with a bouquet of fruit and spice, this Belgian style Tripel has a touch of sweetness and a crisp, euphoric finish.

Pours a HUGE, dense, white head that has good persistence and laces nicely. Sweet malt and floral hops combine with a slightly banana/clove yeast aroma. Radiant, crystal clear color . Starts with a sweet, sweet maltiness and rich booziness. Builds into a nice estery, booziness, a touch of hop bitterness as this all peaks, and then it smooths (still boozey) into velvety malt.

Overall, not bad. MINE HAS NO YEAST, so that REALLY dings the flavor. I've had this in the years before, with the yeast, and it's great. I had it at the brewery this year, with the yeast, and that was great, too. The same problem hit Bedlam. I had talked to someone at Ale Asylum who said it is that the new tanks are bigger, so apparently this results in way less yeast in all their brews this year. Bedlam was also yeast-free when I bought bottles...[grumble]. A huge knock to the flavor.
I will re-review this once I get a bottle with yeast in it...
