Poured into a Pint Glass.
A - Pours a yellowish brown with a thin layer of white head on top and has TONS and TONS of floaties.
S - Big Banana and Clove smell right away, also sugar and banana bread.
T - Lots of clove right off the bat, banana bread, bitter hops, also quite boozy too.
M - Light bodied and oily, also tons of prickly carbonation, almost too much.
D - Just too much clove for me to be something I would buy again, if you like cloves and bananas then you will definitely like this.

Sapent Trip pours a nice golden color with a good sized non lacing head. There is a strong ester and yeast like aroma. The flavor has a strong banana taste and is very creamy. There is a good feel and good body to this beer, with strong flavors. Overall its full of creamy banana flavors.

12 ounce bottle into chalice, bottled on 5/6/2014. Pours moderately hazy/cloudy golden orange color with a 1 finger dense off white head with good retention, that reduces to a thin cap that lingers. Light spotty soapy lacing clings around the glass, with some light streaming carbonation. Aromas of apricot, orange, golden raisin, pear, apple, light banana, clove, pepper, biscuit, candi sugar, herbal, floral, and yeast earthiness. Very nice aromas with good balance and complexity of fruity/earthy yeast ester and bready malt sweetness; with good strength. Taste of apricot, orange, golden raisin, pear, apple, light banana, clove, biscuit, candi sugar, herbal, floral, light pepper, and yeast earthiness. Fair amount of earthy yeast spice on the finish; with lingering notes of apricot, golden raisin, pear, apple, light banana, clove, biscuit, candi sugar, herbal, light pepper, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice complexity and robustness of fruity/earthy yeast and bready malt sweetness; with a great malt/yeast balance and zero cloying sweetness after the finish. Light-medium carbonation and medium bodied; with a very smooth and fairly crisp/bready mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is a very nice tripel style. All around good complexity and balance of fruity/earthy yeast and bready malt flavors; and very smooth to sip on for the ABV. A very enjoyable offering.
